PURPOSE Management of acetaminophen overdose focuses on the risk hepatic failure. However, acute renal failure, although less frequent, can lead to serious metabolic complications and require hemodialysis. We report three cases of acute renal failure related to acetaminophen overdose. CLINICAL FEATURES Three patients, aged 17-46 yr ingested acetaminophen(More)
Nimesulide is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug available in several European countries. A hepatic toxicity due to nimesulide has been reported but fatal cases remain rare. We report the case of a 49-year-old woman treated by nimesulide during three days, admitted to the intensive care unit for an acute liver failure with encephalopathy. A temporary(More)
Coupled plasma filtration adsorption (CPFA) is a new technology proposed for septic shock, removing both pro- and anti-inflammatory mediators. We report the first use of CPFA in France. The patient was 80-years-old and was admitted to the intensive care unit because of septic shock from urinary source. Besides conventional septic shock treatment, four(More)
We report a case of an iatrogenic tracheal rupture following an endotracheal intubation. The 78-year-old patient was admitted to the intensive care unit because of an acute respiratory failure related to a severe nosocomial pneumonia occurring 21 days after an abdominal aorta surgery. His main antecedent was a cigarette smoke-induced chronic obstructive(More)
High-volume hemofiltration has been suggested as an adjuvant treatment of septic shock (renal support and immunomodulation of the host response via the removal of middle molecular weight molecules such as cytokines). Nevertheless, high-volume hemofiltration presents some important drawbacks, such as the depletion of low molecular weight molecules(More)
