    Emergency lung resection for chest trauma is a rare event with a reported incidence of 0.08-1.3% but is associated with a high morbidity and mortality especially if a pneumonectomy is required, if due to blunt chest trauma or when concomitant injuries are present. We report three cases of young adult males with penetrating chest injuries that required emergency thoracotomy (ET) and anatomical lung resection to achieve definitive control of life threatening pulmonary haemorrhage. All patients survived to hospital discharge and remained well on follow-up. Indications for an ET and what constitutes the optimal operative management of such patients is discussed.

    Blunt ocular trauma may result in expulsion of the intraocular lens in a patient who has undergone cataract surgery. This case report describes a patient who presented with an extrusion of intraocular lens following blunt ocular trauma post-operatively. The authors emphasise the importance of patient counselling and protection of the operated eye after surgery.

    Multislice computed tomography (MSCT) is the imaging modality of choice in assessing clinically stable patients with blunt abdominal trauma. This study assessed the role of MSCT in the detection of intra abdominal injury caused by blunt trauma in our centre within a two-year-period (2008-2009). A total of 151 patients had MSCT abdomen for blunt abdominal trauma within this study period. Positive scan were seen in 126 patients (83.4%). Out of these positive scans, liver, spleen and renal injuries were seen in 42.1% (n = 53), 34.9% (n = 44) and 30.0% (n = 34) of cases respectively. Laparotomies were performed in 45 patients. Out of these 45 laparotomies, 10 patients had surgically significant injuries that were missed on CT scan findings. The injuries were bowel perforation (n = 4), serosal tear of bowel (n = 1), mesenteric injuries with active haemorrhage (n=3), spleen injury (n = 1) and liver injury (n = 1).

    A young boy presented with history of abdominal trauma. History and initial clinical findings suggested a soft tissue injury. Due to increasing abdominal pain and fever, we proceeded with an exploratory laparotomy with a diagnosis of intra-abdominal injury, at which we found a perforated appendix. Appendicitis following blunt abdominal trauma needs high index of suspicion.

    One hundred and thirteen patients sustaining blunt abdominal trauma over a 24-month period were retrospectively divided into three groups to assess parameters of three diagnostic methods and the time-lapse before implementing surgical treatment. Diagnosis was based in group A patients (n = 20) on physical findings, plain radiology, and blood and urine examinations. Diagnostic methods in group B patients (n = 35) and in group C patients (n = 58) were as in group A but with the addition of diagnostic peritoneal lavage (DPL) in group B or with the addition of diagnostic abdominal ultrasonography (DAU) in group C. Sixty-five patients underwent abdominal exploration. The time-lag from commencement of examination to surgery was 332.33 +/- 48.90 min, 251.82 +/- 29.08 min and 570.89 +/- 133.80 min respectively in groups A, B and C. It was significantly shorter in group B compared with group C (P = 0.03). DPL had a sensitivity of 95%, a specificity of 81% and an accuracy of 89% whilst DAU had a sensitivity of 79%, a specificity of 85% and an accuracy of 83% in detecting significant injury. The conclusion is that DPL in combination with DAU would facilitate early assessment and treatment of intra-abdominal injuries.

    40 cases of major renal trauma over a period of five years in a peripheral hospital in Singapore were reviewed. 90% were due to blunt trauma with motor-cycle accidents forming the majority. There were five cases of superficial cortical injury, three cases of shattered kidneys, six cases of parenchymal injuries, one case of pedicle injury and one case of combined pedicle and parenchymal injury. Nephrectomy rate was 22.5% in this series. This is felt to be unduly high. Half of all the cases operated upon ended up with an immediate total nephrectomy. There was no mortality in this series. We recommend a more conservative policy of watchful waiting to achieve better chances of organ preservation without increasing mortality.

    Tracheobronchial injuries are uncommon and a high level of suspicion is needed for immediate diagnosis and prompt treatment. In this case series, two rare cases of tracheobronchial injuries is described showing variable clinical presentations with different levels of injury. Our first case was seen in a 20 years old male whom had a direct impact on the neck and presented with upper tracheal injury. On arrival, this patient was in respiratory distress and had bilateral pneumothorax. Bilateral chest tube was inserted with subsequent neck exploration. During the neck exploration, anastomosis of the injured trachea was performed. The second case was represented by a 35 years old man with right main bronchial injury. Upon initial presentation, this patient appeared well and was comfortable under room air. However he gradually deteriorated one week after the trauma requiring surgical intervention. Eventually a thoracotomy with primary anastomosis of the bronchial tear was performed. Details of both cases including clinical presentation, imaging and procedures done will be discussed in this article.
