Abstract

LEARNING OBJECTIVES: 1. To explore clinically relevant anatomy involved in thoracic and abdominopelvic vascular injuries in trauma 2. To recognize the importance of imaging protocol parameters in detection of vascular injuries 3. To identify the typical radiologic manifestations and classification of thoracic and abdominopelvic vascular injuries in trauma 4. To discuss various management options, namely surgical versus interventional radiologic approaches BACKGROUND: Thoracic and abdominopelvic vascular injuries can be life-threatening and are commonly a result of high impact trauma, most often seen in motor vehicle accidents. CT imaging, considering its availability, rapidity of acquisition and precision has allowed accurate non-invasive diagnosis these injuries. Due to the associated morbidity and mortality of these injuries, optimization of CT imaging protocols and knowledge of relevant vascular anatomy and broad spectrum of imaging presentations are critical in order to diagnose these injuries. Identification and classification of these injuries play a key role in guiding proper patient management; including both surgical or interventional procedures. CONCLUSION: The ability to recognize and classify thoracic and abdominopelvic vascular injuries in the setting of trauma is crucial for the practicing radiologist, as radiologic findings routinely guide patient management and outcome.
