Workup

  • A recent workup for cardiac, renal, and liver disease, including two-dimensional echocardiogram, liver and renal function tests, and abdominal ultrasound, was unremarkable. He reported a 15-pack year history of smoking and quit 3 years ago.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Pericardial Effusion
  • Pericardial effusions were excluded by serial echocardiograms. The sums of the amplitude of QRS complexes from the 12 ECG leads (Sigma QRS) were correlated with the corresponding WTs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • […] failure (LV ejection fraction 55%) · Detects ventricular hypertrophy · Detects pericardial effusion Serum albumin · Reduced in hepatic disease and nephrotic syndrome · Unchanged in heart failure Liver function tests · Abnormal in cirrhosis (raised AST[tirthankaronline.blogspot.com]
  • Pericardial effusion is the term for edema within the pericardial space between the outer layers of the heart. It is also known as a hydropericardium. Pulmonary edema is the term for edema within the lungs.[healthhype.com]
  • Electrocardiogram features reminiscent of myocardial infarction were noted ( Figure 1 ), and an echocardiogram demonstrated marked left ventricular hypertrophy with minimal pericardial effusion. Fig. 1.[academic.oup.com]
Thrombocytosis
  • The patient was moderately dehydrated and the blood investigations were remarkable for hyponatraemia (126 mEq/l), leukocytosis (19.4 10(3)/l (46% lymphocytes)), thrombocytosis (637 10(3)/l), hypoalbuminaemia (albumin 1.9 g/dl) and elevated C reactive[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Nodular Glomerulosclerosis
  • Percutaneous renal biopsy showed nodular glomerulosclerosis, mesangial matrix expansion, and thickening of glomerular basement membrane (GBM). Immunofluorescence study showed no glomerular deposition of immunoglobulin or complement.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Pleural Effusion
  • Chest radiograph at that time revealed bilateral pleural effusions that were both reportedly milky in appearance when drained by thoracenteses.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Pre- and post-treatment data were analyzed using matched pairs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The proper diagnosis and prompt treatment is mandatory because most of these diseases are associated with a significant degree of morbidity. The authors present the case of a 76-year-old woman admitted for treatment of anasarca.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Prognosis Multiple anecdotal remedies exist, yet none are proven or reported in scientific literature. Although survival rates are low, some water puppies do survive provided they receive immediate veterinary treatment.[embracepetinsurance.com]

Etiology

  • Congo-red-negative microfibrils have been described in various glomerular diseases, some of which have no known etiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • EDEMA/ ANASARCA/ ANGIOEDEMA Etiologies The accumulation of fluid in the intercellular space of subcutaneous tissue or in body cavities is referred to as edema. Anasarca refers to a diffuse generalized edema of multiple organ systems.[thebigl.co]
  • Clues generated by the history, physical examination, and targeted evaluation help to identify the underlying etiology of peripheral edema.[online.epocrates.com]
  • Laboratory test results for possible etiologies were negative. Discontinuation of amlodipine resulted in dramatic improvement.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Pathophysiology

  • This case report underlines the pathophysiological role of tissue edema in the downward spiral of hepato-renal and cardio-renal dysfunction and illustrates that very large volumes of tissue fluid can be safely and effectively removed with continuous renal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • However, this low risk modification of standard pulmonary artery catheterization provides additional information which is clinically useful in searching for and avoiding complications of cirrhosis, as well as offering a clearer understanding of pathophysiology[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • I'm thinking about the pathophysiology of the condition. The patient retains all this fluid because of underlying chemisty imbalances. Often low protein is at the heart of it.[allnurses.com]
  • Pathophysiology In the presence of hypoalbuminemia as seen in nephrotic syndrome or other disease entities, anasarca occurs as a result of low osmotic pressure in the capillaries.[healthfixit.com]

Prevention

  • The American Academy of Pediatrics recommendations for prevention of iron deficiency anemia are reviewed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We suggest the use of a suprapubic urinary catheter for preoperative drainage because of its ease of use in preventing fluid leakage from the possibly malignant tumor.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In order to prevent valve thrombosis and stroke, argatroban was initiated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Listed below are the effective treatments/ remedies for the prevention of anasarca that may help to improve and to reduce swelling of the skin significantly. 1. Avoiding salt, water pills, etc. – It prevent skin breakdown 2.[healthosphere.com]
