Secondary hemorrhage from the groin is a life-threatening situation with a high risk of amputation if the limb is not revascularized after controlling the bleeding. Three cases are described in which grafting via the obturator foramen was used to achieve iliofemoral bypass in patients with secondary hemorrhage from the femoral vessels. Obturator bypass has previously mainly been used in the management of infective complications in the groin after arterial grafting procedures. The previously reported cases are reviewed with special reference to the indications for the procedure in situations unrelated to previous reconstructive vascular surgery.

    Blunt trauma to the abdomen resulting in celiac axis injury is uncommon, and we present the case of a 28-year-old male pedestrian hit by a car. Whole body multi detector computed tomography revealed a non-bleeding celiac axis pseudoaneurysm. The subsequent successful endovascular management is...

Lesion histologic features, such as cellularity, vascularity, stromal component, and intratumoral necrosis or hemorrhage, strongly affect T1 and T2 relaxation times. Additionally, intracellular...

    Bedside laparotomy (BSL) was introduced as a heroic procedure in trauma patients too unstable for safe transport to the operating room (OR). We hypothesize a BSL protocol would maintain patient safety while reducing OR use. Patients were prospectively entered into a BSL protocol from July 2002...
