This review examines pancreatic trauma and its management in the light of recent experience. The incidence, mechanism, classification, diagnosis, treatment and complications of pancreatic trauma are discussed. The difficulty in establishing the diagnosis is addressed and possible solutions are provided. The case for conservative surgery in the absence of pancreatic duct damage is outlined. The importance of draining all pancreatic injuries is emphasized.
