Thyroid Venous Hum
"Normal systemic venous and pulmonary venus return.The SVC and IVC are of normal caliber.Normal pulmonary venous anatomy."Does aboveMRI rules out clot?
Most likely your OK: Can discuss with your physicianGet a more detailed answer ›
Focal scleritis,global motility disorder,mitral valve regurgitation & stenosis, tricuspid valve regurgitation, paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, venous insufficiency, Raynaud, hypothyroidism, epilepsy, small/large fiber neuropathy. Related somehow?
Thyroid swelling. Ultrasound heterogenous thyroid parynchema with hypervascularity. Blood test-normal tsh t4 t3 (liothyronine) etc but >1300 TPo antibodies?
Hard to say: Ive yet to have anyone NOT have elevated TPo but I havent sent many. The standard answer would be that it likley is GRAVES disease starting but if there arent a lot of symptoms and the labs are normal you wouldnt give treatment. Retesting if symptoms and at about every 3 months. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Abnormal lung veins: The pulmonary veins are the vessels that normally bring blood with oxygen back to the heart from the lungs. Supracardiac tapvr is when these veins drain to the innominate vein which eventually brings that blood back to the right side of the heart rather than the left. This requires surgical repair. Babies born with this usually have much lower than normal oxygen levels and appear blue. ...Read more
Starling mechanism: You mean how does venous pressure regulate cardiac output.similar to the Starling mechanism-by increasing pre load. Up to a certain point cardiac output is directionally proportional to venous pressure assuming that everything else is the same such as the after load or cardiac contractility ...Read more
What could be the cause of jugular vein distention, hypertension, fast heart rate upon motion with normal cardiac echo, ekg, and thyroid?
Does a right atrium dilated, RV pressure of 25-30 mHg, IVC dynamics 5-10 mmHg subjective possibly of pulmonary hypertension or heart failure?
If accurate, only: mildly ?ed. RA ~10 mmHg, RV systolic ~25 mmg Hg generally ~optimally healthy; similar to the values stated. Thus RA enlargement likely: mismeasurement (common, not rare; study image data yourself), marked tricuspid regurgitation, congenital variant, atrial muscle problem [eg advanced arterial disease in RA arteries; (lumens too small to see by angiography) producing RA ischemia/fibrosis], etc. ...Read more
Thyroid Ultrasound heterogenous thyroid parynchema with hypervascularity. Blood test normal tsh t4 t3 (liothyronine) etc but >1300 TPo antibodies?have Hypo symptoms
Elevated: TPO levels are associated with autoimmune thryroid disease/thryoiditis, for example Hashimoto disease. The thyroid US findings are also consistent with thyroiditis. Talk to your doc about next steps. ...Read more
Diagnosed with deep venous insufficiency-left leg.Spontaneous,,phasic,augmentable,compressible, REFLUX with val salva maneuver. What does this mean?
Abnormal septal motion in ventricle, EF 60-65% small LA and LV normal in thickness gd systolic function and sinus tachy 120bpm pulmonary Hypertension?
Wow,: Do u want 2b an md? The pulmonary artery takes the blood (that gave up the oxygen to the tissues in the body) from your right heart to the lungs. Oxygenated blood returns to the left heart via the 4 pulmonary veins. This is called the pulmonary circulation ( see google) pulmonary (in the p.Artery) and the tricuspid (between the 2 chambers of the right heart control the flow in this system. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
US and Doppler: Doppler ultrasound is used to determine if there is retrograde flow in valved vein segments, i.e. between the junction of a superficial vein and a deep vein,, 2) between valved segments within a deep vein (deep vein reflux), 3) between valved segments of superficial veins (segmental venous reflux). B mode US compression techniques look for dvt and distal augmentation to confirm flow upstream ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Arteries and veins: Systolic pressure is the pressure in your artery during during cardiac contraction as blood rapidly flows into the arteries . It measures to certain degree the elasticity of the vessel . Diastolic pressure is the pressure after contraction when no active flow is going and measures the resting tone of the artery . CVP is the venous pressure closest to the heart or the vena cavae. ...Read more
Any rarer causes 4 breathlessness/chest pressure when tired/sleepy? Basic tests OK (echo, spiro, CXR, TSH, CBC, sugar). Hormonal? autoimmune? brain?
Muscle disorder?: Since these tests didn't show evidence for lung or cardiovascular disease and your symptoms occur only when you are tired, one needs to rule out a muscle disorder such as myasthenia gravis, certain kinds of mitochrondrial abnormalities and etc. Your best bet would be going some place like an university medical center or the Mayo Clinic. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
