Types and symptoms of bruises
The degree of tissue damage (subcutaneous tissue, muscles, small vessels, nerves) and the symptoms of bruises depend on the nature of the traumatic agent. Depending on the strength and location of the impact (injury), bruises varying in severity occur, from small organs that do not disrupt the function to extensive damage that is life-threatening. For minor injuries, microcirculation disorders with traumatic edema develop.
More intense contusion leads to hemorrhages of varying degrees, from pinpoint to diffuse tissue soaking with blood (imbibition) and the formation of subcutaneous, intermuscular and subfascial hematomas – limited accumulations of blood in the tissues to form a cavity containing liquid or coagulated blood. In soft tissue bruises, hematomas are localized in the subcutaneous tissue and muscles. According to the condition of the erupted blood, hematomas are classified into coagulated, aseptic, infected, festering.
The clinical picture of small injuries without damage to internal organs is characterized by the presence of pain, limited swelling, bruising, fluctuations on palpation, impaired function of the corresponding muscles. With extensive bruises in place of extensive bruises with hematomas, reactive inflammation (aseptic) can develop, followed by germination of connective tissue with the formation of a scar, sometimes subject to petrification.
Symptoms of complications of bruises
In severe bruises, primary thrombotic necrosis may develop due to crush of soft tissue. In cases of bruises, accompanied by severe hemorrhage, as well as tissue crush, aseptic inflammation develops, and traumatic edema is enhanced by reactive inflammatory edema.
