1 Hapatobilliary trauma Dr awad al dumour Al basheer hospital

2 Background  Largest solid abdominal organ,fixed position  Second most common injured, but most common cause of death after abdominal trauma  Blunt MVA most common  80% adults, 97% children-conservative rx

3 Locate your liver Upper right quadrant deep to inferior ribs Dome of liver abuts aganst inferior diaphragm surface Left/right lobes Gall bladder is thin muscular sac on inferior surface where bile collects (1 above) 1. ANATOMY

4 Measuring liver span by percussion: variation in liver span Variation in liver span according to the vertical plane of examination. Since there is variability in where clinicians determine the mid-clavicular line to be, the inevitable consequence is that liver span may also vary even if multiple observers are perfectly accurate in measuring it. Percuss your liver Easiest organ to percuss Dense tissue gives rock- solid sound/feel on percussion Mid-clavicular line moving inferiorly from mid-chest to lower right quadrant

5 Portal Triad - Common Bile duct - Common Bile duct - Proper Hepatic Artery - Proper Hepatic Artery - Portal Vein - Portal Vein


7 Anatomy  Cantile described main divisions along a main plane from GB fossa to IVC. Divides liver into equal halves.  Couinaud developed 4 sectors and 8 segments, divided into vertical and oblique planes, defined by the 3 main hepatic veins and transverse plane thru right and left portal branches.

8 Anatomy  Hepatic veins lie between segments.  Left hepatc vein divides left lobe into medial and lateral segments.  Middle hepatic vein divides liver into left and right lobes.

9 Anatomy  Right hepatic vein divides right lobe into anterior and posterior segments.  A horizontal line thru left and right main portal veins is used to divide lobes into inferior and superior segments.  The 8 liver segments are numbers clockwise on the frontal view.

10 Liver Segments


12 Injuries  Subcapsular hematoma or intrahepatic hematoma.  Laceration  Contusion  Hepatic vascular disruption  Bile duct injury  86% of injuries have stopped bleeding at time of exploration.  Decreased transfusion req.With conservative.

13 Injuries  Subcapsular hematoma or intrahepatic hematoma.  Laceration  Contusion  Hepatic vascular disruption  Bile duct injury  86% of injuries have stopped bleeding at time of exploration.  Decreased transfusion req.With conservative.

14 CLASSIFICATION Penetrating wounds  Stabs wounds, gunshots….  Level of injury  Frequency of organ injury : 1.Liver 37% 2.Small bowel 26% 3.Stomach 19% 4.Colon 17% 5.Major vessels & retroperitoneal structures

15 Penetrating wounds

16 CLASSIFICATION Blunt trauma  RTAs, direct blows, falls, …..  Sudden application of pressure, seat belt syn  Frequency of organ injury 1.Spleen 25% 2.Kidney 12% 3.Intestine 15% 4.Liver 15% 5.Retro peritoneal haematoma 13%

17 CLASSIFICATION Iatrogenic injury Due to diagnostic & therapeutic procedures 1.Endoscopy 2.External cardiac massage 3.Peritoneal dialysis 4.Paracentesis 5.PTC 6.Liver biopsy

18 Classification  I-Subcapsular hematoma<1cm, superficial laceration<1cm deep.  II-Parenchymal laceration 1-3cm deep, subcapsular hematoma1-3 cm thick.  III-Parenchymal laceration> 3cm deep and subcapsular hematoma> 3cm diameter.

19 Classification  IV-Parenchymal/supcapsular hematoma> 10cm in diameter, lobar destruction, or devasularization.  V- Global destruction or devascularization of the liver.  VI-Hepatic avulsion

20 LIVER INJURIES  Incidence  Clinical picture  Management 1. Non operative 2.Drainage of deep lacerations Sump drain 3.Removal of devitalized tissue 4.Pringle maneuver, ? HA ligation where ? 5.Segmentectomy ? Lobectomy ? Packing 6.Repair CBD over T- tube

21 Pathophysiology  Friable parenchyma, thin capsule, fixed position in relation to spine.  Right lobe gets hit more since its larger, and closer to ribs.  85% injuries involve segments 6,7,8 from compressioin against ribs, spine, abd wall.  Shear forces at attachments to diaphragm  Transmission thru right hemithorax.

22 Pathophysiology  Liver injured easily in children since ribs are compliant, force transmitted.  Liver not as developed in children, with weaker connective tissue framework.  Iatrogenic injuries by biopsies, biliary drainage, TIPS, can cause capsular tears and bile leaks, fistulas, hemoperitoneum.

23 Clinical Details  Symptoms of injury are related to blood loss, peritoneal irritation, RUQ tenderness, and guarding.  Unrecognized delayed abcess  Bilomas  Signs of blood loss may dominate the picture.

24 Clinical Details  Elevated liver tests  Biliary peritonitis (nausea, vomiting, abd pain).  DPL has high sensitivity, 1-2% complication rate.  Plain x-rays non-specific.  CT scan diagnostic procedure of choice.  Hida for leaks, angio for hemorrhage.

25 Physical examination  Ecchymosis or abrasions,respiratory pattern  inspect urethra & perineum  Examine the back,sprung the pelvis.  PR exam why ?  Bowel sounds  Palpation spasm & rigidity ? Rebound  Foley catheter Why ? when?  Re evaluations why ?

26 Limitations  FAST sensitivity highest (98%) for grade 3 injuries or greater. Negative findings do not exclude hepatic injury.  Emergency sono findings demonstrating free fluid, parenchymal injury, or both demonstrate overall sensitivity for detection of blunt abdominal trauma of 72%.  Angiogram may fail to detect active bleeding.

27 ADJUVANT STUDIES FOR ASSESSMENT  Laboratory studies Hct, UA, S amylase, other tests baseline  Radiological studies PFA, Erect CXR,US, CT ? Contrast, IVU, Urethrogram, Cystogram and Angiography.  Four quadrant tap test

28 DIAGNOSTIC PERITONEAL LAVAGE  Indications of DPL  Contraindications  Technique, precautions Results are positive IF 1.RBCs > 100,000/cubic mm 2.WBCs > 5000/cubic mm 3.Amylase >200 units 4.Presence of bacteria,bile, faeces 5.Rough index

29 CT Scans  Accurate in localizing the site of liver injury, associated injuries.  Used to monitor healing.  CT criteria for staging liver trauma uses AAST liver injury scale  Grades 1-6  Hematoma,laceration,vascular,acute bleeding,gallbladder injury,biloma.

30 Angiography  Demonstrates active bleeding  Transcatheter embolization may be the only treatment required.  Findings include contusion, laceration, hematoma, pseudoaneurysms, fistulas.  Embolization can reduce transfusion requirements, stenting for fistulas.

39 Biliary Injury & Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

40 Causes of Biliary Injury in LC  Failure to properly occl. the cystic duct  Injury to the ducts in the liver bed caused by entering a plane too deep to the gallbladder  Cautery Misuse – thermal necrosis  ductal tissue loss  Pulling forcefully up on the gallbladder when clipping the cystic duct  tenting injury to the junction of the CBD & common hepatic duct

41 Strasberg SM, Hertl M, Soper NJ. An analysis of the problem of biliary injury during laparoscopic cholecystectomy. J Am Coll Surg. 1995 Jan; 180 (1) : 101-25.  Reviews revealed the incidence of biliary injury during open CCY to be 0.1-0.3%  1995 – Strasberg’s study which incl. more than 124,000 laparoscopic cholecystectomies (LC) reported in the literature found the incidence of major bile duct injury to be 0.5%. Biliary Injuries During Cholecystectomy (CCY)

42 Diagnosis of Bile Leaks  Persistent fullness, anorexia, abdominal pain, fever & tenderness,jaundice, elev WBC  High level of suspicion following surgery  Bile draining from a drain left in the operative field

43 Radiographic Diagnosis of Biliary Injury  US/CT – detect bilomas (poss. perc drainage)

44 Radiographic Diagnosis of Biliary Injury  US/CT – detect bilomas (poss. perc drainage)  HIDA – presence of active bile leak (physiologic)

45 ERCP  Provides exact anatomical diagnosis of bile duct leak; while allowing treatment w/ decompression of the biliary tree.  Principal of treatment is to establish a pressure gradient that will favor flow into the duodenum not the leak site; may entail removal of retained stone or internal stenting +/- sphincterotomy

46  Internal stenting is currently the procedure of choice for treating bile duct leaks ( types A & D)  Cessation of bile extravasation in 70-95% of cases w/in 7 days

47 Percutaneous Transhepatic Cholangiography  Another method of non-surgical mgmt of bile leak  Usually reserved for when ERCP unsuccessful; since bile ducts of normal caliber increasing the difficulty of the procedure

48 Plastic surgery meets GI surgery  BOTOX injection to sphincter of Oddi

49 Intraoperative Injury  Strasberg D injury - (partial injury to a major duct) should be repaired at initial operation w/ T- tube drainage  Strasberg E injury - (complete transection of major duct) may be reconstructed at the initial operation w/ a R-Y hepaticojejunostomy.  *** No primary re-anastomosis secondary to ischemic factors***

50 Detection in post-op period  Abx, nutrition support, percutaneous drainage of bile collex (US or CT)  MRCP, PTC or ERCP to delineate location of injury.  Once sepsis and leaks are controlled, then may perform definitive reconstruction w/ R-Y hepaticojejunostomy Kaman et al. Management of Major Bile Duct Injuries following LC. Surg Endosc (2004)18:1196 –1199

51 Gallblader injury  Blunt trauma  Penetrating injury  Investigation  Ultrasound  CT SCAN


53 PANCREATIC INJURIES  Blunt or penetrating injury  Associated with other injuries  Persistent elevation of S. amylase  Laparotomy usually for other injuries  Select the surgical procedure, Debridment Good drainage, Sump drain
