Firearm injury and the Deloyers procedure: case report and literature review
This report aims to discuss the circumstances under which the Deloyers procedure was performed, as well as to evaluate the early and late postoperative outcomes, by reviewing cases conducted between 2010 and 2023. In a 22-year-old female patient who suffered major organ and tissue loss (with injuries to the sigmoid colon, descending colon, transverse colon, and mesentery) due to a firearm injury, the Deloyers procedure was applied during restorative surgery following initial damage control surgery. The procedure involved mobilizing the cecum and right colon, performing a cranio-caudal rotation over the ileocolic artery ped...

The role of Ottawa ankle rules in geriatric emergency department visits
CONCLUSION: This study demonstrates that the OAR is highly sensitive in the geriatric population but shows some limitations in terms of specificity and positive predictive value. These results support the effectiveness of using the OAR in evaluating ankle injuries in the geriatric population but also highlight the need for cautious application due to the potential for false-positive outcomes.PMID:38634845 | PMC:PMC11065971 | DOI:10.14744/tjtes.2024.39240 (Source: Turkish Journal of Trauma and Emergency Surgery : TJTES)

The impact of ankle kinesio taping on pain management in patients with acute ankle sprain
CONCLUSION: KT application, as a complementary treatment, may reduce the need for analgesics and enhance patient satisfaction in patients with AAS in the ED. Further research is needed to refine its application and confirm its effectiveness in standard AAS treatment protocols.PMID:38634848 | PMC:PMC11065976 | DOI:10.14744/tjtes.2024.55494 (Source: Turkish Journal of Trauma and Emergency Surgery : TJTES)

The role of ischemia-modified albumin, presepsin, delta neutrophil index, and inflammatory markers in diagnosing acute cholecystitis
CONCLUSION: The authors believe that the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio, delta neutrophil index, ischemia-modified albumin, ischemia-modified albumin to albumin ratio, and presepsin values can be used as new markers in the diagnosis of acute cholecystitis due to their high sensitivity, specificity, and low negative likelihood ratio.PMID:38634849 | PMC:PMC11065968 | DOI:10.14744/tjtes.2024.67520 (Source: Turkish Journal of Trauma and Emergency Surgery : TJTES)

Pancreatic injury due to blunt trauma on CT: does retropancreatic fat tissue reduce the severity of pancreatic injury?
CONCLUSION: Retropancreatic adipose tissue protects the pancreatic body from the impacts of blunt abdominal trauma. An increased amount of retropancreatic adipose tissue is associated with a reduced rate of pancreatic injury.PMID:38634850 | PMC:PMC11065974 | DOI:10.14744/tjtes.2024.60622 (Source: Turkish Journal of Trauma and Emergency Surgery : TJTES)

Is it possible to predict mortality in patients with high-grade blunt liver injury? A single trauma center study
CONCLUSION: Base deficit, hemoglobin (Hb), lactate levels, injury severity, liver injury grade, accompanying abdominal injuries at admission, and erythrocyte suspension demands were found to be associated with increased mortality rates. Certain cutoff values for the aforementioned parameters could be established. However, further data are required to confirm these findings.PMID:38634851 | PMC:PMC11065970 | DOI:10.14744/tjtes.2024.60646 (Source: Turkish Journal of Trauma and Emergency Surgery : TJTES)

Effect of intra-abdominal boric acid in the experimental adhesion model
CONCLUSION: In the future, boron could play a significant role in reducing and preventing intra-abdominal adhesions after surgery. This investigation could pave the way for further research into the mechanism by which boric acid prevents the development of intra-abdominal adhesions. Moreover, it is imperative to explore the potential side effects of intra-abdominal boron application at the optimum concentration of the solution.PMID:38634852 | PMC:PMC11065977 | DOI:10.14744/tjtes.2024.77767 (Source: Turkish Journal of Trauma and Emergency Surgery : TJTES)

A dangerous tradition: retrospective analysis of celebratory gunfire-related injuries in three tertiary hospitals
CONCLUSION: Sociologically, gun ownership is often associated with prestige and can trigger the use of firearms in celebrations, such as weddings, in some societies. However, this tradition can result in tragic consequences worldwide. Stricter regulations and legal frameworks are necessary to prevent the use of unlicensed weapons. Collaborative efforts are crucial for effectively addressing the societal normalization of celebratory gunfire. Future prospective studies can comprehensively evaluate the incidence of CGRI and identify effective preventive strategies to safeguard public health.PMID:38634853 | PMC:PMC11065979 | D...
