232 Possible Causes for Lower Limb Ischemia

  • Arteriosclerosis

    Plaques form most commonly in large elastic arteries (e.g. aorta, carotids, iliacs), and large and medium-sized muscular arteries (e.g. coronary, renal, lower limb, mesenteric[radiopaedia.org] limbs: peripheral vascular disease gut: mesenteric ischemia or infarction aneurysmal dilatation thoracic or abdominal aortic aneurysm common iliac artery aneurysm popliteal[radiopaedia.org] […] embolism) heart: acute coronary syndrome (angina, myocardial infarction), cardiac failure, arrhythmia brain: TIA, stroke kidneys: chronic renal impairment, hypertension lower[radiopaedia.org]

J Vasc Surg 2013; 57:44–49. 14.[ejs.eg.net] Revascularization to increase blood flow is the therapy of choice for people with critical limb ischemia to help heal ischemic ulcers or gangrene.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Alopecia Areata

    Alopecia areata, also known as spot baldness, is a condition in which hair is lost from some or all areas of the body. [1] Often it results in a few bald spots on the scalp, each about the size of a coin. [2] Psychological stress may result. [2] People are generally otherwise healthy. [2] In a few cases, all the hair[…][en.wikipedia.org]
