1,914 Possible Causes for Gangrene

  • Raynaud's Disease

    […] of the toes Gangrene of the fingertips Extreme constriction of blood vessels (peripheral) Tissue hypoxia Skin, muscle, and tissue atrophy Ulceration Ischemic gangrene Raynaud[disability-benefits-help.org] […] toes upon exposure to cold, that is characterized by pallor, cyanosis, and redness in succession usually accompanied by pain, and that in severe cases progresses to local gangrene[merriam-webster.com] These sores may progress to gangrene. In rare cases, gangrene may lead to finger amputation.[hopkinsmedicine.org]

  • Raynaud Phenomenon

    In addition to pain and functional impairment, Raynaud phenomenon can produce tissue ischaemia resulting in digital ulceration and gangrene.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although cold agglutinins or cryoglobulins may lead to severe acral gangrene the finding of relevant titers is rare.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In rare instances, severe Raynaud’s attacks can cause skin sores or gangrene, which occur when tissue dies.[aurorahealthcare.org]

  • Arteriosclerosis

    BACKGROUND: Guillotine below-knee amputation (BKA) for wet gangrene is an unfortunate complication of poorly controlled diabetes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Arteriosclerosis obliterans resulted in serious lower extremity gangrene.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cases 1, 2 and 3 had intermittent claudication while case 4 had gangrenous toes as the major complaint.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Arterial Embolism

    Fulminant infection of the lower limbs developed that led to gangrene and multiple organ failure, and the patient died 8 days after the operation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The rate of hospital deaths was high (27%) among the patients with thrombosis, and there was close correlation (r 0.76) between early postoperative gangrene and early death[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Twelve patients did not present until the affected limb(s) were in established gangrene. Thirty-two embolectomies were performed on 25 patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Clostridium Infection

    Septic abortion Clinically it appears similar to gas gangrene, now rare in UK with the legalisation of abortions.[patient.info] Like its cousins, the Clostridia that cause tetanus, botulism, and gas gangrene, C. diff passes through a life cycle in which the actively dividing form transforms itself[health.harvard.edu] See separate Gas Gangrene article. Tetanus Caused by Clostridium tetani . See separate Tetanus and Tetanus Vaccination article.[patient.info]

  • Phlegmasia Cerulea Dolens

    OBJECTIVE: Phlegmasia cerulea dolens (PCD) and venous gangrene are limb and life-threatening conditions of iliofemoral acute deep vein thrombosis (DVT).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Surgical thrombectomy is the recommended treatment in venous gangrene.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Venous gangrene was present in four patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Thromboangiitis Obliterans

    Human disease Buerger's disease Presenile gangrene Presenile gangrene (disorder) Thromboangiitis obliterans (disorder) Thromboangiitis obliterans NOS (disorder) Thromboangiitis[wikidata.org] Presenile gangrene (disorder) Thromboangiitis obliterans (disorder) Thromboangiitis obliterans NOS (disorder) Thromboangiitis obliterans [Buerger's disease] Thromboangiitis[wikidata.org] […] disease] Thromboangiitis obliterans BUERGER DISEASE edit Language Label Description Also known as English thromboangiitis obliterans Human disease Buerger's disease Presenile gangrene[wikidata.org]

  • Diabetic Gangrene

    BACKGROUND: Persistent high incidence of limb loss resulting from advanced foot gangrene in patients with diabetes prompted an aggressive foot salvage surgery as a final attempt[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A distinct tendency in the inducement of gangrene was found, i.e. thermal trauma had preceded 43.6% of the cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Bacterial synergism probably plays a role in infected diabetic gangrene.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Venous Thrombosis

    Although surgery may be required when venous gangrene of the intestine occurs, early diagnosis may allow successful conservative management with anticoagulation.[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com] In severe cases, phlegmasia cerulea dolens or gangrene may be observed.[symptoma.com] This case series describes 55 instances of Fournier gangrene in diabetic adults being treated with sodium–glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors.[annals.org]

  • Phlegmasia Alba Dolens

    Ischemia with progression to gangrene are potential consequences.[en.wikipedia.org] The end stage is represented by venous gangrene and shock. Arterial pulses in the affected limb are weak or absent at this stage.[symptoma.com] Arterial pulses may be present when the venous gangrene is superficial; however, gangrene that involves the muscular compartment may result in increased compartment pressures[thehealthscience.com]
