In a nutshell, what is blood vessel injury?

In a nutshell, what is blood vessel injury?

A hole.: The most common type of blood vessel injury is when a hole is sliced or punctured in the wall of the vessel, and it then bleeds through the hole. Just like running over your garden hose with a mower, the fluid can spray pretty far if it's an artery, or leak out slowly if it's a vein. Blood vessels can also be bruised, torn, and stretched in ways that don't cause bleeding, but may stop flow. ...Read more

Can MRI of brain see aneurysm or blood vessel problems(vasculitis)?

Can MRI of brain see aneurysm or blood vessel problems(vasculitis)?

MRI and MRA brain: Yes, an MRI can visualize blood vessels but not well; an MRA (MR angiogram) is the optimal MR test. It uses gadolinium which is not a radio-iodine and is not kidney toxic.

What happens when a blood clot obstructs a blood vessel?

What happens when a blood clot obstructs a blood vessel?

Depends: It depends if the vessel is an artery or a vein, the size of the vessel, collateral circulation, co-existing illnesses etc. Blood clot in a vein can travel to lung and cause lung infarction.

Severe cerebral hemorrhage after minor trauma. Is that due to blood clot?

Severe cerebral hemorrhage after minor trauma. Is that due to blood clot?

Probably not.: Blood clots are the result of hemorrhage or blood stasis, not the other way around. Minor trauma could theoretically cause a cerebral hemorrhage if there was a pre-existing aneurysmal weakness in the blood vessel wall. Sometimes these can be congenital, and sometimes these are due to vascular disease (e.g., atherosclerosis, diabetes type ii). ...Read more

When having a brain aneurysm, do blood vessels become 100% occluded?

When having a brain aneurysm, do blood vessels become 100% occluded?

No: An aneurysm is an abnormal dilation or bulging of the wall of the blood vessel. If that dilated segment becomes very fragile and thin it can rupture due to the pressure of the blood and bleeding occurs into the brain. This bleeding can cause spasm of surrounding vessels. But most of the vessels do not become "occluded". ...Read more
