Occlusion And Stenosis Of Carotid Artery Without Cerebral Infarction
2 things: Carotid artery stenosis means narrowing of the artery. Stroke is death or damage to brain due to circulatory issues. Many strokes (approx 1/3rd) are due to carotid artery disease. Although frequently connected, they are not the same. Many strokes occur without carotid stenosis. Many carotids are completely occluded (slowly) without resultant strokes. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
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

What is the probability of stroke with both mitral valve regurgitation and stenosis of carotid artery?
Carotid v. Mitral : The carotid disease if stenosed (>80%) warrants surgical consideration as risk of stroke is increased. The mr, if miderate to severe, poses a risk for congestive heart failure not stroke. If not allergic or have issues with platelet function, daily Aspirin 81mg is recommended for atherosclerosis. ...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
Does hypoplasia of the left anterior cerebral artery a1 segment increase risk for aneurysm or ischemic and hemorrhaging strokes?If yes why?
Diagnosed with total right radial artery occlusion with collateral flow in ulnar and intraosseous artery. Occlusion due thrombus. What does this mean?
Clot in your artery: A blood clot in your artery can occlude the blood flow to your hand, fortunately there are other arteries that can compensate for this. Unless you had trauma to that arm , you should see a hematologist or internal medicine doctor to be worked up to rule out a hypercoagulable condition. You should disclose this to your surgeon if you need surgery in the future ...Read more
Result of Angiography: three vessel coronary artery desease. preserved LV systolic function.what is best FOR MEAngioplasty or bypass operation?
Depends: If you're diabetic, CABG has better outcomes. If your LEFT MAIN coronary artery has >50% blockage, CABG has better outcomes. Aside from those 2 points, it depends on the skill of the team you have. If they do a lot of angioplasty, that would be preferred. If they don't but their surgical team is first rate, then that would be preferred. ...Read more

Middle LAD & circumflex artery are 100% blocked. Blockages, while severe, short in length.Both arteries receive collateral. Can angioplasty/stent help?
Basilar artery: Basilar artery is formed by the confluence of the vertebral arteries. Vertebral arteries are branches off the subclavian arteries. They supply the posterior aspect of brain and flow into the circle of willis. Vertebral occlusions can occur due to atherosclerotic disease and dissection from trauma. ...Read more
Anything that creates a blockage of the intestinal tract. You may think of the intestinal tract (stomach, small bowel, large bowel) as somewhat akin to a garden hose. If you kink the garden hose, or twist it, or block it inside, you have created an "obstruction". Most obstructions are a results of previous surgery and most of these ...Read more
When the blood supply of a tissue is compromised by whatever mechanism, the tissue will stop working and if blood flow is not restored, the tissue will eventually die ("infarct", both verb and noun). The clinical picture that runs with development of an infarct ("heart attack"; ...Read more
