The patient in this case was assaulted and sustained blunt force trauma to the abdomen. She was intermittently hypotensive, FAST exam revealed free fluid, and CT scan showed a grade IV splenic laceration. Here, Dr. Williams and Dr. Suah at UChicago Medicine perform an exploratory laparotomy and splenectomy.
