  • Endocarditis

    Peripheral vascular complications include splenic emboli with infarction or abscess, embolization to the pulmonary artery, and emboli to the femoral artery, resulting in extremity[emedicine.com] The subconjunctivial sacs and soft palate should be examined for petechiae, the nail beds for splinter hemorrhages, and digits for Janeway lesions.[the-hospitalist.org] Emboli may go to brain, lungs, coronary arteries, spleen, bowel,and extremities. Embolic events are most common in the first 2 weeks.[micunursing.com]

  • Thrombocytopenia Due to Sequestration

    Postembolization syndrome of fever, left upper abdominal pain, nausea, and anorexia are extremely common after splenic artery embolization.[evtoday.com] Petechiae are small, 2- to 5-mm mm, red or purple macules (spots) that appear most often in the distal lower extremities ( Figure 14-1A ) but also on the conjunctiva and palate[accessmedicine.mhmedical.com] Small petechiae often merge to form larger lesions. Very large, purpuric lesions are called ecchymoses ( Figure 14-1B ).[accessmedicine.mhmedical.com]
