The questionable utility of mandatory screening for the human immunodeficiency virus. Discussion.
Southwestern Surgical Congress. Annual meeting. Monterey CA (USA), 1993/04/18.
Trauma patients have been identified as a high-risk group for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, particularly those patients with penetrating injuries from urban violence.
We prospectively evaluated more than 2,000 trauma patients for HIV infection at our ACS-certified trauma center and report the results.
Between September 1987 and December 1991, 2,004 patients were admitted to our trauma unit.
All patients underwent HIV antibody assay by protocol.
