Artery (Definition)

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

Aneurysm and narrowing off the arteries? What does this mean?

Aneurysm and narrowing off the arteries? What does this mean?

Combination: Aneurysm is an enlarged blood vessel.
Frequently there are intraluminal thrombus that fills the lumen to about the normal vessel size.

Narrowing of the associated vessels (iliac for example below aorta) may have atherosclerotic plaque and narrowing as a part of the total disease process. ...Read more

My side hurts and I get nauseous easy I have a splenetic artery aneurysm and I have a 2mm cyst on my spleendo I need to worry?

Need more info: Splenic artery aneurysms are usually fixed if they exceed 2 cm in diameter and are symptomatic. Therefore it depends on the size and whether your doctor thinks your pain is related to the aneurysm. Women of childbearing age should get splenic aneurysms fixed regardless of size since they can rupture in pregnancy. Asymptomatic aneurysms in a man or older woman may be watched unless they grow >3cm. ...Read more

Is splenic artery aneurysm something we inherit from family?

Probably: Aneurysms of the splenic artery are the 2nd-3rd most common intra-abdominal aneurysms, and most common visceral artery aneurysm. The most common associated risk factors are portal hypertension and multiple pregnancies. Incidence is 4x higher in females than males. ...Read more

Why is it that artery aneurysms are worse than vein aneurysms?

Why is it that artery aneurysms are worse than vein aneurysms?

A splenic artery aneurysm of 19mm or 22mm be fixed or just watched?

Depends: The two sizes stated may have different recommendations - size alone will affect which one may need surgery. Hormonal status (i.e. Pre vs post menopausal) can affect decision as well. Additional characteristics of the aneurysm such as calcifications also might impact determination. For the one less than 2 cm and if asymptomatic, an observational strategy is likely. ...Read more

What's it mean to have femoral artery aneurysm?

What's it mean to have femoral artery aneurysm?

Abnormal swelling: There are 2 basic types of femoral aneurysms- pseudoaneurysms- frequently caused by angiograms, and true aneurysms. Pseudoaneurysm treatment depends on the size, but should be assessed by a vascular surgeon. True aneurysms are treated depending on size, and have the risk of clotting off or tossing debris down the leg. They are also associated with a higher risk of aneurysms of the aorta. ...Read more

What can be done for a splenic artery aneurysm?

What can be done for a splenic artery aneurysm?

Many treatments: Common in women who have delivered children. Usually asymptotic and incidentally discovered. Most experts agree that an aneurysm under 2cm in size is of low risk to rupture. However, it is important to characterize the "aneurysm" correctly and be evaluated by a vascular expert. Coil embolization, surgical ligation with splenectomy, or monitoring may be reasonable. Cta imaging would best. ...Read more

9mm splenic artery aneurysm is something to worry about?

Possibly: Most splenic artery aneurysms are not at any significant risk of rupture & bleeding until they reach around 20 mm so most vascular surgeons recommend following them annually until they reach that size, then repairing them at that time (most often with embolization or stenting rather than surgery). Occasionally an aneurysm will be symptomatic or grow fast & repair would be needed sooner than 20 mm. ...Read more

What are the most common symptoms of femoral artery aneurysm?

None: Usually none unless it leaks or bursts and then it's very painful, there is large possibly pulsating lump, and, in the worst case, your blood pressure drops with faintness. Prior to rupture, one may discover an unusually easy to feel pulsation in the crease in the groin which is painless. There's normally a strong pulse there so distinguishing it from an aneurysm may be hard without ultrasound. ...Read more

What could you tell me about celiac artery aneurysms and repairs?

What could you tell me about celiac artery aneurysms and repairs?

They are uncommon.: The celiac axis (or artery) is one of the shortest named arteries. It branches very quickly into the hepatic and splenic arteries. Because it is so short, it is uncommon for it to develop an aneurysm.
They can occur and when their size is appropriate, will require open surgical repair, with an interposition bypass to replace the aneurysmal artery. It is a big operation_ should be expertly done. ...Read more

What does redemonstration of a patent splenic artery aneurysm maximum dimension on contrast enhanced images is 19mm mean?

What does redemonstration of a patent splenic artery aneurysm maximum dimension on contrast enhanced images is 19mm mean?

Little bulge: "Redemmonstration" means it's been seen before, hopefully a while back, because that means it's stable and not growing.

The aneurysm is a bulge in the artery to your spleen. This can rupture, which is sometimes fatal. 19mm isn't very big, but it's big enough to do something about it. We now have endovascular repair methods, so you wouldn't need surgery. But I recommend you take care of it! ...Read more

I underwent Celiac artery aneurysm embolization by coil occlusion. It was successful but can I suffer complications later? I'm 44 and concerned

Isolated celiac: artery aneurysm is a rare condition. You should be happy that embolization was successful. I don't think you will suffer any remote complications from the procedure itself. Major concern would be development of any other aneurysms in other parts of your body, such as brain or any genetic defect. It seems unlikely that this celiac artery aneurysm was caused by atherosclerosis. ...Read more

I have a small brain aneurysm in the anterior communicating artery, I'm scared of coiling, or anything more invasive, I'm hoping for some opinions?

Be informed: Whether or not to treat the aneurysm depends on several factors including the size of the aneurysm and whether or not you have other health problems. The two best options for the aneurysm are coiling or open surgery. The aneurysm may be more amenable to one or the other depending on size and geometry. In experienced hands, both procedures are pretty safe, although not completely risk free. ...Read more

Units?: I suspect there may be an error, 11x 0.9 cm aneurysm would be extremely large and likely would have ruptured. Studies have shown that aneurysms of mean size 1.5 cm (0.3 to 4.0 cm) did not rupture over the course of eight years. Symptomatic aneurysms, enlarging aneurysms or those exceeding 2 cm should be treated. ...Read more

I have a calisfied splenic artery aneurysm found by X-ray for other problem is this hereditary that my adult children will have it?

Not the calcificatio: The risk factors for splenic artery aneurysms are thought to be high "portal vein" pressures (from liver damage) & multiple pregnancies. Neither of these conditions per se is genetic, although many risk factors could have a familial basis (ie, high blood pressure & fertility). If this were hereditary, then your parents, grandparents, uncles/aunts, & siblings would have suffered. If so, then screen ...Read more
