A new surgical technique for the management of shunting liver hemangiomas that otherwise would rapidly lead to intractable cardiac failure is presented. Rapid, significant reduction of shunt volume was achieved surgically by transhepatic compression sutures using PTFE pledgets and selective ligation of a large feeding vessel from the right hepatic artery.
