Disease relevance of Abdominal Injuries


High impact information on Abdominal Injuries

  • Those patients who did not show any signs of abdominal injury had the following laboratory tests done: (1) levels of liver transaminases, lactate dehydrogenase, and alkaline phosphatase; (2) amylase level; and (3) uranlysis [2].
  • PARTICIPANTS: Adult victims of blunt trauma more than 17 years old, admitted between January 1, 1986, and December 31, 1989, with suspected blunt abdominal injury and serum ethanol of more than 100 mg/dL and Glasgow Coma Score of 15 [3].
  • METHODS: CT scans of 32 consecutive trauma patients who had CME were reviewed for the sources of CME, types of CME, flat inferior vena cava, and multiple abdominal injuries [4].
  • METHODS: A total of 317 patients from four Level I trauma centers with penetrating abdominal injuries and at least one hollow viscus perforation each received one preoperative and three postoperative doses of ampicillin/sulbactam 3 g intravenously [5].
  • The Roger Sherman Lecture. The current status of nonoperative management of abdominal injuries in children and young adults [6].

Chemical compound and disease context of Abdominal Injuries

  • This paper presents the results of a single, large-volume injection of bupivacaine 0.5% in the thoracic paravertebral space, achieving pain relief over several thoracic dermatomes in patients with respiratory compromise secondary to thoracic or upper abdominal injury [7].
  • The therapeutic efficacy and safety of piperacillin (4.5 g, every 6 hours) were compared with combined gentamicin (80 mg, every 8 hours) and metronidazole (500 mg every 6 hours) therapy in 246 patients hospitalized for penetrating abdominal injuries [8].
  • Mezlocillin, an extended spectrum penicillin, achieved similar results, compared with the expensive and potentially toxic combination regimen in patients with penetrating abdominal injuries [9].
