Systematic review: effect of whole-body computed tomography on mortality in trauma patients.

Hajibandeh S, Hajibandeh S - J Inj Violence Res (2015)

Bottom Line: Literatures were found by searching keywords in Medline, PubMed and Cochrane library.Searching the keywords in Medline and PubMed resulted in 178 and 167 articles, respectively.Unlike previous systematic reviews, this review indicates that use of WBCT in blunt trauma patients is associated with reduced overall mortality rate and that WBCT can potentially improve the probability of survival in haemodynamically stable and unstable blunt trauma patients.

Figure 2: Forest plot of odds ratio for mortality (Random effect).

Mentions: Mortality rate has been measured by all the included studies (Table 2). Huber-Wagner 2013, Huber-Wagner 2009, Kimura 2013, Hutter 2011 and Kanz 2010 measured overall mortality rate based on survival to discharge. 30-day mortality rate was measured by Yeguiayan 2012 and Wurmb 2010. Wada 2013 and Weninger 2007 measured 28-day mortality rate and in-hospital mortality rate, respectively. The results of odds ratio analysis of mortality are shown by Figure 2.
