6 Jahre später – Langzeitnachuntersuchung nach seltener Verletzung im Kindesalter


Jensen, Kai Oliver; Alkadhi, Hatem; Siewert, Carsten; Simmen, Hans Peter (2017). 6 Jahre später – Langzeitnachuntersuchung nach seltener Verletzung im Kindesalter. Der Unfallchirurg, 120(7):616-618.

Abstract

The present case shows the long-term follow-up of a rare injury due to blunt abdominal trauma in childhood. The patient suffered from a traumatic transsection to the A. iliaca communis, which was restored by the combination of a direct suture with a venous autologous patch. A six-year follow-up when the boy was mature with a height of180 cm showed an unremarkable MRI angiography without any sign of stenosis. Due to the limited number of experiences with this rare injury reported in the literature, there is a lack of consensus on the suture technique and use of patches or grafts. The demonstrated technique supplies a possible treatment for this rare injury to infantine arteries.
