Cerebrovascular disease is a group of brain dysfunctions related to disease of the blood vessels supplying the brain. Hypertension is the most important cause; it damages the blood vessel lining, endothelium, exposing the underlying collagen where platelets aggregate to initiate a repairing process which is not always complete and perfect. Sustained hypertension permanently changes the architecture of the blood vessels making them narrow, stiff, deformed, uneven and more vulnerable to fluctuations in blood pressure. A stroke is caused by the interruption of the blood supply to the brain, usually because a blood vessel bursts or is blocked by a clot. This cuts off the supply of oxygen and nutrients, causing damage to the brain tissue. Strokes can be classified into two major categories: ischemic and hemorrhagic. This study focuses on hemorrhagic stroke per se. Hemorrhagic strokes are primarily caused by intracranial or subarachnoid hemorrhage. The bleeding most probably occur in the brain tissue, the ventricles or/and in the subarachnoid space. Primary intracerebral hemorrhage from a spontaneous rupture of small vessels is caused chiefly by uncontrolled hypertension. Subarachnoid hemorrhage, on the other hand, results from a ruptured intracranial aneurysm. In elderly patients, a common cause of intracerebral hemorrhage is cerebral amyloid angiopathy hich involves damage caused by deposit of beta-amyloid protein in the small and medium-sized blood vessels of the brain. The most common symptom of a stroke is sudden weakness or numbness of the face, arm or leg, most often on one side of the body. Other symptoms include: confusion, difficulty speaking or understanding speech; difficulty seeing with one or both eyes; difficulty walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination; severe headache with no known cause; fainting or unconsciousness. Patients who survive the acute phase of care usually have more severe deficits and a longer recovery time compared to those who suffered from ischemic stroke. Cerbrovascular diseases end millions of lives every year. Stroke survivors have to adapt to a life with restrictions in activities of daily living as a consequence of cerebrovascular disease. Many surviving stroke patients will often depend on other people’s continuous support to survive. In many of our hospital duties, CVD was observed to be one of the most prevalent cases in the ward. Thus, it is just justifiable that we are to gain extraknowledge on this particular disease. Knowing the possible medical interventions and

nursing care to be given to such clients will enable us to give optimum care to our future clients with the same condition.

and the renal capsule (fibrous sac) surrounds the kidney and protects it from trauma and infection. The kidneys also perform the following functions: • • • Detoxify harmful substances (e.g.The kidneys regulate the volume and concentration of fluids in the body by producing urine.. They are protected by three layers of connective tissue: the renal fascia (fibrous membrane) surrounds the kidney and binds the organ to the abdominal wall. The kidneys maintain the volume and concentration of urine by filtering waste products and reabsorbing useful substances and water from the blood. Renal Artery The renal artery enters the kidney and the renal vein emerges from the kidney at an . Urine is produced in a process called glomerular filtration. minerals. which is the removal of waste products. free radicals. and water from the blood. drugs) Increase the absorption of calcium by producing calcitriol (form of vitamin D) Produce erythropoietin (hormone that stimulates red blood cell production in the bone marrow) • Secrete renin (hormone that regulates blood pressure and electrolyte balance) The kidneys are a pair of bean-shaped organs located below the ribs near the middle of the back. the adipose capsule (layer of fat) cushions the kidney.

the upper portion of the ureter. Urine then travels through the loop of Henle.g. a renal tubule. The renal pyramids extend into funnel-like extensions (called calyces). Some sections of the loop are permeable to water and impermeable to substances in the urine (e. Urine formation occurs in the renal tubules. In this section. Each section of the renal tubule performs a different function. Nephrons consist of a network of capillaries (called a glomerulus). The renal artery supplies oxygen and blood to the kidney. to the inner tissue (called the medulla). Minor calyces merge to form major calyces and major calyces merge to form the renal pelvis. Formation and Elimination of Urine The formation of urine occurs in the basic units of the kidney. Blood flows from the kidney through the renal vein after waste products have been removed. ammonia). and some sections are impermeable to water and permeable to other substances. it forms the proximal convoluted (highly coiled) tubule. a long U-shaped extension of the proximal convoluted tubule. salt. It consists of a descending limb and an ascending limb. .g. nicotine) are forced out of the blood through a permeable membrane and useful substances (e. and return to the cortex. which travel from the outer tissue of the kidney (called the cortex).indentation in the middle of the organ called the hilum. vitamins. minerals) are reabsorbed. The glomeruli are where urine production begins. Each human kidney contains over 1 million nephrons.g. glucose. waste products and toxic substances (e. ammonia.. called nephrons. and a membrane that surrounds the glomerulus and functions as a filter (called Bowman's capsule).. where the collection of urine occurs.. Extensions of the cortex project into the medulla and divide the tissue into renal pyramids. As the tube leads away from Bowman's capsule into the cortex. amino acids.

Next. have been implicated as increasing the risks for developing SLE (Cooper et al. increasing the concentration of the urine. silica dust. hematuria. the urine consists almost entirely of waste products. estrogens. Urine from several nephrons empties into each collecting tubule. urine enters the collecting tubule. Normally. where it is stored until it is eliminated from the body through the urethra.

Many environmental factors. asymptomatic proteinuria and hematuria are frequent initial manifestations that are often overlooked or misinterpreted upon physical examination. and tobacco smoke. azotemia. heavy metals. involving at least one environmental stimulus acting on a genetically susceptible host. 1998). LN frequently is not diagnosed until the . LN is a glomerular inflammatory process that frequently manifests as proteinuria. waxy casts. After passing through the distal convoluted tubule. hypertension. Urine travels from the kidneys through the ureters to the bladder. These tubules form the calyces.The next section is the distal convoluted tubule. including infectious diseases. and the calyces form the renal pelvis (upper portion of the ureter). this section is water permeable. and cellular debris. Substances that remain in the urine are reabsorbed. PATHOPHYSIOLOGY OF LUPUS NEPHRITIS Narrative The pathophysiology of SLE and LN is a complex process..

and estrogens. In SLE. SLE is characterized by the production of autoantibodies and the deposition of immune complexes (Mohan & Datta. are aggregations that always include antigen and antibody and may also include complement proteins. Negatively charged substances. Thus. also adjacent to the glomerular basement membrane. A Bowman's capsule surrounds each glomerular tuft. but it generally is not an early manifestation because unaffected nephrons often compensate for damage to injured nephrons (Greenberg.. the primary barrier to filtration. Mesangial cells between the glomerular capillaries connect them to each other (Greenberg. 1998). depending on their molecular size and shape. such as most plasma proteins including albumin. . Activated complement proteins are destructive to cells identified and marked by antibodies as foreign (Greenberg. Positively charged and neutral substances may filter easily. nucleic acids. The outer capillary wall.nephrotic syndrome emerges. The excessive activation of B lymphocytes. B lymphocytes spontaneously secrete increased amounts of antibodies. A brief review of glomerular structure is necessary before discussing the LN process (see Figure 1). The glomerulus is actually a tuft of capillaries consisting of three layers of cells. 1995). which can circulate in the blood or precipitate in tissues. results in production of autoantibodies with subsequent immune complex formation (Cooper et al. bacteria. The first discernible abnormality of SLE is hyperactivity of B lymphocytes as a result of either intrinsic B lymphocyte defects or defects in helper T lymphocytes (CD4 cells) that regulate B lymphocyte function. Renal insufficiency is a frequent outcome. Sim. 1993). a type of epithelial cells. Immune complexes. 1998). 1998). is composed of podocytes. by factors such as viruses. cannot normally filter through the glomerular basement membrane. Autoantibodies occur in response to and interact with a host's own tissues and are recognized as foreign by the host's immune system. 1998. The innermost layer of fenestrated (porous) endothelial cells is adjacent to the middle negatively charged glomerular basement membrane.

e. Many of the autoantibodies produced react with a multitude of subcellular antigens. The net result of these changes is proteinuria (Greenberg.. Immune complex deposition in glomerular capillaries is influenced by the following: rate of glomerular blood flow. Activated B lymphocytes direct humoral immune responses. However. Sim 1993). a combination of RNA and protein). glomerular.g. leukocyte infiltration and glomerular cell proliferation are initiated and the complement protein cascade is activated (Greenberg. the size and charge of immune complexes. 1997). i.e. Pollak & Pirani. prostaglandins. 1998. and glomerular capillary hemodynamic factors such as hydraulic pressure. the strength with which immune complexes are bound. Antibody deposition in itself is not sufficient to induce renal injury. monocytes. Glomerular injury is then induced either by recruitment of inflammatory cells (e.

However.autoantibodies are then available for the production of greater amounts of immune complexes. 1995). The emergence of anti-dsDNA antibodies is the hallmark of SLE and marks the final common pathway through which various causative mechanisms can act to induce renal damage. Loss of self-tolerance by helper T lymphocytes can then lead to B lymphocyte hyperactivity and the cascade of events characteristic of SLE. 1997. T lymphocytes. greater numbers of nucleosomes are released into the circulation as more cells are destroyed (Berden. the production of anti-dsDNA antibodies. Endothelial cell damage activates the . immune complex deposition and endocapillary hypercellularity (i. the nucleosomal structural alterations have the potential to transform helper T lymphocytes in such a way that they cannot distinguish self from non-self antibodies (Berden. Greenberg. and platelets) negatively affect the mesangium's ability to rid the kidneys of immune complex deposits (Berden. These are the changes that account for the myriad clinical manifestations possible with SLE. 1998). glomerular basement membrane) (Mohan & Datta.. 1997). Glomerular mesangial cells provide the predominant means for removing immune complexes by phagocytosis. Berden (1997) theorizes that because systemically-released nucleosomes are the primary targets of autoantibodies. First. toxic oxygen radicals present in the circulation as a result of complement activation can structurally alter nucleosomes (Sim. Anti-dsDNA antibodies can induce organ damage by targeting antigens directly or indirectly by first forming immune complexes with nucleosomes (complexes of histone in cell nuclei) and then being deposited onto negatively charged sites (e. 1997). proliferation of native cells or infiltration of tissue by neutrophils.e.g. Qualitative and quantitative changes in nucleosomes may be a consequence of disturbed apoptosis. 1993). monocytes. Third.. they can contribute to the evolution of tissue lesions. Thrombi occur frequently in active LN. and the induction of autoimmunity. Second.

and genetically determined differences in host reactivity are responsible for differences in pathology observed in SLE and for the factors responsible for disease progression (Cameron. The World Health Organization (WHO) has described a classification system with six categories of renal pathology with SLE.
