Title: The Management of Penetrating Injury to the Neck: A Multidisciplinary Approach
Date and Time of Session: Tuesday, October 24: 4:15 pm - 5:45 pm
Description: The treatment of traumatic injury to the neck continues to be a significant source of dynamic tension in some institutions. Vascular injury to the vessels of the neck is but one aspect that carries some controversies, especially in the setting of newer endovascualar techniques. This panel session will provide the attendees evidence-based discussions regarding the treatment of patients with penetrating neck injury, tramatic dissections, and the prioritization of treatment when injuries are complicated by c-spine fractures and/or dislocations. A series of treatment algorithms will be presented and further developed during the panel discussions.
