An abnormality at the hepatic flexure

A 92 year old woman presented to the emergency department after collapsing at home. She recalled standing from her chair, feeling lightheaded, and then collapsing. She had felt generally weak for more than a year, with weight loss of 56 lb (25.2 kg) but no change in bowel habit, dysphagia, or gastrointestinal bleeding. Her medical history included hypertension, hypothyroidism, and anaemia (which was currently being investigated by her general practitioner). Among other drugs, she was taking lisinopril, bendroflumethiazide, and levothyroxine. Her son had died at 60 years of age from large bowel obstruction and perforation secondary to colon cancer.

Minimising bleeding during percutaneous coronary intervention

In 2013 more than 92 500 percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures were performed in the United Kingdom alone.1 Bleeding events are among the most common complications; reported incidences vary between 2.2% and 14%.2 Peri-procedural bleeding has a negative effect on patients’ outcomes—as indicated by higher mortality and morbidity and diminished quality of life—and on metrics of healthcare provision such as length of stay and associated costs.3 Large registries of US patients undergoing PCI have shown that 12.1% of in-hospital mortality is attributable to post-procedural bleeding and suggest a significant association between major bleeding and in-hospital mortality across all strata of bleeding risk.4 The 2011 American Heart Association guidelines state that all patients should be evaluated for risk of bleeding before PCI (class of recommendation 1, level of evidence C).5
