  1. Pediatric blunt cardiac injury : epidemiology, clinical features, and diagnosis.

    Article - En anglais

    Aim 

    The goal of this study was to describe the epidemiology, clinical presentation, diagnostic methods, and outcome in a large series of children with blunt cardiac injury (BCI).

    Methods 

    A multicenter retrospective review of all individuals less than 18 years of age diagnosed with a BCI from 1983 to 1993 was conducted.

    Cases included all those with a discharge diagnosis of myocardial contusion, concussion, ventricular disruption, or unspecified BCI.

    Results 

    A total of 184 cases of BCI were identified in 16 participating centers.

    The median age was 7.4 years, and 73% were male.

    Myocardial contusions accounted for 95% of the diagnoses.

    The leading mechanisms were motor vehicle crashes involving a pedestrian (39.7%) or passenger (31.0%). The majority (87%) had multiple system trauma, with a mean Injury Severity Score of 27.2 (SD rhô 14.4).

    Pulmonary contusions were present in 50.5% and rib fractures in 23.0%. The most common diagnostic test performed was a 12-lead electrocardiogram (EKG) (82%), followed by a MB band of creatine phosphokinase (CPK-MB) (69%) and echocardiogram (65%). All three tests were performed in 50%. In these patients, agreement among various diagnostic test pairs was fair (echocardiogram vs.

    EKG, Ø=0.27) to poor (echocardiogram vs.

    CPK-MB, Ø=-0.07 and EKG vs.

    CPK-MB, Ø=0.08).

    No hemodynamically stable patient who presented with a normal sinus rhythm subsequently developed a cardiac arrhythmia or cardiac failure.

    There were 25 deaths...
