39 Possible Causes for Discoloration of the Lower Extremity, Myocardial Infarction, Pulmonary Infarction

  • Deep Vein Thrombosis

    infarction).[merckmanuals.com] infarction or stroke, but also venous thromboembolism (VTE), encompassing deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and/or pulmonary embolism (PE).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient's left lower extremity was discolored, tender, and swollen, although it had not progressed to venous gangrene or dermal necrosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Phlegmasia Cerulea Dolens

    PE should be distinguished from pulmonary infarction.[web.archive.org] Nine patients had hypercoagulable states, four May Thurner syndrome, three a history of cancer, one postcolon resection, one acute myocardial infarction, and one postfemoral[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient returned to the Emergency Department a week later for worsening pain and bluish discoloration of her bilateral lower extremities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Thrombosis

    The condition is often detected after complications such as myocardial infarction, pulmonary embolism, and stroke.[symptoma.com] Patients with venous thrombosis may have variable discoloration of the lower extremity.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] of the lower extremity Blanched appearance of the leg because of edema (relatively rare) Potential complications of DVT include the following: As many as 40% of patients[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    (However, pulsus paradoxus can also occur in COPD, bronchial asthma, pulmonary embolism, right ventricular infarction, and noncardiogenic shock.)[merckmanuals.com] Relation of left ventricular free wall rupture in acute myocardial infarction to forced immobilization. Am J Cardiol. 1988 ; 61 :910–912.[ahajournals.org] PCD is the term used to describe lower-extremity DVT that causes limb ischemia, and is characterized by severe swelling and blue discoloration of the extremity.[ebmedicine.net]

  • Periodontitis

    His comorbidities were chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, ischemic cardiomyopathy due to myocardial infarction, atrial fibrillation, hypertension, and dyslipidemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The magnitude and severity of chronic periodontitis associates to the size of the myocardial infarction based on levels of troponin and myoglobin, biomarkers of myocardial[dentistryiq.com] PCD is the term used to describe lower-extremity DVT that causes limb ischemia, and is characterized by severe swelling and blue discoloration of the extremity.[ebmedicine.net]

  • Paraplegia

    The authors present a case of delayed-onset spinal cord infarction after repeated tumor excision surgeries of the thoracic spine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Delayed deficits were considered to be caused by factors that amplified subclinical ischemic states that had occurred intraoperatively (myocardial infarction or hypotension[anesthesiology.pubs.asahq.org] She presented with generalized purplish net-like discoloration (livedo reticularis), which was more prominent in the lower extremities.[ekjm.org]

  • Heparin-induced Thrombocytopenia

    This typical HIT can result in deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, occlusion of a limb artery, acute myocardial infarct, stroke, and a systemic reaction or skin necrosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] At this admission, he was also found to have deep vein thrombosis of the left lower extremity, and heparin was started.[consultant360.com] A timely diagnosis is key to preventing unwanted complications of heparin such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism(PE), myocardial infarction (MI), or stroke[symptoma.com]

  • Thromboembolism

    We report a case of PTE with pulmonary infarction presenting as right flank pain that resulted from the use of varenicline (the total score of adverse drug reaction probability[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Signs/Symptoms Nonspecific; pain, tenderness, swelling, discoloration (paleness or redness) in lower extremities.[strokecenter.org] Patients were followed from January 2004 to June 2017 for new atherothrombotic cardiovascular events (composite of myocardial infarction, stroke, and TIA) and venous thromboembolism[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Embolism of Arteries of the Extremities

    infarction in 13 cases (9.48%).[tgkdc.dergisi.org] Small End-arteriolar pulmonary branches: Infarction Multiple Emboli : Pulmonary hypertension with right heart failure Thrombosis Embolism 48.[slideshare.net] This is a prolonged condition in which one or more veins don’t adequately return blood from the lower extremities back to the heart due to damaged venous valves.[surgery.med.miami.edu]
