Receiving the influenza vaccine can decreases the incidence of influenza and the risk of influenza-related complications. However, the influenza vaccine is safe, serious complications may develop in rare cases. There is not any distinct study witch represent deep vein thrombosis as a complication of influenza vaccine. We would like to report on a case of VTE following influenza vaccination in a 35-year-old male presented with edema, tenderness and erythema of left and right lower extremities and left upper extremity and subjective feeling of fever or chills.</p> Seyed Mohammad Hosseininejad, Ali Mirabi, Mir Saeid Ramezani, Amir Shamshirian, Samira Hosseini, Seyed Hossein Montazer ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://scigatejournals.com/publications/index.php/ijimp/article/view/285 Fri, 26 Jan 2018 15:31:52 +0000 Presentation and Outcome of Patients Requiring Short Term Hemodialysis In Intensive Care Unit https://scigatejournals.com/publications/index.php/ijimp/article/view/315 <p>Aim: To study the patterns of presentation in patients of Acute Kidney Injury requiring Short Term Hemodialysis, duration of Hemodialysis required in different presentations, problems and complications of vascular access,complications during Short Term Hemodialysis, outcome of patients with Acute Kidney Injury undergoing Hemodialysis with respect to their presentation.</p> <p>Materials &amp; Methods: The study was undertaken at our college under the department of Medicine. It was an observational study carried out for 64 patients, suffering from Acute Kidney Injury requiring Short Term Hemodialysis, with presentations of wide variety of medical and surgical disorders necessitating admission in intensive care unit. Duration of study was 2 years, from January 2010 to December 2011.</p> <p>Results:Study showed a male preponderance (75%). Higher mortality was observed in the age groups of 61 to 90. There was a significant association between increased pre dialysis Blood Urea Level and mortality (p= 0.001) while no significant association between pre dialysis serum creatinine and mortality was found (p= 0.861). Acute gastroenteritis(n= 14, 21.9%) was the most common presentation of AKI requiring hemodialysis. Patients of acute gastroenteritis, acute pyelonephritis and malaria had complete recovery. Commonest complication of hemodialysis was hypotension in 33 patients (51.6%), followed by vomiting(28.1%) and fever with rigors (26.6%). Femoral vein (n=45, 70.3%) was most common vascular access used in our study followed by internal jugular vein (n=11, 17.2%) and subclavianvein (n=8, 12.5%).</p> <p>Conclusion: Early initiation of Short Term Hemodialysis in hemodynamically stable Acute Kidney Injury patients, whose underlying cause is treatable, is likely to result in complete recovery.</p> Jitendra Kodilkar, Jeetendra Singh, Abdul Tamboli, Smita Avhad, Fatema Merchant ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://scigatejournals.com/publications/index.php/ijimp/article/view/315 Mon, 16 Jul 2018 14:24:14 +0000
