Anal Necrosis Following Pelvic Crush Injury

Julia Greene,

Arterial haemorrhage within the pelvic circulation can be controlled by nonselective embolization. However, complications are associated with distal ischemia from disruption of the aortoiliac circulation. Reported complications of pelvic crush injury include impotence, lower extremity nerve deficits, left colon ischemia, spinal cord injury, and necrosis of the rectum and gluteal musculature. We report a case of anal canal necrosis after a pelvic crush injury attributed to hypotension, compression by pelvic hematoma, and arterial disruption after selective unilateral transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE).
