  • Performance of new adjustments to the TRISS equation model in developed and developing countries. [Journal Article]
  • WJWorld J Emerg Surg 2017; 12:17
  • Domingues CA, Coimbra R, … Sousa RM
  • CONCLUSIONS: Survival probability models showed better performance when applied in data collected in the high-income countries (HIC) regardless the country they were derived. The severity is an important factor to consider when using non-adjusted survival probability models for the local population. Adjusted models for severely traumatized patients better predict survival probability in less severely traumatized populations. Other factors besides physiological and anatomical data may impact final outcomes and should be identified in each environment if they are to be used in the development of the trauma care performance improvement process in middle-income countries.
  • Combined totally mini-invasive approach in necrotizing pancreatitis: a case report and systematic literature review. [Review]
  • WJWorld J Emerg Surg 2017; 12:16
  • Sorrentino L, Chiara O, … Cimbanassi S
  • CONCLUSIONS: No mini-invasive technique has demonstrated significantly better outcomes over the others, and each technique has specific indications, advantages, and pitfalls. Indeed, ETN could be suitable for central WOPNs, while VARD or PD could be suggested for lateral collections. A combination of different approaches is feasible and could significantly optimize the clinical management in critically ill patients affected by complicated necrotizing pancreatitis.
  • The history of risk: a review. [Review]

  • Stahel PF, Douglas IS, … Weckbach S
  • In the USA alone, around 22 million patients annually discuss the need for surgical procedure with their surgeon. On a global scale, more than 200 million patients are exposed to the risk of undergoi...
  • Safety and effectiveness of propranolol in severely burned patients: systematic review and meta-analysis. [Review]
  • WJWorld J Emerg Surg 2017; 12:11
  • Manzano-Nunez R, García-Perdomo HA, … Foianini JE
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our analysis indicates that there were no differences in mortality or sepsis in severely burned patients treated with propranolol compared with those who had usual care or placebo. However, the use of propranolol in these patients resulted in lower requirements of blood transfusion and lower values of heart rate. The evidence synthesized in this systematic review is limited to conclude that propranolol reduces the length of hospital stay among severely burned patients. Future trials should assess the impact of propranolol on clinically relevant outcomes such as mortality and adverse events.
  • IROA: International Register of Open Abdomen, preliminary results. [Journal Article]
  • WJWorld J Emerg Surg 2017; 12:10
  • Coccolini F, Montori G, … Ansaloni L
  • CONCLUSIONS: Temporary abdominal closure is reliable and safe. The different techniques account for different results according to the different indications. In peritonitis commercial negative pressure temporary closure seems to improve results. In trauma skin-closure and Bogotà-bag seem to improve results.
