PURPOSE: Resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) is a technique for temporary stabilization of patients with non-compressible torso hemorrhage. This technique has been increasingly used worldwide during the past decade. Despite the good outcomes of translational studies, clinical studies are divided. The aim of this multicenter-international study was to capture REBOA-specific data and outcomes. METHODS: REBOA practicing centers were invited to join this online register, which was established in September 2014...

BACKGROUND: Current guidelines state that trauma patients at risk of spine injury should undergo prehospital spine immobilization to reduce the risk of neurological deterioration. Although this approach has been accepted and implemented as a standard for decades, there is little scientific evidence to support it. Furthermore, the potential dangers and sequelae of spine immobilization have been extensively reported. The role of the paramedic in this process has not yet been examined. The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of prehospital evaluations for the presence of spine fractures made by paramedics...

PURPOSE: In patients following severe trauma sometimes the physiological condition or soft tissue status may not allow definitive fixation of a femoral fracture. In these patients, an external fixator can be placed to temporarily stabilise the fracture, after which definitive fixation can be performed in a second procedure. The aim of this study was to compare the postoperative wound infection and union rates of patients treated with direct intramedullary nailing (IMN) and patients treated with the 'two-stage treatment'...

PURPOSE: The initial assessment of severely injured patients in the resuscitation room requires a systematic and quickly performed survey. Whereas the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS(®))-based algorithm recommends focused assessment with sonography in trauma (FAST) among others, recent studies report a survival advantage of early whole-body computed tomography (WBCT) in haemodynamically stable as well as unstable patients. This study assessed the opinions of trauma surgeons about the early use of WBCT in severely injured patients with abdominal trauma, and abdominal CT in patients with isolated abdominal trauma, during resuscitation room treatment...

INTRODUCTION: Fall from heights is high energy injuries and constitutes a fraction of all fall-related trauma evaluations while bearing an increase in morbidity and mortality. We hypothesize that despite advancements in trauma care, the overall survivability has not improved in this subset of trauma patients. METHODS: All adult trauma patients treated after sustaining a fall from heights during a 40-month period were retrospectively reviewed. Admission demographics, clinical data, fall height (ft), injury patterns, ISS, GCS, length of stay, and mortality were reviewed...
