Hemothorax has been reported to occur along with spontaneous pneumothorax due to adhesion disruption. Rupture of pleural adhesions spontaneously or after unnoticeable trivial trauma causing massive hemothorax alone is rare. We present a series of seven cases of idiopathic massive spontaneous hemothorax due to adhesion disruption, of which all required(More)

From 96 cases of intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH), 7 (7%) were due to rupture of arteriovenous malformation (AVM). 1 patient with a giant AVM had a primary IVH. Others had intracerebral hematoma (ICH) with rupture into the ventricular system. The severity of IVH (SIVH) correlated with neurological deficits on admission and with outcome of 6 (85%) patients(More)
The mortality rate of hypertensive intracerebral hemorrhages (HICH) with ventricular rupture (VR) has been said to range between 60 and 86%. We report on 33 consecutive cases of HICH associated with VR, which were diagnosed by CT and treated by external ventricular drainage (EVD).
