Artery (Definition)

Arteries are a type of blood vessels. We can divide blood vessels into 2 categories. Arteries are high pressure vessels which deliver (red) oxygen + blood out into the body. Veins on the other hand or low pressure vessels which return (dark) oxygent - blood from the body ...Read more

What are some treatments for blocked renal arteries?

What are some treatments for blocked renal arteries?

Treat renal stenosis: The treatment of a blocked kidney artery is controversial. The 3 ways would be medications, surgery, or arterial stents. There is evidence that all 3 work equally well, even in severe cases, although there are some cases where surgery or a stent may yield a better outcome. However, the risk of surgery or stents is not small, and therefore, a conservative approach with medicine is often best. ...Read more

Do the treatment options change depending on how clogged my arteries are?

Do the treatment options change depending on how clogged my arteries are?

Possibly: If the artery is completely blocked, or if there are long segments of blockage or multiple areas of complete blockage in a row, it may be more difficult to treat the blockage with angioplasty. Open surgery becomes a better option in these situations. ...Read more

Do my arteries have to be badly damaged of some kind to rupture or could I get too high BP so it ruptures?

Do my arteries have to be badly damaged of some kind to rupture or could I get too high BP so it ruptures?

Control BP: At 22 years of age it would be very unlikely that you would have a blood vessel rupture. However, it is possible with extremes of high blood pressure for the small arteries in the brain to form an aneurysm and rupture even if they are not damaged to start with. This is called a hemorrhagic stroke. Most damage from high BP takes years to show up but it can be severe like heart attack or stroke. ...Read more

What's the highest BP that has ever been reported? If u would raise BP until something ruptured wich artery would rupture first u think?

What's the highest BP that has ever been reported? If u would raise BP until something ruptured wich artery would rupture first u think?

Severe htn: I have seen systolic bp greater than 300 and diastolic bp over 160. Retinal arterioles famously show rupture first -- but not exclusively. Glomerular capillaries rupture easily too. And intracranial vessels are vulnerable - but uniquely protected by cerebral autoregulation ...Read more

Could my arteries rupture if my BP gets too high? have prob. that makes BP super high after small things and pulse gets super strong in neck

Could my arteries rupture if my BP gets too high? have prob. that makes BP super high after small things and pulse gets super strong in neck

Not very likely: You are young and presumably healthy. Arteries don't just rupture even with very high blood pressure unless they are diseased. Highly unlikely at your age. It does sound like you might benefit from some counseling or perhaps some biofeedback training to help control these exaggerated responses that you have. ...Read more

If the aorta is the thickest artery how come it's one of the most usual to rupture? Is it likely my aorta will rupture with extreme BP when training?

If the aorta is the thickest artery how come it's one of the most usual to rupture? Is it likely my aorta will rupture with extreme BP when training?

Not always: ur restin bp should be controlled 130/80. then regular gradual training. high Bp over time will make aorta rupture. So control bp ...Read more

What are the treatment options for blocked carotid arteries?

What are the treatment options for blocked carotid arteries?

Just depends: There are a lot of options when discussing carotid artery disease. The treatment guidelines are very strict and are based on symptoms and the degree of narrowing found on tests. The options range from observation to placing a stent or surgery to remove the blockage. It is really hard to tell which one is the right treatment until evaluated by a vascular surgeon. ...Read more

I had a stroke and both arteries in my neck are blocked. What are my treatment options?

I had a stroke and both arteries in my neck are blocked. What are my treatment options?

Medication: Mledications to keep platelets from clumping may help. Also ensure that the arteries are completely blocked (if there is even a slight opening, surgery/stenting may be possible (but not if they are completely blocked). It may be worthwhile to discuss (somewhat controversial) surgical options like eca-ica bypass with your physician if there are complete blockages of both ica arteries. ...Read more
