Mid LAD Shows chronic total occlusion with faint filling of distal LAD seen through collaterals, (LMCA, LCX, OMs, RCA are normal) Pls suggest Stent/Med?

Mid LAD Shows chronic total occlusion with faint filling of distal LAD seen through collaterals, (LMCA, LCX, OMs, RCA are normal) Pls suggest Stent/Med?

Cannot stent: You prob can't stent your mid-LAD as it is already 100% occluded. Good that you have collaterals to feed that downstream muscle. You should be on a statin med (pravastatin, etc) to prevent further atherosclerosis. Add a blood pressure med like Lisinopril if you have high BP. And use meds for angina, but only if you trigger it w/ activity. A daily aspirin is recommended. Any heart attacks? ...Read more

My left lateral incisor had a filling this morning. It hurts terribly bad now, even worse than a root canal. Is this normal?

My left lateral incisor had a filling this morning. It hurts terribly bad now, even worse than a root canal. Is this normal?

Pain is not normal: I assume that the decay was right next to the nerve and in the cleaning process the filling penetrated dental pulp. In this case root canal therapy is warranted. See your dentist for exam and x-ray.

What does 'prominent osseous spur that projects laternally bet left middle and inf turbinate to contact the lateral wall of left mid nasalcavity' mean?

What does 'prominent osseous spur that projects laternally bet left middle and inf turbinate to contact the lateral wall of left mid nasalcavity' mean?

Septal spur: The most common osseous spur that projects between the middle and inferior turbinate arise from the bony septum. If this spur is obstructing the nasal cavity and causing difficulty in breathing through that side of the nose, a septoplasty can be performed by an ENT surgeon with good results. ...Read more

Wow....: The only way to see this is by bronchoscopy or surgery..... Your should ask the doctor performing the study. Petechia are usually not good and can represent many different problems. Can be either mild or serious. If found on the pharynx they can be a symptom of strep throat. An ear, nose and throat doctor can clear up the considerable possibilities. ...Read more

I had ankle ligament lateral reconstruction in mid-january. My ankle and calf just began to swell for no reason. Should I be worried?

Something is wrong.: Ankles and calves do not just begin to swell for no reason. There is always a reason. It could be mechanical, structural or vascular. You need to have your ankle evaluated to determine the most likely cause. ...Read more

I have an anterior osteophytic ridge that pushed against my esophagus, effacing the mid and right lateral lumen. An ENT recommended surgery. Should i?

I have an anterior osteophytic ridge that pushed against my esophagus, effacing the mid and right lateral lumen. An ENT recommended surgery. Should i?

Maybe: In my 23 years of practice I have operated on two people with osteophytes so large that it impaired their swallowing. I have probably seen hundreds of x-rays showing enlarged osteophytes causing an impression upon the esophagus in patients with swallowing difficulty. In almost all cases we were able to come up with other treatments to help their swallowing. I strongly recommend a second opinion. ...Read more

I have a nodule at mid lateral region of my thigh. Pain on palpation. Tender after stand and walk a lot. What is it?

Could be bad: Nodules or masses that are tender need to be evaluated by a physician. I assume the nodule is new and a new tender nodule will at the minimum need close follow up and at the maximum perhaps imaging or excisional biopsy. ...Read more

Mri reports there is a rupture of the mid to proximal aspect of the ACL w/ lateral displacement of fibers in torn distal stump. Is this a full tear?

Swelling from mid calf to ankle. Missing hair. Area often very cold. ABI was normal. Feel pulse on lateral (peroneal) side when leg elevated. Plz help?

Swelling from mid calf to ankle. Missing hair. Area often very cold. ABI was normal. Feel pulse on lateral (peroneal) side when leg elevated. Plz help?

Vascular vs. Allergy: The first suspicion raised by your symptoms is vascular compromise. One cannot normally feel a genuine pulse on the peroneal (fibular or lateral) side. Missing hair and cold lower legs is most pathognomonic of vascular insufficiency. Are you sure about the normal ABI? Other things which could cause these symptoms include Autoimmune disorders and possibly chronic phlebitis. Best get it checked ...Read more

Small lateral malleolus fx from 4-2012; ankle pain up to mid calf (burn/ache/etc). Ortho said? Peroneal nerve entrap? & could do surgery. Now or wait?

Small lateral malleolus fx from 4-2012; ankle pain up to mid calf (burn/ache/etc). Ortho said? Peroneal nerve entrap? & could do surgery. Now or wait?

Wait: Did you have Emg/ ncv's of your lower extremities? If you did and it confirms peroneal nerve entrapment then release may be helpful. This is a fairly unusual nerve entrapment syndrome, however, and unless the pain is worsening I would wait and see if it doesn't improve. Also, regional pain syndrome (RSD) can cause similar symptoms and should be ' ruled out'.best of luck! ...Read more

In the course of...: Sexual activity many illnesses, diseases and injury can occur. This scenario, in the absence of other symptoms mentioned, seems most likely to me from strained skeletal muscles.

I don't know: Great question for all of us dieters everywhere!

What is the difference between onlays and fillings?

Difference: The difference between an inlay and a filling is the materials used, the time required to fix the tooth, durability and cost. Once the decay and/or old filling are removed the dentist can either place filling material (composite resin or amalgam) or an inlay (porcelain, gold, or specially oven hardened composite). ...Read more

My temporary filling is really hurting what can I do?

My temporary filling is really hurting what can I do?

It is not normal: And you want this problem resolved before you get the final restoration. If this goes away, 6-8 weeks, then tooth is recovering and getting back to normal. The transition from dull aching pain to constant, sharp and severe pain is a bad sign. There is a chance you are going to need an endodontic treatment. See your dentist for re-evaluation and treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it necessary to replace old fillings with crowns eventually?

Onlay vs crown: Another option for a big failing filling can be an onlay instead of a crown. It allows for a more conservative procedure. Think of an onlay like a puzzle piece that just replaces the broken down portion of the tooth, leaving the healthy part intact. ...Read more

Can cavity fillings be re-done?
