Radial And Ulnar Arteries Are Reversed
Dopplerultrasound shows chronic radial artery occlusion with collateral flow in ulnar and intraosseous artery. In pain at elbow and wrist. Need help?
Radial artery: in 80% of people the ulnar artery is the dominant artery bringing blood flow into the hand. It is unclear as to why you have a chronic radial artery occlusion, unless there was some evidence of trauma or arterial line placement. I would recommend that she be evaluated with regards to the pain at the elbow and wrist, but most likely this is not secondary to arterial insufficiency ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Arteries are defined as blood vessels which carry blood away from the heart (to either the body or lungs). Arteries: higher pressure, thicker walls, stretch (pulse) with each heart contraction & deliver blood to the arterioles which control the flow to individual capillaries. Veins are blood vessels which carry blood from capillaries back to the heart (body to right heart; ...Read more
Arterial doppler indicates that brachial, ulnar and intraosseous artery are of low resistive pattern. S this normal. Radial artery occluded due to clot?
Unusual: A peripheral artery should have a high resistant pattern on doppler exam. A low resistance may suggest a connection with a vein, arterial venous (av) malformation or av fistula. An injury to the arm may have caused occlusion of the radial artery and also an av fistula. Luckily the ulnar artery is usually the main vessel supplying the hand. Further studies may be needed to define the anatomy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Diagnosed with total right radial artery occlusion with collateral flow in ulnar and intraosseous artery. Occlusion due thrombus. What does this mean?
Clot in your artery: A blood clot in your artery can occlude the blood flow to your hand, fortunately there are other arteries that can compensate for this. Unless you had trauma to that arm , you should see a hematologist or internal medicine doctor to be worked up to rule out a hypercoagulable condition. You should disclose this to your surgeon if you need surgery in the future ...Read more
Ultrasound shows features of chronic total radial artery occlusion with collateral flow in ulnar artery. Can this affect pregnancy.
Not likely BUT...: If the radial artery occlusion is an isolated finding, perhaps from an old injury, then there should be no risk to the pregnancy. However, if you are, or were, a very heavy cigarette smoker and especially if you are diabetic then your radial artery problem could be a symptom of a more general vascular pathology which could have a negative impact on your pregnancy. ...Read more
Chronic total radial artery occlusion in right hand with collateral flow in ulnar and intraosseous artery. What course of action would u.Advise?
Probably harmless: I doubt that cto of the radial artery will cause much problem. I harvest the radial artery frequently for coronary bypass, usually in the non-dominant arm. As long as you have good ulnar collateral refill, it wont cause you any long term problems. ...Read more
Chronic radial artery occlusion. Pain in hand arterial doppler shows interosseos artery enlarged. Ulnar artery responsbile for profusion. Advice?
Have chronic radial artery occlusion. Having pain. When is coronary bypass done. Good flow in ulnar artery. Advice.
When needed: Having occlude radial artery no major problem ulnar art is there as for pain is it chest pain? Then u should be w/u for that with ur cardiologist with stress test or other , there are other options other than ur radial art for bypass ima r or l saph vein r or l but neede to c ur dr for DX and rec"s. ...Read more
I have total right radial artery occlusion with collateral flow through ulnar and intraosseous arteries. Is this a good thing or bad? What i'd collat
Not a good thing but: The dominant circulation to your hand in 90% of patients is through the ulnar artery. So unless you are one of the other 10%, there should be no major vascularissue; i would need to know what the cause for your artery occlusion was to further answer you. Patients with poor circ to the hand may experience cold intolerance, decreased strength, hand pain and soreness. ...Read more
Middle LAD & circumflex artery are 100% blocked. Blockages, while severe, short in length.Both arteries receive collateral. Can angioplasty/stent help?
Arterial doppler shows occluded radial artery. Ulnar supplying flow. Sharp pain on movement and in shoulder, elbow & wrist. Any suggestions.
Radial block: A cardiologist reviewing the results of the doppler study, would be your best bet. ...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
Why compressing both left and right common carotid arteries leads to brain death when vertebral arteries(and also circle of willis) still supply .
Carotid occlusion: The vertebral arteries are not enough to sustain the entire blood brain perfusion. They contribute to the anterior circulation by means of the posterior communicating arteries. There are common anatomical variants and in some cases these arteries are not patent or existent. The situation you describe may and most likely cause a massive brain infarction with subsequent brain herniation/death. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If doppler arterial ultrasound says ulnar artery is supplying flow and collateral flow is good . What is embolism with branch occlusion.
I will try again: There are several cause of arterial occlusions. There are degrees of arterial blockage. If a clot moves- embolize s it can obstruct multiple vessels and branches causing more tissue to be under circulated-ischemic. The remaining question is why the radial clotted: embolus, trauma, needle sticks, thoracic outlet and aneurysm. Need exam. Doppler helps define the location but not the cause. ...Read more
How successful is angioplasty for a completely occluded superficial femoral artery throughout the proximal and mid thigh? What are the alternatives?
Brachial artery shoes triassic flow but with blunting if the dialostic component and suggests collateral distal flow. What is collateral distal flow?
What does it mean "Normal vascular flow voids are present in the distal carotid and vertebral arteries, the
basilar artery and the proximal anterior, ?
Radial artery occlusion. Ultrasound radiologist says ulnar artery i'd providing good flow. He says pain may be due yo nerve damage. What is treatment.
Ultrasound shows brachial artery with low resistive pattern. Is that normal? Radial artery was not demonstrated. Have occlusion. Treatment?
Is the Ulnar working: Usually the hand has two arches of arterial flow connecting the Ulnar and Radial arteries, in a deep and superficial pattern. In most people, the loss of the radial artery will be compensated for, by the ulnar artery, though the arches. ...Read more
