Radial Artery Thrombosis
Chronic radial artery occlusion. Pain in hand arterial doppler shows interosseos artery enlarged. Ulnar artery responsbile for profusion. Advice?
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
Plaque removal: Remote endarterectomy is a less invasive.Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes and No: Coronary artery bypass requires some form of conduit for bypass. Superficial veins from the lower limbs have been used for bypass. Smaller arteries from the underside of the chest wall have been used in favor of veins for the left side of the heart. Early enlarged varicose veins can still be used for bypass; however more advanced wall bulges and wall aneurysms Prohibit use of the varicosed veins. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
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

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
Arterial doppler indicates that brachial, ulnar and intraosseous artery are of low resistive pattern. S this normal. Radial artery occluded due to clot?
Unusual: A peripheral artery should have a high resistant pattern on doppler exam. A low resistance may suggest a connection with a vein, arterial venous (av) malformation or av fistula. An injury to the arm may have caused occlusion of the radial artery and also an av fistula. Luckily the ulnar artery is usually the main vessel supplying the hand. Further studies may be needed to define the anatomy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
The 2 vertebral arteries arise from the left and right subclavian arteries and supply the brainstem and cerebellum. Dissection is rare (2.5/100, 000), affect women to men 3:1 and can cause stroke in people
Have chronic radial artery occlusion. Having pain. When is coronary bypass done. Good flow in ulnar artery. Advice.
When needed: Having occlude radial artery no major problem ulnar art is there as for pain is it chest pain? Then u should be w/u for that with ur cardiologist with stress test or other , there are other options other than ur radial art for bypass ima r or l saph vein r or l but neede to c ur dr for DX and rec"s. ...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
Depends: When blood flow is sufficiently reduced by a greater than 70% blockage of an artery or arteries, to the point of permanent damage or weaknening of the heart muscle, or when a plaque ruptures and a blood clot repeatedly forms with resulting blockage of blood flow, then an artery needs to be stented, or bypassed. ...Read more
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
If doppler arterial ultrasound says ulnar artery is supplying flow and collateral flow is good . What is embolism with branch occlusion.
I will try again: There are several cause of arterial occlusions. There are degrees of arterial blockage. If a clot moves- embolize s it can obstruct multiple vessels and branches causing more tissue to be under circulated-ischemic. The remaining question is why the radial clotted: embolus, trauma, needle sticks, thoracic outlet and aneurysm. Need exam. Doppler helps define the location but not the cause. ...Read more
