84 Possible Causes for Masseter Spasm

Show results in: Italiano

  • Tetanus

    It also had a full blown clinical picture of neonatal tetanus including: masseter spasm; generalized rigidity; a high pitched cry: and intermittent opisthotonos posturing.[] Severe masseter and intercostal muscle spasm impaired airway access and ventilation.[] Acute renal failure developed in an elderly woman with a rapidly progressive illness characterized by nuchal rigidity, limb spasm, repetitive grunting vocalizations without[]

  • Malignant Hyperthermia

    The triad of masseter spasm, hypercarbia and hyperthermia within 30 minutes of exposure to triggering factors was present and was treated successfully with dantrolene.[] Neither masseter spasm nor rigidity of the limbs was seen during induction. Body temperature (BT) at induction was 36.0 degrees C.[] spasm if succinylcholine has been used Generalized muscle rigidity Later signs Hyperkalemia Rapid increase in core body temperature Grossly elevated blood levels of creatine[]

  • Central Core Disease

    Masseter spasm and malignant hyperthermia: a retrospective review of a hospital-based paediatric otolaryngology practice.[] IVCT, in vitro contracture test MH, malignant hyperthermia MMR, masseter muscle spasm RYR1, ryanodine receptor Central core disease (CCD) is a dominantly inherited congenital[] […] muscle spasm (MMR) or other metabolic abnormality.[]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Avoid succinylcholine; it may induce exaggerated contracture, masseter spasm, laryngospasm, or severe hyperkalemia.[]

  • Hypercapnia

    spasm, rigidity of other muscle groups, mottled skin, increased T C (late sign) * Keep MH in mind if CO2 continues to rise despite adequate minute ventilation Management[] […] available immediately (e.g. increased CK, myoglobinuria, worsening metabolic acidosis) * Immediately available clinical signs are non-specific (e.g. increased HR) * Beware masseter[]

  • Muscle Spasm

    This retrospective study was undertaken to examine the management and outcome of children who developed isolated masseter muscle spasm (MMS) after the administration of intravenous[] An increased masseter tone of this degree might be interpreted as "masseteric muscle spasm" by the anaesthetist.[]

  • Hyperpyrexia

    Stop surgery if it is elective and if there are signs of masseter spasm or a fulminant crisis.[] All the classical signs such as masseter spasm (biting of the tube), increased rigidity of the limbs, a rapid and sudden rise in the body temperature (107 F, 41.67 C), tachycardia[] Spasm of the masseter muscle is often first noted. There is muscular rigidity despite a paralysing agent. If breathing is still spontaneous there is tachypnoea.[]

  • Bruxism

    Ask about temporalis and masseter spasms/pain in your patients with blepharospasm and cervical dystonia.[] […] indentations. 5,6 Pain and spasms involving the jaw muscles associated with bruxism are commonly mislabeled as TMJ dysfunction.[] […] hypertrophy, tooth wear and sensitivity, morning stiffness or pain in the temporalis and masseter muscles, clicking or locking of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and tongue[]

  • Anesthetic

    The incidence of masseter spasm varies depending on the anaesthetic technique.[] The Masseter spasm was evident after the second dose and consequently the halothane was discontinued.[] It would appear that an increase in masseter muscle tone with suxamethonium is normal and an exaggerated response may clinically be taken to be masseter spasm.[]

  • Dantrolene

    spasm • Unexplained metabolic acidosis 18. • Initiate MH protocol: – Optimize oxygenation and ventilation: • Increase FiO2 to 100% • Increase RR and TV to maximise ventilation[] […] of increased CO2 – Confirm other signs of MH: • Generalised rigidity • PVC (or other signs of hyperkalemia) • Tachycardia • Unstable hemodynamic stability (high or low) • Masseter[]
