Conservative treatment of gastric perforation after microwave ablation of a hepatocellular carcinoma: Case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2022 Jun 3;101(22):e29195. Epub 2022 Jun 3.

Surgical Center Oranienburg, Oranienburg, Germany.

Rationale: Microwave ablation (MWA) has been proven to be an efficient and safe method for local tumor control of liver tumors. Reported complications are rare, but include liver abscess, hematoma, pleural effusion, and occasional thermal injury of the adjacent colon. Intestinal perforation usually requires immediate surgical treatment to prevent generalized peritonitis and sepsis.

Patient Concerns And Diagnosis: Herein, we describe a case of gastric perforation following percutaneous MWA for hepatocellular carcinoma as a bridging therapy prior to liver transplantation.

Interventions: Due to the clinical condition of the patient, conservative treatment was considered sufficient. Nine months after MWA, successful liver transplantation followed. Intraoperative findings revealed a scar in the gastric wall with tight adhesions to the liver, requiring adhesiolysis and subsequent suturing. Postoperative recovery was uneventful.

Outcome: At present, the patient is doing well. No further gastrointestinal events occurred.

Lesson: To our knowledge, this is the first report of such a complication occurring after MWA. Moreover, in this case, the gastric perforation could be treated conservatively.

Biliary pneumatosis has recently been reported in intrahepatic amd extrahepatic bile ducts complicating bacterial cholangitis, as characterized by cholangioscopy. This clinical report adds another case of small-scale pneumatosis cysts in the common bile duct to the literature. Similary to previously reported cases, the recent patient likewise had a history of acute cholangitis. It might be tempting to speculate that this finding might prove more common than expected in the dawning era of routine use of cholangioscopic characterization of biliary tract diseases.
