Abstract

Coeliac axis dissection as a result of blunt abdominal trauma is rare. This case report describes a 31-year-old male who after losing control of his motorbike sustained a coeliac axis dissection diagnosed on initial trauma pan-CT. This was managed non-operatively. In the context of blunt trauma, coeliac axis dissection is a marker of significant injury and is rarely found in isolation. The diagnosis of these injuries requires a high index of suspicion. Successful management needs to be tailored to each patient individually, though many can be managed non-operatively.
