Objective: objectives: Penetrating abdominal trauma secondary to bamboo stick injury is a rare entity in the developed world. Most of such kind of trans abdominal penetrating bamboo stick injury is associated with multiple solid and hollow viscus injuries. In developing countries like India, where nearly 70% of the population reside in rural areas, it is not that uncommon. Aim of this report is to recognition of risk factors and explain optimum surgical management in trans-abdominal bamboo stick injury.
Case Presentation: Here we describe a case of penetrating trans abdominal bamboo stick injury resulting due to fall
over a branch of bamboo stick with multiorgan damage, which was successfully managed
by early surgical exploration in our institute.
Conclusion: There are many factors
which can prognosticate the penetrating trauma cases. The most important factors include
a long interval between injury and surgical exploration, presence or absence of shock, and
other associated organ injuries at the time of admission. Early recognition of the severity of
injury with surgical management is utmost necessary. These patients have high morbidity
and mortality rates due to multiorgan damage and post-operative infection
