Andrew Straszewski, MD Resident Physician Orthopaedics
Kenneth Wilson, MD, FACS Associate Professor of Surgery
In another trauma case with UChicago Medicine, Drs. Kent, Jeffries, Straszewski, and Wilson evaluate and treat a patient with a gunshot wound and femoral fracture. An ABI was obtained, CT angiography was evaluated, and proximal tibial traction was performed for pain management.
This is the first case in our new trauma section with several surgeons over at UChicago Medicine. The patient in this case is a 51-year-old male who was involved in a motor vehicle collision. Chest X-ray and subsequent CT scan showed an expanding pneumothorax. Here, Dr. Bishop and Dr. Bendix perform a left tube thoracostomy.
