Hazlitt M, Hill JB, Gunter OL, Guillamondegui OD. Disparities in trauma: the impact of socioeconomic factors on outcomes following traumatic hollow viscus injury. The Journal of surgical research. 2014 Sep;191(191). 6-11. PMID: 24731764 [PubMed]
This piece aims to examine the relationships between hollow viscus injury (HVI) and socioeconomic factors in determining outcomes. HVI has well-defined injury patterns with complex postoperative convalescence and morbidity, representing an ideal focus for identifying potential disparities among a homogeneous injury population.
