Show results in: Română

  • Takayasu Arteritis

    Little is known about the obstetrical management of patients with Takayasu arteritis (TA) who have undergone extra-anatomic vascular bypass (EAVB). We describe two cases of EAVB. Case 1 underwent EAVB due to renovascular hypertension associated with stenosis of the abdominal aorta, and Case 2 due to amaurosis[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dissecting Aortic Aneurysm

    A patient with a dissecting aneurysm of the ascending aorta had fever of unknown origin. Although his clinical picture included a number of classical features of his disorder, these were initially misinterpreted, largely because fever was the patient's chief complaint. Polymorphonuclear leukocytes sequestered within[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

    We present 4 patients, 4 months to 10 years of age, with thoracic outlet syndrome. All were referred to the brachial plexus clinic. Three patients were diagnosed with vascular thoracic outlet syndrome after clinical evaluation and diagnostic imaging. Three had a cervical rib and 1 had an anomalous first rib. All[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Syncope

    The blood pressure and pulse are tested in the lying, sitting, and standing positions. Unequal blood pressures in each arm is a sign of aortic dissection .[medicinenet.com] blood pressure in the two arms.[mc.vanderbilt.edu] […] well as cardiac findings such as carotid bruit, jugular venous distension, rales, a systolic murmur (of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy or aortic stenosis), pericardial rub or unequal[mc.vanderbilt.edu]

  • Fibromuscular Dysplasia

    FMD in the arms and legs can cause limb discomfort with exercise or can lead to unequal blood pressure in the arms.[fmdsa.org] FMD involving the arteries that supply the intestines, liver and spleen with blood (mesenteric arteries) can result in abdominal pain after eating and unintended weight loss[fmdsa.org]

  • Resistant Hypertension

    A focused physical exam should evaluate the patient for both secondary causes of hypertension (body mass index, unequal blood pressures on both arms, abdominal bruit, signs[renalandurologynews.com] Since inappropriately small cuffs may cause elevated blood pressure readings, the cuff bladder must encircle at least 80% of the upper arm circumference.[renalandurologynews.com]

  • Subclavian Steal Syndrome

    Subclavian steal syndrome ( SSS ), also called subclavian steal phenomenon or subclavian steal steno-occlusive disease , is a constellation of signs and symptoms that arise from retrograde (reversed) blood flow in the vertebral artery or the internal thoracic artery , due to a proximal stenosis (narrowing) and/or[…][en.wikipedia.org]

    FMD in the arms and legs can cause limb discomfort with exercise or can lead to unequal blood pressure in the arms.[fmdsa.org] FMD involving the arteries that supply the intestines, liver and spleen with blood (mesenteric arteries) can result in abdominal pain after eating and unintended weight loss[fmdsa.org]
