  • laparoscopy
  • Hepatoblastoma) Disseminated intravascular coagulation People on high dose of anticoagulants(blood thinners) Perforation of the colon Hemoperitoneum can be reliably diagnosed with the following examinations: Focused assessment with sonography for trauma (FAST) Paracentesis or diagnostic peritoneal lavage Computed tomography Diagnostic laparoscopy or exploratory laparotomy Initial management consists of immediate blood transfusion if the patient is in hemorrhagic shock.

  • spleen
  • Neutrophils are essential for early anti-Listeria defense in the liver, but not in the spleen or peritoneal cavity, as revealed by a granulocyte-depleting monoclonal antibody. (rupress.org)
  • This study shows that in mice selectively depleted of neutrophils by treatment with a monoclonal antibody, RB6-8C5, listeriosis is severely exacerbated in the liver, but not in the spleen or peritoneal cavity during the crucial first day of infection. (rupress.org)
  • post-operative pain
  • Clinically, peritoneal injury caused by drying has been linked to post-operative pain, evaporative cooling resulting in a decrease in core temperature and increased risk of intra-operative hypothermia, as well as adhesion formation. (wikipedia.org)
  • paclitaxel
  • To determine the potential pharmacokinetic advantage (favorable ratio of nab-paclitaxel (Abraxane) concentration in the peritoneal cavity vs. plasma) for nab-paclitaxel administered intraperitoneally. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • decrease
  • Conditioning the CO2 with humidity, in combination with heat, has been shown to decrease peritoneal damage by reducing the capacity of CO2 to carry moisture away from the tissue. (wikipedia.org)

  • Blood
  • Development in mosquitoes of Brugia malayi microfilariae obtained from the blood of jirds was compared to that of microfilariae from the peritoneal cavity. (ajtmh.org)
  • Blood may also escape into the peritoneal cavity leading to a hemoperitoneum. (wikipedia.org)
  • Hemoperitoneum (sometimes also hematoperitoneum) is the presence of blood in the peritoneal cavity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Classically, hemoperitoneum was an indication for emergency surgery to locate the source of bleeding and also to recover spilled blood from the peritoneal cavity and to use it for auto-transfusion if it has not been contaminated by ruptured bowel contents. (wikipedia.org)
