Number of patients and mortality rates per studied year. This figure shows a all patients with an abdominal AIS above 2 (blue bars), the number of injured patients that required an emergency laparotomy (red bars), the number of patients with abdominal trauma that died (green bars), and the number of patients with abdominal trauma that died due to exsanguination (purple bars). These results are depicted per studied year, which shows that the total number of abdominal injuries dictating laparotomy remained similar over the years, as well as the differentiation of the individual injuries found (b). Furthermore, the mortality due to exsanguination was further minimalized over the past years
