The lead article is the presidential address by Dr. Richard Falcone from the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. Dr. Falcone’s central theme was the critical role of teamwork and team communication in caring for the injured child. The ensuing paper is the keynote lecture by Dr. Joe Tepas from the University of Florida at Jacksonville. Dr. Tepas provides an informative overview of the past, present, and future of pediatric trauma surgery. The next paper is by Dr. Sheila Hanson and colleagues from multiple pediatric surgical programs who address the ongoing debate of the appropriate prophylaxis for venous thromboembolism in the pediatric trauma patient. In a related paper, Dr. Ioannis Liras and colleagues from the University of Texas in Houston evaluated age related hypercoagulability in their rapid TEG database of greater than 7000 trauma activations from 2010-2013. I will conclude by suggesting careful reading of the AAST multi-institutional of hemorrhage from severe pelvic fractures authored by Dr. Todd Constanti and AAST members.
