Bilateral rupture of the patellar tendon is a rare injury. A case of a 67-year-old man with systemic lupus erythematosus under corticosteroid treatment for the last 10 years, who sustained spontaneous rupture of the patellar tendon and the contralate
The patient was a 69-year-old man brought to the emergency room with severe chest pain. A contrast chest CT scan revealed a hematoma around the ascending aorta and a notch in the aortic wall, suggesting an intimal tear. An emergency operation was performed via standard median sternotomy under deep hypothermic circulatory arrest. Upon operation, there was a 2.0cm intimal tear just above the right coronary leaflet, which was extended near the right coronary artery orifice. There was no specific evidence of aortic aneurysm or dissection, therefore a spontaneous rupture of the ascending aorta was diagnosed. The pathological finding was cystic medial necrosis Grade 2. His postoperative course was unremarkable and he was discharged 12 days after surgery ...

To investigate the role of infrasound aortic pressure waves (IPW) in atherosclerotic plaque rupture. Atherosclerotic plaques have been simulated partly, in two dimensions, as being short or long Conical Intersections (CIS), that is to say ellip
Methods and Results-Atherosclerotic plaque rupture was induced by carotid artery ligation for 4 weeks followed by polyethylene cuff placement around the carotid in apolipoprotein E (ApoE)−/− and ApoE−/− AT1a−/− mice. The incidence of plaque rupture at 4 days after cuff placement was 72% in ApoE−/− mice compared with 24% in ApoE−/− AT1a−/− mice (P,0.01). Lipid accumulation, macrophage infiltration, expression of inflammatory cytokines, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate-oxidase activity, and matrix metalloproteinase-9 activity in atherosclerotic plaque were markedly attenuated in ApoE−/− AT1a−/− compared with ApoE−/− mice. Oxidized low-density lipoprotein inhibited macrophage migration in ApoE−/− macrophages. In contrast, oxidized low-density lipoprotein-induced macrophage trapping was abolished in ApoE−/− AT1a−/− macrophages, and this was associated with decreased CD36 expression and focal adhesion kinase activity.. ...

Rupture of the spleen is most commonly seen soon after blunt trauma to the abdomen or lower ribs. Iatrogenic splenic injuries are thought to be responsible for up to 40% of all splenectomies performed [1].. Spontaneous splenic rupture is uncommon but probably under-diagnosed in the absence of trauma [2]. Such splenic rupture may be classified as either "pathological" in the presence of underlying disease or "spontaneous" if normal [2, 3]. There is debate as to whether this entity exists or whether rupture always occurs in the presence of undiagnosed disease.. Classically patients may present with symptoms of pain, tenderness and guarding of the left upper quadrant and hypovolaemic shock [4]. Left-shoulder tip pain, particularly when lying flat (Kehrs sign), is caused by blood irritating the left hemi-diaphragm and is said to be present in 50% of cases of splenic rupture [5]. However, symptoms can be subtle and the condition may be mistaken for angina pectoris, myocardial infarction, pulmonary ...
Background Spontaneous hepatic rupture in pregnancy is rare and carries a high maternal and perinatal mortality. Case report We describe a case of hepatic rupture that occurred after emergency caesarean section performed in a pregnant woman at 38 weeks of gestation with Hemolysis, Elevated Liver enzymes and Low Platelet count (HELLP) syndrome. The patient was discharged after 30 days of intensive therapy and four explorative laparotomies. Today, 2 years after delivery, the patient and her baby are doing well. Conclusion Hepatic rupture in pregnancy is a rare event that may complicate HELLP syndrome. In this case, we were able to achieve an excellent clinical outcome by the performance of an immediately explorative laparotomy. ...

Boerhaaves syndrome, or post-emetic rupture of the oesophagus, classically presents with vomiting, chest pain and subcutaneous emphysema. Mortality in this condition is very high and increases dramatically with delayed diagnosis and intervention. The vast majority of patients have a tear in the left posterior-lateral wall of the lower third of the oesophagus and require urgent surgical intervention. Spontaneous rupture of the cervical oesophagus is very rare and may present differently to oesophageal perforations elsewhere. A case is presented following vomiting in a 70-year-old woman, which was diagnosed by computed tomography scan and treated conservatively. The attending physician must be alert to the diagnosis of post-emetic cervical oesophageal perforation as prompt diagnosis and treatment is essential to reduce morbidity and mortality. ...

Bilateral patellar tendon rupture is usually associated with systemic immunologic or connective tissue disease, steroid use, fluoroquinolone antibiotic use, or renal disease. Amongst the spontaneous cases, bilateral ruptures are exceedingly rare and have only been documented in a few case reports. We present a case of bilateral midsubstance patellar tendon ruptures along from a fall from a standing height in a 34-year-old otherwise healthy adult without any predisposing conditions, diagnosed in clinical examination with a little extension deficit, and confirmed in plain radiographs showing a bilateral patella alta (A, B). Most patients that sustain a tendon rupture have risk factors for tendinopathy including chronic renal disease, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, or exposure to medications (such as fluoroquinolones or corticosteroids). To the best of our knowledge, this condition is often misdiagnosed. Despite the rarity of cases in patients without systemic disease, emergency
The rupture of an unscarred uterine is a rare life-threatening event that usually occurs late in pregnancy or during labor. Spontaneous uterine rupture, as in our case, is extremely uncommon and rarely diagnosed before laparotomy. Herein, we present a case of spontaneous uterine rupture in a 32 year old multiparous woman with no previous uterine surgery. The patient presented with acute abdomen at 11 weeks of gestation. Preoperative diagnosis based on clinical and ultra-sonographic findings was ruptured ectopic pregnancy. However, emergency laparotomy showed uterine rupture with extrusion of a dead fetus within intact amniotic sac in the abdomen. The defect was repaired in layers and the patient was discharged in a good condition after five days of hospital stay. Multiparity is a risk factor for spontaneous uterine rupture even in the first trimester. It should be kept in mind in any pregnant multiparous woman presenting with acute abdomen and shock. The absence of vaginal spotting and lack of history
An 86-year-old woman without any history of heart disease or trauma to the chest experienced an acute onset of dyspnea associated with a productive cough for 2 hours. Her medical history revealed that she was hypertensive for the past 20 years. Her blood pressure was 90 mmHg in systole and 50 mmHg in diastole. Immediately after admission, mechanical ventilation was initiated because there was progressive respiratory depression. A chest x-ray showed marked pulmonary congestion (Figure 1A). On physical examination, a grade III systolic murmur was noted at the apex, and a coarse breathing sound was detected within the whole lung field. ECG showed sinus tachycardia without any evidence of myocardial infarction (Figure 1B). Creatine kinase and its MB isoenzyme were not elevated, but high-sensitivity troponin T was 0.035 ng/mL (normal, 0-0.014 ng/mL). Transthoracic echocardiography revealed left ventricular hypertrophy without regional wall motion abnormalities. The left ventricular ejection fraction ...
INTRODUCTION: Infectious mononucleosis (IM) is a common viral illness that predominantly causes sore throat, fever and cervical lymphadenopathy in adolescents and young adults. Although usually a benign, self-limiting disease, it is associated with a small risk of splenic rupture, which can be life-threatening. It is common practice therefore to advise avoiding vigorous physical activity for at least 4-6 weeks, however this is not based on controlled trials or national guidelines. We reviewed published case reports of splenic rupture occurring in the context of IM in an attempt to ascertain common factors that may predict who is at risk ...
Occult splenic rupture with cardiovascular collapse: a report of three cases in critically ill patients.: Three cases of splenic rupture causing cardiovascular
Background. It is commonly believed that a heart attack is caused by rupture of a plaque in the wall of the coronary artery, resulting in blood clots which impede blood flow. Currently, the investigators do not know whether heart attacks in patients who had a recent surgery are caused by the same disease process as those who did not have any surgery. This study will inform the investigators of very vital information about the cause of surgery-related heart attacks by taking images of coronary arteries using Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). Images will also be taken from heart attack patients who did not have recent surgery, and the two groups will be compared.. OCT imaging. OCT is a relatively new imaging technology which is much better at taking images of the inside of the artery. OCT imaging procedure is carried out at the time of scheduled coronary angiogram, where a catheter with a mini-camera at its tip is advanced into the coronary artery, it will record video images of a length of the ...
The exact disease process behind spontaneous rupture of the canine cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) is not known. Though much research has focused on the structure and function of the ligamentous core of the CrCL, little has been dedicated to the thin layer of cells (synoviocytes) that envelop the CrCL. Similarly, there is little information on the potential role that these cells may have in the degeneration and rupture of the CrCL. It is not known if the cells have only a supportive function or if they become destructive to the CrCL when exposed to the right stimuli. Recently we successfully identified and quantified three distinct cell types in the thin membrane surrounding the normal canine CrCL. We now propose to compare these results with those of one or more of the cell types between normal and diseased or injured ligaments may be indicative of a direct or indirect role in CrCL degeneration and rupture. Another goal of our study is to determine if the cells surrounding the CrCL are targeted

A 26-year-old woman with a second pregnancy (G2P1) and who had had a previous Caesarean section is admitted after spontaneous rupture of her membranes at term. Her initial examination reveals a cervix at 2 cm dilation. She elects to undergo a vaginal birth. Over the next 6 hours her contractions decrease in regularity with no further progression of her cervical dilation. The bedside nurse calls the obstetrician who asks her to "start the oxytocin protocol." The hospital has 2 oxytocin protocols: a low-dose protocol for augmentation of labour, and a high-dose protocol for induction of labour. The nurse and obstetrician do not discuss which protocol to use. The bedside nurse institutes the induction protocol. The obstetrician intended to use the augmentation protocol.. Over the ensuing 3 hours, the nurse regularly increases the infusion rate of the oxytocin. When she reaches the hospital protocols maximal oxytocin dose, the nurse elects to continue to increase the dose because she wants to get ...
The Xpert GBS real-time PCR assay for the recognition of group B streptococci (GBS) in antepartum screening samples was evaluated on amniotic fluid samples collected from 139 women with premature rupture of membrane at term. 12 h before delivery. Intrapartum antibiotic prophylaxis (IAP) reduces significantly the incidence of EO-GBSD (2). It is still debated whether this IAP will favor colonization by antibiotic-resistant bacteria (3, 4). In France, the strategy to determine ladies for targeted IAP is based on universal antenatal testing with vaginal tradition at 35 to 37 weeks ATF3 gestation (5). GBS tradition MRS 2578 remains the platinum standard for the detection of GBS colonization. However, its turnaround time (TAT) varies from 18 to 72 h, which makes it not adapted for intrapartum screening. Term PROM is definitely defined as the spontaneous rupture of membranes more than 12 h at term before the onset of regular uterine contractions. PROM at term affects 8 to 10% of pregnant women (6). ...
In the present study, we show that it is possible to identify genes that are differentially and reproducibly expressed in whole-mount advanced human atherosclerotic plaques by using the SSH procedure. In the present study, we describe the identification of several genes differentially expressed between advanced stable and ruptured atherosclerotic plaques. Our stable plaques are classified according to the morphological criteria of the AHA and are characterized by a thick fibrous cap, high smooth muscle cell/collagen content, and a small lipid core, but also comprise rupture-prone lesions, with a thin fibrous cap and a large lipid core, but with no signs of intraplaque hemorrhage or a healed fibrous cap. According to the classification scheme described by Virmani et al,5 our group of stable atherosclerotic plaques includes thin and thick fibrous cap atheromas and fibrocalcified plaques. Our group of ruptured plaques (type VI lesions according to the AHA classification) is defined by the presence ...

Denudation of the overlying endothelium or rupture of the protective fibrous cap may result in exposure of the thrombogenic contents of the core of the plaque to the circulating blood. This exposure constitutes an advanced or complicated lesion. The plaque rupture occurs due to weakening of the fibrous cap. Inflammatory cells localize to the shoulder region of the vulnerable plaque. T lymphocytes elaborate interferon gamma, an important cytokine that impairs vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation and collagen synthesis. Furthermore, activated macrophages produce matrix metalloproteinases that degrade collagen. These mechanisms explain the predisposition to plaque rupture and highlight the role of inflammation in the genesis of the complications of the fibrous atheromatous plaque. A plaque rupture may result in thrombus formation, partial or complete occlusion of the blood vessel, and progression of the atherosclerotic lesion due to organization of the thrombus and incorporation within the ...

A gene that appears to make plaques in arteries more likely to rupture and cause potentially deadly blood clots has been identified by U.S. researchers. The finding may lead to new drugs that target the gene in order to reduce the risk of plaque ruptures.
Aims and objective. The aim of this study was to describe and interpret the essential meaning of the lived experiences of being in a critical illness-recovery process after a life-threatening condition. Background. The critical illness-recovery process after a life-threatening condition takes several years and does not only include patients experiences during intensive care. Previous research has mainly focused on what critically ill patients recall. However, from a phenomenological point of view, experiences are more than memories alone. To plan and perform relevant health care and social support for patients who have survived a life-threatening condition, a more profound understanding about their lived experiences is needed. Design and method. In this qualitative study, a phenomenological hermeneutical approach was used. Interviews were conducted with seven patients, two to four years after they had received care in an intensive care unit in Sweden. Results. The comprehensive understanding of ...

Introduction: Spontaneous rupture of uterine vessels during pregnancy is an exceptional situation. Case Report: We report a case of massive hemoperitoneum due to spontaneous rupture of uterine varicose veins, occurring in a patient with twin pregnancy at 38 weeks gestation. The patient presented abdominal pain associated with a sudden drop in blood pressure and severe decompensated anemia. Ultrasound scan revealed in-utero fetal demise of the twins with a peritoneal effusion. An emergency laparotomy followed by a cesarean section confirmed the diagnosis, etiology and management with a favorable maternal outcome. Conclusion: Spontaneous rupture of uterine varicose veins during pregnancy is a rare condition. Clinicians should be aware with this rare condition as delayed diagnosis can be fatal for mother and fetus. The definitive diagnosis of this condition is often made intraoperatively. However, the clinical presentation with ultrasound scanning is very important in planning the management of this
