Avatar n tn That's not super alarming. "Mild" really is mild, in your case, it seems. The aorta normally enlarges with age, so it may just be normal aging that accounts for your mild ectasia. If you happen to be a large individual, then you will naturally have a larger aorta, so that's part of the equation, also. Do you know if the aortic valve is functioning normally? If so, that's another good sign.

Duct ectasia can cause inverted nipple and is a condition in which the lactiferous duct becomes blocked or clogged.

Avatar m tn s saved many patients from having to undergo corneal transplants as a result of their keratoconus or corneal ectasia. They work like help bars to enable the cornea to remain stable.

The expense of a corneal cross-linking system for keratoconus or corneal ectasia can run from $2,500 to $4,000 per eye.
1175033 tn?1492201228 I am wondering if maybe the disease presents like a different disease in women. It also has other complications similar to EDS, like Dural Ectasia. (I think this is where my Tarlov cyst falls into all of this). Severe cases of Dural Ectasia can even cause CSF leakage leading to Chairi like presentation on MRI with the cerebral tonsils and hind brain crowding . Dural Ectasia also can lead to other types of spinal cord cysts because the dura is weaker than in a normal person.
Avatar f tn Hi, Colonic inertia is a condition in which the nerves and/or muscles of the colon do not work normally. As a result, the contents of the colon are not propelled through the colon normally. The cause of colonic inertia is unclear. In some cases, the muscles or nerves of the colon are diseased. Colonic inertia also may be the result of the chronic use of stimulant laxatives .Please consult a neurologist for the review of the EMG results and get a nerve conduction study done .
Avatar n tn There is no clear cut association between hysterectomy and colonic inertia. Some of the causes of colonic inertia include inadequate water intake, inadequate fiber, lack of physical activity, increased stress, hypothyroidism, eating large amounts of dairy products, irritable bowel syndrome, neurological diseases and depression. Avoiding dairy products, warm liquids, fruits and vegetables and drnking plenty of water helps.
Avatar f tn s caves bilaterally, these follow CSF intensity on all sequences and the appearance likely relates dual ectasia. This also likely accounts for a fairly generous size pituitary fossa/suprasellar cistern. Small amount of CSF in the optic nerve sheaths bilaterally but no overt ectasia of these. Potentially this dual ectasi could be contributing to the symptoms of diplopia. Alternatively a demyelinating process could b contributing.
