Abdominal Injuries: General or unspecified injuries involving organs in the abdominal cavity.Wounds, Nonpenetrating: Injuries caused by impact with a blunt object where there is no penetration of the skin.Multiple Trauma: Multiple physical insults or injuries occurring simultaneously.Injury Severity Score: An anatomic severity scale based on the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) and developed specifically to score multiple traumatic injuries. It has been used as a predictor of mortality.Accidents, Traffic: Accidents on streets, roads, and highways involving drivers, passengers, pedestrians, or vehicles. Traffic accidents refer to AUTOMOBILES (passenger cars, buses, and trucks), BICYCLING, and MOTORCYCLES but not OFF-ROAD MOTOR VEHICLES; RAILROADS nor snowmobiles.Seat Belts: Restraining belts fastened to the frame of automobiles, aircraft, or other vehicles, and strapped around the person occupying the seat in the car or plane, intended to prevent the person from being thrown forward or out of the vehicle in case of sudden deceleration.Thoracic Injuries: General or unspecified injuries to the chest area.Wounds, Penetrating: Wounds caused by objects penetrating the skin.Child Restraint Systems: Devices used to protect and restrain infant and child automotive passengers.Abbreviated Injury Scale: Classification system for assessing impact injury severity developed and published by the American Association for Automotive Medicine. It is the system of choice for coding single injuries and is the foundation for methods assessing multiple injuries or for assessing cumulative effects of more than one injury. These include Maximum AIS (MAIS), Injury Severity Score (ISS), and Probability of Death Score (PODS).Wounds and Injuries: Damage inflicted on the body as the direct or indirect result of an external force, with or without disruption of structural continuity.Laparotomy: Incision into the side of the abdomen between the ribs and pelvis.Wounds, Gunshot: Disruption of structural continuity of the body as a result of the discharge of firearms.Wounds, Stab: Penetrating wounds caused by a pointed object.Brain Injuries: Acute and chronic (see also BRAIN INJURIES, CHRONIC) injuries to the brain, including the cerebral hemispheres, CEREBELLUM, and BRAIN STEM. Clinical manifestations depend on the nature of injury. Diffuse trauma to the brain is frequently associated with DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY or COMA, POST-TRAUMATIC. Localized injuries may be associated with NEUROBEHAVIORAL MANIFESTATIONS; HEMIPARESIS, or other focal neurologic deficits.Athletic Injuries: Injuries incurred during participation in competitive or non-competitive sports.Spinal Cord Injuries: Penetrating and non-penetrating injuries to the spinal cord resulting from traumatic external forces (e.g., WOUNDS, GUNSHOT; WHIPLASH INJURIES; etc.).Reperfusion Injury: Adverse functional, metabolic, or structural changes in ischemic tissues resulting from the restoration of blood flow to the tissue (REPERFUSION), including swelling; HEMORRHAGE; NECROSIS; and damage from FREE RADICALS. The most common instance is MYOCARDIAL REPERFUSION INJURY.Retrospective Studies: Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.
(1/444) Non-fatal injuries sustained by seatbelt wearers: a comparative study.

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)

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

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)

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

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)

(4/444) Abdominal injuries and sport.

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)

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

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)

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

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)

(7/444) Blunt abdominal injuries.

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)

(8/444) A foreign body in the spinal canal. A case report.

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)

  • SUMMARY: Recent research suggests that physical examination in combination with bedside ultrasonography may identify children at risk for intraabdominal injury. (chop.edu)
  • These injuries are caused by an object that penetrates the skin, such as a gunshot or stab wound. (drugs.com)
  • Tangential gunshot injury to the inferior vena cava repaired by means of lateral venorrhaphy (arrow). (medscape.com)
  • They are generally caused by low-velocity weapons, meaning the injuries inflicted on a person are typically confined to the path it took internally, instead of causing damage to surrounding tissue, which is common of gunshot wounds. (wikipedia.org)
  • Stab wounds occur four times more than gunshot wounds in the United Kingdom, but the mortality rate associated with stabbing has ranged from 0-4% as 85% of injuries sustained from stab wounds only affect subcutaneous tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • Randomised controlled trials of surgical interventions and non-surgical interventions involving people with abdominal injury who were haemodynamically stable with no signs of peritonitis. (cochrane.org)
  • This appears largely arterial with a prominent pseudoaneurysm, however a component of renal vein / IVC injury is also suspected given a small discrete blush of contrast closer to this area. (radiopaedia.org)
  • Blushes of contrast just posterior and inferior to the left renal vein are suspicious for lumbar venous injury. (radiopaedia.org)
  • Midline supramesocolic hemorrhage or hematoma (superior to the transverse mesocolon) is usually caused by injury to the suprarenal aorta, the celiac axis, the proximal superior mesenteric artery (SMA), or the proximal renal artery. (medscape.com)
  • Lateral perirenal hematoma or hemorrhage suggests injury to the renal vessels or kidneys. (medscape.com)
  • An abdominal strain is a tear or rupture of part of the abdominal muscles, usually at the point where it attaches to the pelvis. (sportsinjuryclinic.net)
  • Another mechanism of injury is related to a direct crush or blow to the major vessels, resulting in an intimal tear with thrombosis or vessel rupture and hemorrhage. (medscape.com)
  • Midline inframesocolic hemorrhage or hematoma results from infrarenal aorta or inferior vena cava (IVC) injury (see the image below). (medscape.com)
  • Lateral pelvic hematoma or hemorrhage indicates injury to the iliac artery, the iliac vein, or both. (medscape.com)
  • Interventions that may be needed depending on severity of the injury include airway, intravenous access, and control of hemorrhage. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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. (mlssoccer.com)
  • Observing a patient with the hope that the person's injury heals naturally and intervening surgically if the need arises is known as selective non-operative management (SNOM) or observation. (cochrane.org)
  • Based on the findings of these two small studies, there is no evidence to support the use of surgical management over an observation protocol for people with abdominal trauma showing no signs of bleeding or infection. (cochrane.org)
  • The findings of abdominal lesions on CEUS are similar to those of CE-CT. (radiologykey.com)
  • Initial stabilization of the patient with abdominal trauma requires well-prepared teams to foster the best probability of patient survival. (nursece4less.com)
  • Allen said he did not know if the latest injury was related to the torn blood vessel that nearly killed Hayden last November after a practice collision with a teammate at Houston. (lawattstimes.com)
  • Penetrating injuries directly disrupt the vessel wall or create intimal flaps secondary to the blast effect. (medscape.com)
  • This can cause tearing of the mesentery of the bowel, and injury to the blood vessels that travel within the mesentery. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sound clinical judgment and a well practiced process of emergency interventions demonstrated by all members of the emergency, critical care and surgical teams are imperative to provide high quality care for the patient with abdominal trauma. (nursece4less.com)
  • It is important to note that initially there may be little in the way of overt clinical signs to indicate that serious internal abdominal injury has occurred, making assessment more challenging and requiring a high degree of clinical suspicion. (wikipedia.org)
  • Nurses and associates are required to practice and be prepared for a systematic approach in order to provide accurate and life-saving interventions for the patient with abdominal trauma. (nursece4less.com)
  • There is contrast extravasation / pseudoaneurysm at the inferior margin of the origin of the coeliac trunk, consistent with further arterial injury. (radiopaedia.org)
