Customer Question
before it splits in two...
I had a full/true anersysm in the brachial artery just before it splits in two in the right arm. They repaired the aneurysm and performed a bypass on the other side of it. One year later I can see the pulses of the artery under the skin. This is something new I saw. Should I go see the surgeon?

Hello,
Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
Yes, it is uncommon to split in the arm.
The pulsation can be due to dilation & tortuousness of artery in the bypass channel.
I would suggest to get it examined by surgeon.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.

I was hoping for more detail about the possibility of whats happening. I have started for the last month doing push ups.
Health Professional: Dr. Saha, Doctor (MD) replied 3 years ago
After the repair the blood is flowing through the new channels.
This would also flow through the arteries present under the skin.
The volume of blood has increased through these arteries.
Work out would increase flow too.
So they become dilated gradually to accommodate it.
Any obstruction to flow or ectasia/ aneurysm needs to be checked by surgeon.
Ultrasound doppler study, angio may be needed if surgeon feels.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
