Mortality in Children With Severe Head Trauma: Predictive Factors and Proposal for a New Predictive Scale.
Traumatic brain injury is a public health problem around the world, and recognition of systemic sources of secondary brain lesions is crucial to improve outcome.

Predictive Factors of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Infection in Elderly Patients with Community-Onset Pneumonia.
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection is a severe and life-threatening disease in patients with community-onset (CO) pneumonia. However, the current guidelines lack specificity for a screening test for MRSA infection.

[Impact of early elective tracheotomy in critically ill patients].
Tracheotomy is one of the most frequent surgical procedures performed in critically ill patients hospitalized at intensive care units. The ideal timing for a tracheotomy is still controversial, despite decades of experience.

Risk Factors Affecting the Prognosis in Patients with Pulmonary Contusion Following Chest Trauma.
Thoracic injury and its complications are responsible for as much as 25% for blunt trauma mortality. Pulmonary contusion occurs in 30%-75% of these cases. Despite advances in pulmonary care and intensive care management pulmonary contusion still cont

Medical economic impact of tracheotomy patients on a hospital system.
Tracheotomy patients are a small portion of hospitalizations, but account for disproportionately high risk and costs. There are many complex decisions that go into the care of these patients, and practice variation is expected to be compounded in a h

Argininemia and plasma arginine bioavailability - predictive factors of mortality in the severe trauma patients?
Arginine is an amino acid determinant in the metabolic, immune and reparative responses to severe trauma. The present study aims to determine argininemia and plasma arginine bioavailability (PAB) in critical trauma patients and to analyze its correla

Thromboelastography predictive of death in trauma patients.
To determine if thromboelastography (TEG) is predictive of patient outcomes following traumatic injury.

Incidence, predictive factors, and prognosis for winged scapula in breast cancer patients after axillary dissection.
Axillary lymph node dissection is part of breast cancer surgery, and winged scapula is a possible sequela. Data regarding its incidence, predictive factors, and patient prognosis remains inconsistent. Ignorance of its diagnosis may lead to undertreat

Clinical and histological predictive risk factors of atrial fibrillation in patients undergoing open-heart surgery.
Postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) is a common complication subsequent to cardiac surgery. Various risk factors have been reported for the development of this complication; however, their precise role in POAF is unknown. In the present study, w

Inflammation-based factors and prognosis in patients with colorectal cancer.
Several parameters for predicting survival in patients with colorectal cancer have been identified, including the performance status, age, gender and tumor-node-metastasis (TNM) stage. Although the TNM stage is important and useful for predicting the
