OBJECTIVE: Coagulopathy is known to be associated with burn injury. Our group has showed that, in spinal cord injury patients, coagulopathy is associated with an increase in VAP. We hypothesized that the same association exists between coagulopathic burn patients and ventilator associated events. METHODS: Patients admitted for burn care between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2015 who required mechanical ventilation were included in the study. Ventilator-associated events (VAEs) as defined by the Center for Disease Control were categorized as no event, ventilator-associated condition, infection-related ventilator-associated complication, and possible VAP...

INTRODUCTION: Early trauma-induced coagulopathy may increase susceptibility to nosocomial infections such as ventilator-associated pneumonia. However, the relationship between trauma- induced coagulopathy and the development of ventilator-associated pneumonia in spinal cord injury patients has not been evaluated. METHODS: We conducted a 5-year retrospective study of 300 spinal cord injury patients admitted to Level 1 trauma center. Standard coagulation studies were evaluated upon arrival, prior to fluid resuscitative efforts, and at 24  h after admission...

BACKGROUND: A survival advantage has been observed among patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma undergoing maximal cytoreductive surgery and adjuvant therapy. Elderly patients are considered higher risk for these radical operations and are commonly not offered surgical treatment. We reviewed our experience with extended pleurectomy and decortication among patients 70 years or older and compared them with a cohort of younger patients undergoing extended pleurectomy and decortication for malignant pleural mesothelioma...

BACKGROUND: Maximal cytoreductive surgeries--extrapleural pneumonectomy and extended pleurectomy and decortication (EPD)--are effective surgical treatments in selected patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma. Extended pleurectomy and decortication results in equivalent survival yet better health-related quality of life (HRQoL). METHODS: Patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma were studied for the effects of EPD on HRQoL and pulmonary function. The European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Core Quality of Life Questionaire-C30 was used to evaluate HRQoL before operation, and at 4 to 5 and 7 to 8 months postoperatively...

OBJECT: Extracranial cerebrovascular injury is believed to be an important cause of neurological injury in patients who have suffered blunt trauma. The authors sought to determine the timing and mechanisms of ischemic stroke in patients who suffered traumatic cerebrovascular injury (TCVI). METHODS: This is a prospective study of all patients with TCVI who were admitted to a Level I trauma center during a 28-month period. All patients who suffered blunt trauma and had risk factors for TCVI underwent screening CT angiography (CTA) of the head and neck on admission...

A 46-year-old patient supported by a biventricular assist device (BiVAD) was transferred to our institution for evaluation for heart transplant. The patient was found to have a large intracranial hemorrhage with profound deterioration of neurologic status. The poor prognosis prompted the decision to withdraw care and pursue organ donation. Because the patient did not meet brain death criteria, nonheart-beating donor organ donation was pursued. After the termination of care, the BiVAD was modified: the left side to provide organ preservative solution and the right side to allow drainage...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to determine whether performance on a simulator model of carotid artery stenting correlates with previous endovascular experience and to assess the effects of repetition and training. METHODS: Participants were stratified to untrained and advanced skill groups on the basis of number of endovascular procedures previously performed. Baseline performance was assessed by means of a pretest, and participants were randomized to practice and no-practice groups...
