Description:

Mehall et al developed an algorithm for the management of a pediatric patient who is hemodynamically stable after blunt injury to the liver and/or spleen. The premise is that hemodynamic stability is a better predictor of clinical outcome than the injury grade on CT scan. The authors are from the Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock.
