Resolving hematoma after six MONTHS???

Interesting. What makes you think this is a fibrous band? Why not resolving
hematoma? I would hesitate to allow contact sports to resume otherwise i
would allow him to do as he pleases.

Subject: CT confirmation of healing spleen

Dear all
I would appreciate the opinion of the members on the CT confirmation of a
healed ruptured spleen. The CT scan is of a 20 year old male injured in a
MVC - initial CT showing a splenic injury managed conservatively and another
6 months later showing a ? fibrous band joining the 2 fragments.

Is this sufficient evidence to allow him to go back to contact sports?  
Or is the band expected to narrow even further in the future?

Thanks very much
