Tracheobronchial injury occurs in less than 1% of major trauma. 5 cm of the trachea and the proximal bronchi with a right-sided preponderance.

The lung may appear detached from the mediastinum – the “fallen lung” sign. Additional signs may include ectopic positioning of an endotracheal tube or hyperexpansion of the endotracheal tube cuff. Distal bronchial injury can also occur and may present late with persistant atelectasis.

Wherry Published 2010 by Blackwell Publishing 24 trauma (FAST) scanning can be performed rapidly and concurrently with other procedures in the resuscitation room to look for free intraperitoneal or intrathoracic ﬂuid, and can triage a haemodynamically unstable patient to surgery. However, it is insufﬁciently sensitive to exclude solid organ, mesenteric or retroperitoneal injury. The mainstay of imaging following abdominal trauma is multidetector computed tomography (MDCT). All haemodynamically stable patients with evidence of abdominal trauma (including a positive FAST scan), and all adult polytrauma patients in whom the abdomen cannot be satisfactorily cleared clinically, should have CT.
The stomach abuts the left hemidiaphragm and thus gastric trauma may be associated with diaphragmatic rupture, which can predispose to intrathoracic gastric migration with possible volvulus and strangulation. Bowel injury The small bowel is most commonly injured, particularly where it is relatively ﬁxed at the ligament of Treitz and distal ileum, resulting in a wall contusion, serosal tear or full-thickness tear. Wall contusion or serosal tear may manifest as a focal area of bowel wall thickening, which may be eccentric or concentric.
