1 BLUNT SPLEEN MANAGEMENT PROTOCOL 2011

2 A. NOTS Blunt Spleen Management Protocol B. All adult patients with an identified blunt spleen injury (> 14 years of age) C. Prehospitital Recommendations: Follow NOTS triage protocols

3 D. E.D. Recommendations – Ensure 2 good working IVS – Unstable patients with known spleen injuries or positive FAST: Should go to OR ASAP, providing cause of hemodynamic instability is related to their abdominal trauma – Stable Patients: Abdominal/Pelvis CT indicated for any suspected abdominal injuries -CT with IV contrast is study of choice to make diagnosis – If spleen injury is identified at a NON-Trauma Hospital arrange for Transfer – Call Trauma Transfer Center (FCO)

4 E. Initial Treatment Recommendations Treat other identified injuries as indicated Grade I and II injuries – admit for minimum of > 24 hours with serial exams and HCTs Grade III injuries – admit ICU/step down unit, serial HCTS (q 4 -6 hrs) for a minimum of 3 times and until stable Grade III injuries with moderate to large hemoperitoneum – Splenic Artery Angio-embolization (SAE) within 2 hours

5 E. Initial Treatment Recommendations Treat other identified injuries as indicated Grade I and II injuries – admit for minimum of > 24 hours with serial exams and HCTs Grade III injuries – admit ICU/step down unit, serial HCTS (q 4 -6 hrs) for a minimum of 3 times and until stable Grade III injuries with moderate to large hemoperitoneum – – Moderate to Large Peritoneum: defined fluid seen in a least – Splenic Artery Angio-embolization (SAE) ASAP with goal to be within 2 hours

6 E. Initial Treatment Recommendations Treat other identified injuries as indicated Grade I and II injuries – admit for minimum of > 24 hours with serial exams and HCTs Grade III injuries – admit ICU/step down unit, serial HCTS (q 4 -6 hrs) for a minimum of 3 times and until stable Grade III injuries with moderate to large hemoperitoneum - Splenic Artery Angio-embolization (SAE) ASAP with goal to be within 2 hours Grade IV injuries: SAE ASAP with goal to be within 2 hours Grade V injuries: to OR in most circumstances Grades I – IV: that show CT evidence of blush/pseudoaneurysm or extravasation - SAE ASAP with goal to be within 2 hours

7 F. In-Hospital Recommendations Patients should be NPO and on bed rest until HCT stable Grade 1 and 2: minimum of 1 floor day and 2 total hospital days Grade 3-5: minimum of 3 hospital days Splenectomy patients require immunizations prior to DC from the hospital – H. flu – Meningococcus – Pneumococcus

8 F. In-Hospital Recommendations DVT prophylaxis – SCDS upon admission – Stable HCT for hours and no other contraindications- Strongly consider starting chemoprophylaxis until DC (Low molecular weight heparin is preferred)

9 G. Post Discharge Recommendations Documentation that patient was seen in “Trauma Clinic” 1– 4 weeks post discharge Documentation in the chart of when and if the patient as can return to Normal Activity Documentation of need for flu shot and education regarding infections and splenectomy

10 Initial Mangement of a Hemodymically Stable Patient with a Blunt Spleen Injury CT scan with IV contrast Angio-Embolization (within 1-2 hours) Grade I & II can admit to Floor Grade III Moderate/Large hemoperitoneum ICU/Step-down unit* - q 4- 6 hr HCTs until stable X 3 Dropping HCTs for 24 hours, or need to transfuse blood Stable HCTs for 24 hours Can mobilize patient, transfer to floor, and give diet pending other injuries Consider the following options: OR, angio, Repeat CT scan No or Small hemoperitoneum Blush, Extravisation, or Psuedoaneurysm Floor patients: should be mobilized, diet advance and daily HCTs until stable for two days. Grade 1 and 2: minimum of 1 floor day Grade 3-5: minimum of 3 hospital days Splenectomy patients require immunizations Grade IV Grade V

12 Appendix CT Grading of Splenic Injury Spleen injury scale: (advance one grade for multiple injuries, up to grade III) – Grade I: Hematoma: subcapsular, < 10% of surface area Laceration: capsular tear, < 1cm parenchymal depth – Grade II: Hematoma: subcapsular, 10-50% surface area; intraparenchymal, <5cm in diameter Laceration: 1-3cm parenchymal depth which does not involve a trabecular vessel – Grade III: Hematoma: subcapsular, >50% surface area or expanding; ruptured subcapsular or parenchymal hematoma; intraparenchymal hematoma >5cm or expanding Laceration: >3cm parenchymal depth or involving trabecular vessesls – Grade IV: Laceration: laceration involving segmental or hilar vessels producing major devascularization (>25% of spleen) – Grade V: Laceration: completely shattered spleen Vascular: hilar vascular injury which devascularizes spleen

13 Appendix Size of Hemoperitoneum Small Hemoperitoneum - perisplenic blood or blood in Morrison’s pouch Moderate Hemoperitoneum – blood in one or both pericolic gutters Large hemoperitoneum – blood in one or both gutters with additional blood in pelvis
