93 Possible Causes for Decreased Femoral Pulse, Radial Pulse Absent

  • Arterial Embolism

    At the time of birth, there was severe right arm ischemia with absent brachial and radial pulses.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Leriche Syndrome

    There is reduced or absent pulse in the arteries distal to the point of occlusion.[symptoma.com] 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 femoral pulses erectile[en.wikipedia.org] Examination of peripheral pulses alongside measurement of blood pressure is key. Pulse areas that are checked include the radial, brachial, femoral and popliteal.[symptoma.com]

  • Dissecting Aortic Aneurysm

    Patients often complain of arm claudication, and brachial and radial pulses are absent. Hence TA was previously called "pulseless disease"[ 4 ].[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com]

  • Non-Cranial Giant Cell Arteritis

    Giant cell arteritis is an inflammation of the lining of arteries, the blood vessels that carry oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the rest of the body. Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is a common form of vasculitis in people aged 50 years or older. Mostly it affects the arteries in head, especially those in temples. For[…][blood-test.biz]

  • Coarctation of the Aorta

    A 9-year-old boy, with a history of repair of severe coarctation of the aorta through balloon angioplasty 2 weeks ago, presented in the emergency paediatric department with symptoms consistent with transient cerebral ischaemia. MRI revealed an area of cerebral infarction in the right frontal lobe. Causes of[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acyanotic Congenital Heart Disease

    PURPOSE: We analysed the gross motor recovery of infants and toddlers with cyanotic and acyanotic congenital heart disease (CHD) who received early postoperative physical therapy to see whether there was any difference in the duration to recovery. METHODS: This study retrospectively evaluated the influence of[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subclavian Steal Syndrome

    It is characterized by episodes of flaccid paralysis of the arm, pain in the mastoid and occipital areas, and a diminished or absent radial pulse on the involved side.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Axillo-femoral bypass stead due to subclavian artery stenosis has also been reported ( Shigyo et al 2016 ).[medlink.com] radial pulse but without neurologic symptoms ( Contorni 1960 ).[medlink.com]

  • Hypertension

    Coarctation of the aorta frequently causes a decreased blood pressure in the lower extremities relative to the arms, or delayed or absent femoral arterial pulses.[en.wikipedia.org] […] pressure in the lower extremities or delayed or absent femoral arterial pulses may indicate aortic coarctation; truncal obesity, glucose intolerance, and purple striae suggest[dx.doi.org] Pheochromocytoma should be suspected in patients with labile hypertension or with paroxysms of hypertension accompanied by headache, palpitations, pallor, and perspiration. 77 Decreased[dx.doi.org]
