Abstract : <p>Abdominal trauma usually occurs following motor vehicle accidents, fall or assault. The management of patients following trauma is an ongoing challenge to the trauma surgeons. Treatment of abdominal trauma requires an accurate assessment of the presence, nature and extent of injury. Therefore diagnosis usually requires application of imaging tools.<br /> Blunt abdominal trauma (B.A.T) is particularly misleading since clinical signs might take hours or even days to appear, despite the fact that internal organ damage can be significant and fatal. The most common mode of injury that results in B.A.T is a road traffic accident (R.T.A). Diagnostic techniques such as F.A.S.T and C.T scans have shifted management patterns away from surgery and toward a more conservative approach. The goal of this study was to look into the management and outcome of blunt trauma to the abdomen in a tertiary care hospital.<br />  </p>
