<h4>Background</h4>Efforts to determine the suitability of low-grade pancreatic injuries for nonoperative management have been hindered by the inaccuracy of older computed tomography (CT) technology for detecting pancreatic injury (PI). This retrospective, multicenter American Association for the Surgery of Trauma-sponsored trial examined the sensitivity of newer 16- and 64-multidetector CT (MDCT) ... Read more >>

Multiple organ failure in trauma patients.

Rodney M Durham, J J Moran, John E Mazuski, Marc J Shapiro, Arthur E Baue, Lewis M Flint,

<h4>Summary</h4>BACKGROUND As care of the critically ill patient has improved and definitions of organ failure have changed, it has been observed that the incidence of organ failure and the mortality associated with organ failure appear to be decreasing. In addition, many early studies included large heterogeneous populations of both medical ... Read more >>

The role of cardiac morbidity in short- and long-term mortality in injured older patients who survive initial resuscitation.

Scott F Gallagher, Brian Williams, Cathie Gomez, Christine DesJardins, Sherry Swan, Rodney M Durham, Lewis M Flint,

BACKGROUND:Elderly patients are an increasingly larger group of injured trauma care patients. Comorbidities influence outcome. Little is known of short- and long-term mortality in the elderly who survive initial resuscitation. METHODS:Short- and long-term mortality was retrospectively analyzed in 363 consecutively injured patients (Injury severity score >15) surviving more than 3 ... Read more >>

Routine prophylactic vena cava filtration is not indicated after acute spinal cord injury.

Robert A Maxwell, Marco Chavarria-Aguilar, William T Cockerham, Patricia L Lewis, Donald E Barker, Rodney M Durham, David L Ciraulo, Charles M Richart,

<h4>Background</h4>Acute spinal cord injury (SCI) is a devastating problem, with over 10,000 new cases annually. Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a well-recognized risk in SCI patients, although no clear recommendations for prophylaxis exist. We therefore evaluated whether routine placement of prophylactic inferior vena cava filters is indicated in SCI patients.<h4>Methods</h4>The trauma ... Read more >>
