Patients with asymptomatic carotid bruit
with hypertension/ hyperlidaemia/diabetes mellitus.
Generally, stroke occurs as the first symptom of the disease, and often a carotid bruit
is the only sign that can be seen on physical examination (Branthwaite, M.
Similarly, the Carotid bruit
indicator was disposed by the judges.
A left carotid bruit
was detected on neck examination.
195 *** Cerebrovascular comorbidities Carotid bruit
Asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis may be identified during routine physical examination by the presence of a carotid bruit
(on auscultation) or during carotid duplex ultrasonography screening of high-risk patients, such as coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, and hypertension, because atherosclerosis is frequently manifest at multiple sites of cardiovascular system (see Table 1).
A carotid bruit
is heard when using a stethoscope to listen to blood flow in the artery, which brings blood to the head and neck.
They do not know what a carotid bruit
sounds like--or its significance.
Although a carotid bruit
indicates a higher risk of stroke, it doesn't mean a stroke is imminent.
However, screening of asymptomatic patients is generally accepted in the presence of a carotid bruit
detected at routine physical examination and/or cardiovascular risk factors, such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity, advancing age.
A pulmonary flow murmur, Still's murmur, venous hum, carotid bruit
, and peripheral pulmonary stenosis are benign heart sounds detectable in an office setting, said Dr.
