Angioedema Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Learning objectives • Define Angioedema & Mention its types. • State the Etiological Causes. • Explain the Pathophysiology. • Mention the Signs & Symptoms. • Clarify the Diagnostic Investigations. • Demonstrate the Treatment & prevention.
  • 2. Angioedema • Rapid nonpitting edema of the dermis, subcutaneous tissue, mucosa and submucosal tissues. • Self-Limited, subcutaneous edema resulting from increased vascular permeability o Dilation of venules and capillaries o Limited to the superficial dermis • Generally resolves over 24-48 hours
  • 3. Etiology Allergic Angioedema Ace Inhibitor Induced Angioedema Chronic Idiopathic Angioedema Acquired Angioedema Hereditary Angioedema
  • 4. Allergic Angioedema• Most Common Type• Classic histamine response• Causes; Food, Drugs, Bee Sting, venom, latex• Urticaria Present Urticaria• Complement assays normal
  • 5. AllergenPathophysiology 1. Allergic reaction Mast cell FcɛRIHistamine IgE
  • 6. Pathophysiology2. Systemic effects↑ mucus BV expansion Conservative Itching &secretion & edema Respiratory rash airways
  • 7. Ace Inhibitor Induced Angioedema • Increased Bradykinin • Airway edema is the most common presentation • Causes; nonsteroidal anti- inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and intravenous contrast material; aspirin is the most common culprit. • Complement assay normal
  • 8. Bradykinin• A mediator that functions to; o Potent endothelium vasodilator o Contraction of non-vascular smooth muscle o Increases vascular permeability o Involved in mechanism of pain
  • 9. Chronic Idiopathic Angioedema • The exact mechanisms are unclear. Some may be associated with urticaria. Based on responses to medication, some cases are mediated by mast cell activation. • Urticaria present. • Laryngeal edema rare. • Causes are, by definition, not identifiable. • Complement assays normal.
  • 10. Hereditary Angioedema • Rare (1:50 000-1:150 000) • Autosomal Dominant • Cause; chromosome 11 abnormality • Disorder of C1INH (only regulator of classical complement pathway activation) o Type 1 (85%) low levels of C1INH and functional deficiency o Type 2 (15%) Normal protein concentration but functional defect
  • 11. Hereditary Angioedema Pathophysiology C1-INH Vaso-plasmin kallikrein Bradykcinin Angioedema dilation
  • 12. Acquired Angioedema • Most similar in mechanism to HAE • No Family History • Causes; Deficiency of C1-INH due to o Type I: Lymphoproliferative Disorder (MDS/MGUS) o Type II: Autoimmune Disorder (SLE) 4th decade of life • All complement assays are low including C1q
  • 13. Signs & Symptoms • Sudden appearance of red welts, near eyes & lips, also hands, feet, and inside of throat • Burning, painful, swollen areas; sometimes itchy • Discolored patches or rash on the hands, feet, face, or genitals • hoarseness, tight or swollen throat, breathing trouble
  • 14. Complications The distinction Anaphylaxis between symptoms of Angioedema & complications of Angioedema is unclear or Life- arbitrary. threatening airway blockage
  • 15. Diagnosis • The health care provider will o Look at your skin o Ask about beening exposed to any irritating substances. • A physical exam might reveal abnormal sounds (stridor) when you breathe in if your throat is affected. • The health care provider may perform o blood tests o allergy testing
  • 16. Treatment• If the person has trouble breathing, seek immediate medical help.• Medications include Antihistamines Anti-inflammatory medicines (corticosteroids) Epinephrine shots Inhaler medicines that help open up the airways Ranitidine (Zantac)
  • 17. Prevention Avoid irritating the Stay away from known affected area. allergens. Never take medications that are not prescribed
