Small bowel perforations due to blunt abdominal injury are rare. In this study, we compiled five cases of traumatic small bowel perforation and then analyzed a number of the prognostic factors. Elapsed time to surgery was identified as the most important prognostic factor, due to the risk of peritonitis. Laparoscopy surgery appears to be a safe, effective procedure in cases where the diagnosis is uncomplicated by other major problems, such as lacerations to the liver or spleen.
