Does arterial insufficiency cause edema like chronic venous insufficiency?

Does arterial insufficiency cause edema like chronic venous insufficiency?

Venous edema: One of the hallmarks of chronic venous insufficiency is ankle and leg swelling. In the early stages of venous insufficiency, ankle and leg swelling occur at the end of the day and are relieved by leg elevation. In longstanding venous insufficiency, leg swelling is constant. Arterial insufficiency patients do not typically complain of lower extremity swellling. ...Read more

Is coronary artery disease acute or chronic?

Chronic is Typical: Artery disease, especially in the heart arteries, is dominant human behavior, typically starts in childhood yet is typically ignored for decades because it remains asymptomatic until plaque ruptures release debris, triggers clots & suddenly blocks blood flow. These plaque ruptures are the basis for acute symptomatic disease. Thus best to treat the driving factors early, not wait for symptoms. ...Read more

Can chronic mesenteric ischemia cause pancreatic insuffiency?

Can chronic mesenteric ischemia cause pancreatic insuffiency?

No.: Chronic mesenteric ischemia (cmi) occurs because of poor blood flow to the intestines, classically needing 2 out of 3 blood vessels to the gut with a significant narrowing. The usual symptoms of cmi are abdominal pain after meals, unintended weight loss, and a "fear of eating." the pancreas has such a rich blood supply that poor blood flow to it is not usually a problem. ...Read more

3 major factors: Condition of the artery (caliber, plaque, injury, inflammation...) viscosity of the blood (hydration, tobacco, blood element derangement...) and the force of the blood flow (stasis, poor heart functions...) are the main factors leading to mesentary arterial thrombosis. It can happen in association to an embolic event. ...Read more

What's chronic venous insufficiency?

What's chronic venous insufficiency?

There are two types: Chronic venous insufficiency is when veins do not pump enough oxygen-poor blood back to the heart. This is caused by the valves in the veins leaking or flowing backwards. It usually occurs in the leg . It can be caused by the deep veins leaking [ less common ] or the superficial veins leaking[ more common] . Superficial venous insufficiency is the underlying cause of varicose and spider veins. ...Read more

What is the difference between chronic venous stasis and chronic arterial insufficiency?

What is the difference between chronic venous stasis and chronic arterial insufficiency?

Significant: Chronic venous stasis (cvi) is a result of long standing venous insufficiency due to malfunctioning of the valves of either the superficial, deep or both systems of veins. Chronic arterial insufficiency is due to long standing decrease arterial blood flow into either the legs or arms. Venous problems cause leg swelling and discoloration while arterial problems cause pain and even gangrene. ...Read more

What conditions apart from chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (ccsvi) require ijv angioplasty?

What conditions apart from chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (ccsvi) require ijv angioplasty?

Few: Aside from ccsvi angioplasty of the central veins is most commonly done to relieve narrowings caused by previous intrumentation (central lines, dialysis access, pacemakers, etc). In the ijv it is usually done to restore or improve access for insertion of a central venous catheter of some sort. Tumors can also narrow the central veins to the point where dilation is needed. ...Read more

Not usually: Peripheral vascular disease is most commonly caused by hardening of the arteries from cholesterol deposits and that shouldn't cause anemia. There are a few unusual causes of peripheral vascular problems from rheumatologic diseases which can be associated with anemia but even if you have both, more common causes of anemia need to be ruled out before assuming they are related. ...Read more
