Diagnosis

Pancreatic Transection

Findings

CT – Complete fracturing of the pancreas at the neck with peripancreatic and retroperitoneal fluid.

Discussion

Abdominal compression (often motor vehicle accidents – steering wheel and/or seatbelt, bicycle handlebar, fights, sports injury, or falls) of the pancreas against the vertebral column can result in varying degrees of pancreatic injury. Pancreatic injury is more common in children and young adults, probably related to small size and lack of protective intraperitoneal fat, and often associated with duodenal and/or hepatic injuries.
