List Epidemiology of Organ Injury in Trauma

frequency of organ injury:
I tried to post the table but copy rights wont allow me to do so, so I have seen some confusion about this and I decided to post this. The list is top 10 but I guess top 3 is all that is needed for the exam. Hope it helps.
Frequency of organ injury: 2 categories; blunt & penetrating

Blunt injury: top 4
1. spleen (27%)
2. kidney (27%)
3. other ( 17%)
4. Liver ( 15%)

Penetrating: top 4
1. Liver (22%)
2. Small bowel (18%)
3. colon (16%)
4. spleen (9%)
Carpe Diem
