Abstract

A report of 10 cases of perforations of the ilieum and jejunum from blunt abdominal trauma is presented. The perforation was the only injury in eight patients, while in two there were other visceral injuries. The perforations were single in seven patients and double in three. Simple closure was used in seven cases and resection in three. Of the three patients who were operated upon late, one died.
