[Penetrating wound of the right ventricle associated with hemoperitoneum of hepatic origin].

Abstract

The authors discuss, in connection with a penetrating wound of the right ventricle induced with a knife, associated to hemoperitoneum (1 400 ml) following transfixiant hepatic wound on the importance of a complete diagnosis in complex trauma. In such type of trauma, the approach of thoracic lesions must be independent of the treatment of abdominal ones, in view of the prevention of contamination of the thoracic cavity. For the time being digital obstruction of penetrating heart wounds is the least traumatic and the most efficient modality to stop hemorrhage, facilitating at the same time, the performance of cardiography.
