Lower Extremity Arteriosclerosis

Arteriosclerosis of Lower Extremity


Presentation

  • The aim of the present study was to investigate circulating OLFM2 levels in lower extremity arteriosclerosis obliterans (LEASO) patients and the association of OLFM2 with postoperative restenosis in patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Morteza Naghavi and leading authorities from the Society for Heart Attack Prevention and Eradication (SHAPE) present a new paradigm for the screening and primary prevention of asymptomatic atherosclerosis.[books.google.com]
  • The present report, which is an analysis of 100 patients with arteriosclerosis subjected to this operation, is presented to add to the evidence, already in the literature, 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 of the value of the procedure in this disease.It is hoped[nejm.org]
  • In This Section Upper extremity vascular disease is relatively uncommon compared to lower extremity vascular disease, but presents a unique diagnostic challenge for physicians.[hopkinsmedicine.org]
  • Lower extremity arterial occlusive disease (occurring in the legs and feet) is often present in conjunction with other conditions, such as carotid artery disease and heart disease.[lifebridgehealth.org]
Coronary Artery Disease
  • In conclusion, angiographic evaluation of the coronary artery disease in patients with lower extremity arteriosclerosis is necessary because of the high chance of coronary artery disease and difficulty in the prediction of coronary artery disease with[synapse.koreamed.org]
  • Despite recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of symptomatic atherosclerosis, available traditional screening methods for early detection and treatment of asymptomatic coronary artery disease are grossly insufficient and fail to identify the[books.google.com]

Limb Pain
  • BACKGROUND: Ketamine in sub-dissociative doses has been shown to have analgesic effects in various pain conditions, including neuropathic and phantom-limb pain, where conventional treatment has often failed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Toe Pain
  • Painful, non-bleeding sores on the feet or toes (most often black) that are slow to heal Paleness of the skin or blue color in the toes or foot ( cyanosis ) Shiny, tight skin Thick toenails Blood tests may show high cholesterol or diabetes.[medlineplus.gov]
Falling
  • Symptoms of Arteriosclerosis There are three main types of related diseases that fall into the broader category of arteriosclerosis: atherosclerosis, Mönckeberg medial calcific sclerosis and arteriolosclerosis. ( 3 ) Atherosclerosis, which occurs when[draxe.com]
Vascular Disease
  • Causes of Upper Extremity Vascular Disease The most common causes of Upper extremity Vascular Disease are: Atherosclerosis Embolic disease There are other systemic diseases and anatomic abnormalities that can cause upper extremity vascular disease including[hopkinsmedicine.org]
  • Admitting diagnosis is diabetic peripheral vascular disease. An ultrasound doppler was performed, revealing mild to moderate arteriosclerosis of the lower extremities.[codebusters.com]
  • The type of atherosclerosis known as peripheral arterial disease (PAD) , peripheral vascular disease (PVD) and lower extremity vascular disease occurs in the vessels that carry blood to the arms and .[my.clevelandclinic.org]
  • As vessels become thickened, a disease known as Peripheral Vascular Disease ( PVD) is where there is a loss of elasticity and gradually interferes with blood flow.[pedors.com]
  • One such opportunity is the documentation of peripheral vascular disease (PVD). Documenting PVD without further specificity in ICD-10 codes to I73.9, Peripheral Vascular Disease, Unspecified.[capstoneperformancesystems.com]
Cyanosis
  • […] findings may include: Calf muscles that shrink (wither or atrophy ) Hair loss over the legs, feet, and toes Painful, non-bleeding sores on the feet or toes (most often black) that are slow to heal Paleness of the skin or blue color in the toes or foot ( cyanosis[medlineplus.gov]
Leg Pain
  • pain Leg pain that does not go away, even when you are not walking or moving (called rest pain) Legs that are red, hot, or swollen New sores/ulcers Signs of infection (fever, redness, general ill feeling ) Symptoms of arteriosclerosis of the extremities[medlineplus.gov]
  • 18 Jun 2013 Scenario: Patient admitted for evaluation of bilateral lower extremity leg pain. Admitting diagnosis is diabetic peripheral vascular disease.[codebusters.com]
  • If you have atherosclerosis in the arteries in your arms and legs, you may have symptoms of peripheral artery disease, such as leg pain when walking (claudication).[mayoclinic.org]
  • pain when walking Who's at risk of atherosclerosis Exactly why and how arteries become clogged is unclear.[nhs.uk]
  • When someone does experience symptoms of arteriosclerosis, these can include: chest pain or pressure ( angina ) sudden numbness or weakness in your arms or legs difficulty speaking or slurred speech drooping muscles in your face leg pain when walking[draxe.com]
Foot Ulcer
  • ulcer Ischemic foot ulcer due to atherosclerosis of native artery of limb Ischemic leg ulcer Ischemic midfoot ulcer due to atherosclerosis of native artery of limb Ischemic ulcer of skin Limb pain at rest due to atherosclerosis of native artery Skin[icdlist.com]
Tingling
  • When PAD becomes severe, you may have: Impotence Pain and cramps at night Pain or tingling in the feet or toes, which can be so severe that even the weight of clothes or bed sheets is painful Pain that is worse when you elevate your legs, and improves[medlineplus.gov]

Prognosis

  • Perioperative complications after aorto-iliac stenting: associated factors and impact on follow-up cardiovascular prognosis.[shinshu-u.ac.jp]
  • Typically, Mönckeberg's arteriosclerosis is not associated with symptoms unless complicated by atherosclerosis, calciphylaxis, or accompanied by some other disease. [5] However, the presence of Mönckeberg's arteriosclerosis is associated with poorer prognosis[en.wikipedia.org]

Epidemiology

  • Epidemiological studies have used the ratio of ankle to brachial blood pressure ( ankle brachial pressure index, ABPI or ABI) as an indicator of arterial calcification with ABPI 1.3 to 1.5 being used as a diagnostic criterion depending on the study. [[en.wikipedia.org]
