Spontaneous Rectus Sheath Hematoma: An Uncommon Cause of Acute Abdominal Pain.

Am J Case Rep 2019 Feb 7;20:163-166. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Department of Internal Medicine, United Health Services Hospitals, Wilson Medical Center, Johnson City, NY, USA.

BACKGROUND A clinical condition that is often misdiagnosed, rectus sheath hematoma (RSH) is usually seen in the context of blunt abdominal trauma and/or anticoagulation therapy, rarely occurring spontaneously. We present a case of spontaneous rectus sheath hematoma (SRSH) without obvious risk factors and review the literature regarding diagnosis modalities and management. The aim of this case presentation is to highlight this rare clinical condition and emphasize the role of the physical exam in determining the appropriate treatment approach. Read More

Staged Strategy for Early Abdominal Wall Closure in a Case Involving Ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Requiring Open Abdomen in Which Primary Fascial Closure was Difficult to Achieve: A Case Report.

Chirurgia (Bucur) 2018 Jul-Aug;113(4):558-563

Open abdomen is sometimes necessary to save lives after ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. We report a case in which a staged strategy for early abdominal wall closure was applied to prevent the severe complications due to the extended period of open abdomen. An 81-year-old man with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm was transported to our hospital. Read More

Fatal Case of Spontaneous Rectus Sheath Hematoma Caused by Anticoagulant and Steroid Therapy during Hospital Admission.

Visc Med 2018 Jul 31;34(3):225-227. Epub 2018 Jan 31.

Department of Surgery, University Hospital Centre Zagreb, Zagreb, Croatia.

Background: Rectus sheath hematoma (RSH) is a rare but potentially dangerous clinical entity that requires medical supervision.

Case Report: Here we discuss one such case which describes the fatal course of spontaneous RSH during hospital admission.

Conclusion: Usually, RSH presents as a minimal abdominal wall swelling with self-limiting course but in the case of hematoma and size progression, specific conservative or invasive measures are necessary to prevent serious complications including hypovolemic shock and death. Read More

Unusual surgical emergency in a patient of dengue haemorrhagic fever: spontaneous rectus sheath haematoma leading to abdominal compartment syndrome.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Jul 10;2018. Epub 2018 Jul 10.

Department of Critical Care Medicine, Fortis-Escorts Hospital, Faridabad, Haryana, India.

Abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) is an uncommon complication of dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF), described so far only in association with fluid refractory shock and high-volume resuscitation. We describe an unusual case of ACS in a patient of DHF where raised intra-abdominal pressure was due to spontaneous rectus sheath haematoma causing external compression. Early recognition of the haematoma, constant vigilance and timely decision for surgical intervention could salvage the patient with complete recovery of organ function. Read More

Am J Emerg Med 2018 Jul 27;36(7):1257-1261. Epub 2018 Mar 27.

Service des urgences Adultes, CHU Clermont-Ferrand, Clermont-Ferrand (63), France; Université Clermont Auvergne, F-63000 Clermont-Ferrand, France. Electronic address:

Background: According to the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH), intramuscular hematoma without other severity criteria is not considered a major bleeding.

Objectives: In a large cohort of reversed vitamin K antagonist (VKA) patients admitted to the emergency unit for muscular hematoma, we assess frequency, severity, and anticoagulation management based on whether ISTH criteria were met or not.

Materials And Methods: We performed a retrospective single-center study involving patients admitted to an emergency unit for VKA-induced intramuscular hematoma whose bleeding was reversed with prothrombin complex concentrates. Read More

Division of Interventional Radiology, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA.

Introduction: Rectus sheath haematomas associated with anticoagulation are often self limiting. When large, however, they can even extend into the pelvis and cause compression of adjacent organs such as the bladder. A combined endovascular and surgical approach can decrease the operative exposure necessary to treat this occurrence. Read More

Don't Forget the Abdominal Wall: Imaging Spectrum of Abdominal Wall Injuries after Nonpenetrating Trauma.

Radiographics 2017 Jul-Aug;37(4):1218-1235

From the Departments of Radiology (S.A.M., A.D.S., B.K.) and Trauma, Burns, and Critical Care (R.A., J.D.G.), Brigham and Women's Hospital, 75 Francis St, Mellins Library, Boston, MA 02115; and Shields Radiology, Brockton, Mass (K.P.).

Abdominal wall injuries occur in nearly one of 10 patients coming to the emergency department after nonpenetrating trauma. Injuries range from minor, such as abdominal wall contusion, to severe, such as abdominal wall rupture with evisceration of abdominal contents. Examples of specific injuries that can be detected at cross-sectional imaging include abdominal muscle strain, tear, or hematoma, including rectus sheath hematoma (RSH); traumatic abdominal wall hernia (TAWH); and Morel-Lavallée lesion (MLL) (closed degloving injury).

The Cardiovascular Care Group, Westfield, NJ. Electronic address:

Objective: We sought to assess the early success and safety of catheter-directed, ultrasound-assisted (CDUA) thrombolysis for acute pulmonary embolism (PE) in patients deemed to be "high risk" for thrombolytic therapy.

Methods: A retrospective evaluation of patients who underwent CDUA pulmonary thrombolysis in our practice during 39 months is reported. There were 91 patients considered, all of whom presented with acute PE as diagnosed by computed tomography angiography. Read More

Bilateral rectus sheath haematoma complicating dengue virus infection in a patient on warfarin for mechanical aortic valve replacement: a case report.

BMC Res Notes 2017 Jan 7;10(1):26. Epub 2017 Jan 7.

Internal Medicine, National Hospital of Sri Lanka, Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Varied presentations and numerous complications intrinsic to dengue by itself increase the complexity of treatment and potential mortality. When burdened with the presence of additional comorbidities and the need to continue compulsory medications, clear stepwise definitive guidance is lacking and patients tend to have more complex complications and outcomes calling to question the clinical decisions that may have been taken.
