People with psoriasis are more likely to suffer from strokes

People with psoriasis are more likely to suffer from strokes

found that people diagnosed with psoriasis are almost three times more likely to have a stroke and have abnormal heart rhythms than those who do not. The study looked at records of 4.5 million people diagnosed with psoriasis, with 36,765 having mild disease and 2,793 under severe conditions. The results showed that patients with less than 50 years diagnosed with mild psoriasis were 50% more likely to suffer from cardiac arrhythmia and 97% more likely to have a stroke. Those with severe psoriasis were 198% more likely to have cardiac arrhythmias and 180% more likely to have a stroke. The risks in people over 50 were far less significant. According to the scientists, a possible cause for the alarming numbers would be the fact that inflammations of skin and blood vessels have similar sources of origin. of the skin are replaced every three or four weeks, but in people with psoriasis, the process occurs much more quickly. Replacement in patients with the disease occurs between two and six days, which makes the skin reddish, stained and full of peels.

Stress crises trigger psoriasis

Stains all over the body, uncomfortable and itchy. Psoriasis does not only impair the appearance of the skin, but also undermines self-esteem when symptoms arise and many people move away, for fear of becoming contaminated. Even without a cure, the disease spreads rapidly throughout the body, especially in stressful situations.

For diagnosis, doctors ask for a skin biopsy. The family history investigation also counts, since most cases have a genetic origin.

There are cases of psoriasis known as severe that lead to joint deformities. That is why treatment is essential. Cortisone creams help fight stains, but other methods are indicated, such as ultraviolet or sunbathing. Immunosuppressive medicines and vitamin A derivatives, known as retinoids - of the same species as those treating acne - also control the problem.

Ligation: tubal ligation surgery

Ligation: tubal ligation surgery

Ligation is the interruption of the fallopian tubes for definitive contraception. In the fallopian tubes, the ovum meets the spermatozoa (fertilization). The obstruction of this canal prevents fertilization or fertilization, making it impossible for the woman to become pregnant through this route. Currently, there is a "tube stent" (similar to a spring) that is placed by ambulatory hysteroscopy, without anesthesia with the same function of obstructing the tube.
