Abstract

Trauma affects up to 6% to 7% of all pregnancies, and accounts for up to 46% of maternal death. Adverse consequences such as preterm labor and delivery, abruptio, fetomaternal hemorrhage, and fetal demise may be seen with even apparently minor degrees of injury. Maternal physiologic considerations are reviewed and a protocol for evaluation and management of the injured gravida is presented.
