Height may be a contributing factor to developing blood clots.

A new study from Sweden published in the American Heart Association journal Circulation suggests that taller people have an increased risk of developing venous thromboembolism, or blood clots in the veins.

The study analyzed information from over 2 million Swedish siblings.

Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure designed to treat kyphosis, the rounding of the back that develops when vertebrae weaken, fracture and collapse. Advanced Radiology uses kyphoplasty to treat fractures and relieve the pain caused by kyphosis.

Peripheral artery disease is a dangerous health condition that causes the narrowing of the arteries in the arms and legs, stomach, and the head. The condition is dangerous because it not only reduces critical blood and oxygen flow to these body areas, but it also increases an individual’s risk of stroke. PAD is especially serious for people with the blood-clotting disorder factor V Leiden.

People who experience migraine headaches with aura may face a 25 percent greater risk of stroke, according to a new study performed by the Department of Clinical Neuroscience at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden.

Double the Pain

The study, published in the journal Brain, focused on twins and their rate of migraine headaches with aura and strokes.

Migraines affect 39 million American adults and children, and 25 percent of people with migraines experience aura along with their pain.

A study conducted by researchers from the University of Surrey has found that a high-sugar diet can change the way the body metabolizes fat, leading to an increased risk of heart disease. The study, published in the journal Clinical Science, suggests that high consumption of sugar alters how the liver functions to break down fat.

Participants in the study consumed a high-sugar diet for 12 weeks. At the end of the study, researchers found that participants had higher levels of fat in their blood and liver than participants who did not eat the high-sugar diet.

If you’re experiencing pain or tingling in your wrists, hands and fingers, you may think you have carpal tunnel syndrome. In reality, you could be suffering from an entirely different condition known as wrist tendonitis. Advanced Radiology treats patients with tendonitis of the wrist and other joints using the ultrasonic knife therapy Tenex TX1.

So, what's the difference between carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis?

At Advanced Radiology, we know that migraine triggers can vary from person to person. Stress, fluorescent lighting, certain smells and changes in the weather can all trigger the onset of head pain. But what about cheese?

Can Cheese Cause Migraines?

Yes. Some types of cheese can cause migraines in some people. The cheeses linked to migraines are certain aged or fermented varieties high in tyramine. Tyramine is a protein byproduct and contributes to migraines because it causes narrowing of the blood vessels. When blood vessels narrow, blood pressure increases and causes headaches and migraines.

Did you know that you can develop tennis elbow without ever setting foot on a tennis court? A large number of tennis elbow cases and other types of tendonitis like jumper’s knee and golfer’s elbow develop as a result of bad form during weightlifting and other workout activities.

Bad form in the gym during lifting weights, squatting, jumping and even using the treadmill or stair stepper can cause muscles and joints to work in ways they weren’t intended. This improper use can wear down connective tissue over time, causing pain, inflammation and even loss of use or mobility. Dr. Budler sees many cases of tendonitis in different joints caused by bad form during exercise.

If you take a good look at your legs, chances are you may find tiny red, blue or purple veins in a delicate web across your thighs, calves and and the backs of your knees. These thin little veins are known as spider veins, and although they are frequently confused with varicose veins, they are completely different. Understanding the differences between spider veins and varicose veins can help you know when to seek treatment for your veins from Advanced Radiology.

Research performed by the American College of Cardiology shows that cardiovascular diseases like heart disease, stroke and peripheral artery disease cause one-third of deaths around the world.

The study reviewed the deaths of every country around the globe over the past 25 years.

The countries with the highest rates of cardiovascular deaths were in Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East, Southern Africa and South America. Although the United States, Canada, Japan and Western Europe experienced lower rates of cardiovascular death over the last 25 years, these decreasing rates have begun to slow down and plateau, according to the ACC.

American and Dutch scientists have found that stripes trigger migraines in some patients. The study is the first of its kind to link a pattern to the condition.

And it's not just stripes on clothing that can cause migraine symptoms, according to the study - stripes on animals like the zebra, stripes in art or architecture, and even bar codes were also proven to cause head pain for some study participants. Other individuals experienced migraines triggered by the seemingly innocuous striped patterns of awnings, lawn chairs and radiators.

Here’s a fact that may surprise you: People who suffer from migraines sneeze more than people who don’t suffer from migraines. It’s true. It happens because migraine sufferers experience higher rates of rhinitis than people without migraines. Dr. Budler often talks to patients with migraines who report the symptoms of rhinitis along with migraine pain.

Back injuries are common in sports. Take German Grand Prix driver Pascal Wehrlein, who suffered a fractured vertebra during a crash in Monaco this May. Slipped disks, strains and sprains can leave players on the bench, but another common back injury for athletes is spinal compression fractures.

What Are Spinal Compression Fractures? 

Compression fractures are fractures that occur when there is a compression force on the vertebrae of the back. When a compression fracture occurs, the affected vertebrae collapse due to the force exerted on them. In most compression fractures, the front part of the bone collapses, leaving the vertebrae a wedge shape.

Many women experience a painful condition known as pelvic congestion syndrome as a side effect of pregnancy. This condition - and a medical treatment known as coil embolization - recently made the news when featured in the UK's Daily Mail. Tiny coils inserted into the neck are proving to be an effective treatment for women with pelvic congestion syndrome. These coils seal off damaged veins to improve circulation, reduce pain and lower the risk of life-threatening complications of varicose veins in the ovaries.

If you have a spinal compression fracture, chances are you are pretty uncomfortable. These fractures are extremely painful, and if left untreated, can severely affect your quality of life. Dr. Budler treats patients with spinal compression fractures who have lived with the pain in hopes that the fracture would heal on its own.
