Use of Thromboelastography in the Evaluation and Management of Patients With Traumatic Brain Injury: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

Jeremy W Cannon, João D Dias, Monisha A Kumar, Mark Walsh, Scott G Thomas, Bryan A Cotton, James M Schuster, Susan L Evans, Martin A Schreiber, Elisabeth H Adam, Kai Zacharowski, Jan Hartmann, Herbert Schöchl, Lewis J Kaplan,

Traumatic brain injury is associated with coagulopathy that increases mortality risk. Viscoelastic hemostatic assays such as thromboelastography (Haemonetics SA, Signy, Switzerland) provide rapid coagulopathy assessment and may be particularly useful for goal-directed treatment of traumatic brain injury patients. We conducted a systematic review to assess thromboelastography in the evaluation and ... Read more >>

Lorenzo Cobianchi, Francesca Dal Mas, Maurizio Massaro, Paola Fugazzola, Federico Coccolini, Yoram Kluger, Ari Leppäniemi, Ernest E Moore, Massimo Sartelli, Peter Angelos, Luca Ansaloni, ,

<h4>Background</h4>Emergency surgery represents a unique context. Trauma teams are often multidisciplinary and need to operate under extreme stress and time constraints, sometimes with no awareness of the trauma's causes or the patient's personal and clinical information. In this perspective, the dynamics of how trauma teams function is fundamental to ensuring ... Read more >>

Post-traumatic brain injury antithrombin III recovers Morris water maze cognitive performance, improving cued and spatial learning.

Mohamed ElSaadani, Syed M Ahmed, Christina Jacovides, Alfonso Lopez, Victoria E Johnson, Lewis J Kaplan, Douglas H Smith, Jose L Pascual,

<h4>Background</h4>Neuroinflammation and cerebral edema development following severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) affect subsequent cognitive recovery. Independent of its anticoagulant effects, antithrombin III (AT-III) has been shown to block neurovascular inflammation after severe TBI, reduce cerebral endothelial-leukocyte interactions, and decrease blood-brain barrier permeability. We hypothesized that AT-III administration after TBI would ... Read more >>

Prolonged mechanical rib separation is a key element to prevent thoracic compartment syndrome in penetrating chest trauma: A case report.

Emily J MacKay, Ng T Niu, Jeremy W Cannon, Lewis J Kaplan, José L Pascual,

Penetrating cardiac injury in trauma patients is highly morbid. Most cases do not survive long enough to manifest the severe physiologic consequences of massive blood product resuscitation, namely, thoracic compartment syndrome and right ventricular (RV) failure. This case exhibits a thoracic compartment syndrome and RV failure so severe that the ... Read more >>

Zaffer Qasim, Frank K Butler, John B Holcomb, Joseph G Kotora, Brian J Eastridge, Karim Brohi, Thomas M Scalea, C William Schwab, Brendon Drew, Jennifer Gurney, Jan O Jansen, Lewis J Kaplan, Matthew J Martin, Todd E Rasmussen, Stacy A Shackelford, Eric A Bank, Darren Braude, Megan Brenner, Francis X Guyette, Bellal Joseph, William R Hinckley, Jason L Sperry, Juan Duchesne,

<h4>Abstract</h4>Hemorrhage, and particularly noncompressible torso hemorrhage (NCTH) remains a leading cause of potentially preventable prehospital death from trauma in the United States and globally. A subset of severely-injured patients either die in the field or develop irreversible hemorrhagic shock before they can receive hospital definitive care, resulting in poor outcomes. ... Read more >>

Antithrombin III ameliorates post-traumatic brain injury cerebral leukocyte mobilization enhancing recovery of blood brain barrier integrity.

Mohamed ElSaadani, Syed M Ahmed, Christina Jacovides, Alfonso Lopez, Victoria E Johnson, Lewis J Kaplan, C William Schwab, Douglas H Smith, Jose L Pascual,

<h4>Background</h4>Acute traumatic coagulopathy often accompanies traumatic brain injury (TBI) and may impair cognitive recovery. Antithrombin III (AT-III) reduces the hypercoagulability of TBI. Antithrombin III and heparinoids such as enoxaparin (ENX) demonstrate potent anti-inflammatory activity, reducing organ injury and modulating leukocyte (LEU) activation, independent of their anticoagulant effect. It is unknown ... Read more >>
