Dr. Gene Moore’s highlights for the March 2015 issue include: The first paper by Dr. John Sharpe et al from the University of Tennessee Memphis is based on their long-term interest in ventilator-associated pneumonia. The next paper, also an AAST presentation, is by Dr. Laura Godat and colleagues from the University of California at San Diego who queried the California Statewide Hospital Discharge Database to determine the time course of VTE in high-risk trauma patients. In a related paper, Dr. Casey Allen and associates from the University of Miami review their experience with major venous injuries following penetrating trauma, 74% of these were gunshot wounds, to determine the relative risk of pulmonary embolus with repair versus ligation. The final paper that generated considerable interest was a large animal study by Dr. Mohamad Tiba and colleagues from the University of Michigan who introduced a modified pelvic binder for hemostasis.
