59 Possible Causes for Decreased Carotid Pulse

  • Fibromuscular Hyperplasia of the Carotid Artery

    pulses in the femoral vein Carotid arteries: Transient ischemic attack or stroke symptoms (such as trouble speaking, muscle weakness, paralysis on one side of the body, vision[] […] tired feeling in the muscles of the leg (claudication), unusual sounds heard through a stethoscope that are caused by blood rushing through the narrowed artery (bruits), and decreased[]

  • Non-Cranial Giant Cell Arteritis

    […] artery tenderness, decreased or absent pulses, and large-vessel bruits on physical examination.[] Decreased or absent carotid, radial, dorsalis pedis or posterior tibial artery pulses.[] The superficial temporal arteries may be thickened, nodular, tender and erythematous, and pulses may be decreased or absent.[]

  • Carotid Artery Occlusion

    When your doctor puts their hands on your neck to detect a pulse, they’re feeling one of your carotid arteries.[] Carotid artery disease occurs when a blockage in one or both of these arteries decreases the amount of blood flow to your brain. This can lead to a stroke.[]

  • Chronic Constrictive Pericarditis

    Constrictive pericarditis (CP) is a rare clinical entity that can pose diagnostic problems. The diagnosis of CP requires a high degree of clinical suspicion. The gold standard for diagnosis is cardiac catheterization with analysis of intracavitary pressure curves, which are high and, in end diastole, equal in all[…][]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    Restrictive cardiomyopathies in the pediatric population have diverse etiologies, including storage diseases like hemosiderosis, glycogenoses and desmin with its associated proteins. Desmin-related myopathy is a rare familial disorder of the cardiac and skeletal muscle characterized by intrasarcoplasmic accumulation of[…][]

  • Arteriosclerosis

    Arteriosclerosis is the thickening, hardening and loss of elasticity of the walls of arteries . [3] This process gradually restricts the blood flow to one's organs and tissues and can lead to severe health risks brought on by atherosclerosis , which is a specific form of arteriosclerosis caused by the buildup of[…][]

  • Transient Ischemic Attack

    Previous research has shown the importance of urgent initiation of antiplatelet therapy after transient ischemic attack (TIA) to reduce the risk of stroke. Many hospitals in the Netherlands have therefore implemented rapid pathways for assessment of patients with TIA. Dutch stroke guidelines lack clear directives[…][]

  • Hemodialysis

    Carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity, augmentation index, and aortic pulse pressure significantly decreased after hemodialysis.[] Pre-dialysis carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity was associated with volume status determined by bioimpedance analysis.[] Pre-dialysis carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity was associated with age (r2   0.15, p   0.01), total cholesterol (r2   0.06, p   0.02), peripheral mean blood pressure (r2[]

  • Trandolapril

    Mean and pulse pressure decreased significantly to a greater extent with the drug combination.[] This study shows that both compounds and more significantly combination therapy decreased mean and pulse pressures measured independently and that the changes in diameter,[] […] sites (brachial and common carotid arteries and abdominal aorta), as well as cardiac and carotid wall structure.[]

  • Nisoldipine

    Blood pressure decreased significantly, and carotid artery width and fractional shortening increased significantly following nisoldipine administration (p 0.0001).[] Carotid artery pulse wave peak velocity did not change following the treatment period (p 0.05).[] pulse wave velocity and stiffness were evaluated in 36 patients with essential hypertension before and after nisoldipine treatment.[]
