Chest X-ray showed widening of the mediastinum and bilateral haemothorax
while ultrasound Focused Assessment with Sonography in Trauma (FAST) was negative.
4 There was a lack of surgical review in the days after Luke's haemothorax
When performing the eFAST examination, the subxifoid window is added in order to assess for presence of cardiac taponade, along with the windows in pulmonary apexes to rule out a haemothorax
1) Other complications of an Abrams needle biopsy include pain, vasovagal reactions, haematomas and haemothorax
2) Laceration of the mass may result in spontaneous rupture and massive haemothorax
The patient recovered from the anaphylaxis, which was otherwise well managed, but the ensuing haemothorax
was initially missed, resulting in prolonged hypotension.
Subclavian route is less preferred because of haemothorax
, pneumothorax and stricture.
Mortality from lung FNABs generally are an early event with the main causes haemoptysis, pulmonary haemorrhage, pulmonary venous air embolism and large haemothorax
Further, the two groups did not differ in terms of injury severity score, nor were there significant differences with respect to pulmonary contusions, pneumothorax, haemothorax
, and presence of chest tubes.
8 Pulmonary metastases are usually considered fatal due to the pneumothorax and haemothorax
Trauma series computed tomography (CT) scans demonstrated a flail segment between the sixth and eight ribs with disruption of the intercostal muscles and a small right haemothorax
White-out from a Wii: Traumatic haemothorax
sustained playing Nintendo Wii.
Osteochondroma of the rib:an unusual cause of haemothorax
(see Case study 2) can result from lung laceration or vascular injury.
Unfortunately, several intraoperative complications were encountered including a laceration of the pleura, haemothorax
, on-table severe bradycardia presumed to be caused by a pulmonary embolus and requiring resuscitation, and severing of the phrenic nerve.
