Cause Of Femoral Artery Aneurysm
Abnormal swelling: There are 2 basic types of femoral aneurysms- pseudoaneurysms- frequently caused by angiograms, and true aneurysms. Pseudoaneurysm treatment depends on the size, but should be assessed by a vascular surgeon. True aneurysms are treated depending on size, and have the risk of clotting off or tossing debris down the leg. They are also associated with a higher risk of aneurysms of the aorta. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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

Compress the artery at the nearest bony point towards the heart using fingers or a tourniquet and get to er fast. After major trauma, reaching the er within an hour saves lives and limbs. ...Read more

"Artery"?: 4 structures pass through the "groin area" (inguinal region). From lateral to medial, they are the femoral nerve, femoral artery, femoral vein, & a lymphatic vessel, which is separated from the vein by an empty space.
