Porcine spleen as a model organ for blunt injury impact tests: An experimental and histological study.

Anat Histol Embryol 2022 Jun 25. Epub 2022 Jun 25.

European Centre of Excellence NTIS, Faculty of Applied Sciences, University of West Bohemia, Pilsen, Czech Republic.

The spleen is a large and highly vascularized secondary lymphatic organ. Spleen injuries are among the most frequent trauma-related injuries in the abdominal region. The aims of the study were to assess the volume fractions of the main splenic tissue components (red pulp, white pulp, trabeculae and reticular fibres) and to determine the severity of splenic injury due to the experimental impact test.

Traumatic gastric laceration with injury of splenic and celiac vessel following intentional self-harm by crashing of motor vehicle: A case report.

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2022 Jun 24;78:103827. Epub 2022 May 24.

Kathmandu University School of Medical Sciences, Dhulikhel Hospital, Dhulikhel, 45210, Nepal.

Intra-abdominal injury due to blunt trauma accounts for 5-10% of all traumatic cases. It usually occurs secondary to motor vehicle collision, pedestrian injury, and falls. Typically these result in injury to solid abdominal organs-liver and spleen, hollow visceral organs, and rarely the abdominal vasculature. Read More

Tim-3 Blockade Decreases the Apoptosis of CD8 T Cells and Reduces the Severity of Sepsis in Mice.

J Surg Res 2022 Jun 15;279:8-16. Epub 2022 Jun 15.

Faculty of Anesthesiology, Changhai Hospital, Naval Medical University, Shanghai, China. Electronic address:

Introduction: The T cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain 3 (Tim-3) mediated immunosuppressive pathway has been shown to play an essential role in the development of sepsis. However, the influence of Tim-3 blockade during sepsis and the possible effects on T cells' function remains largely unknown. Our study investigates the role of Tim-3 in cecal ligation and puncture (CLP)-induced sepsis in mice. Read More

Discreet Values of Shock Index Pediatric Age-Adjusted (SIPA) to Predict Intervention in Children With Blunt Organ Injuries.

J Surg Res 2022 Jun 15;279:17-24. Epub 2022 Jun 15.

Division of Pediatric Surgery, Children's Hospital Colorado, Aurora, Colorado; Department of Surgery, University of Colorado School of Medicine, Aurora, Colorado; Department of Surgery, Denver Health Medical Center, Denver, Colorado.

Introduction: Elevated shock index pediatric age-adjusted (SIPA) has been shown to be associated with the need for both blood transfusion and intervention in pediatric patients with blunt liver and spleen injuries (BLSI). SIPA has traditionally been used as a binary value, which can be classified as elevated or normal, and this study aimed to assess if discreet values above SIPA cutoffs are associated with an increased probability of blood transfusion and failure of nonoperative management (NOM) in bluntly injured children.

Materials And Methods: Children aged 1-18 y with any BLSI admitted to a Level-1 pediatric trauma center between 2009 and 2020 were analyzed. Read More

Inferring Tissue-Specific, TLR4-Dependent Type 17 Immune Interactions in Experimental Trauma/Hemorrhagic Shock and Resuscitation Using Computational Modeling.

Front Immunol 2022 19;13:908618. Epub 2022 May 19.

Department of Surgery, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, United States.

Trauma/hemorrhagic shock followed by resuscitation (T/HS-R) results in multi-system inflammation and organ dysfunction, in part driven by binding of damage-associated molecular pattern molecules to Toll-like Receptor 4 (TLR4). We carried out experimental T/HS-R (pseudo-fracture plus 2 h of shock followed by 0-22 h of resuscitation) in C57BL/6 (wild type [WT]) and TLR4-null (TLR4) mice, and then defined the dynamics of 20 protein-level inflammatory mediators in the heart, gut, lung, liver, spleen, kidney, and systemic circulation. Cross-correlation and Principal Component Analysis (PCA) on data from the 7 tissues sampled suggested that TLR4 samples express multiple inflammatory mediators in a small subset of tissue compartments as compared to the WT samples, in which many inflammatory mediators were localized non-specifically to nearly all compartments.

Liver Trauma: Until When We Have to Delay Surgery? A Review.

Life (Basel) 2022 May 6;12(5). Epub 2022 May 6.

General, Emergency and Transplant Surgery Department, ASST-Settelaghi and University of Insubria, 21100 Varese, Italy.

Liver involvement after abdominal blunt trauma must be expected, and in up to 30% of cases, spleen, kidney, and pancreas injuries may coexist. Whenever hemodynamics conditions do not contraindicate the overcoming of the ancient dogma according to which exploratory laparotomy should be performed after every major abdominal trauma, a CT scan has to clarify the liver lesions so as to determine the optimal management strategy. Except for complete vascular avulsion, no liver trauma grade precludes nonoperative management. Read More

Preclinical evaluation of early multi-organ toxicity induced by liposomal doxorubicin using Ga-citrate.

Nanotoxicology 2022 Mar 15;16(2):247-264. Epub 2022 May 15.

Laboratorio de Investigación en Teranóstica, Facultad de Medicina, Universidad Autónoma del Estado de México, Toluca, Mexico.

Although liposomal doxorubicin (LPD) is widely used for cancer treatment, knowledge concerning the toxicity induced by this drug in healthy organs and tissues is limited. LPD-induced toxicity studies relative to free doxorubicin (DOX) have focused on cardiotoxicity in tumor-bearing animals. On the other hand, the results on DOX-induced cardiotoxicity depending on gender are controversial. Read More

C-terminal mini-PEGylation of a marine peptide N6 had potent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties against Escherichia coli and Salmonella strains in vitro and in vivo.

BMC Microbiol 2022 May 12;22(1):128. Epub 2022 May 12.

Gene Engineering Laboratory, Feed Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Haidian District, 12 Zhongguancun Nandajie St, Beijing, 100081, People's Republic of China.

Background: Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli and Salmonella pullorum are two important groups of zoonotic pathogens. At present, the treatment of intestinal pathogenic bacteria infection mainly relies on antibiotics, which directly inhibit or kill the pathogenic bacteria. However, due to long-term irrational, excessive use or abuse, bacteria have developed different degrees of drug resistance. Read More

Pathological and ATR-FTIR spectral changes of delayed splenic rupture and medical significance.

Spectrochim Acta A Mol Biomol Spectrosc 2022 Oct 21;278:121286. Epub 2022 Apr 21.

Department of Forensic Pathology, College of Forensic Medicine, Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi'an, Shaanxi 710061, China. Electronic address:

Traumatic delayed splenic rupture often follows by a "latent period" without typical symptoms after injury. During this period, though there are no obvious symptoms, the injury is still present and changing. In this study, we constructed an SD rat model of delayed splenic rupture; evaluated the model by HE staining, Perl's staining, Masson trichrome staining and immunohistochemical staining; observed the pathological changes of spleen tissue in delayed splenic rupture at different times after splenic injury; we found that pathological change of injured tissues were different from non-injured, and has phases-change patterns, it can be roughly divided into three phases: 2-7 d, 10-14 d, and 18-28.

Department of Endocrinology & Diabetes, Alfred Hospital, Melbourne, Australia.

Summary: Adrenal gland haemorrhage is an uncommon, yet likely under-diagnosed complication of high-impact trauma, such as motor vehicle accidents (MVA). It usually occurs with multi-trauma and is associated with additional injuries to the ribs, liver, kidney, spleen and vertebrae. Trauma cases with resultant adrenal gland injury have higher mortality rates. Read More
