Epidemiology, Management, and Outcomes of Accidental Hypothermia: A Multicenter Study of Regional Care.

Jessica M Rasmussen, Thomas H Cogbill, Andrew J Borgert, Susan M Frankki, Kara J Kallies, Jennifer C Roberts, Daniel C Cullinane, Colleen Renier, Theo Woehrle, Steven D Eyer, Savo Bou Zein Eddine, Marshall Beckman, Christine J Waller,

<h4>Background</h4>Hypothermia is an uncommon, potentially life-threatening condition. We hypothesized (1) advanced rewarming techniques were more frequent with increased hypothermia severity, (2) active rewarming is increasingly performed with smaller intravascular catheters and decreased cardiopulmonary bypass, and (3) mortality was associated with age, hypothermia severity, and type.<h4>Methods</h4>Trauma patients with temperatures <35°C at ...

The role of palliative care in acute trauma: When is it appropriate?

Brendon M Esquibel, Christine J Waller, Andrew J Borgert, Kara J Kallies, Thomas D Harter, Thomas H Cogbill,

<h4>Introduction</h4>We hypothesized that trauma providers are reticent to consider palliative measures in acute trauma care.<h4>Methods</h4>An electronic survey based on four patient scenarios with identical vital signs and serious blunt injuries, but differing ages and frailty scores was sent to WTA and EAST members.<h4>Results</h4>509 (24%) providers completed the survey. Providers supported ... Read more >>

Impact of Advance Directives on Outcomes and Charges in Elderly Trauma Patients.

Laura A Hill, Christine J Waller, Andrew J Borgert, Kara J Kallies, Thomas H Cogbill,

<b><i>Background:</i></b> As the number of geriatric trauma patients rises, end-of-life planning is of increased importance. A community-wide initiative to increase advance care planning was undertaken in the 1990s, resulting in a high rate (85%) of completed advance directives (ADs). <b><i>Objectives:</i></b> To assess the impact of ADs on quality measures of ...

Delayed splenic hemorrhage: Myth or mystery? A Western Trauma Association multicenter study.

Laura Harmon, Ronald Bilow, Kathirkama Shanmuganathan, Margret Lauerman, S Rob Todd, Justin Cardenas, Christine E Haugen, Roxie Albrecht, Stephen Pittman, Mitchell Cohen, Krista Kaups, Rachel Dirks, Clay Cothren Burlew, Charles J Fox, Jorge Con, Kenji Inaba, Paul B Harrison, Gina M Berg, Christine J Waller, Kara J Kallies, Rosemary Ann Kozar,

<h4>Background</h4>Multi-detector computed tomography imaging is now the reference standard for identifying solid organ injuries, with a high sensitivity and specificity. However, delayed splenic hemorrhage (DSH), defined as no identified injury to the spleen on the index scan but delayed bleeding from a splenic injury, has been reported. We hypothesized that ...

Clay Cothren Burlew, Joshua J Sumislawski, Charles D Behnfield, Michelle K McNutt, James McCarthy, John P Sharpe, Martin A Croce, Miklosh Bala, Jeffry Kashuk, M Chance Spalding, Paul R Beery, Scott John, Darren J Hunt, Laura Harmon, Deborah M Stein, Rachael Callcut, Chris Wybourn, Jason Sperry, Vincent Anto, Julie Dunn, Jacob P Veith, Carlos V R Brown, Amanda Celii, Tyler L Zander, Raul Coimbra, Allison E Berndtson, Tovah Z Moss, Ajai K Malhotra, Joshua P Hazelton, Kimberly Linden, Michaela West, Hasan B Alam, Aaron M Williams, Jennie Kim, Kenji Inaba, Steve Moulton, Young Mee Choi, Harry L Warren, Bryan Collier, Chad G Ball, Stephanie Savage, Jennifer L Hartwell, Daniel C Cullinane, Martin D Zielinski, Mohamed D Ray-Zack, Bryan C Morse, Peter Rhee, Edmund J Rutherford, Pascal Udekwu, Cassandra Reynolds, Eric Toschlog, Steve Gondek, Tammy Ju, James M Haan, Kelly L Lightwine, Narong Kulvatunyou, Brian Coates, Ahmed F Khouqeer, S Rob Todd, Ben Zarzaur, Christine J Waller, Kara J Kallies, Todd Neideen, Savo Bou Zein Eddine, Kimberly A Peck, Casey E Dunne, Kristina Kramer, Faran Bokhari, Tejveer S Dhillon, Joseph M Galante, Mitchell J Cohen,

BACKGROUND:Screening for blunt cerebrovascular injuries (BCVIs) in asymptomatic high-risk patients has become routine. To date, the length of this asymptomatic period has not been defined. Determining the time to stroke could impact therapy including earlier initiation of antithrombotics in multiply injured patients. The purpose of this study was to determine ... Read more >>

Contemporary management of subclavian and axillary artery injuries-A Western Trauma Association multicenter review.

Christine J Waller, Thomas H Cogbill, Kara J Kallies, Luis D Ramirez, Justin M Cardenas, S Rob Todd, Kayla J Chapman, Marshall A Beckman, Jason L Sperry, Vincent P Anto, Evert A Eriksson, Stuart M Leon, Rahul J Anand, Maura Pearlstein, Lisa Capano-Wehrle, Clay Cothren Burlew, Charles J Fox, Daniel C Cullinane, Jennifer C Roberts, Paul B Harrison, Gina M Berg, James M Haan, Kelly Lightwine,

<h4>Background</h4>Subclavian and axillary artery injuries are uncommon. In addition to many open vascular repairs, endovascular techniques are used for definitive repair or vascular control of these anatomically challenging injuries. The aim of this study was to determine the relative roles of endovascular and open techniques in the management of subclavian ... Read more >>

An Unusual Subcutaneous Mass in an Otherwise Healthy Patient: A Case Report of Localized Histoplasmosis Diagnosed on Excisional Biopsy.

Brendon M Esquibel, Christine J Waller, William A Agger,

Patients are commonly referred to general surgery clinics for evaluation of soft-tissue masses of the trunk and extremities. The primary goal of surgical referral is to confirm the presence of a mass, to assess the need for additional imaging and/or testing, and to gauge amenability to surgical biopsy, whether incisional ...

Stress cardiomyopathy with an "inverse" takotsubo pattern in a patient with acute aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage.

Christine J Waller, Byron Vandenberg, David Hasan, Avinash B Kumar,

<h4>Background</h4>Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) induced myocardial dysfunction (often labeled neurogenic stunned myocardium) encompasses a spectrum of clinical presentations ranging from an isolated elevation of cardiac enzymes to cardiogenic shock.<h4>Objective</h4>We describe a case of stress cardiomyopathy in a patient following acute aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage that showed an "inverse" or reverse takotsubo pattern ...

Intraoperative cystoscopic stent placement in robot-assisted pyeloplasty: a novel and efficient technique.

Robert O Wayment, Christine J Waller, Brandan A Kramer, Bradley F Schwartz,

<h4>Introduction</h4>Robot-assisted pyeloplasty (RAP) is a minimally invasive approach for repair of ureteropelvic junction obstruction. Ureteral stent placement is a necessary step that may necessitate additional procedures and/or radiation exposure for placement and confirmation of stent location. These may prolong operative times and increase morbidity.<h4>Patients and methods</h4>Unique patient positioning and draping ... Read more >>
