Everyone with severe abdominal trauma heads in to the operating room for an emergency laparotomy right?  This article proves that’s definitely not the case revealing some astounding figures on the treatment of severe abdominal injuries with selective non-operative management.  Although the recommendations’ for such a protocol are for experienced trauma centres only, who knows what the future could bring for us in the field with the introduction of blood products, tranexamic acid and less invasive procedures’, trauma centres may take on a role of continuation of field initiated treatment.

A very thorough article that looks at the signs and symptoms of abdominal trauma as well as some standard in hospital forms of management.  It covers the basics which translates well to treatment in the prehospital environment, inspection, auscultation, palpation, percussion and continual reassessment if there’s a high index of suspicion.  In addition to the basic cares it looks at CT, FAST and more invasive interventions such as Diagnostic peritoneal lavage and Video-assisted diagnostic laparoscopy.

Due to high rate of operative mortality and morbidity non-operative management of blunt liver and spleen trauma was widely accepted in stable pediatric patients, but the general surgeons were skeptical to adopt it for adults. The current study is analysis of so far largest sample (1071) of hemodynamically stable blunt liver, spleen, kidney and pancreatic trauma patients managed non operatively irrespective of severity of a single /multiple solid organ injury or other associated injuries with high rate of success.

An extensive article reviewing the types of abdominal trauma, the associated Pathophysiology and the treatments available., including CT, FAST, laparotomy and angiographic embolisation.  It gives some great evidence of the use of FAST as well as the safety benefits over CT.  The use of angiographic embolisation prehospital for the treatment of abdominal trauma would be an amazing thing.
