785 Possible Causes for Drop Attacks, Supraclavicular Bruit

  • Subclavian Steal Syndrome

    His physical examination was remarkable for the presence of a left supraclavicular bruit, and weak left radial and brachial pulses, with a significant discrepancy in blood[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The symptoms from the compromised vertebrobasilar and brachial blood flows constitute the subclavian steal syndrome (SSS), and include paroxysmal vertigo, drop attacks and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] bruits and disappearance of the radial pulse on exercise or elevation of the arm.[aafp.org]

  • Vertebrobasilar Insufficiency

    An isolated supraclavicular bruit (12 of 13 patients) and a history of ipsilateral digital ischemia (5 of 13 patients) were common.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient may suddenly become weak at the knee and crumple (often referred to as a “drop attack”).[en.wikipedia.org] It is sometimes known as beauty salon or Golden Gate Bridge syndrome, due to the effect of tilting the head back, causing vertigo or drop attacks.[almulcahy.com.au]

    It has many causes, and is distinct from vertigo, seizures, coma, falls, psychogenic pseudosyncope, drop attacks, transient ischaemic attacks, and states of altered consciousness[bestpractice.bmj.com] No syncope attacked during 12 months and three tilt-table tests performed at 1, 6, and 12 months were negative.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A vasovagal attack happens because blood pressure drops, reducing circulation to the brain and causing loss of consciousness.[webmd.com]

    We report a case of cardiac arrhythmia occurring in a Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) patient after succinylcholine administration during third endotracheal intubation, on day 13 of illness. The probable cause of arrhythmia is succinylcholine-induced hyperkalemia. Of interest, this case demonstrated in the same patient[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
