44 Possible Causes for Vascular Tortuosity Increased

  • Carotid Stenosis

    Mechanisms underlying the increased risk with carotid-artery stenting in very elderly patients probably include vascular tortuosity and severe vascular calcification. 23 The[]

  • Orthostatic Syncope

    increase with advanced age [ 19, 22 ].[] Vascular instability has also been suspected to result in hypotension during ordinary daily activity and was previously interpreted as an important cause of syncope in HCM[] […] medication in older patients, but could also be due to the fact that heart rate response to orthostatic manoeuver is slightly impaired, and arterial compliance and venous system tortuosity[]

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease

    The most prevalent, and non-previous reported, finding was increased arteriolar tortuosity, probably occurs due to systemic vascular impairment in inflammatory bowel disease[]

  • Peripheral Vascular Disease

    tortuosity.[] CONCLUSIONS: The SoloPath sheath system permits transfemoral TAVR in patients with PAD small caliber ileofemoral vessels and vascular tortuosity.[] BACKGROUND: For patients with increased surgical risk, TAVR is associated with a higher 1-year survival rate than surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR).[]

  • Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion

    Despite presenting at different time frames, the authors found common imaging findings consisting of vascular hypoperfusion, increased tortuosity, and telangiectasia in all[] The extent of vascular and structural alterations could clearly be delineated in superficial and deep retinal networks.[]

  • Retinal Artery Embolism

    The potential benefits of paracentesis include a dramatic drop in IOP, and dilatation of the retinal arteries because of the vascular tortuosity resulting from distortion[] […] of the globe. 32 However, a maximum increase in retinal arterial volume flow of only 20% has been estimated from animal studies, and a rise in perfusion pressure of less than[]

  • Fabry Disease

    […] lesions (angiokeratoma, Figure 1) Eyes Corneal/lenticular opacities (seen on slit lamp examination, Figure 2) Vascular tortuosity (retina, conjunctiva) Kidneys Microalbuminuria[] The milder disease and increase in the range of clinical manifestations among females is likely a reflection of variable patterns of X-inactivation.[] , proteinuria Impaired concentration ability Increased urinary GL-3 excretion Renal hyperfiltration (early), decrease in glomerular filtration rate Heart ECG abnormalities[]

  • Coxa Valga

    Other cardiovascular abnormalities may include patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) (in 50%), pericardial effusion (20%), and increased vascular tortuosity.[]

  • Arterial Tortuosity Syndrome

    Observable changes in retinal vascular architecture, such as increased retinal vein caliber (decreased artery-to-vein ratio), retinal vascular tortuosity, increased prominence[] We aimed to quantify cerebral arterial tortuosity in childhood arterial ischemic stroke, hypothesizing increased tortuosity in dissection.[] […] retinal arteriolar tortuosity.[]

  • Hemoptysis

    Enlargement and marked tortuosity of bronchial arteries, and increased arterial blood flow have been observed.[] In chronic inflammatory or infectious lung diseases, many alterations in vascular anatomy may occur.[] In addition, vascular anastomoses between bronchial arteries and pulmonary veins, usually present in normal lungs, may become prominent, and new collaterals may develop.[]
