  • WSES classification and guidelines for liver trauma. [Review]
  • WJWorld J Emerg Surg 2016; 11:50
  • Coccolini F, Catena F, … Ansaloni L
  • The severity of liver injuries has been universally classified according to the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST) grading scale. In determining the optimal treatment strategy, how...
  • In-hospital costs of an admission for adhesive small bowel obstruction. [Journal Article]
  • WJWorld J Emerg Surg 2016; 11:49
  • Krielen P, van den Beukel BA, … Ten Broek RP
  • CONCLUSIONS: The in-hospital costs of an admission for ASBO are higher than previously thought. These costs can be used to guide hospital reimbursement policy and for the development of a cost-effective model for the use of adhesion barriers.
  • Splenic artery embolization: technically feasible but not necessarily advantageous. [Review]
  • WJWorld J Emerg Surg 2016; 11(1):47
  • Van der Cruyssen F, Manzelli A
  • CONCLUSIONS: NOM+ SAE involves potential risks and operative management may be preferable to SAE for certain patients. To clarify current literature, we propose a new algorithm for blunt abdominal trauma that should be validated prospectively. New evidence-based protocols should be developed to guide diagnosis and management of patients with splenic trauma.
  • Prediction of blunt traumatic injuries and hospital admission based on history and physical exam. [Journal Article]
  • WJWorld J Emerg Surg 2016; 11(1):46
  • Beal AL, Ahrendt MN, … Beilman GA
  • CONCLUSIONS: In a neurologically-intact group of trauma patients, experienced trauma surgeons would have missed 46.7 % of the actual injuries, based only on their history and physical exam. Once accurate diagnoses of injuries were completed, usually with the help of CT scans, admission dispositions changed in 20.6 % of patients. Treatment changes occurred in 44.2 % of the missed injuries, though usually minimal. Broad elimination of early imaging studies in alert, blunt trauma patients cannot be advocated.
  • Emergency abdominal surgery after solid organ transplantation: a systematic review. [Review]
  • WJWorld J Emerg Surg 2016; 11(1):43
  • de'Angelis N, Esposito F, … Azoulay D
  • CONCLUSIONS: Emergency abdominal surgery in transplanted patients is not a rare event. Although associated with relevant mortality and morbidity, a prompt and appropriate surgery can lead to satisfactory results if performed taking into account the patient's immunosuppression therapy and hemodynamic stability.
