The objective of this study is to report a case of acute arterial occlusion of lower limbs as a consequence of the use of ergotamine tartrate, an infrequent condition, so that it can be diagnosed and treated as efficiently and early as possible.
Leung M, Ong M. How to cite this article. Sin embargo, no parecen ser necesarios reajustes en etgotamina dosis. Prostaglandins, ergot, alkaloids and other drugs. Acute arterial occlusion caused by ergotamine derivatives.
The main pharmacological effects of ergotamine are: After drugs were suspended and anticoagulants, vasodilators and antiplatelet drugs were prescribed, the patient progressed with improvement of pain, paresthesia and return of normal skin color and distal pulses in lower limbs.
By that time, strange epidemics with the characteristic symptom of limb gangrene were reported. Arteriographic findings consist of arterial spasm, collateral network and in situ thrombosis. Edison Barreto de Souza Av.
Spasm is more frequently found in the peripheral arterial system, lower limbs are more affected than upper limbs and the induced vasospasm is usually bilateral, symmetrical. No conflicts of interest declared concerning the publication of this article. Services on Demand Journal.
Ergotamine derivatives include several drugs widely used in the treatment of acute migraine attacks. Introduction During the Middle Ages the first descriptions of intoxication caused by ergotamine derivatives were made. The first and most important step in the treatment is to discontinue the causing agent; however, vasodilating therapy is fundamental for the improvement of the patient’s clinical status. She underwent arteriography, which showed both lower limbs with: Rua Estela,bloco E, conj.
A double-blind study of subcutaneous dihydroergotamine vs subcutaneous sumatriptan in the treatment of acute migraine. Si a las 2 horas no se ha obtenido una respuesta satisfactoria, puede administrarse una segunda dosis de mg.
Despite the multiple symptoms of ergotism, peripheral ischemia secondary to vasospasm is the most frequent and it affects 0. On the one hand, ergotamine derivatives may damage the vascular endothelium by inducing the proliferation of arterial muscle cells due to stimulation of the platelet-derived growth factor and, on the other hand, they cause thrombosis and necrosis of the tunica media; these are symptoms associated with poisoning by ergotamine.
The diagnosis of ischemia induced by ergotamine derivatives is based on the patient’s clinical history, physical examination and on angiographic aspects. En muchos casos, la dosis de mg no ocasiona mejores resultados que la dosis de 25 mg.
There was no previous history of smoking, heart disease or intermittent claudication, but the patient reported a history of migraine with chronic use of ergotamine tartrate. Early diagnosis and treatment are fundamental in order to avoid severe and potentially fatal complications.
Discussion The diagnosis of ischemia induced by ergotamine derivatives is based on the patient’s clinical history, physical examination and on angiographic aspects. Ergotism unresponsive to multiple therapeutic modalities, including sodium nitroprusside, resulting in limb loss. Ergot is produced by a fungus Claviceps purpurea that grows on rye and other cereal plants. Ischemic colitis and sumatriptan use.
During the Middle Ages the first descriptions of intoxication caused by ergotamine derivatives were made.

Ergotism, ergotamine, ischemia, arterial insufficiency, pof occlusion. Ingoxicacion Intern Med ; Treatment options include anticoagulants such as heparin, oral vasodilators, platelet antiaggregants, anesthetic blocks, calcium channel blockers, hyperbaric oxygen, as well as intravascular volume expansion.
Iatrogenic arterial aneurysm associated with ergotamine therapy. The patient progressed with improvement of pain and upper and lower limb paresthesia, return of normal skin color and of distal pulses in the lower limbs; she was discharged on the sixth hospital day.
SUMATRIPTAN EN VADEMECUM
In recent publications, percutaneous angioplasty has been reported as an adjuvant treatment for arterial spasm; however, due to the risk of ergotmina to the intimal layer of the vessels, consequently causing thrombosis, it should be avoided whenever possible. The authors report the case of a year old patient with acute arterial occlusion in lower limbs secondary to the use of ergotamine derivatives. Pregnancy outcomes following first trimester exposure to sumatriptan.
Efficacy of subcutaneous sumatriptan in repeated episodes of migraine. Differential diagnosis is necessary, intoxicacioon occlusive atherosclerotic disease, thromboembolic disease, arteritides, fibromuscular dysplasia and the Raynaud’s phenomenon all have vasospastic symptoms similar to those of ergotism. When arterial spasm is observed, especially if it is bilateral and symmetrical, intoxication by ergotamine should be suspected.
Despite the fact that acute arterial occlusion caused by ergotamine derivative is a rare clinical condition, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of ischemic syndromes, especially in young patients without cardiovascular risk factor, or of severe arterial embolism.
