  • Early recognition and surgical valve replacement before advanced heart failure is established may improve the clinical outcome. (pubfacts.com)

  • Data regarding carcinoids and other NETs, such as poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas, may be combined in some epidemiologic and clinical studies, rendering separate consideration difficult. (cancer.gov)
  • He was a clinical and research fellow in peripheral vascular disease at the Evans Memorial Foundation for Clinical Research in Boston (1977-1978) and a fellow in cardiology at Boston City Hospital (1978-1980). (wikipedia.org)
  • Clinical investigation topics include congestive heart failure, Raynaud's disease and mitral valve disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • The agonist activity of pergolide at the D1 receptor somewhat alters its clinical and side effect profile in the treatment of Parkinson's disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • To date there have been no clinical trials to determine effective treatment for this disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Poor correlation exists between 5-HIAA level and the clinical severity of the carcinoid syndrome. (wikipedia.org)
  • symptoms
  • 3 ] However, it is possible that the association may be due in part to the serendipitous discovery of slow-growing carcinoid tumors, which are found while staging or investigating symptoms from other tumors. (cancer.gov)
  • This constellation of symptoms is called carcinoid syndrome or (if acute) carcinoid crisis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Play media Signs/symptoms of tricuspid insufficiency are generally those of right-sided heart failure, such as ascites and peripheral edema. (wikipedia.org)
  • Play media Signs and symptoms of mitral stenosis include the following: Heart failure symptoms, such as dyspnea on exertion, orthopnea and paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea (PND) Palpitations Chest pain Hemoptysis Thromboembolism in later stages when the left atrial volume is increased (i.e., dilation). (wikipedia.org)
  • secondary
  • A variety of cancers have been associated with the development of secondary hyperhidrosis including lymphoma, pheochromocytoma, carcinoid tumors (resulting in carcinoid syndrome), and tumors within the thoracic cavity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Certain endocrine conditions are also known to cause secondary hyperhidrosis including diabetes mellitus (especially when blood sugars are low), acromegaly, hyperpituitarism, and various forms of thyroid disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • lesion
  • 18F-FDG PET/CT, which evaluate for increased metabolism of glucose, may also aid in localizing the carcinoid lesion or evaluating for metastases. (wikipedia.org)
  • urinary
  • Quantitation of urinary 5-HIAA is the best test for carcinoid, but scrupulous care must be taken that specimen collection and patient preparation have been correct. (wikipedia.org)
  • congestive heart f
  • The loss of the atrial kick due to atrial fibrillation ( i.e. blood cannot flow into the left ventricle thus accumulating in the left atrium ) can cause a precipitous decrease in cardiac output and sudden congestive heart failure. (wikipedia.org)
  • elsewhere in the body
  • The cause of this was unknown at the time, but eventually it was realised that all the implicated drugs acted as agonists at 5-HT2B receptors in the heart in addition to their intended sites of action elsewhere in the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • Metabolism
  • In a cross-sectional, retrospective analysis, authors compared dopaminergic binding ( 11 C-CFT) and glucose metabolism ( 18 F-FDG) in 103 participants with Parkinson disease. (lww.com)
