  • Purpose: To provide Diagnostic Criteria and Severity Evaluation Criteria of postpartum edema mainly complained by women directly after delivery. Methods: We analyzed Edema Index(ECF/TBW) analyzed by Body Composition Analyzer(InBody720) of 103 women directly after delivery who were delivered in Ob & Gy of Dongguk University Ilsan Hospital. Results: Mean value for Edema Index of 103 participants was 0.3527$\pm$0.0102, Minimum was 0.336, Maximum 0.388. From this Mean value and Edema Index distribution of participants, We suggest that we can diagnose more than 0.35 of Edema Index as Postpartum Edema, more than 0.35 and less than 0.36 as postpartum edema grade 1, more than 0.36 and less than 0.37 as grade 2, more than 0.37 as grade 3. Conclusion: This research is the first step for diagnostic criteria of postpartum edema, we suggest that diagnostic criteria of postpartum edema is more than 0.35 of Edema Index score. But this suggestion must be revaluated by additional research.

  • Objectives : In traditional Korean medicine literature, Succium(琥珀) is known to be effective in eliminating edema. However, pumpkins are misused in folk remedies to manage edema, because succium and pumpkin is homophony to 'Hobak' in Korean. The purpose of this study is to report the effects of Succium decoction on two patients with edema after plastic surgery. Methods : We treated two patients with edema after plastic surgery using Succium decoction. Numeric rating scale (NRS) of edema, photograph of changes in edema before and after treatment were analyzed to evaluate the effects of treatment. Results : After 2 weeks of administration, NRS for facial edema decreased from 5 to 3 and 2 to 1, respectively. Photograph of edema decreased after treatment, and there were no adverse events. Conclusions : This case report suggests that Succium decoction can be effective in treating edema after plastic surgery.

  • Objective: The primary objective of this study was to perform a retrospective evaluation of the radiological and pathological features influencing the formation of peritumoral brain edema (PTBE) in meningiomas. Methods: The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and pathology data for 86 patients with meningiomas, who underwent surgery at our institution between September 2003 and March 2009, were examined. We evaluated predictive factors related to peritumoral edema including gender, tumor volume, shape of tumor margin, presence of arachnoid plane, the signal intensity (SI) of the tumor in T2-weighted image (T2WI), the WHO histological classification (GI, GII/GIII) and the Ki-67 antigen labeling index (LI). The edema-tumor volume ratio was calculated as the edema index (EI) and was used to evaluate peritumoral edema. Results: Gender (p=0.809) and pathological finding (p=0.084) were not statistically significantly associated with peritumoral edema by univariate analysis. Tumor volume was not correlated with the volume of peritumoral edema. By univariate analysis, three radiological features, and one pathological finding, were associated with PTBE of statistical significance: shape of tumor margin (p=0.001), presence of arachnoid plane (p=0.001), high SI of tumor in T2WI (p=0.001), and Ki-67 antigen LI (p=0.049). These results suggest that irregular tumor margins, hyperintensity in T2WI, absence of arachnoid plane on the MRI, and high Ki-67 LI can be important predictive factors that influence the formation of peritumoral edema in meningiomas. By multivariate analysis, only SI of the tumor in T2WI was statistically significantly associated with peritumoral edema. Conclusion: Results of this study indicate that irregular tumor margin, hyperintensity in T2WI, absence of arachnoid plane on the MRI, and high Ki-67 LI may be important predictive factors influencing the formation of peritumoral edema in meningiomas.

  • Brain edema is a major importance in the pathophysiology of CNS injuries including stroke. Ischemic brain edema results from both cytotoxic edema, which is severe in astrocytes at early stage, and vasogenic edema caused by excessive blood-brain barrier (BBB) permeability. The present study was performed to determine the effect of Rhei Rhizoma on brain edema induced by middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) in the rats. The neurological symptom, total infarct volume and edema index caused by MCAO were measured. The changes of Matrix Metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) immunoreactivities were also observed. We found that Rhei Rhizoma extract improved the neurological symptom and attenuated the total infarct volume and brain edema caused by ischemic insult. Rhei Rhizoma extract also attenuated the expression of MMP-9 and iNOS. This results suggest that Rhei Rhizoma has a protective effect on the brain edema caused by ischemic insult.

  • Re-expansion pulmonary edema following pneumothorax or hemothorax is clinically uncommon but occasionally life threatening. Clinical details are given of two patients.Ipsilateral pulmonary edema were developed after chest tube insertion due to spontaneous pneumothorax in case I and after evacuation of postoperative hemothorax in case II. The patients were treated with frequent bronchial toilet.The administration of colloid solution and diuretics was effective. The possible mechanisms underlying the edema are discussed.Both increased time of collapse and suction tended to correlate with reexpansion edema.The present two cases provided evidence for longstanding lung collapse and immediate application of suction.

  • Reexpansion pulmonary edema following pneumothorax, atelectasis, massive pleural effusion are clinically uncommon, but sometimes life threatening progression. Reexpansion pulmonary edema is usually ipsilateral but rarely contralateral or both. Reexpansion pulmonary edema was occurred when chronically collapsed lung is rapidly reexpanded by evacuation of large amounts of air or fluid. The pathogenesis of the reexpansion pulmonary edema is unknown but is probably mutifactorial. The etiological factors of the reexpansion pulmonary edema are chronicity of the lung collapse, technique of the reexpansion, airway obstruction, loss of the surfactant, and pulmonary artery pressure changes. In the treatment of the chronically collapsed lung, physician must be remembered the possible events, and to prevent of the complication.

  • Purpose: This study was performed to find correlations between Edema Index and Heart Rate Variability(HRV) conducted in early postpartum period. Methods: 17 postpartum women were participated in this study which was conducted with Inbody 720(Biospace Co. Ltd.) and SA-6000(Medicore Co. Ltd.). Edema Index(Extra Cellular Water/Total Body Water) was calculated after body composition analysis and HRV result(TP, VLF, LF, HF, HF norm, LF norm, LF/HF ratio) was analysed within a week after delivery. Results: There was no significant correlations between Edema Index and HRV results in time domain analysis. also Edema Index and TP, LF, HF, LF/HF ratio have no significant correlations in frequency domain analysis. but only VLF data has significance compared with Edema Index. Conclusions: It can be suggested that VLF results analysed by HRV can be useful reference estimating postpartum edema especially occurs in early postpartum period.

  • Objective: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the radiological charactersitics related to the formation of peritumoral edema in meningiomas. Methods: Fifty patients with meningioma were examined by magnetic resonance images and cerebral angiography. The predictive factors associated peritumoral edema, such as, tumor size, peritumoral rim (cerebrospinal fluid cleft), shape of tumor margin, signal intensity of tumor in T2WI, and pial blood supply were evaluated. Results: Tumor size, peritumoral rim and pial blood supply correlated with peritumoral edema on univariate analyses. But in multivariate analyses, pial blood supply was statistically significant as a factor for peritumoral edema in meningioma. Conclusion: In our results, pial blood supply is significant contributing factor for peritumoral edema in meningioma.

  • A 6 month-old castrated male Yorkshire terrier (weighing 1.0 kg) was presented with acute respiratory distress. Diagnostic imaging studies found post-obstructive pulmonary edema sequel to upper airway obstruction by a rubber plug lodged at thoracic esophagus. The rubber plug was removed endoscopically. After removal of this rubber plug with conventional therapy for pulmonary edema, the clinical condition of dog was stabilized. To the best knowledge of authors, this is the first case report describing postobstructive pulmonary edema in a dog in Korea.
