Noniatrogenic colorectal barotrauma with extraperitoneal rectal injury
We present the case of a 22-year-old male who presented to us with abdomen discomfort with subcutaneous emphysema in the abdomen and lower chest, following a prank played by his friend who had inserted a nozzle through his anal orifice and pumped high-pressure condensed air through it. Computed tomography showed evidence of air pockets in the ischiorectal fossa and pelvis. Intraoperatively, we found large-bowel and small-bowel distension with large-bowel serosal tears and rectal tears. The tears were primarily sutured and a transverse loop colostomy was fashioned to facilitate healing of rectal wounds and to relieve the di...

Stability of surgical rib fixation hardware after repeat chest trauma
We present a unique case of an adult male who had multiple ribs plated for symptomatic rib fracture nonunions and developed periprosthetic fractures following repeat trauma several months later. A 57-year-old male with a history of trauma was treated for symptomatic nonunion of several left lateral ribs with surgical rib fixation. He tolerated the procedure well and had significant improvement in his symptoms on follow-up. Several months later, he was hit by a motor vehicle while riding his bicycle. He was found to have flail chest with lateral segmental rib fractures of the first through second ribs, posterior periprosthe...

Evaluation of wait time in the children & #39;s emergency and outpatient units of a tertiary hospital in Southeast Nigeria
Conclusion: The mean waiting times reported in this study in the emergency and outpatient units of the ESUTH were within acceptable standards. However, there were cases where the waiting time in both children's units was exceptionally long. There is need for continued monitoring and evaluation of waiting times in these units for prompt attention to patients. (Source: Journal of Emergencies, Trauma and Shock)

Profiling cycling trauma throughout the body with and without helmet usage in a large united states health-care network
Conclusion: While the helmeted and helmetless riders admitted to the emergency department exhibit few differences in injury patterns, when significant injury differences were detected, they were more prevalent in helmeted riders. These differences were represented by minor-to-moderate injuries relative to morbidity and mortality, suggesting that the trauma profile of the helmeted and helmetless riders is relatively comparable. Yet, helmetless wearers did have significantly longer hospital stays, which may indicate underlying health disparities and/or behavioral differences.

A survey of emergency providers regarding the current management of anterior shoulder dislocations
Conclusions: To our knowledge, this is the first study of its kind on ASD management by emergency practitioners. Our results indicate that Dutch emergency practitioners employ all three classes of reduction techniques: traction-countertraction most commonly, closely followed by biomechanical techniques. Medication use during repositioning varied widely. Per our survey, emergency practitioners are desirous of an evidence-based guideline for ASD management.

Profile of pediatric trauma among the patients attending emergency department in a tertiary care hospital in South India
Conclusions: Most of injuries in children occurred at home. This was followed by injuries on road. The leading cause of polytrauma was RTA. RTA victims were more likely to have severe injuries and poor outcome. They were more likely to require inpatient management compared to those who fell from height or fell at level ground. Glasgow Coma Scale and PTS may be used reliably to assess the severity of injuries sustained by children. (Source: Journal of Emergencies, Trauma and Shock)

Conclusions: This study provides an overview of the intubation practices in a single-center ED. Non-ED physicians perform the majority of intubations, with a variety of induction and paralyzing agents being used. It adds to the growing call for better standardization and provision of care to patients with a deteriorating airway and the continued auditing of practice.

An epidemiological study of injuries in Karnali, Nepal
Conclusion: Trauma in Karnali is a predominantly early age male occurrence, with fall injury being the leading etiological factor, followed by injuries due to RTC and physical assaults. Soft tissue, head, and extremities were the major sites of injuries. Reducing fall injuries, RTC, and physical assaults will likely reduce mortality and morbidity due to trauma in this province.

It was first reported by Thomas Davis in 1834. ME occurs when a small caliber, slow velocity projectile penetrates a wall in the vasculature; loses its kinetic energy; and gets carried away along the bloodstream to occlude another vessel at a distant site. Civilian victims of low-velocity bullets account for 60% of such cases. ME can be arterial, venous, or paradoxical. Systemic arterial embolization acco...
