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)
INTRODUCTION On 25th February 2009, a Boeing 737 crashed nearby Amsterdam, leaving 126 victims. In trauma patients, some injuries initially escape detection. The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence of Delayed Diagnosis of Injury (DDI) and the tertiary survey on the victims of a plane crash, and the effect of ATLS(®) implementation on DDI(More)

Kontraindikationen Kalkaneusfraktur oder örtliche Infektionen. Operationstechnik Kleine Hautinzision medial der Sehne, etwas oberhalb der Ruptur. Eng begrenzte(More)
OBJECTIVES Acute wrist trauma in children is one of the most frequent reasons for visiting the emergency department (ED). Radiographic imaging in children with wrist trauma is mostly performed routinely to confirm or rule out a fracture. The aim of this study was to determine how many radiographs of the wrist show a fracture in children following wrist(More)
BACKGROUND Acute trauma of the wrist is one of the most frequent reasons for visiting the Emergency Department. These patients are routinely referred for radiological examination. Most X-rays however, do not reveal any fractures. A clinical decision rule determining the need for X-rays in patients with acute wrist trauma may help to percolate and select(More)
In mass casualty incidents (MCI) a large number of patients need to be evaluated and treated fast. Well-designed radiological guidelines can save lives. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) radiological guidelines in the MCI of an aeroplane crash. Medical data of all 126 survivors of an aeroplane crash were(More)
INTRODUCTION Difficulties have been reported in the patient distribution during Mass Casualty Incidents. In this study we analysed the regional patient distribution protocol (PDP) and the actual patient distribution after the 2009 Turkish Airlines crash near Amsterdam. METHODS Analysis of the patient distribution of 126 surviving casualties of the crash(More)
BACKGROUND Worldwide, the base deficit is available as an objective indicator of acid base status. We used the base deficit as a measure of physiologic derangement in a Trauma and Injury Severity Score (TRISS)-like model as a predictor for outcome in trauma patients. METHODS We prospectively recorded data of 349 consecutive trauma patients admitted to the(More)
BACKGROUND Up to 30% of patients suffer from long-term functional restrictions following conservative treatment of distal radius fractures. Whether duration of cast immobilisation influences functional outcome remains unclear. METHODS/DESIGN The aim of the study is to evaluate whether the duration of immobilization of non or minimally displaced distal(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the injuries and distribution of casualties resulting from the crash of Turkish Airlines flight TK 1951 near Schiphol Airport on 25 February 2009. DESIGN Retrospective, descriptive. METHOD We reviewed the hospital case notes of all casualties of the airplane crash and scored triage at the scene, time to emergency department,(More)
