Historically, accidental IA injection occurred when drugs were given via a ‘butterfly’ or even simply a needle; the most common error now is the administration of drugs via an arterial line, but accidental arterial cannulation does still occur. Other patients known to be at risk for unintentional IA injection include those who are morbidly obese and those with darkly pigmented skin, thoracic outlet syndrome (vanishing radial pulse with abduction/internal rotation of the arm), indwelling arterial catheters for blood pressure measurement, or preexisting vascular anomalies of the forearm.19, 45, 61, 70 In all patients, clinicians … In 2 benzathine penicillin was injected, and in 1 rolitetracycline.

Y1 - 2005/6. 1 2 Lifetime abusers of intravenous heroin eventually develop a lack of vascular access as the superficial veins of the limbs and trunk sclerose with repeated injections. Spinal injections of steroids have been widely used in the management of back pain for more than 50 years (1). 0000073542 00000 n Complications occurring due to iatrogenic intra-arterial injection have an incidence between 1:3500 to 1:56000 as reported by several authors . Although the amount injected in the present case was as high as 20 mL, unlike most other cases in which the volume of solution injected was small (2-8 mL), the clinical presentation was similar. 0000073732 00000 n Introduction. Within 60 minutes of the injection, all structures returned to their normal state. Endophthalmitis Presenting symptoms may include eye pain, red eye, and blurry vision, and clinically the eye can appear severely injected with evidence of … Anesth Prog 1982; 29(1): 9-10. 0000021310 00000 n The facial skin, intraoral structures and eye were affected.

Historically, accidental IA injection occurred when drugs were given via a ‘butterfly’ or even simply a needle; the most common error now is the administration of drugs via an arterial line, but accidental arterial cannulation does still occur. Other patients known to be at risk for unintentional IA injection include those who are morbidly obese and those with darkly pigmented skin, thoracic outlet syndrome (vanishing radial pulse with abduction/internal rotation of the arm), indwelling arterial catheters for blood pressure measurement, or preexisting vascular anomalies of the forearm.19, 45, 61, 70 In all patients, clinicians … In 2 benzathine penicillin was injected, and in 1 rolitetracycline. Injecting at sites where an artery lies in close proximity to the skin places patients at risk of inadvertent intra-arterial injection. Cole JK. 0000072920 00000 n Intra-arterial injection of the cement may occur if the needle is positioned incorrectly, and fluoroscopic guidance can be used to verify needle positioning. 0000014575 00000 n T1 - Complications after unintentional intra-arterial injection of drugs. 0000072968 00000 n Injections are performed at all spinal levels, mostly in the epidural space, facet joints, and intervertebral foramens (2,3).
