Abstract

Abdominal wall defect with large duodenal disruption after penetrating abdominal injury is a rare emergency situation that can result in life-threatening compli cations. We report on a 64-year-old man who had abdominal wall defect with large duodenal disruption after penetrating abdomina l injury. The patient presented with intra-abdominal exsanguinating bleeding, duodenal disruption, and multiple small bowel perforation. The rarity of this complex injury and its initial presentation as a posttraumatic large duodenal disruption with abdominal wall defect warrant its description. The present case indicates that combining a free tissue flap with a covered expa ndable met a llic stent can effectively a nd successfully repair an abdominal wall defect that is associated with a large duodenal disruption.
