Abstract
Traumatic injuries of the inferior vena cava (IVC) are the most challenging lesions in abdominal vascular injuries and are associated with a high mortality rate. Although endovascular treatment has been addressed in the management of vascular trauma, surgery is the mainstay in the treatment for IVC injury as an endovascular technique for the venous system has not been developed. We report a case of successful surgical repair of an extensive IVC laceration following a fall.
Key Words: Inferior vena cava; Blunt trauma; Surgical repair
