Ultrasound shows ulnar artery responsible for profusion in the hand. What is profusion of the hand.

Ultrasound shows ulnar artery responsible for profusion in the hand. What is profusion of the hand.

Perfusion?: Is it possible there's a typographical error here, and you might have exchanged "profusion" for "perfusion"? Perfusion means the flow of blood through an organ in order to allow gas exchange. Along with the radial artery, the ulnar artery delivers oxygenated blood to the hand -- or, "perfuses" it. ...Read more

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

Results at dx office: You had a doppler study at your doctors office. You may have had a nerve conduction study as well. Make sure whenever you have a study you review the results with the doctor. In this case a vascular surgeon may have the lab and will review as to whether there is trip basic flow and compare the results to normals. ...Read more

If doppler arterial ultrasound says ulnar artery is supplying flow and collateral flow is good . What is embolism with branch occlusion.

If doppler arterial ultrasound says ulnar artery is supplying flow and collateral flow is good . What is embolism with branch occlusion.

I will try again: There are several cause of arterial occlusions. There are degrees of arterial blockage. If a clot moves- embolize s it can obstruct multiple vessels and branches causing more tissue to be under circulated-ischemic. The remaining question is why the radial clotted: embolus, trauma, needle sticks, thoracic outlet and aneurysm. Need exam. Doppler helps define the location but not the cause. ...Read more

Radial artery occlusion. Middle finger is bent and won't straighten. What is cause. How do u know if ulnar artery is open?

Radial artery occlusion.  Middle finger is bent and won't straighten.  What is cause. How do u know if ulnar artery is open?

Tendon issue.: Ulnar artery is on the wrist, by the tendons, on the side opposite from the thumb. Finger motion is controlled by tendons, and working joints. Not by arteries. ...Read more

Have chronic radial artery occlusion. Having pain. When is coronary bypass done. Good flow in ulnar artery. Advice.

Have chronic radial artery occlusion. Having pain. When is coronary bypass done. Good flow in ulnar artery. Advice.

When needed: Having occlude radial artery no major problem ulnar art is there as for pain is it chest pain? Then u should be w/u for that with ur cardiologist with stress test or other , there are other options other than ur radial art for bypass ima r or l saph vein r or l but neede to c ur dr for DX and rec"s. ...Read more

I have an occluded rt ulnar artery, since 10/1. Would this cause pain in my wrist, thumb, hand? Achy, burning, with shooting pain. Started after.

Possibly: The radial artery is one of two arteries that supply blood to the hand/wrist/and thumb, in addition to collateral arteries. That is why it is less likely to be due to the arterial occlusion. Achy, burning, shooting pain sounds more like a nerve compression such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Ischemic pain is usually different although could have some similar attributes to what you describe. ...Read more

See Vein opposite Radial Artery pulsing bulging in time with heart is this Ulnar Artery ? Not seen so pronounced in Opposite inner wrist, normal?

See Vein opposite Radial Artery pulsing bulging in time with heart is this Ulnar Artery ? Not seen so pronounced in Opposite inner wrist, normal?

Pulsation: The vein most likely is touching the radial artery and moves as the artery pulsates. If this pulsation is much more noticeable than the pulsation of the left radial artery, I would check the blood pressure in both arms to see if there is a significant difference and to see if there is abnormally high bp in the right arm. A vascular surgeon could also check for an aneurysm of the right radial arter ...Read more

Have chronic thrombosis of radial artery. Ulnar artery is supplying flow to hand. But I am still having pain. Can any treatment be done or m i screwe?

Almost always option: Please get a consult to a vascular surgeon for discussion of options. Generally the body compensates in cases of chronic ischemia, recruiting and enlarging blood vessels to try to increase blood flow. There may also be interventional or surgical options to consider. ...Read more
