Subcutaneous Injection

SC


Presentation

  • METHODS: We present the case of a 32-year-old Bulgarian male who presented with a two-year history of elastic, slightly painful penis swelling after subcutaneous liquid paraffin injection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present a 28-year-old woman who received 3.5 g (70 mL) of 3-sn-phosphatidylcholine (Lipostabil ) at once subcutaneously (s. c.) in both gluteal regions. The drug was originally introduced to prevent fat embolism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Mercury poisoning presents a variety of clinical pictures depending on chemical structure, amount absorbed, total mercury burden, and individual factors.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The size is determined by the amount of subcutaneous tissue present, which is based on patient build. The 3/8" and 5/8" needles are most commonly used.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Data pertaining to 65 patients treated at the Health Sciences Center Hepatology Research Unit in Winnipeg, Manitoba describing local complications related to subcutaneous interferon (IFN) injection administered to treat hepatitis C virus infection are presented[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Then, the fatigue severity scale (FSS), visual analog scale (VAS) and multidimensional fatigue inventory (MFI) were measured in both CF group and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and idiopathic chronic fatigue (ICF) subgroup.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Leg Edema
  • Fifty-seven cases with lower leg edema, from Nov., 1989 through Oct., 1990, received both SC-RNV and duplex US for causative evaluation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Liver Dysfunction
  • Drug-induced liver dysfunction and renal failure after subcutaneous injection of phosphatidylcholine was not reported so far. 3-sn-Phosphatidylcholine has been described as a cell lysis reaction-inducing drug.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Painful Erection
  • Foreign body granuloma, skin necrosis, penile deformity, chronic and unhealed ulcer, painful erection, and the inability to achieve a satisfactory sexual relationship are some of the resulting complications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • The rationale for developing two products with different dosing frequencies is that treatment strategies/routines, and hence different treatment preferences, can vary between patients, different stages of opioid maintenance treatment, and countries.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We experienced a case of granuloma formation by subcutaneous injection of leuprorelin acetate for treatment of prostate cancer.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The lesions resolved rapidly after discontinuation of interferon beta-1b treatment in both cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Transient hypotension occurred after injection of teriparatide during the treatment period and was asymptomatic except for the first 2 injections.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The treatment of PM is a clinical challenge. We herein report a patient with PM who achieved complete remission by multipoint subcutaneous injection of long-acting glucocorticid.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • Reflex vasospasm induced by the injection trauma may be etiologically involved. It is a potentially serious reaction which is little influenced by which drug is injected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Of note, the patient remained evasive regarding the cause of her disease, and the care team received varied and conflicting accounts as to the etiology of her infection.[woundsresearch.com]

Prevention

  • However, there is limited evidence of the effectiveness of this alternative for preventing PHN.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • BACKGROUND: In studies conducted to prevent the bruising associated with the subcutaneous injection of heparin, it is observed that bruising cannot be prevented completely; however, there is a decrease in frequencies and sizes of bruising.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Subcutaneous injection of normal saline after intraluminal injection of ethanol prevented the cutaneous ulceration observed in all cases without subcutaneous injection of normal saline in our animal model.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The bFGF released from bFGF-hydrogel prevented smooth muscle atrophy. Moreover, bFGF expression was significantly increased in bFGF-hydrogel group.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • As increased immigration changes demographic patterns, proper disposal of mercury and preventing its sale and use should become urgent societal priorities. Psychiatric consultation should be obtained whenever appropriate.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
