Femoral Artery Calcification
Arteriosclerotic internal carotid & vertebro basilar arteries predominantly the left vertebrobasilar segment appearing tortuous with slight prominence?
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
Chronic radial artery occlusion. Pain in hand arterial doppler shows interosseos artery enlarged. Ulnar artery responsbile for profusion. Advice?
The 2 vertebral arteries arise from the left and right subclavian arteries and supply the brainstem and cerebellum. Dissection is rare (2.5/100, 000), affect women to men 3:1 and can cause stroke in people
None: Calcification of any artery, by itself, does not warrant any type of intervention or follow up. If that calcification is associated with a stenosis ("narrowing") of the artery, then that may require follow up and/or an operation. The carotid arteries are very often calcified and if associated with a high grade stenosis, may portend a higher risk of stroke. Discuss with a vascular surgeon. ...Read more
MRI vertebrobasilar hypoplasia right side theres robust flow void anastomosing the basilar artery w cavernous portion of internal carotid artery/mean?
Normal variant: The arteries at the base of the brain can course in several different patterns but ultimately get the job done, that is, supply brain tissue. Your pattern is like your fingerprint. 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
Elderly Hypertensive: Carotid stenosis usually occurs secondary to longstanding atherosclerosis. Risk factors include high blood pressure, diabetes, and coronary artery disease. It takes time for atherosclerotic plaques to develop, so most patients with carotid artery stenosis are older adults. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The third artery: Normally the main coronary blood vessel has two branches--the left anterior descending artery and left circumflex, but some people have a third branch termed intermediate artery or ramus-coronary artery--see picture. The incidence is some where between 10-30%. This can cause some confusion in ekg interpretation if this vessel is blocked/causing a heart attack. Consult doc.
