Gastrointestinal Air Motion Artifact Which Can Be Mistaken for Active Gastrointestinal Bleeding in Multidetector Computed Tomography: Phantom and Clinical Study
Conclusion Knowing the radiologic features of GIAMA can assists radiologists in identifying active gastrointestinal bleeding sites accurately.
ConclusionsCT angiography imaging findings have the potential to identify patients with head and neck cancer at higher risk of bleeding.
CONCLUSION About one third of the injuries previously classified as grade III will be upgraded to grade IV using the 2018 AAST, which adds to the heterogeneity of grade IV injuries. Although the 2018 AAST grading provides more anatomic details on injury patterns and includes important radiologic findings, it did not outperform the 1989 AAST grading in predicting bleeding interventions. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE Prognostic and Epidemiological Study, level III.
INTRODUCTION Admission computed tomography (CT) is a widely used diagnostic tool for patients with pelvic fractures. In this pilot study, we hypothesized that pelvic hematoma volumes derived using a rapid automated deep learning-based quantitative visualization and measurement algorithm predict interventions and outcomes including (a) need for angioembolization (AE), pelvic packing (PP), or massive transfusion (MT), and (b) in-hospital mortality. METHODS We performed a single-institution retrospective analysis of 253 patients with bleeding pelvic fractures who underwent admission abdominopelvic trauma CT between 2008 ...
ConclusionPneumorrachis is usually asymptomatic and is self-limiting. It is a radiological diagnosis and is not a clinical diagnosis. CT scan is considered the preferred diagnostic method for reliable and rapid detection of pneumorrachis. In case of coexistence, The physician should be alert to diagnose and treat the underlying cause for related injuries.In such cases, successful results can be obtained with hyper-oxy therapy (100% oxygen inhalation) and antibiotic prophylaxis without the need for surgical treatment.
To investigate the relationship between computed tomography (CT) angiography and 99mtechnetium-labeled red blood cell (RBC) scintigraphy to catheter angiography (CA) in the management of gastrointestinal bleeding (GIB) from an institutional point of view.
To investigate the amount of contrast administered to patients that underwent computed tomography (CT) angiography to catheter angiography (CA), 99mTechnetium-Labeled Red Blood Cell (RBC) Scintigraphy to CA, and CA alone in the setting of gastrointestinal bleeding (GIB), while considering the potential nephrotoxic effects of iodinated contrast.
Multidetector computed tomography angiography (CTA) plays an essential role in diagnosis and localization of lower gastrointestinal bleeding (LGIB) through detection of arterial extravasation for subsequent management with transcatheter angiography (TA) and embolization. However, the inability to reproduce arterial extravasation on transcatheter angiography precludes effective and safe embolization for treatment of LGIB. The purpose of this study is to examine whether the time interval (TI) between CTA and transcatheter angiography influences the reproducibility of arterial extravasation on subsequent angiography.
ConclusionThe differential diagnosis of neurofibromatosis should be advanced in cases of spontaneous bleeding. In patients diagnosed with neurofibromatosis, the risk of spontaneous bleeding due to the possibility of aneurysmal formation should be considered.
ConclusionPatients with reactive pupils and/or mild to moderate GCS may have benefited from TXA in the CRASH-3 trial because they had less intracranial bleeding at baseline. However, because bleeding occurs soon after injury, treatment delay reduces the benefit of TXA.
CONCLUSION: The authors report an unusual case of ruptured jejunal GIST with hemoperitoneum mimicking ovarian carcinoma. Therefore, GIST, in addition to ovarian cancer, should be considered in patients with an increased serum level of CA-125 and an abdominopelvic mass. PMID: 32055272 [PubMed]
