A nonspecific term used to describe transient alterations or loss of consciousness following closed head injuries. The duration of UNCONSCIOUSNESS generally lasts a few seconds, but may persist for several hours. Concussions may be classified as mild, intermediate, and severe. Prolonged periods of unconsciousness (often defined as greater than 6 hours in duration) may be referred to as post-traumatic coma (COMA, POST-HEAD INJURY).

The prevalence and distribution of bruising in babies. (1/266)

AIM: To obtain a prevalence rate and determine the distribution of accidental bruising in babies. METHODS: 177 babies aged 6-12 months were examined naked to look for bruises. They were seen in health visitor hearing test clinics and child health surveillance clinics. The site, size, shape, and colour of bruises were recorded on a skin map, and the parent's explanation noted. Any other injury was recorded. Data collection included the baby's age, mobility and weight, demographic details, and health visitor concerns. RESULTS: Twenty two babies had bruises, giving a prevalence rate of 12%. There was a total of 32 bruises, 15 babies had one bruise. All bruises were found on the front of the body and were located over bony prominences. Twenty five of the bruises were on the face and head, and seven were on the shin. The babies with bruises on the shin were mobile. There was a highly significant increase in bruises with increase in mobility. CONCLUSIONS: The study has produced a prevalence and distribution of bruising in babies and sets a baseline from which to work when assessing bruises. It also tested out the methodology, which could be used in further research, particularly of younger babies. Clinicians need to assess a baby's level of development when considering whether a bruise is accidental.  (+info)

Injuries caused by falling soccer goalposts in Denmark. (2/266)

OBJECTIVE: A falling soccer goalpost is associated with the potential risk of serious injury that can sometimes even be fatal. The aim of the study was to analyse the extent of the problem in Denmark and focus on the mechanism of injury and prevention. METHODS: Data were analysed for the period 1989-1997 from the European Home and Leisure Accident Surveillance System, which is an electronic register of the injuries seen in the casualty departments of the hospitals of five selected cities in Denmark representing 14% of the Danish population; in addition, fatal accidents in the whole of Denmark since 1981 were examined. Forty two injured persons were interviewed about the circumstances of the accident. Attempts were made to estimate the proportion of goalposts secured by counterweight in the five different regions, compared with the proportion secured with ground stakes and those that were unsecured, by analysing data from the largest producers of goalposts in Denmark. RESULTS: In the period 1981-1988, two fatal accidents were recorded. In the period 1989-1997, 117 people were injured by a falling goalpost; six of the injuries required hospitalisation. Some 88% of the injured were under the age of 15. In a telephone interview with 42 of the injured, 50% stated that the goalpost fell because someone was hanging on the crossbar. Comparing the five different regions with respect to the proportion of goalposts secured by counterweight and the number of accidents, the following relation was found. Areas in which a high percentage of the goalposts were secured by a counterweight correlated inversely with a high number of accidents (r = -0.9; p = 0.04). CONCLUSION: Soccer is a widely played sport and it is important to be aware that accidents caused by falling goalposts can occur and that they presumably can be prevented by proper use of goalposts, by using secure goalposts, and by securing old goalposts with a counterweight.  (+info)

Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of Ro 44-3888 after single ascending oral doses of sibrafiban, an oral platelet aggregation inhibitor, in healthy male volunteers. (3/266)

AIMS: This study constituted the first administration of the oral platelet inhibitor, sibrafiban, to humans. The aim was to investigate the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of Ro 44-3888, the active principle of sibrafiban, after single ascending oral doses of sibrafiban. Particular emphasis was placed on intersubject variability of the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic parameters of Ro 44-3888. METHODS: The study consisted of three parts. Part I was an open ascending-dose study to determine target effect ranges of sibrafiban. Part II, a double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study, addressed the intersubject variability of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic parameters of the active principle at a sibrafiban dose achieving an intermediate effect. Part III was a double-blind, placebo-controlled, ascending-dose design covering the complete plasma concentration vs pharmacodynamic response curve of sibrafiban. RESULTS: At sibrafiban doses between 5 mg and 12 mg, the pharmacokinetics of free Ro 44-3888 in plasma were linear whereas those of total Ro 44-3888 were non-linear because of the saturable binding to the glycoprotein IIb-IIIa receptor. Saturation of the GP IIb-IIIa receptor was reached at plasma concentrations of 15.9 ng ml-1. At sibrafiban doses up to 2 mg, ADP-induced platelet aggregation was inhibited by 50%, whereas the inhibition of TRAP-induced platelet aggregation was about 20-30%. At the higher doses, ADP-induced platelet aggregation was almost completely inhibited while a clear dose-response could be observed with TRAP-induced inhibition of platelet aggregation at sibrafiban doses of 5 to 12 mg. Ivy bleeding time increased very steeply with dose with a significant prolongation observed at doses of 5 to 7 mg of sibrafiban (5-7 min, >30 min in one case). At a sibrafiban dose of 12 mg, the stopping criterion for dose escalation (prolongation of the Ivy bleeding time >30 min in three out of four subjects per dose group) was reached. The interindividual coefficients of variation of the integrated pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic parameters (AUC and AUE) were below 20%, thus lying well within the pre-set level of acceptance. CONCLUSIONS: With a low intersubject variability of its pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic parameters, linear pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamic effects closely related to its plasma concentrations, Ro 44-3888 has good pharmacological prerequisites for a well controllable therapy of secondary prevention of arterial thrombosis in patients with acute coronary syndrome.  (+info)

Injury rates in Shotokan karate. (4/266)

OBJECTIVE: To document the injury rate in three British Shotokan karate championships in consecutive years. In these tournaments strict rules governed contact, with only "light" or "touch" contact allowed. Protective padding for the head, hands, or feet was prohibited. METHODS: Prospective recording of injuries resulting from 1770 bouts in three national competitions of 1996, 1997, and 1998. Details of ages and years of karate experience were also obtained. RESULTS: 160 injuries were sustained in 1770 bouts. The overall rate of injury was 0.09 per bout and 0.13 per competitor. 91 (57%) injuries were to the head. The average age of those injured was 22 years, with an average of nine years of experience in karate. CONCLUSIONS: The absence of protective padding does not result in higher injury rates than in most other series of Shotokan karate injuries. Strict refereeing is essential, however, to maintain control and minimise contact.  (+info)

Alterations in AMPA receptor subunit expression after experimental spinal cord contusion injury. (5/266)

The AMPA-preferring subtype of ionotropic glutamate receptors (GluRs) is a hetero-oligomeric ion channel assembled from various combinations of four subunits: GluR1, GluR2, GluR3, and GluR4. Antagonists of these receptors can mitigate the effects of experimental spinal cord injury (SCI), indicating that these receptors play a significant role in pathophysiology after spinal trauma. We tested the hypothesis that SCI alters expression of AMPA receptors using a standardized thoracic weight-drop model of rat contusive spinal cord injury. AMPA receptor subunit expression was measured at 24 hr and at 1 month after SCI with quantitative Western blot analysis and in situ hybridization. GluR2 protein levels were preferentially reduced near the injury site 24 hr after SCI. This reduction persisted at 1 month. At a cellular level, a significant decrease in both GluR2 and GluR4 mRNA was found in spared ventral motor neurons adjacent to the injury site and distal to it, with other AMPA subunit mRNAs maintained at control levels. In contrast, only GluR1 mRNA was decreased in the sympathetic preganglionic neurons of the intermediolateral horn. These results suggest population-specific and long-lasting changes in neuronal AMPA receptor composition, which may alter response to glutamate after SCI. These alterations may contribute not only to acute neuropathological consequences of injury, but they may also be partially responsible for the altered functional state of preserved tissue seen chronically after SCI.  (+info)

Effects of the sodium channel blocker tetrodotoxin on acute white matter pathology after experimental contusive spinal cord injury. (6/266)

Focal microinjection of tetrodotoxin (TTX), a potent voltage-gated sodium channel blocker, reduces neurological deficits and tissue loss after spinal cord injury (SCI). Significant sparing of white matter (WM) is seen at 8 weeks after injury and is correlated to a reduction in functional deficits. To determine whether TTX exerts an acute effect on WM pathology, Sprague Dawley rats were subjected to a standardized weight-drop contusion at T8 (10 gm x 2.5 cm). TTX (0. 15 nmol) or vehicle solution was injected into the injury site 5 or 15 min later. At 4 and 24 hr, ventromedial WM from the injury epicenter was compared by light and electron microscopy and immunohistochemistry. By 4 hr after SCI, axonal counts revealed reduced numbers of axons and significant loss of large (>/=5 micrometer)-diameter axons. TTX treatment significantly reduced the loss of large-diameter axons. In addition, TTX significantly attenuated axoplasmic pathology at both 4 and 24 hr after injury. In particular, the development of extensive periaxonal spaces in the large-diameter axons was reduced with TTX treatment. In contrast, there was no significant effect of TTX on the loss of WM glia after SCI. Thus, the long-term effects of TTX in reducing WM loss after spinal cord injury appear to be caused by the reduction of acute axonal pathology. These results support the hypothesis that TTX-sensitive sodium channels at axonal nodes of Ranvier play a significant role in the secondary injury of WM after SCI.  (+info)

Skin bruising, adrenal function and markers of bone metabolism in asthmatics using inhaled beclomethasone and fluticasone. (7/266)

Fluticasone propionate (FP) is generally considered to have twice the efficacy of beclomethasone dipropionate (BDP) on a weight-to-weight basis for the control of asthma, and may have lesser effects on adrenal function. However, the effects of FP and BDP on skin integrity and bone metabolism markers require further examination. Sixty-nine asthmatic subjects were enrolled in a double-blind crossover study in which, after a baseline period, they received BDP or FP (at half the dose of BDP) for two 4-month periods each. A questionnaire on skin bruising, a skin examination, tests of adrenal function and of markers of bone metabolism were performed after 2 months of each period. The number of asthma exacerbations was not significantly different for the two treatment periods (eight for BDP and nine for FP), nor were various indices of asthma control. Whereas the frequency of bruising reported by the questionnaire was not different, there were more bruises on examination for BDP (1.6+/-2.5) than for FP (1.2+/-2.3) (p=0.04). Although baseline serum cortisol was not significantly different for the two drugs, the increase in cortisol after cortrosyn was lower for BDP (357+/-158 micromol x dL(-1)) than for FP (422+/-144 micromol x dL(-1)) (p<0.01). Serum osteocalcin levels were significantly lower in subject on BDP (2.8+/-1.7 microg x mL(-1)) than on FP (3.5+/-1.9 ng x mL(-1)) (p=0.003). Other markers of bone metabolism were not significantly altered. The three major side-effects were loosely, but significantly correlated with the periods on BDP and FP. However, skin bruises, increase in cortisol after Cortrosyn and osteocalcin were not significantly correlated for the period on either BDP or FP. In conclusion, whereas fluticasone propionate used at half the dose of beclomethasone dipropionate has a comparable effect on the control of asthma, fluticasone propionate demonstrated fewer side-effects in terms of skin bruising, adrenal suppression and bone metabolism.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Suspected myocardial contusion. T2 - Triage and indications for monitoring. AU - Wisner, David H. AU - Reed, William H.. AU - Riddick, Robert S.. PY - 1990/7. Y1 - 1990/7. N2 - Although many different tests are used to diagnose myocardial contusion, the clinical implications of the diagnosis are unclear. This makes it difficult to decide which patients require admission to a monitored bed. During 16 months, 3010 patients with blunt trauma were reviewed for evidence of sequelae attributable to myocardial contusion. None of 2204 admissions to unmonitored beds had evidence of serious arrhythmias or heart failure. No patient who died after admission had myocardial contusion at autopsy. Of the 644 admissions to monitored beds, 95 had workups for suspected contusion. Heart failure not obvious on admission did not occur and there were only four arrhythmias that required treatment. Conduction abnormalities on admission electrocardiogram predicted serious arrhythmias. Echocardiography and ...
A pulmonary contusion, also known as lung contusion, is a bruise of the lung, caused by chest trauma. As a result of damage to capillaries, blood and other fluids accumulate in the lung tissue. The excess fluid interferes with gas exchange, potentially leading to inadequate oxygen levels (hypoxia). Unlike pulmonary laceration, another type of lung injury, pulmonary contusion does not involve a cut or tear of the lung tissue. A pulmonary contusion is usually caused directly by blunt trauma but can also result from explosion injuries or a shock wave associated with penetrating trauma. With the use of explosives during World Wars I and II, pulmonary contusion resulting from blasts gained recognition. In the 1960s its occurrence in civilians began to receive wider recognition, in which cases it is usually caused by traffic accidents. The use of seat belts and airbags reduces the risk to vehicle occupants. Diagnosis is made by studying the cause of the injury, physical examination and chest ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Isolated computed tomography diagnosis of pulmonary contusion does not correlate with increased morbidity. AU - Kwon, Albert. AU - Sorrells, Donald L.. AU - Kurkchubasche, Arlet G.. AU - Cassese, John A.. AU - Tracy, Thomas F.. AU - Luks, Francois I.. PY - 2006/1. Y1 - 2006/1. N2 - Background: Increased utilization of computed tomography (CT) has led to a rise in the diagnosis of pulmonary contusion. Its clinical significance, in the absence of findings on chest radiograph (CXR), has not been defined. This study examines the clinical course of patients with CT-only diagnosis of pulmonary contusion and compares it with that of patients with CXR-proven pulmonary contusion. Methods: The trauma database identified all children undergoing chest CT for blunt thoracic trauma during a 3-year period. Records were reviewed for age, mechanism of injury, Injury Severity Score (ISS), length of hospital stay (LOS), need for intensive care unit admission, and need for endotracheal intubation. A ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - FK506 reduces the severity of cutaneous hypersensitivity in rats with a spinal cord contusion. AU - Voda, Jan. AU - Hama, Aldric. AU - Sagen, Jacqueline. N1 - Funding Information: We would like to thank Mr. Paulo Diaz for assistance with the contusion injury surgery and Mr. Adam Basler for assistance with behavioral testing. Supported by the Ralph C. Wilson Foundation and NS51667.. PY - 2007/5. Y1 - 2007/5. N2 - Spinal cord injury (SCI) leads to persistent pain as well as motor dysfunction, both of which lack effective therapeutics. The immunosuppressant FK506 (tacrolimus) has been shown to improve behavioral outcome following SCI in rats. Just prior to a mid-thoracic spinal cord contusion injury, rats were injected with either vehicle or FK506 and treatment was continued through the duration of the experiment. Vehicle-treated rats developed significant and long-lasting hind paw hypersensitivity to innocuous mechanical stimulation, noxious heat and cooling stimuli. In contrast, ...
Bosentan is an endothelin-1 receptor antagonist with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antiproliferative effects. We aimed to evaluate its effects on lung tissue in a pulmonary contusion (PC) model. The rats were randomly divided into five groups: PC3: PC evaluated on the 3rd day (n = 8), PC-B3: PC enteral bosentan 100 mg/kg/day, for 3 days (n = 8), PC7: PC evaluated on the 7th day (n = 7), PC-B7: PC 7 days bosentan 100 mg/kg/day, for 7 days (n = 8), C: control (n = 6). Unilateral lung contusion was created by dropping a metal weight onto the chest. The rats were sacrificed on the 3rd or the 7th days. The lung tissue was evaluated histopathologically for alveolar edema, congestion, and leukocyte infiltration, biochemically for malondialdehyde (MDA), superoxide dismutase (SOD), and nitric oxide (NO) levels, and immunohistochemically for inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), and apoptosis scores. Alveolar edema, congestion, and leukocyte infiltration ...
How are they treated? Well, x-rays of the chest and how the patient is looks/feels/act (its clinicial presentation) aid in the decision. Some times air will be taken out of the chest using a needle (thoracocentesis). Other times, if the patient is stable, the patient may be monitored. If the chest wound is open (a hole in the chest that is exposed to the outside environment), it should be closed and a chest tube may be placed.. Chest trauma does not always include a pneumothorax. During a trauma, the lungs may be bruised (lung contusions), the ribs may be broken, or the diaphragm may be ruptured. These are all serious emergencies. By and far, lung contusions are the most common. If your pet is diagnosed or has the potential to have lung contusions, here is what I think you should know. There is no direct way of treating lung contusions. One of the best treatments that we have is intravenous fluids. If lung contusions occur, we worry that a clot has or might form. This clot may travel and ...
We can distinguish two main types of bruises, namely minor bruises and severe bruises. Minor bruises causes only superficial bruising at the tissue level and is not very painful. Depending on the intensity of the blow and the patients sensitivity, a blue or a red spot may gradually appear on the affected body part and swelling may appear, before decreasing a few hours later. Slight bruising is harmless and disappears without after a few weeks without leaving any mark.. In regard to severe bruises, they are fairly deep unopened contusions. The effusion of blood is almost immediate and the haematoma forms right after the impact. The swelling increases with the intensity of pain. In case of significant internal bleeding, the bruise can lead to compartment syndrome, which is most often responsible for sudden stoppage of blood flow to the affected area and surrounding tissues. When the bruise is severe, it can also reach internal organs and be accompanied by fractures or ligament rupture.. ...

Children restrained with lap belts may sustain severe injuries. We investigated the frequency of each type of injury associated with seatbelt contusions. The medical records of all trauma patients with ICD-9 codes for abdominal wall contusions from January 1, 1999, to December 31, 2001, were reviewed. All patients with seatbelt contusions were included in the study. Age, seat position, weight, restraint-type, sex, and mechanism of injury were noted. There were 1447 admissions for trauma over the 3-year period. Forty-six patients (ages 4-13) had a seatbelt contusion. Thirty-three wore lap belts, and 13 wore lap and shoulder harnesses. Twenty-two children required abdominal exploration. Small bowel injuries were the most common intra-abdominal injuries. Facial injuries were the most common associated injuries. Forty-eight per cent of children with seatbelt contusions in our institution required surgery. The smaller patients tend to have higher frequency of abdominal injuries. The presence of ...
A bone bruise is a traumatic injury to a bone. Its less severe than a bone fracture.. You might think of a black and blue mark on your skin when you hear the word bruise, but bruises can also happen in muscle and bone. This happens when an injury damages small blood vessels and causes blood and fluid to leak into the nearby tissues and blood vessels. Bone is made of different kinds of tissue. The periosteum is a thin layer of tissue that covers most of a bone. Where bones come together, there is usually a layer of cartilage at the edges. The bone here is called subchondral bone. Deep inside the bone is an area called the medulla. It contains the bone marrow and fibrous tissue called trabeculae. With a bone fracture, all of the trabeculae in a region of bone have broken. But with a bone bruise, an injury only damages some of these trabeculae. Its also called a microfracture. An injury might cause blood to build up in the area beneath the periosteum. This causes a subperiosteal hematoma, a type ...
Cerebral contusion, Latin contusio cerebri, a form of traumatic brain injury, is a bruise of the brain tissue. Like bruises in other tissues, cerebral contusion can be associated with multiple microhemorrhages, small blood vessel leaks into brain tissue. Contusion occurs in 20-30% of severe head injuries. A cerebral laceration is a similar injury except that, according to their respective definitions, the pia-arachnoid membranes are torn over the site of injury in laceration and are not torn in contusion. The injury can cause a decline in mental function in the long term and in the emergency setting may result in brain herniation, a life-threatening condition in which parts of the brain are squeezed past parts of the skull. Thus treatment aims to prevent dangerous rises in intracranial pressure, the pressure within the skull. ...
Results Between the 3-month and 12 month interviews 28% of the participants reported at least one subsequent injury. Subsequent injury was 34% more likely among participants with a prior injury affecting them at the time of the sentinel injury compared with participants without a prior injury affecting them, and more likely among non-workers (31% more likely) and trade/manual workers (32% more likely) compared with professionals. Participants whose sentinel injury was due to assault were 43% more likely to report a subsequent injury compared with those whose sentinel injury was accidental. A subsequent injury was 23% less likely if the sentinel injury was a lower extremity fracture compared with other injuries, and 21% less likely if the sentinel injury event involved hospitalisation.. ...

You develop a bruise, or black-and-blue mark, when some type of trauma causes bleeding near the surface of your body without breaking the skin. With minor injuries - like bumping your arm or pinching your finger - the bleeding is usually confined to your skin and the bruise becomes apparent within minutes to hours.. With more forceful trauma - like twisting your ankle, running into the corner of a table or getting hit with a baseball -bleeding typically occurs in the deeper tissues and the blood gradually seeps into your skin over a period of hours to days. This is why you may not see a bruise for a day or two after youve had a fall or other injury.. The size of a bruise depends on what caused your injury and the amount of force involved. The more forceful the injury, the greater the amount of bleeding and the larger your bruise will be. The closer to your skin surface the bruise is, the more intense the colors you will see.. ...

The numeric scores based on MI for the severity of pathology in samples from the SD and JB regions of the injured muscle are shown in Table 4. The mean scores for the SD biopsies of 6.9 ± 1.2 (95% CI: 4.9-8.7) and for the JB biopsies of 12.5 ± 2.6 (95% CI: 8.3-16.7) were significantly different (p , 0.05). Note that the mean relative severity of pathology (expressed as a percentage of the maximum score of 15) was 83.3% in JB and 46% in SD specimens.. Discussion. The drop-mass technique has been used by others to create a controlled contusion injury. Fisher et al.

Describe the features of a bruise - Describe the features of a bruise.? Bruise. When the skin is traumatized, usually by a direct blow, small capillaries are damaged and leak blood cells. These spread through the interspaces under the skin leading to the bluish discoloration called a bruise. Unless associated with bleeding disorders, or the trauma caused deeper injury, these can be treated with icing for 2-3 days and then heat later to resolve the bruise.

There it is again. Another unsightly mark on your leg. You dont even remember bumping yourself! Why do we bruise, and how can we prevent it?A bruise occurs when tiny blood vessels are damaged or broken as the result of a blow to the skin. The raised and discolored area is the result of blood leaking from these injured blood vessels into the tissue, and from the inflammation that accompanies the injury. Bruises change in appearance over time. In fact, you can tell the age of a bruise by examining its appearance. When it first appears, a bruise will look reddish, reflecting the color of the blood just under the skin. Within one or two days, the reddish iron from the blood changes and the bruise appears blue or purple. By day six, the color will change to green. By day eight or nine, the bruise will appear yellowish-brown. Within two to three weeks, the healing process will be complete and the skin will look normal once more. When a bruise continues to get larger instead of going away, or becomes ...
A contusion is bruising of brain tissue. It can form anywhere blood leaking from broken blood vessels pools in brain tissue, causing swelling. Strong, direct blows to the head cause brain contusions. They also happen when a moving head strikes an object at high speed - for example, when a head hits the windshield during a car crash. The head often suffers structural damage, such as broken skull bones (skull fracture). Contusions can occur beneath a skull fracture or in response to an impact in which the brain shifts and rebounds against the skull. A contusion may occur at two points: where the head hits an object (the point of impact); and where the recoiling brain strikes the opposite side of the skull. This is known as a coup-contrecoup injury. A severe blow to one side of the head can cause even greater damage on the opposite side. Contusions can temporarily or permanently disrupt brain activity - depending on their size and location. Minor damage from hits or blows causes small contusions ...
A fall or bump may cause blood vessels to rupture under the skin which often leads to the development of bruises. It usually occurs because the blood from the vessels leaks into the tissues under the skin giving it the black and blue color which is characteristic of bruises. They may change color and become reddish blue, yellowish green or purplish-black as they gradually heal within 2 to 4 weeks. Sometimes the bruises spread in the direction of gravity, i.e., towards the lower half of the body. Thus, a bruise on the face or shoulder heals faster than a bruise on the leg. Bruises usually take a day or two to appear. However, if a person experiences swelling, bruising and pain within 30 minutes of the injury, then it may be indicative of a more serious problem. ...
On each hit that can be followed by a bruise apply ice or if you dont have ice, put a package with frozen vegetables. Hold the package with ice above the contusion for a quarter of hour. After you take the ice, do not put nothing warm there, but let it become warm in a natural way. By cooling , the main stems from the hurt region will contract themselves and in this way the blood that forms the bruise wont accumulate. Besides the constriction effect, the ice will decrease the inflammation and will dull the contusion area ...

An abdominal contusion is a soft tissue injury to the abdominal wall (muscles), without significant internal injury. Any direct force applied to the abdomen (fist, foot or seatbelt) can result in this condition. As with other contusions, bleeding occurs to a small degree in the soft tissue and muscles. This may later manifest as a bruise, resulting in pain or tenderness to that area. This type of injury can easily be mistaken for a more serious abdominal injury by the patient.. Common symptoms of abdominal wall contusions include pain that is increased when sitting up, tightening of the abdominal muscles, or straight leg raises.. Treatment of abdominal wall contusions includes the application of ice, with rest. Analgesics such as acetaminophen or anti-inflammatories (ibuprofen) can help reduce pain. Recovery for most abdominal wall contusions is rapid.. ...

Bruising and bleeding both occur because of damage to blood vessels. When a vein, artery, or capillary is torn or cut, blood flows out into the vessels surroundings; if the escaped blood is contained within the tissues directly under the skin, we see a bruise. While all of us bruise from time to time, some people bruise particularly easily. A number of factors, besides being accident-prone, can make this occur. One factor contributing to easy bruising is thinning skin, caused by aging or by medications such as corticosteroids . Easy bruising can also be due to fragile blood vessel walls. Finally, difficulties with blood clotting, including problems with platelets or clotting factors, can also increase bruising. For this reason, strong blood-thinning drugs such as heparin and warfarin (Coumadin) can lead to excessive bruising. Warning : If youre taking these or other anticoagulant drugs and notice increased bruising, contact your doctor, as this situation could be dangerous. Aspirin or natural

Macrophages persist indefinitely at sites of spinal cord injury (SCI) and contribute to both pathological and reparative processes. While the alternative, anti-inflammatory (M2) phenotype is believed to promote cell protection, regeneration, and plasticity, pro-inflammatory (M1) macrophages persist after SCI and contribute to protracted cell and tissue loss. Thus, identifying non-invasive, clinically viable, pharmacological therapies for altering macrophage phenotype is a challenging, yet promising, approach for treating SCI. Azithromycin (AZM), a commonly used macrolide antibiotic, drives anti-inflammatory macrophage activation in rodent models of inflammation and in humans with cystic fibrosis. We hypothesized that AZM treatment can alter the macrophage response to SCI and reduce progressive tissue pathology. To test this hypothesis, mice (C57BL/6J, 3-month-old) received daily doses of AZM (160 mg/kg) or vehicle treatment via oral gavage for 3 days prior and up to 7 days after a moderate-severe
While bruises in and of themselves are not generally harmful, most of us would be happy to have them heal as quickly as possible.. One alternative remedy you can use for the treatment of bruises is arnica gel or arnica cream..

When applied as directed, topical arnica gel or cream can help relieve the pain and soreness of bruises as well as speed their healing.. This is especially helpful in the case of painful bruises, such as those which occur after receiving injections or intravenous medication.. Arnica gel can help relieve muscle soreness in children after receiving immunizations.. Arnica gel or cream can also be used to treat sore or stiff muscles. Many athletes use arnica products to help reduce muscle soreness and stiffness which occurs after exercise.. Some people also use arnica gel or cream on skin irritations and small wounds to prevent infection.. While ...
A contusion, commonly known as a bruise, is a type of hematoma of tissue in which capillaries and sometimes venules are damaged by trauma, allowing blood to seep, hemorrhage, or extravasate into the surrounding interstitial tissues. The bruise then remains visible until the blood is either absorbed by tissues or cleared by immune system action. Bruises, which do not blanch under pressure, can involve capillaries at the level of skin, subcutaneous tissue, muscle, or bone. Bruises are not to be confused with other similar-looking lesions primarily distinguished by their diameter or causation.[clarification needed] These lesions include petechia (< 3 mm result from numerous and diverse etiologies such as adverse reactions from medications such as warfarin, straining, asphyxiation, platelet disorders and diseases such as cytomegalovirus), purpura (3 mm to 1 cm, classified as palpable purpura or non-palpable purpura and indicates various pathologic conditions such as thrombocytopenia), and ecchymosis ...

After reviewing the literature, a drop-mass method was selected where a 201 g, elongated oval-shaped weight was dropped up to 15 times through a 1 m tube onto the left vastus lateralis of New Zealand white rabbits. To determine the extent of injury and degree of healing, biopsies were obtained six days after injury from the healing vastus lateralis of each animal. The tissue was fixed in formal saline, embedded in wax, cut and stained with haematoxylin and eosin (H&E) and phosphotungstic acid haematoxylin (PTAH) and examined by light microscopy (LM). The optimal injury was created after seven drops, where quite severe, mild and moderately severe trauma was caused to muscle in the juxta-bone, ...
About a week and a half ago I feel from about 12 feet and landed with one foot on a pad, and the other off of the pad with my heel (in a thin soled shoe) striking rock fairly hard. I had to sit down for about 20 minutes, but walked around all day with a limp. The pain has never been very bad, but it has been a week and a half and I still have a slight limp and some pain. Point tenderness is on the inside of my right heel, about an inch up from the bottom of my foot and an inch from the back of my ankle. I rubbed it and can feel either some very minor crepitus or simply tendons/ligaments rubbing, Im not sure. Do you think I have a broken heel or just a bone bruise? Should I just apply HIRICE and wear a compression wrap all day either way??. Thanks ...
The effects of transport time and location within the truck on skin bruises and meat quality of market weight pigs in two seasons were investigated by researchers in Canada.. In a paper in Canadian Journal of Animal Science, first-named author M.B. Scheeren of the Prairie Swine Centre and co-authors explain that they evaluated skin bruise score and meat quality in 384 pigs distributed across the top front (C1), top back (C4), middle front (C5) and bottom rear (C10) compartments of the truck. They evaluated the effects of season (winter versus summer), transport time (T: six, 12 and 18 hours) and truck compartment (C).. Bruise score was higher (P=0.01) in winter than in summer.. A T×C interaction was found for pHu value in the longissimus thoracis (LT) muscle and for drip loss in the LT and semimembranosus (SM) muscles; higher (P,0.001) pHu was recorded in the LT muscle and lower drip loss in the LT and SM muscles (P,0.001 and P=0.01, respectively) of pigs located in C10 following 18 hours of ...

Cerebral contusion, Latin contusio cerebri, a form of traumatic brain injury, is a bruise of the brain tissue. Like bruises in other tissues, cerebral contusion can be associated with multiple microhemorrhages, small blood vessel leaks into brain tissue. Contusion occurs in 20-30% of severe head injuries. A cerebral laceration is a similar injury except that, according to their respective definitions, the pia-arachnoid membranes are torn over the site of injury in laceration and are not torn in contusion. The injury can cause a decline in mental function in the long term and in the emergency setting may result in brain herniation, a life-threatening condition in which parts of the brain are squeezed past parts of the skull. Thus treatment aims to prevent dangerous rises in intracranial pressure, the pressure within the skull. ...

If you dont want to get bruised, or if you suspect that bruises are indicative of some deeper danger, then kickboxing is not a good choice for you.. If the bruise is really deep (like a bone bruise) from a massive impact, you could get some permanent deformations that show you the bruise was there. I have bumpy shins from shin-on-shin clashes at karate. Its a merely cosmetic reminder.. The best way to harden the inner and outer thigh is to get kicked there in drills and in sparring, sometimes with the opponent wearing shinguards, sometimes not.

I have experienced an itch under the skin, usually in reaction to a bump or once a tight sleeve that had tightened on my arm. The itching causes me to scratch and when I took my blouse off I had a large bruise caused by the tight sleeve hem and aggravated by my scratching. I have just assumed this itch is my reaction to bleeding under the skin. I feel that as an itch. I have also had bruises(I had fallen) which after a while started to itch, then increased in itching until I have a large red area with some swelling and possible bumpiness, yet the bruise is totally gone. I put an antibiotic ointment on it, which helped a bit but it feels more like an allergic response to some degree. I might try some benedryl to see if that helps. But this itching after bruising has happened around 3 times now. I also noticed that when we had a very cold slight drizzle rain that hit fast and pinpoint drops, I experienced it more as a pain than as a wet sensation. Little pinpoints of needles like sensation by the ...
The role of the Rho/ROCK/PTEN signaling pathway in the regulation of astrocyte function for consolidation/stabilization of the synapse has not been thoroughly studied. In this study, the expression of phosphatase and tensin homolog deleted on chromosome 10 (PTEN) in GFAP-positive astrocytic processes in the ventral horns (VH) of the rat spinal cord has been evaluated in the normal condition and in a delayed period (30 days) after dosed contusion spinal cord injury (SCI) in caudal thoracic segments.

The most common proximate cause of ST elevation myocardial infarction is plaque rupture. There are risk factors for plaque rupture and triggers of plaque rupture. A full discussion regarding the chronic risk factors and acute triggers of ST elevation MI can be found in other chapters. While plaque rupture is the most common cause of ST segment elevation MI, other conditions can cause ST elevation and myocardial necrosis. In order to expeditiously treat an alternate underlying cause of myonecrosis, it is important to rapidly identify conditions other than plaque rupture that may also cause ST elevation and myonecrosis. Indeed, the management of some of these conditions might differ substantially from that of plaque rupture: cocaine induced STEMI would not be treated with beta-blockers, and myocardial contusion would not be treated with an antithrombin. ...

Bruises occur when you break small blood vessels underneath your skin. The dark mark is actually blood, very minor internal bleeding. Small bruises that are not painful require no real attention. You can continue training normally. They usually take 3 to 5 days to clear.. For bruises that are larger and painful, you will want to take it very easy and avoid contact to the area. Icing your shin immediately after you sustain the injury will help to prevent bruising. The faster you can get ice on your shin injury, the more it will help. When you ice your shin, put a paper towel down first, do not put ice directly on your skin. Ice for 20 minutes, then remove and let sit for 1 hour. Repeat as necessary. This will be helpful for the first couple days after sustaining the injury.. For severe shin bruising, allow no contact to the area. Let the bruising fully heal before you begin kicking again. Use ice as described above for the first couple days. After this, warm baths with epsom salts will be ...
The first study tested 10m potency Arnica (equivalent to a dilution of a whopping one part in 1,020,000!); the second used a 30c dilution. A total of about 25 subjects were enrolled in the two trials. In these unpleasant-sounding experiments, the subjects allowed themselves to be bruised on the inside of their forearms by a 2.3-pound (1,041 g) weight, which fell from about a foot and a half (44 cm) above the arm. Participants were given either Arnica or placebo before the experiment and then were bruised on one arm. Subsequently, they were given a second dose of whatever they had just received and were then followed for a period of 3 to 4 days. The goal was to see whether the bruises treated by Arnica got better faster than those treated by placebo. Researchers found a hint of benefit in the first study, but none in the second study. Unfortunately, the numbers of participants in each study were too small to allow for the results to have much statistical meaning.. Arnica has also been studied to ...
I recently noticed a bruise at the base of my penis, at top center after having oral sex. I did not know where it came from- nothing during the sex indicated to me it happened then, so I assumed it might have come from riding my motorcycle and being pushed into the tank. The next day I noticed a bit of soreness when I awoke with an erection, and the bruised area had a distinct, raised vein/blood vessel underneath it that was sensitive to the touch- very similar to a broken vessel one might get on the back of their hand, etc. But I also noticed a slight swelling on one side of my penis below the head, in what kind of looked like/felt like a broken vessel as well, but a bit more vague. This swelling/lump is also slightly noticeable when flaccid, but less so. The vein/vessel at the base with the visible bruising hurts when the penis is moved around when erect. This is giving me some concern as I have never had any problems with my penis or blood vessels in general, and they both bring about a ...
Many people get confused between a bruise and an ecchymosis. People often use both the terms interchangeably. Although bruise and ecchymosis are changes in skin color due to leakage of blood, they both are different. This difference is based on the mechanism of leakage of the blood.. A bruise occurs when there is any injury or trauma to the skin or any body part like blunt trauma. Due to the compressive forces exerted on the skin by the traumatic incident, the blood leaks from the blood vessels or capillaries and leads to the formation of a bruise. For example, if someone punches you in your face or eye, you develop a bruise.. But in ecchymosis, the bleeding from the blood vessels or capillaries occurs only due to an underlying disease or medical condition. If you happen to develop any abnormal discoloration on your skin without any trauma or injury, you need to think of ecchymosis and the causes of ecchymosis.. ...
