Gunshot wounds and blast injuries to the upper limbs produce complex wounds requiring management by multiple surgical specialities.
Haemorrhage is the leading cause of death on the battlefield. Seventy percent of injuries are due to explosive mechanisms. Anecdotally, these patients have had poorer outcomes when compared to those w...
Non-Cartesian trajectories are advantageous in the collection and reconstruction of dynamic MR images. Like many other fast imaging methods, the reconstruction technique k-t BLAST has been extended to...
A striking observation among veterans returning from the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan has been the co-occurrence of blast-related mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) and post-traumatic stre...
Self-inflicted gunshot wounds are a common cause of firearm-related deaths. The appearance and location of the entry wound, other concomitant findings at autopsy, and correlation with the scene and ci...
Brain injury from explosive blast is a prominent feature of contemporary combat. Although protective armor and effective acute medical intervention allows soldiers to survive blast events,...
The incidence of central auditory dysfunction in war fighters who are exposed to high-explosive blasts while serving in combat have not been clearly determined. The objectives of this stud...
This study will compare the medications fluoxetine (Prozac®) and divalproex (Depakote®) for the treatment of aggressive behavior in individuals with Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED)...
To monitor changes in indicators of red cell damage such as extracellular hemoglobin, potassium (K-ABL), and lactate dehydrogenase (LD) post blast exposure.
This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to evaluate AVP-786 for the treatment of Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED).
Substances that are energetically unstable and can produce a sudden expansion of the material, called an explosion, which is accompanied by heat, pressure and noise. Other things which have been described as explosive that are not included here are explosive action of laser heating, human performance, sudden epidemiological outbreaks, or fast cell growth.
Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.
A sudden loss of pressure in a pressurized cabin, cockpit, or the like, so rapid as to be explosive. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 5th ed)
Head injuries which feature compromise of the skull and dura mater. These may result from gunshot wounds (WOUNDS, GUNSHOT), stab wounds (WOUNDS, STAB), and other forms of trauma.
Injuries resulting when a person is struck by particles impelled with violent force from an explosion. Blast causes pulmonary concussion and hemorrhage, laceration of other thoracic and abdominal viscera, ruptured ear drums, and minor effects in the central nervous system. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
