Over the last century sporadic reports have described intra-abdominal injury without penetration of the abdominal cavity but the underlying mechanism of energy transfer appears variable. This article reviews the 19 documented cases of this phenomenon and discusses the mechanism of energy transfer in both primary blast injury and ballistic injury that may be responsible.
