  • surgical
  • The third did a review of surgical exploration of the abdominal wound, use of diagnostic peritoneal lavage and CT for the early identification of significant lesions and the best time for intervention. (unicamp.br)
  • Prolonged injury to arrival and surgical intervention time were contributing factors to the high incidence of sepsis (63.2%) and mortality (22.8%) after laparotomy. (mysciencework.com)
  • hepatic
  • The treatment with PASG alone prolonged the median survival time significantly from 7 min in the control group to greater than 120 min in the PASG group in rats with an aortic injury and from 33 to greater than 120 min in rats with a hepatic injury. (lu.se)
  • Classic examples of these mechanisms are a hepatic tear along the ligamentum teres and injuries to the renal arteries. (wikipedia.org)
  • bowel
  • Fixed portions of the bowel such as proximal jejunum and distal ileum are more susceptible to injury than mobile portions since mobile segments can escape the high pressure and resultant damage. (wikipedia.org)
  • This can cause tearing of the mesentery of the bowel, and injury to the blood vessels that travel within the mesentery. (wikipedia.org)
  • renal
  • This appears largely arterial with a prominent pseudoaneurysm, however a component of renal vein / IVC injury is also suspected given a small discrete blush of contrast closer to this area. (radiopaedia.org)
  • Blushes of contrast just posterior and inferior to the left renal vein are suspicious for lumbar venous injury. (radiopaedia.org)
  • Wound
  • These injuries are caused by an object that penetrates the skin, such as a gunshot or stab wound. (drugs.com)
  • compression
  • In the present study - which is part of the EC funded CASPER project - two versions of APTS (V1 and V2) were evaluated in abdominal belt compression tests, torso flexion test (V1 only) and two series of sled tests with degraded restraint conditions. (sae.org)
  • strain
  • AMSTERDAM - With a title bout on the card for his season finale, FC Twente defender Oguchi Onyewu is day-to-day with an abdominal muscle strain suffered in training late last week. (mlssoccer.com)
  • occur
  • Stab wounds occur four times more than gunshot wounds in the United Kingdom, but the mortality rate associated with stabbing has ranged from 0-4% as 85% of injuries sustained from stab wounds only affect subcutaneous tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • The term incidents refers to major accidents, injuries, deaths that occur at a European park. (wikipedia.org)
  • Intravenous
  • Intravenous infusion in combination with PASG did not have any positive effects on median survival time or median mean aortic pressure and failed to prolong the median survival time significantly in rats with a liver injury, as six out of eight animals developed a lethal pulmonary edema. (lu.se)
  • belt
  • Implanted within the abdominal insert of child dummies, they can be used to detect abdominal loading due to the belt during frontal collisions. (sae.org)
  • Seat belt syndrome is a collective term that includes all injury profiles associated with the use of seat belts. (wikipedia.org)
  • The seat-belt sign was originally described by Garrett and Braunstein in 1962 as linear ecchymosis of the abdominal wall following a motor vehicle accident. (wikipedia.org)
  • Seat belt syndrome, a new pattern of injury in developing countries. (wikipedia.org)
  • aortic
  • Thirty rats were subjected to a standardized critical aortic injury and divided into six groups. (lu.se)
  • inferior
  • There is contrast extravasation / pseudoaneurysm at the inferior margin of the origin of the coeliac trunk, consistent with further arterial injury. (radiopaedia.org)
  • Tangential gunshot injury to the inferior vena cava repaired by means of lateral venorrhaphy (arrow). (medscape.com)
  • patients
  • While the temptation to perform a definitive operation exists, surgeons should avoid this practice because of the deleterious effects on patients can result them succumbing to the physiologic effects of the injury, despite the anatomical correction. (wikipedia.org)
  • Kidney
  • The left kidney demonstrates heterogeneous enhancement with areas of hypoattenuation, likely ischaemic - arterial injury not excluded. (radiopaedia.org)
  • blow
  • The injury is a major blow for Quaranta, who appeared likely to be called up by American coach Bruce Arena for the U.S. team's Memorial Day game against Wales at San Jose, Calif., on May26. (washingtontimes.com)
  • acute
  • This article reviews the performance of bedside lung ultrasound for diagnosing pleural effusion, pneumothorax, alveolar-interstitial syndrome, lung consolidation, pulmonary abscess and lung recruitment/derecruitment in critically ill patients with acute lung injury. (biomedcentral.com)
  • In the ICU, bedside chest radiography is routinely performed on a daily basis and is considered as a reference for assessing lung status in critically ill patients with acute lung injury. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Other risk factors: Lack of sufficient insulin (but enough to prevent ketosis) Poor kidney function Poor fluid intake (dehydration) Older age (50-70 years) Certain medical conditions (cerebral vascular injury, myocardial infarction, sepsis) Some medications (glucocorticoids, beta-blockers, thiazide diuretics, calcium channel blockers, phenytoin) HHS is usually precipitated by an infection, myocardial infarction, stroke or another acute illness. (wikipedia.org)
  • Patients with functional movement disorders and limb weakness may experience symptom onset triggered by an episode of acute pain, a physical injury or physical trauma. (wikipedia.org)
  • For acute abdominal pain in adults, an abdominal x-ray has a low sensitivity and accuracy in general, as well as for specific conditions such as gastrointestinal perforation, bowel obstruction, ingested foreign body, and ureteral stones. (wikipedia.org)
  • Abdominal x-ray is therefore not recommended for adults with acute abdominal pain presenting in the emergency department. (wikipedia.org)
  • nausea
  • Many forms of syncope are preceded by a prodromal state that often includes dizziness and loss of vision, loss of hearing, loss of pain and feeling, nausea and abdominal discomfort, weakness, cold sweating, a feeling of hotness, palpitations and other phenomena, which are often called "presyncope" ( Reeves and Swenson, 2012 ). (frontiersin.org)
  • Symptoms of HHS include: Altered level of consciousness Neurologic signs including: blurred vision, headaches, focal seizures, myoclonic jerking, reversible paralysis Motor abnormalities including flaccidity, depressed reflexes, tremors or fasiciculations Hyperviscosity and increased risk of blood clot formation Dehydration Weight loss Nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain Weakness Low blood pressure with standing The main risk factor is a history of diabetes mellitus type 2. (wikipedia.org)
  • gastrointestinal
  • It is often supplemented by an upright PA view of the chest (to rule out air under the diaphragm or thoracic etiologies presenting as abdominal complaints) and a standing view of the abdomen (to differentiate obstruction from ileus by examining gastrointestinal air/water levels). (wikipedia.org)
  • muscle
  • When you have an injury to a muscle, both strength and flexibility are compromised, and if your recovery ends before strength and flexibility return, you will never be 100% and will likely struggle with the problem forever. (sciaticnervecure.info)
  • Typical Class 1 Disabilities include : T1-T7 paraplegia without abdominal muscle control, post-polio paralysis with arm involvement and without control of trunk musculature. (wikipedia.org)
  • games
