206 Possible Causes for Hepatomegaly, Noncompliance, Peripheral Vascular Disease

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Hepatomegaly (in chronic alcoholic liver disease the liver is shrunken). Ascites; gonadal atrophy. Atrial fibrillation and cardiomyopathy.[patient.info] Clients must occasionally be discharged as noncompliant, which reinforces to the chronic relapser that he/she can no longer successfully live on self will.[addictionpro.com] Chronic alcoholism, rather than liver disease, causes Dupuytren contracture of the palmar fascia (see Figure: Dupuytren Contracture ), vascular spiders, myopathy, and peripheral[merckmanuals.com]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Abstract Glycogenic hepatopathy is a rare condition that causes significant hepatomegaly and elevated liver enzyme levels in uncontrolled type 1 diabetic patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Search terms used included "diabetes mellitus," "peripheral vascular disease," "distribution of disease," "angiography," "computed tomography angiography," and "magnetic resonance[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Arch Surg 140 : 362 -367, 2005 Elkins G , Whitfield P, Marcus J, Symmonds R, Rodriguez J, Cook T: Noncompliance with behavioral recommendations following bariatric surgery[clinical.diabetesjournals.org]

  • Obesity

    Obesity increases the risk for alterations in hepatocyte function that lead to accumulation of lipid in hepatocytes and hepatomegaly.[library.med.utah.edu] Noncompliance with behavioral recommendations following bariatric surgery. Obes Surg 2005 ;15: 546 - 551 Citing Articles (1519) Letters Article Figures/Media[dx.doi.org] The populations in the studies reviewed were generally self‐ or researcher‐selected, and often noncompliant patients were excluded from analyses.[dx.doi.org]

  • Diabetes Mellitus Type 1

    Hepatomegaly and elevated liver enzymes in patients with diabetes are commonly associated with fatty liver disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When a patient with type 1 DM loses metabolic control (such as during infections or periods of noncompliance with therapy), symptoms of diabetic ketoacidosis occur.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Macrovascular complications include coronary artery, cerebrovascular, and peripheral vascular disease.[us.bestpractice.bmj.com]

  • Hyperlipidemia

    Lethargy, hepatomegaly, and hyperglycemia increased with time.[web.archive.org] Overestimation of the actual ingested dosage may occur due to some degree of noncompliance.[journals.plos.org] Longstanding elevated cholesterol is typically associated with cardiovascular disease and therefore, can lead to heart attack, stroke and/or peripheral vascular disease.[shcs.ucdavis.edu]

  • Heart Failure

    A physical examination revealed a systolic murmur, which was best audible in the right parasternal side, ascites, and hepatomegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pathophysiology – Congestive Heart Failure - Diastolic Diastolic dysfunction occurs when the left ventricular myocardium is noncompliant and not able to accept blood return[healio.com] These include patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease ( COPD ), peripheral vascular disease, diabetes mellitus, erectile dysfunction and older adults.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Right upper quadrant sonogram revealed hepatomegaly of 15 cm, trace amount of perihepatic ascites, pericholecystic fluid, and also thickened edematous gallbladder wall with[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These include any recent infection, dietary non compliance (excess use of fluids, alcohol, or salt), medication noncompliance (especially diuretics), presence of chest pain[clinicaladvisor.com] These include patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease ( COPD ), peripheral vascular disease, diabetes mellitus, erectile dysfunction and older adults.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Constrictive Pericarditis

    Examination revealed raised jugular venous pressure (JVP), pitting pedal oedema, muffled heart sounds, bilateral pleural effusion and hepatomegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Coronary Artery Disease or Peripheral Vascular Disease Prior to pericardiectomy, patients with risk factors for coronary artery disease should undergo cardiac catherization[clinicaladvisor.com] Abstract Constrictive pericarditis (CP) represents a form of severe diastolic heart failure (HF), secondary to a noncompliant pericardium.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Affected infants may present in the newborn period with cholestatic jaundice, sometimes with acholic stools (pale or clay-coloured) and hepatomegaly.[doi.org] AECOPD. 5 Various risk factors that increase the likelihood of developing AECOPD include prior exacerbations, increasing grade of airflow limitation, female gender, smoking, noncompliance[pharmacytimes.com] vascular disease, diabetes mellitus, depression and advanced age. 4, 6, 38 – 43 The present meta-analysis suggests that the use of cardioselective β-blockers should not be[doi.org]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Right sided heart failure Right sided heart failure Right sided heart failure Right sided heart failure Anasarca (massive generalized body edema) Right sided heart failure Hepatomegaly[quizlet.com] Vascular Disease, and Interdisciplinary Council on Quality of Care Outcomes Research. 2010.[nap.edu] Medication noncompliance: Frequently, diuretics are not taken as prescribed due to the urinary side-effects.[healio.com]
