|Frequency and spectrum of interventional procedures in acute trauma patients after multidetector-row computed tomography (MDCT) of the chest and/or abdomen|
In up to 4.8% of acute trauma patients, emergency interventional radiological procedures were performed in our department with the majority being stentgrafts of the thoracic aorta. The second most common endovascular procedure was embolization of the internal iliacal artery for pelvic haemorrhage (6,7) followed by embolization of branches of the renal artery (8). Interventional procedures are an important tool in the management of the actively bleeding trauma patient and in selected cases can obviate the need for emergent major surgical procedures.
