    This monograph represents an overview of torso trauma. The torso should be viewed as a single unit and injuries may affect the thoracic and abdominal viscera. My approach to the various injuries is pragmatic and usually fairly aggressive. The purpose is to reduce complications and missed injuries and it applies equally well to the surgeon whose practice is extensive or to the surgeon who treats only occasional injuries.
