Acute limb ischemia caused by ruptured cardiac hydatid cyst - A case report.

Summary of "Acute limb ischemia caused by ruptured cardiac hydatid cyst - A case report."

Acute limb ischemia is a sudden decrease in limb perfusion that threatens the viability of the limb. Complete or even partial occlusion of the arterial supply to a limb can lead to rapid ischemia and poor functional outcomes within hours. In human echinococcosis cardiac involvement is a rare presentation, it may lead to life-threatening complications including cyst rupture; anaphylactic shock; tamponade; pulmonary, cerebral or peripheral arterial embolism. Cardiac hydatid cyst (CHC) may have different presentation include acute lower limb ischemia secondary to embolization from a ruptured cyst.

Cerebral Hydatid Cyst with Intraventricular Extension: A Case Report.

Intracranial hydatid cyst is a rare entity, comprising about 2-3% of all hydatid cysts. Similarly, intracranial hydatid cysts account for 1-2% of all intracranial lesions. Clinical symptoms are genera...

Renal hydatid cyst presenting as an intrarenal-pelvic mass.

Intra-renal-pelvic hydatid cyst is a rare manifestation of renal hydatid disease, as most of the renal hydatid cysts are based in the renal cortex. We present and discuss the clinical and radiological...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Liver disease caused by infections with parasitic tapeworms of the genus ECHINOCOCCUS, such as Echinococcus granulosus or Echinococcus multilocularis. Ingested Echinococcus ova burrow into the intestinal mucosa. The larval migration to the liver via the PORTAL VEIN leads to watery vesicles (HYDATID CYST).

A cyst (CYSTS) near the OVARY, derived from anomalies of the FALLOPIAN TUBES or the BROAD LIGAMENT. The paramesonephric type consists of ciliated cells similar to the oviduct epithelium. The mesonephric type consisted of an epithelium with minimally surface structures. They can be found on the thin oviduct (paratubal cysts) or near its fimbriated end (hydatid of Morgagni).

Cysts formed from epithelial inclusions in the lines of fusion of the embryonic processes which form the jaws. They include nasopalatine or incisive canal cyst, incisive papilla cyst, globulomaxillary cyst, median palatal cyst, median alveolar cyst, median mandibular cyst, and nasoalveolar cyst.

An alternative to amputation in patients with neoplasms, ischemia, fractures, and other limb-threatening conditions. Generally, sophisticated surgical procedures such as vascular surgery and reconstruction are used to salvage diseased limbs.

A cyst in the neck caused by persistence of portions of, or by lack of closure of, the primitive thyroglossal duct. (Dorland, 27th ed)
