PFTs...: In pulmonary function testing, volume flow refers to how much air is inhaled or exhaled whereas the rate of flow tests how fast the air is inhaled or exhaled. ...Read more
Ultrasound says that the brachial artery has normal triphasic flow but also indicates collateral distal flow. What is collateral distal flow? Bad?
Flow around blockage: Distal collateral arterial flow would imply that an arterial branch of the brachial artery such as the ulnar or radial artery is blocked or narrowed. When this happens, small branching arteries that can bridge the blocked segment enlarge to get some blood beyond the blockage. These collateral branches maintain viability and some function of the areas affected by the main blockage. ...Read more
MRI of the brain 12.07.2014 CONCLUSION: external hydrocephalus. Lateral ventricles ASYMMETRICAL BRAIN L> R, Ext. Third ventricle is not expanded, the
Hydrocephalus: External hydrocephalus is a build up of cerebrospinal fluid over the surface of the brain rather than in the ventricles. Normally cerebrospinal fluid circulates from the brain to the spinal cord and back to the brain. When there is poor reabsorption or blockage then hydrocephalus (water on the brain) develops. See a neurosurgeon to help with treatment. ...Read more

What was scanned?: This may not be the forum to answer your questions, as we are limited to 400 characters in our response. You are best off using HealthTap Prime to upload the entire report or discussing the report with the doctor who ordered the scan. From your wording, it seems as if it's an ultrasound scan. What part of the body? What symptoms were you having? This report may not explain anything except artifact ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Theoretically...: The breasts have several different sources of blood flow -- from the armpit artery (axillary), the chest wall itself (perforators) with each artery coming from individual rib arteries, a large internal chest artery (internal mammary artery), and other assorted arteries. Constricting ALL of these blood vessels is nearly impossible, so the chance that this could happen and stunt breast growth = 0. ...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

Brachial artery shoes triassic flow but with blunting if the dialostic component and suggests collateral distal flow. What is collateral distal flow?
Are there scenarios when opening cto of LAD results in less function due to increased flow to nonviable cells and less flow to collateral fed cells?
NO: When a chronic total occlusion is opened, circulation is restored to all areas. Non-viable tissue doesn't contract; viable tissue does but may take time for full restoration of function. There is no mechanism present that increases flow to non-viable cells. ...Read more
Normal left ventricular dimension with segmental wall motion abnormality suggestive of CAD with adequate systolic function. What's the meaning?
If doppler arterial ultrasound says ulnar artery is supplying flow and collateral flow is good . What is embolism with branch occlusion.
I will try again: There are several cause of arterial occlusions. There are degrees of arterial blockage. If a clot moves- embolize s it can obstruct multiple vessels and branches causing more tissue to be under circulated-ischemic. The remaining question is why the radial clotted: embolus, trauma, needle sticks, thoracic outlet and aneurysm. Need exam. Doppler helps define the location but not the cause. ...Read more
Yes, ...: Increasing blood flow in response to mental and physical stimulation and exertion takes place to all tissues and organs of the body. During masturbation and sex, more blood diverting to genital organs is expected, but of course, only temporary; this phenomenon is like more blood diverted to gastrointestinal tract for digestion after a full stomach. ...Read more
Both cause cyanosis: Both are congenital heart defects that cause cyanosis (less oxygen than normal in the arterial blood.) however that is the only similarity. In transposition of the great arteries, the primary problem is that the aorta arises from the right ventricle instead of the left ventricle. In t(total)apvr, the primary problem is that the pulmonary veins do not connect directly with the left atrium. ...Read more
Brachial artery shows triphasic flow but with blunting of the dialostic component and suggests collateral distal flow. What does this mean?
Perhaps a fistula: Arterial blood flow has three phases, rapid forward flow systolic flow, transient reversal of flow during early diastole, and slow forward flow during late diastole. In your case, there appears to be some change in the diastolic flow, suggesting that there may be some connection that has formed over time or resulted from some trauma. The significance depends on the clinical history and findings. ...Read more

Ultrasound shows features of chronic total radial artery occlusion with collateral flow in ulnar artery. Can this affect pregnancy.
Not likely BUT...: If the radial artery occlusion is an isolated finding, perhaps from an old injury, then there should be no risk to the pregnancy. However, if you are, or were, a very heavy cigarette smoker and especially if you are diabetic then your radial artery problem could be a symptom of a more general vascular pathology which could have a negative impact on your pregnancy. ...Read more
