Soft Tissue Swelling


Presentation

  • The present article emphasizes the point that HCC should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients presenting with palpable soft tissue swelling with destruction of the underlying bone.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A new method of casting, in which one half inch sterile foam is applied directly to the skin and overwrapped by circumferential fiberglass, is presented and compared with traditional casts. RESULTS: A total of 541 consecutive patients were included.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Moderate symptoms were present in 39% and severe symptoms were present in 13% of the patients. There was no relation between STS measured at all time points compared with the development of chronic dysphagia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This presents as: Swelling, heaviness, limited movement, aching and fibrosis of the skin.[quizlet.com]
  • Two cases of benign cervical prevertebral soft tissue swelling following traumatic asphyxia are presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Soft Tissue Swelling
  • OBJECTIVE: The objectives of the study were to determine the prevalence of periosteal reaction of the ribs in infants treated with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and to evaluate its association with soft-tissue swelling.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Bone window settings revealed at least 4 mm of soft tissue swelling in all instances. We conclude that a skull fracture without overlying soft tissue swelling demonstrable by computed tomography is probably inconsistent with an acute injury.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Persistent soft-tissue swelling remains when these intra-articular fractures are not anatomically reduced.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Several mechanisms, including soft-tissue swelling, have been implicated as a cause of postoperative dysphagia. PURPOSE: To determine whether anterior soft-tissue swelling is greater in patients with postoperative dysphagia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Radiographic scoring included the Larsen score, joint space narrowing and soft tissue swelling.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Aspiration
  • Fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of the soft tissue mass revealed cytomorphological features of HCC.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Aspirate for deep fungal infection. C. Aspirate for atypical mycobacterial infection. D. Perform a 3-mm punch biospy. E. Perform an excisional biopsy to include muscle. (Answer on next page)[consultant360.com]
  • Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) revealed necrotic material with Acid fast bacilli (AFB) suggestive of tubercular etiology.[mjdrdypu.org]
Sneezing
  • It is made worse by sitting for prolonged periods, coughing and sneezing. What is peripheral neuropathy? This is damage to the outer nerves. In the sensory nerves it presents with: Tingling, numbness, burning, increased pain, loss of balance.[quizlet.com]
Dysphagia
  • The presence and severity of chronic dysphagia was assessed using the Bazaz-Yoo Dysphagia Score. The prevalence of dysphagia in relation to STS was evaluated using the Wilcoxon rank-sum test.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • At 2 weeks, 18 patients had no symptoms/mild dysphagia (Group 1) and 25 patients had moderate/severe dysphagia (Group 2).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Complications of dyspnea, dysphagia and dysphonia were found more frequently in patients with marked PSTS group.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The patients were also asked to evaluate dyspnea and dysphagia, using a 10-point visual analog scale (VAS). The 3 groups did not differ statistically with regard to the area of prevertebral soft tissue density and VAS for dysphagia, at any time.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • There were no rehospitalizations or reoperations for soft-tissue swelling or dysphagia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Increased Sweating
  • If they have also developed increased sweating, a change in facial appearance, or had an increase in shoe or ring size, consider acromegaly.[endobible.com]
Sciatica
  • - Sciatica - Peripheral neuropathy - Meralgia paraesthesia This is where the sciatic nerve gets compressed/irritated by a prolapsed disk. It presents with pain, tingling and numbness running from the lower back down to the toes.[quizlet.com]

Workup

  • For most patients, the severity of the etiology and the injury or pathologic process, acute or chronic, can be determined from a targeted history, focused physical examination, and thoughtful workup including diagnostic imaging (eg, plain radiography)[emedicine.medscape.com]
Joint Space Narrowing
  • Radiographic scoring included the Larsen score, joint space narrowing and soft tissue swelling.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Mycobacterium Avium Complex
  • avium complex infections. [1] , [2] However, the epidemiology of NTM disease in patients without Human immunocompetent virus infection remains somewhat difficult to determine.[mjdrdypu.org]
Hepatocellular Carcinoma
  • Bone is quite an uncommon site of metastasis in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We report a rare case of HCC presenting as a rapidly progressive painful soft tissue swelling with isolated metastasis to the radius bone of right forearm.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • BACKGROUND: Varying casting techniques are used after surgical treatment of pediatric supracondylar humerus fractures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The changes were noted after PGE1 treatment for four weeks and one week, respectively. A skin biopsy was performed in one patient and revealed edematous changes and arteriolar wall abnormalities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract Soft tissue swellings of the groin can be a problem for diagnosis and treatment. One case of a ganglion connected to the hip joint capsule is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Treatment consisted of extraction of affected teeth, removal of involved tissue, and histologic examination.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical significance of prevertebral soft tissue swelling (PSTS) after anterior cervical fusion with plate fixation for the treatment of degenerative cervical spinal disorders.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • […] and implement a treatment plan so the patient can return to everyday activities. [5] To make a full diagnosis, a professional may use nerve conduction studies to localize nerve dysfunction (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome ), assess severity, and help with prognosis[en.wikipedia.org]

Etiology

  • Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) revealed necrotic material with Acid fast bacilli (AFB) suggestive of tubercular etiology.[mjdrdypu.org]
  • 수술 후 발생한 척추전방 연부조직 종창의 방사선학적 변화 충남대학교 의과대학 신경외과학교실 Abstract Objective: Anterior approaches to the cervical spine for decompression, fusion or instrumentation are performed in many conditions including degenerative, traumatic, tumorous or infectious etiologies[e-neurospine.org]
  • Osteochondritis dissecans , an intra-articular disorder of unclear etiology, is most common in boys during late childhood or in male adolescents.[emedicine.medscape.com]

Epidemiology

  • However, the epidemiology of NTM disease among patients without Human immunodeficiency virus infections is not well documented.[mjdrdypu.org]
Sex distribution
Age distribution

Pathophysiology

  • We add this peripheral hard edema to the list of complications of PGE1 therapy, and speculate as to its pathophysiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • The purpose of this study was to identify the natural course of prevertebral soft tissue swelling after one- or two-level anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) in order to prevent lethal airway obstruction after ACDF.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: There have been several reports on intravenous corticosteroid to prevent airway complication without a consensus; however, there have been no reports to date that have discussed the use of local steroids to reduce PSTS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • What treatment is often used in hospitals to prevent DVT? Calf swelling and pain along the venous route. It can present as asymmetrical oedema. Venous duplex ultrasound Blood tests to check creatine and urea levels.[quizlet.com]
