This study aims to evaluate the usefulness of hemostasis using radiofrequency ablation for track bleeding that has occurred after percutaneous biopsy of the liver.


Purpose: To evaluate the usefulness of hemostasis using radiofrequency ablation for track bleeding after percutaneous liver biopsy.

  • Enroll patients who continue to bleed despite conservative treatment for track bleeding that has occurred after liver biopsy.
  • Radiofreqeuncy ablation: Under monitoring vital signs and controlling pain with intravenous agents, the electrode is inserted into the bleeding focus. The bleeding focus is ablated.
  • Hemostasis is evaluated by ultrasound (right after radiofrequency ablation), CT scan (after the radiofrequency ablation), and ultrasound (the day after radiofrequency ablation)
  • If hemostasis fails using radiofrequency ablation, transarterial hepatic embolization is performed immediately.
