Can, partially occlusive chronic thrombosis of lef saphenous in the calf and small saphenous vein proximal and mid calf, cause deep vein thrombosis?
Result of venous duplex scan for dvt. Evidence of peroneal veins with partially occlusive non acute dvt. Evidence of recanalisation and both paired veins are patent and small due to the DVT present?
What causes thrombosis of the superficial dorsal vein of the penis? (The main prominent penis vein)
Blocking blood flow: Use of "cock rings" , cords, or other types of devices that block the flow of blood through the vein for a prolonged time is the most probable cause. There are also blood clotting disorders such as anti cardiolipin antibodies that iincrease the risk of clotting. Inflammation from an infection can also cause clotting/thrombosis. ...Read more
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
After doppler scan result varicose veins both lower limbs greater saphenous system due to incompetence of perforators of bilateral knee no thrombosis
There may be help: Depending on how much of your portal vein is thrombosed and how bad your cirrhosis is, there is a chance that the vein can be reopened and a TIPS procedure be performed. An MRI is usually done to help evaluate the possibility. Have your doctor refer you to an Interventional Radiologist who performs these procedures. Check out www.sirweb.org for more info on TIPS and portal hypertension. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Report says:partially occlusive chronic thrombosis of lef saphenous in the calf and small saphenous vein proximal and mid calf. Please explain?Thanks.
Another outcome: Could be nothing, could be a pulmonary embolism (from you can get pulmonary hypertension), could be post thrombotic syndrome. You can decrease you risk of getting post thrombotic syndrome by 50% if you wear 30-40 mm hg, knee high, graduated compression stockings for 2 years after having a dvt. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Few things: Recent surgery, prolonged immobilization, long distance traveling, cancer, and smoking cause traditional DVTs. If bilateral veins are compressed, an organ like the uterus can compress the veins but you will probably suffer from large fibroids . Blood disorders or other abnormal masses can also cause a mechanical compression at a higher location than both those veins. Emboli can reach both lungs. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What does 'diffuse severe attenuation of the left vertebral artery" mean on a neck ct scan with contrast? Could it be cause of previous spontaneous arterial brachial clot or subclavian clot?
Arteriosclerotic internal carotid & vertebro basilar arteries predominantly the left vertebrobasilar segment appearing tortuous with slight prominence?
Ultrasound shows features of chronic total radial artery occlusion with collateral flow in ulnar artery. Can this affect pregnancy.
Not likely BUT...: If the radial artery occlusion is an isolated finding, perhaps from an old injury, then there should be no risk to the pregnancy. However, if you are, or were, a very heavy cigarette smoker and especially if you are diabetic then your radial artery problem could be a symptom of a more general vascular pathology which could have a negative impact on your pregnancy. ...Read more
What is the difference between unilateral superficial vein swelling and collateral superficial vein swelling?
Difference?: Unilateral vein swelling would be dilated veins in one area compared no non dilated veins in the opposite area (i.e. R leg and L leg). Collateral veins usually form around a blockage such as a DVT. In actuality, there may not be any difference between the two. ...Read more
My cardiac MRI showed persistent left sided superior vena cava drains into a dilated coronary sinus w/ mild dilation of the main pulmonary artery?
Mostly a normal: Variant. Every fetus has one, but in most it involutes before birth. 0.3% of the general population has one. It is the most common variation of the thoracic venous system. Left svc draining into coronary sinus is expected 90% of the time. Discuss with your doctor the significance in your case of the mild dilation of the pulmonary artery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor 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
