Arteries Arm Heart Bypass Veins Leg
Is there a significant difference between getting arteries from your arm for heart bypass instead of veins from your leg?
Maybe better: There is debate in cardiovascular surgery whether radial arteries have better long term results than saphenous vein grafts. Assuming the surgeon is experienced in handling the radial artery, the results are at least as good as vein grafts and maybe better over the long run. ...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
29/f pain in my left veins arms/legs/neck driving me crazy! cardiologist certain my heart is fine to the point where she's annoyed. nerves? anxiety?
A part of one vein c: A part of one vein can hurt due to inflammation. But all veins can not get inflamed at the same time. So I suspect the cause of your pains is not from your veins. For now lets try using pain medicine like Tylenol/Paracetamol for 3 days and let me know if it helped to take care of your problem. You can repeat this medication at 4 to 6 hours if needed. ...Read more
I had the vein removed from my thigh 8 yrs ago when I had a heart bypass. Am getting a lot of pain at one end of scar. Any reason for this?
Possible neuroma: Small nerves travel i close proximity to the vein and when injured (which is not always preventable) they may cause the surrounding are to be numb or may produce a neuroma which is a benign pressure sensitive tumor that may cause pain or electrical shocks. If these do not respond to desensitization they may need to be destroyed or excised or transferred to muscle/bone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I went for an ultrasound at 10 weeks, i saw the babys heas, arms, legs and heart beat but they didnt give me any information, should i worry?
Not necessarily: Destiny, At 10 weeks, that's about all there is to see on ultrasound. They can take some basic measurements in addition, but most of the real information occurs at the 18-20 week ultrasound, when the baby is more developed. If you have no pain or bleeding, and they didn't mention any abnormalities, all is probably well. If you develop severe pain or bleeding, call your OB doctor. Hope this helps ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Im 34-mother of 3 older children.Was folding laundry 2nite suddenly felt throb in L.leg.I look & there's huge swollen vein-Varic.veins-2young? Heart?
Not heart: Take a tape measure and check the diameter of your involved leg where it hurts. Do the same on the other leg at the exact same level. They should B within 1 inch of each other. If the painful leg is swollen, C your doctor today for a possible blood clot. If not, it's likely just a muscle spasm (which occurs commonly). This is NOT a symptom of heart disease. Varicose veins are cosmetic issues only. ...Read more

White spots underskin. Not rising...completely underskin on arms and legs. What is it and is it something to do with my heart? Very nervous
No: There is virtually no known heart disease that causes a white spotted rash. Impossible to diagnose your spots without seeing them but tinea versicolor comes to mind. I've uploaded a picture which should be visible to you. Also, here's a link: https://www.aad.org/dermatology-a-to-z/diseases-and-treatments/q---t/tinea-versicolor (the photo on the linked site isn't very good). ...Read more

Then if normal, cut out any alcohol and caffeine in your diet and stay well hydrated. If dizziness means room spinning, then you need to see an ent. ...Read more
For friend...She is having chest pains..It radiates down her arm and severe cramping in her legs and racing heart?
Chest pains: Chest pain radiating down your arm suggests heart disease. There is no obvious connection to cramps in the legs. To assess the type of chest pain ask these questions: 1. Does it occur with exertion or after eating or being upset? 2. Does it stop with several minutes of rest? 3. Does it feel like pressure under the middle of the sternum. 3 yes=high ; 2 yes=medium risk; 1 yes=lower; 0 yes=very low. ...Read more
