761 Possible Causes for Digitalis Toxicity, Diminished Heart Sounds, 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]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    The etiology of published BVT cases is most commonly digitalis toxicity and, rarely, herbal aconitine poisoning, hypokalemic periodic paralysis, catecholaminergic polymorphic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Heart On palpation, lateral displacement of the apical impulse, dyskinesis, a palpable S 4 gallop, and a soft S 1 sound may be found.[emedicine.medscape.com] These signs indicate diminished contractility of the compromised left ventricle.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    We report two cases of perioperative rehabilitation for abdominal cancer patients aged 75 years and older with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Case 1 was a 75-year-old man with COPD and 52-year history of smoking 30 cigarettes per day. The patient was diagnosed with gastric cancer and[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Cardiomyopathy is disease in which the heart muscle becomes weakened, stretched, or has another structural problem. It often occurs when the heart cannot pump or function well. Most people with cardiomyopathy have heart failure. There are many types of cardiomyopathy, with different causes. Some of the more[…][nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myxedema

    Macroglossia is classified as true macroglossia, which exhibits abnormal histology with clinical findings, and relative macroglossia, in which normal histology does not correlate with pathologic enlargement. This report describes an atypical case of morbidity with massive macroglossia secondary to myxedema; the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
