621 Possible Causes for Bilateral Diaphragmatic Elevation, Digitalis Toxicity, Ventral Hernia

  • 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]

  • Morbid Obesity

    Morbid obesity is associated with liver pathology, most commonly non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) leading to cirrhosis. However, the morbid obesity impedes qualification for organ transplantation. We present a case report of a 56-year-old woman who underwent bariatric procedure followed by liver transplantation[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Third Trimester Pregnancy

    The concomitant phenomenon of a third trimester pregnancy with a significant degree of pelvic organ prolapse is extremely rare. We report on a patient with pelvic organ prolapse complicating third trimester pregnancy treated by concomitant cesarean hysterectomy and abdominal sacrocolpopexy. A 30-year-old woman,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Umbilical Hernia

    Ventral Hernia A ventral hernia is a type of hernia that results in a bulge in the abdomen.[herniasurgeries.com] Importance More than 350 000 ventral hernias are repaired in the United States annually, of which 75% are primary ventral hernias (eg, umbilical or epigastric hernias).[doi.org] While umbilical hernias frequently occur during pregnancy, the few reported cases of uterine or fibroid incarceration in ventral hernias during pregnancy all involved incisional[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Amphetamine Intoxication

    Toxic concentrations of digitalis can cause nearly every known arrhythmia.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Digitalis toxicity is a potentially life-threatening, and frequently a drug-related, complication.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Because digitalis toxicity develops quickly and insidiously, the patient is taught early symptoms to report.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
