When the liver enlargement due to disease, more vulnerable to external forces. Severe hemorrhagic shock often occurs after liver injury, and leakage of bile into the abdominal cavity causes juice peritonitis and secondary infection. So what are the symptoms and treatment of liver rupture? let's figure it out together.

(A) Surgical treatment
Temporarily control bleeding, identify injuries as soon as possible. Once the operation is decided, the abdominal cavity should be rapidly dissected. Efforts to control the bleeding time. Then according to liver injury choose the appropriate surgical approach.
(B) non-surgical treatment
Indications for non-surgical treatment:
1. Conscious patients admitted to the hospital, the correct answer to the doctor's questions and cooperate with the physical examination.
2. Hemodynamically stable, systolic blood pressure above 90mmHg, pulse rate less than 100 beats / min.
3. No signs of peritonitis.
4.B ultrasound or CT examination to determine mild liver injury (Ⅰ ~ Ⅱ degrees).
No other visceral injuries were found. In the conservative treatment process, but also must be clear the following two points:
(1) After transfusion or blood transfusion 300 ~ 500ml, blood pressure and pulse rate returned to normal quickly, and remained stable.
(2) repeated B-ultrasound, liver damage proved stable, intra-abdominal blood volume did not increase or gradually decreased. However, indications for non-surgical treatment is not accurate or grasp is not, we must be used with caution.
