24 Possible Causes for Supraclavicular Bruit

  • Carotid Artery Occlusion

    BACKGROUND: There has been no large-scale trial comparing endovascular treatment (add-on EVT) after intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (IV tPA) and IV tPA alone in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) caused by internal carotid artery occlusion (ICAO). We aimed at investigating the effectiveness and safety of[…][]

  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

    […] in the supraclavicular area is further evidence; - alternatively, the patient turns head toward side of compression, inhales, raises arm, and patient shrugs shoulders; -[] Arterial TOS • Symptoms –Digital or hand ischemia –Cutaneous ulcerations –Forearm pain with use –Pulsatile supraclavicular mass/bruit 34.[] […] axillary vessels and plexus bent 90 deg at the junction of the glenoid and humeral head; - place extremity in full abduction and reach back as far possible; - creation of a bruit[]

  • Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm

    Thoracic aortic aneurysm is a potentially life-threatening condition in that it places patients at risk for aortic dissection or rupture. However, our modern understanding of the pathogenesis of thoracic aortic aneurysm is quite limited. A genetic predisposition to thoracic aortic aneurysm has been established, and[…][]

  • Non-Cranial Giant Cell Arteritis

    A new study presented for the first time today at the European League Against Rheumatism Annual Congress (EULAR 2014), shows that cranial ultrasound has a greater sensitivity than temporal artery biopsy,* and a comparable specificity in the diagnosis of Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA). Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA), a[…][]

  • Takayasu Arteritis

    Takayasu arteritis is a rare large-vessel arteritis characterized by arterial fibrosis, granulomas, and stenoses. It displays a predilection for Asian women and primarily involves the aorta and related branches. Takayasu arteritis is a type of arteritis that causes inflammation of the large and medium-sized arteries,[…][]

  • Subclavian Steal Syndrome

    His physical examination was remarkable for the presence of a left supraclavicular bruit, and weak left radial and brachial pulses, with a significant discrepancy in blood[] bruits and disappearance of the radial pulse on exercise or elevation of the arm.[] Physical examination findings may include unilaterally decreased pulses on the affected side, a blood pressure difference of greater than 20 mm Hg between the arms, supraclavicular[]

  • Micturition Syncope

  • Vertebrobasilar Insufficiency

    An isolated supraclavicular bruit (12 of 13 patients) and a history of ipsilateral digital ischemia (5 of 13 patients) were common.[]
