Percutaneous approach with AngioVac system for complicated hepatic
rupture in pregnancy.
AbstractABSTRACT The hepatic rupture durig pregnancy is a catastrophic clinical
issue associated with high fetal and maternal mortality. We describe the
case of hepatic hemangioma rupture complicated by massive thrombosis of
the inferior vena cava successfully treated by using AngioVac aspiration
system. Although an aggressive surgical strategy is recommended, a
multidisciplinary approach using modern devices can represent a new
frontier in the treatment of these patients.
