Management of post-traumatic retained hemothorax: A prospective, observational, multicenter AAST study.
Is early venous thromboembolism prophylaxis safe in trauma patients with intracranial hemorrhage.
We found no evidence that early VTE prophylaxis increases the rate of IHI progression in hemodynamically stable patients with TBIs. The natural rate of IHI progression observed is comparable with previous studies. Although not powered to detect differences in the incidence of DVT and pulmonary embol...
Isolated severe traumatic brain injuries sustained during combat operations: demographics, mortality outcomes, and lessons to be learned fro...
We reviewed the epidemiology of these injuries from the Joint Trauma Theater Registry (JTTR), contrasting these results with civilian counterparts from the National Trauma Databank (NTDB). Isolated severe brain injuries (defined as head abbreviated injury scale [AIS] ≥3 and no other body region AI...
"Never be wrong": the morbidity of negative and delayed laparotomies after blunt trauma.
The objective of this study was to investigate the 30-day morbidity of a negative laparotomy (NEGLAP) in blunt abdominal trauma. No previous work has exclusively examined blunt abdominal trauma patients, used a control group, or determined the complication burden incurred by a NEGLAP. In this retros...
A biomechanical comparison of two triple-screw methods for femoral neck fracture fixation in a synthetic bone model.
Fixation of femoral neck fractures is often accomplished by several screws inserted along the neck axis. Alignment and number of screws remain at the discretion of the surgeon. Two fracture repair methods were compared. Sixteen large, left, adult, synthetic femurs, known as Third Generation Composit...
Arterial oxygenation can fall critically during intramedullary nailing of pathological femoral fractures.
We hypothesized that unfavorable hemodynamic and oxygenation trends milder than catastrophic ones can be found intraoperatively in most patients with a pathological fracture and cancer-affected lungs. Eleven patients with a femoral metastatic fracture or an impending fracture were studied in general...
Proper estimation of blood loss on scene of trauma: tool or tale?
Visually estimated amount of blood loss may influence decision making in the prehospital setting. The purpose of this study was to determine the ability and accuracy of paramedics and emergency physicians to visually estimate a volume of external blood loss and the influence of different vital signs...
Still unsafe, still in use: ongoing epidemic of all-terrain vehicle injury hospitalizations among children.
We identify pediatric hospitalization trends for ATV injuries, provide national benchmarks, and discuss policy and prevention implications. We used data (1997-2006) from the kid's inpatient database, the only all-payer inpatient care database for children in the United States. Children and adolescen...
Incidence and analysis of simultaneous bilateral radial head and neck fractures at a level I trauma center.
: The incidence of simultaneous bilateral fractures was 1.48%. Nonoperative treatment was performed in 86.8% (n = 59) of the cases. Solid bony union was achieved in all patients. Full satisfaction concerning treatment was achieved in 97% of the patients. The Mayo Elbow Performance Score showed an ove...
