Will Angiogram Cause Nerve
Not usually: Am amgiogram should not usually cause any nerve damage. Since to perform an angiogram, one must access an a rtery there can be temporary discomfort while this is accessed. Rarely, while numbing or accessing the artery, the nerve can injured. This is usually transient and very rarely causes permanent discomfort. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more
No: No. Ct angiograms do not cause strokes. Ct angiograms of the head are used to diagnose stokes and ct angiograms of the head/neck and chest can help diagnose the cause of strokes. There is risk of radiation exposure and contrast toxicity (can impair kidney function). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Coronary vasospasm: Coronary vasospasm occasionally occurs during a cardiac catheterization but it's difficult to know what factors caused the spasm to occur. Prinzmetal angina is accompanied by certain ekg changes at the time of the vasospasm and this may be rare during coronary angiography. An interventional cardiologist is best suited to answer your question. ...Read more

What would be the cause for the medical team that is caring for my 2 year old sons hypertension to make the decision to wait until he doubles in size to perform an angiogram ?
Angiogram: I presume they want to do a renal angiogram. In any event, this requires some IV contrast to be given. The angiogram is a bit of a complex procedure done under a special xray device that requires the patient to be still. A 2 yo would require significant sedation/light general anesthesia usually monitored by an anesthesiologist. All of the above has risks the younger the patient. Wait if possible. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can frequent atrial ectopics ( 12063 beats, holter moniter ) cause problems ? Angiogram 3 years ago all clear.
Yes, it's a problem: Assuming you have a normal heart rate, your APCs are >10% of your total heart beats. That can cause your heart muscle to weaken and increases your risk of atrial fibrillation. You need a full evaluation for any treatable cause and your heart rate should be assessed to be sure it's well controlled to avoid injury. Is your sleep apnea treated? CPAP may help your arrhythmia if you haven't tried it. ...Read more
Hello i got my peripheral nerve damage doing an angiogram last month, but for a weem now I have being feeling a cold wet feeling going down leg?
Time: There is no treatment for nerve damage except to wait for healing which can take a long time (depending on severity, up to a year). The issue is whether there is anything else going on - generally the symptoms would be pain and swelling. If you have those and they're worse, you should be re-evaluated for an av fistula or pseudoaneurysm. ...Read more
Not unusual: The calcium score is a measure of calcium in the wall of the artery. An angiogram measures the degree of blockage in the lumen of the artery. A high calcium score is a measure of the risk of devolping obstructive coronary disease; it does not make the diagnsosis of obstructive coronary disease. ...Read more
What could cause a high (1100+) right coronary artery score and yet after a angiogram, they find no blockage?
Great question: An angiogram is showing plaque buildup that is impacting blood flow within the lumen of the vessel but before you have that happen you can get atherosclerotic buildup within the wall of the vessel that grows outward. This can be seen by CT but can appear very minimal on an angiogram. However if you have a CT with high calcium score I recommend medical therapy for coronary disease (statin, aspirin) ...Read more

I had ekg, nuc stress test, and angiogram. Was told I have left bundle branch block could this be cause of arrythmia and cause no other problems?
Possibly: You did not say if you were having symptoms (dizziness, palpitations, fainting, chest discomfort). Left bundle branch block is not an arrhythmia, but an abnormality in the heart's "wiring." it needs to be observed, but with normal tests as you described, and at your age, absent a family history of heart disease or sudden death it's unlikely to be dangerous at this time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I was stabbed 5mnths ago had angiogram to stop bleeding. Still have big hematoma 5wks after and chronic nerve pain and muscle pain. What can i do?
Nerve pain: If a nerve is injured from the knife or compressed by the hematoma, then the pain can persist as the nerve regenerates. Sometimes scar tissue (neuroma) forms around the nerve and causes persistent pain. A nerve conduction study can determine the extent of the injury and if the nerve is healing or whether it is severed. See a neurologist or neurosurgeon to evaluate the extent of the injury. ...Read more
