Renal Failure Normal Anatomy And Physiology
A condition in which your kidneys suddenly stop working normally. Since your kidneys remove waste products and help balance water and salt and other minerals (electrolytes) in your blood, when your kidneys stop working, waste products, fluids, and electrolytes build up in your body. This can cause problems ...Read more
--: Anemia means low oxygen carrying agents in the blood and this is then compounded with the heart effort to maintain the oxygen delivery to other organs especially the brain by increasing its cardiac output -- and in the presence of a weak heart or other stress factor such as trauma or infection, the heart is overwhelmed and congestive heart failure ensues. ...Read more
Non sustained VT<30sec more concern in patients with Left Ventricular Impaired function compared to Normal LV function normal heart ejection fraction?
Yes, but concern: NS Ventricular tachycardia has a higher degree of concern in patients with impaired ejection fraction. However, the larger concern is that having runs of nonsustained VT are not particularly common in the normal population, so even in patients with normal EF, would still be concerned about ischemic heart disease in patients who are having runs of NS VT. ...Read more
Normal left ventricular dimension with segmental wall motion abnormality suggestive of CAD with adequate systolic function. What's the meaning?
Would one papvr with no other abnormalities in the heart lead to right heart failure? My rv enlarged but normal function and, pressure. Lv normal too.
It is possible: You have elevated pulmonary vascular resistance. Though your RV function is normal it is enlarged. You may want to find out why you pulmonary vascular resistance is elevated. Do you have have a condition that is increasing your pulmonary blood flow? Are you having silent pulmonary embolism that is decreasing the size of your pulmonary vascular bed? Both conditions can raise your pulmonary vascular ...Read more
Not always related: Renal failure in and of itself is not realted to cardiac output, there are many things that can cause both renal failure and decreased cardiac output, but they are not always related. However if someone has really low cardiac output, one could develop renal failure b/c not enough blood is getting to the kidneys. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

18 years old having pre hypertension normal renal Doppler no kidney disease possible causes ? Normal heart echo
Wt/diet/predisposed: In adults, once the specter of kidney damage is removed we find most patients have a limited set of problems.Either they are carrying excessive weight, have a diet that aggravates the issue, or they are destined to have HBP based on unknown factors. (essential hypertension) ...Read more
Not much, but: Need a follow up ultrasound in a few years to see if increasing suggestive of polycystic kidney disease (pkd). If this is the case there is a chance to lose kidney function over long years. It is not a cancer. But increasing cysts number and size can overtake kidneys. Chances are, none of that will happen to you. But, better safe than sorry. Pkd is a benign and slow condition but may cause failure. ...Read more

If. Some body have osephgeal varices and. Normal liver function normal alpha protien is normal. And CT scan show mass in liver. Ap and portal or 12m?
Renal anatomy: The solid tissue of the kidney is divided into an outer cortex and inner medulla. The blood is filtered and urine and is produced here. Urine is emptied into the collecting system of the renal pelvis. The ureters then transport urine to the bladder. Prominence or enlargement of the collecting system can sometimes indicate obstruction to this outflow. Bilateral means it is seen on both sides. ...Read more
Whether end systolic with dimension 3.2 CM and end diastolic with dimension 4.9 CM are normal heart condition (mitral valve)?
Dimensions: Those are normal left ventricular dimension measurements. ...Read more
What is the probability of sca with a normal ekg(normal heartbeat, just fast), normal echo shows normal function, normal stress test/normal blood work?
Low: The probability of sca is low in the young, healthy population. Unless you have a family history of sca or a genetic predisposition to sudden death, your risk should also be low. There is a risk calculator that can be applied to assess sca risk in patients undergoing surgery. It was developed by dr. Gupta and can be accessed at www.Qxmd.Com. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
