119 Possible Causes for Brachial Pulse Decreased, Elbow Malalignment

  • Hyperabduction Syndrome

    Causes External Pressure Crutch use Leaning on one elbow, or the arm hanging over a chair Internal Pressure Bony callus Joint subluxation Muscular hypertonicity from postural[leggehealth.ca] […] dysfunction such as hyperkyphosis, structural malalignments, trigger points, occupational stresses, emotion stresses, all of which lead to shallow breathing, and poor sleeping[leggehealth.ca]

  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

    Minor arterial syndrome It is the decrease or loss of radial pulse when arms are abducted and rotated outwards after they were lifted up, this is seen in the rate of 80%.[omicsonline.org] However, surgery indication is suspicious and it is impossible to argue that serious neurological symptoms will appear if the compression on brachial plexus is not eliminated[omicsonline.org]

  • Fracture

    CT angiography (CTA) should be considered in stable patients with first rib fractures if there are absent or decreased upper extremity pulses, regional hemorrhage, and/or[emedicine.medscape.com] brachial plexus injury.[emedicine.medscape.com] Historically, fractures of ribs 1-3 have been associated with injuries of the brachial plexus and major vessels.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Elbow Fracture

    Pinning the prevents malalignment of the elbow. Malalignment occurs in hyperextension, which prevents full elbow range of motion.[bonetalks.com] Posterior dislocation of the elbow without fractures. Note malalignment of the radiocapitellar line and ulnotrochlear joints.[emedicine.medscape.com] The primary goal of treatment is stable reduction of the ulnohumeral joint and functional elbow motion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    Ankle-to-brachial index testing postexercise again demonstrated a decline, and Doppler studies again showed decreased flow in the popliteal artery.[letsrun.com] Her ankle-to-brachial blood pressure index was normal at rest (1.02) but decreased after 5 minutes of running to 0.79. A duplex scan of her lower extremity was normal.[letsrun.com] […] but strong femoral pulses.[letsrun.com]
