Intramuscular Injection


Presentation

  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was an observational study in which records of febrile pediatric patients presenting to the emergency department were analyzed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Pseudotumor
  • We present an unusual pseudotumor that formed in reaction to self-administered intramuscular injections of an anabolic steroid, nandrolone decanoate (Deca-Durabolin) in a young soldier.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Bruxism
  • Thirty patients with TMD associated with bruxism were randomised into three groups (n 10 in each group), and treated by bilateral intramuscular injection of BTX-A into the masseter, placebo, or control.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Myopathy
  • We report a patient in whom chronic intramuscular piritramide led to a focal fibrotic myopathy. Since piritramide myotoxicity has never been reported, we have studied its effect on rat skeletal muscle.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Mononeuropathy
  • We hypothesize that direct mechanical trauma to the anterior branch of the axillary nerve resulted in axillary mononeuropathy with axonal loss, although chemically induced nerve injury cannot be excluded.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

  • A careful diagnostic workup identified misguided subcutaneous injections due to a wrong injection angle as the most plausible cause.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Diagnostic workup included a CT-scan of the abdomen, which revealed fluid collection along the soft tissues on both thighs, extending into the abdominal cavity.[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com]
Immunoglobulin A Decreased
  • CONCLUSIONS: Repeated intramuscular injections of autologous immunoglobulin significantly decreased the clinical severity and serum IgE concentration in patients with severe AD.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Investigation of new treatment options has been limited by patient concerns about the negative fetal effects of medication. To assess the efficacy of intramuscular injection of autologous whole blood (AWB) for treatment of PUPPP.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

Epidemiology

  • The epidemiologic investigation of any IM injection site infection can be quite complex.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Funding and Disclosures * From the Laboratory on Housing and Illness, Armed Forces Epidemiological Board, and the Department of Medicine, State University of New York Upstate Medical Center.[nejm.org]
  • Cases of GBS after influenza infection have been reported, but no epidemiologic studies have documented such an association ( 209,210 ).[cdc.gov]

Pathophysiology

  • Considering the aforementioned pathophysiological impact of NSAIDs, treatment with NSAIDs may well have been an accelerating factor in the evolution of NF.[academic.oup.com]

Prevention

  • This prevents needle from touching side of the cap and prevents contamination. Pull cap off needle 18. With non-dominant hand, hold the skin around the injection site. This secures the area for injection. 19.[opentextbc.ca]
  • Gentle pressure is applied with a gauze but the site is not massaged to prevent forcing the medication into subcutaneous tissue.[en.wikipedia.org]
