Mona Al-Ahmad, Tito Rodriguez Bouza
Hypersensitivity reactions to radiocontrast media (RCM) are common and in severe cases may present a challenge for treating physician in cases when premedication fails or the patient presents with severe comorbidities. We describe two cases in need of radiocontrast media after a severe reaction on previous exposure to iohexol. One presented anaphylactic reaction to RCM despite premedication and another presented with angina. Both cases were treated with a desensitization protocol to iodixanol. In conclusion, desensitization to radiocontrast media may be considered in patients with previously unsuccessful premedication and/or severe acute comorbidities...

BACKGROUND: Central venous cannulation is a necessary invasive procedure for fluid management, haemodynamic monitoring and vasoactive drug therapy. The right internal jugular vein (RIJV) is the preferred site. Enlargement of the jugular vein area facilitates catheterization and reduces complication rates. Common methods to enlarge the RIJV cross-sectional area are the Trendelenburg position and the Valsalva maneuver. OBJECTIVE: Compare the Trendelenburg position with upper-extremity venous return blockage using the tourniquet technique...

BACKGROUND: Whiplash-associated disorders (WAD) result from injury of neck structures that most often occur during traffic accidents as a result of rapid acceleration-deceleration. The dominant symptoms manifest in the musculoskeletal system and include increased fatigue. Because of the frequency of whiplash injuries, a simple, cheap and useful diagnostic tool is needed to differentiate whiplash injury from healthy patients or those faking symptoms. OBJECTIVES: To determine muscle fatigue in patients with whiplash injury in six body positions...

Individuals with a factitious ocular disorder feign or exaggerate having an eye injury or intentionally produce an eye injury so as to assume the role of a sick person. We report two cases of self-inflicted ocular injury using needle-like foreign bodies and razor that represent possible diagnoses of Munchausen syndrome. Both patients presented with different clinical pictures that misguided the clinical diagnosis and delayed proper management. Although self-inflicted ocular injuries are rare, ophthalmologists should be aware of the possibility of their existence, particularly when caring for patients with psychiatric conditions...
