  • cardiac
  • Cardiac MRI and endomyocardial biopsy revealed active myocarditis. (ahajournals.org)
  • Release of cardiac troponins in acute myocardial infarction. (jaoa.org)
  • Cardiac troponin levels rise to about 20 to 50 times the upper reference limit (the 99th percentile of values in a reference control group) in patients who have a "classic" acute myocardial infarction (MI) and sustain sufficient myocardial necrosis to result in abnormally elevated levels of the MB fraction of creatine kinase (CK-MB). (jaoa.org)
  • Clinicians can now diagnose episodes of microinfarction by sensitive assays that detect cardiac troponin elevations above the upper reference limit, even though CK-MB levels may still be in the normal reference range (not shown). (jaoa.org)
  • Cardiac exam reveals a regular rhythm of 30 beats/min with no murmurs, rubs, or extra heart sounds. (mdedge.com)
  • diagnosis
  • This article reports two cases who both developed upper extremity deep vein thromboses, the first being a 67-year-old bowler and the second a 25-year-old barista, and illustrates that effort thrombosis should be included in the differential diagnosis in any patient with symptoms concerning DVT associated with repetitive activity. (hindawi.com)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging of the shoulder and upper arm musculature may reveal denervation within days, allowing prompt diagnosis. (aafp.org)
  • Admission diagnosis included hypokalemia, acute kidney injury, and renal tubal acidosis. (hindawi.com)
  • arterial
  • Postembolization control angiography revealed embolic occlusion of the angular artery of the left middle cerebral artery (MCA), and an intra-arterial bolus of 8 mg of abciximab was given. (ajnr.org)
  • patient's
  • The patient's laboratory studies did not reveal any infectious process. (thefreelibrary.com)
  • Sinus tachycardia is indicated by a consistent P-P interval at a rate of 110 beats/min, idioventricular rhythm with a regular (but not normal) rate, and prolonged QRS interval of 148 ms. In this patient's case, the tachycardia was presumed to be due to his upper respiratory infection. (mdedge.com)
  • tendon
  • Acute injuries include ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) rupture, medial epicondyle avulsion, biceps rupture, loose-body formation, acute mus-culocutaneous strain or tendon rupture, and acute subluxation of the ulnar nerve. (alpfmedical.info)
  • cerebellar
  • A 22-year-old right-handed woman was referred for management of jerky movements and abnormal posturing of the right hand that had developed since acute hemorrhage in the right cerebellar hemisphere secondary to a cavernous malformation. (biomedcentral.com)
  • myocarditis
  • Clinicians should consider disseminated gonococcal infection when a patient presents with acute myocarditis, especially if there are concurrent skin and joint lesions. (hindawi.com)
  • infarction
  • 3 This led to the 2009 revision by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA), which now defines TIA as a transient episode of neurologic dysfunction caused by focal cerebral, spinal cord, or retinal ischemia, without acute infarction. (aafp.org)
  • Acute BMP infarction may present with flaccid tetraplegia mimicking neuromuscular disorders. (springermedizin.de)
  • repetitive
  • While most cases of effort thrombosis occur in young elite athletes with strenuous upper extremity activity, any repetitive activity capable of damaging vascular endothelium can cause it. (hindawi.com)
  • chronic
  • Knowledge of the acute and chronic disorders that commonly cause shoulder pain is important because many of them can be managed without referral to a subspecialist. (aafp.org)
  • Injuries to these soft tissues are classified as either acute or chronic injuries. (anabolicminds.com)
  • Acute injuries include ligament sprains and muscle strains, whereas tendinitis is a common example of a chronic injury. (anabolicminds.com)
  • In contrast, chronic compartment syndrome is said to occur from excessive exercise or strain in the extremities . (arjonline.org)
  • inflammatory
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) is an acute autoimmune inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy. (thefreelibrary.com)
  • Nerve conduction studies of the patient reported early stage acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (Table 1). (thefreelibrary.com)
  • The effects of NSAIDs on the inflammatory reaction following an acute soft-tissue injury are small and do not appear to change the natural history of these injuries to any great extent. (anabolicminds.com)
  • limbs
  • Orthopedics complications are quite common: soft-tissue pathologies of the upper limbs, degenerative pathologies of the large joints or spinal cord, fall-related fractures. (polioaustralia.org.au)
  • modalities
  • Although NECT is relatively insensitive in identifying new and small cortical or subcortical regions of non-perfusion and more sophisticated imaging modalities are available, it remains a reliable technique for identifying acute contraindications to thrombolytic therapy, particularly intracranial hemorrhage. (emra.org)
  • uncommon
  • The occurrence of associated Injuries among hospitalized acute spinal trauma patients in Taiwan is not uncommon, and results in an obvious effect on medical utilization. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Exercise-induced compartment syndrome of the hand and upper extremity is a rare and uncommon condition with limited literature and research . (arjonline.org)
  • focal
  • Physical exam demonstrates guarding of the extremity with a slightly flexed and pronated arm, elbow swelling, and focal tenderness. (orthobullets.com)
