Spleen Complications Or Splenic Abscess In Sickle Cell Disease

Splenic abscess in sickle cell disease patients is one of the spleen dysfunction found in this set of patients. It is a result of infective endocarditis which occurs in about five percent of patients, thus splenic abscess is an infectious disease that moves from a contagious site to the spleen in the body.

Bone Marrow Hyperplasia In Sickle cell disease

Bone marrow hyperplasia is a condition of sickle cell disease patients that also leads to anemia and it also has a resultant effect of weakening the skeletal tissue by widening the medullary cavities, thereby replacing trabecular bone and thinning cortices. Bone marrow is the part of the human body responsible for the new production of bone marrow stem cells and other substances which would, in turn, produce blood cells such as the red blood cells RBCs, white blood cells WBCs, and other blood components, it is a spongy like substance found in the center of bones.

Splenic Anomalies Of Sickle Cell Disease Patients

The spleen of sickle cell disease patients tends to differ from the normal spleen in areas such as shape, number, size, and location that is due to an aberrant embryologic development in the spleen. The spleen is attached to the posterior abdominal wall by two fatty ligaments one of which is the gastrosplenic ligament which connects the greater curvature of the stomach to the ventral aspect of the spleen, and the second is the splenorenal ligament which is found between the left kidney and the spleen.

Sickle Cell Disease In Hyperplasia

Hyperplasia is seen as an increased number of cells resulting in the increase in mass of tissue or organ affected in sickle cell disease patients. Hyperplasia is a condition that allows for the enlargement of an organ or tissue caused by an increase in the amount of organic tissue that results from cell proliferation.

Thrombotic Stroke In Sickle Cell Disease

Thrombotic strokes are strokes that occur in sickle cell disease patients which are caused by a thrombus (blood clot) that develops in the arteries which supply blood directly to the brain. Sickle cell disease patients could develop thrombotic stroke when they have a high cholesterol level, a case of diabetes, and also an underlying disease called atherosclerosis.

Right Brain Cerebral Stroke In Sickle Cell Disease

The right brain cerebral stroke is a type of ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke that is a resultant of the restriction of blood supply to the right side of the brain in sickle cell disease patients. When right brain cerebral stroke occurs, it is due to prolonged starvation of oxygen to the brain cells for about three to five minutes (3-5 minutes), causing the brain cells to cease function and die.

Respiratory Failure In Sickle Cell

Respiratory failure is the inability of the respiratory system to function properly in sickle cell disease patients during the gaseous exchange. Acute respiratory failure occurs when fluids are seen to have built up in the air sacs in the lungs. When this condition happens, the lungs in sickle cell disease patients cannot release oxygen into the blood.

Cerebral or Brain aneurysm in sickle cell disease

Sickle cell disease patients are at risk of developing a high incidence of the cerebral aneurysms or brain aneurysms. These aneurysms are not known to be associated with the usual risk factors of hypertension, renal disease, or connective tissue disease. Silent cerebral infarcts and cerebral aneurysms are most prevalent in adults in sickle cell disease patients or sickle cell anemia patients.

Health conditions that causes frequent urination

It is very good to urinate, but when you do this frequently, there may be an underlying health condition. When your ureter, urethra, kidney and bladder are infected, you will experience frequent urination. You will notice or experience a change in your urine color, loss of bladder control, discomfort while urinating, a strong urge to urinate and others. Excessive consumption of caffeine, water and alcohol are physical factors that causes frequent urination. I will go detailed by sharing some medical conditions

Anoxia Complications In Sickle Cell Persons

Anoxia in sickle cell disease patients occurs when the body or brain completely loses or is cut off from its oxygen supply. Anoxia is resultant of hypoxia. When the patient’s body is damaged or injured by a lack of oxygen, it is called hypoxic-anoxic injury or damage.

Pathophysiology Of Sickle Cell Disease

Pathophysiology of sickle cell disease has to do it with its adverse effects and protean or variable complications, which has led to recent advances that are targeted towards molecular therapies for sickle cell disease patients. In sickle cell disease, a single amino acid substitution in the beta-globin β-globin chain leads to the polymerization of the mutant hemoglobin S that leads to the impairment of the erythrocyte (red blood cells) rheology and survival.

Mechanical ventilation (ischemic stroke) in sickle cell disease

Mechanical ventilation is a form of management of ischemic stroke in sickle cell disease patients. Mechanical ventilation is often performed in these patients due to a seen swallowing disorder and an airway or a respiratory system compromise. Sickle cell disease patients with stroke-induced immunosuppression and brain organ crosstalk have an increased rate of pulmonary damage and pulmonary inflammation, and also a reduced alveolar phagocytic capability increases the risk of infection.
