Artery (Definition)

Arteries are a type of blood vessels. We can divide blood vessels into 2 categories. Arteries are high pressure vessels which deliver (red) oxygen + blood out into the body. Veins on the other hand or low pressure vessels which return (dark) oxygent - blood from the body ...Read more

Ultrasound says that the brachial artery has normal triphasic flow but also indicates collateral distal flow. What is collateral distal flow? Bad?

Ultrasound says that the brachial artery has normal triphasic flow but also indicates collateral distal flow. What is collateral distal flow?  Bad?

Flow around blockage: Distal collateral arterial flow would imply that an arterial branch of the brachial artery such as the ulnar or radial artery is blocked or narrowed. When this happens, small branching arteries that can bridge the blocked segment enlarge to get some blood beyond the blockage. These collateral branches maintain viability and some function of the areas affected by the main blockage. ...Read more

Brachial artery shows triphasic flow but with blunting of the dialostic component and suggests collateral distal flow. What does this mean?

Perhaps a fistula: Arterial blood flow has three phases, rapid forward flow systolic flow, transient reversal of flow during early diastole, and slow forward flow during late diastole. In your case, there appears to be some change in the diastolic flow, suggesting that there may be some connection that has formed over time or resulted from some trauma. The significance depends on the clinical history and findings. ...Read more

I underwent Celiac artery aneurysm embolization by coil occlusion. It was successful but can I suffer complications later? I'm 44 and concerned

I underwent Celiac artery aneurysm embolization by coil occlusion. It was successful but can I suffer complications later?  I'm 44 and concerned

Isolated celiac: artery aneurysm is a rare condition. You should be happy that embolization was successful. I don't think you will suffer any remote complications from the procedure itself. Major concern would be development of any other aneurysms in other parts of your body, such as brain or any genetic defect. It seems unlikely that this celiac artery aneurysm was caused by atherosclerosis. ...Read more
