Cystic intestinal pneumatosis (CIP) is the presence of gas bubbles inside the wall of the intestine. In literature it has been reported to be associated with a variety of clinical conditions such as: superior mesenteric ischemia, intestinal perforation, bowel necrosis, infections which can cause mucosal alterations and therefore increasing its permeability, necrotizing enterocolitis in babies, trauma, intestinal obstruction, autoimmune and pulmonary pathologies. Its presence is usually documented by radiological techniques such as abdominal X-ray, CT scan and endoscopy and are usually characterized by the typical pattern of gas bubbles in the wall of the intestine...

Background: Sternum fractures are mostly located on the sternal corpus, seldom on the manubrium. Fractures of the sternal manubrium are, however, more frequently associated with severe concomitant injuries of thoracic organs, and therefore deserve special attention. In addition, in its function as a capstone in between the anterior chest wall and the shoulder girdle, it is exposed to a multiplicity of forces. Therefore the questions arise what types of fractures are observed in today's clinical practice, how to classify them and which treatment options are available...

INTRODUCTION: Interest in uniportal video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is rapidly growing worldwide because it represents the surgical approach to the lung with the least possible trauma and in recent years the subxiphoid approach has been used in the field of thoracic surgery as it is associated with lesser pain because there is no intercostal nerve damage and it provides excellent cosmetic outcomes. This technique was recently introduced for major pulmonary resections and even bilateral approaches in selected patients...

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...

Introduction: Surgery for cardiac trauma is considered fatal and for wounds of the colon by associated sepsis is normally considered; however, conservative management of many traumatic lesions of different injured organs has progressed over the years. Presentation of the Case: A 65-year-old male patient presented with multiple shotgun wounds on the left upper limb, thorax, and abdomen. On evaluation, he was hemodynamically stable with normal sinus rhythm and normal blood pressure, no dyspnea, or abdominal pain...

Background: Right sided tears or rupture are the most common injury to the heart after blunt chest trauma. The majority of these injuries are to the thin walled atrium. Reports of localized right atrial appendage rupture are rare. The classical features of Beck's triad are unreliable in the trauma bay. With the advent of EFAST (Focused assessment with sonography for trauma extended to thorax), Beck's triad should be considered but not used as the primary clinical tool for diagnosis of cardiac tamponade [1]...

RATIONALE: Spontaneous rupture of the branches of left subclavian artery (LSA) without any obvious risk factors is rare. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 51-year-old female patient without history of trauma and hypertension complained about left chest pain. DIAGNOSES: A chest Computed tomography (CT) scan revealed a large pleural effusion (PE) in the left thorax cavity and hemothorax was confirmed by thoracentesis. INTERVENTIONS: The patient underwent surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Gunshot wounding (GSW) is the second most common mechanism of injury in warfare after explosive injury. The aim of this study was to define the clinical burden of GSW placed on UK forces throughout the recent Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. METHODS: This study was a retrospective review of data from the UK Military Joint Theatre Trauma Registry (JTTR). A JTTR search identified records within the 12 year period of conflict between 19 Mar 2003 and 27 Oct 2014 of all UK military GSW casualties sustained during the complete timelines of both conflicts...

BACKGROUND: Portable chest x-ray (CXR) and extended FAST (EFAST) screen patients for thoracic injury in the trauma bay. It is unclear if one test alone is sufficient, if both are required, or if the two investigations are complementary. Study objectives were to define the combined diagnostic yield of EFAST and CXR among stable blunt thoracic trauma patients and to determine if a normal EFAST and CXR might obviate the need for CT scan of the chest. METHODS: All blunt trauma patients ≥15 years presenting to LAC+USC Medical Center in 2016 were screened...

While physicians increasingly recognize nicorandil-related mucocutaneous ulcerations, there are still misdiagnoses, particularly in the case of unusual location and late onset ulceration after nicorandil introduction. The goal of our study was to remind clinicians about the link between nicorandil use and the development of cutaneous ulcerations and to highlight the risk of misdiagnosis. We describe five reports diagnosed by the same dermatologist, complemented by an analysis of the French pharmacovigilance database (FPVD) from 1 January 1994 to 5 January 2017...

BACKGROUND: Combat zone trauma poses a unique set of challenges and injury patterns not seen in the civilian setting. The role of the pediatric resuscitative thoracotomy in combat zones remains unclear given a paucity of data regarding procedure outcomes in this setting. We compare outcomes among children in traumatic arrest undergoing resuscitative thoracotomy versus cardiopulmonary (CPR) resuscitation only. METHODS: We queried the Department of Defense Trauma Registry (DODTR) from 2007 to 2016 for all pediatric subjects that underwent a resuscitative thoracotomy or CPR in the prehospital or emergency department setting during operations in Iraq or Afghanistan...

Background Split-bolus computed tomography (CT) is a recent development in trauma imaging. Instead of multiple scans in different contrast phases after a single contrast bolus, split-bolus protocols consist of one single scan of the thorax and abdomen after two or three contrast injections at different points of time. Purpose To evaluate and compare image quality and injury findings of a new triple-split-bolus CT (TS-CT) protocol of thorax and abdomen with those of a portal venous phase CT (PV-CT) in the same patient group...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has been a rapidly growing and broadly used modality in recent decades. The purpose of this study was to determine how POCUS is incorporated into clinical medicine by analyzing trends of use in the published literature. METHODS: POCUS-related publications were retrieved from the Web of Science (WoS) database. The search results were ranked according to the number of times an article was cited during three time frames and average annual number of citations...

The Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma and Trauma Anesthesiology Society Guidelines recommend prompt and effective multimodal analgesia for rib fractures that combines regional anesthesia (RA) techniques with pharmacotherapy to treat pain, optimize pulmonary function, and reduce opioid related complications. However, RA techniques such as epidurals and paravertebral blocks, are generally underutilized or unavailable for emergency department (ED) patients. The recently described serratus anterior plane block (SAPB) is a promising technique, but failures with posterior rib fractures have been observed...

The Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) measures injury severity of a trauma patient with a numeric method for ranking anatomy-based specific injuries. The summation of the squares of the three most severe injuries in the AIS of six predefined body regions comprises the Injury Severity Score (ISS). It assumes that the mortality of a given AIS value is similar across all body regions. However, such an assumption is less explored in the literature. In this study, we aimed to compare the mortality rates of the patients with the same AIS value in different injured body regions in a level I trauma center...

The incidence of blunt chest trauma (BCT) is greater than 15% of all trauma admissions to the emergency departments worldwide and is the second leading cause of death after head injury in motor vehicle accidents. The mortality due to BCT is inhomogeneously described ranging from 9% to 60%. BCT is commonly caused by a sudden high-speed deceleration trauma to the anterior chest, leading to a compression of the thorax. All thoracic structures might be injured as a result of the trauma. Complex cardiac arrhythmia, heart murmurs, hypotension, angina-like chest pain, respiratory insufficiency or distention of the jugular veins may indicate potential cardiac injury...

BACKGROUND: Triage decision correctness for children in motor vehicle crashes can be affected by occult injuries. There is a need to develop a transfer score (TS) metric for children that can help quantify the likelihood that an injury is present that would require transfer to a trauma center (TC) from a non-TC, and improve triage decision making. Ultimately, the TS metric might be useful in an advanced automatic crash notification algorithm, which uses vehicle telemetry data to predict the risk of serious injury after a motor vehicle crash using an approach that includes metrics to describe injury severity, time sensitivity, and predictability...
