1. Spontaneous retroperitoneal hemorrhage caused by segmental arterial mediolysis.
Match Strength: 8.300
Spontaneous retroperitoneal hemorrhage is a rare clinical entity; signs and symptoms include pain, hematuria, and shock. Spontaneous retroperitoneal hemorrhage can be caused by tumors, such as renal cell carcinoma and angiomyolipoma; polyarteritis nodosa; and nephritis. The least common cause is segmental arterial mediolysis. Although computed tomography is used for the diagnosis of spontaneous retroperitoneal hemorrhage, it can miss segmental arterial mediolysis as the cause of the hemorrhage. The diagnosis of segmental arterial mediolysis as a cause of spontaneous retroperitoneal hemorrhage ... Read More »

18. A novel method of endoscopic mucosal resection assisted by submucosal injection of autologous blood (blood patch EMR).
Match Strength: 3.697
PURPOSE: Endoscopic mucosal resection assisted by submucosal injection of saline is a widely used procedure; however, it has three limitations: 1) it often is difficult to maintain a desirable level of tissue elevation after the injection; 2) the saline has no efficacy in preventing hemorrhage; 3) nothing can protect the site of mucosal defect after endoscopic mucosal resection to prevent perforation. Blood, as a new medium for use in submucosal injection, may remedy these drawbacks. This is the first report of this technique. METHODS: From May to October 2004, 28 outpatients (8 females; ...
