81 Possible Causes for Hematomas after Trauma or Injury

  • Contusion

    Internal organs may also develop contusions as a result of trauma. Intraabdominal contusions are very frequent after blunt abdominal injuries.[symptoma.com] Injuries to the head may cause the development of intracerebral hemorrhage, subdural hematoma and subarachnoid hemorrhage.[symptoma.com]

  • Skull Fracture

    Spinal epidural hematoma may occur as a result of trauma, but may also develop spontaneously in patients with bleeding disorders.[neuropathology-web.org] Symptoms of increased intracranial pressure in epidural hematomas with arterial rupture usually develop within hours after the injury.[neuropathology-web.org]

  • Atrial Septal Defect

    In addition, iatrogenic pseudoaneurysms of the sinus have occurred due to hematoma formation after aortic valve replacement or removal of aortic valve calcifications ( 23,[pubs.rsna.org] […] from deceleration trauma ( 11, 16 ).[pubs.rsna.org] […] caused by infectious diseases such as bacterial endocarditis, syphilis, and tuberculosis; degenerative conditions such as atherosclerosis and cystic medial necrosis; and injury[pubs.rsna.org]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    Chronic subdural hematoma Chronic subdural bleeds develop over a period of days to weeks, often after minor head trauma.[pabrainspine.com] Subacute hematomas occur within 2 to 10 days after head trauma.[medtronic.com] The most common cause of a subdural hematoma is head trauma: sports injuries falls vehicle accidents motorcycle and bicycle accidents abuse or physical violence Symptoms may[nspc.com]

  • Intracerebral Hematoma

    Acute traumatic intracerebral hematoma (ICH) is a common intracranial injury after trauma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Surgery is preferred if the volume of supratentorial hematoma is 30 mL and complicated with disturbance of consciousness or other neurofunction impairment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bilateral Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve Paralysis

    Differential diagnosis includes bilateral recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy (BRLNP), local hematoma, vocal cord edema and laryngeal trauma.[signavitae.com] Abstract Respiratory distress is a feared complication after thyroid surgery.[signavitae.com] BRLNP results from intraoperative irritation without physical injury (neurapraxia), or intraoperative partial or complete transsection (axonotmesis and neurotmesis, respectively[signavitae.com]

  • Epidural Hematoma

    " An epidural hematoma was a type of brain injury that could occur in Humans, in particular after massive head trauma such as that associated with a steep or long fall.[memory-alpha.wikia.com] An epidural hematoma can occasionally run a more chronic course and is detected only days after injury.[emedicine.medscape.com] It is somewhat similar to a subdural hematoma. ( VOY : " Gravity ") An expanding epidural hematoma, a hematoma bleeding directly on the brain, was a very serious medical condition[memory-alpha.wikia.com]

  • Intracranial Hemorrhage

    Chronic subdural hematomas can present clinically months or years after a seemingly trivial head injury and often occur in the elderly. 23 Manifestations of a chronic subdural[doi.org] Subdural hemorrhage occurs when trauma results in tearing of bridging veins or dura and may be acute, subacute, or chronic in presentation.[doi.org]
