968 Possible Causes for Acute Myocardial Infarction, Cardiomegaly, Sudden Death

  • Cardiomyopathy

    In very few people with cardiomegaly and severe congestive heart failure, a heart transplant may be recommended.[m.webmd.com] A thorough family history of juvenile sudden death, ventricular arrhythmias and ICD implants should always be sought.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acute myocarditis may clinically mimic an acute myocardial infarction with chest pain.[radiologyassistant.nl]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    In the latter case, it may show cardiomegaly, edema, and other findings suggestive of congestive heart failure.[symptoma.com] death. 1,4–6 Several studies have attempted to ascertain the risk of sudden death in the population of asymptomatic patients with severe aortic stenosis.[doi.org] On day 2, she developed acute anterior wall myocardial infarction (MI) with ST elevation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

VSD, 2. severe MR, 3.[slideshare.net] It is often fatal and is mostly recognized at post-mortem examination in young victims of sudden death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] METHODS: In this multicenter trial, we randomly assigned 706 patients who had multivessel disease, acute myocardial infarction, and cardiogenic shock to one of two initial[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypersensitivity Myocarditis

    CXR: Normal cardiac silhouette but pericarditis or overt clinical congestive heart failure is associated with cardiomegaly. Vascular redistribution.[patient.info] Cited by (1) Abstract Eosinophilic myocarditis is a rare cause of sudden unexpected death and characterized by eosinophilic infiltration in the myocardium.[scopemed.org] In one case, death was directly attributed to myocarditis; in the second case, the patient died of an acute myocardial infarct, but myocarditis may have played a contributory[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heart Failure

    Pleural effusion and cardiomegaly were observed. A laboratory analysis revealed anemia with iron deficiency and elevated human parvovirus B19 (B19V) immunoglobulin M.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a case of sudden infant death because of clinically undiagnosed VSD in a seemingly healthy 16-day-old boy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] on Management of Acute Myocardial Infarction).[doi.org]

  • Bacterial Myocarditis

    Cardiomegaly and diminished systolic function occur due to myocardial damage. Typical signs of CHF occur which may progress to shock,arrythmias and sudden death. 6.[slideshare.net] death.[nvic.nl] As with viral myocarditis, this disease can present with signs and symptoms of acute myocardial infarction, complicating the diagnosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
