Hello doctor, I would like to ask you about the double carotid artery plaque formation. Last October, the test result, CDFI lumen filling defect, this test, CDFI lumen filling can be.Is it better than before?
Hello, the common cause of arterial plaque formation in the neck is atherosclerosis. Risk factors for atherosclerosis include age, smoking, hypertension, hyperglycemia, hyperlipidemia, light physical activity and heavy mental work, and family history of early onset of cardiovascular disease, with your age of 18 years old and female, you should not have atherosclerosis so early, from your two examinations, there is improvement, it is recommended not to worry.
This situation is not very easy to judge, but also depends on the size of the plaque changes, because different machines and different people to do the examination is a certain error.Therefore, you need to go to a large hospital to review the ultrasound or do a head and neck CT to clarify the situation of cerebral atherosclerosis.In particular, you should strictly control your weight and waist circumference.
The carotid artery examination had a filling defect in the past and now the filling defect is gone, which is an improvement from the previous one.The most common cause of carotid filling defects is plaque formation.This is mostly seen in middle-aged and elderly people with hypertension, diabetes mellitus and hyperlipidemia.
