[A new incentive for cardiac rehabilitation].

Ned Tijdschr Geneeskd. 2015;159(0):A9409

Authors: Brügemann J, Gerds-Ploeger HZ

Abstract
Only a minority of patients receive cardiac rehabilitation after acute coronary syndrome, coronary bypass grafting or heart valve operation. A recent study published in the European Heart Journal, presents the results from approximately 36,000 patients who participated in a rehabilitation program. It showed a 35% reduction in mortality during 4-year follow-up. Modern cardiac rehabilitation does not only focus on physical training but also includes interactive education, relaxation therapy, coping and self-management. Patients are also encouraged to participate in structural physical activity, which is incorporated into their daily life after the rehabilitation program. From other studies we know that not only is mortality reduced but also quality of life is improved as a result of cardiac rehabilitation. We both strongly recommend and encourage our colleagues to refer their caardiac patients to a multidisciplinary cardiac rehabilitation program.

Abstract
A 49-year-old woman presented with painful ulcera on her right lower leg. She was known with Crohn’s disease. Wound cultures were negative.

[Spontaneous, atraumatic rupture of the spleen in a young man].

Ned Tijdschr Geneeskd. 2015;159(0):A8392

Authors: Pluut OA, Holman ND, Rödel SG

Abstract
BACKGROUND: A spontaneous, atraumatic splenic rupture is a splenic rupture without a history of trauma. Rupture of this type may occur in a healthy patient but may also be seen in the context of an underlying neoplastic, haematological, infectious or local inflammatory condition.
CASE DESCRIPTION: A 30-year-old man presented to the emergency department with acute pain in the left shoulder, thorax and upper abdomen, accompanied by signs of haemodynamic instability. No history of trauma was reported. Because the clinical symptoms could fit various abdominal and thoracic conditions, he was sent for a CT scan. This revealed a splenic rupture with haemoperitoneum. Emergency laparotomy and splenectomy were performed. Anamnestic, histopathological and other supplementary investigations revealed no indications of underlying pathology so that a diagnosis of “atraumatic idiopathic splenic rupture” was made.
CONCLUSION: It is clinically difficult to diagnose a spontaneous, atraumatic rupture of the spleen due to the overlap in presentation with other, more common abdominal and thoracic conditions. A CT scan is essential to detect such a rupture promptly in order to provide appropriate surgical intervention.
