A collection of blood outside the BLOOD VESSELS. Hematoma can be localized in an organ, space, or tissue.
Accumulation of blood in the EPIDURAL SPACE between the SKULL and the DURA MATER, often as a result of bleeding from the MENINGEAL ARTERIES associated with a temporal or parietal bone fracture. Epidural hematoma tends to expand rapidly, compressing the dura and underlying brain. Clinical features may include HEADACHE; VOMITING; HEMIPARESIS; and impaired mental function.
Accumulation of blood in the SUBDURAL SPACE between the DURA MATER and the arachnoidal layer of the MENINGES. This condition primarily occurs over the surface of a CEREBRAL HEMISPHERE, but may develop in the spinal canal (HEMATOMA, SUBDURAL, SPINAL). Subdural hematoma can be classified as the acute or the chronic form, with immediate or delayed symptom onset, respectively. Symptoms may include loss of consciousness, severe HEADACHE, and deteriorating mental status.
Accumulation of blood in the SUBDURAL SPACE with delayed onset of neurological symptoms. Symptoms may include loss of consciousness, severe HEADACHE, and deteriorating mental status.

The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.
Increased intracellular or extracellular fluid in brain tissue. Cytotoxic brain edema (swelling due to increased intracellular fluid) is indicative of a disturbance in cell metabolism, and is commonly associated with hypoxic or ischemic injuries (see HYPOXIA, BRAIN). An increase in extracellular fluid may be caused by increased brain capillary permeability (vasogenic edema), an osmotic gradient, local blockages in interstitial fluid pathways, or by obstruction of CSF flow (e.g., obstructive HYDROCEPHALUS).

Dissecting intramural haematoma of the oesophagus. (1/1119)

The largest series of patients (n = 10) with dissecting intramural haematoma of the oesophagus is described. The typical features, chest pain with odynophagia or dysphagia and minor haematemesis are usually present but not always elicited at presentation. If elicited, these symptoms should suggest the diagnosis and avoid mistaken attribution to a cardiac origin for the pain. Precipitating factors such as a forced Valsalva manoeuvre cannot be identified in at least half the cases. Early endoscopy is safe, and confirms the diagnosis when an haematoma within the oesophageal wall or the later appearances of a longitudinal ulcer are seen. Dissecting intramural haematoma of the oesophagus has an excellent prognosis when managed conservatively.  (+info)

Intimal tear without hematoma: an important variant of aortic dissection that can elude current imaging techniques. (2/1119)

BACKGROUND: The modern imaging techniques of transesophageal echocardiography, CT, and MRI are reported to have up to 100% sensitivity in detecting the classic class of aortic dissection; however, anecdotal reports of patient deaths from a missed diagnosis of subtle classes of variants are increasingly being noted. METHODS AND RESULTS: In a series of 181 consecutive patients who had ascending or aortic arch repairs, 9 patients (5%) had subtle aortic dissection not diagnosed preoperatively. All preoperative studies in patients with missed aortic dissection were reviewed in detail. All 9 patients (2 with Marfan syndrome, 1 with Takayasu's disease) with undiagnosed aortic dissection had undergone >/=3 imaging techniques, with the finding of ascending aortic dilatation (4.7 to 9 cm) in all 9 and significant aortic valve regurgitation in 7. In 6 patients, an eccentric ascending aortic bulge was present but not diagnostic of aortic dissection on aortography. At operation, aortic dissection tears were limited in extent and involved the intima without extensive undermining of the intima or an intimal "flap." Eight had composite valve grafts inserted, and all survived. Of the larger series of 181 patients, 98% (179 of 181) were 30-day survivors. CONCLUSIONS: In patients with suspected aortic dissection not proven by modern noninvasive imaging techniques, further study should be performed, including multiple views of the ascending aorta by aortography. If patients have an ascending aneurysm, particularly if eccentric on aortography and associated with aortic valve regurgitation, an urgent surgical repair should be considered, with excellent results expected.  (+info)

Primary percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty performed for acute myocardial infarction in a patient with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. (3/1119)

A 72-year-old female with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) complained of severe chest pain. Electrocardiography showed ST-segment depression and negative T wave in I, aVL and V4-6. Following a diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), urgent coronary angiography revealed 99% organic stenosis with delayed flow in the proximal segment and 50% in the middle segment of the left anterior descending artery (LAD). Subsequently, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) for the stenosis in the proximal LAD was performed. In the coronary care unit, her blood pressure dropped. Hematomas around the puncture sites were observed and the platelet count was 28,000/mm3. After transfusion, electrocardiography revealed ST-segment elevation in I, aVL and V1-6. Urgent recatheterization disclosed total occlusion in the middle segment of the LAD. Subsequently, PTCA was performed successfully. Then, intravenous immunoglobulin increased the platelet count and the bleeding tendency disappeared. A case of AMI with ITP is rare. The present case suggests that primary PTCA can be a useful therapeutic strategy, but careful attention must be paid to hemostasis and to managing the platelet count.  (+info)

Hemorrhage after an acute ischemic stroke.MAST-I Collaborative Group. (4/1119)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Hemorrhagic transformation is frequently seen on CT scans obtained in the subacute phase of ischemic stroke. Its prognostic value is controversial. METHODS: We analyzed 554 patients with acute ischemic stroke enrolled in the Multicenter Acute Stroke Trial-Italy (MAST-I) study in whom a second CT scan was performed on day 5. Presence of 1) intraparenchymal hemorrhages (hematoma or hemorrhagic infarction), 2) extraparenchymal bleeding (intraventricular or subarachnoid) and 3) cerebral edema (shift of midline structure, sulcal effacement or ventricular compression) alone or in association were evaluated. Death or disability at 6 months were considered as "unfavorable outcome." RESULTS: Patients who developed intraparenchymal hemorrhages, extraparenchymal bleeding, or cerebral edema had unfavorable outcome (83%, 100%, and 80%, respectively), but multivariate analysis demonstrated that only extraparenchymal bleeding (collinearity) and cerebral edema (OR=6.8; 95% CI, 4.5 to 10.4) were significant independent prognostic findings. Unfavorable outcome correlated with size of intraparenchymal hemorrhage (chi2 for trend=30.5, P<0.0001). Nevertheless, when a large hematoma was present the negative effect was mostly due to concomitant extraparenchymal bleeding (chi2=51.6, P<0.0001), and when hemorrhagic infarction was detected the negative effect was mostly explained by the association with cerebral edema (chi2=36.6, P<0.0001). CONCLUSIONS: Extraparenchymal bleeding and cerebral edema are the main prognostic CT scan findings in the subacute phase of ischemic stroke. Stroke patients with a high risk for developing these 2 types of brain damage should be identified. Measures to prevent and adequately treat their development should be implemented.  (+info)

Clinical and neuroradiological features of intracranial vertebrobasilar artery dissection. (5/1119)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We sought to determine the clinical and neuroradiological features of intracranial vertebrobasilar artery dissection. METHODS: The clinical features and MR findings of 31 patients (20 men and 11 women) with intracranial vertebrobasilar artery dissections confirmed by vertebral angiography were analyzed retrospectively. The vertebral angiography revealed the double lumen sign in 11 patients (13 arteries) and the pearl and string sign in 20 patients (28 arteries). RESULTS: The patients ranged in age from 25 to 82 years (mean, 54.8 years). Clinical symptoms due to ischemic cerebellar and/or brain stem lesions were common, but in 3 cases the dissections were discovered incidentally while an unrelated disorder was investigated. Headache, which has been emphasized as the only specific clinical sign of vertebrobasilar artery dissection, was found in 55% of the patients. Intramural hematoma on T1-weighted images has been emphasized as a specific MR finding. The positive rate of intramural hematoma was 32%. Double lumen on 3-dimensional (3-D) spoiled gradient-recalled acquisition (SPGR) images after the injection of contrast medium was identified in 87% of the patients. The 3-D SPGR imaging method is considered useful for the screening of vertebrobasilar artery dissection. CONCLUSIONS: Intracranial vertebrobasilar artery dissection is probably much more frequent than previously considered. Such patients may present no or only minor symptoms. Neuroradiological screening for posterior circulation requires MR examinations, including contrast-enhanced 3-D SPGR. Angiography may be necessary for the definite diagnosis of intracranial vertebrobasilar artery dissection because the sensitivity of the finding of intramural hematoma is not satisfactory.  (+info)

Localization of a bone imaging agent in a calcified hematoma. (6/1119)

A patient with chronic renal failure and secondary hyperparathyroidism had iliac bone biopsy. The procedure was complicated by a soft-tissue hematoma, which had calcified. A 3-4-cm palpable mass was visible in the lower left abdominal wall. Intense uptake of 99mTc-HMDP corresponded with the location of the calcified hematoma in this patient.  (+info)

Progression of mass effect after intracerebral hemorrhage. (7/1119)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: While the evolution of mass effect after cerebral infarction is well characterized, similar data regarding intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) are scant. Our goal was to determine the time course and cause for progression of mass effect after ICH. METHODS: Patients with spontaneous supratentorial ICH who underwent >/=2 CT scans were identified in our prospectively collected database. CT lesion size and midline shift of the pineal and septum pellucidum were retrospectively measured and correlated with clinical and CT characteristics. Causes for increased midline shift were determined by 2 independent observers. RESULTS: Seventy-six patients underwent 235 scans (3.1+/-1.3 per patient). Initial CT was obtained within 24 hours of ICH in 66. Twenty-five scans were repeated on day 1, 80 on days 2 through 7, 31 on days 8 through 14, and 24 >14 days after ICH. Midline shift was present on 88% of the initial scans. There were 17 instances of midline shift progression: 10 occurred early (0.2 to 1.7 days) and were associated with hematoma enlargement, and 7 occurred late (9 to 21 days) and were associated with edema progression. Progression of mass effect due to edema occurred with larger hemorrhages (P<0.05). Of 65 scans repeated for clinical deterioration, only 10 were associated with increased mass effect. CONCLUSIONS: Progression of mass effect after ICH occurred at 2 distinct time points: within 2 days, associated with hematoma enlargement, and in the second and third weeks, associated with increase in edema. The clinical significance of later-developing edema is unclear.  (+info)

Massive subependymal hemorrhage caused by an occult vascular malformation--two case reports. (8/1119)

Two patients presented with massive subependymal hemorrhage caused by vascular anomalies occult to angiography, computed tomography (CT) scanning, and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. A 47-year-old male initially presented with a headache and became comatose 3 weeks later. CT and MR imaging demonstrated a massive hematoma in the right caudate head projecting into the lateral ventricle. A 60-year-old male sustained heaviness of his left extremities 8 days prior to admission and his condition gradually deteriorated. Neuroimaging revealed a right thalamic hematoma adjacent to the lateral ventricle. Cerebral angiography, CT, and MR imaging failed to detect any vascular anomaly. The hematomas increased in size gradually and were surgically explored. The histological diagnosis was arteriovenous malformation for the first case and cavernous angioma for the second case that had ruptured repeatedly. These cases were unique in the unusual location in the subependyma, and diagnostic neuroimaging modalities could not disclose the vascular anomalies, and the hematomas enlarged progressively to become critically symptomatic. Surgical intervention is mandatory for mass reduction and correct diagnosis of such lesions, with favorable outcome as long as the surgery is not delayed until too late.  (+info)

Therefore, the impact of BP changes and course on HG and clinical outcome in patients with acute ICH was determined. Methods: In total, 117 consecutive patients with acute (,6 h) supratentorial ICH underwent baseline and 24-h CT scans, CT angiography for the detection of the spot sign and non-invasive BP monitoring at 15-min intervals over the first 24 h. Maximum and minimum BP, maximum BP ...
Following joint hemorrhages, intramuscular hemorrhages are the second most prevalent bleeding pattern in hemophiliac patients. Hematomas of the iliopsoas muscle are a well-known complication of hemophilia; however, obturator muscle hematomas are rare. We herein report a case of spontaneous bleeding of the bilateral external obturator muscles, which occured three times within a period of 9 months in a hemophilia patient with factor VIII inhibitors. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first published case of an obturator externus muscle hematoma in hemophilia. In addition to hip hemarthrosis, iliopsoas hematomas and acute appendicitis, obturator muscle hematoma should be considered as one of the diagnostic alternatives for pelvic pain in hemophilia. patients. Magnetic resonance imaging enables rapid diagnosis of obturator muscle hematoma. ...

Y1 - 2018/2. N2 - BACKGROUND: Free tissue transfer has become a safe and reliable means for repairing soft tissue and bony defects of the head and neck region. Although the success rate is high, the incidence of postoperative complications is common. One significant complication is postoperative hematoma formation. However, few published studies have addressed its incidence, etiology, or outcome. We performed a retrospective analysis to investigate this issue.METHODS: A retrospective review was conducted of 293 consecutive microvascular free tissue transfers in the head and neck region in a single institute from January 2013 to December 2015. Patients with postoperative hematoma were identified, and demographic data, perioperative conditions, medications, and outcomes were evaluated by chart review.RESULTS: A ...

Methods and Results-Patients with acute aortic syndromes in the International Registry of Acute Aortic Dissection (1996-2011) were evaluated to examine differences between patients (based on the initial imaging test) with IMH or classic dissection (AD). Of 2830 patients, 178 had IMH (64 type A [42%], 90 type B ...
Seventy cases of intracerebral hematomas were analysed, forty-six of spontaneous origin and remainder of traumatic one, which had been experienced in Seoul National University Hospital between March, 1970 and June, 1975. The results were as follows: A. Among forth-six cases of spontaneous intracerebral hematomas, twenty-six cases(52%) were primary intracerebral hematomas, normotensive or hypertensive, seven aneurismal ruptures(15%), seven arteriovenous malformations(15%), two cerebral rete mirabilies, one tumor bleeding, one leukemia, one idiopathic thrombocytopenic and one due to other blood dyscrasia. 1. Among twenty-six cases of primary intracerebral hematomas, angiography was performed in all and fourteen cases were operated. The sites of hemorrhage were as follows: a. Putaminal hemorrhage:17 cases(65%)(two cases associated with intraventricular hematoma). b. Thalamic hemorrhage:5 cases(19%)(two cases associated with intraventricular hematoma). c. Subcortical hemorrhage:4 cases(16%). 2. ...

AU - Heros, Roberto. PY - 2008/12/1. Y1 - 2008/12/1. N2 - Object. The management of non-life threatening spontaneous intraparenchymal hemorrhage with no obvious medical etiology in patients and the lack of findings on images has not been clearly defined. In general, the current practice is to treat these patients conservatively and repeat studies to rule out a treatable cause 6 weeks to 3 months later; more often than not these repeated studies fail to reveal any findings, and the patient is treated conservatively. For years, the senior author (R.C.H.) has treated these patients with early surgical exploration. This study was undertaken prospectively to ascertain the frequency of positive findings during surgical exploration. Methods. Between 2000 and 2007, the authors prospectively collected data from 9 cases (4 ...
Post-admission hematoma expansion in patients with intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) comprises a simultaneous major clinical problem and a possible target for medical intervention. In any case, the ability to predict and observe hematoma expansion is of great clinical importance. We review radiological concepts in predicting and observing post-admission hematoma expansion. Hematoma expansion can be observed within the first 24 h after symptom onset, but predominantly occurs in the early hours. Thus capturing markers of on-going bleeding on imaging techniques could predict hematoma expansion. The spot sign observed on computed tomography angiography is believed to represent on-going bleeding and is to date the most well investigated and reliable radiological predictor of hematoma expansion as well as functional outcome and mortality. On non-contrast CT, the presence of foci of hypoattenuation within the hematoma along with the hematoma-size is reported to be predictive of hematoma expansion and ...

AU - Hirsch, Alan T.. AU - Harris, Kevin M.. PY - 2007/11/1. Y1 - 2007/11/1. N2 - Background: Differing diagnostic frequencies and management strategies for intramural hematoma (IMH) have been described in North American (NA)/European and Japanese/Korean studies. Methods: All publications including type-A aortic IMH were reviewed for details on patient demographics, treatment strategy, and clinical outcomes. Publications were stratified by the geographic region (NA/Europe or Japan/Korea). Results: IMH, as a percentage of aortic dissection, occurs more frequently in Japan/Korea versus NA/Europe (31.7% vs 10.9%, P , .0001). The proportion of patients treated with early medical therapy is greater in Japanese/Korean studies (77.9% vs 48.8% in NA/Europe, P , .0001). However, the overall mortality is significantly lower in ...
This distinction is vitally important. The pregnancy loss rate ranges from 7.7% for small hematoma to over 18.8% for large hematomas. For moderate sized hematomas, the loss rate is about 9.2%. In other words, women with small and moderate hematomas are not at an increased risk of pregnancy loss compared to the average pregnant woman, and small and moderate hematomas (or misdiagnosis) accounts for most ultrasonographic diagnoses of hematomas.. The actual measured impact on miscarriage rate (and potential preterm delivery rate or abruption rate) varies widely in studies. Some data sets indicate no increased risk of miscarriage whatsoever, while others record significantly higher rates of miscarriage. The likely explanation of this difference is the size of the hematoma. Older data indicated higher rates of miscarriage, and this older data showed lower rates of subchorionic hematoma.

Gastric hematoma is a rare disorder. Here we report a case of a large gastric intramural hematoma mimicking an impending rupture of a visceral artery aneurysm. A 60-year-old Japanese woman complained of left flank pain. Computed tomography with intravenously administered contrast agent showed a solid mass of 5 × 5 × 8 centimeter in the left middle abdominal quadrant. On completion of computed tomography, the working diagnosis was an impending rupture of an aneurysm located in a branch of the superior mesenteric artery. Transcatheter arterial embolization was performed, but angiography of the superior mesenteric artery and the inferior mesenteric artery did not indicate extravasation of the contrast agent and we did not observe any aneurysmal structure. We decided to perform surgery. The operational findings revealed that the mass was a gastric intramural hematoma. On encountering an intra-abdominal mass found to be attached to a gastric wall, a gastric intramural hematoma should be considered.
OBJECTIVE: Early hematoma expansion is a known cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). The goal of this study was to identify clinical predictors of ICH growth in the acute stage.. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We studied 201 patients with acute (,6h) deep ganglionic ICH. Patients underwent CT scan at baseline and hematoma expansion (,33% or ,12.5ml increase) was determined on the second scan performed within 24h. Fourteen clinical and neuroimaging variables (age, gender, GCS at admission, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, kidney disease, stroke, hemorrhagic, antiplatelet use, anticoagulant use, hematoma density heterogeneity, hematoma shape irregularity, hematoma volume and presence of IVH) were registered. Additionally, blood pressure was registered at initial systolic BP (i-SBP) and systolic BP 1.5h after admission (1.5h-SBP). The discriminant value of the hematoma volume and 1.5h-SBP for hematoma expansion were determined by the receiver operating ...
Vaginal Wall Hematoma: Hi all, Anyone experience a vaginal wall hematoma after delivery? And if youve had 2nd, 3rd babies etc did you experience one again? - BabyCenter Australia
Mycotic aneurysms are produced by an infected embolus from vegetations on the heart valves in bacterial endocarditis, which breaks off and lodges in the cerebral blood vessels. The wall of the embolized vessel becomes infected, invasion by inflammatory cells and necrosis of the wall are often followed by rupture and formation of a aneurysmal sac. These aneurysms are very are in incidence and are usually located more peripherally in the vascular tree than berry aneurysms, are more irregular in shape and are not necessarily located at bifurcations. Recently we experienced a case of mycotic aneurysm with intracerebral hematoma which had developed in a subacute bacteria endocarditis patient. The patient was 44 years old male patient with dilated right pupil and left hemiplegia. He was treated surgically by evacuation of intracerebral hematoma and excision of mycotic aneurysm. We also experienced another case of mycotic aneurysm with intracerebral hematoma in 17 years old male patient who had been ...
Thirty-four hematomas occurred after nonstent strategies (balloon only in 25 and rotablator with or without adjunct balloon in 9). In the nonstented group, the hematoma was located only within the lesion in 38% of patients (13 of 34), in both the lesion and the reference in 41% of patients (14 of 34), and only within the reference artery in 21% of patients (7 of 34). In the nonstented group, 9 of 34 hematomas were proximal and 12 of the 34 hematomas were distal to the lesion. Thirty-eight hematomas were detected after stenting. In the stented lesions, all hematomas were located at the edge of the stent (distal edge in 55% [21 of 38] and proximal edge in 45% [17 of 38]). Thus, overall, combining nonstent and stent interventions, 36% of the hematomas (26 of 72) involved the proximal reference artery, 18% (13 of 72) were confined to the lesion, and 46% (33 of 72) involved the distal reference artery. The location of the largest hematoma was in a normal segment of artery in 18% (13 of 72), at the ...
Did you know that the warning signs of an intracranial hematoma, which is a potentially life-threatening brain injury, can take several weeks to surface? When you receive a direct blow to the head or you are in a vehicle that abruptly stops, you could sustain a serious head injury.. An intracranial hematoma is known to occur from a car accident, semi truck accident, motorcycle crash and slip and fall accident. It is characterized by a ruptured blood vessel that can cause blood to fill in the brain or in between the brain and skull. As the pressure builds in the brain, so do the symptoms.. If you have a loved one who has been involved in a California accident, watch for physical, mental and emotional changes. Be aware that these changes can be subtle. Some of the symptoms of an intracranial hematoma include increased headaches, vomiting, tiredness, confusion, increased blood pressure and in severe cases, seizures and unconsciousness.. There is treatment available for an intracranial hematoma, ...
We have shown the importance of hematoma shape in predicting poor clinical outcome in ICH. Hematomas with an irregular shape were associated with both combined death and disability, and disability alone, at 90 days. Conversely, hematoma density was not associated with either of these outcomes.. The relationship between irregularity in shape of the hematoma and poor outcome has previously been shown to be associated with higher 30-day mortality in a study of 106 patients (P=0.006).7 The proposed mechanism was that irregular-shaped hematomas had a higher risk of hematoma growth, which is known to be associated with poor outcome in patients with ICH.10,11 Although growth seems to be the logical link between irregularity and poor outcome, there might be other factors involved. It is well recognized that ICH is a dynamic phenomenon3 and new bleeding occurring at the border of the hematoma could produce irregularity of shape. Irregular-shaped hematomas might also lead to more persisting inflammation ...

Accurate measurement of hematoma volume is clinically important because hematoma volume has been used widely to correlate with treatment strategy, functional outcome, and mortality. An inaccurately assessed hematoma volume would inevitably influence initial treatment decisions, resulting in an undesirable outcome.7 Precise hematoma volume assessment is also critical for clinical trials, in which hematoma volume change may be a surrogate end point.8. In this study, the ABC/2 formula demonstrated an overall 8.03 cm3 (16.38%) estimation error compared with 3D Slicer method. When grouping by hematoma size, percent deviation had no significant difference. Possibly, estimation error increased with hematoma volume at a similar speed. But when grouping by hematoma shape, percent deviation was significantly different. Estimation error was more common and of greater magnitude when hematoma shape was irregular or multilobular. Compared with hematoma size, estimation error of the ABC/2 formula correlated ...
To report our experience using a multilevel patient management algorithm to direct transarterial embolization (TAE) in managing spontaneous intramuscular hematoma (SIMH). From May 2006 to January 2014, twenty-seven patients with SIMH had been referred for TAE to our Radiology department. Clinical status and coagulation characteristics of the patients are analyzed. An algorithm integrating CT findings is suggested to manage SIMH. Patients were classified into three groups: Type I, SIMH with no active bleeding (AB); Type II, SIMH with AB and no muscular fascia rupture (MFR); and Type III, SIMH with MFR and AB. Type II is furthermore subcategorized as IIa, IIb and IIc. Types IIb, IIc and III were considered for TAE. The method of embolization as well as the material been used are described. Continuous variables are presented as mean ± SD. Categorical variables are reported as percentages. Technical success, clinical success, complications and 30-day mortality (d30 M) were analyzed.

BACKGROUND: Although pre-injury antithrombotic agents, including antiplatelets and anticoagulants, are historically associated with expansion of traumatic intraparenchymal hemorrhage (tIPH), the literature has poorly elucidated the actual risk of hematoma expansion on repeat computed tomography (CT). The objective is to determine the effect of antithrombotic agents on hematoma expansion in tIPH by comparing patients with and without pre-injury antithrombotic medication. METHODS: The volume of all tIPHs over a 5-year period at an academic Level 1 Trauma Center was measured retrospectively. The initial tIPH was divided into three equally-sized quantiles. The third tertile, representing the largest subset of tIPH, was then removed from the study population because these patients reflect a different pathophysiological mechanism that may require a more acute and aggressive level of care with reversal agents and/or operative management. Per institutional policy, all patients with small- to moderate-sized

N2 - The value of surgery for patients with intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) remains a topic of debate. Although several studies have been unable to prove the benefit of surgical intervention of ICH, there is available evidence to suggest that some patients may experience favorable outcome with surgery. Identifying optimal candidates and the timing of surgery for the treatment of ICH are crucial issues. Studies have explored the value of early and ultra-early surgical intervention, as well as the role of stereotactic hematoma evacuation. The International Surgical Trial in Intracerebral Hemorrhage suggested that favorable surgical outcome was more likely for patients with superficial hematomas, and patients who underwent craniotomy in the trial seemed to fare better than those treated with other surgical ...
i) Bleeding/hematoma formation/device erosion. The exact incidence of significant bleeding and hematoma is unknown. It is, however, estimated to be between 2.0% and 5.0%. In a systemic review of implantation related complications of ICDs and CRTs in randomized clinical trials, van Rees et al. reported the incidence of pocket hematoma in 2.2% of nonthoracotomy ICD recipients and 2.4% in the CRT recipients.. The true incidence of pocket hematoma, however, more than likely is higher as most randomized trials reported only those hematomas requiring evacuation and drainage. In a study by Wiegand et al., high-dose heparin, combined aspirin, and thienopyridine treatment after coronary stenting, and low operator experience were independent predictors with a hazard ratio [HR] of 4.2, 5.2, and 1.6, respectively, for development of postoperative hematoma.. Interestingly, in patients with atrial fibrillation, postoperative high-dose heparin substantially increased the hematoma rate without reducing the rate ...
Sublingual hematoma secondary to excessive anticoagulation is a rare but potentially fatal condition, and few cases have been documented in the literature. We report the case of a 73-year-old Caucasian woman who attended our Accident and Emergency department with massive sublingual hematoma causing superior displacement of the tongue. The condition was found to be the result of an elevated international normalized ratio, further complicated by a traumatic mandibular denture. In summary, we recommend the immediate reversal of anticoagulation therapy on admission of patients with severe sublingual hematoma. We further advise surgical decompression/drainage if required and to continue meticulous monitoring. In all cases of early recognition of sublingual hematoma, prompt medical treatment and continuous clinical monitoring is essential, and may prevent the need for a surgical airway procedure.

The main findings of this study were as follows: (1) long-term (10-year) clinical outcomes of type A IMH were favorable when the patients were treated with emergent surgery in complicated cases and otherwise supportive medical therapy with timely operation in cases with progression of hematoma; (2) occurrence of any relevant adverse clinical events after acute stage in medically treated patients was relatively low; and (3) the initial maximum aortic diameter was the strongest predictor for early and late progression of ascending IMH in medically treated patients.. There has been a controversy regarding the treatment of type A IMH. The most common therapeutic strategy for IMH has been the same as that for classic AD, because proximal location of IMH was considered an independent predictor of progression, contained rupture, or aneurysm formation.2,3,7,8 However, the evolution of type A IMH appears to be more benign than that of AD and studies from Asian countries reported low mortality rates in ...

Treatment of ear hematoma depends on how quickly the hematoma is diagnosed, the size of the hematoma and, oftentimes, your vets personal treatment preferences. There are several ways to treat cat ear hematoma. One popular surgery involves making an incision on the underside of the ear, draining the blood, and then suturing the ear. The ear may be bandaged or not. This procedure creates little scarring and carries little risk of hematoma recurrence. Another surgical option involves draining the blood and then taping the ear over a rolled bandaged to allow it time to heal. This procedure is often used in show cats, because it produces no scarring at all. However, this procedure requires more intensive post-op care to prevent infection and permanent disfigurement. If the hematoma is small or old, your vet might perform a needle aspiration. In this procedure, a syringe is used to remove the fluid. If there are no blood clots in the ear, it can be allow to heal without surgery. Some vets may also ...
The diabetic mice tended to have greater hematoma expansion than non-diabetic mice, which was as expected from this model of type 1 diabetes.. Injecting the PK inhibitor into diabetic rats resulted in a smaller hematoma spread. In diabetic mice that were engineered to not make the PK protein, hematoma expansion was lower than in diabetic mice that did make this protein.. To see whether the effects on hematoma expansion were dependent on high blood glucose levels (as found in diabetics), diabetic mice were injected with insulin to lower their blood glucose, before they were injected with PK. The large hematoma expansion that would have normally happened in these mice did not occur. In case the process of making the rats diabetic had affected their PK activity rather than the high glucose, the researchers injected non-diabetic rats with glucose to produce a spike of glucose in their blood stream. The hematoma expansion in these hyperglycaemic rats was found to be greater than in the control ...

INTRODUCTION. Even when performed with the proper technique, spinal anesthesia carries the risk of bleeding. Compression of the nervous tissue secondary to the formation of a hematoma can cause neurological damage 1,2, which, if not diagnosed and treated in a timely fashion, can result in permanent damage 3.. After regional anesthesia, bleeding disorders are the greatest risk factors for the development of spinal hematoma 2,3, although there are other known factors, such as difficult or traumatic insertion of the needle. Due to the lack of randomized clinical trials, the risk of hematoma is unknown in patients receiving antithrombotic treatment 4-6. Considering that the incidence of hematoma is extremely low, those studies would have to include a large number of patients, above 100,000, which is not feasible. The literature stresses the importance of monitoring the patient, especially taking into consideration that retrospective analysis demonstrated that the early diagnosis and surgical ...
Intraorbital haematoma is a rare clinical entity which can be caused by orbital traumas, neoplasms, surgeries nearby sinuses and orbit, vascular malformations, acute sinusitis, systemic abnormalities, barotrauma and valsalva maneuver. A 74-year-old male presented with sudden onset of ocular pain, upper eye lid swelling, proptosis and diplopia after a commercial flight. After complete ophthalmic ocular examination including pupillary light reflexes and laboratory examinations; computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of orbit revealed a subperiostal mass-like lesion in the right retrobulbar-extraconal region which was compatible with intraorbital haematoma. Visual acuity was not compromised so we planned a conservative approach with close observation. We administered systemic corticosteroid and topical dorzolamide/timolol combination therapy. At the first month follow-up, intraorbital haematoma resolved without significant sequelae. Intraorbital haematoma can be managed by conservative approach
Hemodynamic instability secondary to left atrial (LA) compression by an aortic aneurysm is a rare entity. We report the case of a 43-year old woman with no previous diagnosis of congestive heart failure who was admitted for an initial diagnosis of pulmonary embolism (PE) based on shortness of breath, hypotension and D-Dimers elevation. The electrocardiogram and blood counts were within normal limits. The chest X-ray revealed widening of the mediastinum. Transthoracic echocardiography demonstrated LA compression by a large descending thoracic aortic aneurysm. Left and right ventricle systolic functions were preserved. Chest angiography showed LA and left pulmonary artery (LPA) compression by a descending aortic aneurysm and an intramural hematoma with no evidence of PE evidence. Emergency surgery could not be done because of her financial status. She was treated medically and was discharged 1 week later with significant improvement. However she remained hypotensive.

A hematoma is caused by a break in the wall of a blood vessel. The break may be spontaneous, as in the case of an aneurysm, or caused by trauma. In the case of a minor or major blow to the effected part of the brain may lead to sudden death, other located hematomas that receive minor or major blows may cause some severe complications in the area of which it is in.The word hematoma came into usage around 1850. It was devised from Greek roots -- hemat-, referring to the blood + -oma, from soma meaning body = a bloody body, or a collection of blood.The many different kinds of hematomas are defined by location and include: epidural hematoma...
We saw the dr. today and he said I have a subchorionic hematoma. 2% of all pregnant women have these, but of pregnant women who beed during pregnancy that percentage increases to 30%. He said that is what caused the bleeding last week. What is left is the remainder. It is currently 3.5x3.5 cm. I still have a 50/50 chance of having a miscarriage. But he did say everything will probably be fine right after he said you are still in danger of a miscarriage. The chance of miscarriage from a subchorionic hematoma are greater by three things 1) age of mother, 2) age of baby 3) size of hematoma. The older the mom, the younger the baby and the bigger the hematoma the higher your chances of miscarriage. I have the age thing for me on my side. But for the baby I am considered in the danger zone until completion of week 13. You are also in greater danger as long as the hematoma is larger than the baby. Right now the baby is 2.1 cm and the hematoma is larger. But there is a strong heartbeat and the ...

Surgical treatment is often recommended for traumatic iliopsoas hematoma. Open surgeries lead to severe surgical trauma, and minimally invasive surgeries cannot completely remove the hematoma. A new treatment protocol for traumatic iliopsoas hematoma by retroperitoneoscopic approach has been introduced. The goal of this study was to determine the safety and efficacy of retroperitoneoscopic approach used to remove iliopsoas hematoma. Between January 2009 and July 2012, 13 patients were diagnosed of traumatic iliopsoas hematoma. Retroperitoneoscopic surgeries were performed on all patients to remove the hematomas after admission. The size of hematoma, VASA score and neurologic status were dynamic evaluated before and after surgery. Soft tissue damage and complications caused by retroperitoneoscopic approach also were recorded and evaluated. We performed retroperitoneoscopic surgery to remove traumatic iliopsoas hematoma successfully on 13 patients without complications. The mean procedure time was 52.5 ±
Introduction: A middle-aged male with a history of bilateral inguinal hernia repair was admitted for acute abdominal pain. The patient reported that he took prescribed hydrocodone and a saw palmetto supplement prior to surgery. He denied any recent trauma after the procedure, and he was unable to schedule a follow-up appointment with the surgeon or the primary care physician. Clinical Findings: Diagnosis: The CT angiography of the abdomen/pelvis was indicative of new interval development of a large left retroperitoneal hematoma. Intervention: No emergent intervention was required following the evaluation by the surgery and interventional radiology (IR) departments. Outcome: There was no evidence of overt bleeding over the 3-day hospital course, and his hemoglobin was within normal limits. The patient was stable for discharge as the hematoma would slowly absorb over the next 2 months. Conclusions: A retroperitoneal hematoma (RPH) has a multi-factorial etiology, such as endovascular procedures and
The specific clinical feature of tetanus is whole body muscle spasms. These spasms are intensely painful and sometime lead to some injuries. Vertebral fractures have been reported as a common complication of tetanus, however iliopsoas hematoma is a rare complication. We describe a case of iliopsoas hematoma in a tetanus patient who had not been treated with any anticoagulant or antiplatelet agents. A 72-year-old female patient was transferred to our hospital 7 days after the onset of tetanus. An iliopsoas hematoma was identified in her right iliopsoas muscle on computed tomography. There was no extravasation; thus, the hematoma improved with conservative therapy. There were no episodes that suggested a bleeding tendency, or no factors associated with hemorrhagic conditions. This is the first report of iliopsoas hematoma as a complication in a tetanus patient who did not received anticoagulation therapy. The possibility of IPH as a complication of tetanus should be considered before and during the
Retroperitoneal haematomas in obstetrics are uncommon. The causes and pathogenesis of retroperitoneal haematomas lack clarity and the aim of this review is to recognise retroperitoneal haematomas as a separate entity from commonly seen vaginal and pelvic haematomas. It is time to raise awareness among obstetricians to recognise retroperitoneal haematomas as an important cause of maternal morbidity and mortality which requires high clinical suspicion and multidisciplinary input. As retroperitoneal haematomas are rare but can cause serious threat to maternal wellbeing, resources should be directed towards their management ...
Mediastinal hematoma rarely occurs after a minor traffic injury. A woman in her forties was transferred to the emergency room by ambulance due to a traffic accident. Computed tomography (CT) revealed no abnormal findings, and she went home. Two days after the accident, the contrast-enhanced CT was repeated, which revealed cervical and mediastinal hematomas. Because it was possible that there was active bleeding from the right inferior thyroid artery, embolization of the right inferior thyroid artery was performed; however, her condition further deteriorated, so we performed emergency surgery to achieve hemostasis and remove the hematoma. Because of oozing from the right thyroid lobe, we performed right hemithyroidectomy and drainage of mediastinal space and right thoracic cavity. Since there was no bleeding site in the mediastinum, we thought that the mediastinal hematoma was due to bleeding from the thyroid gland. Her postoperative course was uneventful, and she is doing well at 9 months of follow-up
What is an extradural haematoma?. An extradural haematoma is a collection of blood in the epidural space. Extradural means outside the dura.. What causes an extradural haematoma?. Spinal extradural haematoma. A spinal extradural haematoma is less common than an intracranial extradural haematoma. Sometimes a spinal extradural haematoma can occur after trauma or an injury around the spinal area. For example, it can (rarely) occur after a lumbar puncture (a procedure where a sample of fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord is taken with a needle to help diagnose conditions such as meningitis). It may also (rarely) occur after an epidural anaesthetic (a common type of pain relief used during childbirth and for other reasons). Intracranial extradural haematoma. An extradural haematoma usually occurs inside the head, most commonly after a fractured skull caused by a head injury. The fractured skull bone can cause separation of the dura mater from the inside of the skull and can cause damage ...
Nasal septal hematoma is a condition affecting the nasal septum. It can be associated with trauma. Because the septal cartilage has no blood supply of its own and receives all of its nutrients and oxygen from the perichondrium, an untreated septal hematoma may lead to destruction of the septum. Immediate drainage is necessary. Failure to recognise septal hematomas, or treat in a timely fashion, can cause a saddle nose deformity. To treat a septal haematoma it is incised & drained to prevent avascular necrosis of the septal hyaline cartilage which depends on diffusion of nutrients from its attached nasal mucosa.

Acute airway obstruction (AAO) after anterior cervical fusion (ACF) can be caused by postoperative retropharyngeal hematoma, which requires urgent recognition and treatment. However, the causes, evaluation, and appropriate treatment of this complication are not clearly defined. The purpose of this retrospective review of a prospective database was to investigate etiologic factors related to the development of AAO due to postoperative hematoma after ACF and formulate appropriate prevention and treatment guidelines. Cervical spinal cases treated at our academic institutions from 1998 to 2013 were evaluated. Demographic data, including factors related to hemorrhagic tendency, and operative data were analyzed. Patients who developed a hematoma were compared with those who did not to identify risk factors. Cases complicated by hematoma were reviewed, and times until development of hematoma and surgical evacuation were determined. Degrees of airway compromise and patient behavior were classified and evaluated

INTRODUCTION: Spontaneous retroperitoneal hemorrhage is a distinct clinical entity that can present as a rare life-threatening event characterized by sudden onset of bleeding into the retroperitoneal space, occurring in association with bleeding disorders, intratumoral bleeding, or ruptures of any retroperitoneal organ or aneurysm. The spontaneous form is the most infrequent retroperitoneal hemorrhage, causing significant morbidity and representing a diagnostic challenge. CASE PRESENTATION: We report the case of a patient with coronary artery disease who presented with transient ischemic attack, in whom anticoagulant therapy with heparin precipitated a massive spontaneous atraumatic retroperitoneal hemorrhage (with international normalized ratio 2.4), which was treated conservatively. CONCLUSION: Delay in diagnosis is potentially fatal and high clinical suspicion remains crucial. Finally, it is a matter of controversy whether retroperitoneal hematomas should be surgically evacuated or ...

Discussion. The chronic intradiploic hematoma lesion was first described by Chorbski and Davis in 19341 and was named by Sato et al.2 To date, only 12 cases of chronic intradiploic hematoma have been reported in the literature.1-11 Other names found in the literature for intradiploic hematoma include non-neoplastic cyst of diploe, traumatic cyst, and giant cell repetitive granuloma.4,6,9,10,12. The exact pathogenesis of the intradiploic hematoma is not clear. However, chronic intradiploic hematomas associated with anticoagulant use, birth trauma, and shunt surgery have been reported. Moreover, acute hematomas in the various layers of the scalp and the skull usually resolve spontaneously.1 However, trauma can initiate bleeding in the diploic space. If the resulting diploic hematoma is not absorbed, the surrounding connective tissue usually encapsulates the hematoma and creates a cyst.1 The natural history of this connective tissue can show various stages of differentiation, i.e., fibrous tissue, ...
Spontaneous retropharyngeal haematoma is an unusual condition and difficult to diagnosis early especially in infants. It has multiple aetiological factors and can present to a number of specialists including the otolaryngologist. We describe an unusual case of a spontaneous huge retropharyngeal haematoma in 1-year-old male child which demonstrates the dramatic presentation and emphasizes the need for immediate surgical approach.
Intracranial hematomas, whatever its causes, represent an important disabling, and dreaded adults lesion. This brains condition has not well been studied in developing countries. The aim of our study is to overview the management of intracaranial hematomas in Abidjan. It is a retrospective analytical and descriptive study, involving patients who had been admitted and monitored by neurosurgeons for intracranial hematomas, documented in brain CT scan and had been operated on from 1 January 2007 to December 31, 2009 in Abidjan. These 30 patients were 23 men and 7 women. The average age was 58.6 years old. 90% of the patients were admitted with wakefulness issues. Half had a Glasgow score of less than 8. The brain scanner allowed identification of an intraparenchymal hematoma associated or not with a cerebral ventricle contamination in 28 patients. There were 18 external ventricle derivations with or without decompressive craniectomy and 12 independent decompressive craniectomy. The evolution was marked

Background and rationale Acute intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) results from rupture of cerebral vasculature leading to bleeding into the cerebral parenchyma. ICH represents 10-50% of stroke, depending on the population studied, is associated with significant morbidity and mortality, and has limited treatment options. The INTERACT2 trial was designed to assess the role of blood pressure lowering therapy in intracerebral haemorrhage. Guideline therapy (target systolic blood pressure [SBP] ,180 mmHg) was compared against intensive lowering (SBP ,140 mmHg). The outcomes assessed in this trial were death or major disability (according to the modified Rankin scale at 90 days) following ICH. Hyperglycaemia has been widely studied in acute illnesses as myocardial infarction, ischaemic stroke, traumatic brain injury and ICH, and is associated with adverse outcomes. The incidence of hyperglycaemia in the acute phase is due to a combination of factors: diabetic pathophysiology and stress hyperglycaemia. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Thermo-sensitive assembly of the biomaterial REP reduces hematoma volume following collagenase-induced intracerebral hemorrhage in rats. AU - Park, Joohyun. AU - Kim, Jong Youl. AU - Choi, Seong Kyoon. AU - Kim, Jae Young. AU - Kim, Jae Hwan. AU - Jeon, Won Bae. AU - Lee, Jong Eun. PY - 2017/8. Y1 - 2017/8. N2 - Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) frequently results in severe disabilities and high mortality. RGD-containing elastin-like polypeptide (REP), a modified elastin-like polypeptide (ELP), is a thermally responsive biopolymer. REP has high affinity for cells and is known to show non-immunotoxicity, -cytotoxicity, and -inflammatory responses. Here we found that administration of REP in the acute phase of the ICH rat model reduced the hematoma volume, decreased the number of activated microglia, attenuated the expression of von Willebrand Factor (vWF), and prevented the leakage of immunoglobulin G (IgG) into the cerebral parenchyma without any occlusion of intact microvessels. ...
Neck haematoma following thyroid surgery can present with respiratory distress which is generally attributed to airway obstruction. We recently had a 63-year-old female patient who underwent total thyroidectomy for toxic nodular goitre. However, within 4 hours of surgery, she developed sudden respiratory distress which was managed by prompt evacuation of the neck haematoma. Just before the haematoma evacuation, the patient had hypertension and bradycardia along with the distress. The arterial blood gas analysis sampled at that time was normal. Intraoperatively, the tracheal framework was found rigid and non-pliable. Considering the various clinical-biochemical findings observed, we think that the cause of the respiratory distress in the index case was transiently elevated intracranial pressure, secondary to bilateral internal jugular veins compression. We hypothesise that in many patients with immediate postoperative neck haematoma, the Cushings reflex would at least contribute partly, if not ...
Objectives: We sought to describe the frequency and location of headache in intracerebral hematoma (ICH) and to analyze its clinical and CT predictors by means of multivariate analysis. Background: Headache is more common in intracerebral hemorrhage than in ischemic stroke, and its frequency varies with hematoma location, but the pathophysiologic mechanisms of headache associated with ICH are not fully known. Methods: We examined a cohort of 289 patients with ICH during a 14-month period in a university hospital. Clinical, including the presence and location of headache, and CT features were collected by two neurologists. Results: One hundred and sixty-five (57%) patients with ICH had a headache at the onset of their stroke. Headache was more common in cerebellar and lobar hemorrhages than in deep ones (thalamic, caudate, capsuloputaminal, brainstem). Headache was also more common in women, patients younger than 70 years, those who vomited, and those with meningeal signs, a Glasgow Coma Scale ...

AU - Wityk, Robert J.. PY - 2003/7. Y1 - 2003/7. N2 - Impaired platelet function has been associated with an increased propensity for intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). The role of platelet count and dysfunction in spontaneous ICH (SICH) is poorly understood. We tested the hypotheses that patients with SICH have subtle platelet dysfunction associated with ICH progression and larger ICH size. In a retrospective case series, we compared platelet counts in patients with SICH with age-matched controls with neuromuscular disorders admitted to a Neurosciences Critical Care Unit (NCCU). In a subset of patients, platelet function was measured within one week of ICH. Computerized tomography (CT) scans were performed within 24 hours of the event and ICH volume determined by the ABC/2 method. Comparison of 43 patients ...
Twenty-two patients who had evidence of spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage in brain computerized tomographic(CT) scan specially with small vascular malformations who were angiographically verified and unknown causes, were reviewed. The majority of patients were in first and second decades of life. The duration of symptoms from onset to admission showed relatively short in verified cases and even distributed from 1 day to 1 month in unknown cases. The most common presenting symptoms and signs were headache and papilledema in unknown cases. In brain CT scan, variable findings were seen as hematoma with surrounding eidence of vascular anomaly, hematoma only and blood-fluid level in verified cases, and tumor-like findings in unknown cases. The most common site of hematoma were parietal and occipital lobes in verified cases and were parietal and infratentorial area in unknown cases. The results achieved with excision of these cases were good. These small vascular malformations require special ...

Several studies on the effects of statin administration in patients with intracerebral hemorrhage have been published recently, but the findings are inconsistent. Aim: To evaluate the effects of statins administered prior to hospital admission and during hospitalization on mortality and functional outcomes in patients with intracerebral hemorrhage. Summary of review: We searched for relevant literature using multiple comprehensive databases and performed a systematic review and meta-analysis. Sixteen studies met our selection criteria. Preintracerebral hemorrhage statin use was not associated with ...
Background: Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is the most fatal subtype of stroke. Despite limited effective therapy, there is no accepted clinical grading scale to predict in- hospital mortality, especially in developing nations. The purpose of this study was to assess the predictors of in- hospital mortality among a sample of Iranian patients with spontaneous ICH for use at the time of the first evaluation.Methods: This prospective study was carried from January 2010 to the end of January 2011. Demographic, clinical, and laboratory data of ICH patients were collected. Hematoma volume and perihematoma edema (PHE) were measured on brain computed tomography scan using ABC/2 formula. Logistic regression analysis was performed to determine independent variables contributing to in- hospital mortality.Results: Of a total 167 consecutive ICH patients, 98 patients met inclusion criteria. Mean ± standard deviation age of patients was 70.16 ± 12.52.
Penetrating atherosclerotic ulcer is characterized by ulceration that penetrates through the elastic lamina into the media, and is associated with a variable amount of haematoma within the aortic wall. Haematoma formation may extend along the media, resulting in aortic dissection. In some cases, haematoma extension causes stretching of the weakened aortic wall, leading to the formation of a saccular aneurysm. Rupture is an eventual outcome. This entity has to be distinguished from atheromatous ulcers that are confined to the intima layer, aneurysms and classic aortic dissection. Although they typically involve the descending thoracic aorta (mostly the middle or distal portion), penetrating atherosclerotic ulcers can also involve the abdominal aorta and seldom are multiple. Typical CT features of penetrating ulcers include focal involvement with adjacent subintimal haematoma located beneath the frequently calcified and inwardly displaced intima, often associated with thickening or enhancement of ...
Hematoma formation ia a common injury in athletics involving physical contact. In martial arts it usually results from a blow or kick to a soft area. A hematoma is a collection of blood in a area near an injury. Bleeding from the injured tissue collects in one place pushing other tissue away, forming a pocket of blood. The primary goal of treating hematoma is aimed at stopping any more bleeding, then absorbing the blood that has already collected. Immediately applying pressure & ice to the injured area will help stop further bleeding & reduce swelling. An elastic wrap applied with an ice pack incorporated into the wrapping accomplishes both purposes. Large hematomas are best treated by puncturing the wound with a needle, but this should only be done by a physician under strict steril conditions. After pressure & ice have been applied the site should be protected from any further injury until the healing process is complete. Dicolouration of the skin may be extensive during the healing process & ...

A hematoma (US spelling) or haematoma (UK spelling) is a localized collection of blood outside the blood vessels, due to either disease or trauma including injury or surgery and may involve blood continuing to seep from broken capillaries. A hematoma is initially in liquid form spread among the tissues including in sacs between tissues where it may coagulate and solidify before blood is reabsorbed into blood vessels. An ecchymosis is a hematoma of the skin larger than 10mm. They may occur among/within many areas such as skin and other organs, connective tissues, bone, joints and muscle. A collection of blood (or even a hemorrhage) may be aggravated by anticoagulant medication (blood thinner). Blood seepage and collection of blood may occur if heparin is given via an intramuscular route; to avoid this, heparin must be given intravenously or subcutaneously. It is not to be confused with hemangioma, which is an abnormal buildup/growth of blood vessels in the skin or internal organs. Some hematomas ...

Background: Bilateral Intracranial hematoma is an uncommon sequela of closed head injury. Approach to this complicated problem is poorly defined. The present study tries to find out the incidence, and possible markers for the earlier detection of the problem.Materials and Methods: In this descriptive study all head trauma patients undergoing surgical decompression from September 2006 to October 2008 in Kashan Beheshti Hospital, were included. Cases were studied for age, sex, cause of trauma, skull fracture, Glasgow Coma Scale Score, pre-operative CT findings, and the number of surgical procedures. Using SPSS software, the obtained data was analyzed through descriptive statistics, Chi Square and t-test.Results: During a 24-month period, for 96 admitted patients with traumatic injuries, 121 surgical procedures were performed. Due to the hematomas, 73 (75.3) and 23 (24.7) cases had one and more than one surgical operation, respectively. In addition, the age range was between 6 months and 83 years ...

Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) causes 10% to 15% of first-ever strokes, with a 30-day mortality rate of 35% to 52% with only 20% expected to be functionally independent at 6 months. No medical or surgical interventions have been found to alter the natural evolution of this disease. The high risk for mortality and poor outcomes seems to occur despite relatively small hematoma volumes and small amounts of neuronal tissue at risk for injury. The reasons for this observation remain unknown; however perihematomal edema formation and inflammation that follows ICH seems to play an important role.. The Simvastatin for Intracerebral Hemorrhage Study is a prospective double blinded placebo controlled randomized (1:1) clinical trial that compares outcomes in patients receiving generic simvastatin 80 mg for 14 days or until death or discharge with patients in the placebo group.. The hypothesis for our study is that statins ameliorate perihematomal edema evolution thereby reducing mortality and improving ...

We report a case of a falcotentorial meningioma accompanied by hematoma in the temporal lobe. A healthy 51 year-old-female with no history of hypertension presented with sudden onset of consciousness disturbance and right hemiparesis. Computed tomography revealed a hematoma 5.5 cm in diameter surrounded by thick edematous brain in the left temporal lobe and a tumor 3.5 cm in diameter in the pineal region. Bilateral carotid angiography detected occlusion of the Galenic vein and straight sinus. No causative abnormality of hemorrhage was apparent. However, the left basal vein of Rosenthal had disappeared, and anastomotic venous channels could be observed in the medial left temporal lobe, contiguous to the hematoma. Emergency craniotomy failed to detect any abnormality which could cause hemorrhage in the brain parenchyma surrounding the hematoma. Subtotal removal of the tumor, histologically diagnosed as fibrous meningioma, was achieved three months later employing an occipital transtentorial ...
