    Bleeding from blood vessels in the UTERUS, sometimes manifested as vaginal bleeding.
  • Uterine Inertia [M0022430]
    Failure of the UTERUS to contract with normal strength, duration, and intervals during childbirth (LABOR, OBSTETRIC). It is also called uterine atony.
  • Vascular Fistula [M0024668]
    An abnormal passage between two or more arteries, or between an artery and a vein.
  • Vasogenic Brain Edema [M0334189]
  • Vasogenic Cerebral Edema [M0334188]
  • Venous Engorgement [M0022582]
  • Venous Thrombosis [M0029908]
    The formation or presence of a thrombus within a vein.
  • Ventricular Dysfunction [M0028090]
    A condition in which the ventricles of the heart exhibit a decreased functionality.
  • Ventricular Dysfunction, Left [M0027729]
    A condition in which the left ventricle of the heart exhibits a decreased functionality. This decreased function could lead to congestive heart failure or myocardial infarction, among other cardiovascular diseases. Diagnostic measurements that indicate this condition include a diminished ejection fraction and a depressed level of motility of the left ventricular wall.
  • Ventricular Dysfunction, Right [M0027739]
    A condition in which the right ventricle of the heart exhibits a decreased functionality. This decreased function could lead to congestive heart failure or myocardial infarction, among other cardiovascular diseases. Diagnostic measurements that indicate this condition include a diminished ejection fraction and a depressed level of motility of the right ventricular wall.
  • Ventricular Premature Complexes [M0028234]
    Premature contractions of the ventricle, the most common of all arrhythmias. In the absence of heart disease, they are not of great clinical significance, but in patients with coronary disease, they represent a constant danger of ventricular tachycardia or fibrillation and sudden death. The longer-term prognosis for asymptomatic, healthy subjects with frequent and complex ectopy is similar to that for the healthy United States population. (From Sokolow, et al., Clinical Cardiology, 5th ed, p491)
  • Virus Shedding [M0026103]
    The expelling of virus particles from the body. Important routes include the respiratory tract, genital tract, and intestinal tract. Virus shedding is an important means of vertical transmission (DISEASE TRANSMISSION, VERTICAL).
  • Vitreous Hemorrhage [M0022821]
    Hemorrhage into the VITREOUS BODY.
  • Vomiting, Postoperative [M0029914]
  • Water-Electrolyte Imbalance [M0022901]
    Disturbances in the body's WATER-ELECTROLYTE BALANCE.
  • Wound Infection [M0023017]
    Invasion of the site of trauma by pathogenic microorganisms.
  • Yang Deficiency [M0025453]
    In the YIN-YANG system of philosophy and medicine, a lack of vital energy (called yangxu in Chinese). It manifests itself in various systemic and organic diseases. (The Pinyin Chinese-English Dictionary, 1979)
  • Yin Deficiency [M0025452]
    In the YIN-YANG system of philosophy and medicine, an insufficiency of body fluid (called yinxu), manifesting often as irritability, thirst, constipation, etc. (The Pinyin Chinese-English Dictionary, 1979).
