The Advanced Trauma Operative Management (ATOM) course is a simulation course adopted by the American College of Surgeons to teach operative management of primarily penetrating, traumatic injuries. Although it is clear that overall operative trauma exposure is decreasing, the educational benefit of ATOM for residents with different amounts of trauma(More)
We report five cases of bilateral eye injuries from airbag deployment in motor vehicle crashes and review the world's literature on ocular injuries associated with airbags. The cases in the literature were identified by cross-referencing Medline searches from airbags and ocular injuries. Additional cases were identified after review of references from each(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this article is to familiarize radiologists with the specific characteristics of foreign bodies, obtained from image interpretation, to guide further management. Details of object morphologic characteristics and location in the body gained through imaging form the backbone of the classification used in the treatment of ingested(More)
BACKGROUND Critical administration threshold (≥3 units of packed red blood cells/h or CAT+) has been proposed as a new definition for massive transfusion (MT) that includes volume and rate of blood transfusion. CAT+ has been shown to eliminate survivor bias and be a better predictor of mortality than the traditional MT (>10 units/24h). End-tidal CO2 (ET(More)
Dioctophymatosis is an infestation by Dioctophyma renalis (the giant kidney worm), a relatively uncommon parasitic roundworm that infects carnivorous mammals. Since the early 1900s, dioctophymatosis has been confirmed in < 20 humans worldwide. A 70-year-old man attended our Hospital, complaining of having expelled 2 large worms while urination along with(More)
BACKGROUND Bladder and/or urethral injuries (BUIs) secondary to pelvic fractures are rare in children and are associated with a high morbidity. These injuries are much less likely to occur in females and are often missed in the emergency department. To help clinicians detect these injuries in female children, larger studies are needed to identify risk(More)
Pelvic fracture urethral injuries are uncommon injuries that are frequently overlooked in the emergency department. We present a case of a 2-year-old girl whose urethral trauma was initially missed and potentially worsened by the placement of a urinary catheter. The clinical and diagnostic features of these rare injuries are discussed along with the(More)
The ability to return to work (RTW) postinjury is one of the primary goals of rehabilitation. The modified Rankin Scale (mRS) is a validated simple scale used to assess the functional status of stroke patients during rehabilitation. We sought to determine the applicability of mRS in predicting RTW postinjury in a general trauma population. The trauma(More)
OBJECTIVE Our institution began Advanced Trauma Operative Management (ATOM) simulation course in 2007 for senior residents with the aim of increasing opportunities for surgical trainees to gain operative trauma experience. The aim of our study was to evaluate the effect of the ATOM simulation course on residents' choice of trauma as a career as demonstrated(More)
BACKGROUND Penetrating neck trauma is uncommon in children; consequently, data describing epidemiology, injury pattern, and management are sparse. The aim of this study was to use the National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB) to describe pediatric penetrating neck trauma (PPNT). METHODS The NTDB was queried for children (defined as <15 years old) with PPNT between(More)
