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

MRI =Mild" thickening of heart muscle not HOCM.Tortuous descending aorta. Aberrant right subclavian artery which courses posterior to the trachea. ??
Mild thickening's OK: See my comment to your previous post regarding the other findings (tortuous aorta, subclavian artery). The mild thickening of the heart muscle is common, and not necessarily from HCM. It could be the effects of long-standing hypertension. Keeping ur BP low with a -pril or a -sartan (Enalapril, Valsartan, etc.) could even reverse the thickening of the heart. Thanks 4 ur question on HealthTap, & GL! ...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

My recent thoracic MRI for scoliosis shows right-sided aortic arch& right-sided descending thoracic aorta..possible congenital heart dis. Can u die ?
Chill out: If you lived to the ripe age of 31 before finding out you had this anomaly, you will likely live a full life without problems. The process is likely a "laterality sequence". This originates early in fetal formation. Those with bad heart defects show up early in life. You need further study, and consultation with a geneticist. The worst of these is more common in males. ...Read more
