Nonsurgical techniques to control massive bleeding


Zentai, Christian; Grottke, Oliver; Spahn, Donat R; Rossaint, Rolf (2013). Nonsurgical techniques to control massive bleeding. Anesthesiology Clinics, 31(1):41-53.

Abstract

Significant advancements in nonsurgical and surgical approaches to control bleeding in severely injured patients have also improved the treatment of critical trauma-related coagulopathy. Nonsurgical procedures such as angiographic embolization are progressively considered to terminate arterial bleeding from pelvic fractures. The disturbance of coagulation may aggravate bleeding and hamper surgical procedures. The administration of coagulation factors and factor concentrates may be useful for correcting systemic coagulopathy and reducing the need for fresh frozen plasma, platelet, and red blood cell transfusions, which are associated with various adverse outcomes. In this review, nonsurgical management of critical trauma bleeding is discussed.
