Minimal aortic injury: a lesion associated with advancing diagnostic techniques.
TLDR
Ten percent of BAI diagnosed with high resolution techniques have MAI, and these intimal injuries heal spontaneously and hence may be managed nonoperatively, but caution should be exercised in using this form of treatment.
Computed Tomographic Angiography for the Diagnosis of Blunt Carotid/Vertebral Artery Injury: A Note of Caution
TLDR
Current CTA technology cannot reliably diagnose or exclude blunt carotid/vertebral injuries (BCVI) and the current trend towards using CTA to screen for and/or diagnose these rare but potentially devastating injuries is dangerous.
Blunt hepatic injury: a paradigm shift from operative to nonoperative management in the 1990s.
TLDR
There has been a paradigm shift in the management of hemodynamically stable patients with blunt hepatic trauma, and nonoperative management significantly improves outcomes over operative management in terms of decreased abdominal infections, decreased transfusions, and decreased lengths of hospital stay.
Western Trauma Association critical decisions in trauma: penetrating chest trauma.
TLDR
The algorithm and accompanying text represents a safe and reasonable approach to this difficult injury type and attempts to incorporate the advent of recent advances in radiographic screening and selective or expectant management practice.
Western Trauma Association critical decisions in trauma: penetrating neck trauma.
TLDR
The algorithm and accompanying text represents a safe and reasonable approach to this difficult injury type and attempts to incorporate the advent of recent advances in radiographic screening and selective or expectant management practice.
Blunt bowel and mesenteric injuries: the role of screening computed tomography.
TLDR
Helical scanners have high accuracy in detecting blunt bowel/mesenteric injuries and single versus multiple findings are useful in managing these injuries.
Road traffic injury mortality and its mechanisms in India: nationally representative mortality survey of 1.1 million homes
TLDR
In India, RTIs cause a substantial number of deaths, particularly among pedestrians and other vulnerable road users, and interventions to prevent collisions and reduce injuries might address over half of the RTI deaths.
Western Trauma Association Critical Decisions in Trauma: Diagnosis and management of duodenal injuries.
TLDR
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of the American College of Surgeons and the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma.
Diagnosis of blunt bladder injury: A prospective comparative study of computed tomography cystography and conventional retrograde cystography.
TLDR
CT cystography is equivalent to conventional Cystography for detecting the presence or absence of blunt bladder injury and can alleviate the need for a separate conventional cystogram in many blunt trauma patients.
Associated injuries in blunt solid organ trauma: implications for missed injury in nonoperative management.
TLDR
The overall incidence of missed injury is quite low, and should not influence decisions concerning eligibility for NOM, and damage to the pancreas and bowel is significantly associated with liver as opposed to spleen injuries.
