2,036 Possible Causes for Bronchospasm and Wheezing, Pupillary Abnormality, Thoracic Aortic Dissection

  • Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm

    Immunofluorescence also showed that BRM and MMP2 were expressed in the thoracic aortic aneurysm and aortic dissection tissue.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] METHODS: The cohort was derived from International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision diagnosis codes for thoracic aortic dissection and thoracic aortic or thoracoabdominal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] What is Familial Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm Dissection?[heart.ucla.edu]

  • Cocaine Abuse

    The case in point pertains to a 26-year-old, Caucasian male, substance abuser who suffered a thoracic aortic dissection following the use of crack cocaine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cardiovascular complications of cocaine abuse include myocardial ischemia and infarction, dysrhythmias, cardiomyopathies and aortic dissection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Substance Abuse Problems

    Abstract Hospital-wide rumors and anecdotal reports had suggested that there was a potentially serious problem of alcohol and drug abuse among the psychiatric patients of this hospital. The authors describe a systematic, evaluative approach which gave direct and detailed information on the nature and extent of[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cannabis Abuse

    Abstract Previous neuroimaging studies showed that use of marijuana can alter patterns of cortical activation during rest or a task challenge. We used functional magnetic resonance imaging to examine whether recent cannabis abuse contributed to stress-induced blood-oxygen-level-dependent (BOLD) contrast in a[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cholinergic Crisis

    The patient may also have bronchospasm with wheezing, bronchorrhea, respiratory failure, diaphoresis and cyanosis from either cause.[enotes.tripod.com]

  • Chlordane Poisoning

    Abstract Chlordane was, prior to regulatory action by EPA in 1976, an extensively used insecticide for both household and agricultural pest control purposes. It was readily available to the general public for many years; thus, human exposure, including poisonings, has been documented. A case reporting fatal chlordane[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Epidural Hematoma

    Factors that may influence outcome are as follows: Patient age Time lapsed between injury and treatment Immediate coma or lucid interval Presence of pupillary abnormalities[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] An initial diagnosis of aortic dissection with an ischaemic paraplegia was made.[jnnp.bmj.com] Higher rates are associated with the following: Advanced age Intradural lesions Temporal location Increased hematoma volume Rapid clinical progression Pupillary abnormalities[emedicine.com]

  • Crack Ingestion

    Thoracic aortic dissection is a rare but recognized complication of crack cocaine inhalation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A case of an unusual presentation of thoracic aortic dissection following crack cocaine ingestion is reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is thought to be triggered in some cases by transient severe elevations in blood pressure, causing a shear effect on the thoracic aorta.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    KEYWORDS: Acute aortic dissection; Aneurysm; computed tomography angiography; subarachnoid hemorrhage[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract We report a rare case of concurrent aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and acute aortic dissection (AAD).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Nevertheless, our experience may highlight additional diagnostic value of thoracic to neck CTA in SAH patients.
