Blunt trauma to the chest can damage any thoracic organ. Heart valve damage and particularly mitral apparatus occurs relatively rare, and the patients are expected to become acutely symptomatic. However, in patients with multiple traumas, other dominant severe damages tend to draw away the attention of the physicians resulting in neglect of less salient heart injuries. Here, we present a patient with history of blunt chest trauma and incidental finding of posttraumatic severe mitral regurgitation.

PURPOSE: To investigate the effect of debridement combined with recombinant human epidermal growth factor (rhEGF) on wound healing, scar formation, serum epidermal growth factor and inflammatory factors in patients with oral and maxillofacial trauma. METHODS: Eight-two cases with oral and maxillofacial trauma treated in our hospital (January 2015 to December 2016) were retrospectively analyzed. All patients received routine treatment, 41 received rhEGF besides routine treatment (experimental group), 41 patients received only cosmetic debridement and suturing (control group)...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the clinical effect of simple osteotome sinus floor elevation without bone grafting in the posterior maxilla area with less bone height. METHODS: Twenty eight cases with posterior maxillary bone deficiency were included.Their residual alveolar bone height (RBH) was less than 7 mm. 40 ITI implants were implanted. Among them, 6 implants were implanted in the sites with RBH less than 4 mm (group 1), 34 were implanted in the sites with RBH between 4 to 7 mm (group 2)...

PURPOSE: The safety and effectiveness of ceftolozane-tazobactam for the treatment of multidrug-resistant (MDR) Pseudomonas aeruginosa pneumonia in a patient receiving intermittent hemodialysis are reported. CASE REPORT: A 79-year-old African-American man arrived at an emergency trauma center from a nursing home via ambulance with shortness of breath and potential nasogastric tube misplacement. His medical history included end-stage renal disease (ESRD) for which he was receiving intermittent hemodialysis 3 times per week, hypertension, sacral ulcer, coronary artery bypass graft surgery, and P...

BACKGROUND: Due to prioritizing care and concomitant injuries, foot fractures in polytrauma patients often receive limited attention initially. However, as foot function is important, treatment and diagnosis of these fractures should be accurate. The aims of this study were to assess the incidence and distribution of foot fractures in polytrauma patients and to examine possible risk factors for delayed diagnosis of foot fractures. METHODS: This was a retrospective study on all adult (≥18 years) polytrauma (ISS ≥16) patients admitted to a single level 1 trauma center between 2006 and 2016...

BACKGROUND: No consensus exists in the literature on the use of uniform emergency room trauma team activation criteria (ERTTAC). Today excessive over- or undertriage rates continue to be a challenge for most trauma centres. Application of ERTTAC, published for use in the German TraumaNetwork DGU® , at a Swiss trauma centre resulted in a high overtriage rate. The aim of the investigation was to analyse the ERTTAC in detail with the intention of possible improvement. METHODS: The investigation included consecutive adult (age > 15 years) trauma patients treated at the emergency department of a level II trauma centre from 01...

Persistent post-concussion symptoms (PPCS) occur frequently after mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). The identification of patients at risk for poor outcome remains challenging since valid prediction models are missing. The objectives of the current study were to assess the quality and clinical value of prediction models for PPCS , and to develop a new model based on the synthesis of existing models and addition of complaints at emergency department (ED). MTBI patients (Glasgow Coma Scale score 13-15) were prospectively recruited from three Dutch level I trauma centers between 2013-2015 in the UPFRONT study...

Quadrilateral space syndrome (QSS) is a rare disorder characterized by axillary nerve and posterior humeral circumflex artery (PHCA) compression within the quadrilateral space. Impingement is most frequently due to trauma, fibrous bands, or hypertrophy of one of the muscular borders. Diagnosis can be complicated by the presence of concurrent traumatic injuries, particularly in athletes. Since many other conditions can mimic QSS, it is often a diagnosis of exclusion. Conservative treatment is often first trialed, including physical exercise modification, physical therapy, and therapeutic massage...

The results of a study examining differences between U.S. adolescent and adult abortion fund service recipients are presented in this paper. Using existing case data from 2010 to 2015 from the National Network of Abortion Funds (N = 3,288), a secondary data analysis was conducted to determine whether or not the experiences of adolescent (n = 481) and adult abortion patients (n = 2,807) who received financial assistance to help pay for an abortion differed. Fisher's exact tests examined differences in dichotomous variables, and regression examined differences in procedural costs, patient resources and expected travel distances to obtain an abortion...

Azoospermia can be diagnosed in about 10%-15% of the infertile male population. To overcome the problem of failure to produce spermatozoa in the ejaculate in patients with nonobstructive azoospermia (NOA), testicular sperm extraction (TESE) may be performed to find the focal area of spermatogenesis. A 47-year-old man with NOA presented for treatment of secondary couple infertility. The patient underwent a first TESE 7 years earlier with cryopreservation, and an intracytoplasmic sperm injection-embryo transfer ended in a term pregnancy...

High-flow priapism is a rare condition mainly caused by perineal trauma. Laceration of cavernosal artery results in a formation of arterial-lacunar fistula with unregulated blood flow causing prolonged erection. We present a case of a 25-year-old man with high-flow priapism and concurrent erectile dysfunction treated with repeated selective embolisation with only a partial effect. When no further embolisation was possible, we assumed on conservative management even through the fistula was still present. Spontaneous detumescence occurred 9 months, and erectile function has fully restored 24 months after the injury...

PURPOSE: Mycobacterium abscessus, and rapidly growing mycobacteria in general, are rare but increasing causes of central nervous system (CNS) infections. The aim of this study is to highlight the importance of considering these microorganism in the differential diagnosis of CNS infections, obtaining a prompt diagnosis, and improving clinical outcomes. METHODS: Case report and literature review. RESULTS: We report a case of meningeal infection in a patient who underwent decompressive craniectomy after a craniofacial trauma...

BACKGROUND: Hip fractures in patients 65 years and older are associated with significant morbidity and mortality. With the steady increase in the elderly population, we implemented an evidence-based clinical practice guideline for the management of hip fractures to optimize patient care and surgical outcomes. AIMS: To evaluate the effects of a multidisciplinary hip fracture care pathway on patient outcomes in the care of elderly patients. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of the differences in outcomes prior to (January-October 2014) and after (November 2014-April 2016) implementation of a hip fracture care pathway at a regional Level I trauma center was performed...
