    Journal of Trauma 62(6):1421 (2007) PMID 17563659

    The incidence of blunt thoracic and abdominal injuries needing surgical intervention is low in Quebec tertiary trauma centers. The competence of general surgeons in trauma-related procedures might be compromised by such low patient volume unless they frequently perform non-trauma surgical procedures...
