Abstract

Acute hepatic failure due to ischemic hepatitis is associated with high mortality. The safety of cardiopulmonary bypass in this setting is not fully described. Here we report a case of a 21-year-old female who developed an acute fulminant hepatic failure due to ischemic hepatitis following a cardiogenic shock. She underwent subsequent successful mitral valve replacement under cardiopulmonary bypass, thus providing an evidence of its safety in acute fulminant hepatic failure.
