capable of invasion and spread to surrounding or more distant sites.
Non invasive and not spreading to other sites.
Characteristics of Malignant
the tumor cells grow rapidly. they are invasive and infiltrative, they are composed of cancerous cells that resemble primitive cells and lack capacity to preform mature cell function. aplasia and undifferentiated also Metastatic
the characteristics of Malignant tumors are called
Characteristics of Benign Tumors
Grow slowly, they are noninvasive and Encapsulated(contained with fibrous capsule or cover)Composed of organied and specialized well (differentiated) cells. also do not spread or metastasize(nonmetastatic)
organized and specialized
Lacking microscopic structures typical of normal mature cells
malignant tumors...the largest group of solid tumors that are derived from epithelial tissue that lines eternal and internal body surfaces including skin, glands, and digestive, urinary, and reproductive organs
Malignant tumors but less are less common that carcinomas. they derive from connective tissues in the body, such as bone, fat, muscle, cartilage, and bone marrow, and cells from the lymphatic system.
Malignant tumors that are derived from tissue that is capable of differentiating into both epithelial and connective tissue some are found in kidneys, ovaries, and testes
used to measure blood pressure
electrical impulses that move randomly throughout the atrial
VF =Ventricular Fibrillation
Electrical impulses that move randomly throughout the atrial
COA=coarctation of the aorta
localized narrowing of the aorta reduced the supply of blood to the lower part of the body
PDA= Patent ductus arteriosus
when the ductus arteriosus fails to close after birth and blood from the aorta flows through it into the pulmonary artery.
VSD=Ventricle septal defect
when a hole in the ventricle septum causes blood to flow from the left ventricle to the right ventricles and into the lings via pulmonary artery
tetralogy of fallot
four distinct heart defects which are 1.Pulmonary artery, 2,Ventricular septal defect, 3,Shift of the aorta to the right, and 4,hypertrophy of the right ventricle
CHF= /congestive heart failure
Heat is unable to pump its required amount of blood.
CAD= coronary artery disease
disease of the arteries surrounding the heart
deposition of fatty compounds on the inner lining of the coronary arteries
blocking of the coronary artery by clot...blood flow is decreased
ACSs= Acute coronary syndromes
conditions caused by myocardial ischemia. these conditions are unstable angina, and myocardial infraction
chest pain at rest or chest pain of increasing frequency
MI= Myocardial infarction
a well-demarcated pale yellow lesion in the posterolateral region of the left ventricle. the border of the infract is surrounded a dark red zone of acute inflammation.
Inflammation of the inner lining of the heart
hypertensive heart disease
high blood pressure affecting the heart
MVP=Mitral valve prolapse
improper closure of the mitral valve.
Extra heart sound, heard between normal beats
inflammation of the membrane (pericardium) surrounding the heart.
Rheumatic Heart disease
Heart disease caused by rheumatic fever
DVT deep vein thrombosis
Blood vein forms in a large vein. usually in a lower limb
High blood pressure
PAD Peripheral arterial disease
Blockage of arteries carrying blood to the legs, arms, kidneys and other organs
Recurrent episodes of pallor and cyanosis primarily in fingers and toes
abnormally swollwn and twisted veins, usually in the legs
