Darbari Anshuman, Kumar Ambrish, Tandon Shekhar, Kumar Shailendra
Inferior vena caval injuries remain a challenge for the skill, experience and diligence of a surgeon. Not only vascular surgeons, but all surgeons should be familiar with the principles of their treatment. We are reporting a patient of retrohepatic inferior vena caval injury due to blunt trauma. Initial packing and later planned re-exploration saved the life of the patient. After taking proximal and distal control and proper mobilization, direct repair of rent was done and patient recovered well without any residual complication.
