12 Possible Causes for Decreased Popliteal Pulse

  • Arteriosclerosis

    The management of the chronically ischemic leg with ulcer formation that is not suitable for either surgical or interventional treatment is still a matter of controversy. We describe three cases of ischemic ulcer treated with basic fibroblast growth factor spray. Ulcer healing was accelerated and complete[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lower Extremity Arteriosclerosis

    BACKGROUND: Ketamine in sub-dissociative doses has been shown to have analgesic effects in various pain conditions, including neuropathic and phantom-limb pain, where conventional treatment has often failed. Chronic ischemic pain due to lower extremity arteriosclerosis obliterans often responds poorly to analgesics,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Peripheral Vascular Disease

    A 55-year-old man was hospitalized for endovascular stent placement in both right common iliac and femoral arteries for relief of claudication symptoms due to peripheral vascular disease. Angiography demonstrated diffuse atherosclerosis of the infrarenal aorta and severe stenosis of the right common iliac and[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Leriche Syndrome

    - A dictionary of medical eponyms Related people René Leriche A disturbance usually affecting young males caused by atheromatous involvement or occlusion of the abdominal aorta by a thrombus just above the site of its bifurcation (obliteration of both A. iliacae communes). The main symptoms are inability to[…][whonamedit.com]

  • Entrapment Neuropathy

    Clinically, she no longer had dorsalis pedis and posterior tibial pulses with resisted plantar flexion, indicating a return of the popliteal entrapment syndrome.[letsrun.com] Ankle-to-brachial index testing postexercise again demonstrated a decline, and Doppler studies again showed decreased flow in the popliteal artery.[letsrun.com]

  • Hypovolemia

    A narrowing in the pulse pressure, an early symptom of hypovolemic shock, reflects a decrease in stroke volume and peripheral vasoconstriction.[163.178.103.176] Frequently assess the radial pulse (and periodically check the brachial, pedal, and popliteal pulses), noting its rate, strength, and regularity.[163.178.103.176]

  • Synovial Sarcoma

    Swelling in the popliteal fossa was tender on palpation and irreducible on flexion of the knee joint.[ispub.com] […] ridges over the nails along with absent dorsalis pedis and posterior tibial artery pulse on palpation.[ispub.com] On careful examination the lower half of the leg and the foot showed changes of chronic limb ischemia like decreased local temperature, dryness of skin, hair loss, transverse[ispub.com]

  • Popliteal Artery Entrapment Syndrome

    Clinically, she no longer had dorsalis pedis and posterior tibial pulses with resisted plantar flexion, indicating a return of the popliteal entrapment syndrome.[letsrun.com] Ankle-to-brachial index testing postexercise again demonstrated a decline, and Doppler studies again showed decreased flow in the popliteal artery.[letsrun.com]

  • Hypovolemic Shock

    A narrowing in the pulse pressure, an early symptom of hypovolemic shock, reflects a decrease in stroke volume and peripheral vasoconstriction.[163.178.103.176] Frequently assess the radial pulse (and periodically check the brachial, pedal, and popliteal pulses), noting its rate, strength, and regularity.[163.178.103.176]

  • Diabetic Gangrene

    There were no pulses in the entire left lower limb. On the right lower limb, there was a decrease in temperature at the foot and the leg, along with tenderness.[oapublishinglondon.com] The popliteal, posterior tibial and dorsalis pedis pulsations were absent. There was no ulcer or gangrene over the foot.[oapublishinglondon.com]
