Paucis Verbis card: Penetrating abdominal trauma

Posted Jul 09 2010 12:00am
When I did my residency training in Emergency Medicine and in the first few years as an attending, we regularly performed diagnostic peritoneal lavages in patients with stab wounds injuries to the abdomen. Patients also routinely went to the operating room for exploration.

Now with the evolution of CT imaging technology and more clinical studies, there is now a role for a less invasive management approach. These are the Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma (EAST) guidelines.


Feel free to download this card and print on a 4'' x 6'' index card.
