Accuracy of dual ‐bolus CT in the diagnosis of active arterial bleeding in adult pelvic trauma

ConclusionBoth PV ‐CT and DB‐CT demonstrate high sensitivity in the diagnosis of any active bleeding though identification of specifically arterial bleeding is lower for both scanning methods. Nevertheless, inter‐observer reliability for the identification of arterial bleeding is higher for DB‐CT. Multi‐pha se arterial and venous CT may yield better results and could be a focus for future studies.

This post was originally written in 2013. A middle-aged man with STEMI  came to our CCU.  It is just another case of STEMI and asked my fellow to lyse. But it was not the case . He, told me, Sir, the patient had a syncope following chest pain and he has injured his face and Jaw. He was actively bleeding. When I saw this face, it was indeed  frightening. What shall we do ? When a patient  with STEMI presents with bleeding facial Injury Rush for Immediate PCI (Which was  of course not possible in our place as it happened out of office hours! ) Take that ultimate risk and thrombolysis Give only hepa...

CONCLUSION: The absence of vasospasm in the first DSA performed in patients with SAH and negative tomographic angiography could be a useful criterion for establishing an optimal follow-up protocol in these patients, without exposing them to unnecessary risks and radiation.

Rationale: The capsular warning syndrome (CWS) is a rare and special type of transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) syndrome. The pathophysiology of CWS is very complicate, and intracranial atherosclerotic stenosis (ICAS) is rare cause. Moreover, the effective and standard therapy has not yet been established. Patient concerns: A 47-year-old man experienced repeated and exacerbated TIAs of right hemiparesis and dysarthria. Fourteen hours after the first episode of TIAs, he developed more severe right hemiparesis and dysarthria, the National Institute of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) score was 12 points, and did not recover i...

AbstractPurposeTo compare CT angiography (CTA) and tagged red blood cell (RBC) scan as a function of time from these initial imaging studies to subsequent conventional angiography and catheter-directed embolization in patients with gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding.MethodsAn IRB-approved retrospective study was conducted of 35 consecutive patients diagnosed with GI bleeding that received angiography for planned catheter-directed embolization. Of these patients, 20 were diagnosed with bleeding using a tagged RBC scan, whereas 15 were diagnosed using CTA. The lengths of time between diagnostic study order to study completion, d...

Abstract Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a condition characterised by an obstruction of the pulmonary arterial system by one or more emboli. Advanced clinical practitioners are often faced with ruling out a diagnosis of PE in patients with non-specific symptoms such as dyspnoea and pleuritic chest pain, which can be fairly mild and therefore a diagnosis of PE easily missed. PEs can be a challenge to diagnose, especially in elderly people, since it can be difficult to differentiate their symptoms from other less serious illnesses. Widely used scoring tools are helpful to calculate a patient's probability of having a PE....

ConclusionTraumatic dACA aneurysm is a rare complication of brain trauma. Delayed intracranial haemorrhage and the sudden deterioration of neurologic function were the typical characteristics in patients with traumatic dACA aneurysm. CTA is the first-line screening modality for patients who present with intracerebral haemorrhage in the corpus callosum after trauma, particularly for patients who are older, in a poorer or critical condition. When the aneurysm is located in the A4 segment or involves a small branch, surgical trapping is the preferred definitive therapy to prevent further growth and disastrous bleeding. Early ...

ConclusionIn cases of OGIB, superselective mesenteric angiography (SSMA) with intraoperative methylene blue injection can be used as an adjunct to routine diagnostic modalities to guide surgical interventions for controlling hemorrhage and for limiting the extent of bowel resection.
