How long after a cerebral angiogram before you can exercise?

How long after a cerebral angiogram before you can exercise?

It depends on route: If the cerebral angiogram was performed through a catheter insert through a blood vessel in the groin, it is best to avoid exercising for a few days until the blood vessel in the groin is well sealed and won't start-up bleeding when you start running. On the other hand, exercises that don't involve running, such as weight lifting are ok the next day. ...Read more

Can a cerebral infundibulum be dangerous. I was just diagnosed with two via angiogram and the doctor said they need to be monitored why?

Can a cerebral infundibulum be dangerous. I was just diagnosed with two via angiogram and the doctor said they need to be monitored why?

Ask your doc, maybe?: Infundibula are funnel-shaped symmetrical enlargements that occur at the origins of cerebral arteries & are apparent on 7-25% of otherwise normal angiograms. (The word is Latin for "funnel.") An aneurysm can form at the site of one. This is EXTREMELY rare. Your doctor's just being prudent. I'm curious: Why didn't you ask YOUR DOCTOR this question, instead of some stranger on HealthTap? ...Read more

Another reason for cerebral angiogram is to look for 'stenosis' (narrowing) of the arteries which can cause tia's (mini-strokes) --have you had reversible weakness, numbness or speech difficulty. -not bp. ...Read more

Low risk: All risk factors must be considered. Heart, lung, kidney, diabetes and medications. Allergies small, puncture of artery and catheter passed to inject the radio opaque dye.

What are the known risks of a brain angiogram?

Possible allergy: While generally safe, this procedure can be complicated by allergy to the contrast embolus causing a stroke dissection of the artery causing a stroke perforation of a vessel causing bleeding at the site of the insertion of the catheter or more distally damage to the vessel at site of insertion of the catheter requiring surgical repair. ...Read more
