Abstract

Use of a defined massive transfusion (MT) protocol for severe intraoperative bleeding in a pediatric patient has never been described. Herein we present a case whereby use of hemostatic resuscitation delineated in an MT protocol optimally treated hemorrhage resulting from a large tumor during right hepatectomy. The MT protocol principles, benefits, and postoperative course of the patient are described.
