Most common organ injured in
penetrating injury of the abdomen:
a) Liver
b) Spleen
c) Small bowel
d) none of these
Correct Answer - C
Ans- C- Small Bowel
The most common cause is a stab or gunshot.
The most common organs injured are the small bowel (50%), large
bowel (40%), liver (30%), and intra-abdominal vascular (25%).
When the injury is close range, there is more kinetic energy than
those injuries sustained from a distance. Even though most gunshot
wounds typically have a linear projection, the high-energy wounds
are associated with unpredictable injuries.
There may also be secondary missile injuries from bone or bullet
fragments. Stab wounds that penetrate the abdominal wall
are difficult to assess.
