Femoral Nerve Ultrasound
Femoral block complications. Can masses around the femoral nerve
and femoral artery complicate femoral
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
Is ilioinguinal nerve the same size as sciatic nerve?Saw mr neurography image of the sciatic nerve.Can ilioinguinal nerve appear that clearly on mrn?
Not likely: The sciatic nerve is anatomically larger than the ilioinguinal nerve. Mrn is not widely available. The ilioinguinal nerve is not as likely to be seen as clearly on mrn as the sciatic nerve. ...Read more
Hernias can do a lot: The "posterior cutaneous nerve" I think is AKA posterior division of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN). LFCN problems mess up feeling in the front, outside of the thigh. Symptoms usu. happen with seat belt inj., bone grafts and diabetes. There are many weird hernias in the pelvis so it seems possible to compromise the LFCN but in 30 yrs of reading CT and MRI, I've not seen it. ...Read more

Radial artery occlusion. Ultrasound radiologist says ulnar artery i'd providing good flow. He says pain may be due yo nerve damage. What is treatment.
Chronic radial artery occlusion. Pain in hand arterial doppler shows interosseos artery enlarged. Ulnar artery responsbile for profusion. Advice?
Can magnetic resonance neurography detect injury/inflammation to the ilioinguinal nerve or the iliohypogastric nerve?If not, what can?
It may: Mr neurography has not been perfected, is only performed at a few specialized centers, and highly operator dependent. High resolution ultrasound may be more cost effective and provide the desired information. Regardless, injury to these nerves can be diagnosed on clinical grounds and imaging is rarely needed. Diagnostic nerve block with an anesthetic agent may help confirm the diagnosis. ...Read more

A nerve: The genitofemoral nerve is a single nerve, about the diameter of a piece of spaghetti. It splits into a genital branch and a femoral branch. In males, the genital branch innervates the cremaster muscle and part of the scrotal skin. As with most nerves large enough to have a name, it is composed of a bunch of nerve fibers, also known as axons. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
31 yr-old with right wrist fracture via injury Oct. 2015. ORIF & median nerve decompressed. January xray: collapse of distal radial reduction.....?
Unfortunate: If the reduction has been lost, unfortunately you are probably going to need further surgery to get the fracture back in anatomical alignment. The danger in not doing this will be to develop post traumatic arthritis and a poor outcome. You might want to consider a second opinion from a hand specialist before proceeding with a second surgery if it can be obtained quickly. ...Read moreSee 8 more doctor answers
Hi,,impressions show compression of L5 nerve root spinalcanal narrowing bilateral neural foraminal narrowing at L4 l5.diffuse posterior disc bulge at?
Sounds like a fairly: Typical read for a male over 50 years old. Many findings are normal for age and sex as described here. They may not be related to symptoms or may cause symptoms. That is why a careful history and physical exam must be done in conjunction with imaging studies to fully assess the issues presented by the patient. ...Read more
Broad based disc protrusion at l4-l5 level compressing anterior thecal sac and bilateral travers nerve root and narrowing neural reces
Prefer no surgery: Sounds like a fairly large disc protrusion, but if no progressive muscle weakness, atrophy or bladder involvement, might be able to get conservative PT, stretching, exercise, acupuncture, and try to allow disc to desiccate and shrink, which it may well do over 8-9 months. Key issue is presence or absence of neurological involvement. Steroids may help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: The gubernaculum itself is not evaluated with scrotal ultrasound. Scrotal injury evaluation is directed toward the testicles (fracture/hematoma) and whether there is fluid (hematocele, hydrocele) around the testicles which can itself be uncomfortable and, in the setting of hematocele, a marker for the degree of injury. ...Read more
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more
