The lead paper presented at the AAST, is authored by Dr. Laura Moore from UT Houston along with colleagues from the Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. In a related paper, presented at EAST, Dr. Sundeep Guliani et al from Virginia Commonwealth University demonstrated the reliability of ultrasound guided central aortic wire placement, thus, theoretically avoiding, the need for fluoroscopy for REBOA placement. Dr. David Notrica and colleagues from ATOMAC (which apparently is an abbreviation for Arizona-Texas-Oklahoma-Memphis-Arkansas Consortium), a group of ACS verified Level I pediatric trauma centers, reviewed the relevant literature with respective grading their recommendations for organ injuries ATOMAC proposed practice management guideline based on hemodynamic status rather than organ injury score formally employed in the American Pediatric Surgery Association guidelines that have been considered the standard for over two decades. Dr. Carl Wahlgren and Dr. Bjorn Kagsterman from the Karolinski Institute in Stockholm provide a review of pediatric vascular injuries managed in Sweden over the past 25 years.
