Abstract: A rare case of portal hypertension secondary to traumatic hepatic artery portal vein arteriovenous fistula (A-P fistula) due to liver needle biopsy was reported. Successfull resection of the A-P fistula in this patient was made by a limited partial hepatectomy under guidance of intraoperative ultrasonic evaluation of the site of the fistula. In high risk cirrhotic patient, mass resection of the liver parenchyma is usually fatal. Therefore, the reported cases in the literature were treated by conservative such as ligation of the artery, and the result was almost not acceptable. In this report, wee mphasized the usefullness of intraoperative orientation of the A-P fistula by ultrasonic examination which allowed a limited partial hepatectomy for complete removal of the affected area without any postoperative complication.
