168 Possible Causes for Acute Massive Pulmonary Embolism

  • Obesity

    The prevalence of obesity and overweight increased in the United States between 1978 and 1991. More recent reports have suggested continued increases but are based on self-reported data. To examine trends and prevalences of overweight (body mass index [BMI] or 25) and obesity (BMI or 30), using measured[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

  • Acute Massive Pulmonary Embolism

    BACKGROUND: Acute massive pulmonary embolism usually results in death if not diagnosed early and treated aggressively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present the case of a 72-year-old woman who had an acute massive pulmonary embolism after abdominal surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This angiographic sign is a marker of severe, but reversible, vasoconstriction in acute massive pulmonary embolism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    HEART FAILURE means the heart is not pumping enough blood to keep the organs alive. Since its unable to pump the blood fast enough, the blood ON THE WAY TO THE HEART gets backed up in the veins. Reduced blood flow to the kidneys results in water retention. You end up with fluid in the lungs and edema on the[…][medictests.com]

  • Paraparesis

    BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to investigate the lower limb muscle coactivation and its relationship with muscles spasticity, gait performance, and metabolic cost in patients with hereditary spastic paraparesis. METHODS: Kinematic, kinetic, electromyographic and energetic parameters of 23 patients and 23[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

In chronic cor pulmonale, risk of venous thromboembolism is increased.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Paraplegia

    BACKGROUND: Functional neuromuscular stimulation, lower limb orthosis, powered lower limb exoskeleton, and hybrid neuroprosthesis (HNP) technologies can restore stepping in individuals with paraplegia due to spinal cord injury (SCI). However, a self-contained muscle-driven controllable exoskeleton approach based on an[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
