Use of Femostop device in the setting life threatening inguinal bleeding

Massive hemorrhage from the inguinal space is an indication for the use of the Femostop device in the emergency department. This case report describes a middle-aged male with metastatic and recurrent penile cancer status post inguinal lymph node dissection and chemoradiation with a nonhealing left groin wound with extension to the femoral vessels. The patient experienced massive bleeding from erosion of an open wound in left groin into femoral vein requiring massive transfusion. Direct pressure and pressure dressings were unable to control the bleeding present in the patient ’s left groin.

ConclusionsDVH parameters and post-radiotherapy HRQoL appear to be closely correlated, underscoring the importance of assessing DVH values prior to initiating EBRT to determine the risk of developing HRQoL related adverse effects. Advanced treatment modalities may be appropriate in high risk cases to minimize treatment-related toxicity and to improve treatment outcomes and HRQoL. Future studies are needed to better elucidate the association between pre-treatment DVH parameters in organs at risk and subsequent HRQoL.

‚ÄčI was a practicing pediatrician before I did a residency in emergency medicine. One of the most common and sometimes most stressful decisions parents had to make in the neonatal nursery was whether to circumcise their newborn son. I have to admit that the hullabaloo about the foreskin has always intrigued me. The American Academy of Pediatrics has gone back and forth over the years on the topic of circumcision and its benefits, but the current evidence clearly establishes a benefit from this procedure (Pediatrics 2012;130[3]:e756) that is performed approximately 1.4 million times each year in the United States. (Mayo Cl...

Purpose of review: To review and summarize the contemporary knowledge of the implications of obesity on perioperative outcomes in oncological urologic surgeries. Recent findings: In men undergoing radical prostatectomy, obesity seems to confer a higher risk of intraoperative bleeding, biochemical recurrence, urinary incontinence, and postoperative erectile dysfunction. The literature was not consistent regarding the benefits of a minimally invasive approach in overweight and obese patients. Similarly, available data suggest a higher risk of complications in obese patients undergoing radical cystectomy. Obesity does not se...

About a year ago, I entered trauma therapy. For the first time I was honest with myself about the sexual abuse I experienced as a child. It opened a floodgate and shame, disgust, resentment, and depression rushed in. I’m happy to say that today those feelings are lessened or absent completely. I started working out a lot and traded a lot of fat for muscle. Every inch of me is now shaped differently. I’m the fittest and strongest I’ve ever been in my life. And yet I’m also sick. The stress of the past year did a number on my body. I was recently diagnosed with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia ...
