399 Possible Causes for Difficulty Raising Arms, Plasma Fibrinogen Increased

  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica

    raising arms above one's head (0.19 (0.10-0.28)) were all associated with increased functional impairment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] that worsens after resting – for example, symptoms may be most severe when getting up in the morning fatigue (or tiredness) difficulty sleeping difficulty raising arms above[betterhealth.vic.gov.au] The majority of newly diagnosed PMR patients reported no or minimal functional difficulty.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Stroke

    Arm weakness. One arm will feel weak or numb. When asked to raise both arms, one of the person’s arms will drift downward. Speech difficulty.[saebo.com] Other biological mechanisms have also been associated with physical activity, including reductions in plasma fibrinogen and platelet activity and elevations in plasma tissue[doi.org] Arm weakness Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one drift downward? Speech difficulty Is speech slurred or hard to understand?[everydayhealth.com]

  • 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]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Quantitative changes in coagulation factors in patients with diabetes involve higher plasma levels of fibrinogen (the soluble precursor of solid fibrin), coagulation factor[nature.com] VII, and coagulation factor XII; increased endothelial expression of tissue factor and tissue factor–coagulation factor VIIa complex activity; and a reduction in the anticoagulant[nature.com]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    In conclusion, the increased risk of thrombosis in patients with renal failure is related to changes in the coagulation cascade with increased levels of fibrinogen and plasma[academic.oup.com] […] levels of plasma fibrinogen, d -dimer and plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI)-1 [ 62 ].[academic.oup.com] However, high plasma concentration of fibrinogen, d -dimer, thrombin–antithrombin complex, coagulation factor VII, vWF, thrombomodulin and PAI-1 can all indicate endothelial[academic.oup.com]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    INTRODUCTION: The propositus - a two-week-old boy - was transferred to our university hospital for investigation of increased head circumference and full fontanel. On ultrasound, thrombosis of the right internal cerebral vein and intraventricular haemorrhage was diagnosed, confirmed by MRI. Family history revealed[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    We herein report the case of a 25-year-old Japanese woman with left-main-trunk acute myocardial infarction (LMT-AMI). She had cardiogenic shock, so emergency percutaneous intervention was performed. Intravascular ultrasound of LMT-AMI showed that the three-layered structure of the intima, tunica media, and[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Preeclampsia

    Preeclampsia is a placenta-dependent disorder with both local and systemic anomalies with neonatal and maternal morbidity. It is manifested late in pregnancy, but the onset is during early stages of gestation. The current hypothesis regarding the aetiology of preeclampsia is focused on maladaptation of immune[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Prothrombotic state RA is associated with increased plasma levels of fibrinogen, von Willebrand factor, and plasminogen activator inhibitor 1, producing a prothrombotic state[web.archive.org]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    A 56-year-old man developed chronic breathlessness which persisted for years after he suffered acute pulmonary embolism (PE) despite all investigations being subsequently normal. This case illustrates a very common complication which occurs in up to half of all patients after an acute PE which has been labelled[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
