[Gallbladder injury in abdominal trauma: analysis of 32 cases].


Gallbladder lesion is infrequent, occurring in approximately 0.5 to 8.5% of all patients with blunt and penetrating abdominal trauma. The incidence of gallbladder injury in such cases is low. This study reviewed 32 patients with gallbladder injury due to abdominal trauma over a 6-year period to determine the complications, associated injuries, and mortality rate.
