To perform this examination, a catheter is snugly fitted into the penetrating abdominal wound and secured to the wound edges by surgical suture material; 50-60 cc of urographic water-soluble contrast material is then injected under pressure through the catheter and into the wound. Penetrating injury to the abdominal cavity can be demonstrated by the intraperitoneal spread of contrast to outline loops of bowel and other abdominal viscera.
