Echogenic structure with vascularity within endometrial canal measuring 2.1x1.8x1.5cm (5weeks after D&C, I was 6 weeks preg). Shld I go for repeat D&C?
Possibly: The main concern is that the prior D&C was incomplete, and that there are still "retained products of conception" within your uterus. You should consult with your OB/GYN. They will probably have obtained a blood test for hCG, and depending on the results of that test, the detailed ultrasound findings, and whether you are experiencing bleeding, cramping or other symptoms, you may need another D&C ...Read more
Can nerve paresthesias feel like vascular paresthesias i.E. Like you can feel the blood rushing through the vessels?
Many differences: LYMPH collecting vessel are thin walled, just the thinnest of intimal lining, and have no media or adventitial covering . Lymph fluid is acellular. Vein can be thin wall but may have media and adventitial layers and carry blood with a variety of cells in it. ...Read more
They found a A heterogeneous structure in the right adnexal region. The remainder of the masslike structure contains numerous dilated and tortuous vessels, should I be concerned or is it something that should go away?
What causes pelvic vascular congestion with prominent vessels in the periuterine area? What types of symptoms will pelvic vascular congestion cause? And what should be done to treat the condition?
Pelvic congestion: Pelvic congestion is related to to incompetent valves in the ovarian veins allowing venous reflux causing venous pelvic engorged veins. They can be asymptomatic or cause pelvic aching/pain. When they are symptomatic they can be treated through a minimally invasive procedure by blocking off the veins by an interventional radiologist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
With marked vascular changes/sclerosis, sometortuosity and venous dialation, what grade of hypertens retinopathy do I have? Discs/maculae are okay. My ophthalmologist said vessels look 20 yrs older.
Grade not important: The grade of retinopathy is not important unless its very severe. Both systems the keith-wagener-barker and the scheie system grade retinopathy by the attenuation (sclerosis) of the blood vessels and end with severe disc swelling. Usually, only the disc swelling resolves with treatment of blood pressure. The vascular changes may remain even in well treated patients. Control blood pressure! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have hypertensive retinopathy so do people with this often have sclerosis and vascular changes to other blood vessels as well?
Yes: The small blood vessels in the eye are sensitive "barometers" of hypertensive disease, and reflect the systemic changes seen in other blood vessels elsewhere. Larger blood vessels like the carotid, cardiac and aorta arteries develop atherosclerosis, whereas the smaller retinal, renal, ; cerebral develop arteriolar sclerosis. Blood pressure control is essential for organ protection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Periventricular isch chnges, infarcts both cerebral hemispheres incl rt parietal? Vascular event.Blood & vessels ok.Next check pfo, but could it be ms
Possible, but...: Fine to check for pfo, but real question involves potentials for stroke. You could have cadasil, which is a genetic disorder. A spinal tap could assist in diagnosis perhaps. Vasculitis, arteritis, even sjogren's might be considered. Description not necessarily ms, but part of considerations. ...Read more

Crossing legs for a while causing numbness, is it due to ischemia to the nerve? Or to the vascular structures that cause numbness?
Peroneal : The peroneal nerve gets compressed at the lateral fibular area, and in part the small vessels, vasa nervorum get compressed, with some mild localized and reversible ischemia, but also transient axonal transport cut-off with less distal nutrient delivery. But the nerves cause the numbness, not the blood vessels. ...Read more
What does "2.8cm right adnexal cystic lesion with question of an enhancing mural nodule versus confluence of vascular structures" on a CT scan mean?
Blood loss: Most often this is used to refer to hemorrhagic shock or shock due to blood loss. If there is a rapid loss of blood a person will go into shock (low blood pressure, decreased responsiveness). This is usually accompanied by a rapid heart rate if due to blood loss. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Increased blood flow: Refers to increased blood flow to an area due; typically due to an increased number of blood vessels supplying the area in question or an increase in the degree of blood flow that is being "routed" to that area of the body. Common reasons for increased vascularity can be the body trying to heal an area of injury or a need to increased metabolism for that area. Pathology such as tumors also cause ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Blood vessel surgery: Vascular surgery is a surgical specialty that focuses on abnormalities of the blood vessels. Some procedures are done with wires, catheters, balloons, stents and several other small devices through small puncture sites in the arteries. Other procedures are done in the operating room with incisions and suturing of grafts to correct blockages or aneurysms. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
A Lot: A vascular surgeon is a highly trained physician dedicated to the care of disorders of the circulatory system, including the arteries and the veins. The arteries carry blood from the heart to the vital organs and limbs, and the veins that return the blood back to the heart. This includes the medical management and diagnosis of these conditions, minimally invasive interventions, and surgery. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Briefly,: Vascular surgery is a medical discipline that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and problems of the arterial, venous and lymphatic systems, exclusive of the heart. Interventional treatment can be both surgical and non-surgical (i.e. Catheter based and minimally invasive) and as such, make vascular surgeons uniquely qualified to provide unbiased recommendations for patients. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
