3,939 Possible Causes for Acute Respiratory Failure, Heart Valve Disease, Severely Disproportionate Short Stature

  • Kyphoscoliosis

    This article reports a case study of 'Sue', a 37 year old female who was transferred to a metropolitan hospital's intensive care unit in acute respiratory failure secondary[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of blood in to the heart Partial or complete joint dislocations Restrictive lung disease, because of limited lung expansion and decrease in lung volume Retinal detachment[dovemed.com] short-limb short stature Hydrops fetalis Short palm Enlargement of the proximal femoral epiphysis Decreased cervical spine mobility Osteopenia Sloping forehead Skeletal dysplasia[mendelian.co]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Slowly progressive valvar heart disease can be present for years without causing symptoms. Eventually, valvar heart disease can cause a heart murmur.[rarediseases.org] Short stature is described as disproportionate because the trunk may be shorter than the legs. In severe cases, final height may be less than 4 feet (120 centimeters).[rarediseases.org] Narrowing of the heart valves can progressively make it more difficult for the heart to pump blood and can eventually result in heart failure.[rarediseases.org]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 6

    (requiring additional BMT) in 4 patients, acute respiratory distress syndrome in 3 patients, and death in 4 patients.[jamanetwork.com] Nearly all children have some form of heart disease, usually involving valve dysfunction.[en.wikipedia.org] Short stature is described as disproportionate because the trunk may be shorter than the legs. In severe cases, final height may be less than 4 feet (120 centimeters).[rarediseases.org]

  • Mitral Valve Disease

    The patient needed to be rapidly intubated and was placed on ventilatory support because of acute respiratory failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] According to the American Heart Association, about 5 million Americans are diagnosed with heart valve disease each year.

    Acute kidney injury, septic shock, acute respiratory distress syndrome, and decompensated heart failure were noted in 2 (18.2%), 3 (27.3%), 2 (18.2%), and 1 (9.1%) patients[jgid.org] What is heart valve disease? A valve that is diseased or damaged can affect the flow of blood through the heart.[patient.info] People most at risk for endocarditis are those who have: An artificial heart valve Heart valve disease, including mitral valve prolapse Certain congenital heart diseases Hypertrophic[health.clevelandclinic.org]

    The resultant respiratory failure can easily occur from the underlying progressive nocturnal hypoventilation and hypoxia or from an acute cardiac insufficiency.[emedicine.medscape.com] Hunter's Syndrome; potentially causing hearing loss, thickening of the heart valves leading to a decline in cardiac function, obstructive airway disease, sleep apnea, and[en.wikipedia.org] […] disease in which death usually occurs by the third decade of life (mostly from cardiopulmonary compromise), despite steroid treatment.
