Division of Acute Care Surgery, LAC+USC Medical Center, University of Southern California, 2051 Marengo Street, Inpatient Tower (C), C5L100, Los Angeles, CA, 90033, USA.

Background: In patients undergoing resuscitative thoracotomy (RT) for traumatic cardiac arrest, focused assessment with sonography for trauma (FAST) is often used to look for intraperitoneal fluid. These findings can help determine whether abdominal exploration is warranted once return of spontaneous circulation is achieved; however, the diagnostic accuracy of FAST in this clinical scenario has yet to be evaluated. The purpose of this study was to assess the performance of FAST in identifying intra-abdominal hemorrhage following RT. Read More

Anthropometrics of Estonian children in relation to family disruption: Thrifty phenotype and Trivers-Willard effects.

Evol Med Public Health 2021 20;9(1):276-286. Epub 2021 Jul 20.

Department of Zoology, University of Tartu, Vanemuise 46, Tartu 51014, Estonia.

The Trivers-Willard hypothesis (TWH) predicts that boys are more vulnerable in the case of resource limitation than girls. Both hypotheses were tested in children from disrupted families, differing in the extent of deprivation/adversities imposed on them. Read More
