Traumatic Fat Necrosis
Not at all: Fat necrosis is a result of trauma to the breast, sometimes so minor that you may not even remember the event. Lump develops but usually there is a history of black and blue bruising for a short period of time. Generally, the lump decreases in size over a period of time and disappears entirely, though this may take several weeks or months. There is no risk of cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cell death: Necrosis is cell death. Anything that disrupts the complex system that keeps cells alive can cause cell death. Subarachnoid hemorrhage is a bleed in the brain. The pressure from extra blood in a small space can crush cells, and disrupt fragile capillaries that bring oxygen to cells. This, cell death ...Read more

Possibly: Fractures will usually cause the most pain, but if there is massive blood loss and shock the patient will become comatose. In that state, the brain shuts down and we don't think pain is experienced as when awake. So, in the wake state, yes it is painful; in a coma, not so much. ...Read more
How bad is a focal area suggestiv of central fibrosis within liver. Mild centrilobular cholestasis and attached fibroadiposed tissue with fat necrosis?
Depends: It is impossible to evaluate these findings without knowing the clinical setting and the results of other tests of liver function. Certainly this does not make me suspect liver cancer. If you have questions about this ultrasound finding, I would ask your doctor or your gastroenterologist. Good luck. ...Read more
Cysts in bone: Cystic changes or erosions in bone post trauma can indicate that the bone matrix was disrupted from the injury and cystic changes have resulted.

Bone injuries can cause many different bone patterns to occur as a result of the bone trying to heal itsel ...Read more
Depends on a lot: This is often the debate which engages forensic neuropsychologists (see http://forensicneuropsychology.Com) and forensic neurologists. Results can vary greatly even with similar ct or MRI findings. Generally severity, presence of intracranial bleeding, elevated icp, early or especially post-traumatic seizures, locaiton of injury, shearing, and pre-injury factors ie. Age, prior injury, health etc. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Many fasciotomies CS returns. Hypertrophic muscles, scar tissue & fluid pockets in leg. Could fusing ankle atrophy muscles to reduce volume, & end CS?
Ankle Fusion: Ankle fusion (arthrodesis) absolutely will atrophy certain muscles in the foot and leg, as there is no further motion in the ankle joint. This limits the amount of contracture and use of the muscle, which leads to muscle wasting and atrophy. Also, you will not return the blood to your heart as effectively, as you rely on skeletal muscle to push the blood back to the heart (Venous insufficiency) ...Read more
Possibly but others: Although avascular necrosis can be related to corticosteroids it is important to know that there are other causes of avascular necrosis. There is a decrease in blood flow to the area involved. Although corticosteroids can be associated, it depends on dose and time and thus chemo steroids are less likely to be associated. Other causes: alcohol, joint injury and increased pressure ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
