Gastric trauma Blunt trauma to the stomach is relatively rare, and most commonly involves the fundus. It is usually due to high-velocity impact on a full stomach. As in other parts of the gastrointestinal tract, injuries can be full or partial thickness. 17). Partialthickness injury can be either serosal or mucosal; the latter can cause haematemesis. Luminal air can also dissect into gastric veins causing portal pneumatosis, which may give the misleading impression of bowel wall infarction. The stomach abuts the left hemidiaphragm and thus gastric trauma may be associated with diaphragmatic rupture, which can predispose to intrathoracic gastric migration with possible volvulus and strangulation.
Note similar density of urine in the ureters. 12 CT of a large pelvic haematoma around a fracture of the right ilium. of assessment is important, and retrograde urethrography will aid decision making. While it is possible to by-pass the problem by suprapubic catheterization, this should be regarded as a last resort, as the presence of a suprapubic catheter will severely limit or complicate the surgical approach for anterior pelvic stabilization. Per-urethral catheterization, endoscopically guided if necessary, should be the preferred option.

Displacement of sharp bone fragments across the pelvis is associated with a high incidence of soft tissue damage, particularly to the bladder and urethra. 5 cm, anterior sacroiliac joint disruption External rotation Rotationally unstable, vertically stable AP compression, type III Type II plus posterior sacroiliac joint disruption External rotation Rotationally unstable, vertically unstable Lateral compression, type I Ipsilateral sacral buckle fracture, ipsilateral horizontal pubic rami fractures (or disruption of symphysis with overlapping pubic bones) Internal rotation Stable Lateral compression, type II Type I plus ipsilateral iliac wing fracture or posterior sacroiliac joint disruption Internal rotation Rotationally unstable, vertically stable Lateral Compression type III Force continues across midline to affect the contralateral hemipelvis.
