    J Trauma 58:605-13. 2005
    ..These perceived problems still exist and may threaten the future of trauma surgery as a career. The objective of this study was to examine these issues in a profile of the current active clinical trauma care fellowship training programs...

    Shock 29:127-32. 2008
    ..We conclude that the circadian cues provided by the LD cycle improve survival after CLP. Removal of these cues by DD increases the early appearance and incidence of a hormonal response pattern that is associated with a lethal outcome...
