Abstract

Diagnostic peritoneal lavage (DPL) is considered the gold standard in the evaluation of patients with suspected blunt abdominal trauma when the results of the abdominal examination are equivocal or when the patient's mental status is altered. In recent years a percutaneous method using the Seldinger technique has been performed. We present a case report of an unusual complication of DPL using the percutaneous method.
