Diagnosis and perioperative management of ruptured AAA mimicking symptomatic groin hernia


Klein, Holger Jan; Becker, Daniel; Rancic, Zoran (2016). Diagnosis and perioperative management of ruptured AAA mimicking symptomatic groin hernia. International journal of surgery case reports, 18:1-4.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (RAAA) can infrequently present as symptomatic groin hernia. This misleading form of presentation often leads to erroneous preoperative management resulting in poor survival.
CASE PRESENTATION: Two patients with RAAA mimicking symptomatic groin hernia underwent different preoperative managements pointing out the importance of the principles of hypotensive haemostasis in the scope of this emergency scenario.
CONCLUSION: Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA) remains the recommended diagnostic tool-for both safe diagnosis of the ruptured aneurysm and precise preoperative planning. Endovascular aortic repair of the RAAA-if feasible-is the treatment of choice. This rare form of RAAA manifestation should call physicians attention-especially in patients with known abdominal aortic aneurysms in their preceding medical history.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
