4 Background: Epidemiology of Traumatic Diaphragmatic Rupture Trauma is the 4th most common cause of death in the USA and the leading cause of fatalities in those younger than 45 years-old Traumatic diaphragmatic rupture (TDR) injuries occur in 0.8 to 8% of patients who sustain blunt (MVC and fall from height) and penetrating trauma Mortality from TDR is 14-50%. This increases to 77% when associated with shock and head injury Sangster G, Ventura V, Carbo A, et. al
5 Background: Complications and common associations of TDR Diagnosis of TDR missed in up to 48% of blunt trauma patients on routine chest films and 30% of body CT scans. Failure to identify the abnormality may cause acute or delayed severe complications Cardiovascular-respiratory respiratory insufficiency Bowel strangulation and ischemia Left hemidiaphragm injured 4 times more commonly than the right. Bilateral cases are rare (5-8%) Most commonly herniated organs: stomach > small and large bowel > spleen > liver Associated intra-abdominal abdominal injuries common (75% of TDR patients have associated intra- abdominal injury) Eren S, Kantarci M, Okur A.
6 Background: Clinical symptoms as poor indicators of detecting TDR Most commonly experienced clinical symptoms of TDR include dyspnea,, chest pain, abdominal pain, vomiting The clinical diagnosis of TDR is difficult and missed in up to 65% of patients Therefore, imaging is essential Sangster G, Ventura V, Carbo A, et. al

9 Menu of Tests: Plain Chest Film Plain film chest radiography 1 st test of choice to evaluate suspected TDR Sensitivity of the chest plain film for the detection of the DR range from 27 to 60% for left-sided hernias and 17 to 33% for the right The most specific radiographic findings of DR include intrathoracic herniation of hollow viscera (small bowel, stomach, or colon) and identification of the nasogastric tube above the level of the left hemidiaphragm Gelman R, Mirvis SE, Gens D.
10 Menu of Tests: Plain Chest Film, differential diagnosis for NG tube seen in left thorax Differential diagnosis for NG tube tip overlying the chest on plain film: 1) Tip is still inside the stomach diaphragmatic rupture 2) Tip is outside of the GI tract in a bronchus or the pleural space 3) Tube is outside the patient Supine AP Portable Plain Chest Film with NG tube tip in left thorax
11 Menu of Tests: Plain Chest Film, Limitations Failure to diagnose TDR on plain films range from 12 to 66% Concurrent pulmonary abnormalities such as pleural effusion, pulmonary contusion and atelectasis can mimic or mask TDR on plain chest films A herniation at the costo-phrenic angle may be misdiagnosed as a pleural effusion or hemothorax on the initial chest radiograph, and a thoracic drainage tube could accidentally be placed into the herniated organs Shapiro MJ, Heidberg E, Durham RM, et. al.
12 Menu of Tests: CT Multidetector CT (MDCT) has TDR detection rates of 73 92% = Gold standard for diagnosis Because TDR is rarely isolated, CT is advantageous in the evaluation of other associated injuries Nchimi A, Szapiro D, Ghaye B, et. al.
13 Menu of Tests: CT Findings for TDR Diaphragm discontinuity and Dangling diaphragm sign 73% sensitivity, 90% specificity Intrathoracic herniation of abdominal contents 55% sensitivity, 100% specificity Collar sign: Constriction of the herniated abdominal viscera 67% sensitivity, 100% specificity Dependent viscera sign: Visualization of the herniated viscera against the posterior chest wall 100% sensitivity, 90% specificity Desser TS. Edwards B, Hunt S, et. al.
14 Companion Patient 1: The Collar and Dangling Diaphragm Signs on CT Axial contrast CT through the abdomen. Arrowhead shows construction of the stomach as it passes through the diaphragmatic defect, this is the Collar sign. The relatively newly discovered dangling diaphragm sign is seen with the arrow, representing the torn free edge of the left hemidiaphragm Axial C+ CT through abdomen Desser TS. Edwards B, Hunt S, et. al.
15 Companion Patient 2: The Dependent Viscera Sign on CT Axial contrast CT through the thorax, showing the Dependent viscera sign. The stomach is lying adjacent to the posterior ribs instead of within the expected confines of the dome of the diaphragm Axial C+ CT through thorax Desser TS. Edwards B, Hunt S, et. al; Bergin D, Ennis R, Keogh C, et. al.
16 Menu of Tests: Lesser Used Studies to evaluate TDR A barium study can be performed as a complement to diagnosis if the patient can tolerate the study. If intestinal passage is normal, barium filling intestinal loops are detected within the thorax MRI also used, but not a practical imaging technique in acute emergency setting for multi- trauma patients, as it is a slower modality than CT Surgical laparotomy may detect any unseen, subtle tears in the diaphragm. Preferred over thoracotomy Sangster G, Ventura V, Carbo A, et. al.

46 Conclusions TDR is an uncommon injury (0.8 8% of traumas), but with a high mortality (14-50%) TDR is difficult to diagnose clinically, and frequently missed on supine plain films CT is the gold standard noninvasive diagnostic modality and allows visualization of other associated intra-abdominal abdominal injuries Beware TDR fake-outs in the absence of trauma: congenital hernias and diaphragmatic eventration Always wear a seatbelt
