Flashcards in Arteriosclerosis Deck (10):
1

Poor circulation leads to:

Decubitus ulcers; Odours; Gangrene (Dry/Wet); Amputation

2

Narrow arteries may trap coagula

Fluid distribution = poor

3

Can lead to ruptured aneurysm

Causes fluid loss -> multi-point injection

4

Arteries may be too sclerosed to use

Femoral injection not recommended

5

Treatment: Use R common carotid

Widest vessel

6

Treatment: Use strong solutions

Ensures preservation despite poor distribution

7

Treatment: Use fluid dyes

Allows tracing of distribution

8

Treatment: Manipulate injection pressure/rate-of-flow

Maximize fluid distribution

9

Treatment: Use co-injection fluids

Buffers, conditioners, surfactants

10

Handle vessels carefully to minimize damage

Use ligatures instead of hemostats/clamps
