Liver rupture in a patient with HELLP syndrome. A case report
Castriconi M., Aragiusto G., Ansalone M., Aloj G., Grasso A., Bartone G., Renda F.
Liver rupture and emorrhage, are the most unusual and serious complications of HELLP syndrome (hemolysis ‹ elevated liver enzymes ‹ low platelet count). The management should be aggressive by treating coagulopathy and favouring a prompt delivery. Liver rupture remains a surgical emergency with control of bleeding based on trauma surgery. The aggressive approach to the management of these patients led to a remarkable decrease of mortality rates.
