Bilateral Venous Doppler
Just had a bilateral venous doppler was told by technician who performed it that I have venous insufficiency what should I expect from dr appointment
Explanation: Venous insufficiency is caused by damage to the valves in your veins. This can lead to swelling, varicose veins, discoloration, and ulcerations. Initial therapy consists of compression stocking therapy, as well as evaluation for surgical therapy. All of these options will be discussed when you have your appointment with your doctor. ...Read more

US and Doppler: Doppler ultrasound is used to determine if there is retrograde flow in valved vein segments, i.e. between the junction of a superficial vein and a deep vein, 2) between valved segments within a deep vein (deep vein reflux), 3) between valved segments of superficial veins (segmental venous reflux). B mode US compression techniques look for dvt and distal augmentation to confirm flow upstream ...Read more
Depends on symptoms.: Bilateral funiculitis means inflammation of the spermatic cord on both sides. This could be detected on power doppler ultrasound as increased flow and dilated blood vessels. Treatment depends on clinical signs and symptoms. If there is minimal pain or discomfort, no treatment may be necessary. Signs of infection require treatment with antibiotics. Pain can be treated with anti-inflammatory meds. ...Read more
Mild venous leakage was diagnosed using doppler testing...Viagra (sildenafil) 25mg was prescribed...Worked while sitting but lost erection upon standing why?

Debatable: Few vascular surgeons make decisions on carotid artery stenosis based on mr, as carotid doppler (ultrasound) has been proven to be very reliable when a good technologist performs the study. From what you're describing, your carotid arteries are likely without disease as the reporting standards for ultrasound haven't quite been set. In my lab you'd likely be found to have no disease at all. ...Read more
I've had multiple cbcs and venous dopplers, all normal. My doctor thinks I have erythromelalgia. It's mild no pain, is this disorder life threatening?
Different types: Erythromelalgia is very rare, and can be both primary (ie no known cause) or secondary (due to another disorder). Your doctor has been careful to look for specific kinds of blood disorders, which could be problematic, and no doubt will continue to do so. Otherwise, if it is asymptomatic and mild, recent studies show no overall influence to general prognosis. (ref: Vasa. 2012; 41 (1):43-8) ...Read more

Many possibilities: Some of the most common causes for pedal edema include: excess salt intake, varicose veins, prolonged sitting, certain medications (calcium channel blockers, pioglitazone, steroids). You did not mention if a heart evaluation has been done, as heart failure is also a common cause. Avoiding salt is very important to help decrease pedal edema. ...Read more
What causes lower calves to swell. Had venous doppler test. Showed little reflux In one. Started when had Cdiff with abnormal ekg. Stress test okay.
Fluid in the legs: If someone has had a recent illness, swelling in the legs can be a byproduct of that-esp. If it was severe. If you had C. diff, then you probably were quite ill. I suspect your albumin must be low (a protein in the blood and correlate of good health). Leg swelling in your case is probably from tissue fluid (lymph) that's sitting there in that 3rd space. As your health recovers, it should go away. ...Read more

Ultrasound study: The use of the doppler effect is applied to obtain images of the body. A sound wave probe emits a high frequency signal which is then transmitted through coupling gel at the skin level into the body, and the sound waves return to the probe, are analyzed and portrayed as an image on a screen. This can be done in any part of the body, including blood vessels, soft tissue parts, and it is painless. ...Read more
Lots of things: In addition to what dr. Isobe mentioned, a doppler ultrasound study of a baby can tgell you the age, sex, and size of the baby. It can tell you if there is enough, too little, or too much amniotic fluid. It can tell about the attachment and health of the placenta. It can also tell you if you have one baby, twins, or more! It is an easy way to get a lot of infomration painlessly. ...Read more
