The region of the midface represents a challenging area to both reconstructive and aesthetic surgeons. An anatomic study was performed that attempted to identify patterns and variations of the muscular anatomy. The goals of this study were twofold: to identify patterns and variability of the midfacial muscles that might impact on reconstructive efforts and(More)
BACKGROUND The attitudes of surgeons and nonsurgeons regarding the administration of pain medicine prior to arriving at a surgical diagnosis are changing. It is common practice to administer narcotic analgesics prior to a general surgeon's evaluation. Several studies have advocated the safety of this practice in the emergency department. Many of these(More)
BACKGROUND The role of primary repair (PR) of modern day war-related colon injuries remains controversial. METHODS Retrospective review of medical records of combat-wounded soldiers with colon injuries sustained during March 2003 to August 2006 was conducted. Injuries were analyzed according to location: right (n = 30), transverse (n = 13), and left (n =(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to assess the feasibility of utilizing negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) for the treatment of wartime soft-tissue wounds during intercontinental aeromedical evacuation. BACKGROUND Attempts to use NPWT during early phases of overseas contingency operations resulted in occasional vacuum system failures and(More)
BACKGROUND Combat casualties with traumatic amputations (TA) and requiring laparotomy present unique clinical challenges. The purpose of this study was to determine the association of TA on blood/blood product usage, emergency department (ED) and operating room (OR) times, and mortality in those undergoing exploratory laparotomy after combat injury.

BACKGROUND The evacuated hemothorax has been poorly described because it varies with time, it has been found to be incoagulable, and its potential effect on the coagulation cascade during autotransfusion is largely unknown. METHODS This is a prospective descriptive study of adult patients with traumatic chest injury necessitating tube thoracostomy.(More)
The purpose of this study is to determine if adenosine diphosphate (ADP) platelet dysfunction on thromboelastogram (TEG) is associated with increased in-hospital mortality in patients with head trauma. The hypothesis is that ADP dysfunction is associated with increased mortality. This retrospective review evaluated trauma patients admitted to a level 1(More)
Thromboelastography (TEG) with platelet mapping has been proposed as an assay to detect the presence of antiplatelet agents (APA), yet no study has evaluated TEG markers of platelet dysfunction in acute trauma patients stratified by the use of preinjury APA. We hypothesized that patients on preinjury APA would demonstrate prolonged TEG markers of platelet(More)
Group A β-hemolytic streptococcus (GAS) is well known to cause upper respiratory tract or cutaneous infections, but some more virulent species of GAS can lead to a rapidly progressive life threatening soft tissue necrotizing infection and streptococcal toxic shock syndrome (STSS). In the modern era, GAS infections within the female reproductive tract(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate motor vehicle crash fatality rates in the first 2 states with recreational marijuana legalization and compare them with motor vehicle crash fatality rates in similar states without recreational marijuana legalization. METHODS We used the US Fatality Analysis Reporting System to determine the annual numbers of motor vehicle crash(More)
