93 Possible Causes for Apical Impulse Displaced

  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus

    impulse is laterally displaced; a thrill may be present in the suprasternal notch or in the left infraclavicular region The first heart sound (S 1 ) is typically normal,[] […] following: If the left-to-right shunt is large, precordial activity is increased, with the magnitude of increased activity related to the magnitude of left-to-right shunt The apical[]

  • Peripartum Cardiomyopathy

    apical impulse, right ventricular heave, murmurs of mitral and tricuspid regurgitation, third heart sound, pulmonary rales, and peripheral edema. 7 Electrocardiography usually[] […] hypodynamic apical impulse in 72% and gallop rhythm in 92% of the patients.[] […] apoptosis, but none have been proven. 7 Physical examination often reveals tachycardia and tachypnea, elevated or reduced blood pressure, increased jugular venous pressure, displaced[]

  • Hypertensive Heart Disease

    Later in the course of disease, when significant systolic LV dysfunction supervenes, the apical impulse is displaced laterally, owing to LV dilatation.[]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    […] precordial impulse that is displaced laterally and usually is abnormally forceful and enlarged Systolic ejection crescendo-decrescendo murmur Holosystolic murmur at the apex[] […] gallop is common in children but signifies decompensated CHF in adults; S4 is frequently heard Jugular venous pulse revealing a prominent a wave Double carotid arterial pulse Apical[]

  • Secondary Cardiomyopathy

    To identify new prognostic indicators in idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and secondary cardiomyopathy. Serum concentrations of aminoterminal propeptides of type III procollagen and the 7S domain of type IV collagen (7S collagen)--which have recently been used as indicators of collagen matrix turnover in[…][]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    The authors present a case of carnitine transporter deficiency, which was unmasked after an episode of respiratory distress resistant to treatment with bronchodilators. Chest radiograph showed cardiomegaly; electrocardiogram showed left ventricular hypertrophy and echocardiography revealed dilated[…][]

  • Acute Myocarditis

    A young woman presented with fulminant heart failure. Transthoracic echocardiography revealed severe left ventricular dysfunction with a mass adjacent to the basal anterior wall, near the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT). The cause of the acute heart failure and mass was unclear. Transesophageal[…][]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    In patients with non-ischemic cardiomyopathy (NICM), risk stratification for sudden cardiac death (SCD) and selection of patients who would benefit from prophylactic implantable cardioverter-defibrillators remains challenging. We aim to discuss the evidence of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR)-derived myocardial scar[…][]

  • Primary Cardiomyopathy

    This study examined the value of resting thallium-201 imaging in differentiating patients with primary cardiomyopathy from those with ischemic cardiomyopathy. There were 15 patients with primary cardiomyopathy (group I); 20 with chronic CAD (group II); and 25 with acute Q wave myocardial infarction (group III). All[…][]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    A 56-year-old man was admitted because of palpitations and dyspnea. A 12-lead electrocardiogram showed irregular wide QRS complex tachycardia with a slur at the initial portion of the QRS complex. He had preexisting long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation, but early excitation syndrome had never been noted.[…][]
