What is endolymphatic hydrops?

Inner ear disorder: Endolymphatic hydrops is a disorder of the vestibular system (your inner ear 'balance center). It includes conditions such as meniere's disease, which is characterized by dizziness, hearing loss and ear pain. Here's a helpful link: http://www. Californiaearinstitute.

Diet (Definition)

Refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy. Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure. Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more

What's the difference between primary endolymphatic hydrops and secondary endolymphatic hydrops?

What's the difference between primary endolymphatic hydrops and secondary endolymphatic hydrops?

Primary vs Secondary: Primary endolymphatic hydrops would be a problem intrinsic to the inner ear itself. While secondary would be caused by something outside of (affecting) the inner ear. The symptoms maybe the same. An example of secondary would be if medications were causing the symptoms.

Secondary endolymphatic hydrops, does Claritin (loratadine) help?

Secondary endolymphatic hydrops, does Claritin (loratadine) help?

Secondary Endolympha: Underlying cause and natural history is unknown. Claritin (loratadine) is not going to help.

Could T2 hyperintensity in the superior Semicircular Canal indicate Endolymphatic Hydrops or Menieres?

Need to see pictures: T2 hyperintensity means fluid. But the semicircular canals have Endolymph fluid normally. Whether there is excess fluid (hydrops) that is causing symptoms (Meniere's) cannot be established with certainty by MRI. A dilated canal could indicate hydrops but that would depend on how the pictures look. Obtain a copy of MRI pictures & report to upload on HealthTap Prime; you'll get better answers there.

Can Endolymphatic Hydrops cause 24/7 rocking/jerking dizziness instead of episodic spinning? Bilat Conductive hearing loss ECOG Left. 36 Right. 39

Can Endolymphatic Hydrops cause 24/7 rocking/jerking dizziness instead of episodic spinning? Bilat Conductive hearing loss ECOG Left. 36 Right. 39

Sounds Good to me: I would guess that though you have 24/7 rocking/jerking dizziness that there are SPIKES of significant worsening of those symptoms....and that's where I would place your ACUTE EPISODES of Meniere's or whatever you'd like to call it. That's almost like my headache patients who have CONSTANT HEADACHES but there are episodes where it gets HORRIBLE....those can definitely be migraines! Make sense?

I have endolymphatic hydrops in one ear. The meniett releaves the pressure but makes me very dizzy for 48 hours. My symptoms started with using new in-ear headphones. Could it be a plf?

I have endolymphatic hydrops in one ear. The meniett releaves the pressure but makes me very dizzy for 48 hours. My symptoms started with using new in-ear headphones. Could it be a plf?

Possible: Hydrops and plf both can cause fluctuating ear pressure, and hearing loss so may be hard to distinguish. Another cause could be superior canal dehiscence but the hearing loss in this condition is usually conductive. Consider getting fistula test from audiologist. In plf condition usually begins with blow to ear, major baropressure event, heavy straining such as hard cough or lifting heavy objec.

Does anyone know of information on non-immune hydrops?

Does anyone know of information on non-immune hydrops?

Bad diagnosis.: Nifh (non-immune fetal hydrops) is a rare but serious diagnosis that can prove lethal for the fetus and dangerous for the mother. Its causes are multiple (structural cardiac defects being one of the most common with or without arrhythmia) and its outcome depends on the gestational age at diagnosis (earlier is worse) and availability of expert perinatal care at a tertiary hospital. Good luck!

Can you tell me about hydrops gallbladder with litiasis?

Can you tell me about hydrops gallbladder with litiasis?

Mucus filled/swollen: A gallbladder in which a gallstone has blocked its duct will sometimes absorb the accumulated bile and leave behind a white mucoid substance in the gallbladder. A mucus filled gallbladder from a blocked stone is called hydrops. Hydrops is a word used in other conditions as well where there is excessive swelling. Lithiasis refers to the stone which is usually a cholesterol stone.

What is the prognosis for hydrops fetalis?

High, depends: The overall prognosis for hydrops fetalis is quite high. Prognosis depends on the cause and severity of the condition, as there may be more milder forms.

Hydrops foetalis why specialy happening with my male babies in 26 or 27 weeks?

Hydrops foetalis why specialy happening with my male babies in 26 or 27 weeks?

Fluid accumulation: When fluid (massive) accumulates in the fetus, due to rh blood incompatibility or more frequent acquired problems like infections genetic defects, diabetes etc will have fetal fluid accumulation in all tissues cavities, mother will have increased amniotic fluid, called hydrops fetalis. Fetal mortality will be high.

2 kids with nonimmune hydrops, 1 f 2 1/2 yrs, 1 m 3 months?

2 kids with nonimmune hydrops, 1 f 2 1/2 yrs, 1 m 3 months?

Hydrops fetalis,: Excessive fluid build-up in 2 or more body parts in a fetus, can be pretty severe, as you describe. Non-immune hydrops can be from heart or lung problems, severe anemia (alpha-thalassemia or infections), genetic syndromes or problems in fetal development. I'd seek evaluations of both kids by a geneticist to look for a cause ; by your state's early intervention program to assess their development.

I have labrynthine hydrops and haven't gone back to work in 6months. What can I do to get better?

See a specialist: You need to see an ENT doctor who specializes in neuro-otology. These doctors have special training in ear disease and can diagnose and treat complicated ear disease (which is what it sounds like you have). You should not be out of work for 6 months if properly treated.

Differential diagnosis for fetus with hydrops?

Differential diagnosis for fetus with hydrops?

Hydrops fetalis (HF): Hf is divided into two major categories: immune hf and nonimmune hf. Immune hydrops fetalis is caused by rh incompatibility, and used to be the most common cause. All other causes of hf are termed non-immune and may be caused by chromosomal aberrations, other genetic disorders, infections, anemias, structural birth defects such as congenital heart disease, and many other causes.

Fetal hydrops: Hydrops fetalis (fetal hydrops) is a serious fetal condition defined as abnormal accumulation of fluid in 2 or more fetal compartments, including ascites, pleural effusion, pericardial effusion, and skin edema.

What are the tests for fetal hydrops?

Ultrasound mostly.: Fetal hydrops can only be diagnosed with prenatal ultrasonography and certain blood tests can help with its etiology (e.g. Torch titers). Prenatal genetic diagnosis is also warranted in such cases to assess for down syndrome or other severe anomalies. This can be achieved with cordocentesis, amniocentesis, placental biopsy or cell-free fetal dna isolation from the maternal blood.

What is fetal hydrops? Can it be treated?

Immune and cardiac: Fetal hydops is a state of severe generalized edema in the fetus. There are two broad categories of disorders that cause fetal hyrops, namely immune, as in hemolytic disease of the fetus and cardiac. Treatment depends on the cause. Some disorders are treatable.

Describe the disorder called fetal hydrops.?

Describe the disorder called fetal hydrops.?

Complicated: The abnormal collection of fluid in more than one area of the fetal body, ascites or effusions, is termed hydrops fetalis. It could be immune or non-immune. It has to be managed by a high risk specialist who can explain this complicated and deadly condition to you in detail. It's one reason early prenatal care can help identify any abnormal antibodies or infections that can cause it.

Any docs familiar w/fetal hydrops please tell me the risks?

Fluid accumulation: Fetal hydrops is a condition in which the fetus as an accumulation of fluid in at least 2 or more fetal compartments such as ascites, pleural effusion, or pericardial effusion. A fetus can have immune hydrops (related to red cell blood markers) or non-immune hydrous (related to fetal defects, maternal genetic or metabolic disorders. Fetal hydrous may carry a poor prognosis.

Edema (Definition)

Fluid in the tissues, either caused by something local to the swollen area like an injury or inflammation, or from the body's retention of water. Gravity brings the fluid to the feet & legs in that case. As a general rule, if one foot is swollen, something is wrong with the foot. If both feet are swollen, it's not the feet, but water ...Read more
