Superficial Ballistic Trauma and Subjective Pain Experienced during Force-on-Force Training and the Observed Recovery Pattern.

Mil Med 2019 Apr 5. Epub 2019 Apr 5.

Naval Medical Research Unit Dayton, 2624 Q Street, Area B, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, OH 45433-7955.

Introduction: Military training involves preparing individuals for combat, yet applying the stressors of combat while maintaining a safe training environment is exceedingly difficult. One method to induce significant anxiety while still maintaining reasonable safety has been to utilize simulated ammunition. These rounds enable force-on-force training with reasonable stress and firing accuracy while also readily allowing participants to realize they have been shot. Read More

Isolated intraparenchymal tension pneumocephalus.

Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2018 Oct 21;31(4):537-538. Epub 2018 Sep 21.

Department of Radiology, Yale New Haven Health Bridgeport HospitalBridgeportConnecticut.

Pneumocephalus after trauma is not uncommon but rarely develops into tension pneumocephalus. Delayed-onset spontaneous tension pneumocephalus is rare, and delayed-onset isolated intraparenchymal/intracerebral tension pneumocephalus is even more so. We describe a 35-year-old man who presented with urinary incontinence, left eye vision loss, and nasal discharge/cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea 2 months after recovering from bifrontal hemorrhagic contusions following a road traffic accident.

MRI of ankle sprain: the association between joint effusion and structural injury severity in a large cohort of athletes.

Eur Radiol 2019 Apr 1. Epub 2019 Apr 1.

Department of Radiology, Quantitative Imaging Center, Boston University School of Medicine, Boston, MA, USA.

Objective: To test the hypothesis if presence and amount of effusion in the tibiotalar and talocalcaneal joints are associated with an increased risk for severe structural injury in ankle sprains.

Methods: A total of 261 athletes sustaining acute ankle sprains were assessed on MRI for the presence and the amount of joint effusion in the tibiotalar and talocalcaneal joints, as well as for ligamentous and osteochondral injury. Specific patterns of injury severity were defined based on lateral collateral ligament, syndesmotic, and talar osteochondral involvement. Read More

Factors associated with mortality in acute subdural hematoma: Is decompressive craniectomy effective?

Ulus Travma Acil Cerrahi Derg 2019 Mar;25(2):147-153

Department of Neurosurgery, University of Health Sciences, Şişli Hamidiye Etfal Training and Research Hospital, İstanbul-Turkey.

Background: Despite rapid diagnosis and aggressive neurosurgical intervention, acute subdural hematoma (ASDH) is a severe type of head injury that can result in high morbidity and mortality. Although surgical procedures, such as craniotomy and decompressive craniectomy (DC), can be effective, the preferred approach for treating an ASDH remains controversial. The aim of this report was to evaluate factors associated with mortality in patients with ASDH and determinants of outcome in those with ASDH who underwent DC. Read More

In infants, traumatic surface contusions of the brain are rare but subcortical clefts or cysts, variously labelled "contusional tears", "contusional clefts", "cortical tears" or "parenchymal lacerations" have been ascribed to trauma, and are even said to be characteristic of shaking and abuse. We describe the pathology of subcortical clefts or haemorrhages in seven infants. In none were the axonal swellings characteristic of traumatic axonal injury seen in relation to the clefts.

Importance: Since September 2017, standing electric scooters have proliferated rapidly as an inexpensive, easy mode of transportation. Although there are regulations for safe riding established by both electric scooter companies and local governments, public common use practices and the incidence and types of injuries associated with these standing electric scooters are unknown.

Objective: To characterize injuries associated with standing electric scooter use, the clinical outcomes of injured patients, and common use practices in the first US metropolitan area to experience adoption of this technology. Read More

The epidemiology of wrist and hand injury in two hospitals in Jerusalem: substantial differences between population subgroups.

Isr J Health Policy Res 2019 Jan 9;8(1). Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Braun School of Public Health and Community Medicine, Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel.

Background: Wrist and hand injuries are common and constitute a major economic burden. General injury prevention programs have failed to demonstrate a decrease in injury rates. We hypothesized that there are differences in injury patterns in culturally diverse subpopulations of a metropolitan area treated within the same medical system, which may partly explain the difficulties associated with injury prevention.

Patterned Bruises From Abusive Squeezing.

Pediatr Emerg Care 2019 Jan 7. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

University of Connecticut School of Medicine, Connecticut Children's Medical Center, Hartford, CT.

Bruising is the most common presentation of child physical abuse. Many patterns of abusive bruising result in positive or negative imprints of the implement used (eg, fingertips in "grab mark" contusions or hand in slap injury). However, bruising may also form along the lines of greatest anatomical stress (eg, gluteal cleft or pinna bruising). Read More

Cervical spinal contusion alters Na-K-2Cl- and K-Cl- cation-chloride cotransporter expression in phrenic motor neurons.

Respir Physiol Neurobiol 2019 03 24;261:15-23. Epub 2018 Dec 24.

Department of Physical Therapy, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611 USA; Center for Respiratory Research and Rehabilitation, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611 USA. Electronic address:

Spinal chloride-dependent synaptic inhibition is critical in regulating breathing and requires neuronal chloride gradients established by cation-chloride cotransporters Na-K-2Cl (NKCC1) and K-Cl (KCC2). Spinal transection disrupts NKCC1/KCC2 balance, diminishing chloride gradients in neurons below injury, contributing to spasticity and chronic pain. It is not known if similar disruptions in NKCC1/KCC2 balance occur in respiratory motor neurons after incomplete cervical contusion (C2SC). Read More

Blood Coagul Fibrinolysis 2019 Jan;30(1):24-28

Department of Hematology and Blood Transfusion, School of Allied Medicine, Iran University of Medical Sciences.

: Congenital factor VII (FVII) deficiency is a rare bleeding disorder with an estimated prevalence of 1 per 500 000 in the general population. On-demand replacement therapy is the main therapeutic choice in patients with congenital FVII deficiency. Inhibitor formation against exogenous FVII is very rare and can cause challenges in the management of the disorder. Read More

Working Group Psychiatric Epidemiology, Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Technical University of Munich (TUM), Klinikum rechts der Isar, Munich, Germany:; Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Mannheim, Mannheim, Germany.

Background: The care of elderly patients with comorbid dementia poses an increasing challenge in the acute inpatient setting, yet there remains a lack of representative studies on the prevalence and distribution of dementia in general hospitals.

Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional study of patients aged 65 and older in randomly selected general hospitals in southern Germany. Patients were excluded if they were in an intensive care unit or isolation unit or if they were on specialized wards for psychiatry, neurology, or geriatric medicine. Read More

J Small Anim Pract 2019 Mar 13;60(3):173-182. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Lodi's ICU and Sub ICU Head, ASST Lodi 26900, Italy.

Objective: To describe the technique and findings of the 'veterinary focused assessment with sonography for trauma-airway, breathing, circulation, disability and exposure' protocol in dogs suffering from trauma.
