Abstract

Pediatric vascular injuries are rare but can be difficult to diagnose and challenging to manage. We present our experience with computed tomographic angiography in 3 pediatric patients with vascular injuries secondary to blunt trauma. Computed tomographic angiography is noninvasive, fast, rapidly available in most centers, and can evaluate for other injuries. We present a review of the literature and recommend computed tomographic angiography as the diagnostic tool of choice in the evaluation of pediatric blunt vascular trauma.
