Bad blood draw yesterday (venipuncture/8vials). Immediately:red/blue, v.swollen&painful. Now:flat, hard lump, bruise. Do ruptured veins heal? Just a leak?

Hematoma: The venipuncture for blood draw leaked and caused a hematoma outside of the vein or in the vein wall or both and this will heal in most cases without any consequences. I recommend ice in the first 2 days, several times a day (15 min each time) and switch to topical heat on day 3-4 and take ibuprofen as tolerated. ...Read more

Would dialysis using a permanent catheter in the only patent left phimoral vein rule out transplantation on it? Had aneurysmal rupture on the right.

Would dialysis using a permanent catheter in the only patent left phimoral vein rule out transplantation on it? Had aneurysmal rupture on the right.

Very tricky: Transplantation requires an adequate vein near an adequate artery and the bladder.

These technical details need to be carefully reviewed with a transplant surgeon in advance of transplantation. Most of the time, it is still possible. Best of luck. ...Read more

Possible vascular injury? Fell and ruptured peroneal tendons 1month ago. The veins next to the tendons now appear swollen and much larger than before.

My right jugular vein bulges (bubble) above collar bone when I strain. Is there concern of rupture if I continue exercising (crossfit and weights)?

My right jugular vein bulges (bubble) above collar bone when I strain. Is there concern of rupture if I continue exercising (crossfit and weights)?

Normal: Neck veins distend when we lie with our head lower than our heart or when we strain. With straining, the pressure within the chest increases and the blood flow through the neck veins decrease resulting in them enlarging. This is normal. Why you notice only one side is probably just anatomical variation. ...Read more
