Can PKD Cause Vessels to Blood Rupture Leading to Death

2015-02-27 08:12

Can PKD Cause Vessels to Blood Rupture Leading to DeathAs we all know, Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a genetic kidney disease characterized by fluid-filled cysts. With time going, cysts grow bigger and bigger. Can PKD cause blood vessels to rupture leading to death?

PKD may cause blood vessels to rupture.

The reason why cysts keep growing is that renal tubule epithelial cells proliferate so as to form sacs and then lining cells secrete fluid. In cyst wall, there are many blood vessels. When the cysts rupture, vessels break. As a result, blood in the vessel come out of the body, causing blood urine. Besides, the enlarged cysts compress the around blood vessels, leading to high blood pressure. Hypertention may make blood vessel rupture easily. In serious cases, it may contribute to sepsis and hemorrhage so that you may have fever, low blood pressure, low pulse rate, failure of organ, low urine output and some other symptoms. Without proper treatment, it becomes fatal.

How to prevent blood vessels from rupture for PKD patients?

-Avoid collision to the kidneys

When kidney cysts are very big, you should protect your waist very well to avoid collision, because any pressure to cysts may lead to their rupture.

-Shrink kidney cysts

Current treatment for PKD is just to control symptoms rather than shrink kidney cysts. It is not enough if you want to lead a normal life with PKD. After years of research and clinical practice, our doctors develop a series of therapies for PKD, one of which is Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy can inhibit the proliferation of epithelial cells and secretion of lining cells to stop the growth of cysts. It can also increase the permeability of cyst wall, speed up blood circulation in cyst wall, increase the pressure difference between cyst wall so that fluid can be taken away from sacs. And then kidney cysts become small.

Can PKD cause vessels to rupture leading to death? Yes, it may lead to death. Therefore, early treatment is needed to shrink kidney cysts. If you would like a personalized treatment plan, please leave your basic information below. Our doctor will reply you after analyzing your case.
