NECROSIS  Definition  Necrosis is defined as focal death and autolysis of a tissue

 Invariably accompanied by inflammatory reaction

www.indiandentalacademy.com


NECROSIS  Causes  Hypoxia  Chemical and physical agents  Microbial agents  Immunological injury www.indiandentalacademy.com


NECROSIS  Essential changes  Cell digestion by lytic enzymes  Denaturation of proteins

www.indiandentalacademy.com


NECROSIS  Morphologically – characteristic cytoplasmic and nuclear changes  Cytoplasm – homogenous and intensely eosinophilic  Nuclear Changes  Pyknosis- condensation of nuclear chromatin  Karyolysis – dissolution of nucleus  Karyorrhexis - fragmentation into many granular clumps www.indiandentalacademy.com

COAGULATIVE NECROSIS  Microscopically,  Tombstones – hallmark feature  Outlines of the cells are retained – cell type can recognized  Cytoplasmic and nuclear details are lost

 Necrosed cells – swollen & more eosinophilic www.indiandentalacademy.com


COAGULATIVE NECROSIS  Probable cause for the microscopic change  Denaturation of structural and enzymatic proteins

 No cell digestion and liquefaction  Necrotic focus is infiltrated by inflammatory cells and the dead cells are phagocytosed leaving granular debris and fragments of cells www.indiandentalacademy.com

FAT NECROSIS  In pancreas  Liberation of pancreatic lipase from injured or inflammed tissue  Results in necrosis of pancreas as well as of the fat depots throughout the peritoneal cavity  Sometimes, even affecting the extra-abdominal adipose tissue www.indiandentalacademy.com


FAT NECROSIS  Damaged adipose cells - cloudy appearance  Only free fatty acids remains after glycerol leaks out  Free fatty acid – complex with calcium to form calcium soaps (saponification) www.indiandentalacademy.com


FAT NECROSIS  Grossly,  Yellowish white and firm deposits  Formation of calcium soaps imparts the necrosed foci firmer and chalky white appearance

www.indiandentalacademy.com


FAT NECROSIS  Microscopically,  Fat cells have cloudy appearance  Surrounded by an inflammatory reaction  Calcium soaps – amorphous, granular and basophilic material www.indiandentalacademy.com

gangrene

www.indiandentalacademy.com


GANGRENE  It is a form of necrosis of tissue with superadded putrefaction  Necrosis is usually coagulative  Due to ischemia  Gangrene of bowel, gangrene of limbs

 Due to infection  Acute appendicitis

Coagualtive necrosis undergoes liquefaction by the action of putrefying bacteria www.indiandentalacademy.com


DRY GANGRENE  Caused by a reduction of blood flow through the arteries.  It appears gradually and progresses slowly  In most people, the affected part does not become infected.  In this type of gangrene, the tissue becomes cold and black, begins to dry, and eventually sloughs off. www.indiandentalacademy.com


DRY GANGRENE  Dry gangrene is commonly seen in people  with blockage of arteries (arteriosclerosis) resulting from increased cholesterol levels,  Buerger’s disease –thromboangiitis obliterans  Raynaud’s disease  trauma  Ergot poisoning www.indiandentalacademy.com


DRY GANGRENE  Line of separation – gangrenous part and viable part  Initiated in one of the of the toes - farthest from blood supply that even bacteria find it difficult to grow in the necrosed tissue.  Slowly spreads upwards until a point is reached where blood supply is adequate to keep the tissue viable www.indiandentalacademy.com


DRY GANGRENE  Macroscopically,  Affected part is dry, shrunken and dark black, resembling the foot of a mummy  Black colour – iron sulphide - action of hydrogen sulphide (bacteria) on the haemoglobin (haemolysed red blood cell)  Line of separation –complete separation – eventual falling off of the gangrenous tissue www.indiandentalacademy.com

WET GANGRENE  Wet or moist gangrene develops as a complication of an untreated infected wound.  Swelling resulting from the bacterial infection causes a sudden stoppage of blood flow. www.indiandentalacademy.com


WET GANGRENE  Occurs in naturally moist tissues and organs       

Mouth- Cancrum oris Bowel Lung Cervix Vulva Diabetic foot – high sugar Bed sores – pressure on sites –buttocks, sacrum and heels www.indiandentalacademy.com


WET GANGRENE  Cessation of blood flow facilitates invasion of the muscles by the bacteria and multiplication of the bacteria because white blood cells cannot reach the affected part.

www.indiandentalacademy.com


WET GANGRENE - clinically  The affected area becomes swollen and decays.  It is extremely painful.  Local oozing occurs.  It produces a foul-smelling odor.  It becomes black.  The affected person develops a fever. www.indiandentalacademy.com

WET GANGRENE  Histologically,  Coagulative necrosis with stuffing of blood  Ulceration of mucosa  Intense inflammatory infiltrations  Lumen of bowel contains mucus and blood

 No line of demarcation www.indiandentalacademy.com


GAS GANGRENE  Special form of wet gangrene  Clostridial spores are widely distributed in the environment  May enter traumatic or surgical wounds  Contamination may also occur from patients own faecal flora

www.indiandentalacademy.com


GAS GANGRENE  Gas gangrene results from the following clostridial species:  Clostridium welchii  Clostridium oedmatiens  Clostridium septicum

www.indiandentalacademy.com


GAS GANGRENE-clinically  Patients are generally toxic and unwell  Often have features of shock, jaundice, haemolysis or acute renal failure  Local signs of gas gangrene include:  Myositis or myonecrosis  Gas formation with palpable crepitus  Mottled discolouration of the overlying skin  Plain X-ray often shows gas in the subcutaneous tissue and fascial plains www.indiandentalacademy.com

GAS GANGRENE

www.indiandentalacademy.com


GAS GANGRENE  Grossly,  Affected area is swollen, edematous & painful  Crepitates – accumulation of gas bubbles  Subsequently, tissue becomes dark black and foul smelling www.indiandentalacademy.com


GAS GANGRENE  Microscopically,  Coagulative necrosis with liquefaction  Gram positive bacilli  Periphery – a zone of leucocytic infiltration, oedema and congestion  Capillary and venous thrombi is common www.indiandentalacademy.com


GAS GANGRENE  Microscopy of wound exudate shows gram-positive bacilli  Rectangular shape without spore formation  Anaerobic culture on blood agar show haemolytic colonies (Clostridium welchii)  'Stormy' clot reaction with litmus milk  Clostridium welchii also shows positive Nagler reaction  Due to lecithinase reaction of alpha exotoxin www.indiandentalacademy.com


GAS GANGRENE  Treatment   

Failure of recognition often results in rapid deterioration Patients require adequate resuscitation Debridement or amputation should be considered to remove affected tissue or limb  Organisms are usually sensitive to penicillin  Hyperbaric oxygen may be helpful

 Prevention  Benzylpenicillin antibiotic prophylaxis in those with  Contaminated wounds  Diabetic undergoing elective peripheral vascular surgery www.indiandentalacademy.com
