  • occurs
  • Subdural hematoma occurs not only in patients with severe head injury but also in patients with less severe head injuries, particularly those who are elderly or who are receiving anticoagulants. (medscape.com)
  • Thus they expand inward toward the brain rather than along the inside of the skull, as occurs in subdural hematoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • A breast hematoma may appear due to direct trauma to the breast, for example from a sports injury or a road accident, for example a vehicle collision in which a seat belt injury occurs. (wikipedia.org)
  • In addition, the AST device is designed to prevent hematoma and loss of cannulation from the delayed confirmation of vascular access that sometimes occurs during MST, as described above. (wikipedia.org)
  • lucid
  • In a large series of patients who developed intracranial hematomas requiring emergent decompression, more than half had lucid intervals and were able to make conversation between the time of their injury and subsequent deterioration. (medscape.com)
  • severe
  • I asked my surgeon to evacuate hematoma because I had severe pain and also I was scared that it might start infection. (medhelp.org)
  • An indication of more severe damage to the lung than pulmonary contusion, a hematoma also takes longer to clear. (wikipedia.org)
  • contusions
  • Unlike contusions, hematomas do not usually interfere with gas exchange in the lung, but they do increase the risk of infection and abscess formation. (wikipedia.org)
  • The most common TBIs in sports are cerebral contusions, second impact syndrome concussions, dementia pugilistica, and hematomas. (wikipedia.org)
  • skull
  • Subdermal hematoma (under the skin) Skull/brain: Subgaleal hematoma - between the galea aponeurosis and periosteum Cephalohematoma - between the periosteum and skull. (wikipedia.org)
  • As the hematoma expands, it strips the dura from the inside of the skull, causing an intense headache. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissues
  • 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. (wikipedia.org)
  • differential
  • Epiglottic hematoma should be considered in the differential of any anticoagulated patient presenting with upper airway compromise. (hindawi.com)
  • breast
  • After the second surgery I got hematoma which my breast got red, swollen and itchy. (medhelp.org)
  • Breast hematoma is a collection of blood within the breast. (wikipedia.org)
  • Hematoma can also be a consequence of breast surgery, usually due to post-operative bleeding. (wikipedia.org)
  • More rarely, hematoma can result from breast biopsy. (wikipedia.org)
  • If a differentiation from breast cancer is necessary, a hematoma biopsy may be indicated. (wikipedia.org)
  • There is preliminary evidence that, after breast implant surgery, the presence of hematoma increases the risk of developing capsular contracture. (wikipedia.org)
  • In mammography screening, scar tissue resulting from a breast hematoma can easily be confused with tumor tissue, especially in the first years following surgery. (wikipedia.org)
  • moderate
  • a) Axial and (b) sagittal CT scan images of the neck showing an epiglottic hematoma with moderate narrowing of the airway. (hindawi.com)
  • blood vessels
  • 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. (wikipedia.org)
  • needle
  • Injection of a suitable local anesthetic by needle and syringe through the skin into this hematoma produces relief of the pain caused by the fracture, allowing the bones to be painlessly manipulated. (wikipedia.org)
  • By the time this has occurred, the needle may have punctured the back wall of the vessel, leading to a hematoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • large
  • Depending on where the hematoma is located and how large it is, a hematoma can have a very large effect or hardly be noticable. (everything2.com)
  • If the area being compressed is in the cerebral cortext , which is very large and mostly unconcerned with the regulation of life processes, there is a good chance that the subdural hematoma can be survived. (everything2.com)
