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[doi.org]

  • Orthostatic Syncope

    increase with advanced age [ 19, 22 ].[journals.plos.org] 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[journals.plos.org] […] 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[journals.plos.org]

  • 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Peripheral Vascular Disease

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

  • 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The extent of vascular and structural alterations could clearly be delineated in superficial and deep retinal networks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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[emj.bmj.com] […] 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[emj.bmj.com]

  • Fabry Disease

  • Coxa Valga

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

  • 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[reviewofoptometry.com] We aimed to quantify cerebral arterial tortuosity in childhood arterial ischemic stroke, hypothesizing increased tortuosity in dissection.[ingentaconnect.com] […] retinal arteriolar tortuosity.[reviewofoptometry.com]

  • Hemoptysis

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