108 Possible Causes for Femoral Bruit

  • Peripheral Vascular Disease

    Physical findings include abnormal pedal pulses, femoral artery bruit, delayed venous filling time, cool skin, and abnormal skin color.[] bruits.[] The most reliable physical findings are diminished or absent pedal pulses, presence of femoral artery bruit, abnormal skin color, and cool skin ( Table 3 10 ), but their absence[]

  • Lower Extremity Arterial Aneurysm

    bruits are audible above the inguinal crease Femoral bruits are audible in the thigh: A femoral bruit audible during systole and diastole is diagnostic for arteriovenous[] A physical exam in our laboratory identifies any diminished wrist or foot pulses or the presence of supraclavicular or femoral bruits.[] […] fistula (after femoral artery puncture in cardiac catheterization), Popliteal bruits (behind the knee) Whenever possible listen for femoral bruits and palpate the pulses in[]

  • Non-Cranial Giant Cell Arteritis

    Bruits over major arteries such as the carotids, vertebrals, subclavians, axillary, iliac/femoral arteries.[] GCA may include the following: Weight loss Fever Asymmetric blood pressures in arms or legs may occur if inflammation causes stenosis of the subclavian, axillary, iliac or femoral[]

  • Arteriovenous Fistula

    The inguinal bruit resolved, the arteries recovered good pulsatility, and the lower limb edema promptly reduced.[] A 36-year-old woman with history of intravenous heroin and cocaine abuse presented with right lower limb edema, inguinal bruit, and heart failure.[] We report the surgical treatment of a high-flow femoro-femoral arteriovenous fistula (AVF), a rare complication of intravenous drug abuse.[]

  • Leriche Syndrome

    Leriche syndrome, also known as Leriche's syndrome is a type of occlusive peripheral artery disease that occurs at the bifurcation of the abdominal aorta into the common iliac arteries. Leriche syndrome classically presents in the form of a triad of specific symptoms. The most common of these is claudication, which[…][]

  • Hypertension

    The presence of carotid, abdominal, or femoral bruits increases the possibility that renal artery stenosis exists.[] Diminished femoral pulses and/or a discrepancy between arm and thigh blood pressures suggest aortic coarctation or significant aortoiliac disease.[]

  • Essential Hypertension

    The presence of carotid, abdominal, or femoral bruits increases the possibility that renal artery stenosis exists.[] […] disease) or delayed or weak femoral pulses (coarctation).[] bruits; palpation of the thyroid gland; thorough examination of the heart and lungs; examination of the abdomen for enlarged kidneys, masses, distended urinary bladder, and[]

  • High Output Heart Failure

    Physical examination showed jugular venous distension, lung crecipitations, femoral bruit and pitting pedal edema.[]

  • Fibromuscular Dysplasia

    Symptoms, when they occur, vary by location: Claudication in the thighs and calves, femoral bruits, and decreased femoral pulses when leg arteries are affected Secondary hypertension[] bruit (iliac FMD) Heart attack caused by coronary artery dissection (rare) What Are Warning Signs of FMD?[] […] vertebral artery dissection Other sites Abdominal pain after eating (mesenteric FMD) Weight loss (mesenteric FMD) Arm or leg pain with exertion (lower or upper extremity FMD) Femoral[]

  • Acute Renal Failure

    Listen for adbominal and femoral bruits (reno-vascular disease).[]
