Did you mean: primarily in the legs, Respiratory Muscle Weakness, severe, muscle wasting

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    […] diagnosis of infants with congenital contractures and severe muscle weakness by wasting mainly confined to the upper limbs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Progressive respiratory muscle weakness with bulbar involvement is the main cause of morbidity and mortality in type I and severe type II spinal muscular atrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The condition primarily affects the muscles that control chewing and swallowing, chest wall muscles, and arm and leg muscles.[ucsfbenioffchildrens.org]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1

    atrophy type 1 with paradoxical breathing were placed on high-span PIP PEEP when sleeping from the point of diagnosis of spinal muscular atrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] They have extremely weak muscle tone (hypotonia) at birth. Their respiratory muscles are very weak and they often do not survive past infancy due to respiratory failure.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov] This form affects primarily the muscles in the legs.[mda.org]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Excluding lower motor neuron FA and FL cases, progressive muscular atrophy comprised 4% of the sample and had a prognosis similar to typical limb onset ALS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Respiratory muscle weakness and failure is a common complication late in the course of disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] by often asymmetric and primarily distal LMN involvement in the lower limbs.[doi.org]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    SMA type IV is the least severe type of the disease where weakness and muscle wasting generally start in adulthood.[stemcellthailand.org] Respiratory muscle weakness, which predisposes the majority of patients suffering from type 1 or type 2 to nocturnal hypoventilation, recurrent infections and respiratory[symptoma.com] This form affects primarily the muscles in the legs.[mda.org]

  • Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Characterised by severe muscle wasting as in SMA type I accompanied by congenital bone fractures PCH Spinal muscular atrophy with pontocerebellar hypoplasia (SMA-PCH) Pontocerebellar[ipfs.io] Etiology Pathophysiology Clinical features The most common causes of death among patients with SMA are respiratory insufficiency (due to respiratory muscle weakness ) and[amboss.com] This form affects primarily the muscles in the legs.[mda.org]

  • Dermatomyositis

    , dysphonia, dysphagia Less common: respiratory muscle weakness, visual changes, abdominal pain Systemic complications/association: Cardiomyopathy Cardiac conduction defects[physio-pedia.com] They are primarily used after injury or surgery to immobilize the leg. They are larger in size than other braces, due to their function.[en.wikipedia.org] atrophy).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    New contributions to the theory of muscular atrophy in supranuclear paralysis especially in cerebral hemiplegia (Habilitationsschrift).[doi.org] Children with congenital-onset DM1, once they survive the crucial neonatal period of respiratory muscle weakness with the help of assisted ventilation, usually show improvements[mda.org] Muscle weakness in type 2 primarily involves the muscles of the neck, shoulders, elbows, and hips.[web.archive.org]

  • Muscular Atrophy

    Neuromyopathy associated ketosis should be considered in all patients with severe muscle wasting presenting with an elevated anion gap metabolic ketoacidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CONCLUSIONS SMA 1 and 2 result in diffuse respiratory muscle weakness with greater weakness of the intercostal muscles compared with the diaphragm.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] The condition primarily affects the muscles that control chewing and swallowing, chest wall muscles, and arm and leg muscles.[ucsfbenioffchildrens.org]

  • Adult Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    […] spinal muscular atrophy and juvenile asymmetric segmental spinal muscular atrophy.[symptoma.com] Etiology Pathophysiology Clinical features The most common causes of death among patients with SMA are respiratory insufficiency (due to respiratory muscle weakness ) and[amboss.com] The condition primarily affects the muscles that control chewing and swallowing, chest wall muscles, and arm and leg muscles.[ucsfbenioffchildrens.org]

  • X-linked Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Characterised by severe muscle wasting as in SMA type I accompanied by congenital bone fractures PCH Spinal muscular atrophy with pontocerebellar hypoplasia (SMA-PCH) Pontocerebellar[ipfs.io] Etiology Pathophysiology Clinical features The most common causes of death among patients with SMA are respiratory insufficiency (due to respiratory muscle weakness ) and[amboss.com] This form affects primarily the muscles in the legs.[mda.org]
