Description: Background: Blunt hepatic trauma is common in abdominal injuries. This study was conducted in those patients of blunt liver trauma to assess the effectiveness of conservative treatment. Methods: fifty patients with blunt hepatic trauma were included in this study. Clinical assessment was done in all the patients. FAST and CT scan were also done. Patients with unstable hemodynamics who responded to fluid challenge and with stable hemodynamics were included in conservative management of liver trauma. Results: In this study 50 patients were analyzed, 5 patients were operated due to unstable hemodynamics while 45 patients treated conservatively. Average numbers of blood units transfused were 2-3 units and average hospital stay was 3-6 days. Conclusions: The conservative treatment is safe option for blunt hepatic trauma patients in patients with stable hemodynamics. Intensive monitoring is essential as there may be failure in a few patients. The complication rate was minimum and no mortality.
