  • systemic
  • Obstruction to venous flow, stagnation , slow flow state, inactivity will cause DVT ( deep vein thrombosis ) besides other systemic diseases that is the reason have to walk in long flights, and drives to prevent DVT and not to stay on the seat for hrs with out moving. (healthtap.com)
  • The treatment of portal hypertension is divided into: Selective shunts select non-intestinal flow to be shunted to the systemic venous drainage while leaving the intestinal venous drainage to continue to pass through the liver. (wikipedia.org)
  • Signs of established sepsis include confusion, metabolic acidosis (which may be accompanied by faster breathing and lead to a respiratory alkalosis), low blood pressure due to decreased systemic vascular resistance, higher cardiac output, and dysfunctions of blood coagulation (where clotting may lead to organ failure). (wikipedia.org)
  • outflow
  • Flow through the uveoscleral route is thought to be insensitive to pressure, while aqueous humor flow rate through the trabecular route depends on a hydrostatic pressure difference (IOP − EVP) and the resistance to aqueous outflow (1/ c ). (arvojournals.org)
  • occlusion
  • There was no statistically significant difference in CRVP (P=0.466), IOP (P=0.229) and MOPP (mean ocular perfusion pressure, P=0.378) between the occlusion and the healthy fellow eye. (arvojournals.org)
  • sinus
  • The sinus venarum is the adult remnant of the sinus venous and it surrounds the openings of the venae cavae and the coronary sinus. (wikipedia.org)
  • underestimates
  • WHVP in fact slightly underestimates portal pressure due to sinusoidal equilibration in patients without cirrhosis, but the difference between the two is clinically insignificant. (wikipedia.org)
  • portal hypertension
  • In portal hypertension, the vessels surrounding the liver are subjected to abnormally high blood pressure-so high, in fact, that the force of the blood pressing against the round ligament is sufficient to recanalize the structure. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • In patients with cirrhotic livers intersinusoidal communication is disrupted such that sinusoidal pressure equilibrium cannot be maintained, and so WHVP becomes a far more accurate measure of portal venous pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • cardiovascular
  • It is actually a part of a vicious cycle that further elevates blood pressure, aggravates atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), and leads to increased cardiovascular risk. (wikipedia.org)
  • For example, his invention of the phlebomanometer provided a tool to measure blood flow in the venous portion of the cardiovascular system for normal persons and for persons with certain cardiovascular diseases such as congestive heart failure. (wikipedia.org)
  • thus
  • Pressure stockings are sometimes used to externally reduce compliance, and thus keep blood from pooling in the legs. (wikipedia.org)
  • This connects the splenic vein to the left renal vein thus reducing portal system pressure while minimizing any encephalopathy. (wikipedia.org)
  • increases
  • Physiologically, this is a consequence of the Frank-Starling mechanism as inspiration decreases the thoracic pressure and increases blood movement into the heart (venous return), which a healthy heart moves into the pulmonary circulation. (wikipedia.org)
  • continuous
  • In normal physiologic states, the output of the heart is pulsatile, and the venous inflow to the heart is continuous and non-pulsatile. (wikipedia.org)
  • Edema

  • Listed below are some combinations of symptoms associated with Edema due to increased venous pressure in children, as listed in our database. (rightdiagnosis.com)
  • This information refers to the general prevalence and incidence of these diseases, not to how likely they are to be the actual cause of Edema due to increased venous pressure in children. (rightdiagnosis.com)
  • The following list of conditions have ' Edema due to increased venous pressure in children ' or similar listed as a symptom in our database. (rightdiagnosis.com)
  • blood pressure
  • How to know if blood clots in the leg are connected to blood pressure at all? (healthtap.com)
  • I have cramps in the calf of my right leg, should I be worried about blood clots though I'm on 81 mg's of baby asprin and also blood pressure meds? (healthtap.com)
  • I've just been to doctor who said my blood pressure is fine. (healthtap.com)
  • An increase in the age and also in the systolic blood pressure (SBP) is accompanied with decrease on arterial compliance. (wikipedia.org)
  • It can manifest itself in many symptoms such as cold hands and feet and is often associated with low blood pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • The disease is more prevalent in the following groups of people: in women compared to men, in people with lower blood pressure, in Asians compared with Caucasians, it is more frequent among academics than among blue collar-workers. (wikipedia.org)
  • To complete the exam blood pressure should be checked, an ECG recorded, funduscopy performed to assess for Roth spots or papilledema. (wikipedia.org)
  • Insufficient blood flow may be evident by low blood pressure, high blood lactate, or low urine output. (wikipedia.org)
  • Septic shock is low blood pressure due to sepsis that does not improve after reasonable amounts of intravenous fluids are given. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 2016, SIRS was replaced with qSOFA which is two of the following three: increased breathing rate, change in level of consciousness, and low blood pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • If fluid replacement is not enough to maintain blood pressure, medications that raise blood pressure may be used. (wikipedia.org)
  • The drop in blood pressure seen in sepsis may lead to shock. (wikipedia.org)
  • vein
  • So if the vein gets cut, it cannot close and air is sucked in due to negative intrathoracic pressure causes air embolism. (wikipedia.org)
  • People with sepsis need preventive measures for deep vein thrombosis, stress ulcers and pressure ulcers, unless other conditions prevent such interventions. (wikipedia.org)
  • vascular
  • Linear skull fractures are usually of little clinical significance unless they parallel in close proximity or transverse a suture, or they involve a venous sinus groove or vascular channel. (wikipedia.org)
  • circulation
  • The fats contained in the adipocytes can be put back into circulation, via the venous route, during intense effort or when there is a lack of energy providing substances, and are then transformed into energy. (wikipedia.org)
  • mmHg
  • For eye pressures a value of greater than 21 mmHg or 2.8 kPa is often used with higher pressures leading to a greater risk. (wikipedia.org)
  • About 10% of people with closed angles present with acute angle closure characterized by sudden ocular pain, seeing halos around lights, red eye, very high intraocular pressure (>30 mmHg), nausea and vomiting, suddenly decreased vision, and a fixed, mid-dilated pupil. (wikipedia.org)
  • cause
  • They may cause pressure on the spinal cord or cauda equina, which may present as pain, muscle weakness, or dysfunction of the bladder and bowel. (wikipedia.org)
  • Those abruptions caused by venous bleeding at the periphery of the placenta develop more slowly and cause small amounts of bleeding, intrauterine growth restriction, and oligohydramnios (low levels of amniotic fluid). (wikipedia.org)
  • The most common cause of CVI is superficial venous reflux which is a treatable condition. (wikipedia.org)
  • develop
  • Malignant degeneration is a rare but important complication of venous disease since tumors which develop in the setting of an ulcer tend to be more aggressive. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, some may have high eye pressure for years and never develop damage. (wikipedia.org)
  • occur
  • These adaptations to rapid changes in blood pressure (in contrast with changes that occur over periods of hours or days) are known as dynamic cerebral autoregulation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Conversely, optic nerve damage may occur with normal pressure, known as normal-tension glaucoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • blood pressure
  • Filtration occurs in the glomerulus and is largely passive: it is dependent on the intracapillary blood pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although the classic 'autoregulation curve' suggests that CBF is fully stable between these blood pressure values (known also as the limits of autoregulation), CBF may vary as much as 10% below and above its average within this range. (wikipedia.org)
  • high
  • Depressed skull fractures present a high risk of increased pressure on the brain, or a hemorrhage to the brain that crushes the delicate tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • appear
  • Caffeine increases intraocular pressure in those with glaucoma, but does not appear to affect normal individuals. (wikipedia.org)
