Year in Review in Trauma Surgery

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In the past few years, there have been many exciting advances in the broad discipline of trauma surgery. Recognizing time and space constraints and hoping to avoid duplicate coverage, this review will focus on selected topics not explicitly reviewed by other speakers in this conference. Specifically, we will discuss recent developments in crystalloid resuscitation, recombinant activated factor VII, ultrasound applications in trauma patients, anti-factor Xa levels in thromboprophylaxis, and intensive insulin therapy in trauma patients.
