Injuries associated with serious brachial plexus involvement in polytrauma among patients requiring surgical repair.
We evaluated retrospectively 84 surgical patients from our department, from 2008 to 2011, that had undergone brachial plexus reconstruction. For all, an injury severity scale (ISS) score and all major associated injuries were determined. 72% of patients had an upper, 26% had a complete and only 2% h...
Surgeon commitment to trauma care decreases missed injuries.
We hypothesised that surgeons committed to the trauma service has less missed injuries than surgeons not committed to the trauma service would have. By retrospective analysis of 976 adult patients admitted to the trauma intensive care unit (ICU) at an urban, university-based trauma centre. Missed in...
Improving recovery-Learning from patients' experiences after injury: A qualitative study.
To explore experiences of patients after injury and identify implications for clinical care and support within the hospital setting and primary care. Semi-structured telephone administered qualitative interviews with purposive sampling and thematic qualitative analysis. Patients who have experienced...
CT scan-detected pneumoperitoneum: An unreliable predictor of intra-abdominal injury in blunt trauma.
Free intra-peritoneal air in blunt trauma is a classic sign associated with hollow viscus injury, traditionally mandating laparotomy. In blunt abdominal trauma, the CT scan has become the diagnostic modality of choice. The increased sensitivity of CT scans may lead to detection of free intra-periton...
Mid-term results in relation to age and analysis of predictive factors after fixation of acetabular fractures using the modified Stoppa appr...
Data concerning outcome after management of acetabular fractures by anterior approaches with focus on age and fractures associated with roof impaction, central dislocation and/or quadrilateral plate displacement are rare. Between October 2005 and April 2009 a series of 59 patients (mean age 57 years...
Procedural justice and quality of life in compensation processes.
There is considerable evidence that being involved in compensation processes has a negative impact on claimants' health. Previous studies suggested that this negative effect is caused by a stressful compensation process: claimants suffered from a lack of communication, a lack of information, and fee...
Different biomechanical models of locking and non-locking internal fixations for femoral neck fractures.
In vitro temperature evaluation during cement augmentation of proximal humerus plate screw tips.
The treatment of proximal humerus fractures in patients with poor bone quality remains a challenge in trauma surgery. Augmentation with polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) cement is a possible method to strengthen the implant anchorage in osteoporotic bone and to avoid loss of reduction and reduce the cut...
A plea for Croatian trauma system.
This paper provides an insight into Croatian health system with special focus on trauma care. The current situation is explained from a domestic point of view, but an independent review by foreign observers is also included. Fragmented approach to the treatment of injured patients in Croatia should...
Comparison of minimally invasive percutaneous plate osteosynthesis with open reduction and internal fixation for treatment of extra-articula...
Minimally invasive percutaneous plate osteosynthesis (MIPPO) has become a widely accepted technique to treat distal tibia fractures. However, it remains unclear whether this strategy of biological osteosynthesis with a bridge plate is superior to that of absolute stability with traditional open redu...
