History:
You should include in HPI:
* 1-DM.
2- HTN.
3- Hyperlipidemia.
4- Smoking.
5- Family history of IHD.
* Chest pain duration > 30 minutes.
Examination:
1- Vitals:
Blood Pressure: high Blood Pressure in HTN, MI may cause low BP.
Pulse: Arrhythmia.
Temp.: sometimes increase in MI.
2- Look for:
* Heart failure evidence:
Increase JVP, 3
RD
heart sound, basal lung crepitations, ascites,
hepatomegaly, lower limb edema.
* Valvular heart disease evidence: valve incompetence, VSD…etc.
* Pericardial rub on auscultation.
3- Look for underlying disease:
- DM complications.
- Atherosclerosis.

Investigations:
1-ECG:
*- type of MI: anterior, posterior, inferior …etc.
*- pericarditis.
*- arrhythmias: AF, ventricular ectopic, ventricular tachycardia, LBBB, RBBB,
2
nd
degree heart block, complete heart block.
*- evidence of previous ischemia ¬ if pt. has previous MI, the new ECG
changes will NOT show ¬ then do Cardiac Enzymes.
2- Cardiac enzymes: to be raised
time of each enzyme is important & common question in exams
C troponine ¬ immediate 30 minutes- 1 hour (earliest to rise + more
sensitive).
C CPK ¬ 4 hours + CPK-MB ratio.
C LDH ¬ 72 hours.
3-chest x-ray ¬ cardiomegaly, HF: pulmonary edema, pleural effusion.
4- Blood sugar.
5- Lipid profile.
6- PT, PTT (base line).
7- Urea & electrolytes: baseline ttt. or complication.
8- CBC: leukocytosis.

Treatment:
Typical history of retrosternal chest pain.
1- Chewable aspirin before investigation, will not kill pt. & will benefit + O2.
2- Relief pain: morphine & antiemetic.
3- & start tridine infusion to relief pain, vasodilation.
4- antithrombolytic therapy if no contraindication.
*review the contraindication from textbook*
After stabilized:
Before discharge:
1- Echocardiogram for: (why do we do echo?)
* Valvular heart disease.
* Ejection fraction abnormality < 50 ¬ low.
It should be around 50 ¬ normal.
* Wall motion abnormality ¬ hypokinesia:
Heart not contract at site of infarction, generalized in cardiomyopathy.
2- (Before not nowadays) submaximal stress ECG.
This is to do exercise for 10 minute= submaximal (maximal test is 30
minutes) to see if complications develop: 1- arrhythmia
2-hypotension
This was done before to decide if argent angiogram will done or delayed 4-5
weeks.
But now all patients i.e. MI. should have angiogram angioplasty dilation or
bypass surgery…. The earlier, the better the prognosis.

Role of thrombolytic therapy & angiogram:
If the time from ER door to angiogram more than 90 minutes, don't waste
time give thromolytic therapy.
If the time within 90 minutes immediately for angiogram.
Home medication:
2ry prevention of MI ¬ 4 medication
1- Aspirin
2- B-blocker.
3- ACE Inhibitors.
4- Statin.
+/- lasix.
Management of MI (briefly for 5
th
year):
1- Admit patient to the ICU & give O
2
¬ oxy-bed rest.
2- Prescribe painkillers.
3- Thrombolytic therapy ¬ streptokinase ¬ resolve the thrombus

Heart Failure (HF)
Dr. Nabeel
Eight Causes are preferable to be Heard by any Students when Dr. Nabeel
Al-a3ma asks about the causes of HF?
1- Ischemic Heart disease (IHD) which is the commonest.
2- HTN or Hypertensive Heart disease with end Organ damage.
3- Valvular Heart disease…and the commonest cause is Rheumatic heart
disease.
4- Cardiomyopathy.
5- Congenital heart disease.
6- Core-pulmonale.
7- Constrictive pericarditis.
8- Heart failure with high cardiac Output... Like in Thyrotoxicosis,
anemia….
Also He loves to ask this Question:
Patient is known having HF... What are the causes that push him to a failure
and to the ER… i.e.: what are the precipitating factors for HF?
1- Infection (pneumonia).
2- P.embolism esp. if he's bedridden.
3- Ongoing Ischemic heart disease…MI.
4- No compliance with medications.
5- Arrhythmia.
6- Taking NSAID. Which cause salt and water retention.
7- Taking ca channel blocker…Negative inotropic agent.
8- High salt intake.
9- Uncontrolled HTN.
10- Hyperdynamic circulation.. Like in anemia... Thyrotoxicosis.

History in ER:
No History suggestive of IHD.
Known case of HF.
No History of palpitation.
Pt was compliant to his medications.
No change in diet.
That is important to mention in History,
ﺐﺒﺴﻤﻟا و ﺔﻟﺎﺤﻟا ﺐﺴﺣ غﺎﺼﻳ مﻼﻜﻟا ﻦﻜﻟ
Examination:
Same of MI.
Look for evidence of – heart failure - arrhythmia - infection -underlying
cause.
Investigation: like MI
Same Q with Dr. Maimoona, but she only mentioned these:
This way, the pt got acute HF...
1- IHD.
2- Hyperdynamic circulation ¬ anemia, Thyrotoxicosis.
3- Valvular heart disease.
4- HTN.
5- Arrhythmias.
6- Increased salt intake.
7- No compliance to drugs.

Management:
On admission:
1- Start loop diuretic fursemide 40 mg TID.
2- Start spironolactone 25 mg ¬ take 3 days to work
in HF, nephrotic $, liver failure ¬ low kidney perfusion ¬ activate renine-
angiotensin system.
Spironolactone will block it so no Na/H2O retention & not used as K sparing.
+ 4 drugs:
(1) Aspirin.
(2) B-blocker.
(3) ACEI.
(4) Statin.
Note: moderate/sever HF do not give B-blocker.
If echo show ejection fraction below 25% you have to give anticoagulant.

- Bed rest
- High dose aspirin. The nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID)
naproxen has also been studied. It is effective and may be easier to use than
aspirin.
- Penicillin ¬ then long term to patient with persistent cardiac damage
- Heart failure may require digitalis
- Haloperidol may be helpful in controlling chorea.

discharge of multi atria foci.
Causes:
A- Cardiovascular :
1- HTN.
2- IHD (including acute MI).
3- Valvular heart disease esp. Rheumatic "Ms, MR, AS, AR".
4- VSD.
5- Cardiac surgery.
6- Inflammatory heart disease "pericarditis, myocarditis".
7- Cardiomyopathy.
8- Left atrial myxoma.
9- Sick sinus syndrome "tachy-Brady syndrome".
10- WPW syndrome (wolf Parkinson white).
B- Endocrinological causes:
1- Thyrotoxicosis.
2- Pheochromocytoma.

2- Pneumonia.
3- COPD
4- Co poising.
5- Ca of the Bronchus.
D- Drugs:
1- Acute or chronic alcohol.
2- Theophylline toxicity.
E - Idiopathic:
Lone AF in which no cardiac cause can be identified, no DM, no HTN and no
CAD.
Symptoms of AF:
1- Asymptomatic.
2- Symptoms vary from Palpitation and SOB and aggravating of HF.
3- Embolization symptoms.

Investigation:
1- Thyroid function test.
2- ECG ¬ absence P wave + Irregular R-R interval more than 100.
3- U and E ¬ if hypo K ¬ don’t give digoxin because it will lead also to
arrhythmias.
4- PT and PTT.
5- Cardiac enzymes.
6- CXR ¬ p. edema.
7- Echo ¬ so in here we're doing:
A- Assess etiology and recurrence of:
1- Cardiac chamber size and function ¬ i.e.: left atrium.
2- Valvular function.
3- The pericardium.
4- The myocardium.
B- Identification of patient at high risk of thromboembolism
complication of AF.

Management of AF:
1- Treat the cause.
2- How to Control Ventricular rate ( VR)?
3- How to convert to sinus rhythm?
4- How to maintain sinus rhythm?
5- When and How to use anticoagulant and antiplatlets?
Types of AF:
1- Isolated one “single".
2- Paroxysmal ¬ don't give digoxin.
3- Sustained one ¬ chronic.
So the Management:
If the Patient is not stable ¬ Do DC cardioversion.
If stable follow that previously mentioned points.
So,
1- Treat the cause.

- Contraindication of Digoxin:
1- HOCM.
2- WPW so in here use procainamide.
3- Narrow QRS ¬ atrial tachycardia.
- Digoxin dose: in Normal Patient: 0.25 mg, and in renal disease: 0.06 -
0.125 mg.
B- B-Blocker:
Usually given with Ca channel blocker ¬ because more rapid control. But
digoxin is more preferable in the setting of LVF or HF.
So, propranolol 0.5 mg IV ¬ followed by IV bolus 1 mg every 5 mints till
…???
The contraindication of B-blocker is:
Asthma, Dm and HF.
C- Ca Channel blocker:
Verampil 5 – 10 mg bolus / 10 mints.
If you want to give verampil + digoxin ¬ decrease digoxin dose.

3- Convert to Sinus Rhythm:
Indicated when VR is more than 140 B/m.
The drugs used in here:
- Class 1a: Quinidine - procainamide.
- Class 1c: Flecainide - propafenone
- Class 3: Amiodarone
So the preparation:
1- Start Quinidine at least 24 h before to help maintain NSR once it's
achieved.
2- Hold Digoxin and check its serum level.
3- Anticoagulant ¬ 3 weeks before and after if there's thrombus shown
in echo.
Indications for anticoagulation: Clinically and ECG:
Clinically:
1- Previous MI or Stroke.
2- HTM +/- Dm.
3- Previous MI.
4- Thyrotoxicosis ¬ in here, decrease the Warfarin dose because of
increased clearance of vitamin K in Hyperthyroidism.

In patient with COPD ¬ chronic hypercapnia ¬ chronic stimulation of
respiratory center, so, when you admit the patient you must increase
the conc. Of O2
YOU should wash out the remnant of hypoxemia which stimulates the
drive for ventilation ¬ worsening hypercapnia

1- Underlying cause:
 DM ¬ how long? ¬does pt has retinopathy (because nephropathy
occur at same time)
¬ Swelling – renal biopsy – controlled?
 HTN ¬ How long?
¬ Control
HF
 Unknown etiology
 SLE (pt knows about it) ¬ medications, ……. etc
E Type II diabetic patient for a long time on oral
hypoglycemic, without changing his diet or medications.
How did his DM became controlled? Even sometimes he
has hypoglycemia
Due to development of renal failure
As the insulin is metabolized in kidney, it will be preserved ¬ 
insulin
This will lead to control of sugar
So, Oral hypoglycemic should be stopped
E Do you expect this pt to have retinopathy?
No, because his diabetes is controlled

CLD
Dr.Maimoona
When a patient presents with hepatic symptoms, 1
st
search for acute causes of
illness then ask about chronic.
ETIOLOGY:
(1) infection:
- hepatitis
 B ¬ sexually
 C ¬ blood transfusion / vertical from mother to child
- Schistosomiasis (Bilharziasis)
- Hydatid cyst ¬ by compression, not hepatocellular.
- TB ¬ most common in KSA.
- HIV ¬ usually acute, but chronic if patient lives long enough.
(2) Alcohol ÷ always take History of alcohol.
* Most likely jobs to be alcoholic & drug abusers:
- Cops & Army.
- People working at port of entry.
REMEMBER! These infections are causes of acute, not chronic liver
disease:
- CMV
- Toxoplasmosis
- EBV
- Malaria

3- Constructional apraxia: draw a 5 pointed star (better) or draw a square.
Investigations:
That should be done to all patients:
(1) CBC:
- Leukocytosis ¬ infection.
- Cytopenia ¬ hypersplenism & vasculitis (CTD).
 Anemia.
 Leucopenia.
 Thrombocytopenia.

3- prerenal failure ¬ increase urea & creatinine.
(4) Blood glucose ¬ hypoglycemic, because there is no gluconeogenesis in liver.
(5) Hepatitis B & C serology ¬ most common in KSA.
(6) α-fetoprotein (AFP) & abdominal US ¬ every 6 months --- for hepatoma.
*NOTE:
If all these didn't help you, then you'll do the other tests if symptoms are suggestive (but
in a written exam, you have to write them all) ©
(7) Abdominal US/CT (only 1, if US didn't help: do CT)

Role of liver biopsy in chronic hepatitis:
1. To establish the diagnosis
2. For the detection or exclusion of other diseases
3. For grading
4. For staging
5. Evaluation of therapeutic effect
Note:
 Initially the inflammatory cells limited in the portal tract ¬ then in a
lobule ¬ then spreads to the portal vein.
 The liver histological specimen is usually stained with H&E.
 Cirrhosis: is the complete distraction of hepatic nodules. Moreover, a
patient with hepatic cirrhosis is more liable to develop HCC.
Classification of CLD according to the cause:
1. Infection : viral hepatitis ( B, C, D )
2. Autoimmune hepatitis
3. Alcoholic
4. Drugs ( methotrexate, isonizaid, methyldopa, … )
5. Metabolic ¬ fatty liver
6. Cholestatic ¬ 1ry & 2ry biliary cirrhosis
¬ sclerosing cholangitis
7. Infiltrative
8. Vascular problem ( cardiac cirrhosis )
9. Neoplastic ¬ benign
¬ Malignant ¬ 1ry
¬ 2ry
10. Idiopathic

Note:
 4 months are needed to develop HBVs Abs
 1-2 weeks are needed to develop HBVc Abs ¬ IgM ¬ then IgG
Therefore¬ 1. HBVs Abs remains for 4 months or more
2. HBVs Abs ¬ (Positive + )
3. Persistent vireamia ¬ detected by ¬ PCR
Natural History of hepatitis B in adult by:
Acute HBV
¬ 95 % recovery & immunity
¬ 5 % chronic hepatitis
Note:
 If the patient becomes jaundiced – feverish – ill , that signifies that his
immune system is intact and is trying to defend the body against the
disease
 Chronicity risk  by aging (  age ¬  chronicity )
 Mode of transmission :
¬ Neonate : vertical infection from the mother to the fetus ( 90%
chronic )
¬ Adult: horizontal infection
 Even if the patient is Asymptomatic but has persistent viremia, he has
the same chance of infection with HCC as a patient who is
Symptomatic.

Classification of autoimmune hepatitis:
Types Serum auto Abs Auto Ag
I 1. Serum anti nuclear
2. Anti mitochondria
3. anti-smooth Abs
- Double stranded DNA
in some but target Ags.
- In liver disease not fully
defined action.
II 1. Anti liver & kidney LK
2. Microsomal ( Abs type I
LKM )
- Cytochrome P450 11D
- Cytochrome 8 + 18
III Antisoluble liver Ag -
The interpretation of aggregated score is:
 Type I in female at menopause and teenage years.
 Type II & III more in children
 If the score of the criteria is 15 before ttt and greater than 17 after ttt :
¬ It’s Definitive autoimmune hepatitis
 If the score of the criteria is 10 – 15 before ttt & 12 – 17 after ttt
¬ It’s Probably autoimmune hepatitis
Alcoholic Liver Disease
Depends on:
 Amount per day
 More than 10 years consumption
 Genetic predisposition

Treatment of chronic hepatitis:
A. Interferon (INF ) :
But not in Saudi patients since they fulfill the criteria for ttt with INF.
1. It's effective in treatment if the infection is recent (not more than 2
years), but most Saudi patients have established the infection since
childhood (more than 30 years).
2. INF is effective only if the liver enzymes are elevated twice the normal,
which does not apply to Saudi patients. (They have high liver enzymes
but not as twice).
3. Most of the viruses here in Saudi Arabia are pre-coremutant viruses
which are resistant to INF ¬ so, once you stop the ttt viremia it will
rise again.
4. It should not be given to a patient with an autoimmune disease such as
SLE, RA.
5. Also it should not be prescribed to patients with leukopenia and
thrombocytopenia (CBC).
New combination: - INF + Ribavirine

C. Liver transplantation :
- Not all HCC are sent for assessment of liver transplantation.
- Only in case of Liver failure
- Most of deaths occur ¬ early = infection
Late = rejection
- Nowadays, transplantation of the left lobe enhances the liver to be a
complete one within 6 months. The donor’s liver will grow another left lobe to
replace the donated lobe.

How to diagnose HCV?
1. ELISA : detect HCV Abs ¬ Generation 1
¬ Generation 2
¬ Generation 3
- If ELISA is (positive) that means the patient has the Abs ¬ has the
infection for at least 6 months.
- If liver enzymes > 1000 it means the infection is acute.
- Incubation period for HCV ( 30 – 90 days )
- After 1 month the patient starts to have an increase  in liver enzymes
either ¬ clinical
Or ¬ subclinical
2. PCR (positive): only after 2 weeks of the infection.
3. RIBA: Recombinant Immuno Blotting Assay = detects Abs earlier than
ELISA.
Q: PCR (+) increase in liver enzymes, what is to be done?
We cannot start the treatment for any patient with HCV unless:
1. Decompensate CLD e.g. reaching the stage of Ascites – varices
2. Alpha IF or Rebavirine is contraindicated for a reason or the other.

So, when we discover HCV infections we should decide in which stage is the
patient by taking History & physical examination.
1. Jaundice
2. Hematemesis
3. Asterixis
4. Lower limb edema
5. Epistaxis
6. Bleeding gum
7. Abdominal pain & distention
α-IF ( S.C ) + Ribavirine ( tablets ) = ttt of HCV + CLD
Could be used with any patient with compensated CLD and has no
contraindication to medication.
Decompensation (Ascites - Encephalopathy- varices)
Investigations:
1. Baseline CBC ¬ because ¬ α -IF cause ¬ leukopenia ( neutropenia )
¬ Thrombocytopenia
- So we need to know his baseline.
- If the patient is already leukopenic, he is not a good candidate for
α-IF.
2. Left ¬ synthetic function ( PT – PTT – Albumin )
¬ Excretory function (bilirubin)
 α-IF should not be given to any autoimmune pt. e.g. SLE , RA.
Because it will worse the condition.
 α-IF can cause thyroid dysfunction ¬ hypo ( common )
¬ & hyperthyroidism
& this S/E is the only S/E of a-IF which is not reversible. That's why we
need to do TFT ( T3 – TSH ).

 Rebavirine should not be given to a pregnant patient can't control
her because it is teratogenic.
 Rebavirine could cause hemolysis so it shouldn’t ever be given to
patient with hemolytic anemia.
 Rebavirine until now doesn’t have an exact defined dose. So, a
follow-up is need.
 Rebavirine could cause impaired renal function. So, a baseline
should be done on RFT.
End ttt Response ( ETR )
Sustained Viral Response ( SVR )
After finishing ttt (6 or 12 months),
& liver enzymes (negative)
& PCR (negative)
¬ It is ETR
But my aim is to have PCR (negative) after 6 months of stopping ttt.
¬ At this time it's (SVR).
1
st
time the HCV was discovered was in 1989
α-IF for 6 months ¬ response ¬ 6 %
After 1994 ¬ extended monotherapy ¬ for 1y ¬ 15 %
In 1998 α-IF + Rebavirin ¬ response ¬ 41 %
HCV ¬ 6 genotypes ¬ type I & IV (requires a year) disresponse to
α-IF – Rebavirine
¬ While genotype II & III (requires 6 months)
cause better response 60%.

¬ Some patients could have co-infection of I & II

It fails many times due to mutation in genotype, that is why we give
pegylated IF.
Polyethylene glycol + α-IF ¬ pegylated IF ¬ In type IV after 1y
(41 % response).
¬ In type II / III
(~ 80 % response).
Factors affecting response:
1. Younger than 40 years.
2. Female better than male.
3. Genotype II is & III better than I & IV.
4. Degree of cirrhosis.
5. Viral load.

Management
- Need to give thyroxin gradually because the heart in hypothyroidism is
functioning slowly, so if we give ↑thyroxin this would ↑ metabolic demand.
The heart cannot cooperate with this & might infarct.
- 0.5 μ.g thyroxin ( as starting point then gradually ↑ for life as replacement )
& follow her up within 6-8 weeks to see the stabilization of thyroid level
because it is half life is ( 6-8 ) weeks .
** In elderly start with low dose WHY??
↓metabolic rate ¬ can go in infarction
- Better not to operate on hypothyroid patient till 3 months. If it is an
emergency operation order it. She will not die from hypothyroidism but from
operation.

TTT of Grave's disease:
1- Radioactive iodine (no increased risk of malignancy & need only one
setting for adjusted dose) ¬ method of choice better than anti-thyroid &
surgery … WHY?

At last 1.5 – 2 years + ↑ recurrence
1- Low recurrence rate.
2- Better compliance.

- The only percussion is conception.
- Need to stop radiation by at least 2 months.
- Rare complication is inducing thyroiditis.
- Rare complication in Grave's with eye sign is aggravation
- Of the eye sign that why we start them on oral corticosteroid about 3-4
days before isotope radiation for 3-4 weeks ( 30 – 40 mg / day )

3- Neumercazole :
The most important side effect is neutropenia so warn the patient if they
develop any fever to come to ER & report that they are taking anti-thyroid
drug, stop medication & shift to other type.
After starting the patient on a big dose (35 -30 mg / day Neumercazole)
then, see him in 6-8 weeks & give her the maintenance dose.
If she gets pregnant: follow-up with her & adjust the dose according to her
TFT & continue normally on Neumercazole with no problem.
- Once level of TSH stabilized follow her up every 3-6 months by TSH, even if
N don't change the dose!!
- If a patient admits with ↓T4 but TSH is N that means she has poor
compliance ¬ ﻈﺘﻧﺎﺑ بﻮﺒﺤﻟا ﺬﺧﺄﺗ ﻰﺴﻨﺗ مﺎ

Loin pain can be presented in SLE due to:
-Infraction (vasculitis).
-Infection.
-Renal vein thrombosis which is noticed as antiphospholipid syndrome (APS)
Normal ESR level up to 20mml/h
Zero ESR is seen in polycythemia.

In History:
+ Dr Fat'h Al-deen likes this scenario when a student presents the History:
Is a patient is known to have SLE for 10 years Based on (mention the criteria that
was presented by the patient), thus upon them the diagnosis made and was
diagnosed by dr. ____ then she was admitted to the hospital with flare up of her
SLE complaining of ____
+ Dr Fatmah Al-Beladi says "never say SLE alone"
Known as SLE,
- When was it diagnosed?
- What criteria are they based on? ¬ Clinical & Laboratory.
- Treated with what?
- Complicated with what?
Always ask about chemotherapy, if the patient doesn't know ¬ ask about: an
expensive tablets or drugs taken through IV once every month, because if she has
Lupus nephritis ¬ class VI is usually treated by chemo.
Causes of death in a SLE patient?
1- Infections (opportunistic).
2- Renal /CNS involvement (active SLE).
3- Accelerated atherosclerosis ¬ MI.
Differential diagnosis of SLE:
-RA.
-Scleroderma.
-Drug induced lupus.
-Rheumatic heart disease.
-Chronic active hepatitis.

Smart Rheumatology Qs by Dr. Fat'h Aldeen and then he swore when any
student answered them... He gave them almost a full mark 
SLE patient takes an anti-Malarial drug ¬ like HydroxyChloroQuine?
The function of this medication is to suppress the high level of ANA and RF.
Side effect: Increased skin pigmentation and deposit in retina ¬ and all these seen
only in high dose.
A patient came to Dr. Fat'h Al-deen, with symptoms similar to RA (joint pain), she
was diagnosed in Harvard as RA because she has High ANA and High sky RF.
So the doctor said “I don't trust Harvard University... I only trust in my knowledge
and trust excellent doctors" & told his patient that she doesn't have RA & gave her
anti-Malaria drug (hyrdoxyChloroQunine) because it suppresses for High ANA and
RF which then the symptoms subsides.
Then she was diagnosed to have parvovirus infection which causes symptoms
similar to RA & SLE.
How to differentiate that psychosis in SLE pt, whether it's
a side effect of cortisone or due to SLE it self?
¬ By test of Anti-Ribosomal B Abs ¬ If positive so it is due to SLE.
So in both situations we've to decrease steroid because of psychosis that's
worsening.
Anti-phospholipids' Syndrome:
Diagnosed by Having Low platelets and prolonged PTT and in the Hx they've
abortions and Migraine, TIA, stroke, amurosis fugax. And in examination they've
levido reticularis.

Causes of prolonged PTT:
Either ¬ coagulopathy or auto Abs like antiphospholipid $.
So to investigate anti-phospholipids' $ ¬ by three tests [ELISA]:
1- Lupus anticoagulant (its mechanism is very important) ¬ see below:
2- Anti-Cardiolipin.
3- Anti-Beta 2 glycoprotein 1 Abs (beta2GP1) ¬ very important for the
diagnosis.
50/50 fixed test for Lupus Anticoagulant:
Antiphospholipid pt. has prolonged PTT.
So, we take patient serum (50%) & mix it with serum from a normal person (50%).
If the result was corrected (PTT not prolonged), then the cause of prolongation is a
deficit in the blood itself (factor deficiency), not APLS. Because the defected blood
earned factors from the healthy blood.
If Prolongation of PTT is still the same ¬ not corrected ¬ Ag/Abs reaction
(autoimmune).
*In summary:
PTT:
-If corrected ¬ factor deficiency.
-If not corrected ¬ Ag/Abs.
Drug induced SLE:
-Usually by hydralazine – procainamide - IsoNiazid.
-They've Positive anti-Histone.
-Normal complements and ANA positive.
-Anti-ds DNA negative.

Methotrexate is hepatotoxic ¬ it's given once weekly.

INVESTIGATIONS:
All patients should have:
(1) CT scan or MRI ¬ for the diagnosis:
(Hemorrhage, infarction, space occupying lesion, demyelinating,
degenerative)
(2) Chest x-ray (CXR)¬ TB, HF, cardiomyopathy, tumors
(3) ECG* ¬ Lt. ventricular hypertrophy or Right. Ven. Hypertrophy, block
arrhythmia
(4) GLUCOUSE: random blood sugar ¬ DM
(5) CBC
- Leukocytosis (high WBC) ¬ infection (meningitis)
-  Hb ¬ Polycythemia
- Cytopenia ¬ CTD (SLE)
(6) Lipid profile* ¬ hyperlipidemia
(7) DOPLLER of the CAROTID **very important**
(9) ECHOCARDIOGRAM* ¬ all patients with stroke should have it
Valvular lesion, ejection fraction (dilated atria or ventricle )
Certain Investigations, only According to History & Examination.:
1- SCREEN FOR VASCULITIS: ANA, RF
2- THROMBOPHILIA screen ¬ potien S, C, antithrombin III, factor V
3- screening for malignancy
4- HIV

4) EMG
5) Nerve conduction study ¬ delay
STROKE MANAGEMENT:
In general:
- Physiotherapy
- CNC IX, X lesion ¬ NGT
- Incontinence ¬ catheter, diaper
[1] Hemorrhagic stroke:
- If CTS, MRI show: hemorrhage ¬then find the cause
(1) If it is due to Hypertension:
Look if there is a midline shift or no (in massive midline shift: consciousness
affected & respiratory distress)
MS ¬ diagnosed mainly by relapse & remission ¬ 2 attacks

If there is midline shift ¬ give manitol to decrease ICP
If no midline shift ¬ then decrease BP very slow, not below 180/100 because
it will causes decreased perfusion
Dextamethasone: would not work
Observe the patient: either:
1- Hemorrhage resolves on its own & patient improves
2- Bore hole & remove the hemorrhage if it is MASSIVE ÷ but usually not
needed
(2) If the cause of hemorrhagic stroke not known: then it is
¬ AV malformation / ruptured berry aneurysm
- call neurosurgeon to clip the aneurysm because it will re-bleed in 10 days
- Angiogram to be available before calling neurosurgeon to confirm which
artery
[2] Infarction type:
Treat according to the cause:
- In arrhythmias, VHD, AF ¬ anticoagulation
- If not any of these ¬ just put patient on aspirin & plavix
(Usually patient is DM, HTN, hyperlipidemia, smoker ¬ treat the
comorbiditiy)
[3] If demyelination: steroids + alpha interferon (α-IF)
in hemorrhagic stroke : high mortality, but if survives ¬ less
morbidity than ischemic
in ischemic stroke: less mortality but high morbidity
compared to hemorrhagic stroke

After a CT scan of the brain ¬Infarction or hemorrhage
¬ Space occupying lesion
If the CT scan is normal ¬ order a coagulation profile ¬ then ¬ L.P
**Remember...
If CT scan doesn’t show any infraction (blackish in brain CT)
¬ so there is no infraction.
But in a hemorrhagic case (whitish) sometimes it initially looks
normal ¬but repeat the scan after 12 h to make sure.

DVT
Session with Dr. Maimoona


Etiology of DVT:
Virchaw's triad
1-Abnormal blood flow
2-Abnormal constituents of blood (hypercoagulability)
3-Abnormal vessel wall
1- Abnormal blood flow
- Immobility* (due to traveling "the most important”, fracture,
paralysis, post operative, CVA, pregnancy)
- Heart failure*
- Compression by pregnancy or tumor
& economic class ﺔﯿﺣﺎﯿﺴﻟا ﺔﺟرﺪﻟا ( ) syndrome÷ DVT
Because vessels are kinked during the flight causing blood stasis.
*The most
important points
in order, you can
then mention the
others according
to order

- Dehydration due to any reason: (fever, diarrhea)
- Polycythemia
- SCA (sickling crisis)
2- Abnormal constituents
- Thrombophilia: is the deficiency of protein C & S, antithrombin III, factor V
(recurrent & positive FH)
- Nephrotic Syndrome ¬ loss of antithrombin III
- CLD (chronic liver disease) ¬ prot. C & S, Anti-Thrombin III
deficiency
- Polycythemia
- SCA
- Hypercoagulopathy
- OCP = oral contraceptive pills
- Antiphospholipid antibodies in APLS (in females ask about recurrent
abortion)
- Any malignancies: (prostatic, pancreatic, lymphomatic , leukemic )
- Para protienemia (multiple myloma)
- IBD is Inflammatory Bowel Disease: hypofibrogenemia
- Thrombocytopenic purpura
Never say "nephrotic syndrome & CLD are
causes of DVT" but "they are causes of protein
deficiency"
The most common malignancies causing
hypercoagulable state are:
- Prostate carcinoma
- Lung carcinoma
- Pancreas carcinoma

3-Abnormal vessel wall
- Vasculitis*: (SLE, RA, good pasture, HSP = henoch shonleinn purpra)
- Trauma* ¬ IV cannulation (either in hospital or in IV drug abusers)
- Varicose vein*
Complications of DVT:
-Acute: PE = pulmonary embolism:  the most important
Sudden onset chest pain (pleuritic) ¬ sharp and related to respiration
Associated with SOB, palpitations, hemoptysis, or syncope
- Chronic: post phelebitic limb >> stagnation of blood >> not return normally
to heart >> leg edema, ulceration, discoloration

6- D-dimer ¬ increase in thrombosis & PE, but NOT specific may increase in
pregnancy ,infection ,post operative
7- Works for thrombophilia
8- Ag-Ab profile
9- ESR & C - reactive protein
10- Protein electrophoresis ¬ multiple myeloma
Radiology:
11- Chest X-Ray (CXR): for pulmonary embolism(PE), pulmonary edema,
malignancy, etc

2- Wedge shaped infarction,
3- Oligemic lung ¬ decrease blood flow
12- Ultrasound (US) of pelvis & abdomen for compression:
Abdomen ¬ hepatosplenomegaly – enlarged LN
Pelvis ¬ tumor – pregnancy (maybe the patient doesn't know that she's
pregnant)
13- Pregnancy tests (due to increased hormones & compression)

PULMONARY ANGIOGRAPHY is the definitive test for pulmonary embolism
Supporting:
If the patient is < 45 ¬ protein C & S, APL Abs, antithrombin III
I the patient is > 45 ¬ chest X-Ray, ultrasound abdomen
In both do an ECG.
O/Ex.:
Vital, general
Hands:
C.T. disease, no ulcer, no active arthritis, rashes
Cyanosis (heart failure)
Pulse (tachycardia: Pulmonary Embolism, unequal pulse: Vasculitis)
Postural hypotension
Face:
Rashes, pallor, ulcer in mouth
Legs:
¬ Inspection:
- Swelling & determine the exact site
- Scar (IV, drug abuse)

- Redness
- Phlegmasia alba / white leg
- Phlegmasia dolens / milk leg
¬ Palpitations
- Temperature is down and up and compare both
- Tenderness
- Tense calf muscle
- Edema ( DVT = pitting , lymphoedema = non pitting ) & do it up & up to
see till where no more pitting edema e.g.: till the knee or the thigh
- Homan's signs = increasing resistance & pain on forced foot Dorsiflexion :
say it but DON'T do it ¬ dislodge thrombus
- Pulse : vasculitis unequal , if absent: why? Because edema compresses the
artery.

INR ÷ used usually
Patient control
2.5 1
5 ¬ decrease dose
1 ¬ increase dose
- ONCE warfarin 2–2 1/2 ¬ Stop heparin
If the patient takes an OVER DOSE:
- heparin t1/2 = 30 min – 1 hour
If over dose and bleed:
stop heparin
If the patient is bleeding can use FFP=fresh frozen plasma,
or antidote= protamine sulfate ÷ but it is not given to the patient.
- Warfarin t1/2 = 72 hr = 3 days
we measure it 3 days after start ttt
if over dose:
1- Antidote
2- Vitamin K
3- Stop warfarin
if bleeding occurs then FFP
PE & DVT
Whatever there is PE or not ¬ ttt will continue for 6 months If the cause
known
- If the cause is hereditary cause ¬ ttt life long
- If the cause is malignancy ¬ life long
