Renal: Dehydration secondary to vomiting and diarrhea, combined with propylene glycol thought to cause renal (...) for surgery include esophageal perforation, peritoneal signs and free intraperitoneal air. Relative indications include large volume (>150 mL) ingestions, signs of shock, respiratory distress, persistent lactic acidosis, ascites and pleural fluid. COMPLICATIONS Overall, short term prognosis is worst with Grade 3 (severe) GI injury, systemic complications, and age >65 years. Long term complications include esophageal strictures, which can form from scar tissue after mucosal remodeling. These strictures can

Aneurysms present with varying risks of rupture, and patient-specific factors influence anticipated life expectancy, operative risk, and need to intervene. Careful attention to the choice of operative strategy along with optimal treatment of medical comorbidities is critical to achieving excellent outcomes. Moreover, appropriate postoperative surveillance is necessary to minimize subsequent aneurysm-related

Unique case of esophageal rupture after a fall from height. Traumatic ruptures of the esophagus are relatively rare. This condition is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Most traumatic ruptures occur after motor vehicle accidents.We describe a unique case of a 23 year old woman that presented at our trauma resuscitation room after a fall from 8 meters. During physical examination there were no clinical signs of life-threatening injuries. She did however have a massive amount (...) presents a high cervical esophageal rupture without associated local injuries after a fall from height.

aortic aneurysms (AAA) that may present with pain or a pulsatile abdominal mass [1]. Although individuals with TAA are generally asymptomatic, some patients may describe chest or back pain. When patients with known or suspected TAA present with sudden onset of pain, complications such as dissection, hemorrhage, or impending rupture should be considered [2,3]. Although uncommon, cases involving a large TAA may present with anatomical mass effect, which can manifest due to compression of adjacent (...) , such as chest wall alterations from recent surgery, pneumothorax, or emphysema.

TTE allows for evaluation of the aortic root, important anatomy to visualize due to the frequency of associated findings such as valvular abnormalities, incompetence, and regurgitation.

Thus, among patients with CS within the appropriate demographic or with risk factors for coronary artery disease, ACS should be the focus of initial diagnostic testing, and this testing should include an ECG within 10 minutes of presentation.
