This is a retrospective study about the treatment of spontaneous muscle haematomas (SMH) that are an uncommon disease that occurs especially in elderly patients with acquired coagulopathy. We report the management of 10 cases admitted to our Emergency Surgical Unit (ESU) between March 2011 and October 2012. For this analysis we have considered some parameters such as age, drug history, current symptoms, location of the haematoma, cause, and imaging examination. Our attention focused on: clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, diagnostic imaging techniques and treatments.

Abstract

This is a retrospective study about the treatment of spontaneous muscle haematomas (SMH) that are an uncommon disease that occurs especially in elderly patients with acquired coagulopathy. We report the management of 10 cases admitted to our Emergency Surgical Unit (ESU) between March 2011 and October 2012. For this analysis we have considered some parameters such as age, drug history, current symptoms, location of the haematoma, cause, and imaging examination. Our attention focused on: clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, diagnostic imaging techniques and treatments.
