Abstract

Angiography allows for excellent characterization and treatment of traumatic pseudoaneurysms. However, ultrasound-guided thrombin injection for pseudoaneurysm thrombosis allows for radiation-free treatment of superficial pseudoaneurysms and superficial expanding hematomas. A retrospective review of 5 patient cases treated under this paradigm was performed following institutional review board approval. Outcomes following intervention were recorded and compared amongst the patient cohort. Ultrasound-guided closure of traumatic pseudoaneurysms allowed for reduced procedural times and procedural invasiveness. As demonstrated by the following cases, ultrasound guided thrombin injection is a good method of primary treatment for superficial pseudoaneurysms, or as an alternative treatment in cases where transcatheter embolization fails.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 23 February 2016.
All research outputs
#3,682,298
of 7,252,957 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Trauma Management & Outcomes
#25
of 47 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#152,819
of 283,760 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Trauma Management & Outcomes
#4
of 5 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 7,252,957 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 28th percentile – i.e., 28% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 47 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.4. This one scored the same or higher as 22 of them.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 283,760 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 35th percentile – i.e., 35% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 5 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
