The article reports on the clinical study which presented a nine-year old girl with cerebral palsy with painful flank and gross hematuria following a fall against a chest of drawers. A computed tomography (CT) scan indicated a deep parenchemal fracture extending to the left kidney and pelvis. It notes that the case supports the management of a renal blunt injury in children.

This study examined whether TCT provides additional information to routine CXR findings, whether the additional information results in a management change, and...

    Blunt trauma to the pancreas is an uncommon injury, which can be difficult to diagnose. Most studies are multi-institutional, include both helical and axial CT, and report sensitivities of 40 to 67 per cent. We evaluated the efficacy of spiral CT for the diagnosis of blunt pancreatic injury in a...

    We report traumatic disruption of a ringed polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE) axillofemoral bypass (AFB) graft due to a fall. We also review the literature of previously reported blunt traumatic PTFE graft disruptions. A 75-year-old man with previous bilateral AFB grafting presented with a painful...

    Background: Most traumatic tracheobronchial injuries are fatal and result in death. Some milder cases are not life threatening and are often missed at the initial presentation. Tracheobronchial rupture is difficult to diagnose in the evaluation of severe multiple trauma patients. We reviewed the...
