  • Diagnosis
  • Here we describe a case of PVOD presenting with recurrent episodes of acute non-cardiogenic pulmonary oedema with only a borderline increase in pulmonary artery pressure, confounding the diagnosis until surgical lung biopsy was performed. (bmj.com)
  • risk
  • Concern over the risk of precipitating pulmonary oedema led us to use inhaled nitric oxide to predict the safety and efficacy of sildenafil. (bmj.com)
  • In view of the risk of precipitating pulmonary oedema with vasodilator therapy, we also report on the use of inhaled nitric oxide to predict the safety and efficacy of sildenafil. (bmj.com)
  • syndrome
  • Physical examination, laboratory analysis, thoracic radiography, echocardiography, a computed tomography scan and an ante mortem lung biopsy demonstrated severe arterial hypoxemia and severe PH but were not diagnostic for a known disease syndrome. (biomedcentral.com)
  • It is a syndrome characterized by marked pulmonary hypertension that causes hypoxemia secondary to right-to-left shunting of blood at the foramen ovale and ductus arteriosus. (medscape.com)
  • In contrast to adult primary pulmonary hypertension, the newborn syndrome is not defined by a specific pressure of the pulmonary circulation. (medscape.com)
  • Along with graft versus host disease (GVHD) and cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection , veno-occlusive disease (VOD) or Sinusoidal Obstruction Syndrome (SOS), is one of the most frequently encountered serious complications after stem cell transplantation . (medscape.com)
  • The initiating pathophysiological events have prompted this form of liver disease be renamed sinusoidal obstruction syndrome (SOS). (medscape.com)
  • Because involvement of the hepatic veins does not appear to be essential for the development of clinical signs of veno-occlusive disease, a proposal has been made to change the name of the disease to sinusoidal obstruction syndrome. (medscape.com)
  • tumor
  • In the initial report, unique pathologic changes in 21 patients were described with non-occluding microscopic tumor emboli limited to the small pulmonary arterial vessel wall, isolated or clumped in the vessel lumen and often with secondary thrombosis. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Thus, PTTM is thought to be a unique clinical entity based on the presence of intimal proliferation, distinguishing it from obstructive pulmonary tumor emboli. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Interstitial
  • Interstitial lung disease (ILD), or diffuse parenchymal lung disease (DPLD), is a group of lung diseases affecting the interstitium (the tissue and space around the air sacs of the lungs). (wikipedia.org)
  • But in interstitial lung disease, the repair process goes awry and the tissue around the air sacs (alveoli) becomes scarred and thickened. (wikipedia.org)
  • The acronym chILD is used for this group of diseases and is derived from the English name, Children's Interstitial Lung Diseases - chILD. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 2013 interstitial lung disease affected 595,000 people globally. (wikipedia.org)
  • A proper and detailed history looking for the occupational exposures, and for signs of conditions listed above is the first and probably the most important part of the workup in patients with interstitial lung disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed] Chest radiography is usually the first test to detect interstitial lung diseases, but the chest radiograph can be normal in up to 10% of patients, especially early on the disease process. (wikipedia.org)
  • Interstitial lung diseases can be classified according to radiologic patterns. (wikipedia.org)
  • 2016
  • Genetic screening of EIF2AK4 was performed in index cases and relatives between November 2011 and July 2016 and histological pulmonary examination was carried out in patients who received a lung transplant or died. (revespcardiol.org)
  • echocardiography
  • Echocardiography is considered the most reliable noninvasive test to establish the diagnosis, assess cardiac function, and exclude associated structural heart disease. (medscape.com)
  • Systemic
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease. (stlukes-stl.com)
  • Normal pulmonary circulation is a high-flow, low-resistance circuit capable of accommodating the entire right ventricular output at one fifth the pressure of the systemic circulation level. (medscape.com)
  • Bosentan is used to treat people with moderate pulmonary arterial hypertension and to reduce the number of digital ulcers - open wounds on especially on fingertips and less commonly the knuckles - in people with systemic scleroderma. (wikipedia.org)
  • oedema
  • Concern over the risk of precipitating pulmonary oedema led us to use inhaled nitric oxide to predict the safety and efficacy of sildenafil. (bmj.com)
  • In view of the risk of precipitating pulmonary oedema with vasodilator therapy, we also report on the use of inhaled nitric oxide to predict the safety and efficacy of sildenafil. (bmj.com)
  • infection
  • Pertussis (whooping cough) is a disease of uncontrollable coughing as a result of infection caused by bacteria Bordetella pertussis Types of food to prevent and treat Pertussis 1. (healthblogs.org)
  • survival
  • Determine the incidence of relapse, disease-free survival, and overall survival of patients treated with this regimen. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The disease is progressive and fatal, with median survival of about 2 years from the time of diagnosis to death. (wikipedia.org)
  • management
  • The information gained from this study could provide evidence to support use on an implantable infusion system for the management of other disease states requiring chronic intravenous therapy. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • presence
  • Exercise-Induced Pulmonary Hemorrhage (EIPH), also known as "bleeding" or a "bleeding attack", refers to the presence of blood in the airways of the lung in association with exercise. (wikipedia.org)
  • thus
  • Both are fungal diseases, although they rarely seriously reduce plant growth and thus do not generally require control. (wikipedia.org)
