Miss World finalist has hands and feet amputated after being hit by infection

Tragic: Brazilian bikini model Mariana Bridi had her hands and feet amputated after being struck down with an infection

A two-time Miss World finalist has had her hands and feet amputated after being struck down with an infection.

Brazilian model Mariana Bridi, 20, had emergency surgery this week after she fell ill with a virus that spread to her blood.

Her devastated boyfriend Thiago Simoes said: 'We are all absolutely distraught and are just praying now that she can pull through.

'She fell ill on December 30 and we took her to hospital where she was misdiagnosed with a kidney stone.

'They gave her some medicine and sent her home. But two days later she started getting worse.

'We took her back to hospital and they said she had a very serious infection.

'She got more and more sick, and had no blood circulation to her limbs.

'First she lost her feet, then on Tuesday she lost both her hands.

'But she is a very strong person and we just want her to survive.'

Miss Bridi is in a serious condition on a ventilation machine in hospital in Serra, in the southeastern state of Espirito Santo.

The infection was caused by the pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria.

Doctors took the heartbreaking decision to amputate her feet when the poison spread to her blood and cut off her circulation.

Then they decided they would have to remove her hands as well.

But after that surgery she suffered an internal haemorrhage and had another emergency operation on Wednesday afternoon.

Her father Agnaldo da Costa said: 'The concern now is for her life.'

Miss Bridi was a finalist in the search for Brazil's Miss World contestant in 2006 and 2007.

In 2007 she flew to China to represent her country in the Miss Bikini international competition.

She won a prize there for the most beautiful body, and came sixth out of 50 candidates.

International beauty: Miss Bridi fell ill just three weeks ago

Henrique Fontes, executive director of Miss World Brazil, said Miss Bridi badly needs a transfusion of the uncommon blood type O negative.

He said: 'She has always been a great fighter and has a history of perseverance.

'The first time she took part in a beauty contest, in 2006, she travelled for 20 hours on a bus in very plain clothes, and without any preparation, and she ended up coming fourth. We need her to show that same kind of fight now.

'In China she took on girls from 50 countries, and came sixth and won the prize for best body.

'This is a desperately sad story and we are calling on potential donors to come forward and give blood.'

I'm saddened to read this for sure and am writing a note to the Big Guy Upstairs entitled, "Save this Shit for The Uglies Bro"

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"

Looks like it was a UTI

Quote:
Urinary Tract Infections Common, Usually Easy to Cure

Friday, January 23, 2009

By Karlie Pouliot
Brazilian model, Mariana Bridi da Costa, lost her hands and feet to a severe urinary infection.

Urinary tract infections affect millions of people each year. And in the majority of cases, a quick dose of antibiotics will take care of the problem.

But this wasn’t the case for 20-year-old Brazilian beauty queen Mariana Bridi da Costa, the Miss World finalist who recently had her hands and feet amputated after contracting a severe urinary infection.

Click here for photos of Bridi da Costa.

“I have seen people get septic from a urinary tract infection that goes untreated, but never amputation,” Dr. Debra Fromer, Chief of the Center for Bladder Prostate and Pelvic Floor Health at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey, told FOXNews.com

“This is incredibly rare.”

Bridi da Costa fell ill on Dec. 30 and went to a hospital in the Brazilian city of Serra. She was misdiagnosed with kidney stones and sent home.

How doctors came to that diagnosis is not clear. Fromer said if someone comes in with severe pain on her side, especially over the kidney, several procedures are performed.

“If a kidney stone is suspected, usually an ultrasound or a CT scan is performed to rule out kidney stones,” Fromer said.

Bridi da Costa's infection worsened and she returned to the hospital, but it was too late. Septicemia — the presence of bacteria in the blood — had set in her limbs, cutting off circulation.

"They gave her some medicine and sent her home,” her boyfriend Thiago Simoes said. "We took her back to hospital and they said she had a very serious infection. She got more and more sick, and had no blood circulation to her limbs. First she lost her feet, and then on Tuesday she lost both her hands.”

Urinary tract infections, or UTIs, occur in males and females of all ages, but they are much more common in women.

“The female urethra is very short,” Fromer said. “So, usually in young women … an infection may occur due to intercourse. This happens because the normal bacteria that lives in the urogenital region can easily be transferred from the back side to front side. Then what happens is you get a bladder infection.”

Symptoms include:

— A strong, persistent urge to urinate;

— A burning sensation when urinating;

— Passing frequent, small amounts of urine;

— Blood in the urine or cloudy, strong-smelling urine.

A UTI may occur anywhere along the urinary tract, which includes the kidneys, bladder, ureters — the tubes that take urine from each kidney to the bladder — and the urethra — the tube that empties urine from the bladder to the outside, according to the National Institutes of Health.

Mild UTIs may disappear on their own, but antibiotics are usually recommended to prevent the infection from spreading to the kidneys.

The infections usually disappear within 24 to 48 hours of treatment, though some take up to a week to clear up. Complications, like the life-threatening blood infection or sepsis that affected Bridi da Costa, are rare.

Other rare complications include kidney damage or scarring and kidney infection, according to the NIH’s Medline Plus Web site.

“My advice is to call a doctor, get some antibiotics and don’t let it progress,” Fromer said.

Sad but in all honesty probably the best thing for her. Her life would have been so different with no hands and feet and she would have been miserable.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
