The article discusses various papers published within the issue, including one on mission predicts mortality in patients with severe pelvic fractures and severe hemorrhagic shock by R. Abt and colleagues, another on traumatic deaths in the emergency room by I. Tulikoura and one on initial detection of lung contusions by spiral CT.

    Background: In multiply injured patients, definitive stabilization of major fractures is performed whenever feasible, depending on the clinical condition. Questions/purposes: We therefore asked whether (1) any preoperative indicators predict major complications after major extremity surgery; (2)...

    Objectives. We examined the relationship between partial end-tidal CO2 (pet) and mean arterial pressure in patients with traumatic hemorrhagic shock, who were receiving constant minute ventilation. Methods. In 61 patients we continuously measured pet CO2 with a capnograph, direct arterial...

    Background. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effect of haemorrhagic shock on the outcome of fracture healing. Material and methods. Forty-two male Wistar rats were randomly divided into a control group and a shock group. After producing a tibia fracture we induced shock by creating a...

    Introduction The pelvis is the central part of the body that receives the weight from the vertebral column and transfers it to the lower extremities. It protects the internal organs with its specific structure and shape. Objective The study aims to compare the clinical outcomes of emergency...

    Background: Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma (FAST) is widely used in pelvic fracture patients. We examined the performance of FAST for detecting hemoperitoneum and predicting the need for intra-abdominal hemorrhage control in major pelvic fracture patients. Methods: A 5-year...

J.; Mommsen, P.; Zeckey, C.; Tegeder, T.; Geerken, L.; Maegele, M.; Samii, A.; van Griensven, M. // Mediators of Inflammation;2012, Vol. 2012, p1 

    Objective. Despite broad research in neurotrauma and shock, little is known on systemic inflammatory effects of the clinically most relevant combined polytrauma. Experimental investigation in an animal model may provide relevant insight for therapeutic strategies. We describe the effects of a...

    Impaired fracture healing can occur in severely injured patients with hemorrhagic shock due to decreased soft tissue perfusion after trauma. We investigated the effects of fracture healing in a standardized pressure controlled hemorrhagic shock model in mice, to test the hypothesis that bleeding...

    Immunoinflammatory responses after shock and major trauma are characterized by an early hyperinflammatory response and later by compensatory anti-inflammatory host mediator production. This late phase is associated with depressed immune function that has been causally linked with post-traumatic...
