Reviews Abdominal injuries and sport JohnMRyan Introduction Serious abdominal trauma as a result of sport-ing activities is an uncommon problem. However, because of its relative infrequency, injuries may sometimes go undiagnosed. Sig-niﬁcant blunt abdominal injuries do not present in the same way as major orthopaedicCited by: Introduction. Abdominal injuries are common in patients who sustain major trauma: approximately one-fifth of all trauma patients requiring operative intervention have sustained an injury to the abdomen (Feliciano et al. , Jansen et al. ).Unrecognized abdominal injury continues to be the biggest cause of preventable death after truncal trauma (American .

Abdominal injuries in the athlete are among the most potentially dangerous, and the importance of understanding these injuries cannot be understated.
BACKGROUND AND ANATOMY The abdomen is a relatively unprotected area; susceptible to trauma such as contusions, lacerations, puncture wounds, and by: 1. The abdominal wall as a source of pain has received little attention, and only a few reviews on the topic have been published in the past decade.1, 2 However, physicians who consider abdominal Cited by: In an international, multi-center trial, adult trauma patients with evidence of severe injury were randomly assigned to either whole body CT (n = ) or selective CT imaging (n = ).
In-hospital mortality did not differ between groups (whole body CT 86 [16 percent] versus selective CT 85 [16 percent]), nor did it differ significantly among.
rule consisted of (in descending order of importance) no evidence of abdominal wall trauma or seat belt sign, Glasgow Coma Scale score greater t no abdominal tenderness, no evidence of thoracic wall trauma, no complaints of abdominal pain, no decreased breath sounds, and no vomiting.
The rule had a negative predictive. Abdominal trauma is responsible for about 10% of all deaths related to trama. Abdominal trauma may involve penetrating or blunt injuries. Penetrating injuries include gunshot and shrapnel injuries, impalements, and knifings. • Penetrating injuries often result in injury to hollow organs, such as the Size: KB.
The ACR Appropriateness Criteria ® (AC) are evidence-based guidelines to assist referring physicians and other providers in making the most appropriate imaging or treatment decision for a specific clinical condition. Employing these guidelines helps providers enhance quality of care and contribute to the most efficacious use of radiology.

Deep underlying damage may occur with an abdominal injury, with only little external hemorrhage. True. Two of the most important signs of a chest injury are obvious trauma and decrease in the respiratory rate.
Bleeding from abdominal injury is mostly internal (within the abdominal cavity). When there is a penetrating injury, a small amount of external bleeding may occur through the wound. When a hollow organ is injured, the contents of the organ (for example, stomach acid, stool, or urine) may enter the abdominal cavity and cause irritation and.
The initial management of blunt abdominal trauma follows the principles of Advanced Trauma Life Support, including adherence to the ABCs of trauma and balanced resuscitation. A hemodynamically unstable patient with a solid organ injury and intra-abdominal hemorrhage or peritonitis is managed with emergent surgical exploration.
A blunt abdominal injury is treated depending on how severe your child's injury is. Mild injuries, such as bruising and soreness, will be monitored for a short time. Your child may be given medicine to decrease pain. Severe injuries, such as damage to organs, blood vessels, and bones, may need surgery.
Your child will need to rest to decrease. The abdomen can be injured in many types of trauma; injury may be confined to the abdomen or be accompanied by severe, multisystem trauma. The nature and severity of abdominal injuries vary widely depending on the mechanism and forces involved, thus generalizations about mortality and need for operative repair tend to be misleading.
Biliary leaks occur in children with laceration of the liver after blunt abdominal trauma and also after cholecystectomy or other biliary surgery. ERCP can be safely performed to confirm the source and to treat the leak by transpapillary stent placement with or without sphincterotomy (Figure A,B).

A blunt abdominal injury is a direct blow to the abdomen without an open wound. These injuries are caused by car accidents, sports injuries, or a fall. Organs such as your pancreas, liver, spleen, or bladder may be injured. Your intestines may also be injured.
These injuries may cause internal bleeding. What are the signs and symptoms of a.

The abdominal cavity lies below the ribcage and above the pelvic cavity.
Unlike the chest and pelvic cavities, there are no bones to protect the abdomen and any injury may cause serious damage to some of the abdominal organs, including the liver, spleen or stomach. In some cases, the injury may involve both the abdominal and pelvic contents.
Penetrating abdominal trauma (PAT) has the potential to be a devastating injury and ranks in the top 15 causes of death for all ages. This article will define the problem of PAT and review the initial management, including the ability to identify, resuscitate, and initiate treatment in patients with unstable PAT prior to their transfer to the operating room (OR).
• Abdominal bruising (e.g. Cullen’s sign, Grey Turner sign) and distension can be a late sign and difficult to determine. • Shoulder tip pain (Kehr’s sign) • Significant abdominal injuries may present with little external evidence of trauma or a trivial pattern of injury and or Size: 1MB.
The investigation of blunt abdominal trauma is a challenging and contentious subject with a limited evidence base. The algorithm proposed here is widely accepted and should help doctors in emergency departments decide on the most appropriate form of investigation pending the arrival of a by: Evidence-based information on abdominal trauma from hundreds of trustworthy sources for health and social care.
Abdominal Blunt Trauma. Source: Injury to the abdomen is medically known as abdominal trauma. Severe blood loss and infection are associated risks of serious abdominal trauma.
External hemorrhage rarely is associated with blunt abdominal trauma. If external bleeding is present, control it with direct pressure. Note any signs of inadequate systemic perfusion. Consider intraperitoneal hemorrhage whenever evidence of hemorrhagic shock is found in the absence of external hemorrhage.
