Avatar_f_tn Anyways, the doctor then decided to order a CTA of the head, neck and aortic arch as one last test since he could not find the cause of my bruit. Ultrasound did not show blockages in my neck and I passed the stress test. A couple weeks ago I received the results of CT angiography and was told that things looked good. Today I picked up a CD copy of the CT scan so that I can have it on file.

Avatar_m_tn Technique: The patient underwent angiography on a Philips Brilliance 64 slice CT Scanner. The patient was imaged from the aortic arch to the diaphragm. Advanced 2D and 3D post-processing was done on the workstation. This study focuses solely on the vascular structures. Interpretation: There is a focal, saccular dissection of the distal thoracic aorta at the diaphragmatic hiatus, extending into the proximal abdominal aorta. The dissection is exclusively anterior and measures 4.

976897_tn?1379171202 You are absolutely correct that most patients have the option of having coronary angiography performed from either the femoral (leg) or radial (arm) artery access sites. For the femoral site, the catheter is introduced via a sheath in the femoral artery, and is advanced up the abdominal aorta, over the aortic arch, and dye is then injected into the coronary arteries. For the radial site, the right radial artery is most often used.
Avatar_n_tn So he organised another echo and a treadmill test. Results of echo/treadmill The Aorta (aortic arch) is measuring at 43mm (was also 43mm a year ago, but think it may have been approx. 38mm immediately post-op in 2001). My exercise capacity and heart rate measurements were both perfect during the treadmill test. There was also no evidence of any arythemia. However, my systolic Blood Pressure reached a maximun of 240/250 during the 18 minute test.

Avatar_n_tn Dear Khurram, thank you for your question. It sounds like you have an anastamotic narrowing of the surgical repair of coarctation of the aorta. With an end to end anastamosis of the aorta during a repair of a coarctation, scar tissue can form which can narrow the aorta to cause a new pressure gradient after the surgery.
Avatar_f_tn However, there may be a common origin of the brachiocephalic and left common carotid arteries from the aortic arch. Flow-related signal is identified with the visualized cervical portions of the carotid and vertebral arteries. There is no evidence of occlusion or significant stenosis of these vessels. Superior cervical portion of the ICAs appear to measure on the order of 4 mm on the right and 3.5 mm on the left.
