A term formerly restricted to mortification of the soft tissues which has not advanced so far as to produce complete loss of vitality; but now applied to mortification of the soft parts in any stage.
(gas gangrene) The infection of dead tissue causing, in the case of gas gangrene, foul smelling gas
The death of tissue caused by a very poor blood supply, as sometimes occurs in the feet and legs of persons with diabetes. Infection may be a contributing cause.
Death of tissue caused by loss of blood flow and usually followed by infection
Anaerobic infection of the musculature.
Death of part of tissue resulting from disease, injury, or failure of blood supply.
Decay of a part of the body due to insufficient blood supply
a death of body tissue that usually occurs when there has been an interruption of blood supply, followed by bacterial invasion.
The death of body tissues, usually due to a lack of blood supply, especially in the legs and feet.
Tissue death caused by lack of blood flow. Most often, it is caused by such certain bacterial infections as Clostridium perfringens, which produces gas gangrene that release gas into the dying tissues by bacterial metabolism.
Death and decay of part of the body due to deficiency or cessation of blood supply.
Dead tissue. Develops when a wound becomes infected or tissue is destroyed by an accident.
a condition in which tissue dies due to a loss of blood supply.
death of tissue leading to it's rotting. A frequent complication of frostbite (as from liquid helium or liquid nitrogen)
necrotic tissue; a mortified or gangrenous part or mass
the localized death of living cells (as from infection or the interruption of blood supply)
undergo necrosis; "the tissue around the wound necrosed"
Death of tissue due to lack of adequate circulation.
death of tissue generally associated with loss of blood supply, injury, or disease.
Combination of necrosis (usually ischemic) and bacterial invasion causing putrefaction.
Tissue death caused by poor blood flow. It is usually black with color, often with a foul odor.
Death or decay of tissue in a part of the body---usually a limb.
Death and decay of body tissue, often in a limb, caused by insufficient blood supply and usually following injury or disease. ? Copper 1 tsp. ? Silver Orally-2 TBL am and pm ? ]Topically-may be applied to affected area several times daily. ? Zinc-2 TBL ? Drink 50-80 ounces of ozonated water per day. ? Ozone machine therapy: Place limb in an airtight bag. Connect hose from ozone machine to bag. Secure bag opening around limb to trap ozone inside. Cover limb with blanket and run ozone for 4 hours daily until circulation begins to return (black color starts to recede). Then reduce the time to 1 hour twice daily till recovered. ? Stabilized Oxygen-as directed.
Tissue death caused by inadequate blood flow.
Necrosis or tissue death, usually due to inadequate or absent blood supply.
The death of body tissue. It is most often caused by a loss of blood flow, especially in the legs and feet.
death of body tissue usually caused by lack of blood supply
Gangrene is the death or decay of a part of your body, while it is still attached to the rest of you. It is usually caused by a failure of the blood supply to that particular area of your body. In extreme situations gangrene infected parts of the body have to be amputated to stop the infection from spreading.
Death and decay of tissue, usually owing to the loss of blood supply and subsequent invasion by bacteria.
is the death of body tissues usually due to loss of blood supply to the affected area, followed by bacterial invasion.
Death of tissue , usually in considerable mass and generally associated with loss of vascular ( nutritive ) supply and followed by bacterial invasion and putrefaction .
death of a tissue because of a lack of blood supply
Lack of oxygen leading to the death of tissue
Death of tissue, usually due to loss of blood supply.
rotting of tissue usually caused by interruption of blood supply
The death of body tissue due to the loss of blood supply to that tissue, sometimes permitting bacteria to invade it and accelerate its decay.
tissue death caused by impair blood supply (ischemia)
necrosis (decay)of tissue due to ischemia, bacterial invasion, and subsequent putrefaction.
The decay of body tissue in a part of the body where the blood supply is obstructed by injury or disease.
Gangrene is necrosis and subsequent decay of body tissues caused by infection or thrombosis or lack of blood flow. It is usually the result of critically insufficient blood supply sometimes caused by injury and subsequent contamination with bacteria. This condition is most common in the extremities.
