Non-fatal injuries sustained by seatbelt wearers: a comparative study. (1/444)

The injuries sustained by 969 drivers and front-seat passengers in road-traffic accidents were studied. Altogether 196 (20-2%) of the drivers and passengers were wearing seat belts and 773 (79-8%) were not. The injuries among the two groups differed greatly in both severity and distribution. A total of 54 (27-6%) of the seatbelt wearers sustained one or more fractures compared with 300 (38-8%) of the non-wearers, and 18 (9-2%) of the seatbelt wearers were severely injured compared with 300 (38-8%) of the non-wearers. Soft-tissue injuries to the face were sustained by only 29 (14-8%) of the seatbelt wearers compared with 425 (55%) of the non-wearers. Since wearing seatbelts may become compulsory, the type and pattern of injuries to be expected in wearers should be appreciated.  (+info)

Use of ultrasonography in the patient with acute renal trauma. (2/444)

The purpose of this study was to assess the use of emergent ultrasonographic examination in acute traumatic renal injuries. Over a 3 year period, prospective data of all patients who had an emergency ultrasonogram were recorded. Thirty-two patients with 37 renal injuries were studied retrospectively to identify in how many patients the sonogram detected free fluid or a renal parenchymal abnormality. Free fluid in the abdomen was identified in 19 of 32 patients (59%). However, 12 of these 19 patients had concomitant injury, such as splenic rupture requiring splenectomy, severe liver lacerations, or bowel lacerations requiring repair, that were possible causes of the free fluid. Eliminating these patients, only seven of 20 patients with isolated renal injuries had free fluid in the abdomen (35%), whereas 13 of 20 patients (65%) had no evidence of free fluid. All seven patients with free fluid had moderate or severe renal injuries. Renal parenchymal abnormalities were identified on ultrasonograms in eight of 37 (22%) of injured kidneys. The abnormalities were detected more commonly in cases of severe injury (60%). In conclusion, acute injuries of the kidney from blunt abdominal trauma often are associated with significant splenic, hepatic, or bowel trauma. Isolated renal injuries frequently occur without the presence of free fluid in the abdomen. Furthermore, the ultrasonogram of the kidney often is normal with acute renal injuries, but it is more likely to be abnormal with severe (grade II or greater) renal injuries. Sonography may be used in the triage of patients with blunt abdominal trauma and possible renal injury. However, a negative ultrasonogram does not exclude renal injury, and, depending on clinical and laboratory findings, other imaging procedures such as computed tomography should be performed.  (+info)

Production of phospholipase C (alpha-toxin), haemolysins and lethal toxins by Clostridium perfringens types A to D. (3/444)

To obtain high yields of extracellular enzymes and toxins for immunological analysis, type culture collection strains of Clostridium perfringens types A to D and 28 fresh isolates of C. perfringens type A from humans were grown in fermenters under controlled conditions in a pre-reduced proteose peptone medium. The type culture collection strains all showed different characteristics with respect to growth rates and pH optima for growth. Production of phospholipase C (alpha-toxin), haemolysin and lethal activity varied considerably between the different types. Growth and extracellular protein production in fermenters with pH control and static or stirred cultures were compared. Production of all extracellular proteins measured was markedly improved by cultivation in fermenters with pH control. Strain ATCC13124 produced five times more phospholipase C than any of 28 freshly isolated strains of C. perfringens type A, grown under identical conditions. Haemolytic and lethal activities of the ATCC strain were equal or superior to the activities of any of the freshly isolated strains. There were no differences in the bacterial yields and in the production of extracellular toxins between type A strains isolated from clinical cases of gas gangrene and abdominal wounds, and those isolated from faecal samples from healthy persons.  (+info)

Abdominal injuries and sport. (4/444)

Serious abdominal injuries resulting from sport are rare. The potential for misdiagnosis is significant and the consequences may be serious. Patients with abdominal pain should be taken very seriously and investigated with appropriate diagnostic equipment. Sporting bodies have a responsibility to address safety within a particular sport and to change the rules where necessary as injury patterns are identified.  (+info)

Aortic rupture as a result of low velocity crush. (5/444)

A case of aortic disruption in a 35 year old lorry driver is described. This occurred as a result of a low velocity crushing force. Clinicians should be aware that this mechanism of injury may result in aortic disruption as well as the more commonly mentioned severe deceleration force.  (+info)

Power Doppler ultrasonography: alternative to computed tomography in abdominal trauma patients. (6/444)

The aim of this study was to determine if power Doppler ultrasonography, contrast enhanced when necessary, can be used as an alternative to computed tomography in the diagnosis of trauma-related organ rupture or hematoma. Fifteen patients who had sustained abdominal trauma but who had normal results on B-mode scans were included in the study. Twenty organs (13 livers and 7 spleens) were examined with both contrast-enhanced computed tomography and power Doppler ultrasonography in a blinded fashion. Ultrasonographic contrast was used in five patients. Lack of contrast enhancement (computed tomography) or lack of color in power color Doppler ultrasonography in all or part of the organ was taken as a sign of rupture or hematoma. Five ruptures were detected with both modalities (two hepatic and three splenic). Thus, ultrasonography showed no false-positive or false-negative studies when compared to the computed tomographic results. No significant difference was found in the estimated size of the damaged area between the two types of investigation. The study indicates that power color Doppler ultrasonography may be considered an alternative when a computed tomographic scan of a trauma patient is impossible.  (+info)

Blunt abdominal injuries. (7/444)

The management of blunt abdominal injury (BAI) has undergone quite significant changes over recent years. The emphasis is now on the recognition and limitation of the underlying metabolic insult associated with severe abdominal injury. The concepts of damage control and non-operative management while seeming diametrically opposed have both found favour in selected patient groups. The interventional radiologist has opened a new dimension in the control of inaccessible bleeding and is able to contribute to non-operative approaches. The complimentary use of the methods of investigation available for BAI will also improve the accuracy and specificity of diagnosis allowing more appropriate management. Embracing these new concepts of management by all institutions dealing with trauma victims will hopefully reduce the morbidity and mortality of BAI.  (+info)

An 18-year-old man who presented with weakness in his lower limbs, had an upper motor neurone lesion at the D12-L1 level. At laminectomy two stone-like objects were found which proved to be bundles of tiny pieces of wood. They are thought to have entered the cord through an abdominal penetrating injury sustained six years previously.  (+info)

Small Intestine Perforation, Blunt Abdominal Injury vs. Obstructive Ileus due to Adhesions. Small Intestine Perforation, Blunt Abdominal Injury vs. Obstructive Ileus due to Adhesions Left picture: This child has sustained a blunt abdominal trauma as part of a battered child syndrome. The diagnosis is a free intestinal perforation; according to the findings on revision, the perforation is localized in the jejunum on the antimesenteric side, and is visible in the picture at the bottom on the left side. Right picture: The reason for the described clinical presentation is not a constipation; rather, an obstructive ileus due to postoperative adhesions is present which could have been suspected not only from the clinical presentation, but also by a precise history with former abdominal surgery. Compare that with the picture at the bottom on the right side showing an adhesion running over the mesentery and covering two intestinal loops with already compromised blood supply. Besides a complete history, ...
Previous studies have demonstrated that booster seats reduce the risk of abdominal injuries by improving the fit of the seat belt on young children and encouraging better posture and compatibility with the vehicle seat. Recently, several studies have reported cases of abdominal injuries in booster seated children questioning the protective effects of these restraints. The objective of this study was to examine cases of abdominal injuries in booster seated children through parametric modeling to gain a thorough understanding of the injury causation scenarios. The Partners for Child Passenger Safety and CIREN in-depth crash investigation databases were queried to identify children in belt-positioning booster seats with abdominal injuries. The injury causation scenarios for these injuries were delineated using the CIREN Biotab method. The cases were modeled, using MADYMO with variations in key parameters, to determine the ranges of loads and loading rates for the abdomen and thorax. A parametric ...
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To discuss the emergency department evaluation and management of children with blunt abdominal trauma. The review will focus on both the clinical data that can help reduce the use of computed tomography in the evaluation of patients with blunt abdominal trauma and the evidence for the increased use of nonoperative management of patients with blunt abdominal trauma. RECENT FINDINGS: We will examine the recent literature focusing on the utility of physical examination, laboratory data and imaging (both ultrasonography and computed tomography) in detecting intraabdominal injury. SUMMARY: Recent research suggests that physical examination in combination with bedside ultrasonography may identify children at risk for intraabdominal injury. Screening laboratory data appears to be less sensitive to detect these injuries, but is useful in selected patients. Nonoperative management is appropriate in a majority of cases. Further research is needed to determine which low-risk patients ...

Abdominal trauma is an injury to the abdomen. It may be blunt or penetrating and may involve damage to the abdominal organs. Signs and symptoms include abdominal pain, tenderness, rigidity, and bruising of the external abdomen. Abdominal trauma presents a risk of severe blood loss and infection. Diagnosis may involve ultrasonography, computed tomography, and peritoneal lavage, and treatment may involve surgery. Injury to the lower chest may cause splenic or liver injuries. Abdominal trauma is divided into blunt and penetrating types. While penetrating abdominal trauma (PAT) is usually diagnosed based on clinical signs, diagnosis of blunt abdominal trauma is more likely to be delayed or altogether missed because clinical signs are less obvious. Blunt injuries predominate in rural areas, while penetrating ones are more frequent in urban settings. Penetrating trauma is further subdivided into stab wounds and gunshot wounds, which require different methods of treatment. Signs and symptoms are not ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Isolated gallbladder injury after blunt abdominal trauma: a case report and review. AU - Tudyka, Vera. AU - Toebosch, Susan. AU - Zuidema, Wietse. PY - 2007/10/1. Y1 - 2007/10/1. N2 - We describe a case of isolated gallbladder contusion after deceleration trauma. On admission, no evident signs of intra-abdominal injury were present. However, after 24 h observation an explorative laparotomy was performed because of persistent abdominal complaints. A contusion of the gallbladder wall was found with intraluminal haematoma and a cholecystectomy was performed. Isolated injury of the gallbladder after blunt trauma is extremely rare. Risk factors are distention of the gallbladder, deceleration trauma and the presence of a relatively mobile gallbladder. Clinical signs often are very subtle. Delayed presentation is common with signs of hemobilia or obstruction due to intraluminal clots. Ultrasound and computed tomography are suitable diagnostic tools. However, the diagnosis is often ...
Tamer Nabil, Wael Aziz, Salah Saaed. Cairo University Medical School.. Introduction: The Key issue in the choice of investigation is the cardiovascular stability of the patient. Diagnostic peritoneal lavage (DPL) is no longer the gold standard for determination of the need for laparotomy in blunt abdominal trauma not only because more specific and sensitive diagnostic procedures are available like delayed laparoscopic exploration (DLE), but also to avoid the unnecessary laparotomies even in cases of true positive DPL. The aim of this study is to compare conservative versus DLE for blunt abdominal trauma management as regards accuracy of diagnosis, decreasing incidence of complication, decreasing the need for unnecessary laparotomies and to shorten the hospital stay.. Material and Methods: 28 hemodynamically stable patients with blunt abdominal trauma (BAT) were selected randomly and divided into two group, there was no statistically significant difference in the mode of trauma between the two ...

A comparative study of three diagnostic methods used in assessing blunt abdominal trauma revealed that contrast-enhanced sonography proved to have a high diagnostic value than the other two methods.
The patient suffered no complications following the procedure and was discharged after 48 hours of clinical observation.. Discussion. Splenic injury most commonly occurs as a result of BAT due to motor vehicle collisions. Less commonly it may present following BAT sustained in an assault.. Following the pioneering work of paediatric surgeons, the traditional management of splenic injuries has shifted from operative exploration and splenectomy to selective non-operative management (SNOM).[1] Progressive development in the quality and accessibility of accurate imaging modalities and interventional technology has extended the window of opportunity for splenic salvage.. The management options for splenic injury include SNOM, angiographic embolisation and surgical exploration. Management selection is dependent on haemodynamic status, the grade of injury and the presence or absence of associated injuries. Availability of the requisite skills and resources also influences the management approach ...

An abdominal contusion is a soft tissue injury to the abdominal wall (muscles), without significant internal injury. Any direct force applied to the abdomen (fist, foot or seatbelt) can result in this condition. As with other contusions, bleeding occurs to a small degree in the soft tissue and muscles. This may later manifest as a bruise, resulting in pain or tenderness to that area. This type of injury can easily be mistaken for a more serious abdominal injury by the patient.. Common symptoms of abdominal wall contusions include pain that is increased when sitting up, tightening of the abdominal muscles, or straight leg raises.. Treatment of abdominal wall contusions includes the application of ice, with rest. Analgesics such as acetaminophen or anti-inflammatories (ibuprofen) can help reduce pain. Recovery for most abdominal wall contusions is rapid.. ...
BISAC: MED031000. Severe trauma represents one of the biggest issues threatening modern healthcare systems across the globe. Traumatic injury is the leading cause of lost life years worldwide, responsible for an excess of 5 million deaths every year.. The role of laparoscopy in trauma has not paralleled its popularity in other areas of general surgery for several reasons including the emergent nature of many of the operations, the lack of expertise and comfort level of some surgeons and the fear of missed injuries. In this book, the possible indications and pitfalls of integrating minimally invasive surgical techniques into the management of abdominal injuries are examined. Furthermore, post-traumatic haemorrhage is likely to represent the principle cause of preventable deaths amongst patients sustaining major traumatic injuries. Management of these patients and techniques (both old and emerging) are discussed, which may be able to more accurately identify early coagulopathy and enable ...
Wales full-back Liam Williams could miss the entire NatWest 6 Nations with an abdominal injury.. The 26-year-old suffered a recurrence of the problem playing for Saracens against Ospreys earlier this month.. Head coach Warren Gatland revealed that unless the injury responds to treatment Williams will need an operation, ruling him out of the tournament.. An irritated Gatland also suggested the option of surgery on the problem, which had previously kept Williams out for six weeks, should have been taken up earlier.. Hopefully they can get him right but if hes not right he might require surgery, said Gatland.. He potentially had the option of surgery before, and that was not taken up.. Wales also confirmed that fly-half Dan Biggar will miss the first three matches of the tournament.. The 28-year-old suffered a shoulder injury during Ospreys weekend defeat at Clermont Auvergne and will be unavailable for the games against Scotland, England and Ireland.. Wales therefore head into the tournament ...
The abdominal injury that sidelined Adrian Peterson at Houston and limited him this week at practice should not slow his pursuit of 2,000 yards and Eric Dickersons NFL record or dictate how much the Vikings deploy their running back against Green Bay, according to coach Leslie Frazier..

Abdominal trauma and injuries are quite rare in many sports (Ryan, 1999). However, such infrequency of serious abdominal trauma means that serious, albeit rare, conditions are often under-, or worse, undiagnosed. This is because the sports medicine professionals rarely encounter such presentations, and clinical suspicion may be quite low (Barret & Smith, 2012). It is therefore imperative that sports physiotherapists and physical therapists have an awareness of abdominal anatomy, injuries and appropriate management. This is particularly important for those therapists that work closely with sports that have been associated with abdominal trauma. These are often high velocity and contact sports and include:. ...
In the assessment of polytrauma patient, an accurate diagnostic study protocol with high sensitivity and specificity is necessary. Computed Tomography (CT) is the standard reference in the emergency for evaluating the patients with abdominal trauma. Ultrasonography (US) has a high sensitivity in detecting free fluid in the peritoneum, but it does not show as much sensitivity for traumatic parenchymal lesions. The use of Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound (CEUS) improves the accuracy of the method in the diagnosis and assessment of the extent of parenchymal lesions. Although the CEUS is not feasible as a method of first level in the diagnosis and management of the polytrauma patient, it can be used in the follow-up of traumatic injuries of abdominal parenchymal organs (liver, spleen and kidneys), especially in young people or children.
A 34-year-old man presented with significant intra-abdominal and orthopaedic injuries following a high-speed motorbike crash. The man had a history of an anaphylactic reaction to iodine. As a result, the gold standard CT of the abdomen with contrast was unable to be performed to ascertain the exact nature of the intra-abdominal injuries. After stabilisation, an MRI of the abdomen was performed which localised the injuries. The previous contrast anaphylaxis delayed full assessment of the patient and subsequent management. This case discusses the current literature and the management guidelines in a patient with previous anaphylaxis to contrast. ...
INTRODUCTION. Approximately 8% to 10% of abdominal traumas result in an injury to the kidney; 80% of the injuries are produced by blunt trauma [1]. Traumatic, synchronous multiorgan injury in the setting of anomalous anatomy adds to the complexity of surgical exposure and creates a formidable hemostatic challenge. Thus, early recognition of a congenital anomaly is essential in directing a surgical strategy that aims to achieve unconstrained operative exposure.. We present a case of multiorgan injury secondary to blunt abdominal trauma that was sustained during a motor vehicle accident (MVA). We describe the preoperative evaluation that led to the identification of a horseshoe kidney (HSK) and other associated intra-abdominal injuries.. CASE REPORT. A 30-year-old male was brought to a level I trauma center following a high-speed MVA. At the time of presentation, he was hemodynamically stable. He complained of diffuse abdominal pain and pain over the posterior neck and lower thoracic spine. A ...
Diagnostic peritoneal lavage (DPL) was invented by David Root at this hospital (Ancker Hospital, which then became St. Paul Ramsey, now Regions Hospital) in the 1960s. It enjoyed its heyday during the 70s and 80s, when it was done hundreds of times per year at most major trauma hospitals. Now, we do it about 5 times per year. What happened?. As you know, DPL is a qualitative test. It gives a yes/no answer to the question does this patient need an operation? based on red and white blood cell counts. During the mid-1980s, CT scanning was introduced, which provides much more quantitative information about injuries in the abdominal cavity. The improved ability to diagnose abdominal injury, especially solid organ injury, has led to the demise of DPL.. Most solid organ injury results in some free blood in the peritoneal cavity. It doesnt take much blood (10 cc of whole blood mixed with 1 liter of infused crystalloid) to exceed the threshold of 100,000 RBC per ml of aspirate that will send the ...
Damage control surgery is an old type of surgery practiced for many years to save the lives of badly injured patients. Damage control was first practiced in the American navy where a damaged vessel would receive minimal repair to keep it afloat. This translates to the field of medicine where minimal surgery is performed to save the life of a patient, and minimal action is taken to avoid major ailments, including hypothermia, acidosis, and coagulation defects during major trauma. Before World War II damage control surgery was popular, but later this type of surgery was abandoned. However, with a better understanding of the physiology of trauma and a revision of the outcome of badly injured patients, surgeons have reverted to damage control surgery, for example the packing of bleeding organs such as the liver and the controlling of sepsis, rather than taking patients to intensive care for further assessment. Damage control surgery has many benefits for badly injured patients and improves their chances of
The German Pelvic Registry of the German Trauma Society is a multicenter prospective registry which collects data of patients with pelvic injuries since 2003. Beside demographic data (including concomitant injuries) allowing for epidemiological evaluations of the development of surgical care in these patients, namely the operative care is focus of this registry. Beside the chosen procedure or surgical approach, this includes both intraoperative data like time until operation, duration of the procedure or intraoperative blood loss and reduction parameters (pre- and postoperative fracture steps). The clinical course is recorded also including overall morbidity, overall mortality and osteosynthesis-related complications.. The influence of a concomitant abdominal trauma on the quality of care regarding operative parameters like reduction quality or the clinical course in pelvic injuries has not been investigated yet.. The investigators therefore retrospectively analyze the prospective consecutive ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Role of duodenography in the diagnosis of blunt duodenal injuries. AU - Timaran, C. H.. AU - Daley, B. J.. AU - Enderson, B. L.. PY - 2001. Y1 - 2001. N2 - Background: The differentiation of duodenal perforation from duodenal hematoma is not always possible with computed tomography (CT). Our diagnostic guideline has included duodenography to investigate CT findings of periduodenal fluid or wall thickening. However, the utility of duodenography as a diagnostic study in blunt abdominal trauma is not defined. We evaluated duodenography as a diagnostic test in patients with suspected blunt duodenal injuries (BDIs). Methods: During a 10-year period, 96 patients out of 25,608 trauma admissions had CT findings of possible BDI and underwent duodenography. Demographic and clinical data, diagnostic methods, and management were derived from prospectively collected data.

Synposis - This was a planned subanalysis of a prospective, multicenter observational study of children ≤ 18 years of age with blunt torso trauma conducted in 20 EDs in the PECARN. They had clinicians document their suspicion for the presence of intra-abdominal injuries needing acute intervention (defined as death due to abdominal injury, surgical intervention, angiographic embolization, blood transfusion secondary to intra-abdominal hemorrhage, or IV fluids x2 nights in patients with pancreatic or GI injury) as , 1% (low-risk), 1-5%, 6-10%, 11-50%, or ,50% prior to knowledge of abdominal CT scanning. Their total population was 11,919 patients. IAI undergoing acute intervention was diagnosed in 203 (2%) of patients. Abdominal CT scans were obtained in 2,302/2,667 (86% 95% CI 85-88%) with clinician suspicion ≥ 1% and in 3,016/9252 (33% 95% CI 32-34%) with clinician suspicion ,1%.

PHOENIX -- Many of those injured in Mondays Boston Marathon bombing suffered shrapnel wounds. Surgeons were forced to perform numerous amputations.. Medical expert Dr. Art Mollen spoke to Kaley OKelley about how injuries like that are treated, and how doctors deal with a mass catastrophe like Mondays.. Emergency room doctors, they often dont see bombing victims, says Dr. Mollen. So when you have patients coming in with amputations and shrapnel injuries and abdominal injuries and lacerations, and you have basically bone and skin that has been macerated, its very difficult to take care of those injuries when youre not used to taking care of them.. Dr. Mollen says many of the injuries were in the lower extremities, including the legs and abdomen. The bomb was on the ground, he says. So runners had legs amputated, spectators had legs amputated, and they had abdominal injuries as well. And that causes massive tissue and bone degradation.. ...
The Abdominal Pressure Twin Sensors (APTS) for Q3 and Q6 dummies are composed of soft polyurethane bladders filled with fluid and equipped with pressure sensors. Implanted within the abdominal insert of child dummies, they can be used to detect abdominal loading due to the belt during frontal collisions. In the present study - which is part of the EC funded CASPER project - two versions of APTS (V1 and V2) were evaluated in abdominal belt compression tests, torso flexion test (V1 only) and two series of sled tests with degraded restraint conditions. The results suggest that the two versions have similar responses, and that the pressure sensitivity to torso flexion is limited. The APTS ability to detect abdominal loading in sled tests was also confirmed, with peak pressures typically below 1 bar when the belt loaded only the pelvis and the thorax (appropriate restraint) and values above that level when the abdomen was loaded directly (inappropriate restraint). Then, accident reconstructions ...

Studies have shown that dummies can be used to study various issues relating to an unrestrained drivers interaction with the steering system in frontal crashes. However, current dummies have limitations in simulation of car occupants and to assess the spectrum of injury types and mechanisms. Human cadaver subjects were used to study abdominal injury and severe steering wheel deformation as part of an evaluation of energy absorbing steering systems.. A predominant factor influencing abdominal injury in these tests was the impact location of the lower rim, injury being associated with the rim aligned 50 mm below the xiphoid. The dummies developed approximately twice the impact force than the cadaver subjects in these severe tests with a noncompressible column, in part due to the chest of the dummies bottoming out on a rigid spine. Flexibility of the human spine resulted in the cadaver inverting the steering wheel rim below the hub in the most severe test with a noncompressible column. In ...
This is a view of the diaphragm and Liver interface. You should notice a bright white echogenic line of the diaphragm around the liver - above which is the pleural space, and below is the Liver. You should appreciate a mirror image artifact of the liver above the diaphragm when there is no thoracic fluid. Pleural effusions (and hemothorax) will appear black above the diaphragm (without a mirror image artifact) and the spine shadows will also be seen extending beyond the diaphragm as fluid allows its visualization. Look between the diaphragm and the liver for any intraperitoneal free fluid as (although rare) fluid may only be located here depending on the location of the laceration ...

AMSTERDAM - With a title bout on the card for his season finale, FC Twente defender Oguchi Onyewu is day-to-day with an abdominal muscle strain suffered in training late last week.. The US stalwart was a late scratch for last Sundays KNVB Cup final triumph over Ajax in Rotterdam. As of yet, his club is unsure whether Onyewu will be ready in time for this Sundays monster league rematch in Amsterdam.. He injured a muscle across his stomach on Thursday, Twente press officer Richard Peters told MLSsoccer.com on Tuesday afternoon. He was not on the training pitch today. We will be looking day-to-day to see [if he will rejoin training].. Having collected the cup for a third time, the Tukkers will now attempt to claim their first-ever domestic double by repeating as Eredivisie champs. Twente need at least a draw to protect their one-point penthouse edge to the finish line.. Onyewu has worked 14 matches across all competitions since arriving at De Grolsch Veste on loan from AC Milan this January. ...

J Am Acad Orthop Surg, Vol 17, No 9, September 2009 Hans-Christoph Pape, MD, Paul Tornetta, III, MD, Ivan Tarkin, MD, Christopher Tzioupis, MD, Vani Sabeson, MD and Steven A. Olson, MD. The optimal timing of surgical stabilization of fractures in the multitrauma patient is controversial. There are advantages to early definitive surgery for most patients. Early temporary fixation using external fixators, followed by definitive fixation (ie, the damage control approach), may increase the chance for survival in a subset of patients with severe multisystem injuries. Improved understanding of the pathophysiology of trauma has led to a greater ability to identify patients who would benefit from damage control surgery. A patient is classified as physiologically stable, unstable, borderline, or in extremis. The stable patient can undergo fracture surgery as necessary. An unstable patient should be resuscitated and adequately stabilized before receiving definitive orthopaedic care. The decision whether ...

Although abbreviated surgery with planned reoperation (damage control surgery) is now widely used to manage major trauma patients, the procedure and its component interventions have not been evaluated in randomized controlled trials (RCTs). While some have suggested the need for such trials, they are unlikely to be conducted because of patient safety concerns. As animal studies may overcome several of the limitations of existing observational damage control studies, the primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of damage control versus definitive surgery in experimental animal models of injury. We will search electronic databases (Medline, Embase, PubMed, Web of Science, Scopus, and the Cochrane Library), conference abstracts, personal files, and bibliographies of included articles. We will include RCTs and prospective cohort studies that utilized an animal model of injury and compared damage control surgery (or specific damage control interventions or adjuncts) to

Diagnostic peritoneal lavage (DPL) or diagnostic peritoneal aspiration (DPA) is a surgical diagnostic procedure to determine if there is free floating fluid (most often blood) in the abdominal cavity. This procedure is performed when intra-abdominal bleeding (hemoperitoneum), usually secondary to trauma, is suspected. In a hemodynamically unstable patient with high-risk mechanism of injury, peritoneal lavage is a means of rapidly diagnosing intra-abdominal injury requiring laparotomy, but has largely been replaced in trauma care by the use of a focused assessment with sonography for trauma (FAST scan) due to its repeatability, non-invasiveness and non-interference with subsequent computed tomography (CT scan). Abdominal CT and contrast duodenography may complement lavage in stable patients, but in an unstable or uncooperative persons, these studies are too time-consuming or require ill-advised sedation. Magnetic resonance imaging is extremely accurate for the anatomic definition of structural ...
Children restrained with lap belts may sustain severe injuries. We investigated the frequency of each type of injury associated with seatbelt contusions. The medical records of all trauma patients with ICD-9 codes for abdominal wall contusions from January 1, 1999, to December 31, 2001, were reviewed. All patients with seatbelt contusions were included in the study. Age, seat position, weight, restraint-type, sex, and mechanism of injury were noted. There were 1447 admissions for trauma over the 3-year period. Forty-six patients (ages 4-13) had a seatbelt contusion. Thirty-three wore lap belts, and 13 wore lap and shoulder harnesses. Twenty-two children required abdominal exploration. Small bowel injuries were the most common intra-abdominal injuries. Facial injuries were the most common associated injuries. Forty-eight per cent of children with seatbelt contusions in our institution required surgery. The smaller patients tend to have higher frequency of abdominal injuries. The presence of ...
Laparoscopic surgery has greatly improved surgical outcome in many areas of abdominal surgery. But many concerns of safety have limited its application in abdominal trauma. We hypothesized that laparoscopy could be safe and efficacious in treatment of patients with abdominal trauma, and reduce the laparotomy related complications (i.e. wound infection, pain, or long hospital stay) as avoiding unnecessary laparotomy. From January 2006 to August 2012, a total of 111 patients underwent emergent surgical exploration (laparoscopic, 41; open laparotomy, 70) in Andong General Hospital. Of the 41 patients subjected to laparoscopy, 30 patients had suffered blunt trauma, the remaining 11 patients had sustained penetrating trauma. 31 patients were treated exclusively by laparoscopy and 10 patients underwent laparoscopy-assisted surgery. The conversion rate was 18%. Major complication was none without postoperative mortality. Comparing laparoscopic surgery with open laparotomy, lesser wound infection, early gas

New research published in the August 2007 issue of the Journal of Spinal Cord Medicine indicates lap belt injuries sustained by children in motor vehicle accidents can be more serious than they initially appear. Injuries to children can occur in auto accidents where they have been improperly restrained in their seatbelts. Not only can back and spinal cord injuries occur, but also rupture to the organs and major blood vessels as well as bone fractures to the back and rib cage regions. This study indicated a very high association between spinal fractures, spinal cord injuries and intra-abdominal injuries. In other words, when one of these injuries is found, the others are also likely to be found. Unfortunately, spinal fractures and intra-abdominal injuries can often be difficult to diagnose. Moreover, delayed diagnosis and treatment can be devastating. Given these new findings, we urge parents to properly restrain their children in vehicles at all times, and when using custom restrains, be sure to ...

Liver trauma:. The liver is one of the most frequently damaged organs in blunt trauma, and liver trauma is associated with a significant mortality rate.. Epidemiology. In blunt abdominal trauma, the liver is injured ~5% (range 1-10%) of the time.. Clinical presentation. Patients can present with right upper quadrant pain, right shoulder tip pain (from diaphragmatic irritation), hypotension and shock .. Aetiology. The mechanism for liver trauma can be from blunt (e.g. motor vehicle collision, fall, direct blow, etc.) or penetrating trauma (e.g. gunshort, stabbing).. Types. Most (~80%) of liver injuries are minor (grades I to III). There is a range of injuries:. ...
Damage control is well established as a potentially life-saving procedure in a few selected critically injured patients. In these patients the lethal triad of hypothermia, acidosis, and coagulopathy is presented as a vicious cycle that often cannot be interrupted and which marks the limit of the patients ability to cope with the physiological consequences of injury.. The principles of damage control have led to improved survival and to the stopping of bleeding until the physiologic derangement has been restored and the patient could undergo a prolonged operation for definitive repair. ...
In this study the specificity of 99% shows the appropriateness of the FAST scan as a rule in technique. The sensitivity is only 78%, but this may be influenced by the fact that the scan was performed early in the course of resuscitation and the trial protocol did not mandate a repeat scan. There is also no specific mention in the theatre notes of the patients with false negative scans of the presence or absence of free fluid at laparotomy. It is well known that ultrasound is not accurate in the early assessment of solid organ injury3; however, the early recognition of free intraperitoneal fluid in these patients is helpful in expediting further management decisions. In previously published studies the sensitivity of FAST ranges from 75% to 100% and specificity from 88% to 100%.1,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16 In practice FAST is readily repeatable and if there is suspicion of intra-abdominal injury a repeat scan is advised.. There were a number of difficulties with the trial protocol. At the start ...

In reviews of vascular injuries sustained in military conflicts, abdominal vascular injuries have been extraordinarily rare. For example, DeBakey and Simeones classic article on 2471 arterial injuries during World War II included only 49 that occurred in the abdomen, an incidence of 2%.1 Reporting on 304 arterial injuries from the Korean conflict, Hughes noted that only 7, or 2.3%, occurred in the iliac arteries.2 In the review by Rich et al of 1000 arterial injuries in the Vietnam War, only 29, or 2.9%, involved abdominal vessels.3 Finally, a recent review of abdominal injuries during the Iraqi conflict documented only four injuries to major vessels in 145 patients undergoing laparotomy (2.8%).4 ...

Abstract INTRODUCTION: Damage control surgery (DCS) is an established option for managing severely injured trauma patients. However, its role in the management of similar patients in the developing world is debatable. The purpose of this study is to describe characteristics and outcomes of patients undergoing DCS. METHODS: All trauma patients requiring laparotomies from 1996 to 2011 at a tertiary care hospital in South Asia were reviewed. DCS was defined in a patient who underwent a truncated laparotomy where the fascia was primarily left open, with the intention of physiological optimization in the Intensive Care Unit, followed by definitive surgery. The primary outcome was in-hospital mortality. Multivariate logistic regression was used to determine the independent predictors of mortality after adjustment for potential confounders. RESULTS: Of 258 patients, 47 underwent DCS. 40% patients were transferred from other hospitals. The time between injury and operation was 152 minutes (IQR: 90-330). Intra
There has been a slow shift toward nonoperative management of many injuries that used to demand a quick trip to the operating room. Liver and spleen injury is one of the best examples, with extremely good success rates (95%). Kidneys fall into this category, too.. The pancreas is another solid organ. Perhaps we can do the same thing? A number of pediatric surgeons have been attempting to manage children with pancreatic injury. Low grade injuries (principally contusions) have been managed expectantly for some time. Could higher grade injuries (duct injury) be managed this way as well? How about using repeat imaging, percutaneous drainage, stenting via ERCP, and TPN to avoid the OR in hemodynamically stable kids?. A recent paper looks at this practice critically. Nine years of registry data at two Level I pediatric centers was reviewed to identify all high grade (III-IV) pancreatic injuries. They isolated 39 children with this injury (which is quite a few!). They were separated into two groups ...

Background: Patients with severe thoracic injuries and subsequent physiological decline may not be candidates for initial definitive treatment. Despite limited data, this subset of patients may benefit from the implementation of thoracic damage control, which should begin in the emergency room. Methods: A literature search was conducted through Medline following PRISMA guidelines. Articles that focused on damage control surgery, the use of damage control techniques in traumatic injuries, and the use of damage control in civilian populations were selected. Due to the paucity of literature and lack of Level I evidence on this subject, studies published in any year were considered. Results: A search of the literature yielded 119 studies. Most of these were excluded based on inclusion and exclusion criteria. Thirty-five articles were selected for review. The majority of these were classified as Level III, IV, or V evidence. Limitations: Limitations of this article are similar to all PRISMA-guided ...
