Liver Injury

0

A liver injury is any form of trauma sustained to the liver. This might be caused by a blunt force such as a car accident, fall or sports injury, or a penetrating object such as a knife or gunshot wound. The liver is the largest abdominal organ and the most prominent, making it particularly susceptible to these sorts of injuries. In fact, liver injuries constitute 5% of all traumas, making it the most common abdominal injury.

The liver can commonly suffer bruising as a result of an accident or attack and can heal relatively easily. In more severe cases, such as ruptures, surgery may be required to repair the liver and control internal bleeding.

How do I recognise the symptoms of liver injury?

Some of the symptoms which may indicate a liver injury are:

  • right / upper abdominal pain
  • abdominal swelling
  • abdominal tenderness
  • breathing difficulty
  • nausea
  • blood in stools
  • blood in urine
  • vomiting
  • brown urine
  • jaundice
  • rapid pulse
  • faintness and fainting

Liver damage can be fatal if not diagnosed and treated quickly, so it’s important to tell your doctor straight away if you have sustained an abdominal injury and you start experiencing any of the above symptoms, or a worsening of existing symptoms.
