There is fusiform aneurysmal dilation of 2 cm segment of extrahepatic proper hepatic
artery, measuring 7 mm in maximal diameter ..plain English please?
Keep your next appt: Due to weakness in the wall of that particular artery, the wall balloons out (aneurysm) & it's diameter is 7mm. The main risk it can cause to your health is rupture & subsequent bleeding. Rupture is more likely if you had multiple ones (you don't), if it was not caused by atherosclerosis (check with your doc), & if you're having pain. Keep your next appointment for follow up. Hope that helps. ...Read more
Have relatively short 100% blockage in mid LAD &100% posterolateral branch of circumflex artery (both relatively small targets).Will stent help or ris?
stent: There are technical factors in deciding whether stenting is possible and physiologic predictions of whether successful stenting will yield benefit. Your doctors including interventional cardiologist are best to advise you regarding your specific situation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
MRI vertebrobasilar hypoplasia right side theres robust flow void anastomosing the basilar artery w cavernous portion of internal carotid artery/mean?
Normal variant: The arteries at the base of the brain can course in several different patterns but ultimately get the job done, that is, supply brain tissue. Your pattern is like your fingerprint. Some more unusual patterns have an increased association with aneurysms, but this would have likely been described if present and vertebro basilar hypoplasia, as in the picture, is pretty common. ...Read more

Severe incompetence of left saphenous vein at distal 3rd with increase in size to .45cm diameter.Reflux by provactive maneuveus 5 seconds.No clot. (?)
LASER CLOSURE.: If you have varicose veins, symptoms from varicose veins or signs of venous insufficiency, and a venous reflux exam that demonstrates venous reflux, you would be a candidate for a closure procedure with either a laser or a radio frequency catheter. This is the gold standard of vein treatment. You should see a vein specialist. ...Read more
MRI =Mild" thickening of heart muscle not HOCM.Tortuous descending aorta. Aberrant right subclavian artery which courses posterior to the trachea. ??
Mild thickening's OK: See my comment to your previous post regarding the other findings (tortuous aorta, subclavian artery). The mild thickening of the heart muscle is common, and not necessarily from HCM. It could be the effects of long-standing hypertension. Keeping ur BP low with a -pril or a -sartan (Enalapril, Valsartan, etc.) could even reverse the thickening of the heart. Thanks 4 ur question on HealthTap, & GL! ...Read more

See Vein opposite Radial Artery pulsing bulging in time with heart is this Ulnar Artery ? Not seen so pronounced in Opposite inner wrist, normal?
Pulsation: The vein most likely is touching the radial artery and moves as the artery pulsates. If this pulsation is much more noticeable than the pulsation of the left radial artery, I would check the blood pressure in both arms to see if there is a significant difference and to see if there is abnormally high bp in the right arm. A vascular surgeon could also check for an aneurysm of the right radial arter ...Read more
I have my report - uterus enlarges measuring over 10 CM in length, 6.5 CM in ap diameter & 7.6 CM transversely. Discrete firbroid is not clearly seen?
Adenomyosis?: You have an enlarged uterus without a specific fibroids or other tumors. This may be consistent with that of adenomyosis which is a condition when the lining of the uterus (endometrium) invades into the uterine wall. This causes the uterus to enlarge and may be accompanied by heavy periods and/or severe menstrual cramps. ...Read more
Ct/ct angie chest w/o con (pe) shows ascend. Aortic aneurysmal dialation of 4.5 CM in maximal diameter last month. Echocardiogram no aneurysm?
Repeat test: Having an ascending aorta that measures 4.5 cm is considered an aneurysm but it is not large enough that any intervention (i.e. Surgery) would typically be recommended. The echocardiogram may have found the aorta to be slightly less than this size and therefore it wasn't interpreted as an aneurysm. Unless you are having symptoms (chest/upper back pain) then a repeat study in 1 year is adequate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ulnar artery shows peak velocity at 30 m/s proximally & 20 m/s @ the level of wrist & is responsible for profusion in hand. What does this mean?
Results at dx office: You had a doppler study at your doctors office. You may have had a nerve conduction study as well. Make sure whenever you have a study you review the results with the doctor. In this case a vascular surgeon may have the lab and will review as to whether there is trip basic flow and compare the results to normals. ...Read more

Middle LAD & circumflex artery are 100% blocked. Blockages, while severe, short in length.Both arteries receive collateral. Can angioplasty/stent help?
Explain my anomaly: sup. Sag. Sinus extending into posterior fossa in the midline w/bifurcation into two veins draining into jugular bulbs?
Holding neck straight upward, there is a small lump approx. 1 inch above collarbone directly on top of sternomastoid. Thyroid or jugular lymph node?
Just a guess: If it's very superficial, likely neither. If directly deep to the muscle, it's probably a lymph node (unless your thyroid is very large). Dozens of nodes are present in the neck, and it can be normal to be able to feel a few. If it's new, enlarging, over about 1cm, firm, or if you have a history of cancer or are simply just concerned, it is never inappropriate to see a doctor (ent, etc.). ...Read more
