A Misestimated Aspect of Tropical Traumatology: Abdomen Penetrating Injuries Caused By Buffalo Horn. Review of 64 Cambodian Cases

These injuries are frequent in Cambodia; they are work casualties and patients are most often young males (65 p. 100 under 20 years). In half of the cases there is no visceral damage and when it happens it is, in 76,7 p. 100 of the cases, limited to a single viscus. Rules of treatment are not much different from those of war surgery and must take in account the socio-economic and cultural environment.
