Vascular segments in the human spleen. (1/255)Corrosion casts of human splenic arterial trees revealed the presence of two segments-a superior, and an inferior - in 84% of cases and three segments - a superior, a middle and an inferior - in 16% of cases. These segments are separated by avascular planes. (+info)
Effects of imipramine, an uptake inhibitor, on double-peaked constrictor responses to periarterial nerve stimulation in isolated, perfused canine splenic arteries. (2/255)Using a cannula insertion method, periarterial nerve electrical stimulations were performed at 1 and 10 Hz in the isolated, perfused canine splenic artery. Electrical nerve stimulation readily caused double-peaked vasoconstrictions. The 1st-peak response at 1 Hz was not influenced by treatment with imipramine but the 2nd one was significantly enhanced by it. The 2nd-peak response was markedly blocked by prazosin. An additional treatment with alpha,beta-methylene ATP, a P2X-purinoceptor desensitizer, abolished electrical stimulation-induced vascular responses that remained. At 10 Hz, the responses to electrical stimulation were not significantly influenced by imipramine. On the other hand, the imipramine treatment inhibited the tyramine-induced vasoconstriction but potentiated the noradrenaline-induced one. ATP-induced responses were not modified by imipramine. From these results, it is concluded that 1) the 1st-peaked constriction is mainly due to a P2X-purinoceptor-dependent mechanism, 2) the 2nd one is mainly due to an alpha1-adrenoceptor-dependent mechanism, and 3) presynaptic uptake mechanisms may perform an important role in the regulation of vascular reactivity, especially at a low frequency.

Post-traumatic pancreatitis with associated aneurysm of the splenic artery: report of 2 cases and review of the literature. (3/255)In patients with acute pancreatitis, profuse gastrointestinal bleeding is associated with a high death rate. The cause of such bleeding must be evaluated and the bleeding controlled urgently. Aneurysm formation is usually the cause of the bleeding. Angiography is needed to make a definitive diagnosis and the bleeding site should be controlled by angiographic embolization if possible. If this fails, aneurysm resection is necessary. Two patients are described. Both had aneurysms of the splenic artery, presenting as massive gastrointestinal bleeding in one patient and bleeding into an associated pseudocyst in the other. They required surgical repair, which was successful in both cases. (+info)
Effects of prolonged cold storage on double peaked vasoconstrictor responses to periarterial nerve stimulation in isolated canine splenic arteries. (4/255)1. P2X-Purinoceptors and alpha1-adrenoceptors have previously been shown to involve in the double peaked vasoconstrictor responses to periarterial electrical nerve stimulation in the isolated and perfused canine splenic artery. The present study made an attempt to investigate effects of prolonged cold storage (7 days at 4 degrees C) on vasoconstrictor responses to periarterial electrical nerve stimulation, tyramine, noradrenaline and adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP) in the isolated canine splenic artery. 2. The periarterial nerve stimulation (1-10 Hz) readily causes a double peaked vasoconstriction in the non-stored preparations. After cold stored for 7 days, the double peaked vasoconstriction was still recognized, although the response became significantly smaller. The first phase was decreased relatively greater than the second phase by the cold storage. 3. In the cold stored preparations, the dose-response curve for tyramine was shifted to the right in a parallel manner. Prazosin almost completely inhibited tyramine-induced vasoconstriction but alpha,beta-methylene ATP failed to influence the response to tyramine. 4. The vasoconstrictor responses to noradrenaline and ATP were not significantly modified by the prolonged cold storage. 5. From these results, it is concluded that the functions of sympathetic co-transmission of purinergic components might be influenced more than that of adrenergic components in the cold storage canine splenic artery.

Splenic artery aneurysms: methods of laparoscopic repair. (5/255)PURPOSE: Surgical therapy for splenic artery aneurysms (SAAs) has traditionally consisted of a laparotomy with resection of the aneurysm and possibly a splenectomy. Our early experience with the laparoscopic approach to treat SAAs is reported. METHODS: A retrospective review of medical records was conducted on all patients who underwent laparoscopic resection of SAAs at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation from May 1996 to August 1997. RESULTS: Four patients with SAAs, three women and one man, with an average age of 55 years (range, 37 to 63 years), underwent successful laparoscopic SAA repair. The average size of the aneurysm was 3.2 cm (range, 2.5 to 5.0 cm). Three patients underwent an aneurysm resection, whereas one patient underwent simple ligation. Intraoperative ultrasound scanning with Doppler was used in three cases as a means of localizing the aneurysm and identifying all feeding vessels; the complete cessation of flow within the aneurysm in the case in which the feeding vessels were simply ligated was also documented. The average intraoperative time was 150 minutes (range, 100 to 190 minutes). The mean estimated blood loss was 105 mL (range, 20 to 300 mL). There were no intraoperative complications. The average hospital stay was 2.2 days (range, 1 to 4 days). CONCLUSION: The laparoscopic approach to splenic artery aneurysm by aneurysmectomy or splenic artery ligation can be safe and effective. The laparoscopic approach affords a short hospital stay and an effective result. (+info)
Intractable oesophageal variceal bleeding caused by splenic arteriovenous fistula: treatment by transcatheter arterial embolization. (6/255)We describe a rare case of splenic arteriovenous fistula and venous aneurysm which developed after splenectomy in a 40-year-old woman who presented with epigastralgia, watery diarrhoea, repeated haematemesis and melaena caused by hyperkinetic status of the portal system and bleeding of oesophageal varices. It was diagnosed by computed tomography and angiography, and obliterated with giant Gianturco steel coils. (+info)
Extrasplenic pseudoaneurysm. The role of color flow Doppler ultrasound in diagnosis. (7/255)Pseudoaneurysm of the splenic artery has been rarely reported and the Doppler echocardiographic finding seldom described. Herein we report a rare case of huge extrasplenic pseudoaneurysm, which was detected by color flow Doppler ultrasonography and successfully treated by ligation of the splenic artery and resection of the pseudoaneurysm.

An unusual Ca(2+) entry pathway activated by protein kinase C in dog splenic artery. (8/255)The characteristics of the Ca(2+) entry pathways that are activated by protein kinase C (PKC) in canine splenic artery were investigated. Phorbol 12, 13-dibutyrate (PDB) contracted tissues and increased Ca(2+) influx. PDB-induced contraction was reduced by preincubation of tissues in Ca(2+)-free Krebs' solution (1 mM EGTA) but was unaffected when Ca(2+)-free solution was applied after contraction was initiated with PDB. In contrast, (45)Ca influx and contraction induced by PDB were resistant to nifedipine, Cd(2+), Gd(3+), La(3+), or Ni(2+) whether added before or during exposure to PDB. Indeed, Cd(2+) reduced (45)Ca(2+) efflux and potentiated Ca(2+) influx, but not PDB-induced contraction. Norepinephrine (NE)-induced contractions were inhibited by preincubation in Ca(2+)-free Krebs' solution (1 mM EGTA). Nifedipine (10 microM) led to a small reduction in the NE-induced contraction but was without effect on (45)Ca(2+) influx. Pretreatment for 16 min with Cd(2+), Gd(3+), or La(3+) (each 1 mM) reduced or abolished NE-induced contraction and Ca(2+) influx. Application of these cations after exposure to NE did not affect (45)Ca(2+) influx but reduced tension. The Q(10) for the increase in (45)Ca(2+) influx was approximately 2 for high K(+) and NE, but 4 for PDB. The results suggest that stimulation of PKC in dog splenic artery activates a Ca(2+) entry pathway that is resistant to di- and trivalent cations. The inhibition of Ca(2+) influx by preincubating with cations during short-term exposure to NE may represent an action on Ca(2+) turnover that precedes activation of PKC. (+info)
There are several types of aneurysms, including:
1. Thoracic aneurysm: This type of aneurysm occurs in the chest cavity and is usually caused by atherosclerosis or other conditions that affect the aorta.
2. Abdominal aneurysm: This type of aneurysm occurs in the abdomen and is usually caused by high blood pressure or atherosclerosis.
3. Cerebral aneurysm: This type of aneurysm occurs in the brain and can cause symptoms such as headaches, seizures, and stroke.
4. Peripheral aneurysm: This type of aneurysm occurs in the peripheral arteries, which are the blood vessels that carry blood to the arms and legs.
Symptoms of an aneurysm can include:
1. Pain or discomfort in the affected area
2. Swelling or bulging of the affected area
3. Weakness or numbness in the affected limb
4. Shortness of breath or chest pain (in the case of a thoracic aneurysm)
5. Headaches, seizures, or stroke (in the case of a cerebral aneurysm)
If an aneurysm is not treated, it can lead to serious complications such as:
1. Rupture: This is the most serious complication of an aneurysm and occurs when the aneurysm sac bursts, leading to severe bleeding and potentially life-threatening consequences.
2. Stroke or brain damage: If a cerebral aneurysm ruptures, it can cause a stroke or brain damage.
3. Infection: An aneurysm can become infected, which can lead to serious health problems.
4. Blood clots: An aneurysm can form blood clots, which can break loose and travel to other parts of the body, causing blockages or further complications.
5. Kidney failure: If an aneurysm is not treated, it can cause kidney failure due to the pressure on the renal arteries.
6. Heart problems: An aneurysm in the aorta can lead to heart problems such as heart failure or cardiac arrest.
7. Sepsis: If an aneurysm becomes infected, it can lead to sepsis, which is a life-threatening condition that can cause organ failure and death.
Treatment options for an aneurysm include:
1. Observation: Small aneurysms that are not causing any symptoms may not require immediate treatment and can be monitored with regular check-ups to see if they are growing or changing.
2. Surgery: Open surgery or endovascular repair are two common methods for treating aneurysms. In open surgery, the surgeon makes an incision in the abdomen to repair the aneurysm. In endovascular repair, a small tube is inserted into the affected blood vessel through an incision in the groin, and then guided to the site of the aneurysm where it is expanded to fill the aneurysm sac and seal off the aneurysm.
3. Embolization: This is a minimally invasive procedure where a small catheter is inserted into the affected blood vessel through an incision in the groin, and then guided to the site of the aneurysm where it releases tiny particles or coils that fill the aneurysm sac and seal off the aneurysm.
4. Medications: Certain medications such as antibiotics and blood thinners may be prescribed to treat related complications such as infection or blood clots.
It is important to seek medical attention if you experience any symptoms of an aneurysm, such as sudden severe headache, vision changes, difficulty speaking, weakness or numbness in the face or limbs, as prompt treatment can help prevent complications and improve outcomes.
The symptoms of hypersplenism can include fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath, and easy bruising or bleeding. The condition can be caused by a variety of factors, including infections, certain medications, and autoimmune disorders. Treatment for hypersplenism typically involves addressing the underlying cause of the condition and may involve supportive care such as blood transfusions or platelet transfusions to help raise the levels of red blood cells and platelets in the body. In severe cases, surgery to remove the spleen may be necessary.
The term hypersplenism is derived from the Greek words hyper meaning excessive or above normal, splen meaning spleen, and -ism meaning a condition or state. It was first used in the medical literature in the late 19th century to describe this rare but potentially serious condition.
Note: Portal hypertension is a common complication of liver disease, especially cirrhosis. It is characterized by elevated pressure within the portal vein system, which can lead to splanchnic vasodilation, increased blood flow, and edema in the splanchnic organ.
Symptoms: Symptoms of portal hypertension may include ascites (fluid accumulation in the abdomen), encephalopathy (mental confusion or disorientation), gastrointestinal bleeding, and jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes).
Diagnosis: The diagnosis of portal hypertension is based on a combination of clinical findings, laboratory tests, and imaging studies. Laboratory tests may include liver function tests, blood counts, and coagulation studies. Imaging studies may include ultrasonography, computed tomography (CT), or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Treatment: Treatment of portal hypertension depends on the underlying cause and may include medications to control symptoms, such as beta blockers to reduce portal pressure, antibiotics to treat infection, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to relieve pain. In severe cases, surgery or shunt procedures may be necessary.
Prognosis: The prognosis for patients with portal hypertension is generally poor, as it is often associated with advanced liver disease. The 5-year survival rate for patients with cirrhosis and portal hypertension is approximately 50%.
Example sentences for 'Aneurysm, False'
The patient was diagnosed with a false aneurysm after experiencing sudden severe pain in his leg following a fall.
The surgeon treated the false aneurysm by inserting a catheter into the affected blood vessel and using it to deliver a special coil that would seal off the dilated area.
Here are some examples of splenic diseases:
1. Enlarged Spleen (Splenomegaly): This can be caused by various conditions such as viral infections, malaria, and certain autoimmune disorders. An enlarged spleen can cause abdominal pain, fatigue, and difficulty breathing.
2. Sickle Cell Disease: This is a genetic disorder that affects the production of hemoglobin, leading to anemia and the formation of sickle-shaped red blood cells. The spleen becomes enlarged as it tries to filter out these abnormal cells.
3. Thalassemia: This is another genetic disorder that affects the production of hemoglobin, leading to anemia and the formation of abnormal red blood cells. The spleen can become enlarged in people with thalassemia.
4. Splenic Infarction: This occurs when there is a blockage of blood flow to the spleen, causing tissue death. It can be caused by various conditions such as blood clots, injury, or infection.
5. Splenic Cysts: These are fluid-filled sacs that develop within the spleen. They can be benign or malignant and can cause abdominal pain, bleeding, and other symptoms.
6. Splenic Tumors: These are abnormal growths of tissue in the spleen. They can be benign or malignant and can cause a variety of symptoms depending on their size and location.
7. Splenic Abscess: This is a collection of pus within the spleen, usually caused by an infection. It can cause fever, chills, and abdominal pain.
8. Splenectomy: This is the surgical removal of the spleen, often necessary for conditions such as enlarged spleens or cancerous tumors.
9. Trauma: The spleen can be injured by trauma to the abdomen, such as a car accident or fall. This can cause internal bleeding and other complications.
10. Infection: The spleen can become infected by bacteria, viruses, or other pathogens, leading to symptoms such as fever, chills, and abdominal pain.
It is important to note that some of these conditions can be serious and even life-threatening, so it is important to seek medical attention if you experience any symptoms that may be related to the spleen.
Symptoms of splenic infarction may include sudden severe abdominal pain, fever, nausea, vomiting, and tenderness in the abdomen. Diagnosis is typically made through imaging tests such as CT scans or ultrasound. Treatment may involve surgical removal of the affected tissue or clot, antibiotics for any associated infections, and supportive care to manage pain and other symptoms.
Here are some examples of how 'Aneurysm, Ruptured' is used in different contexts:
1. Medical literature: "The patient was rushed to the hospital with a ruptured aneurysm after experiencing sudden severe headaches and vomiting."
2. Doctor-patient communication: "You have a ruptured aneurysm, which means that your blood vessel has burst and is causing bleeding inside your body."
3. Medical research: "The study found that patients with a history of smoking are at increased risk of developing a ruptured aneurysm."
4. Emergency medical services: "The patient was transported to the hospital with a ruptured aneurysm and was in critical condition upon arrival."
5. Patient education: "To prevent a ruptured aneurysm, it is important to manage high blood pressure and avoid smoking."
If you are experiencing flank pain, it is important to seek medical attention to determine the cause and receive proper treatment. A healthcare provider will perform a physical examination, take a medical history, and order diagnostic tests such as blood work, imaging studies, or a CT scan to determine the underlying cause of the pain.
Treatment for flank pain depends on the underlying cause, but may include antibiotics for infections, pain management medication, or surgical intervention in more severe cases. It is important to follow your healthcare provider's recommendations and seek medical attention if your symptoms worsen or if you experience other concerning symptoms such as fever, nausea, or vomiting.
The severity of GIH can vary widely, ranging from mild to life-threatening. Mild cases may resolve on their own or with minimal treatment, while severe cases may require urgent medical attention and aggressive intervention.

Pseudocysts are typically caused by inflammation or injury to the pancreas, which can lead to the formation of fluid-filled spaces within the organ. These spaces are not surrounded by a layer of epithelial cells, as is the case with true pancreatic cysts.
Pancreatic pseudocysts may not cause any symptoms and may be discovered incidentally during diagnostic imaging studies. However, they can also cause abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, fever, and other symptoms depending on their size and location.
Treatment of pancreatic pseudocysts is usually conservative, involving observation, fluid drainage, and management of any underlying causes such as infection or inflammation. Surgical intervention may be necessary if the pseudocyst becomes infected, bleeds, or causes other complications.
It's important to note that while pancreatic pseudocysts are generally less serious than true cysts, they can still cause significant morbidity and mortality if left untreated or if there is a delay in diagnosis and treatment. Therefore, it's important for healthcare providers to be aware of the differences between pseudocysts and true pancreatic cysts, as well as the appropriate diagnostic and treatment approaches for each condition.
The term splenomegaly is used to describe any condition that results in an increase in the size of the spleen, regardless of the underlying cause. This can be caused by a variety of factors, such as infection, inflammation, cancer, or genetic disorders.
Splenomegaly can be diagnosed through a physical examination, where the doctor may feel the enlarged spleen during an abdominal palpation. Imaging tests, such as ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) scans, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), may also be used to confirm the diagnosis and evaluate the extent of the splenomegaly.
Treatment for splenomegaly depends on the underlying cause. For example, infections such as malaria or mononucleosis are treated with antibiotics, while cancerous conditions may require surgical intervention or chemotherapy. In some cases, the spleen may need to be removed, a procedure known as splenectomy.
In conclusion, splenomegaly is an abnormal enlargement of the spleen that can be caused by various factors and requires prompt medical attention for proper diagnosis and treatment.
