Hi! I was wondering about if a binary vascular system could be supported within the normal human body. If so, would it be advised?

Hi! I was wondering about if a binary vascular system could be supported within the normal human body. If so, would it be advised?

See below: Yes, it can be supported but probably not the best thing since it would require 2 hearts. This would put quite a bit of load on the lungs, take up a lot of space needed for other things (including double the vasculature) and it's doubtful it would be any more efficient than a health cardiovascular system the "usual" singular way. ...Read more

Tissue (Definition)

It you are uncertain of the severity or significance, then seek a vascular specialist opinion. It could be a DVT within the gastrocnemius veins or other muscle veins, which occasionally can become a more serious from of DVT. Or it could be a more benign hematoma. You would need an ultrasound w/ interpretation. ...Read more

What is vascularization of tumors?

What is vascularization of tumors?

Degree of vascularit: Most tumor grow by anerobic metabolism, Warburg Citric Acid Cycle. They do not need oxygen to survive and can best be controlled by use of Hyperbaric Oxygenation. Blood supply serves to allow the tumor cells to metastasize. Drugs that inhibit blood supply like Avastin (bevacizumab) actually work by opening microcirculation to let drugs into tumor. More effectively. ...Read more

What is vascularization of tumors?

Source of invasion: All tumors tend to spread, mostly by metastasizing through surrounding blood supply. The tumors do not need the oxygen supplied by the vessels to survive since they grow by anaerobic metabolism. When Folkman developed angiostatin to diminish blood supply to tumors there was no change in growth and lesions progressed. This confirmed the role of vascularization to the tumor as sources for invasion ...Read more
