The first is by Dr. Clay Burlew and colleagues from Denver Health/University of Colorado who review their 11 years’ experience with preperitoneal pelvic packing for patients arriving in shock from pelvic fracture bleeding. The ensuing paper is by Dr. Andrea Lubitz et al from Temple University who report the compelling results of a sheep model in which inhales nitric oxide was employed to attenuate right heart failure following emergent pneumonectomy complicated by hemorrhagic shock. Dr. James Byrne and associates from the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center in Toronto investigated the relative effectiveness of low-molecular weight heparin versus imfractionated heparin in preventing pulmonary embolism following major trauma. Dr. Matt Kutcher and his colleagues at the University of Pittsburgh provide an enlightening perspective on the critical role of acute care surgeons in major academic medical centers.
