Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
This is Dr. David
retrograde flow to common femoral and common iliac arteries is not dangerous
and can happen after femoral bipass graft surgeries.
I would see a vascular surgeon and get a doppler ultrasound of the area
but I bet the retrograde flow is normal.
Will I need medical Intervention as you say retrograde flow is normsal
you will not need medical intervention if the retrograde flow is normal.
if the flow is normal and there is no narrowing of the flow, then you are fine.
What happens if there is narrowing
then the artery might need to be openned.
but it doesn't sound like there is narrowing.
do you have any other questions?
OK thanks doctor
