Abstract

We present the case of a 56-year-old man involved in a motorcycle accident. The thoraco-abdominal examinations revealed multiple rib fractures, pneumohemothorax; left diaphragmatic hernia containing the stomach and colon and splenic lacerations. These lesions were addressed surgically by repositioning the stomach, placing a left thoracic drain and suturing the diaphragm.
