Lateral Circumflex Femoral Artery
Chronic radial artery occlusion. Pain in hand arterial doppler shows interosseos artery enlarged. Ulnar artery responsbile for profusion. Advice?
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 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

Sounds reasonable: Obviously many factors need to be considered, but the anatomy you are describing would be difficult to approach with stents. Other factors such as age, frailty, and other medical conditions play a significant role as well. Each decision should be individualized based on his situation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What happens if your posterior descending arterial branch of the right coronary artery diffuse proximal 60 to 80%?
Depends: Many people walk around with significant blockages without knowledge or harm. If the person described has angina or evidence of ischemia on testing, a percutaneous intervention should be considered. Otherwise, forget it - but treat the underlying arteriosclerosis: statin, aspirin, Mediterranean Diet, exercise, ideal body weight, no smoking, good BP control. ...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
Middle LAD & circumflex artery are 100% blocked. Blockages, while severe, short in length.Both arteries receive collateral. Can angioplasty/stent help?
Sudden muscul force: The mechanism of injury in apophyseal avulsions is sudden forceful concentric or eccentric muscle contraction during running, jumping or kicking a ball, which results in traction on the unfused apophysis. Extreme passive stretching and chronic repetitive microtrauma have also been implicated in the development of apophyseal avulsion. ...Read more
The third artery: Normally the main coronary blood vessel has two branches--the left anterior descending artery and left circumflex, but some people have a third branch termed intermediate artery or ramus-coronary artery--see picture. The incidence is some where between 10-30%. This can cause some confusion in ekg interpretation if this vessel is blocked/causing a heart attack. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
1. Ct scan shows 30% stenosis in the proximal vessel, 30-50% stenosis in the mid-vessel in left anterior descending artery. What procedure is needed?
What is the cpt code for a percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasy of the left anterior descending coronary artery?
Athroscopic debridement & menisectomy, partial medial & lateral. Grd1 oa changes lt medial femoral condyle, large posterior horn tear lateral meniscus?
Yikes: The wear on your lateral side and lateral meniscus tear is a not great. The lateral meniscus is responsible for balancing and distribution of force more so than the medial. Be very cautious returning to plant and pivot sports. ...Read more
Is the posterior tibial or peroneal artery a superficial artery? Is there a superficial artery along the lateral aspect of the achilles?
The 2 vertebral arteries arise from the left and right subclavian arteries and supply the brainstem and cerebellum. Dissection is rare (2.5/100, 000), affect women to men 3:1 and can cause stroke in people
Neuralgia ?: Femoral artery pain may be mistaken for femoral neuralgia. But if you've undergone an angiogram, the femoral artery may be dissected or have developed a pseudoaneurysm or an av fistula between the femoral artery & vein. You should get an arterial duplex ultrasound of your specific groin to assess for flow abnormalities and/or a soft tissue defect such as a hematoma. Do you have any bruising? ...Read more
Generally, yes.: An injury to the femoral artery implies a compromise in blood flow into the leg. In general this is only as significant as the symptoms you may have as a result of decreased blood flow (which may be none at all to severe debilitation) and a measure of the blood pressure in the leg, reported as the ankle-brachial index (abi). Discuss more with a board-certified vascular surgeon. ...Read more
Can you tell me in occlusion of the femoral artery at the level at which the profunda femoris is given off, arterial inflow to?
Calf and foot: When the femoral artery decides the profunda feed the muscles of the thigh and the superficial femoral feed the leg from the knee down. There are some connections between the two protecting the leg. ...Read more
Claudication: Which means cram like pains in the calves with walking which gets better with rest and returns with walking. The distance of walking that brings out the pain is called the claudication distance. The shorter the distance the worse is the stenosis. Also, in severe cases the leg loses hair and becomes painful at rest with elevation better with dangling. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: You have very little time to control bleeding from a transected femoral artery before exsanguination. ...Read more
Possibly: The femoral artery is the main conduit to the leg. If acutely cut and not controlled one can quickly bleed enough to die, yes. If it's tied off or acutely clotted it would kill the leg if unattended. Now, a tiny nick could stop with direct pressure but a cut or injury of any size ,at all, is a major injury. Good luck. ...Read more
