Why does liver failure sometimes cause kidney failure?

Liver and Kidney: Its a great question and complicated. The syndrome is called hepatorenal syndrome which is often because the amount of blood flow to the kidney is lessened which causes kidney injury- is a simple explanation. It also may be related to the reasons that liver failure ensued: for example hepatitis, drug overdose, toxins etc. Great question! ...Read more

How does preeclampsia causes oligohydramnios?

How does preeclampsia causes oligohydramnios?

Decreased fetal GFR.: Oligohydramnios is a sign of decreased fetal glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in the absence of rupture of amniotic membranes. Preeclampsia can cause placental failure and thus poor perfusion of the fetoplacental unit leading to oligohydramnios. ...Read more

Does gonorrhea cause kidney failure?

Does gonorrhea cause kidney failure?

No: Gonorrhea does not directly affect the kidneys. However, repeated infections can impair urine outflow from the bladder by causing a urethral stricture. Failure for urine to leave the body (bladder) means the kidneys cannot work. This is called urinary obstruction. Relief of the obstruction restores kidney function. ...Read more

Can progesterone defiency cause placental abruption ?

Can progesterone defiency cause placental abruption ?

Great question!: Not known. Placenta is the major producer of Progesterone in pregnancy, and Progesterone serves to keep the uterus quiet as the fetus grows. It is possible that perturbations in the uteroplacental interface (eg placental infarction) could lead to both Progesterone decline and increased risk for abruption. No study has addressed this to date; abruption remains an impossible complication to predict. ...Read more

Acute renal failure after hysterectomy becuase of uterine cancer. Is this normal after a hysterectomy? Problems after surgery, dec 2011, mother 62, now renal failure. Kidney doctor found blockage causing the kidneys to fail.

Acute renal failure after hysterectomy becuase of uterine cancer. Is this normal after a hysterectomy? Problems after surgery, dec 2011, mother 62, now renal failure. Kidney doctor found blockage causing the kidneys to fail.

Assuming : Assuming that your mother did not have chronic renal disease going into surgery, then the prognosis for recovery of kidney function will depend on the reason for the acute injury. Most often acute renal failure is due to a period of low blood pressure, where there is not enough blood pressure to perfuse the kidney which results in something called acute tubular necrosis. There are varying degrees of this, which should improve once the blood pressure stabilizes, in some cases, hemodialysis may be necessary to support the kidney until this recovers. Another potential cause though, particularly in uterine surgery, is injury to the ureters, sometimes due to the extent of the tumor or difficulty in removing the uterus. As you mention that the kidney doctor said a blockage was found, this may be a contributing factor, but usually is known prior to surgery. Other causes (unlikely here) may relate to drug toxicities, for example antibiotics or chemotherapy related. In general, if the patient goes into surgery with good kidney function, the prognosis for recovery is good once all the inciting factors are removed. ...Read more

How does preeclampsia cause a pulmonary edema?

How does preeclampsia cause a pulmonary edema?

Several mechanisms: Severe high blood pressure can cause the heart to perform less efficiently causing "cardiogenic pulmonary edema" and the release of chemicals which promote inflammation ( cytokines) cause the capillaries ( tiny blood vessels) in the lungs to become leaky causing "non cardiogenic pulmonary edema) both mechanisms can be at work. ...Read more

Why does renal or aortic stenosis usually cause hypotension?

Why does renal or aortic stenosis usually cause hypotension?

They don't: Renal artery stenosis usually causes hypertension. In fact it can be difficult to control. Aortic stenosis doesn't cause hypotension until very late which can be dangerous if the heart has thickened. In my experience most of my patients with aortic stenosis have either normal or high blood pressure. ...Read more
