97 Possible Causes for Ankle Edema, Atrial Flutter

  • Hereditary ATTR Amyloidosis

    These increase urine production, so excess salt and water are removed from the body, improving ankle edema and breathlessness.[] They may include: shortness of breath, sometimes just after mild exertion palpitations and abnormal heart rhythms, most frequently atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter leg[] […] swelling (edema) fatigue, nausea, weight loss dizziness and fainting, may occur after exertion, or after eating disrupted sleep angina (chest pain) Sometimes: Eye Rarely:[]

  • Heart Failure

    Increased central venous pressure ( 16 cm H2O at right atrium) · Hepatojugular reflux · Weight loss 4.5 kg in 5 days in response to treatment Minor criteria: · Bilateral ankle[] […] fibrillation Medicinal normalization of the heart rate; possibly rhythmization (electrical/medicinal) Typical atrial flutter Catheter-guided HF ablation Supraventricular[] Atrial fibrillation or flutter Cardiovert if possible. Digoxin 0.125–0.25 mg iv, or β-blocking agent, or amiodarone, may be used to slow AV conduction.[]

  • Mitral Valve Insufficiency

    Swelling of your ankles, feet or abdomen. This is called edema . Swelling may occur in your belly, which may cause you to feel bloated. Rapid weight gain.[] […] heartbeats, atrial fibrillation Swollen feet or swollen ankles Heart murmur, muffled heartbeat Excessive urination Patients should be made aware that (i) mitral regurgitation[] […] of breath, especially during exercise or when you are laying still Fatigue, especially during exercise Cough, often during the night, when in bed Heart palpitations, or fluttering[]

  • Pulmonary Hypertension

    Other symptoms are fatigue, dizziness, swelling in the ankles or legs (edema), bluish lips and skin (cyanosis), chest pain, racing pulse and palpitations.[] Digoxin sometimes is used to control the heart rate if abnormal heart rhythms, such as atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter, occur. Oxygen therapy.[] […] and legs (edema) and fluid in the abdomen (ascites) There are several different types of PH.[]

  • Mitral Valve Stenosis

  • Tricuspid Valve Disease

    An edema most commonly occurs because of gravity in the lower parts of the body, so the legs, the ankles and the lower legs; that’s the most common symptom of tricuspid valve[] Hydrops fetalis was found in six cases and atrial flutter in five. Associated cardiac lesions included pulmonary stenosis in five cases and pulmonary atresia in six.[] Investigations ECG may show evidence of right atrial hypertrophy with tall peaked P waves; arrhythmias (eg, atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter) occur frequently.[]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    These symptoms can include the following: Ankle, feet, and leg swelling (edema) Overall swelling Loss of appetite Shortness of breath (dyspnea), especially with activity Breathing[] A combination of left ventricular hypertrophy and biatrial enlargement with or without left anterior hemiblock is most specific, Atrial flutter or fibrillation, pathologic[] The most common arrhythmia which could be seen with alcohol consumption is atrial fibrillation but other arrhythmias such as PVC, PAC, sinus tachycardia, atrial flutter, ventricular[]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Leg swelling (ankle edema). Liver enlargement. Chest pain. Risk Factors Age over 60. Obesity. Smoking. Alcoholism.[] Patients can have a myriad of arrhythmias, including atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, ventricular ectopy, ventricular tachycardia, and ventricular fibrillation.[]

  • Heart Valve Disease

    Symptoms of heart valve disease may include: Shortness of breath Weakness or dizziness Pressure in the chest Heart palpitations or irregular heartbeat Swelling of the ankles[] Some patients will have neck pulsations, atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter.[] Swelling of your ankles , feet, or abdomen .
