Abstract

Blunt and penetrating trauma to the abdominal aorta continue to be highly lethal injuries despite increasing reports of successful treatment of such injuries. Retrospective analysis of acute abdominal aortic injuries treated at San Francisco General Hospital Trauma Center from 1974 through 1980 was undertaken to determine if significant changes in patterns of injury, resuscitative measures, techniques of surgical repair and mortality have occurred in comparison with previous years. Comparison of the current series with a similar retrospective review of abdominal aortic injuries treated at San Francisco General Hospital Trauma Center from 1969 through 1973 demonstrated an overall mortality of 53% for the combined series. There were no significant differences between the two series in mechanisms of injury, age distribution, or number of patients arriving in profound shock.
