In the title compound, C(17)H(15)NO(2)S(2), the 3H-benzo[f]chromene ring system is distinctly twisted; the dihedral angle between the pyran ring and its opposite benzene ring is 9.11 (8)°. The N,N-dimethyl-carbamodithio-ate residue lies almost perpendicular to the pyran ring [dihedral angle = 85.15 (7)°]. In the crystal, weak C-H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the… (More)
A 16-year-old male with acute renal failure developed traumatic retroperitoneal hemorrhage following femoral vein cannulation for hemodialysis. Ultrasonographic imaging accurately delineated the extent of the hematoma, However, the site of the leak could not be identified at surgery and the patient could not be saved.
