Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pulmonary laceration has been accepted as a rare event of primary lung injury in blunt chest trauma. Four types of pulmonary laceration have been classified according to computed tomographic (CT) pattern, lung location, and injury mechanism. Type 1 pulmonary laceration represents the most common injury as a result of blunt chest trauma in young patients. I report the role of chest CT scan and conservative management for a young man diagnosed with type 1 pulmonary laceration after a fall from scaffolding.
