Liver ischemia: There are 2 blood supplies to the liver. The portal vein which supplies about 80% and the hepatic artery which supplies about 20%. If both are occluded the liver can become ischemic and die. This can happen right away. If one is occluded in one of the larger branches though blood can find other routs to get to the liver tissue. Also, the thrombus may recannalize and some blood may get through. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ischemia, drugs: Acute tubular necrosis (atn) can happen if the kidney has severely reduced blood supply (ischemia). This could be caused by hypotension (very low blood pressure), volume depletion (as a result of illness or trauma), problems with the blood vessels supplying the kidneys (renal artery blockage), and drugs that affect the flow of blood to the kidneys. Drugs and toxins can also directly cause atn. ...Read more
What is necrosis? Just irrevesible cell then dead off and cause inflammation?Does it mean whenever there is a mild injury, our cell die and necrosis?
Many concerns: Necrosis is "death" or destruction of a nerve, and this sometimes is necessitated to alleviate pain, by an alcohol injection. If a nerve is cut or transected, or if a nerve cell body dies (apoptosis), from a variety of inflammatory or degenerative causes, recovery is not possible. So, nerve death can occur both in central and peripheral nervous systems. Timely treatment is always best. ...Read more
What is it about cold injury that kills the organs? Could I ng term exposure cause organ necrosis and kill the victim?
GivinTheColdShoulder: Your question is a bit vague. But generally, if tissue is actually frozen (frostbite), water crystals form inside the cells and that messes-up the works. When thawed, the tissue is mush. If you are talking about hypothermia, the colder you get the slower your metabolism to the point that the lack of energy formation overcomes the overall slowness of the metabolic processes and then the cells die. ...Read more
Yes: This is a known complication of taking steroids, especially if you had to take prolonged courses during your chemo regimen (for acute lymphoblastic leukemia, for example). Depending on the location and extent, treatment ranges from physical therapy and waiting, to some orthopedic surgery procedures.
