Abstract

Although minimally invasive surgery (MIS) has been utilized in selective trauma patients, there a relative paucity of literature on its role in both blunt and penetrating trauma in the pediatric population. Our purpose is to review the current literature on the role of MIS in abdominal and thoracic pediatric trauma. A review of the literature, indications, risks, and benefits of MIS in trauma will be presented. Relevant literature was obtained from use of the PubMed database.
