Abstract

The patient is a 58 year old female admitted for liver failure secondary to liver ischemia caused by a hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm compressing the portal vein. On POD3 she experienced massive intra-abdominal hemorrhage requiring IR coil embolization of the entire hepatic artery. She was then listed for liver transplant in anticipation of fulminant liver failure resulting from ligation of the hepatic artery. In this case we will discuss the frequency of liver failure resulting from embolization or ligation of the hepatic artery, as well as how to determine which of these patients eventually require liver transplantation compared to those that remain clinically compensated.
