Case Report

Experience in Hepatic Artery Embolisation in Paediatric Hepatic Blunt Trauma

HY Wong, JWC Mou, KW Chan, KH Lee


Non-operative management is the current mainstay of treatment for hepatic blunt trauma unless haemodynamic instability is present. Evidence for hepatic artery embolisation (HAE) for ongoing bleeding in hepatic trauma is well established in adults but there are only several case reports in the paediatric population. We herein report the first paediatric case of isolated grade IV hepatic injury successfully managed with primary HAE at our institution.
