Peak Systolic Velocity In The Carotid Artery
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
How bad is tricuspid valve annular systolic velocity of 11.9 cm/sec? Peak regurgitation velocity 2.31 m/sec R atrial pressure 3 mmHg.
Bilateral high flow in common carotid artery and internal carotid artery with normal end diastolic velocity and no stenosis. Is this normal?
How high is high?: Increased flow without stenosis can happen if the cardiac output is very high or there is tortuosity if the arteries Generally don't worry until systolic velocity is over 200 cm/sec and even then it is probably ok with normal diastolic velocity why did you get the test? IF you are asymptomtic I would not worry too much ...Read more

Echocardiogram: The findings are not normal but have to be judged in context of your mitral valve repair. The abnormalities described are not hemodynamically significant and won't impact your performance status. I can understand why your cardiologist is reassured by your echocardiogram. ...Read more
Elderly Hypertensive: Carotid stenosis usually occurs secondary to longstanding atherosclerosis. Risk factors include high blood pressure, diabetes, and coronary artery disease. It takes time for atherosclerotic plaques to develop, so most patients with carotid artery stenosis are older adults. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Doppler Ultrasound: Ultrasound has proven to be cost-effective and quite accurate in determining the degree of narrowing in the carotid artery. Many vascular surgeons, including myself, solely rely on it to decide whether someone needs an operation. Mra is not so good and over-estimates the actual degree of narrowing. I would not rely on its findings to decide on operating. As mentioned a cta is much better. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Chronic radial artery occlusion. Pain in hand arterial doppler shows interosseos artery enlarged. Ulnar artery responsbile for profusion. Advice?
Can you you explain peak systolic velocity in right internal carotid artery 61.9 and 80.7 in left internal carotid?
Sounds normal: These velocities sound normal. As your carotids narrow, the velocity of blood increases. Sort of like when you put your thumb over the end of a hose. The water moves faster and goes farther. In many labs, the cutoff is 125cm/s. Below this, there may be some narrowing, stenosis, but it is not significant. Discuss the results with your doctor. ...Read more

Is this to worry about? Cardiac echo said: diastolic parameters borderline abnormal. Lateral peak velocity 14cm/second, medial 6cm/second.
Penile doppler result: cavernous arteries normal.Peak systolic velocity( left:22.61cm/s right:22.63cm/s). Am i impotent ?
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

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
