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?

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

Indeterminate nodule: Hyper-echoic nodule has 5% chance of malignancy and the risk increases with large dominant nodule. 20-30% of all cancers are iso/hyper-echoic. Since this big nodule will be easy to biopsy - tissue diagnosis may be obtained to exclude malignancy. ...Read more

Can nerve paresthesias feel like vascular paresthesias i.E. Like you can feel the blood rushing through the vessels?

Can nerve paresthesias feel like vascular paresthesias i.E. Like you can feel the blood rushing through the vessels?

No: The only way to "feel" blood coursing through blood vessels is if there is an abnormal communication between an artery and a vein. This is done surgically for people who need dialysis. It can also happen with trauma. That should not be referred to as vascular paresthesias. ...Read more

What differences are there between lymph collecting vessels & veins of the blood vascular system?

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

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?

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 more

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.

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 more

I have hypertensive retinopathy so do people with this often have sclerosis and vascular changes to other blood vessels as well?

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 more

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?

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
