Trauma-Induced Coagulopathy: The Past, Present, and Future.

Summary of "Trauma-Induced Coagulopathy: The Past, Present, and Future."

Trauma remains a leading cause of death worldwide, and most early preventable deaths in both the civilian and military settings are due to uncontrolled hemorrhage, despite paradigm advances in modern trauma care. Combined tissue injury and shock result in hemostatic failure, which has been identified as a multi-dimensional molecular, physiologic, and clinical disorder termed trauma-induced coagulopathy (TIC). Understanding the biology of TIC is of utmost importance as it is often responsible for uncontrolled bleeding, organ failure, thromboembolic complications, and death. Investigations have exposed that TIC is characterized by multiple phenotypes of impaired hemostasis due to altered biology in clot formation and breakdown. These coagulopathies are attributable to tissue injury and shock and encompass underlying endothelial, immune, and inflammatory perturbations. Despite the recognition and identification multiple mechanisms and mediators of TIC and the development of targeted treatments, the mortality rates and associated morbidities due to hemorrhage after injury remain high. The purpose of this review is to examine the past and present understanding of the multiple distinct but highly integrated pathways implicated in TIC to highlight the current knowledge gaps and future needs in this evolving field, aimed at reducing morbidity and mortality after injury.

Injuries to the optic nerve induced by a trauma to the face or head. These may occur with closed or penetrating injuries. Relatively minor compression of the superior aspect of orbit may also result in trauma to the optic nerve. Clinical manifestations may include visual loss, PAPILLEDEMA, and an afferent pupillary defect.
