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.[aafp.org] bruits.[circ.ahajournals.org] 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[aafp.org]

  • 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[clinicaladvisor.com] A physical exam in our laboratory identifies any diminished wrist or foot pulses or the presence of supraclavicular or femoral bruits.[pacificvascular.com] […] fistula (after femoral artery puncture in cardiac catheterization), Popliteal bruits (behind the knee) Whenever possible listen for femoral bruits and palpate the pulses in[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Non-Cranial Giant Cell Arteritis

    Bruits over major arteries such as the carotids, vertebrals, subclavians, axillary, iliac/femoral arteries.[rheumatologyadvisor.com] 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[rheumatologyadvisor.com]

  • Arteriovenous Fistula

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

  • 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[…][symptoma.com]

  • Hypertension

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

  • Essential Hypertension

    The presence of carotid, abdominal, or femoral bruits increases the possibility that renal artery stenosis exists.[doi.org] […] disease) or delayed or weak femoral pulses (coarctation).[patient.info] 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[doi.org]

  • High Output Heart Failure

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

  • 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[merckmanuals.com] bruit (iliac FMD) Heart attack caused by coronary artery dissection (rare) What Are Warning Signs of FMD?[dx.doi.org] […] 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[dx.doi.org]

  • Acute Renal Failure

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