Right Lateral Mid Trache 7mm Filling
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

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

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?
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

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
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
