Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The perioperative management of the patient with cardiac trauma requires a comprehensive multidisciplinary management plan for any chance of success. These patients require massive resources and expert medical care. Definitive services are best provided in the context of a regional trauma center. Nevertheless, even under optimal medical conditions, the morbidity rate from severe cardiac trauma remains high and provides trauma anesthesia and surgical specialists with the challenge of developing more efficient systems and resuscitation modalities for the future.
