Gastric perforation due to blunt abdominal trauma
Keywords:Blunt trauma, abdomen , Gastric perforation.
Gastric perforations following blunt abdominal trauma are rare, accounting for <2% of all blunt abdominal injuries. This is usually associated with other solid visceral injuries. Isolated blunt gastric ruptures are very rare. Severity of injury, timing of presentation and presentation following last meal as well as concomitant injuries are important prognostic factors. We present a patient with gastric perforation following road traffic accident.
