bicuspid aortic stenosis

they get damaged because two are doing the work of three and DYSTROPHIC CALCIFICATION OCCURS

calcium enters the cell (becasue pump is shut down to keep it out)

inc. in mitochondrial permeability w/ the release of CYTOCHROME C - ACTIVATES APOPTOSIS
what is the most common cause of fatty change to the liver (cytosolic accumulation of TG's)?

What is the mechanism

Increase NADH in the cell during the metabolism of the alcohol, accelerates the conversion of DHAP to glycerol 3-phosphate which is the substrate for TG formation
How do the vinka alkaloids and colchicine interfere w/ the cell cycle
They bind to tubulin in microtubles preventing the assembly into mitotic spindles
How do acetaminophen and aspirin do to your
free radicals destroy the renal medulla (destroying renal tubules)

allowing angiotensin II to control blood flow to the kidney
What are two important causes of hyprphosphatemia
renal failure (thats why they need dialysis)

What happens if you block the hepatic vein what happnes?

What happens to the liver if you block the portal vein?

What enzyme is elevted in actue pancreatitis?

What is the underlying cause

LIPASE AS WELL, IT IS MORE SPECIFIC, it is activated by alcohol

This is the same area that is effected in acetaminophen toxicity because it combat oxygen free radicals w/ low levles of oxygen
CENTRAL VEIN (ZONE 3) you will see fatty change
What happens if you ↑ Alveolar PCO2 ?
= ↓ alveolar PO2 = ↓ PaO2 = ↓ SaO2
/ 85
