- Risk of pulmonary embolism in trauma patients: Not all created equalElan Jeremitsky
Department of Surgery, Allegheny General Hospital, Pittsburgh, PA Electronic address
Surgery 154:810-4; discussion 814-5. 2013..We hypothesized that patients with isolated TBI would not be at increased risk for the development of PE compared with the general trauma population...
- Starting the clock: defining nonoperative management of blunt splenic injury by timeElan Jeremitsky
Department of Trauma, Allegheny General Hospital, 320 East North Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15212, USA
Am J Surg 205:298-301. 2013..There is no consensus when the designation of nonoperative management (NOM) for splenic injury (BSI) should start. We evaluated NOM success rates based on different time points after admission...
- Trauma centers with higher rates of angiography have a lesser incidence of splenectomy in the management of blunt splenic injuryLouis M Capecci
Allegheny General Hospital, Pittsburgh, PA Electronic address
Surgery 158:1020-4; discussion 1024-6. 2015..We hypothesized that trauma centers that performed ANGIO at a greater rate would demonstrate decreased rates of splenectomy compared with trauma centers that used ANGIO less frequently...
- A chest trauma scoring system to predict outcomesJennifer Chen
Division of Trauma, Surgical Critical Care and Acute Care Surgery, Department of Surgery, Allegheny General Hospital, Pittsburgh, PA Electronic address
Surgery 156:988-93. 2014..We hypothesized that the RIBFX scoring system reliably predicts morbidity and mortality in patients with chest wall injury at the time of initial evaluation...
- Characteristics and outcomes of trauma patients with ICU lengths of stay 30 days and greater: a seven-year retrospective studyAdrian W Ong
Department of Surgery, Allegheny General Hospital, 320 East North Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15212, USA
Crit Care 13:R154. 2009..Only a few studies have specifically addressed prolonged ICU LOS after trauma. Our goals were to examine characteristics and outcomes of trauma patients with LOS >or= 30 days, predictors of prolonged stay and mortality...
- Does splenic embolization and grade of splenic injury impact nonoperative management in patients sustaining blunt splenic trauma?Elan Jeremitsky
Allegheny General Hospital, Trauma Surgery Department, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 152121, USA
Am Surg 77:215-20. 2011..Splenic embolization is a protective measure to reduce the failure of NOM. Spleen injury grade III and higher was significantly associated with NOM failure and would require a 5-day inpatient observation...
