Abstract

This article offers a comprehensive review of colon trauma from World War I to the present.

Where data are less compelling, recommendations and suggestions are provided for future research. Topics highlighted include destructive and nondestructive colon injuries, rectal injuries, on-table colonic lavage, colonic bypass tubes, risk factors, perioperative antibiotics, and colostomy closure.
