dr-yaron-radoTwo doctors at Chrissie Tomlinson Memorial Hospital (), Dr. , Chairman of the Board and Chief Radiologist, and Dr. Christopher Bromley, General Surgeon, published a Case Report entitled A Case of a Chronic Pancreatic Pseudocyst Causing Atraumatic Splenic Rupture without Evidence of Acute Pancreatitis. This case report, published in Case Reports in Surgery, was studied and written in collaboration with three doctors from the who were shadowing our doctors at the time of the incident:


  • Dr. Parisa Moori – University of Liverpool Medical School, Liverpool, UK
  • Dr. Edward J. Nevins – University Hospital Aintree, Liverpool, UK
  • Dr. Thomas Wright – University Hospital Aintree, Liverpool, UK


The case report explores the rare complication of a pancreatic pseudocyst (PP) in a male patient admitted to CTMH. It explains what PP is, and how this case developed. A splenic rupture is a life-threatening complication and due to the tight collaboration between the departments of CTMH, the patient’s life could be saved.

“A 29-year-old male, with a history of excessive alcohol intake and chronic pancreatitis, presented to the emergency department at The Chrissie Tomlinson Memorial Hospital, . He exhibited a 24-hour history of abdominal pain, which was increasing in intensity, without a history of significant trauma…” – https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cris/2016/2192943/

Both Dr. Rado and Dr. Bromley have extensive years of experience in their respective fields, through this case, and their years of experience, they were able to postulate that when specific findings occur in a patient under the circumstances discussed in the case, what may happen next. Given this insight, these exceptional doctors worked together to prepare this report to share this information with others in the medical field. They hope that by raising awareness, they will be enabling other emergency departments to diagnose similar cases.
