Is pulmonary vein isolation successful in treating paromxal atrillfibrillation ?

Is pulmonary vein isolation successful in treating paromxal atrillfibrillation ?

Complicated: The answer to this is complicated. In electrophysiologists who are well trained catheter ablation to create pulmonary vein isolation is reasonably successful if that is the focus of your af. There are procedural risks (cardiac damage, arrhythmia, stroke, pulmonary vein stenosis and others) and the success is not always permanent (af can come back even if there was initial success.). ...Read more

What does the pulmonary artery, pulmonary vein, pulmonary valve, tricuspid valve, do?

Wow,: Do u want 2b an md? The pulmonary artery takes the blood (that gave up the oxygen to the tissues in the body) from your right heart to the lungs. Oxygenated blood returns to the left heart via the 4 pulmonary veins. This is called the pulmonary circulation ( see google) pulmonary (in the p.Artery) and the tricuspid (between the 2 chambers of the right heart control the flow in this system. ...Read more

"The pulmonary vasculture is normal.There are no intrapulmonary nodules or masses."on CT chest.Does above rule out clot(s) on (right) pulmonary vein(s

It depends: on how the scan was performed and the timing of the contrast injection. If PE was a concern, the scan might have been optimized for looking at the pulmonary arteries rather than veins. Pulmonary venous thrombosis is rare. ...Read more

What do the pulmonary veins do?

What do the pulmonary veins do?

Return blood: in most people, the pulmonary veins return oxygenated blood back to the left side of the heart so the heart can squeeze the blood out to be delivered to the entire body. In some cases, there is an abnormal communication of pulmonary vein(s) and they can deliver blood to the right side of the heart although this is abnormal. ...Read more

What would be the duty of pulmonary veins in heart?

1 duty, 1 problem: The pulmonary veins exist to bring the blood back from the lungs so it can be pumped to the rest of the body. The veins, however, have electrical properties that means they give extra heartbeats to some people, and on occasion even cause atrial fibrillation, in which case the veins must be modified so they do their job without causing extra trouble. ...Read more

In systematic sclerosis , does lungs affect the veins or vice versa ?

Not sure: Systemic sclorosis is very difficult to treat. Several modalities that have been of some benefit include DMSO intravenously or orally (i recommend 5-10 ml mixed in juice or water), chelation therapy with edta (orally or intravenously), carnosine 1000-2000 mg per day, para-amino benzoic acid (5 gm/day), and aminoguanidine. ...Read more

I suffer with af. It is triggered by the vegas nerve .Can this be ablated and is the area in the pulmonary veins or elsewhere?

You need the nerve: I presume you mean atrial fibrillation. Such being the case, i believe you need the vagus nerve. It is usually controlled by medication. The nerve begins in the brain stem and does go into chest. ...Read more

What is unique about the pulmonary veins and pulmonary arteries when compared to other veins and arteries on the body?

What is unique about the pulmonary veins and pulmonary arteries when compared to other veins and arteries on the body?

They are backwards: All arteries in the body carry oxygenated blood from the heart. After leaving the arteries, blood enters capillaries where oxygen is dropped off and carbon dioxide waste is picked up. Veins then take the carbon dioxide back to the heart. Now here is the difference. The pulm. Arteries then take the blood with carbon dioxide to the lungs where oxygen is picked up and carried by the pulm. Veins. ...Read more

What causes multiple bilateral pulmonary emboli thrombosis of the pelvic veins?

What causes multiple bilateral pulmonary emboli thrombosis of the pelvic veins?

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 more
