A Survey of Current Procurement Travel Practices, Accident Frequency, and Perceptions of Safety - Schenk AD, Washburn WK, Adams AB, Lynch RJ.

In 2018, 81% of the 36, 529 solid organs transplanted in the United States came from deceased donors. These organs were recovered through widespread use of aeromedical and emergency ground transportation systems. Urgently scheduled travel to remote hospita...

We present the case of a 31-year-old male with debilitating post-traumatic arthritis of the ankle secondary to osteonecrosis of the tibial plafond. He was treated with a custom-cut tibial osteochondral allograft transplantation. At 1-year follow-up, radiographs confirmed incorporation of the graft. He had demonstrated significant improvement in terms of both subjective pain and functionality of the ankle and was ready to return to work. Our observation in this case suggests that osteochondral allograft implantation may be a viable alternative treatment in cases of ankle arthritis in the younger patient.

Facial transplantation is emerging as a therapeutic option for self-inflicted gunshot wounds. The self-inflicted nature of this injury raises questions about the appropriate role of self-harm in determining patient eligibility. Potential candidates for fac...

Psychiatric care is an important aspect of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (SCT) because of high rates of acute and chronic anxiety, depression, delirium, cognitive impairment [1], decreased quality of life, body image disturbances, and post-traumatic stress [2, 3]. The use of psychosocial rating scales is potentially useful to integrate psychiatric evaluation findings into medical risk stratification models in transplantation, but has not been studied in SCT. The Stanford Integrated Psychosocial Assessment for Transplantation (SIPAT) is a structured assessment tool with demonstrated inter-rater reliability.

Being born and giving birth is full of pain, blood, and trauma. Many science fiction works, such as Brave New World, Matrix, The Island, or I am Mother imagine being brought to the world without actually being born in a mother’s womb. How far-fetched are these scenarios? Could the appearance of the artificial womb replace human mothers and natural birth in the future? How will we come into this world in 2050? Will we be born? The trauma of being born and giving birth The experience of being born and leaving the nurturing womb of our mother after more or less nine months is painful, bloody, and traumatic. Abrupt...

Abstract Returning veterans are frequently diagnosed with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Considering a recent case-controlled study of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) reporting a reduction in suicidal ideation, we investigated retrospectively three veterans with chronic TBI/PTSD symptoms who were treated with multiple rounds of HBOT with neurophysiological testing performed before and after treatment. Improvements were detected on parameters within neurocognitive domains, including reductions in suicide-related symptoms. These findings independently confirm that HBOT may b...

Conclusions: Detection of biliary leaks with hepatobiliary scintigraphy in the post-operative or post-traumatic period requires knowledge of the surgical procedure performed, anatomic variation and technique optimization. Evaluation of the causative factors which contribute to the largest biliary leaks and collections as well as subsequent assessment of the most effective interventional and diagnostic techniques to address said leaks, may aid surgeons and clinicians alike in reducing this risk, the timeline to leak resolution and the patient morbidity that follows. CLINICAL RELEVANCE/APPLICATION Establish guidelines for me...
