reuiews Blunt Myocardial Injury *

Abstract

a steering wheel followed by sudden deceleration is a common event. One of the most feared complications of chest trauma is myocardial contusion, which implies necrosis with or without hemorrhage into the myocar¬ dium.' Patients who survive the initial trauma can present with life-threatening injuries and hemody¬ namic compromise. However, the extent of the inves¬ tigation and management of the less symptomatic, hemodynamically stable patients remains controver¬ sial.
