Lower Limb Swilling :

Lower Limb Swilling Done by :  Mohammed A Qazzaz .

PowerPoint Presentation:

The primary function of the lower limbs is to support the weight of the body and to provide a stable foundation in standing, walking, and running; they have become specialized for locomotion . The lower limbs are divided into the gluteal region, the thigh, the knee, the leg, the ankle, and the foot. Basic anatomy

PowerPoint Presentation:

Swelling is the enlargement of a body part or organ beyond it normal size and usually causing a distortion of the shape and structure of the affected area . Fluid Gas Mass Swelling

PowerPoint Presentation:

The swollen leg Swelling is a sign for many conditions affect the human body . These conditions could be vascular or non vascular . It could be unilateral or bilateral .

PowerPoint Presentation:

Non vascular or lymphatic General disease states : Cardiac failure from any cause . Liver failure . Hypoproteinaemia due to nephrotic syndrome, malabsorption , protein-losing enteropathy Hypothyroidism ( myxoedema ) Allergic disorders, including angioedema and idiopathic cyclic oedema Prolonged immobility and lower limb dependency

PowerPoint Presentation:

Non vascular or lymphatic Local disease processes : Ruptured Baker’s cyst Myositis ossificans Bony or soft-tissue tumours Arthritis Haemarthrosis Calf muscle haematoma Achilles tendon rupture Cellulitis Athlete’s foot

PowerPoint Presentation:

Non vascular or lymphatic Retroperitoneal fibrosis May lead to arterial, venous and lymphatic abnormalities Gigantism : Rare All tissues are uniformly enlarged Drugs : Corticosteroids , oestrogens , progestagens Monoamine oxidase inhibitors, phenylbutazone , methyldopa, hydralazine, nifedipine Trauma : Painful swelling due to reflex sympathetic dystrophy Obesity : Lipodystrophy Lipoidosis

PowerPoint Presentation:

Idiopathic edema diopathic edema is a pitting edema of unknown cause that occurs primarily in pre-menopausal women who do not have evidence of heart, liver, or kidney disease. In this condition, the fluid retention at first may be seen primarily pre- menstrually (just prior to menstruation), which is why it sometimes is called "cyclical" edema. However, it can become a more constant and severe problem . Obesity and depression can be associated with this syndrome, and diuretic abuse is common Spironolactone is considered the drug of choice for idiopathic edema avoiding environmental heat, low salt diet, avoiding excessive fluid intake, and weight loss for obese patients . It may be helpful to ask about depression, eating disorder

PowerPoint Presentation:

Venous insufficiency Venous insufficiency is characterized by chronic pitting edema, often associated with brown hemosiderin skin deposits on the lower legs. The skin changes can progress to dermatitis and ulceration, which usually occur over the medial maleoli . Other common findings include varicose veins and obesity. Most patients are asymptomatic but a sensation of aching or heaviness can occur . The diagnosis is usually made clinically but can be confirmed with a Doppler study . Although chronic venous insufficiency is thought to result from previous deep vein thrombosis, only one third of patients will give that history compression stockings

History Key elements of the history include What is the duration of the edema (acute [<72 hours] vs. chronic)? If the onset is acute, deep vein thrombosis should be strongly considered. Is the edema painful ? Deep vein thrombosis and reflex sympathetic dystrophy are usually painful . Chronic venous insufficiency can cause low-grade aching. Lymphedema is usually painless . What drugs are being taken? Calcium channel blockers, prednisone, and anti-inflammatory drugs are common causes of leg edema Is there a history of systemic disease (heart, liver, or kidney disease)?

PowerPoint Presentation:

Antihypertensive drugs Calcium channel blockers Beta blockers Clonidine Hydralazine Minoxidil Methyldopa Hormones Corticosteroids Estrogen Progesterone Testosterone Other Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs Pioglitazone, Rosiglitazone Monoamine oxidase inhibitors

Physical Examination Body mass index. Obesity Distribution of edema Tenderness Pitting Varicose veins Kaposi-Stemmer sign Skin changes Signs of systemic disease: findings of heart failure (especially jugular venous distension and lung crackles) and liver disease (ascites, spider hemangiomas , and jaundice) may be helpful in detecting a systemic cause.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Kaposi-Stemmer sign: inability to pinch a fold of skin at base of second toe because of thickened skin indicates lymphoedema

LYMPH O EDEMA

PowerPoint Presentation:

Lymphedema may be defined as abnormal limb swelling caused by the accumulation of increased amounts of high protein ISF secondary to defective lymphatic drainage in the presence of (near) normal net capillary filtration. LYMPH O EDEMA Definition At birth, 1 in 6000 persons will develop lymphoedema

PowerPoint Presentation:

Two main types of lymphoedema are recognised : 1 primary lymphoedema , in which the cause is unknown (or at least uncertain and unproven); it is thought to be caused by congenital lymphatic dysplasia 2 secondary or acquired lymphoedema , in which there is a clear underlying cause. Classification LYMPH O EDEMA

PowerPoint Presentation:

primary lymphoedema Three types of primary lymphedema are distinguished by age of onset. Congenital lymphedema is present at birth or occurs early in infancy. It accounts for fewer than 10% of primary lymphedema cases. Lymphedema that is both congenital and hereditary is known as Milroy's disease. Lymphedema praecox occurs at any time from puberty until the end of the third decade. Most cases of primary lymphedema are of this type. It is three times more common in women than in men. Lymphedema tarda occurs after age 30. LYMPH O EDEMA

PowerPoint Presentation:

Secondary lymphedema is due to obstruction from a variety of causes, including infection, parasites, mechanical injury (including surgery), postphlebitic syndrome, and neoplasms . In developed countries, the most common causes are obstruction by malignancies, postsurgical lymphedema (e.g., after mastectomy), and lymphatic destruction from therapeutic radiation . In less well-developed countries, parasitic obstruction (elephantiasis) is a common cause. Wuchereria bancrofti is the most common offending parasite. secondary lymphoedema LYMPH O EDEMA

LYMPH O EDEMA

PowerPoint Presentation:

This is the most common cause of lymphoedema worldwide, affecting up to 100 million individuals. It is particularly prevalent in Africa , India and South America where 5–10% of the population may be affected. The viviparous nematode Wucheria bancrofti , whose only host is man , is responsible for 90% of cases and is spread by the mosquito . The disease is associated with poor sanitation . The parasite enters lymphatics from the blood and lodges in lymph nodes, where it causes fibrosis and obstruction Filariasis
