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 3: Forest plot of TRISS –Based SMR in WBCT group (Random effect).

Mentions: SMR (defined as ratio of recorded mortality to expected mortality) based on TRISS has been calculated by Huber-Wagner 2009, Wada 2013, Kimura 2013 and Kanz 2010 (Table 3). TRISS-based probability of survival has been measured by Yeguiayan 2012 and Weninger 2007; however, these two studies did not calculate SMR. The results of TRISS-based SMR summery analysis for WBCT and non-WBCT are shown by Figure 3 and Figure 4, respectively.
