Mast Cells Drive Systemic Inflammation and Compromised Bone Repair After Trauma.

Front Immunol 2022 26;13:883707. Epub 2022 Apr 26.

Institute of Orthopedic Research and Biomechanics, Trauma Research Center Ulm (ZTF), Ulm University Medical Center, Ulm, Germany.

There is evidence that mast cells contribute to inflammation induced by hemorrhagic shock, severe tissue injury or sepsis. Mast cells are highly responsive to alarm signals generated after trauma, and release many inflammatory mediators including interleukin-6, a key mediator of posttraumatic inflammation. An overwhelming posttraumatic inflammation causes compromised bone healing; however, the underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms are poorly understood. Read More

J Trauma Acute Care Surg 2022 May 12. Epub 2022 May 12.

Background: Partial resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) has shown promise as a method to extend REBOA, but there lacks a standard definition of the technique. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships between distal and proximal mean arterial blood pressure (MAP) and distal aortic flow past a REBOA catheter. We hypothesize that a relationship between distal aortic flow and distal MAP in Zone 1 partial REBOA (pREBOA) is conserved and that there is no apparent relationship between aortic flow and proximal MAP.
