Perfusion is Not Measurably Decreased in Idiopathic Clubfoot.

08:00 EDT 1st September 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Perfusion is Not Measurably Decreased in Idiopathic Clubfoot."

Vascular aberration has been accepted as a potential etiology of clubfoot, and abnormal vasculature has been observed in as high as 85% of children with severe clubfoot. The perfusion index (PI) corresponds to the ratio of pulsatile to nonpulsatile blood flow at a monitoring site and can be used to quantify perfusion of the extremities. The purpose of this study was to use PI to compare the perfusion of clubfeet to controls in order to further assess the role of abnormal vasculature in clubfoot.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The chilling of a tissue or organ during decreased BLOOD perfusion or in the absence of blood supply. Cold ischemia time during ORGAN TRANSPLANTATION begins when the organ is cooled with a cold perfusion solution after ORGAN PROCUREMENT surgery, and ends after the tissue reaches physiological temperature during implantation procedures. WARM ISCHEMIA TIME starts then and ends with completion of SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS.

A tissue or organ remaining at physiological temperature during decreased BLOOD perfusion or in the absence of blood supply. During ORGAN TRANSPLANTATION it begins when the organ reaches physiological temperature before the completion of SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS and ends with reestablishment of the BLOOD CIRCULATION through the tissue.

Thrombocytopenia occurring in the absence of toxic exposure or a disease associated with decreased platelets. It is mediated by immune mechanisms, in most cases IMMUNOGLOBULIN G autoantibodies which attach to platelets and subsequently undergo destruction by macrophages. The disease is seen in acute (affecting children) and chronic (adult) forms.

Immunoglobulin preparations used in intravenous infusion, containing primarily IMMUNOGLOBULIN G. They are used to treat a variety of diseases associated with decreased or abnormal immunoglobulin levels including pediatric AIDS; primary HYPERGAMMAGLOBULINEMIA; SCID; CYTOMEGALOVIRUS infections in transplant recipients, LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA, CHRONIC; Kawasaki syndrome, infection in neonates, and IDIOPATHIC THROMBOCYTOPENIC PURPURA.

A deformed foot in which the foot is plantarflexed, inverted and adducted.
