Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A hematoma, or haematoma, is an extravasation of blood outside the blood vessels, generally the result of hemorrhage. A hematoma is a pocket or localized collection of blood usually in liquid form within the tissue. This distinguishes it from an ecchymosis, which is the spread of blood under the skin in a thin layer, commonly called a bruise. Internal bleeding is generally considered to be a spreading of blood within the abdomen or skull, not within muscle. It is not to be confused with hemangioma which is an abnormal build up of blood vessels in the skin or internal organs.show more
