68 Possible Causes for Acute Myocardial Infarction, Cardiomegaly, Inferior Q Wave

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Electrocardiogram showed right axis deviation, poor R-wave progression, and diffuse ST-segment elevation in the anterior leads, and cardiomegaly was observed by roentgenogram[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] waves , particularly in the inferior (II, III, and aVF) and lateral ( I , aVL, V4-6) leads as signs of a hypertrophic septum Signs of left ventricular hypertrophy (see Sokolow-Lyon[amboss.com] Acute myocarditis may clinically mimic an acute myocardial infarction with chest pain.[radiologyassistant.nl]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    Lateral Q waves are more common than inferior Q waves in HCM.[lifeinthefastlane.com] HCM was also associated with a higher incidence of myocardial infarction ([MI] 1.90 [1.27-2.84]) and coronary revascularisation (2.32 [1.46-3.69]).The absolute Kaplan-Meier[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] AHCM can occur with varied presentations such as chest pain, palpitations, dyspnea, syncope, atrial fibrillation, myocardial infarction, embolic events, ventricular fibrillation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    Key features of alcoholic cardiomyopathy are cardiac hypertrophy and ventricular dilatation, and the disease is manifested mainly as cardiomegaly, congestive heart failure[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Effect of ramipril on mortality and morbidity of survivors of acute myocardial infarction with clinical evidence of heart failure. Lancet 1993;342:821-828. ‎[books.google.it] Abstract Alcoholic cardiomyopathy is characterized by cardiomegaly, disruptions of myofibrillary architecture, reduced myocardial contractility, decreased ejection fraction[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    Chest radiograph showed cardiomegaly. Two- dimensional echocardiography showed marked biatrial enlargement.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Sometimes pathological Q-waves not related to previous myocardial infarction may be observed.[symptoma.com] Pathologic Q waves, not due to previous myocardial infarction, sometimes occur.[merckmanuals.com]
