BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to identify which age-related groups of hemodynamically stable blunt trauma patients will present a positive cost-to-benefit ratio, in regard to the screening of incidental findings on Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma (FAST). METHODS: We conducted a prospective study using retrospective data taken from the trauma registry of 6,041 consecutive hemodynamically stable blunt trauma patients who underwent FAST at our Level I urban trauma hospital during the year 2009...

BACKGROUND: Hypothermia is common during hemorrhagic shock. To warm the victims or not has been controversial. This study aims to investigate the effect of warming during the initial time of hemorrhage on body temperature, blood pressure, and survival in rat hemorrhagic shock models. METHODS: Forty anesthetized rats were divided into control group (n = 20) and warming group (n = 20). The rats of control group were placed on a wooden pad without heating, and the rats of warming group were placed on a heating pad maintained at 37°C ± 0...

BACKGROUND: Evidence suggests that there may be an association between transfer status (direct admission or interhospital transfer) and outcomes in trauma patients. The purpose of this study was to systematically review the current evidence of the association between transfer status and outcomes for patients. METHODS: Systematic search of Medline and EMBASE databases to identify eligible control trials or observational studies that examined the impact of transfer status on trauma patient outcomes...

REVIEW
Andrew Harston, Craig Roberts
BACKGROUND: Traumatic sternal fractures occur in approximately 3% to 8% of all blunt trauma patients. Most of these fractures are treated conservatively, but a small number require operative intervention. Only a few studies have reported operative fixation of sternal fractures, and no investigation to our knowledge has systematically reviewed the literature on this intervention. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review of the literature published from 1990 through September 2010 regarding the treatment of traumatic sternal fractures...

BACKGROUND: Hemorrhage from pelvic fracture is common in victims of blunt traumatic injury. In 2001, the Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma (EAST) published practice management guidelines for the management of hemorrhage in pelvic trauma. Since that time there have been new practice patterns and larger experiences with older techniques. The Practice Guidelines Committee of EAST decided to replace the 2001 guidelines with an updated guideline and systematic review reflecting current practice...

BACKGROUND: Predicting an intensive care unit patient's outcome is highly desirable. An end goal is for computational techniques to provide updated, accurate predictions about changing patient condition using a manageable number of physiologic parameters. METHODS: Principal component analysis was used to select input parameters for critical care patient outcome models. Vital signs and laboratory values from each patient's hospital stay along with outcomes ("Discharged" vs...

BACKGROUND: The Abbreviated Injury Scale 2008 (AIS 2008) is the most recent injury coding system. A mapping table from a previous AIS 98 to AIS 2008 is available. However, AIS 98 codes that are unmappable to AIS 2008 codes exist in this table. Furthermore, some AIS 98 codes can be mapped to multiple candidate AIS 2008 codes with different severities. We aimed to modify the original table to adjust the severities and to validate these changes. METHODS: We modified the original table by adding links from unmappable AIS 98 codes to AIS 2008 codes...

OBJECTIVES: Inflicted traumatic brain injury associated with Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) is a leading cause of injury mortality and morbidity in infants. A triple-dose SBS prevention program was implemented with the aim to reduce the incidence of SBS. The objectives of this study were to describe the epidemiology of SBS, the triple-dose prevention program, and its evaluation. METHODS: Descriptive and spatial epidemiologic profiles of SBS cases treated at Children's Hospital, London Health Sciences Centre, from 1991 to 2010 were created...

BACKGROUND: To investigate the factors that influence final visual acuity (VA) in open globe injuries. METHODS: The records of patients with open globe injuries who were followed for longer than 6 months between 1998 and 2009 in two different centers were retrospectively reviewed. The data collected included patients' demographics as well as their initial VA, wound location, mechanism and type of injury, clinical findings, and final best-corrected VA. Statistical analysis was conducted using univariate analysis and multiple logistic regression analysis...

BACKGROUND: In the treatment of facial nerve paralysis after temporal bone trauma, it is important to appropriately determine whether nerve decompression surgery is indicated. The aim of this study was to examine the efficacy of facial nerve decompression surgery according to fracture location and the ideal time for surgery after trauma by analyzing the therapeutic outcome of traumatic facial nerve paralysis. METHODS: In total, 66 patients with facial nerve paralysis after temporal bone trauma who were treated at our institution between 1979 and 2009 were studied retrospectively...
