Angiomyolipomas are benign neoplasms of the kidney which can clinically mimic renal malignancy. The imaging features are quite characteristic, and diagnosis can be clinched solely based on radiological investigations. Although mostly asymptomatic, they can be a cause of significant morbidity due to size and hemorrhage. We report a case of giant angiomyolipoma with a dilated vessel susceptible to hemorrhage.

    Introduction Calibrated arterial pulse contour analysis has become an established method for the continuous monitoring of cardiac output (PCCO). However, data on its validity in hemodynamically instable patients beyond the setting of cardiac surgery are scarce. We performed the present study to...

    Arterial bleed from major arteries can be rapidly fatal if not stopped timely. Once temporary hemostasis by external compression is achieved, establishment of proximal control should be the foremost priority. We describe a case of acute hemorrhagic shock where a timely performed sternotomy to...
