We report the case of a 46-year-old woman who had presented with left-sided abdominal pain 21 days after undergoing a left-sided laparoscopic nephrectomy for donation. Initial haemoglobin and haematocrit levels were within normal range, and vital signs on admission were unremarkable. Significant intra-abdominal pathology was not suspected; however, inpatient CT scan of the abdomen showed a posterolateral subcapsular splenic haematoma with free abdominal fluid. Initial trial of conservative management was not successful as the patient became hypotensive on the third day of admission with a sudden decrease in haemoglobin and haematocrit...

BACKGROUND: Intra-aortic balloon pumps (IABPs) have been used routinely since the 1970s. Recently, large randomized trials failed to show that IABP therapy has meaningful benefit, and international recommendations downgraded its place, particularly in cardiogenic shock. AIMS: The aim of this registry was to describe the contemporary use of IABP therapy, in light of these new data. METHODS: This prospective multicentre registry included 172 patients implanted with an IABP in 19 French cardiac centres in 2015...

Terrorist acts occur every day around the world. Healthcare professionals are often present as bystander survivors in these situations, with none of the equipment or infrastructure they rely on in their day-to-day practice. Within several countries there has been a move to disseminate the actions to take in the event of such attacks: in the UK, Run, Hide, Tell , and in the USA, Fight Back This paper outlines how a very basic medical knowledge combined with everyday high-street items can render highly effective first aid and save lives...

Ribavirin is a molecule with antiviral activity against different viruses. In clinical practice, it has made its niche almost exclusively for the treatment of the hepatitisC virus. However, there are other diseases in which it could be of benefit and it has the advantage of being suitable for oral, intravenous and inhaled administration. We conducted a review of the indications of the main drug agencies (Spanish, European and American) and other possible indications, mainly haemorrhagic fevers and coronavirus...

Treatment of blood blister-like aneurysm (BBA) is a challenge due to its unfavourable morphology, small size and the friable neck of BBA. In the management of ruptured BBA, coil placement can be achieved by stent-assisted coil embolisation. We propose to incorporate a new technique using a steam-shaped microcatheter to improve safety. A 59-year-old woman was transferred to our hospital and diagnosed with subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) due to a ruptured BBA of the left internal carotid artery (ICA) at the C2 portion...

Non-invasive liver fibrosis assessment techniques are under development for evaluating the severity of liver disease and portal hypertension. The paper presents practical arrangements for the diagnosis and treatment of portal hypertension in patients with chronic liver disease, established in the Baveno VI Consensus Workshop for diagnosis and treatment of portal hypertension. Currently, the diagnostic standard of liver disease severity is transient elastography, which can identify patients with clinically significant portal hypertension (liver stiffness > 20 kPa)...

INTRODUCTION: Central nervous system (CNS) related injuries and exsanguination have been the most common causes of death in trauma for decades. Despite improvements in haemorrhage control in recent years exsanguination is still a major cause of death. We conducted a prospective database study to investigate the current incidence of haemorrhage related mortality. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A prospective database study of all trauma patients admitted to an urban major trauma centre between January 2007 and December 2016 was conducted...

INTRODUCTION: Haemorrhagic transformation is a major complication of acute ischaemic stroke (AIS). We sought to determine the predictors and clinical impact of intracranial haemorrhage (ICH) after revascularisation therapy. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective, single-centre study including 235 patients with AIS who underwent intravenous recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (IV-rtPA) therapy and/or endovascular treatment. A binary logistic regression model was used to determine the variables associated with ICH, parenchymal haematomas (PH), modified Rankin Scale (mRS) scores, and mortality...

INTRODUCTION: Cortical subarachnoid haemorrhage (cSAH) has multiple aetiologies. No prospective study has reported the long-term progression of the condition. The objective of this study is to describe the clinical and aetiological characteristics of patients with cSAH and to gain insight into prognosis. METHODS: We performed a prospective, observational, multi-centre study. Data on clinical and radiological variables were collected; during a one-year follow-up period, we recorded data on mortality, dependence, rebleeding, and the appearance of dementia...

BACKGROUND: Cervical dysplasia (cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN)) is caused by Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and is most common in women of reproductive age. Current treatment of moderate to severe CIN is surgical. This procedure has potential complications, such as haemorrhage, infection and preterm birth in subsequent pregnancies. Moreover, 15% of women treated for high grade CIN develop residual/recurrent CIN or cervical cancer after surgical excision. Finally, 75-100% of patients with a residual and recurrent CIN 2-3 lesion are still HPV positive...

BACKGROUND: Botulinum toxin injection chemodenervation is a well-established intervention for adult strabismus, and has also been recognised as an effective alternative to routine incisional surgery for paediatric disease. We aimed to investigate the temporal patterns of practice, indications and outcomes of chemodenervation for paediatric strabismus at national and tertiary centre level. METHODS: Retrospective study using routinely collected patient data: Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) data were used to identify children undergoing non-incisional strabismus procedures in England from 2007 to 2016...

OBJECTIVES: If mitral valve repair is not feasible, mitral valve replacement remains the only option. Based on our overall experience with the On-X mitral valve, the aim of this study was to investigate early and late outcomes after mitral valve replacement using this latest generation prosthesis. METHODS: From 1998 to 2016, 600 patients received an On-X prosthesis in the mitral position. Of them, we excluded all patients who had combined aortic procedures and retrospectively analysed 318 consecutive patients who had a mitral valve replacement...

BACKGROUND: Myocardial injury after non-cardiac surgery (MINS) increases the risk of cardiovascular events and deaths, which anticoagulation therapy could prevent. Dabigatran prevents perioperative venous thromboembolism, but whether this drug can prevent a broader range of vascular complications in patients with MINS is unknown. The MANAGE trial assessed the potential of dabigatran to prevent major vascular complications among such patients. METHODS: In this international, randomised, placebo-controlled trial, we recruited patients from 84 hospitals in 19 countries...

Filoviruses are highly filamentous enveloped animal viruses that can cause severe haemorrhagic fevers. The filovirus ribonucleoprotein forms a highly organized double-layered helical nucleocapsid (NC) containing five different virally encoded proteins. The inner layer consists of NP, the RNA binding protein, complexed with the monopartite linear genome. A distinctive outer layer links individual NP subunits with bridges composed of VP24-VP35 heterodimers, which achieves condensation of the NP-RNA into tight helical coils...

Introduction: Patients with acute stroke are at high risk for infection. These infections are associated with unfavourable outcome after stroke. A prediction rule can identify the patients at the highest risk for strategies to prevent infection. We aim to develop a prediction rule for post-stroke pneumonia and other infections in patients with acute stroke. Patients and methods: We used data from the Preventive Antibiotics in Stroke Study, a multicentre randomised trial comparing preventive ceftriaxone vs...

Introduction: Stroke registries are used in many settings to measure stroke treatment and outcomes, but rarely include data on health economic outcomes. We aimed to extend the Sentinel Stroke National Audit Programme registry of England, Wales and Northern Ireland to derive and report patient-level estimates of the cost of stroke care. Methods: An individual patient simulation model was built to estimate health and social care costs at one and five years after stroke, and the cost-benefits of thrombolysis and early supported discharge...

Introduction: Treatment restrictions in the first 2 days after intracerebral haemorrhage have been independently associated with an increased risk of early death. It is unknown whether these restrictions also affect mortality if these are installed several days after stroke onset. Patients and methods: Sixty patients with severe functional dependence at day 4 after ischaemic stroke or intracerebral haemorrhage were included in this prospective two-centre cohort study...

OBJECTIVE: To present a case of lingual thyroid Hürthle cell carcinoma. CLINICAL PRESENTATION AND INTERVENTION: A 37-year old female presented with dysphagia and recurrent haemorrhage. Histopathology was suggestive of Hürthle cell carcinoma; the tumour was excised by the transglossal approach which provided adequate exposure and helped avoid external scar or mandibular osteoetomy. Histopathology showed tumour-positive right lateral resection margin. This prompted referral to nuclear medicine for radioablation...
