BACKGROUND: The optimal tube size for an emergent thoracostomy for traumatic pneumothorax or hemothorax is unknown. Both small catheter tube thoracostomy and large-bore chest tube thoracostomy have been shown to work for the nonemergent management of patients with traumatic pneumothorax or hemothorax. This study was conducted to compare the efficacy of a small chest tube with that of a large tube in emergent thoracostomy due to chest trauma. Our hypothesis was that there would be no difference in clinical outcomes including tube-related complications, the need for additional tube placement, and thoracotomy, with the replacement of large tubes with small tubes...

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a significant health concern classified as mild, moderate, and severe. Although the indications to perform brain computed tomography (CT) are clear in moderate and severe cases, there still exists controversy in mild TBI (mTBI). We designed the study to evaluate the significance of distracting pain in patients with mTBI. The study population included patients with mild traumatic brain injury (GCS ≥13). Moderate and high risk factors including age <18 months or ≥60 years, moderate to severe or progressive headache, ≥2 episodes of vomiting, loss of consciousness (LOC), post-traumatic amnesia, seizure or prior antiepileptic use, alcohol intoxication, previous neurosurgical procedures, uncontrolled hypertension, anticoagulant use, presence of focal neurologic deficits, deformities in craniofacial region, and penetrating injuries were excluded...

BACKGROUND: The appropriate sequence of different imagings and indications of thoracic computed tomography (TCT) in evaluating chest trauma have not yet been clarified at present. The current study was undertaken to determine the value of chest X-ray (CXR) in detecting chest injuries in patients with blunt trauma. METHODS: A total of 447 patients with blunt thoracic trauma who had been admitted to the emergency department (ED) in the period of 2009-2013 were retrospectively reviewed...
