As many of you are aware, the 81st Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma is taking place later this month. Keeping to tradition, I will be analyzing select abstracts that caught my interest over the coming weeks.
As in the past, I’ll analyze what’s available in the short abstract format and provide a bit of background about why it might be important. I will then examine the design and methods and review the results.
Finally, I will provide my own analysis, as well as questions for the authors and presenter that they might encounter at the meeting. In addition to sharing all of this with you, my readers, I always send a message to the authors so they can personally check out the post.
I will get started with an analysis of Oral Paper #1, a multi-center trial using the Trauma Specific Frailty Index.
