Abstract

Erratum

In the June 2020 issue of , in the article by Kim et al., “Evaluation and management of blunt cerebrovascular injury: A practice management guideline from the Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma”, a few sentences were accidentally removed in the first and second paragraphs. The end of the first paragraph and beginning of the second paragraph should read as follows:

The development of screening criteria (Table 1) and an injury grading scale (Table 2) has been central to our ability to detect, accurately T2 describe, prognosticate, and treat BCVIs.

Early diagnosis and treatment are critical to minimize the morbidity and mortality associated with BCVIs. One of the most feared complications is a stroke, which may occur in up to 20% of patients, most commonly in the early (<72 hours) postinjury period.

This has been corrected in the online files.

The publisher apologizes for these errors.
