Refer to ultra sound report..
Gallbladder is well distended, walls appear normal, multiple samall calculi seen lumen
pls advice?

Depends....: These are gallstones. About 20% of people have gallstones, but only 20% of people have problems (pain) with gallstones. If you have been having right upper abdominal pain and you have gallstones on the ultrasound it may be an indication to remove the gallbladder. You should see a General Surgeon to confirm. ...Read more

"Central venous": A triple lumen central venous catheter is used in the hospital setting to enable blood sampling, fluid administration, and drug infusion, each from a separate lumen or channel. They are commonly used but should be removed as soon as clinically feasible to prevent catheter induced infections, which could be serious. ...Read more

Not necessarily: Large studies have shown that gallstones that don't cause symptoms don't require operation. Most people don't, in fact. However, once you start having symptoms due to gallstones such as pain, nausea, vomiting or jaundice, those symptoms tend to worsen over time until gallbladder removal is necessary. ...Read more

Depends: If the plaque occludes the artery then the blood pressure inside the artery will drop.. If it just stiffens the artery without affecting blood flow, the blood pressure inside the artery may be unchanged or appear elevated depending upon the measurement technique. ...Read more

I want to catheterize triple lumen catheter to let out all of the urine and insert synthetic urine for a drug test, any comments?

I want to catheterize triple lumen catheter to let out all of the urine and insert synthetic urine for a drug test, any comments?

Serious answer: As you know, try your best to not use illegal drugs. Seek help if needed
2nd, you sound like you are going to insert the catheter yourself ; i would assume in a nonsterile way. You will increase your chance of getting an infection in your urethra and/or bladder. Not a fun place for any infection.
There could also be possible legal ramifications, talk to a lawyer. Bad idea, dont compound one probl. ...Read more

Mom has a small polyp in the lumen of gall bladder.Is it is a big deal?

If removed: Gall bladder polyp will have high incidence of malignancy especially if it is over 2cm, if gall bladder is removed no 'big deal' by a simple surgery, if it transforms to malignancy, cancer of gall bladder has very poor prognosis. ...Read more

Artherosclerosis is when plaque builds up occluding lumen of arteries, right. How does this affect blood pressure?

Atherosclerosis: A thickened atherosclerotic blood vessel becomes less compliant and can therefore result in a higher BP (same volume of blood traveling in smaller and stiffer pipes). Elevated BP is a potent risk factor for accelerating atherosclerosis. ...Read more

I have just been told I have sludge in the lumen the BCD dilated to 1.5 CM after gall bladder removal will this mean more surgery please?

I have just been told I have sludge in the lumen the BCD dilated to 1.5 CM after gall bladder removal will this mean more surgery please?

Not Necessarily: Increasing size of the Common Bile Duct is normal after having your gallbladder removed. Unless you are having recurrent symptoms, I don't think you need surgery. You may need to have an upper endoscopy to open the valve so the sludge can be drained easier from the duct. That will be up to you, your symptoms and your surgeon/endoscopist. ...Read more

83 yrs. Gallbladder removed 40 years ago. Now show sludge in gallbladder lumen. What does this mean? Nausea common for me. Also atropy pancreas

83 yrs. Gallbladder removed 40 years ago.  Now show sludge in gallbladder lumen.  What does this mean?  Nausea common for me.  Also atropy pancreas

Symptoms?: Not sure what lumen you are referring to if the gallbladder was removed. You may develop gallstones in your common bile duct which could give you pain, nausea or jaundice. These can be confirmed with a test called an mrcp and removed with a procedure called an ercp. If your symptoms are minor these could probably be watched. Move forward with ERCP if pain, nausea or jaundice worsens. ...Read more

I have an anterior osteophytic ridge that pushed against my esophagus, effacing the mid and right lateral lumen. An ENT recommended surgery. Should i?

I have an anterior osteophytic ridge that pushed against my esophagus, effacing the mid and right lateral lumen. An ENT recommended surgery. Should i?

Maybe: In my 23 years of practice I have operated on two people with osteophytes so large that it impaired their swallowing. I have probably seen hundreds of x-rays showing enlarged osteophytes causing an impression upon the esophagus in patients with swallowing difficulty. In almost all cases we were able to come up with other treatments to help their swallowing. I strongly recommend a second opinion. ...Read more

How does vas deferens infection which result in a scar cause blockage? Does it block from inside the lumen or outside?

Usually inside lumen: Vas deferens infection can cause scar tissue which will block flow within the lumen of the tube. Also, a vasectomy can cause inflammation which can cause scar tissue blockage upstream into the groin. ...Read more

My ultrasound report says "gall bladder is distended show smooth walls, lumen is echo free, common bile duct is not dilated" What does this all mean? Should I be worried?

My ultrasound report says "gall bladder is distended show smooth walls, lumen is echo free, common bile duct is not dilated" What does this all mean? Should I be worried?

Gallbladder U/S: This sounds like a normal report. Echo free means no stones or polyps were seen. No bile duct dilation is normal. Gallbladder distention can be normal (it fills with bile then contracts to release the bile with meals). Of course, the report should be interpreted by the ordering physician, taking into account your symptoms that led to it being ordered in the first place. ...Read more

What is a staghorn calculi?

What is a staghorn calculi?

Large kidney stone: A staghorn calculus is a very large and often irregularly shaped kidney stone that grows in one or both kidneys. Having certain kinds of urinary tract infections can increase the risk of developing them. They generally do not move because they are so large - usually they are discovered on an ultrasound, ct, or mri. If they must be removed it usually requires surgery. ...Read more
