Abstract

ABSTRACT

During  January  1992  through  November  1995, 45 patients  who  sustained  colonic  injuries  were  retrospectively  analyzed.  Thirty-eight  were men  and  7  were  women, their  mean  age  was  29  years.  Blunt  abdominal  injury  from  traffic  accident  was  the most  common  cause. The indication  to  perform  laparotomy  was  based  on  physical  findings  more  than  diagnostic  peritoneal  lavage  or  other  investigation.  Right  side  colon  was  the  most  common  location  of  injury  and  multiple  colonic  injuries  was  found  in  One –third  of  cases.  Ninty-one percent  of  patients  had  associated  intra  or  extra – abdominal  injuries.  Primary  repair,  include  simple  repair  and  resection  with  primary  anastomosis,  was  carried  out  in  most  cases.  Colostomy  was  performed  in  5  cases.  Pneumonia  and  wound  infection  were  common  complications.
