  4. Orthopedic trauma from recreational all-terrain vehicle use in central Kentucky: a 6-year review.

    Journal of Trauma 62(5):1163 (2007) PMID 17495719

    All-terrain vehicle (ATV) crashes and injuries have become an increasing concern for the medical community. After the expiration of federal guidelines in 1998, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission has tracked an increasing incidence of usage and injury. This retrospective review ...
  5. Dalteparin versus enoxaparin for venous thromboembolism prophylaxis in acute spinal cord injury and major orthopedic trauma patients: 'DETECT' trial.

    Journal of Trauma 62(5):1075 (2007) PMID 17495705

    To compare the impact of switching from enoxaparin 30 mg subcutaneously (SC) twice daily to dalteparin 5,000 units SC once daily for venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis in critically-ill major orthopedic trauma and/or acute spinal cord injury (SCI) patients. DETECT was a retrospective, coho...
  6. A controlled trial of brief intervention versus brief advice for at-risk drinking trauma center patients.

    Journal of Trauma 62(5):1102 (2007) PMID 17495708

    Numerous reports document that preinjury alcohol use is associated with all modes of injury requiring treatment in a trauma center, with 25% to 50% or more of patients testing positive for alcohol at the time of admission. There is evidence that in trauma patients unaddressed alcohol use problem...
  7. Agreement between emergency room and discharge diagnoses in a population of injured inpatients: determinants and mortality.

    Journal of Trauma 62(5):1207 (2007) PMID 17495726

    Various factors contribute to the quality of care of an injured patient at the emergency room (ER), and a correct diagnosis can improve and accelerate care. The aim of this study was to evaluate the agreement between diagnoses assigned in the ER and those assigned after hospital admission to pat...
  8. Changes in thoracolumbar computed tomography and radiography utilization among trauma patients after deployment of multidetector computed tomography in the emergency department.

    Journal of Trauma 62(5):1153 (2007) PMID 17495716

    Diagnostic-quality thoracolumbar spine (TLS) images, generated from routine thoracoabdominal multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) data, have been demonstrated superior to conventional radiography (CR) for TLS injury. We evaluated thoracoabdominal computed tomography (CT) and TLS utilization ...
  9. Nonunion after functional brace treatment of diaphyseal humerus fractures.

    Journal of Trauma 62(5):1157 (2007) PMID 17495717

    To assess which fractures of the humeral diaphysis are prone to nonunion after functional bracing by analyzing patients that present for treatment of nonunion after brace treatment. Thirty-two patients treated operatively for a nonunion of the diaphyseal humerus after functional brace treatment ...
  10. Porta hepatis injury: a multidisciplinary approach.

    Journal of Trauma 62(5):1284 (2007) PMID 17495738

  11. Use of a stent to treat a traumatic right renal artery injury.

    Journal of Trauma 62(5):1316 (2007) PMID 17495748

  12. Implementation of a rapid response team decreases cardiac arrest outside of the intensive care unit.

    Journal of Trauma 62(5):1223 (2007) PMID 17495728

    Patient safety and preventable inhospital mortality remain crucial aspects of optimum medical care and continue to receive public scrutiny. Signs of physiologic instability often precede overt clinical deterioration in many patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate our early experience...
  13. Early versus late recombinant factor VIIa in combat trauma patients requiring massive transfusion.

    Journal of Trauma 62(5):1095 (2007) PMID 17495707

    Coagulopathy is a consequence of severe trauma, especially in massively transfused patients (>or=10 units of red blood cells in 24 hours), and is associated with increased mortality. We hypothesized that recombinant factor VIIa (rFVIIa) administered to massive transfusion patients before transfu...
  14. Effects of age and obesity on hemodynamics, tissue oxygenation, and outcome after trauma.

    Journal of Trauma 62(5):1192 (2007) PMID 17495724

    The aims of this study are (1) to describe the early time course of hemodynamic and tissue perfusion/oxygenation patterns in the elderly and in obese patients who survive and those who die after trauma; and (2) to evaluate postinjury hemodynamic patterns for use as guides for resuscitation and s...
  15. Transfer of pediatric trauma patients to a tertiary pediatric trauma centre: appropriateness and timeliness.

    Journal of Trauma 62(5):1229 (2007) PMID 17495729

    To study the appropriateness of, and time taken, to transfer pediatric trauma patients in New South Wales to The Children's Hospital at Westmead (CHW), a pediatric trauma center. All trauma patients transferred to CHW from June 2003 to July 2004 were included in the study. Indications and time p...
