BACKGROUND Fabric-like hemostatic dressings offer promise for hemorrhage control in noncompressible areas, especially given their similarity in form to standard gauze currently in use. Recently, two such products, Combat Gauze (CBG) and TraumaStat (TMS), were introduced. Their performance is evaluated in two vascular injury models. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND The recently developed non-invasive high-intensity focussed ultrasound (HIFU) technique for the destruction of parathyroid adenomas could also be of interest for the treatment of secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHP) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). We conducted a pilot study using this method. METHODS Five chronic haemodialysis(More)
CONTEXT Recombinant factor VIIa (rFVIIa) has been used as an adjunctive therapy for acute post-traumatic hemorrhage and reversal of iatrogenic coagulopathy in trauma patients in the hospital setting. However, investigations regarding its potential use in pre-hospital management of traumatic brain injury (TBI) have not been conducted extensively. AIMS In(More)
INTRODUCTION: Coagulopathy are common complications of hemorrhagic shock (HS). Recently HBOC-201, a novel fluid with oxygen carrying capacity, has been proposed for hypotensive resuscitation and stabilization of HS patients. Coagulation and hemostasis have been studied in a swine uncontrolled hemorrhage model comparing HBOC-201 to standard resuscitation(More)
