Resumen

BENAVIDES, CARLOS et al. Hepatic hemangiomas. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2006, vol.58, n.3, pp. 194-198. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262006000300006.

We report five women and two men, aged between 43 and 70 years with hepatic hemangiomas. Three consulted for pain, one had a coagulation deficit with low platelet count (Kasabach Merrit syndrome) two were found during ultrasound examination and one was found during a cholecystectomy. The diagnosis was based in the concordance between computed tomography and ultrasound findings. Five subjects had a single lesion, one had a double lesion and one a triple lesion. The most common location was the left lobe and the diameter of lesions varied between 6 and 25 cm. Four patients were operated. The hemangioma was excised with selective vascular control according to the Takasaki technique. Three asymptomatic patients have been followed for 3 to 6 years, without complications or growth of the lesion. In the four operated patients, the lesions were cavernous hemangiomas, without evidence of malignant transformation
