Edema of cardiac, renal or hepatic origin

Edema is swelling due to the abnormal presence of fluid in the tissues of the body. It is a disease that usually starts slowly, but its onset can also be abrupt in some cases. Edema can be a sign of a serious illness. Its causes include certain medications, allergies, diseases, etc. (1)

  • Although edema may be due to many primitive causes, its general mechanism is the intratisular accumulation of fluids (1).
  • Some possible causes of edema:
    • heart failure
    • Hepatic impairment
    • Cirrhosis
    • Kidney disease or kidney damage. Damage to the glomeruli can lead to nephrotic syndrome. Glomeruli are renal capillaries that filter waste and excess fluid in the blood.
