Peltier, Leonard F MD, PHD

Abstract:

The importance of fat embolism as a complication of bony trauma has been recognized for over 100 years. During this time there have been short bursts of rapid progress in knowledge and understanding of the problem separated by periods of confusion and misunderstandings. Presently, as a result of improvements in technology, new information has been derived to reduce significantly the morbidity and mortality of fat embolism.
