  • hypomagnesaemia
  • It is suggested that oedema in babies with hypocalcaemic tetany may be more common than is generally recognized, and that a contributory factor in the production of the hypomagnesaemia may be secondary aldosteronism. (bmj.com)
  • muscular
  • The principal manifestations of tetany are tonic muscular spasms of varying duration in different parts of the body, increased electromechanical excitability of the motor and sensory nerves, and increased excitability of the autonomic nervous system leading to the malfunction of internal organs. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Tetany has two meanings, though both are related to the muscular system. (askdefine.com)
  • disturbance
  • 6. In tetany there is apparently some disturbance of the composition of the circulating fluids ordinarily prevented by the secretion of the parathyroid, which disarranges the balance of the mineral constituents of the tissues. (rupress.org)
  • serum
  • Three experiments were conducted to evaluate the effects of increasing the tetany risk ratio on blood serum Mg levels, nutrient digestion, mineral balance, and Mg supplementation source and feeding behavior. (montana.edu)
  • illness
  • A 32 year old male with short stature who has undergone bilateral cataract surgery 2 years ago but who was otherwise healthy, presented with fever and generalized body aches of 3 days duration and carpal spasms/tetany occurring on the third day of the illness. (biomedcentral.com)
  • diarrhea
  • Such spasms may be parathyroprival-that is, they may result from insufficiency or complete absence of function of the parathyroid glands (either because of surgical removal or because of an inflammation or other pathological condition)-or may be caused by fluid loss owing to repeated vomiting or diarrhea (also called gastrointestinal tetany). (thefreedictionary.com)
  • blood
  • Possibly this consists in the appearance of an injurious substance of an acid nature for such tetany may he relieved by extensive bleeding with replacement of the blood by salt solution. (rupress.org)
  • Blood pervasively omentum abates, tetany. (studyin.international)
  • iam Studyin Abroad › Forums › Eduma Forum › Blood pervasively omentum abates, tetany. (studyin.international)
  • excitability
  • It is concluded that the paraesthesiae and tetany induced by hyperventilation result solely from changes in the excitability of cutaneous and motor axons in the peripheral nerve, presumably due to an alteration in the electrical properties of the axonal membrane resulting from a reduced plasma [Ca2+]. (mariusblomstervik.no)
  • complete
  • Failure to produce tetany experimentally is probably due to the fact that some parathyroid tissue remains after an apparently complete extirpation. (rupress.org)
  • When extirpation is complete tetany appears, even in herbivora. (rupress.org)
