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.A., 1975).
Similarly, the Carotid bruit
indicator was disposed by the judges.
A left carotid bruit
was detected on neck examination.
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 It sounds like he has a carotid bruit
. This noise is heard over the carotid artery in the neck and is caused by turbulent blood flow.
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.
* Carotid bruit
. This is a sound created by turbulent blood flow in a carotid artery.
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."
* Carotid bruit
. This is caused by turbulence as blood flows into smaller cephalic vessels from the larger aorta.
