Dr. Joel Gotvald answered:

How can I have a ultrasound in the lower extremity that revealed venous insufficiency in the saphenous vein but no varicose vein?

Saphenous vein Weak

Venous_insufficiency
A vein ultrasound can reveal early vein dysfunction in the saphenous vein (venous insufficiency with valve dysfunction) before it becomes clinically evident. The most common visible physical finding with saphenous reflux is either varicose veins or leg swelling. If the study is done early on in the condition before the dysfunction is severe, you can see the insufficiency without varicose veins.

Causes of lower extremity swelling in someone who injects dilaudid in her thighs?

See a doctor

Paronychia
This may or may not be related to your injection of medication. Things to consider are a cellulitis (skin infection), blood clot in the deep veins of your leg, or just inflammation/clotting of the superficial veins in your leg. Please have yourself evaluated by a doctor ASAP.

Dr. Tracy A. Berg answered:

Can I bypass lower extremity with fasciotomy?

Sometimes

Extremity-foot
There are occasions where a vascular surgical bypass and fasciotomy are performed at the same time, vascular trauma, acute ischemic leg. There are occasions where bypass and fasciotomy are done separately. They are not the same procedure, so can not be used interchangeably. Fasciotomy allows the leg to swell with less risk for muscle and nerve damage, less risk for amputation. Be well.

What type of lower extremity pain is associated with ovarian cancer?

Not a common feature

Ovarian_cancer
Leg pain is not a usual feature of ovarian cancer. A person with ovarian cancer may develop deep vein thrombosis in the legs and have pain, but that is not common. Unfortunately ovarian cancers do not cause specific symptoms, at least not in early stages.

What is bilateral lower extremity length dependent sensory polyneuropathy? And what causes it?

BLELDSM made simple

Blood_glucose_level
In sensory polyneuropathy, sensory nerve fibers that carry info about temperature, touch, pain, & position are damaged & can't transmit signals. Length-dependent means limbs furthest away are 1st to be affected, as in both lower legs. Common causes include diabetes, nutrient deficiency, connective tissues disorders, infectious diseases, or toxins. Blood tests can rule out most of these causes.

I have Nontraumatic compartment syndrome of lower extremity is this something that could be corrected with a laparoscopic surgery?

Fasciotomy procedure

Open-uri20130310-20083-1cjbld6
The surgical procedure for people with compartment syndrome is known as a fasciotomy and this may be done as an open procedure, or with assistance from an endoscope. Prior to the procedure you will also need to have testing done to confirm your intercompartmental pressure to see if you are a good candidate for the fasciotomy. Conservative treatment options should be exhausted before surgery.
