OBJECTIVE To examine the difference in force mechanisms between fatal and potentially survivable MVC aortic injuries (AI) compared to non-AI severe thoracic injuries (ST). METHODS Of 324 autopsied MVC driver or front seat passenger fatalities (1997-2000), there were 43 fatal AI (36 scene deaths, 7 hospital deaths) and 5 additional AI survivors. RESULTS(More)
We report a case of failure of thumbtacks used in achieving last-resort hemostasis in a gunshot injury to the presacral venous plexus/sacrum. Four of five thumbtacks used detached. The exact mechanism of failure is not known. To our knowledge, there are no reports of failure of these hemostatic devices in the literature. This finding suggests to us that(More)

INTRODUCTION A comprehensive and up-to-date network meta-analysis (NMA) helps to determine the comparative efficacies of nucleos(t)ide analogs (NAs) in patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB). The aim of this NMA was to assess the efficacy of telbivudine versus adefovir, entecavir, lamivudine, and tenofovir in nucleos(t)ide-naïve hepatitis B e antigen(More)
This review investigated the relative performance of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) (alone or with full field digital mammography (FFDM) or synthetic digital mammography) compared with FFDM alone for detecting breast cancer lesions in asymptomatic women. A systematic review was carried out according to systematic reviewing principles provided in the(More)
INTRODUCTION Renal safety is an important factor in selecting the most appropriate nucleos(t)ide analog (NA) treatment for patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB). This systematic literature review and network meta-analysis aimed to assess renal function associated with telbivudine treatment compared to other NAs in patients with CHB. METHODS A systematic(More)
