As you know, we begin the year with some of the AAST presentations. Dr. L.D. Britt presented the AAST Fitz Lecture entitled acute care surgery. Is it time for a victory lap? Dr. Tom Scalea’s presidential address touched on these topics nostalgically. Dr. Josh Brown and colleagues from the University of Pittsburgh detail their AAST presentation on the impact of geographic distribution of trauma centers and their relationship to injury-related mortality. Dr. Brandon Chapman et al at Denver Health/University of Colorado described a chest CT based scoring system of rib fractures that are associated with pneumonia, mechanical ventilation, and need for a tracheostomy. Dr. Geoffrey Dobson from the James Cook University in Queensland provides a comprehensive review of a new impressive resuscitative adjunct adenosine, lidocaine, and magnesium (ALM).
