Disease relevance of Hematemesis


High impact information on Hematemesis


Chemical compound and disease context of Hematemesis


Biological context of Hematemesis

  • While the host modulates the course of the disease by developing a cell mediated immunity, ultimately the inflammation in the liver interferes with portal blood flow that may lead to portal hypertension, portal-systemic shunts and fatal hematemesis [16].

Anatomical context of Hematemesis

  • We present here a case of sudden onset of wretching and vomiting after IV infusion of cis-platinum for recurrent carcinoma of the uterine cervix in which the patient had profuse hematemesis secondary to three posterior gastroesophageal tears requiring operative intervention after failure of nonsurgical management [17].

Gene context of Hematemesis


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Hematemesis

  • As a small amount of hematemesis occurred just after a percutaneous transhepatic portography was performed, emergency EIS was carried out, following which the serum total bilirubin level markedly increased, mainly with a direct fraction, until it reached 70 mg/dl [19].
