Rectus Sheath Haematoma
A rectus sheath haematoma is an accumulation of blood in the sheath of the rectus abdominis muscle. It causes abdominal pain with or without a mass.
The haematoma may be caused by either rupture of one of the epigastric arteries or by a muscular tear. Causes of this include anticoagulation, coughing, pregnancy, abdominal surgery and trauma. With the advent of an ageing population and the widespread use of anticoagulant medications, there is evidence that this traditionally benign condition is becoming more common and more serious.
