BACKGROUND: Hemorrhagic shock is characterized by tissue hypoperfusion caused by a sharp reduction in the effective circulating volume of blood. The key to successful resuscitation lies in eliminating the shock as soon as possible while simultaneously restoring blood perfusion to vital organs. We present the applicability of pulsed arterial blood reinfusion for resuscitation of hemorrhagic shock. METHODS: Sixty rabbits were randomly assigned to resuscitation and control groups...

Degloving hand injuries present challenging situations to hand surgeons as they present with difficulties in reconstructive microsurgery, particularly in multiple digital injuries. Time is a limiting factor when multiple degloving finger amputations are present. Thus, we proposed a repair method for multiple degloving finger injuries that involves coverage with a distal-based reverse forearm flap of all injured fingers in a two-stage procedure. Early vigorous physical therapy after pedicle division of the flap at postoperative third week eliminates joint stiffness problems at wrist and metacarpophalangeal joints...

An 11-year-old morbidly obese boy was diagnosed with pancreatic pseudocyst. Following fine needle aspiration, the cyst recurred in 1-month follow-up. Therefore, endoscopic drainage and cystoduodenostomy was performed following endosonography. Control ultrasonography (USG) revealed a completely shrunken cyst. During the 3 years of follow-up, the patient was asymptomatic with no evidence of cyst on computerized tomography scans. Endoscopic drainage and cystoduodenostomy is a minimally invasive, effective, and safe approach in the management of pancreatic pseudocysts in children...

Shotgun injury is a trauma that leads to soft tissue defects, in which important structures such as the tendon and bone are exposed with fractures in the distal lower extremity. Because this region has insufficient soft tissue support, local flap options are highly limited. Although the most suitable options are free or perforator flaps for contemporarily reconstructing that region; owing to such highenergy traumas, the available local flaps are becoming more suitable. Besides having various advantages, bipedicled flaps are commonly used for reconstructing small- and medium-sized lower extremity defects...

BACKGROUND: Capitellar fractures are rare elbow injuries and can cause severe limitation of function if not properly managed. Numerous treatments have evolved, from closed reduction and cast immobilization to open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF), so as to achieve a stable joint that allows early mobilization. We determined the functional outcomes of treating these fractures with ORIF using Herbert screws via an extensile lateral approach. METHODS: Fifteen patients with capitellar fractures were included in this retrospective study...

BACKGROUND: Burn injuries facilitate invasive infections and sepsis not only by destroying the continuity of the protective skin barrier but also through systemic effects. The burn wound, blood, and urine samples are frequently cultured to determine the pathogen agent. The aim of this study was to analyze pathogen growth in patients' cultures confirmed as "infection positive" by the hospital Infection Control Committee and to assess the clinical implications of these growths. METHODS: Hospitalized patients included in the study were those with a total burned body surface area of >10% and "presence of infection" confirmed by the Infection Control Committee...

Massive hemorrhage causes instant and early deaths because of hypovolemia. However, even if the victim makes it to the hospital, hypothermia, metabolic acidosis, and coagulation impairments caused by bleeding pose a great risk for survival. Many topical hemostatic agents are developed for neck, armpit, or groin injuries that are not amenable to tourniquet application and for extremity wounds to be used in conjunction with tourniquets. This paper focuses on those hemostatics that differ based on the action mechanism and are suitable for pre-hospital setting and summarizes the latest recommendations regarding their usage...

The liver is the most commonly injured intra-abdominal organ after blunt trauma. The management of massive liver injury is complex. Percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage is the first approach considered, particularly for proximal bile duct strictures after liver surgery. A 27-year-old female patient was transferred to our emergency department with grade V blunt injury. Regarding the patient's unresponsive hemodynamic instability, right hepatectomy was performed. The patient presented with benign biliary duct stricture after surgery that were treated via the percutaneous approach...

Foreign body ingestion is a common problem in children. Most of these foreign bodies spontaneously pass through the gastrointestinal tract. When there is a persistent foreign body in the abdomen, it is impossible to make a diagnosis without exploration. We herein present the case of a child who was admitted to our hospital with a coin trapped in Meckel's diverticulum and our laparoscopic approach in this case. The diagnosis of Meckel's diverticulum should be considered when there is a prolonged lodgment of a foreign body in the right lower quadrant, and the laparoscopic approach is the preferred choice in these cases...

The formation of external carotid artery (ECA) pseudoaneurysms caused by stab wounds is a rare vascular anomaly. Although the surgical exploration of the ECA segment is the standard treatment, endovascular treatment (EVT) can be considered if there is difficulty in identifying the source of bleeding in the injured regions that are difficult to operatively access. Here we treated a young patient who had hemorrhagic instability with hemorrhage-induced coagulopathy caused by a zone III cervical stab wound with a pseudoaneurysm from the main trunk of the ECA; the patient underwent EVT and successful hemostasis...

Klingsor syndrome or self-Inflicted traumatic penile amputation is a rare clinical entity that is associated with psychiatric disorders, command hallucinations, religious preoccupations, substance abuse, and isolation from or neglect by society. In addition to being infrequently encountered, it is a rare surgical emergency, with paucity of data on appropriate and timely management to ensure optimal functional outcomes. We report the case of a 25-year-old unmarried male who inflicted this injury upon himself in a fit of paranoia as a way to expiate his sins and earn solace from God...
