BACKGROUND: The management of hepatic trauma has a historical progress from mandatory operation with selective non-operative treatment, to non-operative treatment with selective operation. Liver resection (LR) seems to have a minimal role in the management of liver injury. However, surgical treatment becomes the only life-saving treatment in cases with severe liver trauma.
