Pelvic fractures represent 5% of all traumatic fractures and 30% are isolated pelvic fractures. Pelvic fractures are found in 10 to 20% of severe trauma patients and their presence is highly correlate...
Early coagulopathy in isolated severe traumatic brain injury occurs despite lack of severe bleeding, shock, and fluid administration. We aimed to correlate coagulation activation/inhibition, thrombin ...
Early post-trauma hyperglycemia (EPTH) is correlated with later adverse outcomes including acute kidney injury (AKI). We have shown that following orthopedic trauma, obese Zucker rats (OZ) exhibit EPT...
Rapid risk-stratification of patients with acute traumatic brain injury (TBI) would inform management decisions and prognostication. The objective of this serum biomarker study (BIO-ProTECT) was to te...
The use of explosives by terrorists, or during armed conflict, remains a major global threat. Increasingly, these events occur in the civilian domain, and can potentially lead to injury and loss of li...
The management of posterior urethral disruption secondary to blunt pelvic injury remains controversial. While many groups have recommended early realignment of urethral distraction injurie...
We aimed to evaluate the effect of early pelvic binder use in emergency management of suspected pelvic trauma, compared with the conventional stepwise approach.
Severe head injury is associated with airway compromise and poor respiratory effort. In Mulago Hospital intubation is the mainstay intervention and then patients are subjected to the wait ...
Induction of hypothermia to < 35˚C by < 2.5 hours after severe traumatic brain injury, reaching 33˚C by 4 hours after injury and maintained for 48 hours in patients aged 16-45 will resul...
Early fixation of unstable fractures of the femur, pelvis, and acetabulum reduces some complication rates. However, in patients with multiple injuries, the optimal treatment of skeletal tr...
Injury, weakening, or PROLAPSE of the pelvic muscles, surrounding connective tissues or ligaments (PELVIC FLOOR).
A nonspecific term used to describe transient alterations or loss of consciousness following closed head injuries. The duration of UNCONSCIOUSNESS generally lasts a few seconds, but may persist for several hours. Concussions may be classified as mild, intermediate, and severe. Prolonged periods of unconsciousness (often defined as greater than 6 hours in duration) may be referred to as post-traumatic coma (COMA, POST-HEAD INJURY). (From Rowland, Merritt's Textbook of Neurology, 9th ed, p418)
Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.
Prolonged unconsciousness from which the individual cannot be aroused, associated with traumatic injuries to the BRAIN. This may be defined as unconsciousness persisting for 6 hours or longer. Coma results from injury to both cerebral hemispheres or the RETICULAR FORMATION of the BRAIN STEM. Contributing mechanisms include DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY and BRAIN EDEMA.

An erratum notice is variously cited as Errata or Corrigenda.
Pain is a feeling (sharp or dull) triggered in the nervous system which can be transient or constant. Pain can be specific to one area of the body eg back, abdomen or chest or more general all over the body eg muscles ache from the flu. Without pain ...
