An analysis of risk for secondary hemorrhage
in traumatic hyphema.
The overall rate of postoperative hemorrhage in our study was 2.65%, with primary hemorrhage in 2.2% and secondary hemorrhage
in 3.1% cases.
There was no significant difference in the rate of post operative secondary hemorrhage
. In group A the rate of secondary hemorrhage
was recorded as 2.5% (1 patient) while in bipolar diathermy tonsillectomy 2 patients (5%) reported with secondary hemorrhage
Risk Factor associated with post hemorrhoidectomy secondary hemorrhage
. Dis colon Rectum.
Although our study included only patients with idiopathic bleeding, Surgicel should be as effective in controlling epistaxis due to facial trauma, coagulation disorders, functional endoscopic sinus surgery, and secondary hemorrhage
. If the force of blood threatens to dislodge the Surgicel, temporary anterior packing can be inserted and removed alter 2 to 6 hours.
Primary hemorrhage (within 24 hours after surgery) has been reported to be 0.2% to 2.2% and secondary hemorrhage
has been reported to be 0.1 to 3 %4.
There was an insignificant difference in secondary hemorrhage
The telephone survey disclosed that six of the 90 patients (6.7%) experienced secondary hemorrhage
post-tonsillectomy--two in the scissors group and four in the forceps group (table 3).
Conclusion: Single dose of dexamethasone given preoperatively significantly reduces the postoperative morbidity that is pain, episodes of emesis with no effect on secondary hemorrhage
in patients undergoing tonsillectomy by dissection method.
(1-3) Primary hemorrhage is considered to be more serious than secondary hemorrhage
, but the experience in our clinic has been that secondary bleeding can also be brisk and massive and require treatment under general anesthesia.
, which typically occurs between postoperative days 4 and 9, was considered to be relatively unavoidable.
This study confirmed what we previously reported in our earlier article: primary hemorrhage was clearly more common than secondary hemorrhage
in both age groups.
