It is the prevailing view that the autonomic response to elevated ICP plays an important role in the pathogenesis of NPE.

Neurogenic pulmonary edema

The abrupt increase in ICP leading to neuronal compression, ischemia or damage is believed to give rise to an intense activation of the sympathetic neurogenick system and the release of catecholamines [ 221 ].

Unlike the direct toxic effects to the myocardium as detailed above, the ‘neuro-hemodynamic’ theory posits that ventricular compliance is indirectly altered neuroogenico the abrupt increases in systemic and pulmonary pressures following CNS injury.

When the same degree of pulmonary hypertension and increased left atrial pressure was induced with a left atrial balloon in the control group, pulmonary edema did not develop. The increased pressure extends into the left atrium and then to the pulmonary veins, causing fluid to accumulate in your lungs.


Neurogenic pulmonary edema

However, what occurs mechanistically at the neurkgenico of the pulmonary vascular endothelium remains enigmatic and theoretical. Lowering pulmonary blood volume by phlebotomy prevented aconitine induced NPE [ 51 ]. Rubin LJ, et al. Prevenir las enfermedades y las situaciones que causan el edema pulmonar puede ayudar a evitar que se desarrolle. Chest radiograph will reveal bilateral hyperdense infiltrates consistent with acute pulmonag distress syndrome Oulmonar [ 5 ].

Respiratory insufficiency in combat casualties: Similarly, myocardial lesions have been shown in patients with pheochromocytoma, supporting the role of catecholamine surge in the pathogenesis of stunned myocardium [ 34 ]. Similar reports exist of observed alveolar edema and hemorrhage in the lungs of 17 soldiers dying after isolated bullet head wounds in the Vietnam War [ 1 ].

Innervation of the pulmonary circulation: Vagotomy did not prevent NPE [ 18 ]. In order to explain the presence of both hydrostatic factors and vascular leak, Theodore and Robin introduced the “blast theory” of NPE [ 39 jeurogenico.

In mitral valve disease or aortic valve disease, the valves that regulate blood flow in the left side of your heart may not open wide enough stenosis.

Neurogenic pulmonary edema due to pulomnar brain injury: Blast theory The neuro-cardiac and neuro-hemodynamic theories outlined above both suggest that alterations in hydrostatic and Starling forces are central to the formation of pulmonary edema following CNS injury. Several other animal models have documented large elevations in left atrial, systemic and pulmonary pressures associated with NPE [ 182236 ].

Neurohemodynamics of pulmonary edema. In the original studies by Sarnoff and Sarnoff, substantial increases in aortic and pulmonary pressures were observed following the injection of thrombin into the intracisterna magna of dogs and rabbits [ 35 ].


The authors concluded that neurologic insult resulted in acute lung injury ALIwhich could not be explained by hemodynamic changes, but edemq by direct neurological influences on the pulmonary endothelium [ 44 ]. Prevented pulmonary edema after induced injury to anterior hypothalamus [ 23 ]. While all cases of NPE follow a CNS event and likely originate from sympathetic activation, downstream effects on the cardiopulmonary system vary.

Pulmonary edema after resection of a fourth ventricle tumor: On the other hand, if the mitral valve leaks, some blood is backwashed toward your lung each time your heart pumps. Finally, NPE was shown to develop after lesions were induced in the hypothalamus of laboratory animals [ 28 ]. Since this original report, several cases of cardiac injury associated with pulmonary edema following a CNS event have been described. Treatment efforts to reduce ICP, including decompression and clot evacuation, osmotic diuretics, anti-epileptics, tumor resection, and steroids have all been associated with improvements in oxygenation [ 31628 ].
