Clinical Implementation of the Humacyte Human Acellular Vessel: Implications for Military & Civilian Trauma Care

Research Paper Title Clinical implementation of the Humacyte human acellular vessel: implications for military and civilian trauma care. Abstract The incidence of wartime vascular injury has increased and is a leading cause of mortality and mobidity. While ligation remains an option, current resuscitation and damage control techniques have resulted in vascular repair being pursued in… Read More

A Review of Diagnosis & Treatment of Traumatic Vascular Injury of Limbs in Military & Emergency Medicine

Research Paper Title Diagnosis and treatment of traumatic vascular injury of limbs in military and emergency medicine: A systematic review. Background Traumatic vascular injury is caused by explosions and projectiles (bullets and shrapnel); it may affect the arteries and veins of the limbs, and is common in wartime, triggering bleeding, and ischaemia. The increasing use… Read More

Linking Incidence of Overuse Musculoskeletal Injuries in Military Service Members with Traumatic Lower Limb Amputation

Research Paper Title Incidence of Overuse Musculoskeletal Injuries in Military Service Members With Traumatic Lower Limb Amputation. Background To describe the incidence of overuse musculoskeletal injuries in service members with combat-related lower limb amputation. A retrospective cohort study within military treatment facilities. Methods Service members with deployment-related lower limb injury (N=791): 496 with a major… Read More

Battlefield Injuries: Linking Eyeballs & Glue

A smart glue could fill cuts in the outer eyeball sustained during battle, protecting the eye until the wound can be stitched by someone skilled in microsurgery. “Each day that no intervention is taken, the risk of permanent vision loss increases,” says Jack Whalen of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. His team has… Read More

Multimodality Imaging Approaches for Evaluating Traumatic Extremity Injuries

Research Paper Title Multimodality Imaging Approaches for Evaluating Traumatic Extremity Injuries: Implications for Military Medicine. Abstract Significance: Military service members are susceptible to traumatic extremity injuries that often result in limb loss. Tremendous efforts have been made to improve medical treatment that supports residual limb function and health. Despite recent improvements in treatment and novel… Read More

Discussing the Pathophysiology of Volumetric Muscle Loss (VML) Injury.

Research Paper Title Pathophysiology of Volumetric Muscle Loss Injury. Background Volumetric muscle loss (VML) injuries are prevalent in civilian and military trauma patients and are known to impart chronic functional deficits. The frank loss of muscle tissue that defines VML injuries is beyond the robust reparative and regenerative capacities of mammalian skeletal muscle. Given the… Read More

Developing Collaboration to Eliminate Preventable Death on the Battlefield

Research Paper Title Analysis of injury patterns and roles of care in US and Israel militaries during recent conflicts: Two are better than one. Background As new conflicts emerge and enemies evolve, military medical organisations worldwide must adopt the ‘lessons learned.’ In this study, the researchers describe roles of care (ROCs) deployed and injuries sustained… Read More
