There were 45 cases of death related with plastic surgery that offered few data for individualization. Of these patients, 44 were women. Possible causes mentioned were pulmonary embolism five cases , perforation of viscera four cases , malignant hyperthermia three cases , anesthesia two cases , anaphylactic shock two cases , fat embolism one confirmed case , and "other" five cases. CONCLUSION: Guidelines to prevent fat embolism in plastic surgery are needed, however, there is also the need of more evidence based studies to understand more clearly what methods are best. Desses pacientes, 44 eram mulheres.

Viajes largos. Otros factores de riesgo Tabaquismo. Tener sobrepeso. In addition, some medical conditions and treatments put you at risk, such as: Heart disease. Cardiovascular disease, specifically heart failure, makes clot formation more likely. Certain cancers — especially brain, ovary, pancreas, colon, stomach, lung and kidney cancers, and cancers that have spread — can increase the risk of blood clots, and chemotherapy further increases the risk.

Women with a personal or family history of breast cancer who are taking tamoxifen or raloxifene also are at higher risk of blood clots. Surgery is one of the leading causes of problem blood clots. For this reason, medication to prevent clots may be given before and after major surgery, such as joint replacement. Disorders that affect clotting. Some inherited disorders affect blood, making it more prone to clot. Other medical disorders such as kidney disease can also increase your risk of blood clots.

Prolonged immobility Blood clots are more likely to form during periods of inactivity, such as: Bed rest. Being confined to bed for an extended period after surgery, a heart attack, leg fracture, trauma or any serious illness makes you more vulnerable to blood clots. When the lower extremities are horizontal for long periods, the flow of venous blood slows and blood can pool in the legs, sometimes resulting in blood clots.

Long trips. Sitting in a cramped position during lengthy plane or car trips slows blood flow in the legs, which contributes to the formation of clots. Other risk factors Smoking. Being overweight. Excess weight increases the risk of blood clots — particularly in people with other risk factors. Supplemental estrogen. The estrogen in birth control pills and in hormone replacement therapy can increase clotting factors in your blood, especially if you smoke or are overweight. The weight of the baby pressing on veins in the pelvis can slow blood return from the legs.

Clots are more likely to form when blood slows or pools. Complicaciones La embolia pulmonar puede ser mortal. Alrededor de un tercio de las personas con embolia pulmonar no diagnosticada y no tratada no sobreviven. Estas son algunas medidas: Anticoagulantes. Piernas en alto. Descansar de estar sentado.

Haz algunas flexiones profundas con las rodillas. Moverte en el asiento. Prevention while traveling The risk of blood clots developing while traveling is low, but increases as long-haul travel increases.

Your doctor might suggest the following to help prevent blood clots during travel: Drink plenty of fluids. Water is the best liquid for preventing dehydration, which can contribute to the development of blood clots. Avoid alcohol, which contributes to fluid loss. Take a break from sitting. Move around the airplane cabin once an hour or so. Do a few deep knee bends. Fidget in your seat. Flex your ankles every 15 to 30 minutes. Wear support stockings. Your doctor may recommend these to help promote circulation and fluid movement in your legs.

Compression stockings are available in a range of stylish colors and textures. There are even devices, called stocking butlers, to help you put on the stockings.
