Ultrasound Venous Lower Extremity Bilateral
After doppler scan result varicose veins both lower limbs greater saphenous system due to incompetence of perforators of bilateral knee no thrombosis
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
Unilateral low leg swelling w/ distended non varicose vein. Leg throbs after walking up stairs. General squeeze feeling. ABI neg. Is this arterial?
Leg Pain: Your symptoms do not sound like they are arterial. Pain walking up stairs often times is muscular or joint related. Leg swelling is not typical of an arterial problem and I doubt that the distended vein is the cause of your problem. You should see an orthopedic doctor and also have a venous ultrasound. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Swelling back leg isolated below gastrocnemius to ankle. MRI, arteriovenous US normal.Tightness both sides of leg near ankle w/ dorsiflex. Tendonitis?
Valves malfunction.: Bad veins lead to venous stasis and insufficiency which is a result of the valves in the venous system malfunctioning . This can be due to the valves in the deep system, superficial system or connecting system. Deep system valve malfunction could be due to prior clots, superficial problems could lead to varicose veins and perforator malfunction could lead to venous ulcers.See a vein specialist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Low velocity vascular channels seen along left testis(caliber3-4 mm)suggestive of left sided varicocele came in my ultrasonography, is surgery required?
Posterior lower leg from below gastrocnemius to ankle is bigger than other. Venous + arterial US normal, MRI, normal. Might gadolinium show something?
Can, partially occlusive chronic thrombosis of lef saphenous in the calf and small saphenous vein proximal and mid calf, cause deep vein thrombosis?
Polycythemia vera verified by second opinion. + Crohn’s. Unilateral calf swelling. Unilateral superficial vein.
D-dimer + US normal. Get venogram?
Difficult to know: Polycythemia vera and Chrons are both risk factors for DVT . Also your sign and symptoms are suspicious for DVT. Venous Doppler US for a single exam may miss small DVT especially in the calf. D dimer if normal pretty sensitive. Many options repeat: Ultrasound and possibly d dimer, venogram [but these are not done much now], follow closely. Recommend close follow up with your doctor/ vein expert. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No but,,: A low INR is not a direct cause if pain. It stands for International Normalized Ratio and is the ratio of the patients prothrombin time to a normal prothrombin time value raised to the power of the ISI (international Sensitivity Index) or a ratio of tissue factor to a reference tissue factor. However if it's low it can mean that the blood is clotting more and can lead to thrombosis in patients. ...Read more
Lower left leg has a rhythmic throb after walking just two blocks. ABI and arteriovenous ultrasound normal. Mild swelling posteriorly. Get angiogram?
CVI treatable.: Chronic venous insufficiency is due to malfunctioning of valves in the superficial, deep or both venous systems. Although not reversible, it is treatable. The superficial valves, if leaking, can be closed via laser. The deep valves are treated symptomatically with elevation, compression hose, possibly lymphedema massage and compression pumps. The goal is to prevent worsening of the cvi ...Read more

Unilateral lower leg swelling. Wear compression socks and elevate feet for saphenous reflux, leg remains same size. Might swelling not be vascular?
No: you have venous stasis. Any other swelling can be like abscess formation, muscle herniation. Fracture, and if you have the above trust me you will know it right away. My advice if you have good arterial flow get 30-40mmHg compression sock and use them. Cut salt from diet and elevate feet when at rest ...Read more
GSV reflux below knee > 500ms. Mild swelling posteriorly. Lots of pain in lower leg, especially posterior-left side. Mri is normal. Strip the vein?
See vein specialist.: While you do have reflux, .5 seconds is minimal. The longer the reflux the greater the venous insufficiency. Having reflux does not mean that it is the cause of your symptoms. See a vein specialist for a venous evaluation to see if your symptoms are due to your veins. ...Read more
Report says:partially occlusive chronic thrombosis of lef saphenous in the calf and small saphenous vein proximal and mid calf. Please explain?Thanks.
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
