Painful shoulder in a patient receiving anticoagulation therapy with rivaroxaban
We report the case of an 83-year-old man on rivaroxaban treatment, with pain in right shoulder, back of the upper arm, forearm and wrist, and inability to extend the wrist and fingers, as the result of an injury. The radiographs were normal, but thoracic CT showed an axillary artery pseudoaneurysm and a secondary haematoma that compressed the brachial plexus. This should be borne in mind in patients with painful shoulder, treated with anticoagulant therapy and without associated radiographic changes.ResumenSe presenta el caso de un varón de 83 años en tratamiento con rivaroxabán, con dolor en hombro, c...
