Recurrent symptomatic vertebral hemangioma in pregnancy managed with decompression and vertebroplasty

CONCLUSION: Exophytic vertebral hemangiomas that have extended into the spinal canal resulting in cord compression require urgent surgical decompression.PMID:33948320 | PMC:PMC8088490 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_34_2021

s IM, Chakinala MM Abstract BACKGROUND: The treatment, genotyping and phenotyping of patients with WHO Group 1 pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) has evolved dramatically in the last decade. RESEARCH QUESTION: The USPHSR was established as the first US PAH patient registry to investigate genetic information, reproductive histories, and environmental exposure data in a contemporary patient population. STUDY DESIGN: and Methods: Investigators at 15 US centers enrolled consecutively screened adults diagnosed with Group 1 PAH who had enrolled in the National Biological Sample and Data Repository for PAH (...

ConclusionOur results demonstrate safe and crucial application of off-label CEUS in pregnant women to assess different non-obstetric conditions allowing to prevent additional ionizing CT or application of (gadolinium-based) contrast agent in MRI. Hence, CEUS might add pivotal value for evaluating obstetric and non-obstetric conditions and thereby directing clinical management of pregnant women in the future.

Discussion Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is a benign, vascular lesion of the skin. PGs are red, small, often pedunculated nodules that can rapidly increase in size (up to 1-2 cm). They also can often ulcerate and bleed. They frequently occur on the head and neck, with back and chest being the next most common locations but can occur in other locations. They usually are solitary and do not regress. They are seen in children (mean age 6.7 years), young adults and pregnant women (5%). Treatment is electrocautery or excision. Learning Point PG’s cause is not fully understood. A gene has recently been identified with PG sugge...

Rationale: Klippel–Trenaunay Syndrome (KTS) is a congenital vascular disease characterized by cutaneous hemangiomas, venous varicosities, and limb hypertrophy. Although extremely rare in pregnant women, the present vascular alterations may be aggravated, consequent to postural and hormonal changes inherent to the pregnancy. Pregnancy is not advised in KTS women due to increased obstetrical risk. Patient concerns: A 31-year-old pregnancy woman presented with prominent vascularity in pelvis, right lower limb, spleen, and liver at 28 weeks of gestation. We started administration of anticoagulant therapy and obstetr...

We report a case of capillary hemangioma of lobular subtype in the calvarium of a 28-year-old pregnant woman which presented as a sore and rapidly growing bulge over the left fronto-parietal region. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain and skull showed an expansive tumor with brain displacement, skull erosion, and scalp infiltration. The tumor was surgically removed, and histopathological examination showed a capillary hemangioma of lobular subtype. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of a lobular capillary hemangioma in the calvarium, and it represents a rarity to be considered among the many other d...

We report a case of compressive myelopathy and compression fracture of aggressive vertebral hemangioma after parturition in a 35-year-old woman. The patient complained unable to walk and experienced intense pain in the back. Diagnosis: Based on the clinical features and imaging studies, the patient underwent a T4–T6 laminectomy. Histopathology consistent with vertebral hemangioma. Interventions: The patient underwent laminectomy for decompression. After subperiosteal dissection of the paraspinal muscles and exposure of the laminae, there was no involvement of the lamina by the tumor. The epidural tumor was remo...

Discussion Spider telangiectasia or spider angiomas have a central red lesion with radiating dilatation of the distal, end vasculature that resemble arachnid appendages. They are common lesions (up to 38% in one study of children, and 60% in pregnant women), often solitary or

AbstractUmbilical cord anomalies can be related to its morphology (coiling, length and thickness); placental insertion (marginal and velamentous insertion); in utero distortion (knotting, torsion and nuchal cord) vascular abnormalities (single umbilical artery) and primary tumours or masses (haemangioma and teratoma). Some of these conditions may be associated with other foetal abnormalities or aneuploidy. On the other hand, several prenatal complications including intrauterine growth restriction IUGR and stillbirth can be attributed to cord accidents or abnormalities. Early detection and close follow up of umbilical cord ...

CONCLUSION:  Although not clinically approved in obstetrics so far, CEUS is a safe imaging modality which, in addition to B-mode and color Doppler ultrasonography, may be applied during pregnancy for further medical indications and to provide helpful information.
