Abstract

Background: Patients with pulmonary contusion (PC) are at increased risk of development of complications and death after trauma. The early diagnosis and determination of severity of PC could improve clinical outcomes. The aim of the study was to determine the diagnostic value of ischaemia-modified albumin (IMA) in a PC model in rats.
