If the flow does get blocked & the organs die from lack of adequate blood flow, the patient is likely to die a horrible death. You need your intestines like you need a heart. ...Read more

What could cause peak systolic velocity of right internal carotid artery to be elevated to 130cm/s but no elevation in left ica & no stenosis found?
Carotid disease: Any blood vessel may have a "blockage" due to internal clots/plaque or external pressure. The blockage can be graded and thus roughly estimated to be 25, 50, 50-75, more than 75%. Occasionally 60% is used as a cut off. Those numbers help to compare but also help to determine if blockage is significant enough to cause harm. Less than 50% says it is not significant. Test can monitor changes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
