Hepatic hemangiomas (HH) are benign tumors of the liver with an incidence of 0.4%–20%. Most of the HH are asymptomatic with incidental discovery and shows female preponderance. They range from small hemangiomas to large cavernous hemangiomas involving the entire liver. Large hemangiomas will develop symptoms and complications that require prompt surgical intervention or other treatment modalities. Most large liver hemangiomas require hepatic resection which is a complex procedure involving vascular structures and physiological derangements. Hepatic resection requires meticulous anesthetic and surgical management with proper blood replacement therapy. Coagulopathy, hepatic and renal failure and bile leak are some of the important complications of hepatic resection. We present successful management of a case of hepatic hemangioma who underwent right hepatectomy.
