Abstract

We describe a unique method for obtaining distal control in a ruptured hepatic artery aneurysm. A 34-year-old man with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type IV presented with a ruptured left hepatic artery aneurysm. The distal aneurysm was within the parenchyma of the liver. Proximal control was obtained with pledgeted sutures. The distal hepatic artery was difficult to control. Injection of 5 mL of thrombin into the distal left hepatic artery resulted in hemorrhage control. This technique should be considered in select patients in whom distal arterial control is challenging.
