Bleeding Varices


Bleeding varices are actually caused by a liver disease called portal hypertension. Here, a scarred or cirrhotic liver can no
longer filter blood. As a result, the blood develops a bypass around the liver in form of varicose veins near the junction
between the stomach and the esophagus.

The blood pressure in the varicose vein is great, thus causing the vein to become distended. Sometimes, it is so great
that the vein can rupture and bleed profusely.

Pulmonary emphysema:
The air sacs (alveoli) of the lungs are enlarged and damaged, which reduces the surface area for the exchange of oxygen

produced by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, myofascial pain syndrome is characterized by burning, aching and

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common demyelinating disease afflicting humans. It is a chronic disease affecting
more women than men often leading to progressive neurological deterioration and ataxic paraplegia. MS has cycles of
remission and relapses with remission occurring less frequently as the disease progresses. Lesions occur in all parts of
the CNS white matter appearing gray and translucent. Some of the more prominent structures affected are the medial
longitudinal fasciculus and the optic tract and chiasm. Damage to the neurons in these structures can lead to optic
neuritis (with complete loss of vision in one eye), diplopia (double vision) and problems coordinating eye and head
movements. Onset of the disease is usually between the ages of 20 and 40 years of age.

Huntington Disease

This is an autosomally-inherited, dominant disorder in which the patient begins to exhibit symptoms in the third to
fourth decades. Patients with Huntington Disease (HD) initially have a tendency to fidget which over months or years
develops into jerky, choreiform movements. HD usually progresses over a 10 to 25 year period. As the disease
progresses it leads to dementia and usually death from incurrent infection. There is a high incidence of suicide among
