MTP, VIIa, and OTHER thoughts

Don't talk to us - ask our neurosurgical colleagues.  We did a survey here in MA and found that while all of the neurosurgeons agreed that steroids were at best useless and at worst dangerous, almost half still use them for fear of those legal types lurking in the wings......

Wait.  When did that get reversed?

somebody somewhere is always giving steroids and blaming lawyers.

It is my observation that the medical disciplines, including those that

write and update ATLS, have not had the courage to eliminate previously 
faulted  concepts until years after the practice has changed.    Look at
how long 
it took to reverse the faulted recommendation to use steroids in
patients 
with spinal cord injury.
