In the past tricuspid artery angiography (or angiography) was used to identify heart disease and blockages. These procedures are still in use but most of them use computer imaging as a way of determining where the problem lies. With the newer procedures, they are more accurate and quicker than the older methods. However, it is important for you to understand the types of problems that can be diagnosed through tricuspid artery angiography.
The arteries in the neck, lower back and hips can be identified using the use of a trichogram. This can be done in a doctor’s office under medical supervision. In some instances you may be asked to wear a special camera or mask so that the trichogram cannot be seen by anyone else. The trichogram will be sent to a diagnostic laboratory so that it can be interpreted. You will probably need to get a second trichogram done as well in order to be sure that the results are accurate.
If a doctor determines that you do have trichomastia, they will often refer you to a specialist for further testing and possibly a diagnosis of angina or heart disease. They will use a dye-coupled imaging system that will show your blood flow. It is possible that this will show if your heart is failing.
During a trichogram, a stethoscope will also be used to listen for any sounds that may indicate a heart attack. If you feel pain in the chest, a physician will make note of this and the trichogram can be sent to a laboratory for testing.
There is another type of trichomyopathy that can be used when you go into a doctor’s office for trichomastia. This is called trichotillomania and is an obsessive compulsive disorder. This is where you become obsessed with washing your hands or touching objects that have been touched. A trichogram will show your blood flow during this time.
A trichoplasty can correct problems with narrowing of the arteries or the narrowed or blocked passage of blood through the veins in the legs. The doctor will create a scar in the area to reduce this problem. They will then remove the excess tissue so that the blood flow is normal.
Once you are fully cleared and able to have a trichoscope exam, you will be able to return to work on a daily basis and live a normal life. However, it is important to keep up with your medications because if you notice an increased heart rate or you experience pain in the chest you should call your doctor immediately.
The condition can cause many medical issues, especially if it is caused by a high cholesterol level. When you take medication for that you may want to talk to your doctor about an oral medication like Advair or Lipitor to reduce cholesterol in the blood stream.
You may have been told that medical treatments cannot stop your trichophilia. This is a misconception and there are treatments that can.
For example, your doctor may suggest a blood pressure monitor. These monitors measure the pressure in your body at different points and can help your doctor determine if your body is working properly or not. If the levels are too high or too low, your doctor may suggest a medical procedure or medication.
Trichologist exams are necessary for those who are suffering from trichomastia. If you feel like you need one, call your physician to discuss it with them. They will make sure you have no health issues that need to be overlooked. and that your trichology is accurate.
