Malignant Fibrous Histiocytoma: A Method to Control Intraoperative Hemorrhage by Clamping the Feeding Arteries
Malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH), also referred to in the past as malignant fibrous xanthoma and fibroxanthosarcoma, is a tumor of mesenchymal tissue origin. A case of retroperitoneal MFH was reported. In this paper, we describe a method of hemostasis and intraoperative control of hemorrhage during resection of retroperitoneal MFH by snaring the feeding arteries. The patient was successfully operated on using this technique.
