Abstract

Background: Major hepatic necrosis (MHN) is a common complication after angioembolization (AE) for severe liver injuries. We compared the outcomes of two treatment modalities. Methods: Patients with MHN were retrospectively reviewed from January 2002 to October 2007. Demographics, Injury Severity Scale score, length of stay, admission Glasgow Coma Scale Score, mortality, transfusion requirements, intra-abdominal complications, admission physiologic variables, and the number and type of abdominal procedures (operative or nonoperative) were collected. These patients were then divided into two groups-those treated with hepatic lobectomy (HL) and those treated with multiple procedures including serial operative debridements and/or percutaneous drainage (Ir/Or). Results: Thirty patients (41%) with MHN were identified from 71 patients who had AE. Sixteen patients with MHN underwent HL and 14 patients underwent multiple IR/OR procedures. The two groups were similar at baseline, except that the HL group had a higher Injury Severity Scale score. Outcomes between the two groups were similar. There was a significantly higher complication rate and increased number of procedures in the IR/OR group. There were no deaths in patients who had early HL (
