Place and Duration of Study: Surgical emergency Allied hospital Faisalabad from 01 June 2012 to 31 may 2014. Methods: All patients with traumatic duodenal injuries were included.  Data included patient’s profile, date of admission, mechanism of injury, grade of duodenal injury, type of procedure, and outcome. Results: Total number of cases in period under study was 29.
