267 Possible Causes for PGI2 M

Did you mean: PGI2, M

  • Hypersplenism

    After recognizing a case of epoprostenol-induced hypersplenism that resolved upon stopping the drug, the authors retrospectively reviewed all patients treated with epoprostenol[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Five of 11 patients with POPH developed hypersplenism secondary to epoprostenol.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Continuous intravenous epoprostenol infusion is a treatment option for this condition.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiogenic Shock

    This was successfully managed with inhaled epoprostenol with normalization of right ventricular systolic function.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a case of RV infarction presenting with new right bundle branch block (RBBB), and therapeutic use of inhaled epoprostenol to reduce RV afterload and augment cardiac[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The use of inhaled epoprostenol in the setting of RV infarction has not been previously described, but it may augment right ventricular cardiac output via pulmonary vasodilatation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypocalcemia

    We report the case of a 50-year-old woman with anorexigen-induced pulmonary arterial hypertension treated with epoprostenol, who presented with Trousseau's sign, leading to[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After further analysis, we assume that epoprostenol-induced diarrhea caused malabsorption (as other reasons were excluded), leading to nutritional osteomalacia with secondary[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Thyrotoxicosis

    In the 39 patients treated with epoprostenol, the proportion of patients who received combination therapy with epoprostenol and an endothelin receptor antagonist (ERA) in[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The onset of thyrotoxicosis might be promoted by epoprostenol and inhibited by ERA.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The proportion of patients who received epoprostenol in the thyrotoxicosis group was significantly higher than that in the euthyroid group (12/12 vs. 27/47, p 0.015).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • General Anesthesia

  • Acute Respiratory Failure

    There was an increase in ECMO and inhaled epoprostenol over time but no change in nitric oxide or cNMBAs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), inhaled nitric oxide, inhaled epoprostenol, and continuous neuromuscular blockading agents (cNMBAs) in adult mechanically ventilated[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Using the relevant landmark publication dates, these analyses did not reveal any change in use over time after publication with the exception of inhaled epoprostenol-for which[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus

    She continued to suffer from recurrent hemoptysis, even after switching from i.v. epoprostenol to i.v. treprostinil.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] KEYWORDS: Eisenmenger syndrome; embolization; epoprostenol; hemoptysis; lung hemorrhage; pulmonary arterial hypertension[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She developed hemoptysis after the introduction of i.v. epoprostenol, which was administered as a bridging treatment while the patient awaited lung transplantation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Micrococcus Luteus

    The preparation of epoprostenol solution by patients themselves was thought to be a risk factor.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] luteus isolates and one Kocuria spp. isolate were obtained from blood cultures of pulmonary hypertension (PH) patients who were receiving continuous infusion therapy with epoprostenol[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Peripheral Vascular Disease

    Abstract Prostacyclin (prostaglandin I2, epoprostenol sodium) arrested the progress of gangrene in the feet of a 6 year old boy with familial but otherwise unexplained peripheral[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Vasodilation

    KEYWORDS: acetylcholine; epoprostenol; estrogens; hypertension; prostanoids[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In contrast, endothelial denudation or the addition of a nitric oxide synthase inhibitor markedly attenuated the vasodilation of EPA induced by epoprostenol, treprostinil[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Before the training period, the vasodilator response to intra-arterial infusion of either the prostacyclin analog epoprostenol or acetylcholine was lower ( 13%-41%; P 2016[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
