  • Macular Edema
  • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a type of high-resolution ultrasound used to evaluate the macular anatomy and to rule out cystoid macular edema (DME) or macular atrophy (Macular Ischemia) in PDR patients (rpa--ip-OCT). (retinacenternj.com)
  • A patient with macular edema secondary to a branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) was treated with intravenous injections of infliximab, an antitumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α antibody, for her rheumatoid arthritis (RA). (dovepress.com)
  • There was no recurrence of macular edema during the infliximab injections. (dovepress.com)
  • Because TNF-α is known to break down the blood-retinal barrier, the improvements in our case suggest that TNF-α plays a role in the pathogenesis of macular edema in some patients with BRVO. (dovepress.com)
  • hours
  • On post operative day 1 (24 hours following lung transplant), the investigators will evaluate whether extravascular lung water measured at 24 hours correlates with pulmonary edema determined by reviewers of the CXR blinded to the extravascular lung water measurement. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • acute
  • Edema caused by malnutrition defines kwashiorkor , an acute form of childhood protein-energy malnutrition characterized by edema, irritability, anorexia, ulcerating dermatoses, and an enlarged liver with fatty infiltrates. (wikipedia.org)
  • This form of cerebral edema is seen in acute malignant hypertension. (wikipedia.org)
  • Early symptoms of high-altitude cerebral edema (HACE) generally correspond with those of moderate to severe acute mountain sickness (AMS). (wikipedia.org)
  • Malignant edema (or malignant oedema) is an acute, generally rapidly fatal wound infection (toxemia) most common in grazing animals. (wikipedia.org)
  • Edema blisters (also known as "Edema bulla", "Hydrostatic bulla," and "Stasis blister") are a cutaneous condition that develop in patients with an acute exacerbation of chronic edema, particularly of the lower extremities, and in the setting of anasarca. (wikipedia.org)
  • Acute hemorrhagic edema of infancy (also known as "Acute hemorrhagic edema of childhood", "Finkelstein's disease", "Infantile postinfectious iris-like purpura and edema", "Medallion-like purpura", "Purpura en cocarde avec oedema" and "Seidlmayer syndrome") is a skin condition that affects children under the age of two with a recent history of upper respiratory illness, a course of antibiotics, or both. (wikipedia.org)
  • Remitting seronegative symmetrical synovitis with pitting edema (abbreviated RS3PE or sometimes RS3PE) is a rare syndrome identified by symmetric polyarthritis, synovitis, acute pitting edema (swelling) of the back of the hands and/or feet, and a negative serum rheumatoid factor. (wikipedia.org)
  • cytotoxic edema
  • In cytotoxic edema, the blood-brain barrier remains intact but a disruption in cellular metabolism impairs functioning of the sodium and potassium pump in the glial cell membrane, leading to cellular retention of sodium and water. (wikipedia.org)
  • It appears to be a vasogenic edema (fluid penetration of the blood-brain barrier ), although cytotoxic edema (cellular retention of fluids) may play a role as well. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is this swelling of the individual cells of the brain that is seen as the main distinguishing characteristic of cytotoxic edema, as opposed to vasogenic edema, wherein the influx of fluid is typically seen in the interstitial space rather than within the cells themselves. (wikipedia.org)
  • lymphedema
  • Persistent edema of rosacea (also known as "Chronic upper facial erythematous edema," "Morbihan's disease," or "Rosaceous lymphedema") is a hard, nonpitting edema found on the areas involved, those mainly being the forehead, glabella, upper eyelids, nose, and/or cheeks. (wikipedia.org)
  • This condition is also known as chronic upper facial erythematous edema, Morbihan's disease, morbus Morbihan, and rosaceous lymphedema. (wikipedia.org)
  • symptoms
  • Symptoms vary depending on the cause of edema. (encyclopedia.com)
  • Patient history and presenting symptoms, along with laboratory blood studies, if indicated, assist the health professional in determining the cause of the edema. (encyclopedia.com)
  • It's common to experience some swelling of your hands, feet and lower legs, symptoms known as edema, during and immediately after exercise. (livestrong.com)
  • Some medications, including calcium channel blockers for high blood pressure, can cause edema, so let your doctor know whether symptoms seem related to a medication change. (livestrong.com)
  • List of common symptoms: "sac-like" appearance of the vocal folds Hoarseness and deepening of the voice Trouble speaking (Dysphonia) Reduced vocal range with diminished upper limits Stretching of the mucosa (Distension) Shortness of breath Reinke's edema is characterized by a "sac-like" appearance of the vocal folds.

  • oedema
  • The Merck Veterinary Manual, "Malignant Edema" A World of Petcare, "Malignant Oedema" Archived 2011-07-06 at the Wayback Machine. (wikipedia.org)
  • chronic
  • The edema typically worsens slowly over months to years and is often on a background of chronic inflammation. (wikipedia.org)
  • severe
  • Such severe systemic edema is called anasarca . (wikipedia.org)
  • Edema may also be found in the cornea of the eye with glaucoma, severe conjunctivitis or keratitis or after surgery. (wikipedia.org)
  • While not all patients who have experienced a stroke will develop a severe edema, those who do have a very poor prognosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although higher pulmonary arterial pressures are associated with the development of HAPE, the presence of pulmonary hypertension may not in itself be sufficient to explain the development of edema: severe pulmonary hypertension can exist in the absence of clinical HAPE in subjects at high altitude. (wikipedia.org)
  • Swollen
  • The explanation of edema of the legs and feet is the same as for swollen hands when exercise is the likely cause. (livestrong.com)
  • occur
  • An edema will occur in specific organs as part of inflammations, tendonitis or pancreatitis, for instance. (wikipedia.org)
  • manifest
  • The differential diagnosis includes acne vulgaris, streptococcal cellulitis, and Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome, as these conditions can also rarely manifest with a similar edema, as well as other forms of rosacea, lupus erythematosus, and sarcoidosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • The key distinguishing feature is that these conditions don't tend to manifest with pitting edema at the back of the hands. (wikipedia.org)
  • distinguish
  • Some authorities distinguish him from a Nicholas Edema, living at the same time, who visited Surinam for the purpose of painting insects and plants, a line of art which he abandoned for landscape-painting. (wikipedia.org)
