6,295 Possible Causes for valves

  • Patulous Eustachian Tube

    CONCLUSION: Patulous ET seems to be caused by a concave defect in the tubal valve's anterolateral wall.[] It may be open or close like a valve to allow air flow and equalize pressure. With a patulous eustachian tube the valve is open for extended periods of time.[] […] breathing improved in 9 of 11 patients (81.8%), while voice autophony improved in 8 patients (72.7%); posterior cushion curvature became inverted and less wide, and the valve[]

  • Viral Lower Respiratory Infection

    The facemask was connected to the rebreathing bag via a three-way valve.[] The three-way valve was switched at the end of expiration, so that the infant subsequently breathed from the rebreathing bag.[]

  • Pneumonia

    Patients may have secretions in their upper airway that require suctioning and require assisted ventilation with a bag valve mask.[] Waveform capnography can be used with a bag valve mask or advanced airway to determine airway patency and effective air exchange in the lungs.[]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    Called also myocardial ischemia . ileocecal insufficiency inability of the ileocecal valve to prevent backflow of contents from the cecum into the ileum. placental insufficiency[] […] inadequate velopharyngeal closure , due to a condition such as cleft palate or muscular dysfunction, resulting in defective speech. venous insufficiency inadequacy of the venous valves[] Called also ischemic myocardial necrosis. hepatic insufficiency inadequate liver function, short of hepatic failure. ileocecal insufficiency inability of the ileocecal valve[]

  • Streptococcal Infection

    These infections affect various areas of the body, including the throat, middle ear, sinuses, lungs, skin, tissue under the skin, heart valves, and bloodstream.[] Rashes and neurological problems also may occur, and people with rheumatic fever may have permanent damage to one or more heart valves.[] These gram-positive , sphere-shaped (coccal) bacteria cause many disorders, including strep throat, pneumonia, and wound, skin, heart valve, and bloodstream infections.[]

  • Acute Gastroenteritis

    Inflammation of any segment of the ileum and the ileocecal valve. Inflammation of any segment of the small intestine.[]

  • Skin Infection

    MRSA can cause pneumonia or severe infections of the blood, bones, surgical wounds, heart valves, and lungs.[] Endocarditis – Infection of the heart valves that can lead to heart failure. Osteomyelitis – Infection of the bones that causes severe inflammation.[] The areas it can spread to include the: esophagus heart valves intestines liver lungs Preventive measures as well as early treatment can go a long way in preventing candida[]

  • Pharyngitis

    The first is a condition that can damage the heart valves, and the second can damage the kidneys.[] […] longer) RF without carditis: 5 years or until age 21 (whichever is longer) Surgical Prophylaxis for patients with RF: only required for patients with carditis and synthetic valve[] Severe rheumatic fever can result in damage to the valves of the heart. Epidemiology Pharyngitis is common worldwide.[]

  • Urinary Tract Infection

    Anatomic conditions can predispose to UTI: stasis or obstruction, posterior urethral valves, bladder or ureteral diverticulum, urinary tract stones, meningomyelocele, vesicoureteral[] "Genitourinary infection and barotrauma as complications of 'P-valve' use in drysuit divers" . Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine . 39 (4): 210–2. PMID 22752741 .[]

  • Appendicitis

    The location of the base of the appendix is relatively constant, located roughly between the ileocecal valve and the apex of the cecum.[] Meckel's diverticula are located 60-100 cm from the ileocecal valve, typically in the right lower quadrant or lower central abdomen. 19 Inflammation occurs due to mucosal[] […] peptic ulcer ) enlarged normal appendix as almost 50% of asymptomatic patients can have an appendix diameter greater than 6 mm on CT 12 on CT, identify first the ileocecal valve[]
