48 Possible Causes for Decreased Femoral Pulse

  • Arterial Embolism

    Abstract We report on 2 cases of visceral arterial embolism presenting with acute abdominal pain. In neither patient a cause could be established on initial clinical, laboratory, echographic or radiological investigation. Both patients were subsequently found to have a mural thrombus in the thoracic aorta, with visceral[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Leriche Syndrome

    femoral pulses erectile dysfunction This combination is known as Leriche syndrome. [1] However, any number of symptoms may present, depending on the distribution and severity[en.wikipedia.org] Obstruction in the more proximal vessels is easily recognized when palpation of the femoral artery reveals decreased or absent pulse.[symptoma.com] Signs and symptoms [ edit ] Classically, it is described in male patients as a triad of the following signs and symptoms : claudication of the buttocks and thighs absent or decreased[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Non-Cranial Giant Cell Arteritis

    Histopathologic findings did not help rule out giant cell arteritis (GCA) in patients whose temporal artery biopsy findings were negative, a retrospective study found. Among patients who ultimately were diagnosed with GCA but whose temporal artery biopsies showed no evidence of an inflammatory giant cell infiltrate,[…][medpagetoday.com]

  • Coarctation of the Aorta

    Abstract The combination of right aortic arch with aberrant left brachiocephalic artery and aortic coarctation is very rare. Here, we report the case of a 3.1-kg neonate with multiple malformations who received detailed preoperative anatomical definition by chest computed tomography (CT) scan and eventually[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acyanotic Congenital Heart Disease

    OBJECTIVE: The type of congenital heart disease, early diagnosis, and treatment modality all play an important role in the morbidity and mortality of these diseases. This study examined the relationship between congenital heart disease and oxidative stress in children with cyanotic and acyanotic congenital heart[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dissecting Aortic Aneurysm

    Abstract Rhabdomyolysis, a massive necrosis of skeletal muscle, is caused by various traumatic and non-traumatic factors. We report on a 30-year-old male in whom dissecting aortic aneurysm diagnosed by computed tomography was responsible for the generation of rhabdomyolytic acute renal failure. The patient was[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

A duplex scan of her lower extremity was normal.[letsrun.com] The athletic training staff was asked to monitor posterior tibial pulses if she became symptomatic during practice; trainers documented the absence of posterior tibial pulses[letsrun.com]
