DEFINITION Oedema results from the accumulation of excess fluid in the interstitial space s or serous cavities. 8.3.2013 3


Classification Depending on nature of fluid Inflammatory edema ( due to increased vascular permeability ) Non-inflammatory edema ( due to osmotic or hydrostatic pressure imbalance) 8.3.2013 4

. Depending on site of collection Generalized edema due to transudation of salt and water, as in e.g - hypoproteinemic syndrome congestive cardiac failure acute glomerular nephritis nephrotic syndrome cirrhosis Localized edema d ue to increased permeability of small blood vessels, e.g , infection, trauma, burns, allergy lymphatic obstruction, e.g – malignancy, filariasis , chronic infection. venous obstruction, e.g – thrombosis, malignant infiltration 8.3.2013 6

Causes of Edema (Mnemonics) THE LEAK OF VEINS T umor H eart failure E nteropathy (protein-losing) L iver failure E ndocrine (hypothyroidism, aldosterones,diabetes ) A ltitude sickness K idney disease (renal failure, nephrotic syndrome) O bstruction of lymphatics F ilariasis V enous thrombosis E clampsia / pregnancy I atrogenic N utritional deficiency S epsis / capillary leakage (from Davidson Differential Diagnosis Mnemonics) 8.3.2013 7

General Principles in the formation of Interstitial Fluid:

General Principles in the formation of Interstitial Fluid About 24 litres of fluid are filtered through the capillaries per day. 85 % - reabsorbed into the capillaries . 15 % - returned to the circulation via lymphatics The formation of ISF is regulated according to the Starling hypothesis , which incorporates 5 factors – capillary hydrostatic pressure, interstitial tissue pressure, plasma oncotic pressure, endothelial permeability and lymphatic function. 8.3.2013 8

. The arterial hydrostatic pressure, in excess of tissue pressure, tends to cause transudation of salt and water out of the capillaries The oncotic pressure of plasma proteins tends to draw fluid back in . There is thus on overall loss of fluid from the capillary at its arterial end, reabsorption at the venous end . About 15% of fluid accumulating in the interstitial space passes into lymphatic vessels. From here, it passes into the general circulation via the main lymphatic channels. 8.3.2013 10

PowerPoint Presentation:

A low plasma oncotic pressure or increased hydrostatic pressure at the venous end of capillary will tend to cause edema . 8.3.2013 11

Generalized Edema :

Generalized Edema Na+ is the most important osmotically active constituent of the ECF. The control of EFC volume ( & the formation of edema) mainly control by the factors that regulate the accumulation of Na+ in the body and excretion of Na+ by the kidneys . About 85% of filtered Na + is reabsorbed in proximal convoluted tubules . The remaining 15% is variably reabsorbed in the distal tubule , partly with Cl - ions and partly in exchange for K + a nd H + ions. 8.3.2013 12

PowerPoint Presentation:

The regulation of sodium excretion is probably mainly through adjustment of this 15 %. 'Aldosterone ' effects on distal renal tubule, causing Na + reabsorption and K + excretion. This effect is blocked by spironolactone. 8.3.2013 13

Angiotensin II Stimulate " aldosterone " secretion from adrenal cortex Vasoconstriction Secretion of ADH by acting on hypothalamus Final result is salt & water retentions . 8.3.2013 15

Hypoproteinemic State :

Hypoproteinemic State The major part of plasma oncotic pressure can be attributed to its albumin content . Hypoalbuminemia may be due to - failure of synthesis protein malnutrition (Kwashiorkor ) cirrhosis long lasting ill-health from many causes increased loss as in nrephrotic syndrome . When serum albumin falls below 25 g/l, there is transudation of solutes (mainly salt and water) out of the capillaries into intercellular space. When this comportment is expanded by about 10%, clinically evident edema appears. 8.3.2013 17


. . ↓ Plasma protein level (esp . albumin) ↓oncotic pressure transudation of solutes Edema 8.3.2013 18

Heart Failure:

Heart Failure ↓ Cardiac output Accumulation of fluid in LV Congestion of blood in LA Congestion of blood in pulmonary veins ↑ Capillary hydrostatic pressure Pulmonary edema ↓ Effective arterial blood volume ↓ Renal perfusion RAA System activation ↑ADH ↑aldosterone Salt & water retentions Fluid overload Left Heart Failure 8.3.2013 19


. ↓ Contraction of RV Congestion of RA Congestion of SVC & IVC ↑Congestion in venules & capillaries ↓Cardiac output from LV ↓Arterial Blood Volume RAA System activation ↑ADH Salt & Water retentions Right Heart Failure Generalized Edema 8.3.2013 20

PowerPoint Presentation:

Passive congestion of " Liver“ Liver function ↓ Plasma protein synthesis ↓ Plasma oncotic pressure Generalized Edema In Heart failure, unless the cardiac output is restored or renal sodium and water retention is reduced (e.g.- diuretics, or aldosterone antagonists), fluid retentions occurs and edema worsens. 8.3.2013 21

Investigations of Generalized edema :

Investigations of Generalized edema Chest X-ray - sign of heart failure, cardiomegaly Plasma albumin - low in nephrotic syndrome, cirrhosis, malnutrition Blood urea and electrolytes - diminished GFR in renal disease or in severe cardiac failure 8.3.2013 27

Localized edema :

Localized edema Oedema due to increased Permeability of small Blood vessels Increased permeability is due to local release of inflammatory mediators, e.g.-histamine, bradykinin , and cytokines ,which cause vasodilation and increase capillary permeability. e.g . Acute inflammatory edema(e.g .- infection) Allergic edema 8.3.2013 28

. Angio -edema is a specific form of allergic edema, affecting face, lip & mouth. Swelling may develop rapidly and may be life-threatening if upper airway is involved. 8.3.2013 30


. (2)Lymphatic Obstruction Impaired lymphatic drainage result in edema ( lymphedema ). Lymph vessels have a large collateral circulation, so that , with any block, edema extend over a wide area . Secondary cancer in lymph nodes may cause edema , but usually the block is more extensive by dissection of nodes and radiography , e.g.-in the treatment of breast cancer . In filariasis , lymphatic obstruction occurs due to the widespread fibrosis in lymphatic channels caused by the adult filarial worms. 8.3.2013 31

. (3)Venous obstruction Major cause - deep vein thrombosis, external pressure from a tumor or pregnancy, or valvular incompitance . SVCO is caused by a tumor in superior mediastinum, commonly lung cancer. 8.3.2013 33

Investigations of Localized edema :

Investigations of Localized edema Chest X-ray – SVCO Pelvic ultrasound or CT scan – pelvic tumor or lymphatic enlargement Lymphangiography – abnormal lymphatic architecture, lymph nodes replaced by tumor Doppler ultrasound or venography – to confirm diagnosis of venous obstruction 8.3.2013 35
