Mild Ectasia Of The Aorta
What does "minimal ectasia
versus tiny aneurysm of the P1 segment of the left posterior cerebral artery" mean??
Your cardiologist ca: Since this is a heart related matter, your family doctor should guide you and arrange a consultation with a cardiologist. Right heart can be dilated for any reasons that cause pulmonary hypertension such as chronic or acute lung disease. I would want to be sure there is no pulmonary emboli(blood clots in your lungs). ...Read more
I had CT/Angio of neck they found minimal aortic arch calcification, mild ectasia of the proximal left vertebral artery over a focal segment.
Leakage: The aortic valve, when closed, prevents blood from rushing back into the left ventricle from which it has just been expelled by contraction of that chamber during systole. When there is some form of abnormality to the valve there may be leakage back into the left ventricle during diastole. Therefore, the blood is regurgitating back. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
Mild aneurysmal dilation of the distal abdominal aorta, this showed up on an unrelated mri, how common is this? History of cad
Rupture?: The hydro elastoma is a filament that is attached to the mitral valve and other structures of the left heart that has the potential to rupture and embolize, meaning that remnants and particles of it could move through the blood stream potentially block flow. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Radiology.What is a small focal of cortical atrophy in the mid left cerebellar hemisphere peripherally with mild widening of the adjacent sulci?
What does it mean when "minimal ectasia versus tiny aneurysm of the P1 segment of the left posterior cerebral artery?"
My mri shows hypolastic right vertibal artery and mild irreularity along the bilaeral segment of internal carotid artery?
Low value finding.: Why? 2 reasons: 1. Spacial resolution of MRI (even more so than CT) is very low compared to the complexity of the anatomic structures named & 2. Arteries are not being visualized, only a contrast agent within the blood inside the artery. Get & study the image data yourself; compare with Netter anatomy illustrations. Irregularity is c/w artery Ds. Good quality echo of carotid walls far better. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pulmonary stenosis: Mild to moderate pulmonary valve stenosis generally has a good prognosis. Mild pulmonary valve stenosis usually does not progress, but moderate pulmonary valve stenosis may worsen over time and require surgery. Treatment is generally highly successful allowing people to live high quality lives provided that they do not have other comorbid problems. ...Read more
MRCP "Persistent mild dilation of the central intrahepatic duct. There are areas of mild narrowing & irregularity of the intrahepatic ducts & proximal common duct. No dilation of common bile duct. Gallbladder sludge is present." What causes this?
Nonspecific: I believe that the ductal findings are nonspecific. Sludge in the gall bladder can cause abdominal distress and indigestion. A gastroenterologist would sit down with the radiologist and review the images and decide whether more imaging studies like an MRI or liver biopsy are advisable depending upon your symptoms or lack of symptoms. ...Read more
How serious is subaortic vsd (1.1 cm)? The mitral and tricuspid valves show redundant leaflets with evidences of prolapse and the left ventricle is slightly dilated.
It varies: Mild stenosis may casue no problems. Severe stenosis causes the pressure to increase in the left atrium, the lungs and eventually the right side of the heart. The left atrium enlarges in response to the higher pressure and the likelihood of atrial arrhythmias increases. Fluid can accumulate in the lungs causing shortness of breath and exercise intolerance. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: By definition coarctation of the aorta is a abnormality of vascular embryology. At birth flow is adequate for the limited activity i the new born and early toddler years, but as children age, their growing bodies and activity out grows the narrowed aorta's ability to supply enough blood fast enough to keep up. ...Read more
