The lead paper is by Dr. Junichi Inoue and colleagues from the Tokyo Medical University who analyze the Japan Trauma Data Bank to determine the impact of REBOA. The next paper is by Dr. Vicente Undurraga and colleagues from the PROPPR group. In this subgroup the authors selected patients requiring emergency laparotomy, defined as within 90 minutes of hospital arrival, with the hypothesis that this high risk group would be most likely to benefit from an initial 1:1:1 transfusion strategy. The next paper by Dr. Shibani Pati and colleagues from the University of California at San Francisco and colleagues from Portland and Houston, examine the type of plasma to deliver to attenuate the endotheliopathy of trauma. Finally, I believe another timely report is by Dr. James Byrne and associates from the University of Toronto who analyze the impact of EMS prehospital times on trauma center outcome.
