Ideally, proximal (and when applicable, distal) control needs to be achieved prior to exploration of a retroperitoneal hematoma. For retroperitoneal hematomas in Zone 1, irrespective of a penetrating or blunt mechanism, mandatory exploration is required.

It is difficult to tell the specific cause of immediate surgery in the earlier reports because laparotomy for all causes, such as associated splenic hemorrhage, was included. 71 If bleeding appears to originate from the retrohepatic vena cava or hepatic veins and it is ongoing, emergent exploration is the only option because arterial embolization is ineffective in these scenarios. Patients with labile blood pressure and parenchymal injury may be better served with emergent exploration depending on the time necessary to assemble the angiography team.
A successful national emphasis on injury prevention lessened the injuries from motor vehicle crashes, and the operative management for blunt torso trauma became infrequent. Penetrating trauma, at one time the most prevalent indication for thoracic, abdominal, and vascular operations in urban trauma centers, became much less common for reasons that are still debated in social science circles. The emergence of other surgical specialists (thoracic, vascular, otolaryngology) additionally diverted many injuries away from trauma surgery, and angioembolization and endovascular stenting further decreased operative intervention.
