Lesión esplénica

Pediatric EM Mosels - By Sean Fox - January 9, 2015

"Splenic Injury – Basics:
  • The spleen is the most commonly injured abdominal organ.
    • Up to 45% of patients with blunt abdominal trauma will have splenic injury. (Costa, 2010)
  • More commonly injured in school-aged children and adolescents (when dangerous activities really start).
  • MVC is the most common cause of spleen injury.
    • Highest mortality seen when associated with MVC and concurrent head injury.
    • Mortality is as high as 12% when multi-trauma."
