what are some manifestations of right sided heart failure congestion of liver, spleen, peripheral edema, ascites, and pleural effusions
what is brown induration when you have chronic passive congestion of lungs there is leakage of blood from congested capillaries over time resulting in accumulation of hemosiderin in alveolar macrophages and thickening of the alveolar walls
