Blunt trauma injuries to the pancreas are rare but are associated with significant overall mortality and a high complication rate. Motor vehicle collisions are the leading cause of blunt pancreatic trauma, followed by falls, and sports injuries. We discuss the decision-making process used during the clinical courses of 3 patients with life-threatening blunt pancreatic injuries caused by traumatic falls. We also discuss the utility of the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma Organ Injury Scale (AAST-OIS), which provides a system for grading pancreatic trauma...

Introduction: Posterior fossa extradural hematoma (PFEDH) is rare among the traumatic brain injury and represent about 4-7% cases of all EDHs. This rare condition is rapidly fatal unless identified and intervened timely. Because of limited space in posterior fossa, comparatively small volume can cause clinical deterioration. Early diagnosis by cranial computed tomography and emergent evacuation is vital for a good outcome. Materials and Methods: This study was conducted at Level I trauma center at All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India...

Penile injuries in children are usually uncommon and are predominantly associated with pelvic trauma or as postcircumcision injuries. The authors present a rare case of penile dislocation with penile inversion in a 5-year-old child occurring due to blunt pelvic injury. The child presented 3 months after pelvic injury with a suprapubic catheter for urinary diversion and absent penis with only penile skin visible. The presence of dislocated penile body was detected on magnetic resonance imaging, which was subsequently confirmed intraoperatively...

We present a case of posterior capsular defect with traumatic cataract after blunt trauma in which an extended focal length intraocular lens (IOL) was implanted in the bag after conventional phacoemulsification and anterior vitrectomy. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography performed preoperatively aided in the confirmation and documentation of the capsular integrity. Intraoperative trocar anterior chamber (AC) maintainer allowed AC maintenance without further complications. IOL was well centered postoperatively at 6 months, and the unaided visual acuity was 20/20 for distance and N8 for near...

BACKGROUND: Survivors of trauma are at increased risk of dying after discharge. Studies have found that age, head injury, injury severity, falls and co-morbidities predict long-term mortality. The objective of our study was to build a nomogram predictor of 1-year and 3-year mortality for major blunt trauma adult survivors of the index hospitalization. METHODS: Using data from the Singapore National Trauma Registry, 2011-2013, we analyzed adults aged 18 and over, admitted after blunt injury, with an injury severity score (ISS) of 12 or more, who survived the index hospitalization, linked to death registry data...

INTRODUCTION: Hemorrhagic shock is a major cause of death after trauma. An additional blunt chest trauma independently contributes to mortality upon the development of an acute lung injury (ALI) by aggravating pathophysiological consequences of hemorrhagic shock. The maintenance of hydrogen sulfide availability is known to play an important role during hemorrhage and ALI. We therefore tested the impact of a genetic 3-mercaptopyruvate sulfurtransferase mutation (Δ3-MST) in a resuscitated murine model of traumatic-hemorrhagic shock...

Background An emergency thoracotomy can be performed either immediately at the site of trauma or in the emergency department or operating room for resuscitation of patients in extremis or life-saving treatment for patients with thoracic injury. It remains a procedure associated with high mortality rates, and there is a paucity of data from Asia. This study analyzed our six-year experience of emergency trauma thoracotomy in an acute general hospital in Singapore. Methods This retrospective analysis was based on experience in a single institution with all emergency trauma thoracotomies performed by general surgeons...

Blast injuries are often caused by more than one mechanism, do not occur in isolation, and typically elicit a secondary multi-system response. Research efforts often do not separate blast injuries caused by blast waves from those caused by blunt force trauma and other mechanisms. 15 experts from nine different NATO nations developed in the HFM Research Task Group (RTG; HFM-234 (RTG)) 'Environmental Toxicology of Blast Exposures: Injury Metrics, Modelling, Methods and Standards' Guidelines for Conducting Epidemiological Studies of Blast Injury...

BACKGROUND: Data suggests that clinicians, when evaluating pediatric patients with blunt head trauma, may be over-ordering head computed tomography. Prior decision instruments aimed at aiding clinicians in safely forgoing CTs may be paradoxically increasing CT utilization. This study evaluated a novel decision instrument that aims for high sensitivity while also improving specificity over prior instruments. METHODS: We conducted a planned secondary analysis of the NEXUS Head CT decision instrument (DI) among patients less than 18 years old...

INTRODUCTION: Coagulopathy is a common complication after severe trauma. The efficacy of 4-factor Prothrombin Complex Concentrate (4-PCC) as an adjunct to FFP in reversal of coagulopathy of trauma has not been studied. The aim of our study is to compare 4-PCC+FFP vs. FPP alone for the treatment of COT. METHODS: We reviewed all trauma patients >18y who received PCC+FFP or FFP alone at our Level I trauma center from 2015-16. We excluded patients on preinjury oral anticoagulants...
