  • infarction
  • Axial enhanced CT scan shows (a) an intimal dissection of the celiac artery with opacification of true and false lumen, (b) a dissection membrane in the splenic artery causing poor contrast flow and thrombosis of the false lumen, and (c) a posterolateral splenic infarction. (hindawi.com)
  • Splenic infarction is also more common in hematological disorders with associated splenomegaly, such as the myeloproliferative disorders. (wikipedia.org)
  • Splenic infarction can also result from a sickle cell crisis in patients with sickle cell anemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • Any factor that directly compromises the splenic artery can cause infarction. (wikipedia.org)
  • Splenic infarction can be due to vasculitis or disseminated intravascular coagulation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Various other conditions have been associated with splenic infarction in case reporters, for example granulomatosis with polyangiitis or treatment with medications that predispose to vasospasm or blood clot formation, such as vasoconstrictors used to treat esophageal varices, sumatriptan or bevacizumab. (wikipedia.org)
  • Splenic infarction can be induced for the treatment of such conditions as portal hypertension or splenic injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • arterioles
  • When these arteries then reach the white pulp, and become covered with periarteriolar lymphoid sheaths, the name changes again to central arteries (or central arterioles). (wikipedia.org)
  • complication
  • Gastrointestinal bleeding due to an erosion of the superior mesenteric artery: an exceptional fatal complication of pancreatic pseudocyst," Pan African Medical Journal , vol. 12, no. 62, 2012. (hindawi.com)
  • Superior
  • It emphasises the importance of performing selective catheterization of the celiac and superior mesenteric artery in all patients with signs of portal hypertension without evidence of chronic liver disease. (hindawi.com)
  • veins
  • Arteries carry blood away from the heart to the lungs or the rest of the body, where the blood passes through capillaries, and veins return the blood to the heart. (wikipedia.org)
  • An AVM interferes with this process by forming a direct connection of the arteries and veins. (wikipedia.org)
  • It can be extremely fragile and prone to bleeding because of the abnormally direct connections between high-pressure arteries and low-pressure veins. (wikipedia.org)
  • The resultant sign, audible via stethoscope, is a rhythmic, whooshing sound caused by excessively rapid blood flow through the arteries and veins. (wikipedia.org)
  • coronary arteries
  • Capsulin transcripts were also found to mark the spiral septum of the heart and progenitor cells that give rise to the pericardium and coronary arteries. (wikipedia.org)
  • Its restricted expression pattern and DNA binding activity identified Capsulin as a regulator of gene expression in specific subtypes of visceral mesodermal cells involved in organogenesis and in precursor cells that contribute to the pericardium, coronary arteries and regions of the heart. (wikipedia.org)
  • renal
  • Although occasional cases of hypertension are a result of identifiable causes, such as renal artery stenosis, pheochromocytoma, excessive adrenal aldosterone production, or monogenetic causes, more than 90% of cases do not have an identifiable etiology and are classified as "essential. (rupress.org)
  • cells
  • Collagen fibrils, elastic fibers, microfibrils, nerve fibers, and smooth muscle cells were observed in the reticular fibers of the splenic cord. (wikipedia.org)
