BACKGROUND Acute traumatic coagulopathy (ATC) is an impairment of hemostasis that occurs early after injury and is associated with a 4-fold higher mortality, increased transfusion requirements and organ failure. OBJECTIVES The purpose of the present study was to develop a clinically relevant definition of ATC and understand the etiology of this endogenous(More)
Sokol and Wilson elegantly describe some of the difficulties one encounters when setting up and maintaining a complication registry [1]. From their proposals, it follows that the further the definition is specified, the more restrictive it will be. For example, limiting the definition to a ‘‘result of an operation’’ excludes complications in patients that(More)
In independent studies delirium was associated with higher levels of cortisol, interleukin(IL)s, and S100B. The aim of this study was to simultaneously compare cortisol, IL-6, IL-8, and S100B levels in patients aged 65years and older admitted for hip fracture surgery with and without delirium. Cortisol, IL-6, IL-8, and S100B were assayed in repeated blood(More)
BACKGROUND Disturbance of the sleep-wake cycle is a characteristic of delirium. In addition, changes in melatonin rhythm influence the circadian rhythm and are associated with delirium. We compared the effect of melatonin and placebo on the incidence and duration of delirium. METHODS We performed this multicentre, double-blind, randomized controlled trial(More)
Previous studies have not demonstrated consistent results on the effect of surgical delay on outcome. This study investigated the association between the delay to surgery and the development of postoperative complications, length of hospital stay (LOS) and one-year mortality. Patients that underwent surgery for a hip fracture in a two-year period were(More)
In recent years computed tomography (CT) has become faster and more available in the acute trauma care setting. The aim of the present study was to compare injured patients who underwent immediate total-body CT (TBCT) scanning with patients who underwent the standard radiological work-up with respect to 30-day mortality. Between January 2009 and April 2011,(More)
Nonoperative management (NOM) has become the treatment of choice for hemodynamically stable patients with blunt splenic injury. Results of outcome after NOM are predominantly based on large-volume studies from level 1 trauma centers in the United States. This study was designed to assess the results of NOM in a relatively low-volume Dutch level 1 trauma(More)
INTRODUCTION Total-body Computed Tomography (CT) scans are increasingly used in trauma care. Herewith the observation of incidental findings, trauma unrelated findings, is also increased. The aim of this study was to evaluate the number of incidental findings in adult trauma patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS All consecutive trauma patients that underwent(More)
INTRODUCTION Triage is an important aspect of the management of mass casualty incidents. This study describes the triage after the Turkish Airlines Crash near Amsterdam in 2009. The results of the triage and the injuries of P3 casualties were evaluated. In addition, the role of the trauma mechanism and its effect on spinal immobilisation during transport(More)
The trauma centre of the Trauma Center Region North-West Netherlands (TRNWN) has consensus criteria for Mobile Medical Team (MMT) scene dispatch. The MMT can be dispatched by the EMS-dispatch centre or by the on-scene ambulance crew and is transported by helicopter or ground transport. Although much attention has been paid to improve the dispatch criteria,(More)
