Internal Medicine, Saint Mary's Hospital, Waterbury, USA.

Acute abdominal pain is one of the most common reasons for emergency admissions. Even though initial differentials are wide, a physician is able to narrow them down with detailed history, careful physical examination, and appropriate laboratory tests along with imaging studies. Unfortunately, some of the cases do not have an established diagnosis despite multiple blood work and imaging studies in the emergency department. Read More

Maternal deaths in Australia from ruptured splenic artery aneurysms.

Aust N Z J Obstet Gynaecol 2022 Jun 2. Epub 2022 Jun 2.

Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia.

The rupture of a splenic artery aneurysm (SAA) in pregnancy is a highly lethal condition, but so rare, that most obstetricians would not encounter it during their career. In the seven official 'Maternal Deaths in Australia' reports, that covered 21 years from 1997 to 2017, among a total of 449 direct and indirect deaths, there were nine deaths (2%) from a ruptured SAA. These cases, and other cases from the literature and the Cochrane Library, are reviewed. Read More

Atraumatic Splenic Rupture due to Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukemia Treated with Partial Splenic Artery Embolization.

Case Rep Oncol 2022 Jan-Apr;15(1):277-284. Epub 2022 Mar 21.

Department of Hematology/Oncology, Rocky Mountain Regional VA, Aurora, Colorado, USA.

Splenic rupture can be categorized into two groups: traumatic and atraumatic. Traumatic rupture is frequently associated with blunt abdominal trauma, while atraumatic splenic rupture (ASR) is more uncommon and has been associated with both benign and malignant hematological disorders. In general, most cases of splenic rupture are managed with splenectomy, which carries significant mortality and morbidity; more recently, splenic artery embolization (SAE) has become a mainstay of management particularly after traumatic rupture.

Pathological and ATR-FTIR spectral changes of delayed splenic rupture and medical significance.

Spectrochim Acta A Mol Biomol Spectrosc 2022 Oct 21;278:121286. Epub 2022 Apr 21.

Department of Forensic Pathology, College of Forensic Medicine, Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi'an, Shaanxi 710061, China. Electronic address:

Traumatic delayed splenic rupture often follows by a "latent period" without typical symptoms after injury. During this period, though there are no obvious symptoms, the injury is still present and changing. In this study, we constructed an SD rat model of delayed splenic rupture; evaluated the model by HE staining, Perl's staining, Masson trichrome staining and immunohistochemical staining; observed the pathological changes of spleen tissue in delayed splenic rupture at different times after splenic injury; we found that pathological change of injured tissues were different from non-injured, and has phases-change patterns, it can be roughly divided into three phases: 2-7 d, 10-14 d, and 18-28.

Usefulness of partial splenic embolization for left-sided portal hypertension in a patient with a pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasm: a case report and review of the literature.

Clin J Gastroenterol 2022 Apr 16. Epub 2022 Apr 16.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Department of Internal Medicine (Omori), School of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Toho University, 6-11-1, Omorinishi, Ota-ku, Tokyo, 143-8541, Japan.

Left-side portal hypertension (LSPH) is caused by isolated obstruction of the splenic vein and is associated with esophagogastric varices that extend from the lower esophagus to the greater curvature of the gastric body. Here, we report on a 74-year-old man with a pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasm (NEN) in the pancreatic tail with multiple liver metastases. We decided that partial splenic embolization (PSE) was the best course of treatment to prevent rupture of the gastric varices, which were classified as markedly enlarged, nodular, or tumor-shaped and showed erosion of the mucosa.
