Pain At Night In The Femoral Groin Artery Is It Serious
Had heart cath through both femoral arteries two days ago for svt. Now severe cramping from right groin through thigh. Should I be concerned?
Yes: It sounds like you had an electrophysiology study not a heart cath. Regardless, there could be vascular trauma that could lead to clots forming in the thigh veins. You should go and get evaluated along with an ultrasound of the leg vasculature to be safe. ...Read more
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
"Artery"?: 4 structures pass through the "groin area" (inguinal region). From lateral to medial, they are the femoral nerve, femoral artery, femoral vein, & a lymphatic vessel, which is separated from the vein by an empty space. Don't assume that whatever this is is from the artery. If you're concerned, see your doctor for a hands-on exam. HealthTap & Dr. Google are not enough for your case. ...Read more
I have a twitch in the femoral artery area of the groin. Sometimes it shoots down my leg. Only seem to notice it when laying down. I have had a few angiograms and a star closure clip in that area. Could this be from the surgeries or something new? What do
Shooting / sharp pain on the inside of left thigh and left groin (where leg meets abdomen). Feels like pain runs along femoral artery.
Sharp pain in groin: Go get this checked out. Your autoimmune disease (RA) and medications mean that you are at risk for more unusual things than the general population. Maybe it's a simple hernia or a pulled muscle. But there are many other possibilities, like venous blood clot. Call your doctor. If S/he can't see you, go to the ER. ...Read more

What to do if my friend tried to kill herself last night by cutting her femoral artery in her thigh with a razor blade. Bleed to death from cutting her femoral artery?
Narrowing: A high velocity in the femoral arteries is an ultrasound finding that suggests a possible narrowing in the artery. Whether or not this is significant depends on your symptoms and the blood pressure within your legs, often reported as the ankle-brachial index (abi). Discuss further with a board-certified vascular surgeon. ...Read more

Periph. Art. Dis.: Yes & No. Atherosclerosis is slowed by using meds. Such as antiplatelets (aspirin etc etc), potent statins (atorva., rosuva, .etc);ACEI's (lisinopril etc) or ARB's;some betablockers, and other meds such as cilastozol etc. A complete or high grade occlusion however will need either antegrade or retrograde mechanical revascularization as well as meds. If in area seek my practice out as we can help ...Read more

If a tourniquet is applied less than a minute after a gsw causes a lacerated femoral artery, will they be stable enough to get to an ER 30 minutes away?
Arterial trauma: When a major blood vessel is severed, the muscles in the wall allow it to spam down and slow the flow. A complete break allows the vessel to do this better than a partial tear. Compress the artery at the nearest bony point towards the heart using fingers or a tourniquet and get to er fast. After major trauma, reaching the er within an hour saves lives and limbs. ...Read more

MAP > 60 mmHg: The mean arterial pressure (MAP) is, at least, > 60 mmhg if one can palpate (feel) the femoral pulse (in each groin). The vessel can be felt just below the groin (inguinal) ligament. In the term "pressure point, " I'm uncertain what you mean. The point of palpability? Please inform... ...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 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
