Acute chest syndrome is a severe sickle cell disease complication in children requiring blood transfusion therapy to prevent acute respiratory failure and death. Nitric oxide is a potent ...
Acute chest syndrome (ACS) is a frequent and potentially life-threatening pulmonary illness. It is a complication of sickle cell disease and is the leading cause of death from this disease...
The main aim of the WESTCOR study is to - investigate the ability of two hs-cTn assays to diagnose acute coronary syndrome and predict prognosis in different patient populations (...
The overall aim of the project is to evaluate diagnosis and treatment of chest pain originating from the musculoskeletal system. Specifically, we wish to investigate prevalence and charact...
Secretory phosholipases A2 (sPLA2) are significantly elevated in the plasma of sickle cell disease patients with acute chest syndrome, and similar enzymes have been measured in exhaled bre...
The acute chest syndrome is a frequent complication in patients with sickle cell disease. It results from the occlusion of pulmonary capillaries and complex pathophysiological mechanisms. The diagnosi...
Chest pain is a common presentation and diagnosis can be challenging. There are many causes for chest pain, including life-threatening conditions such as acute coronary syndrome (ACS), which can prove...
The acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is subdivided into ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), non-ST segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) and unstable angina pectoris. It po...
Several successful uses of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) for acute respiratory distress syndrome in patients with novel HIV/AIDS infection have been reported; however, the therapeutic key...
Respiratory syndrome characterized by the appearance of a new pulmonary infiltrate on chest x-ray, accompanied by symptoms of fever, cough, chest pain, tachypnea, or DYSPNEA, often seen in patients with SICKLE CELL ANEMIA. Multiple factors (e.g., infection, and pulmonary FAT EMBOLISM) may contribute to the development of the syndrome.
A clinical syndrome with acute abdominal pain that is severe, localized, and rapid onset. Acute abdomen may be caused by a variety of disorders, injuries, or diseases.
A condition caused by a brief whole body exposure to more than one sievert dose equivalent of radiation. Acute radiation syndrome is initially characterized by ANOREXIA; NAUSEA; VOMITING; but can progress to hematological, gastrointestinal, neurological, pulmonary, and other major organ dysfunction.
Syndrome consisting of synovitis, acne, palmoplantar pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis (SAPHO). The most common site of the disease is the upper anterior chest wall, characterized by predominantly osteosclerotic lesions, hyperostosis, and arthritis of the adjacent joints. The association of sterile inflammatory bone lesions and neutrophilic skin eruptions is indicative of this syndrome.
ANGINA PECTORIS or angina-like chest pain with a normal coronary arteriogram and positive EXERCISE TEST. The cause of the syndrome is unknown. While its recognition is of clinical importance, its prognosis is excellent. (Braunwald, Heart Disease, 4th ed, p1346; Jablonski Dictionary of Syndromes & Eponymic Diseases, 2d ed). It is different from METABOLIC SYNDROME X, a syndrome characterized by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA, that has increased risk for cardiovascular disease.
