Cerebral Angiogram Recovery
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had a cerebral angiogram two days ago. Now I am experiencing pain, bruising, swelling, and a large hard mass at puncture site. Should I be concerned?

I had a cerebral angiogram go wrong my artery in my right groin was dissected and my artery in the left groin collapsed how many per yr is safe?

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
What would be a reason to get a cerebral angiogram? I had high blood pressure could this be why? What are other reasons.
Stenosis/aneurysm: A cerebral (brain) angiogram is a specific test examing the arteries of the brain. An angiogram is done when there is suspicion of a 'brain aneurysm' --have you had new onset of severe headaches? 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
I have to have an angiogram post cerebral aneurysm coiling 8 months ago. Routine check. Is angiogram a risky procedure. Im having mine under ga?
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. Ask about ct angio or MRI as followup? Perhaps thought is to do more coils? Ask why general anes? Most are local with some sedatives. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Does Cerebal Angiogram and MRI angiography both have same accuracy to detect a AVM? I perfer to have less invasive MRI Angiography.
Almost: A conventional cerebral angiogram is still considered the gold standard, but there is about a 1% chance of stroke from the procedure, plus other risks from needing to enter an artery. There is an advantage that if you have a treatable lesion, they can do a procedure during the angiogram. Otherwise, I almost always recommend the MR-angiogram or CT-angiogram because there is almost no risk. ...Read more
