Congrats, Alex. Let us know when you get scanned.
ACThe azygos vein is a large vein with a bicuspid valve in the thoracic cavity (Fig. 3). The azygos system is a paired venous pathway of the posterior thorax that may be affected by numerous congenital and acquired conditions . Contrast-enhanced CT is able to depict anatomical changes in the azygos vein and disordersof the azygos system (Fig. 2) [7-9]. A few articleshave reported reflux of contrast medium into the azygos vein andartifacts to be caused by CM in the azygos vein [10,11]. In addition, previous case reports have suggested that reflux of CM into the azygos vein may be anindicator of abnormal right heart hemodynamics, such as cardiac tamponade [12, 13]. However, Yeh’s group has supported the stance that limited azygos reflux is a non-specific phenomenon.

I've got the papers that are listed in Marie's thread. What I'd really appreciate having some links to are pages that will help me get up to speed understanding the vascular system. I'd like to learn about the basic stuff that this discussion revolves around. I'd like to understand how it's supposed to work first. Please and Thank you. Ken
Right on! No one can deduce cause by effect.My opinion, no matter what the actual cause of something, if a drug attacks it from a different angle, it can appear to be "effective".
I have a date with my neurologist for this (I am now up to 3 concurrent neurologists) on the 16th or 17th of feb. Although we have talked on the phone about nothing but the actual tests, this appointment was made with another assistant, and I have a fear that this may just be for an initial consult; she could not confirm either way.cheerleader wrote:How 'bout you, Cure?
