BACKGROUND: Among coagulation disorders, primary fibrinogen deficiency is very rare in dogs. It is divided into hypofibrinogenemia, afibrinogenemia and dysfibrinogenemia. Afibrinogenemia has been described in three dogs. There are, however, no published case reports of primary hypofibrinogenemia in dogs. CASE PRESENTATION: A 1.5 year-old male German Pointer dog was evaluated for a locked-jaw syndrome associated with eye protrusion which appeared after a minor head trauma...

Approximately 9% of all blunt trauma patients suffer pelvic fractures. These fractures can range from insignificant and requiring almost no therapy to massive destruction of the pelvic ring with associated with multisystem injury and life-threatening hypotension which mandates the attention of the trauma surgeon, the orthopedic surgeon, the interventional radiologists and possibly other subspecialists. We present a case of a patient who presented to the emergency room in extremis from massive bleeding from a complex pelvic fracture...

Even though isolated cases of penetrating chest wounds are exceptionally rare in Germany, chest trauma accounts for major morbidity and mortality in over 18 0000 multitrauma patients encountered every year. Injuries range from immediately fatal cardiac wounds and major vessel lacerations to intercostal bleeding, parenchymal damage, chronic haematothorax and secondary empyema. Placement of large-bore chest tubes constitutes a sufficient treatment for most of these pathologies. In select cases further treatment either by minimally invasive techniques (VATS) or conventional thoracotomy is warranted...

BACKGROUND: Although uterine tamponade is an effective treatment for postpartum hemorrhage (PPH), current methods have key limitations in their use, particularly in low resource settings. The XStat™ Mini Sponge Dressing (MSD) is approved for the management of non-compressible wounds in the battlefield/trauma setting. The MSD applies highly compressed medical sponges capable of stopping high-flow arterial bleeding within seconds. The objective of our study was to adopt the MSD for use in managing PPH...

The use of tranexamic acid (TXA) in the treatment of trauma patients was relatively unexplored until the landmark Clinical Randomisation of an Antifibrinolytic in Significant Haemorrhage-2 (CRASH-2) trial in 2010 demonstrated a reduction in mortality with the use of TXA. Although this trial was a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled study incorporating >20,000 patients, numerous limitations and weaknesses have been described. As a result, additional studies have followed, delineating the potential risks and benefits of TXA administration...

BACKGROUND: Time is a crucial factor for the successful early management of the multi-trauma patient. Hybrid operating theaters, which support the integration of surgical treatment and interventional radiology, provide opportunities to reduce the time-to-surgery for life threatening conditions. CASE PRESENTATION: We describe the early successful treatment of a 54-year-old male who sustained multiple injuries when he was hit by a 1000 kg bale of wheat that fell from a height...

Uncontrolled hemorrhage is an important cause of preventable deaths among trauma patients. We have developed a murine model of uncontrolled hemorrhage via a liver laceration that results in consistent blood loss, hemodynamic alterations, and survival. Mice undergo a standardized resection of the left-middle lobe of the liver. They are allowed to bleed without mechanical intervention. Hemostatic agents can be administered as pre-treatment or rescue therapy depending on the interest of the investigator. During the time of hemorrhage, real-time hemodynamic monitoring via a left femoral arterial line is performed...

Von Willebrand disease (vWD) is the most common inherited bleeding disorder. Its association with pregnancy is infrequent. Here we report three cases of vWD associated with pregnancy. The clinical features of this combination are very suggestive. However, difficulties are still encountered during the diagnosis process. The first case was diagnosed for the first time during the patient's second pregnancy despite several episodes of vaginal bleeding and suggestive clinical symptomatology. The second case was diagnosed during childhood and the patient was properly managed during this pregnancy...

New generation devices for long-term mechanical circulatory support are centrifugal pumps having fully magnetically levitated rotors to reduce blood trauma. Recently, the novel HeartMate 3 was cleared for clinical application in Switzerland. In two Swiss University Hospitals part of the "Lausanne-Geneva Transplantation Network," 10 consecutive patients in end-stage heart failure received the HeartMate 3. Device implantation criteria were persistent low output syndrome despite optimal medical treatment. The primary end-point of the study was survival or transplantation to 90 days on the device...

BACKGROUND: Penetrating trauma kills rapidly. Thorough and efficient examination and aggressive hemorrhage control is important to save lives. The aim of this study was to assess the skills of civilian Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) in bleeding examination and control compared to Army Medics. Our hypothesis was that civilian pre-hospital systems perform at a lower level compared to an expert group, and did not have sufficient focus on education and training in examination and treatment of penetrating injuries...

Inferior vena cava injury as well as major liver injury remains a formidable treatment challenge. The most imminent danger is life-threatening bleeding. In this report, we present a case of polytrauma (Injury Severity Score 35) with arupture of the juxtahepatic inferior vena cava which was successfully treated using two-stage approach. The first part of the treatment consisted of damage control laparotomy at a level I trauma center. After stabilization, the patient was air-transported to receive the definitive treatment at a tertiary care facility experienced in hepatopancreatobiliary and transplantation surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) has proven to be a powerful tool in facilitating healing of difficult wounds of a variety of etiologies. The pediatric experience with NPWT has been limited due to concerns about vascular compression and pain associated with treatment. METHOD: A retrospective review was performed to evaluate the therapeutic effect of NPWT on children with difficult wounds due to burns or soft-tissue trauma. NPWT was instituted in the operating room under general anesthesia using a commercially available system...

Interventional radiology (IR) has become an integral part in the management of traumatic injuries. There is an ever-increasing role of IR in traumatic injuries of solid abdominal organs, pelvic and peripheral arteries to control active bleeding by therapeutic embolization or vascular reconstruction using stent grafts. Traditionally, these endovascular treatments have been offered to hemodynamically stable patients. However, in recent times endovascular approach has become preferable to surgery even in hemodynamically unstable patients with injury of surgically difficult-to-access sites...

REVIEW
Wolfgang Korte, Man-Chiu Poon, Alfonso Iorio, Michael Makris
Although inherited fibrinogen disorders (IFD) are primarily considered to be bleeding disorders, they are associated with a higher thrombotic complication risk than defects in other clotting factors. Managing IFD patients with thrombosis is challenging as anticoagulant treatment may exacerbate the underlying bleeding risk which can be life-threatening. Due to the low prevalence of IFD, there is little information on pathophysiology or optimal treatment of thrombosis in these patients. We searched the literature for cases of thrombosis among IFD patients and identified a total of 128 patient reports...

BACKGROUND: Systemic hyperfibrinolysis is an integral part of trauma-induced coagulopathy associated with uncontrolled bleeding. Recent data suggest that plasma-first resuscitation attenuates hyperfibrinolysis; however, the availability, transport, storage, and administration of plasma in austere environments remain challenging and have limited its use. Freeze-dried plasma (FDP) is a potential alternative due to ease of storage, longer shelf life, and efficient reconstitution. FDP potentially enhances clot formation and resists breakdown better than normal saline (NS) and albumin and similar to liquid plasma...
