Liver rupture is a rare, yet life-threatening complication of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. It occurs as a complication in 0.6-3% cases of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Its early diagnostics and urgent surgical treatment is thus very important in order to prevent an undesired outcome for the patient. This paper presents diagnostics and treatment of liver rupture resulting as a complication of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) due to cardiac arrest in the early postoperative period after vaginal hysterectomy performed for uterine myomatosis in a 50-year-old patient.
