BACKGROUND Attempts are made with emergency department thoracotomy (EDT) to salvage trauma patients who present to the hospital in extremis. The EDT allows for relief of cardiac tamponade, internal cardiac massage, and proximal hemorrhage control. Minimally invasive techniques, such as endovascular hemorrhage control (EHC) are available, but their noninferiority to EDT remains unproven. Before adopting EHC, it is important to evaluate the current outcomes of EDT. We hypothesized that EDT… CONTINUE READING
