Post intravenous and oral contrast scans have been performed through the abdomen and pelvis.Severe splenic laceration, with no contrast enhancement demonstrated within the posteromedial half of the spleen.
Within the anterolateral splenic fragment, a 1.2 x 0.7 cm hyperdensity is suggestive of a false aneurysm. Associated large amount of free intraperitoneal fluid / hematoma, tracking into the pelvis, paracolic gutters are around the liver.
Delayed phase demonstrates active bleeding into the nonenhancing splenic portion.No further intrabdominal visceral injury.
No fractures identified.
Pseudoaneurysm formation is one of the complications of splenic laceration.
