Abstract

Thermal injury on vascular walls can result in delayed rupture of vessels. This can be a cause of life threatening reactionary haemorrhage. Increasing use of energy devices in laparoscopic surgeries can rarely result in such events which may have devastating consequences. Careful usage of these heat generating energy sources can prevent such incidences and prompt resuscitation and haemorrhage control are lifesaving. We present a case report of a severe haemorrhage from blow out of superior mesenteric artery following laparoscopic para-aortic lymph node biopsy.
