Siemens Healthineers inks long-term collaborative deal with Florida Hospital

Siemens (NYSE:SI) Healthineers today announced a multi-phase agreement with Florida Hospital to develop outcomes-based collaborative projects. During the first phase of the collaborative deal, the two groups will look to incorporate cardiac computed tomography angiography into Florida Hospital’s clinical protocol. “Siemens Healthineers has a longstanding creative backbone, and they’re always looking to create new solutions and innovative ways of delivering care across the health continuum. I’m really excited that we’re addressing affordability and accessibility by creating cutting-edge health care that connects with people in a new and different way,” Florida Hospital senior exec officer Eric Stevens said in a prepared statement. “Clearly, Florida Hospital is an innovative organization that is pushing the envelope to advance the way in which health care should be delivered in the future. Siemens Healthineers is pleased to collaborate with such a forward-thinking organization,” Siemens Healthineers diagnostic imaging senior VP Michael Wendt said in a press release. The project will culminate in a six-month study which looks to optimally assess and manage intermediate-risk patients who arrive at Celebration Health’s emergency department with acute chest pain, Siemens said. The study will use Celebration Health’s Somatom definition flash dual source CT system from Siemens Healthineers, the German industrial conglom...

Authors: Kim H, Yu Y, Shim KE, Kim JE, Koh J, Yoon JW, Ahn C, Oh YK Abstract A 47-year-old female previously diagnosed with ADPKD visited the hospital due to sudden pain in her upper abdomen and back. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy, contrast-enhanced abdominal computed tomography (CT), and CT angiography identified an esophageal artery pseudoaneurysm and hematoma in the esophagus. Urgent angiography and embolization were performed. After the procedure, CT angiography and positron emission tomography were performed due to differences in blood pressure between the arms. The patient was also found to have Takayasu arterit...

An 85-year-old patient with a history of oxygen-dependent chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and coronary artery bypass grafting (LIMA-LAD, free vein-circumflex) presented to the emergency department with chest and back pain. Computed tomography angiography (CTA) confirmed acute type a thoracic aortic dissection limited to the ascending thoracic aorta. Aneurysm size is 10 cm. This patient was evaluated by cardiovascular surgeons who offered the patient palliative care secondary to perioperative risk and sent home.

The pain occurred 3 days before admission. Computed tomography angiography showed a hazy-surfaced low-density area in the aortic arch with aneurysmal formation of unknown etiology. It was inconclusive whether the aortic change was acute or chronic because no previous information was available. To investigate the...

We report an 11-year old female who presented with acute complaints of high grade fever, pain in the left thigh and inability to walk and breathlessness since 6 days. On physical examination, there was a diffuse tender swelling of the left thigh, tachypnea, tachycardia with hyperdynamic precordium and bilateral basal crepitations. Ultrasonography and venous doppler of lower limbs showed mild effusion of left hip joint and thrombus in the left common femoral vein and left external iliac vein suggesting a diagnosis of septic arthritis with thrombophlebitis. The tachypnea and tachycardia which was out of proportion to fever a...

A 52-year-old man with end-stage renal disease underwent ultrasound-guided infraclavicular brachial plexus block for revision of an arteriovenous fistula. On postoperative day 2, the patient developed pain and loss of motor function in the surgical extremity. A computed tomography angiogram revealed complete dissection of the axillary artery. The dissection was emergently treated with a bypass graft, resulting in complete resolution of paralysis and pain. Sensory deficits resolved over the next 3 days. Smoking, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and chronic intake of a calcineurin inhibitor might have predisposed the patient...
