Abstract

The authors propose modifying Moore's classification of hepatic trauma in an attempt to classify and emphasise iatrogenic hepatic lesions. Although fortunately rare, iatrogenic hepatic trauma are particularly severe since they occur in patients with liver pathologies or precarious general conditions and are therefore characterised by a high mortality rate: 29% in a series of 17 cases.
