Disease relevance of Thoracic Injuries


Psychiatry related information on Thoracic Injuries


High impact information on Thoracic Injuries

  • We hypothesized that IL-11 would protect against radiation-induced thoracic injury [7].
  • Furthermore, we have previously shown that BDNF application stimulates regeneration of rubrospinal axons into a peripheral graft after a thoracic injury [8].
  • BACKGROUND: Damage control techniques have been developed and applied to abdominal, vascular and thoracic injuries [9].
  • As independent risk factors for these two injuries differ, limited screening resources should focus on risk factors for occult extracranial injury: namely, low GCS and significant thoracic injury [10].
  • For extracranial the predictors were GCS < or =8 and thoracic injury (Abbreviated Injury Score > or =3) [10].

Chemical compound and disease context of Thoracic Injuries

  • STUDY OBJECTIVE: To better understand the types of chest injuries that are likely to occur following a major earthquake in the urban environment, we analyzed the pattern of chest injuries arising from the earthquake that struck the southern part of Hyogo Prefecture in Japan at 5:46 AM on January 17, 1995 and registered 7.2 on the Richter scale [11].
  • In a prospective study, the release of arachidonic acid (AA) metabolites was estimated in patients suffering blunt chest trauma alone, i.e., single thoracic injury, and in multiple injured patients including blunt chest trauma [12].
  • Ninety-four children with penetrating chest injuries were treated at Dicle University School of Medicine during a 6-year period [13].
  • Continuous epidural fentanyl analgesia: ventilatory function improvement with routine use in treatment of blunt chest injury [14].
  • Management of fifty cases of chest injury with a regimen of epidural bupivacaine and morphine [15].

Biological context of Thoracic Injuries

  • Impact during cardiac systole produced more frequent cardiovascular lesions in the epinephrine injected animals than during diastolic loading (p less than 0.001), whereas the cardiac phase was not a significant factor in the thoracic injuries of the control or isoproterenol injected animals [16].
  • Groups in trauma, burn, GI tract disease and CVA disease showed a higher detection rate of fungal species and diagnosed fungal infection, while patients with association of severe chest injury, inhalation injury and coma were significantly higher in the fungal infection group, than those in the non-fungal infection (p<0.01) [17].

Anatomical context of Thoracic Injuries


Gene context of Thoracic Injuries

  • CONCLUSIONS: Minor trauma was the most common type of chest injury [11].
  • Ventricular septal defect from blunt chest injury [19].
  • CONCLUSION: As SAB-equipped vehicles become an increasingly larger segment of the on-road vehicle fleet, the impact of head and thoracic injury after near side impact collision is likely to be reduced [20].
  • Eligible study subjects were non-institutionalized patients without chest injury (aged > or =30 years) who were admitted to participating hospitals and who received a hospital discharge diagnosis of AMI (ICD 410); n = 4,885 [21].
  • In the absence of penetrating thoracic injuries ERT yields a very poor survival in patients without vital signs on admission to the emergency center [22].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Thoracic Injuries

  • Finally, neither chest injury nor CPR significantly affected concentrations of cTnI in pericardial fluid [23].
