Abstract

Injuries occupy third place among the causes of death in the total human population, just after cardiovascular system diseases and cancer. They constitute the most common cause of death in the group of people aged up to 40.
A case of post-traumatic duodenum rupture is presented, which was properly diagnosed and surgically treated only during a repeated laparotomy performed three days after the initial laparotomy. After 33 days of hospital stay the patient was released home in a good overall condition, with a recommendation for further care in surgical outpatient’s clinic.
The aetiology, diagnostics and methods of surgical treatment of post-traumatic duodenum injuries are discussed.
A thesis was formulated that one of the key prognostic elements in multiple body injuries is, besides the proper diagnosis and treatment, the time passed between the injury and the final treatment of the injured organs.
