Possibly: May Thurner Syndrome, or compression of the iliac vein as you mentioned, means you are at risk for DVT's or deep venous thromboses. These can dislodge from the leg and travel, through the heart, to the vessels to the lungs and cause a pulmonary embolus (PE). PE can cause chest pain and shortness of breath. Would absolutely have this evaluated by your physician as soon as possible. ...Read more

I'm pursuing medicine and I'd like to know the effect of fusion of iliac crest on the height. To what extent its fusion increases the height of a man?

I'm pursuing medicine and I'd like to know the effect of fusion of iliac crest on the height. To what extent its fusion increases the height of a man?

None: When the iliac crest fuses (fuses all the way), that means the skeleton has finished growing in height. The iliac crest itself does not cause one to be taller or shorter (or at least not by any noticeable amount). Height is affected by growth in the long bones (such as the leg bones) plus growth in the spine. ...Read more

Would sacral iliac and ala injections cure coccyx pain?

Would sacral iliac and ala injections cure coccyx pain?
