AAST-OIS grade V complex hepatic injuries are often fatal as a result of exsanguination. We report a patient presenting in extremis with a penetrating injury to the right kidney, liver, middle hepatic vein, diaphragm, and lung. A combination of intrahepatic balloon tamponade and hepatic venous stenting was used to control exsanguinating haemorrhage, the first time this combination has been reported. Rapid assessment and treatment and a team approach, together with the innovative application of haemostatic techniques, allowed a multidisciplinary team to salvage this patient.
