The lead article is by Dr. Naveen Sangji and colleagues from the Massachusetts General Hospital who propose an Emergency Surgery Acuity Score. Dr. Nakul Valsangkar et al from the Indiana University analyze the academic productivity of trauma/acute surgery faculty compared to general surgery and other specialty faculty. Dr. Martha Ingram and colleagues from Emory University evaluated the significance of hepatic or splenic blush on CT in children with blunt abdominal trauma. These conclusions are consistent with an accompanying paper by Dr. Stephen Fenton et al from the University of Utah who analyzed data from 20 participating centers in the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network. Dr. Sarah Sirajuddin and colleagues from the George Washington University evaluate the significance of platelet dysfunction identified in patients admitted with minor injury.
