Hi,,impressions show compression of L5 nerve root spinalcanal narrowing bilateral neural foraminal narrowing at L4 l5.diffuse posterior disc bulge at?

Sounds like a fairly: Typical read for a male over 50 years old. Many findings are normal for age and sex as described here. They may not be related to symptoms or may cause symptoms. That is why a careful history and physical exam must be done in conjunction with imaging studies to fully assess the issues presented by the patient. ...Read more

Is mitral stenosis a congenital defect or the narrowing of the mitral valve due to scaring?

Is mitral stenosis a congenital defect or the narrowing of the mitral valve due to scaring?

Can be either: The majority of mitral stenosis is a result of a previous strep infection which cause rheumatic fever. This begins a slowly progressive scarring of heart valves. The aortic and mitral valves most commonly. However there can be congenital mitral stenosis when the mitral valve may not form big enough during fetal development. ...Read more

What are subglottic stenosis symptoms?

Air flow restriction: Subglottic stenosis is a congenital or acquired narrowing of the subglottic airway. Congenital subglottic stenosis is a birth defect. Acquired subglottic stenosis generally follows as an after-effect of airway intubation. Mild forms can be asymptomatic. If there are symptoms, it can include: shortness of breath, cough, bronchitis or pneumonia. In worse cases, it can lead to airway obstruction. ...Read more

How does central lumbar canal stenosis differ from spinal stenosis?

How does central lumbar canal stenosis differ from spinal stenosis?

Specific vs general: Spinal stenosis is not specific to region (cervical vs thoracic vs lumbar). Spinal stenosis of lumbar spine is lumbar spinal stenosis. Central stenosis means the dural sac is compressed. This is as opposed to foraminal or lateral stenosis which usually affects the nerve roots. Hope this helps! ...Read more

High grade osseous neural foraminal stenosis with cervical spondylosis mean?

High grade osseous neural foraminal stenosis with cervical spondylosis mean?

Pinched nerve: Cervical spondylosis is arthritis in the neck. Foraminal stenosis means narrowing of the space where the nerves exit the spinal canal, in this case caused by bone spurs from arthritis. After they leave the neck these nerves form the three major nerves of the arm, controlling feeling and movement. Stenosis can cause pain, weakness, numbness or tingling in the arm or hand. High grade = severe. ...Read more

MRI =Mild" thickening of heart muscle not HOCM.Tortuous descending aorta. Aberrant right subclavian artery which courses posterior to the trachea. ??

Mild thickening's OK: See my comment to your previous post regarding the other findings (tortuous aorta, subclavian artery). The mild thickening of the heart muscle is common, and not necessarily from HCM. It could be the effects of long-standing hypertension. Keeping ur BP low with a -pril or a -sartan (Enalapril, Valsartan, etc.) could even reverse the thickening of the heart. Thanks 4 ur question on HealthTap, & GL! ...Read more

What's a petrous canal stenosis or a left focal congenital ica stenosis?

What's a petrous canal stenosis or a left focal congenital ica stenosis?

Risk of stroke: The internal carotid artery enters the skull through a canal in the petrous bone (one of the skull bones). Stenosis of the canal can occur with osteopetrosis that could extrinsically compress internal carotid artery. More commonly, atherosclerosis can lead to intrinsic stenosis of the carotid artery. In either situation, the individual is at increased risk of stroke. See physician soon. ...Read more

Not meaningful: These findings on MRI of c spine are simply indicators of arthritic phenomenon with aging or wear and tear. These may or may not clinically corelate with the clinical symptoms or signs of a patient. Examining and ordering physician is in best position to tell if these findings corelate with your symptoms. See a neurologist. ...Read more
