Carotid artery stenosis

Less common symptoms are artery sounds (bruits), or ringing in the ears (tinnitus).

Aortic aneurysm

A bruit may be heard from the turbulent flow in the aneurysm.

Median arcuate ligament syndrome

Coeliac artery compression syndrome
The abdominal pain may be related to meals, may be accompanied by weight loss, and may be associated with an abdominal bruit heard by a clinician.

Tinnitus

Pulsatile tinnitus can be a symptom of intracranial vascular abnormalities and should be evaluated for irregular noises of blood flow (bruits).

Fibromuscular dysplasia

Arterial fibromuscular dysplasiaFibromuscular dysplasia of arteries
The main symptoms associated with renal FMD are secondary hypertension and bruits that can be heard with a stethoscope over the abdomen or flanks.

Carotid bruit

carotid
A carotid bruit is a vascular murmur sound (bruit) heard over the carotid artery area on auscultation during systole.

Souffle (heart sound)

funic souffleSouffleuterine souffle
It is particularly used to describe vascular murmurs or transmitter heart sounds which occur during pregnancy, either from the uterus and breasts of the mother, or from the fetus.

Auscultation

The bruit may be heard ("auscultated") by securely placing the head of a stethoscope to the skin over the turbulent flow, and listening.

Stethoscope

The bruit may be heard ("auscultated") by securely placing the head of a stethoscope to the skin over the turbulent flow, and listening.

Systole

Most bruits occur only in systole, so the bruit is intermittent and its frequency dependent on the heart rate.

Fever

Anything increasing the blood flow velocity such as fever, anemia, hyperthyroidism, or physical exertion, can increase the amplitude of the bruit.

Anemia

Anything increasing the blood flow velocity such as fever, anemia, hyperthyroidism, or physical exertion, can increase the amplitude of the bruit.

Hyperthyroidism
