Traumatiske pancreaslæsioner

Amalie Felicia Schmiegelow, Jan Henrik Storkholm, Stefan Kobbelgaard Burgdorf


    In this review, the recommendations for treating pancreatic traumas are summarised. A pancreatic trauma is rare but serious. Initially, the symptoms can be subtle and may easily be overlooked by concurrent injuries such as internal bleeding. Delayed detection of pancreatic lesions is associated with increased mortality and morbidity. There is a tendency towards a more conservative approach in the treatment of pancreatic lesions, including injuries involving the pancreatic duct. In the haemodynamically instable patient damage control surgery is preferred, with closed suction drainage of the pancreas and later definitive surgery. We propose contact to a hepato-pancreato-biliary facility in case of any suspicion of a pancreatic injury.
