[Ruptured subcapsular hepatic hematoma associated with HELLP syndrome].Rev Gastroenterol Peru. 2006 Apr-Jun; 26(2):207-10.RG
HELLP syndrome is a rare condition related to pregnancy; however, it can cause complications such as a ruptured subcapsular hepatic hematoma. In most cases, this is managed surgically, but the mortality rate is high, up to 50% of all patients. We present a case with conservative management by percutaneous embolization of the right hepatic artery with a successful outcome and we propose a modern treatment algorithm.
