15 Possible Causes for Apical Aneurysm - Right Ventricle, Cerebral Embolism

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Thromboembolic events Nonfatal embolic events occurred in 5 patients (5.0%; 1.1%/year), including cerebral (n 3), myocardial (n 1), and renal infarction (n 1).[onlinejacc.org] ICD implantable cardioverter defibrillator; LA left atrium; LV left ventricle; RV right ventricle; SD sudden death; VT ventricular tachycardia.[onlinejacc.org] (E) Electroanatomic endocardial voltage map in the right anterior oblique view of an apical aneurysm patient with recurrent VT.[onlinejacc.org]

  • Atrial Septal Defect

    Apical four-chamber view in transthoracic echocardiography, showing the right atrial appendage aneurysm (A). Right atrium (B) and right ventricle (C) size were normal.[em-consulte.com] Aneurysm of the interauricular septum revealed by a cerebral embolism. Arch Mal Coeur Vaiss. 1973; 66 :169–77.

  • Ventricular Aneurysm

    Cardiac magnetic resonance images revealed a thin-walled, apical aneurysm of right ventricle with multiple septations and marked obliteration of left ventricular apex.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RV, right ventricle.[jstage.jst.go.jp] […] was 200ml, with a giant apical aneurysm, a very low EF (10%) and a medium quantity of pericardial fluid, along with right atria collapse. ( Fig. 2 ) At this point a suspicion[tmj.ro]

  • Atrial Septal Aneurysm

    The apical four chamber view with colour flow Doppler showing the giant interatrial septal aneurysm.[bsecho.org] In the present case of impending paradoxical cerebral embolism, the thrombus penetrating the atrial septal wall was visualized by transesophageal echocardiography.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] An intraatrial aneurysm was demonstrated in the fossa ovalis of a 45-year-old woman who suffered an episode of cerebral embolism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiac Myxoma

    A non-enhancing rounded thrombus within the apex was noted measuring 10 mm along with left apical thinning/aneurysm with dyskinesis (Figure 4).[omicsonline.org] Cardiac myxoma is known to cause repeated events of cerebral embolism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In our patient, aneurysms formed without previous symptoms of cerebral embolism.[ajnr.org]

  • Cardiac Arrhythmia

    In this condition, a reentrant circuit is formed around the characteristic fibro-fatty tissue that has replaced the right ventricle.[revespcardiol.org] In our two patients with PaT cerebral embolisms recurrently developed.[jstage.jst.go.jp] Rare but dreaded complications of cardiac arrhythmia may be: embolism (vascular occlusion by loose blood clots), stroke (cerebral infarction, apoplexy), heart attack (myocardial[ims.uniklinik-freiburg.de]

  • Apical Myocardial Infarction

    […] was 200ml, with a giant apical aneurysm, a very low EF (10%) and a medium quantity of pericardial fluid, along with right atria collapse. ( Fig. 2 ) At this point a suspicion[tmj.ro] Relationship with acute cerebral infarction : It is a well-recognised complication of both cerebral infarction and haemorrhage (16), but embolic cerebral infarction is also[escardio.org] […] grade I, with grade II tricuspid regurgitation and mild pulmonary hypertension (systolic pulmonary arterial pressure – SPAP 40mmHg), the end diastolic volume of the left ventricle[tmj.ro]

  • Pulmonary Atresia

    We describe an infant with pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum and right ventricle-dependent coronary circulation and a left ventricle apical aneurysm who successfully[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Late presentation may rarely occur, and findings may include polycythemia, clubbing, cerebral embolisms, and cerebral abscesses.[emedicine.com] aneurysms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia

    B: right ventriculography discloses dilation of the right ventricle (RV) and "stack of coins" image. C: magnetic resonance image showing apical aneurysm (arrow).[revespcardiol.org] The most common cause of air embolism is introduction of air into the trans-septal sheath.[clinicalpainadvisor.com] 0% to 7%): The first 2 weeks after ablation are considered a high-risk period but typically thromboembolic complications occur in first 24 hours and are a major source of cerebral[clinicalpainadvisor.com]

  • Giant Left Atrium

    […] was 200ml, with a giant apical aneurysm, a very low EF (10%) and a medium quantity of pericardial fluid, along with right atria collapse. ( Fig. 2 ) At this point a suspicion[tmj.ro] We describe a case of a LA thrombus diagnosed 4 weeks after mitral and tricuspid valve repair, complicated by an embolic cerebral infarct.[jtd.amegroups.com] […] grade I, with grade II tricuspid regurgitation and mild pulmonary hypertension (systolic pulmonary arterial pressure – SPAP 40mmHg), the end diastolic volume of the left ventricle[tmj.ro]
