Can the left internal mammary artery side branches affect blood flow rate in humans?

Can the left internal mammary artery side branches affect blood flow rate in humans?

Depends: Coronary steal from unligated side branches from the left internal mammary artery (lima) when it is used for coronary bypass is an area of open debate. Most surgeons will ligate a large side branch to prevent the possibility of steal, small branches are often not (the risk of ligating higher than the liklihood of steal). The exact size that requires ligation to prevent steal is unknown. ...Read more

MRI =Mild" thickening of heart muscle not HOCM.Tortuous descending aorta. Aberrant right subclavian artery which courses posterior to the trachea. ??

Mild thickening's OK: See my comment to your previous post regarding the other findings (tortuous aorta, subclavian artery). The mild thickening of the heart muscle is common, and not necessarily from HCM. It could be the effects of long-standing hypertension. Keeping ur BP low with a -pril or a -sartan (Enalapril, Valsartan, etc.) could even reverse the thickening of the heart. Thanks 4 ur question on HealthTap, & GL! ...Read more

Some more unusual patterns have an increased association with aneurysms, but this would have likely been described if present and vertebro basilar hypoplasia, as in the picture, is pretty common. ...Read more

Mildlynprominent retroperitoneal lymph nodes largest measuring 1.8 by 1.1 centimeters to the left renal vein does this sound like cancer?

Prominent nodes: These findings are borderline and nonspecific. In the absence of other pathology, enlarged lymph nodes in other areas of the body or enlargement of liver or spleen, this may be insignificant. I feel your physician should review the study with the radiologist and describe any symptoms you might have and obtain recommendations for any other studies or specialty referrals advised by the radiologist ...Read more
