Recombinant factor VIIa for intraoperative bleeding in a child with hepatoblastoma and review of recombinant activated factor VIIa use in children undergoing surgery.
Journal - Journal of pediatric surgery (United States )
We report a case of a child with a large liver mass who underwent an open liver biopsy and had massive bleeding intraoperatively. Recombinant activated factor VII (rFVIIa) given intraoperatively was successful in stopping the bleeding. We also reviewed the literature on the use of rFVIIa in pediatric surgery.
