Cutting Femoral Artery
Femoral block complications. Can masses around the femoral nerve
and femoral artery complicate femoral
Arteries are defined as blood vessels which carry blood away from the heart (to either the body or lungs). 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

Tradional CABG: A traditional cabg, involves using the heart-lung machine to sustain circulation while the heart is stopped so it can be operated on. Saphenous vein and an artery from the inside of the chest wall (lima) are used to bypass the blocked part of the coronary arteries. When the bypass grafts are completed, the heart will naturally start beating again. ...Read more
MAP > 60 mmHg: The mean arterial pressure (MAP) is, at least, > 60 mmhg if one can palpate (feel) the femoral pulse (in each groin). The vessel can be felt just below the groin (inguinal) ligament. In the term "pressure point, " i'm uncertain what you mean. The point of palpability? Please inform... ...Read more
Carefully: The distal end of the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the coronary artery distal to the atheromatous plaque using 8-0 polypropilene and high power magnification. Radial artery or grater saphenous vein grafts are anastomosed to the ascending aorta and tho the coronary distal to the plaque. Obviously the thorax has to be entered and cardiopulmonary bypass may or not be used, . ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: When blood flow is sufficiently reduced by a greater than 70% blockage of an artery or arteries, to the point of permanent damage or weaknening of the heart muscle, or when a plaque ruptures and a blood clot repeatedly forms with resulting blockage of blood flow, then an artery needs to be stented, or bypassed. ...Read more
Depends: Depending on the arterial access , a single IV like catheter is placed called an arterial sheath. All catheters are fed thru the sheath using a j-shaped guide wire. Most sheaths are placed in the femoral artery others in the radial arteries. All arteries lead back to the heart in a retrograde fashion and the catheter is manipulated into the artery of intrest for repair with angioplaty and stent. ...Read more
