Injuries to the juxtahepatic veins represent a small proportion of all liver injuries but constitute the most challenging and deadly form of hepatic trauma. Recombinant activated factor VII, established as a crucial therapy for enhancing hemostasis in hemophiliacs with inhibitors, has also been used to correct coagulopathy after traumatic injury. We report two children with hepatic venous injury requiring perihepatic packing and recombinant activated factor VII to successfully control hemorrhage.
