Abstract

Trauma affects all sociodemographic profiles and is a major cause of morbidity and mortality particularly in patients less than forty years of age. A variety of endoscopic tools and techniques initially used for iatrogenic etiologies (post-operative bile or pancreatic duct leaks, intra-procedural perforation) have been adopted for use in the gastrointestinal trauma victim. The purpose of this review is to highlight a variety of gastrointestinal traumatic complications where endoscopy can serve a complement and/or definitive management strategy.
