Facts About Couple of Diseases
id factid fact description
3074 1 Definition Pulmonary Heart Disease is a disorder that is sometimes called Cor Pulmonale. It is a modification, or an alteration, of the function and the tructure of the right ventricle of the heart. This rare disease is sometimes called Primary Pulmonary Hypertension.
3074 2 Diagnosis Examinations used to check this disorder are chest X-rays, ECG or echocardiography. These tests may be used to check the right ventricular hypertrophy or artial dilation.
3074 3 Treatment Treatment for this disease depends on its underlying cause and supportive measure. Medication can also be used to treat pulmonary heart disease with the use of Diltiazem hydrochloride, Felodipine, Glyceryl trinitrate, Isosorbide mononitrate, Nifedipine, or Amlodipine besylate. Oxyen therapy may also be needed to slow the progression of the disorder. This disease can also be treated like congestive heart failure with the use of calcium channel blockers (vasodilators) to reduce the pressure of the pulmonary circulation.
3074 4 Symptoms and Signs This disorder does not show any symptoms, or is asymptomatic, in its early stages. Symptoms, however, experienced in its later stages.
3074 5 Causes There is no known cause for this disease, however, this disease appears to be secondary to a disorder of the respiratory system or chronic lung disease like acute pulmonary embolism and chronic COPD (such as emphysema and chronic bronchitis).
3075 1 Definition Pulmonary hypertension is the condition where high blood pressure occurs in the arteries in the lungs. The blood vessels that supply lungs with air and blood thicken, preventing the blood to pass through. Pressure begins to develop and the heart starts to pump harder, creating hypertension.
3075 2 Diagnosis Pulmonary hypertension can be diagnosed via the presence of other preexisting heart problems. Thus it is better to treat the preexisting diseases first to prevent the onset of pulmonary hypertension.
3075 3 Treatment Treatment of pulmonary hypertension involves medications and constant therapy. Persons with the disease must also avoid strenuous activities since these can aggravate their heart condition. Females are also advised to avoid pregnancy since it too can cause dangers to their life.
3075 4 Symptoms and Signs Persons with pulmonary hypertension usually become easily tired, dizzy and suffer shortness of breath.
3075 5 Causes The disease can be a result of congenital cardiovascular problems, such as an enlarged heart or heart valve abnormalities.
3076 1 Definition Pulmonary incompetence pertains to a structural defect of a heart valve. This disorder happens when the pulmonary heart valve is closes poorly and causes blood from the pulmonary artery to backflow into the right ventricle. It is more commonly known as pulmonary valve insufficiency.
3076 2 Diagnosis Doctors determine the pitch and location of the murmur to know if the the patient has pulmonary valve insufficiency. An EKG and an echocardiography, ultrasound imaging, chest x-ray and/or an angiocardiography may be used to confirm the diagnosis.
3076 3 Treatment This disorder is usually not serious enough to need any treatment However, its symptoms can be managed using some medications like antibiotics. Because this is a structural defect, alternative medicines may be limited. Physicians may require patients to avoid activities that will aggravate this disorder’s symptoms.
3076 4 Symptoms and Signs Few or no symptoms are generally found with pulmonary valve insufficiency. A murmur may be initially noticed (using a stethoscope) in a medical exam of the heart and chest.
3076 5 Causes There are several causes to this condition particularly severe pulmonary hypertension (high pressure in the arteries and veins of the lungs). Chronic lung disease, lung blood clots, and sometimes endocarditis (an inflammation of the lining of the heart and valves) cause pulmonary hypertension. Pulmonary incompetence may also be caused by surgery for congenital heart disease.
3077 1 Definition Pulmonary sequestration is an abnormal growth within the tracheobronchial tree. This cystic growth may become a lung infection and can cause problems in the cardiopulmonary circulation.
3077 2 Diagnosis Pulmonary sequestration can be diagnosed via imaging studies such as radiograph tests and MRI. Bronchography and arteriography can also be done to detect malicious behaviors in the lungs and blood vessels.
3077 3 Treatment Treatment of the disease may be in the form of medications to remove the cystic growth. Surgical resection procedures may also required when the growth is already fully developed. Continuous exercise and therapy is also recommended to strengthen the heart and lungs.
3077 4 Symptoms and Signs Persons with this condition experience frequent chest pains and shortness of breath. They also easily get tired.
3077 5 Causes Pulmonary sequestration may be due to a congenital malformation in the thoracic cavity. Other congenital heart and lung problems may also contribute to the onset of the disease.
3078 1 Definition Pulmonary valve stenosis is the malformation of the either of the three leaflets of the pulmonary valve. When the valves become narrowed or leaky, and because of this they won’t be able to pick up oxygen to deliver to the lungs.
3078 2 Diagnosis Pulmonary valve stenosis can be diagnosed via radiographic examination and MRI.
3078 3 Treatment Treatment for the disease involves surgery, because the pulmonary valve has to be opened to generate blood flow to the pulmonary area. It can also be done during an open heart surgery. In severe cases, the pulmonary valve must be replaced.
3078 4 Symptoms and Signs In most cases pulmonary valve stenosis is asymptomatic, but some patients experience shortness of breath and frequent palpitations during severe stages.
3079 1 Definition Pulmonic stenosis, cafe-au-lait spots is a rare disease also known as the Watson syndrome. It is characterized by reduced intelligence, short stature, and cafe-au-lait spots in the skin. Pulmonary valves also become narrowed. The disease is caused by problematic mutations in the NF1 gene.
3080 1 Definition Pulseless disease, also known as Takayasu disease, is an abnormal inflammation of the aorta. The disease is common in women, especially those from Asian countries.
3080 2 Diagnosis Pulseless disease diagnosed by chest X-rays and blood serum tests that measure the blood’s sedimentation rate. In severe cases, MRI is used to produce images of the damages brought about by the disease.
3080 3 Treatment Treatment for the disease is usually done by gradually reducing the swelling by the use of cortisone injection. Stronger immunosuppressive drugs meanwhile are given to patients who are cortisone-resistant.
3080 4 Symptoms and Signs Persons with pulseless disease usually experience headaches, dizziness, chest and abdominal pain. They also experience fatigue, low-grade fever and weight loss.
3080 5 Causes The exact causes of the inflammation are unknown.
