The treatment of choice for significant gallbladder injury is cholecystectomy. Extrahepatic bile duct injury from blunt trauma is rare but may occur at sites of anatomic fixation such as within the pancreatic head. Acute deceleration with compression of the duct against the spine can cause ductal transection, and elevation of the liver in blunt trauma can cause stretching of the duct. As in intrahepatic bile duct injury, biloma may ensue, manifesting as a perihepatic fluid collection on CT. Treatment may be either with open surgical repair or stent placement at ERCP.

Delayed diagnosis may give rise to peritonitis. 20), peripancreatic fluid, hyperenhancing adrenal glands and flattening of the IVC. 21) or signs of mesenteric vascular injury, including abrupt vessel Trauma to the pancreas is rare but can lead to significant complications such as abscess or pseudocyst formation, pancreatitis or pancreatic fistula. The key issue in pancreatic trauma is the integrity of the pancreatic duct. 19 Rectal perforation following a gunshot wound to the pelvis. Axial CT image with intravenous and rectal contrast demonstrates extensive leakage of rectal contrast (arrow).

12 Evolution of a traumatic biloma. The initial CT scan (a) demonstrates a central liver laceration in close proximity to the porta hepatis (arrow). CT one month later (b) demonstrates a low-attenuation fluid collection in the right flank (arrow). A subsequent HIDA scan (c) shows leakage of bile from the biliary tree into the collection (arrow), which was drained percutaneously. 3 American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST) organ injury severity scale grading system for kidney injury Grade 1 Contusion or contained and non-expanding subcapsular haematoma, without parenchymal laceration; haematuria Grade 2 Non-expanding, confined, perirenal haematoma or cortical laceration less than 1 cm deep; no urinary extravasation Grade 3 Parenchymal laceration extending more than 1 cm into cortex; no collecting system rupture or urinary extravasation Grade 4 Parenchymal laceration extending through the renal cortex, medulla and collecting system Grade 5 Pedicle injury or avulsion of renal hilum that devascularizes the kidney; completely shattered kidney; thrombosis of the main renal artery Ureteric injury is rare and typically occurs at the PUJ.
