Hemorrhagic cardiac tamponade after percutaneous laser ablation of a liver metastasis in segment II


Despite percutaneous laser thermal ablation (LTA) of liver tumors being regarded as a safe technique, major complications can occur. We report the first case of hemorrhagic cardiac tamponade after LTA of a colorectal metastasis in segment II of the liver. Unpredictable heat diffusion causing indirect thermal injury to the pericardium with resultant… (More)
