My wife is told after a echocardiography that ""interatrial septum appears aneurysmal"" what is that mean?

My wife is told after a echocardiography that ""interatrial septum appears aneurysmal"" what is that mean?

Prob. Normal variant: The intraatrial septum is the divider between the left and right atria (top chambers of heart). There is normally a hole there in fetal development that closes in infancy in most people. About 1% of the population has some part of that hole remaining. A floppy ias is associated with higher frequency of this residual hole, but is not diagnostic. Unless history of stroke, prob. Nothing to do.

Hypertrophy (Definition)

Hypertrophy is an increase in size of an organ or tissue, or a particular part of the body. Examples include muscle hypertrophy due to lifting weights, ventricular hypertrophy (enlargement of a ventricle of the heart) due to high blood pressure or other heart disorders, or prostatic hypertrophy (enlargement of ...Read more

My colonoscopy identified a "prominent IC Valve" with underlying lipomatous tissue. What is an IC Valve?

Ileocecal valve: Ileocecal valve is the "gate" or sphincter between small and large intestines. Ask your physician whether anything needs to be followed up for the enlargement

Dear Sir FNAC result "Smear consists of fibrofatty tissue with few lymphocytes and polymorphs suggestive of inflammed lipomatous lesion"?

Dear Sir FNAC result "Smear consists of fibrofatty tissue with few lymphocytes and polymorphs suggestive of inflammed lipomatous lesion"?

May need core biopsy: FNAC is often inadequate to make a proper diagnosis, especially if you suspect cancer. if you have a tumor, you should go and see a good surgeon who deals with cancer. He may do a core biopsy which gives more tissue than a FNAC. I am afraad you will need a repeat biopsy but seek a second opinion for finding out what you have wrong

On 12/18, I am having a 2.2cm enhancing lipomatous nodule superior to the a/c joint removed. It is subcu-above muscle. What is recovery time? Can I play hockey 3 days later? Can I scuba in 7 days?

On 12/18, I am having a 2.2cm enhancing lipomatous nodule superior to the a/c joint removed. It is subcu-above muscle. What is recovery time? Can I play hockey 3 days later? Can I scuba in 7 days?

Will need rest: You will need some recovery time after the procedure. Although it sounds like you are having a very minor procedure, direct trauma to the area within 3 days is probably not wise. Ask your surgeon for specific post operative limitations.

Ct findings 6.1x3.7x2.1cm intramuscular lipomatous gastrocnemius mass. Likely lipoma. MRI advised. Was told do nothing unless worsens. I'm Concerned?

Ct findings 6.1x3.7x2.1cm intramuscular lipomatous gastrocnemius mass. Likely lipoma. MRI advised. Was told do nothing unless worsens. I'm Concerned?

Get MRI to be sure: MRI is better than CT to characterize soft tissue masses. IV contrast would likely be used for lipoma analysis. These statements assume the patient is a candidate for MRI and contrast. Lipomas are benign, but it is nice to almost completely exclude a rare liposarcoma--less than 3 in a million people diagnosed in a year. MRI along with a benign history and presentation does this.

Hypertrophied septum with grade 1 diastolic dysfunction-what is the implication?

Hypertrophied septum with grade 1 diastolic dysfunction-what is the implication?

Take care: That does not necessarily mean anything grave at present but that depends on how much the septum is hypertrophied compared to the other walls. At any rate it should be followed regularly with echo probably every 12 months and your blood pressure should be kept in very good control at all times.

Meaning of left ventricle is prominent with mild hypertrophy of interventricular septum and risk thereof.

Meaning of left ventricle is prominent with mild hypertrophy of interventricular septum and risk thereof.

Hypertrophic Heart: Hypertrophy means the walls of ventricle are enlarged and may be encroaching on the inside chamber of the ventricle. This can inhibit outflow of blood to the body, which can be serious. There is medication which can help this, and sometimes a cardiac procedure may be necessary. It is very important to maintain good follow up with your doctor for appropriate treatment.

What does this mean?? Gentle deviation of the nasal septum to the right. Bilateral inferior turbinate hypertrophy, likely artifactually accentuated by

Swollen nose: It means that your nasal septum is likely normal and the obstruction is from swelling of the nasal turbinate- If the swelling is seasonal, then allergy is the likely cause. If it is not, then one need to consider other probabilities as well. Since you didn't complete the sentence accentuated by. ..., can't answer this part of your question.

Heart failure: This is typically seen on echocardiogram in patients who have or will develop heart failure, most often as result of coronary artery disease. You need to see a cardiologist for further testing asap!

I got X-ray done. S shaped deviation of nasal septum and turbinate hypertrophy detected. Is it a problem. How can it harm. Is it necessary to visit ent.

I got X-ray done. S shaped deviation of nasal septum and turbinate hypertrophy detected. Is it a problem. How can it harm. Is it necessary to visit ent.

Treatment may help: If you are having significant nasal obstruction which makes it difficult to breathe at night especially and you do not respond to nasal sprays or other medical treatment, you might want to see an ENT to decide if 1. If this is clinically significant, 2. All medical options have been exhausted, and 3. If surgery might help.

Have bilateral concha bullosa on left, hypertrophied right inferior turbinate, deviated nasal septum.2 swollen nodes on front nd bck of right ear. Why?

Have bilateral concha bullosa on left, hypertrophied right inferior turbinate, deviated nasal septum.2 swollen nodes on front nd bck of right ear. Why?

Anatomy: Concha bullosae are enlarged middle turbinates, which is a variant type of anatomy, causing nasal obstruction. Enlarged inferior turbinates also cause difficulty breathing. A deviated septum is a crooked divider between the right and left nostrils, also causing difficulty breathing. Swollen nodes might be a reaction to a recent or chronic infection. See an otolaryngologist for evaluation.
