90 Possible Causes for Apical Impulse Displaced, Congestive Heart Failure

  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus

    The patient was diagnosed with congestive heart failure (ejection fraction, 36 %) and PDA (9.7 mm in diameter). TEVAR was successfully performed to exclude the PDA.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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,[emedicine.medscape.com] This condition, as a constellation of findings , is called congestive heart failure .[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Peripartum Cardiomyopathy

    apical impulse, right ventricular heave, murmurs of mitral and tricuspid regurgitation, third heart sound, pulmonary rales, and peripheral edema. 7 Electrocardiography usually[cathlabdigest.com] Background A 49-year-old woman presented at hospital, 8 days after giving birth to twins, with signs and symptoms of congestive heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Management of PPCM is similar to that of congestive heart failure with a few exceptions, such as avoiding the use of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors during pregnancy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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.[emedicine.medscape.com] A 1.5-year-old girl developed congestive heart failure 9 months after she presented with hypertension. The hypertension was caused by a renal artery stenosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Nephrectomy proved to be the treatment of choice for hypertension and congestive heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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[emedicine.medscape.com] Congestive heart failure may occur in the late stages of the disorder.[symptoma.com] heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    All of these types of cardiomyopathies can cause severe congestive heart failure.[womensheart.org] This is technically improper use of the term cardiomyopathy; however, it is much easier to say/write than "chronic systolic congestive heart failure from ischemic heart disease[healio.com] The progressive stretch of the heart’s myocardium reduces the volume of the cardiac output contributing to the development of congestive heart failure.[symptoma.com]

  • Secondary Cardiomyopathy

    […] left ventricle, myocardial dysfunction, and congestive heart failure . hypertrophic cardiomyopathy an increase in heart muscle weight, particularly of the left ventricle[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Congestive heart failure in rickets caused by vitamin D deficiency . Monatsschr Kinderheilkd 1989 ; 137 : 108 – 110 . 8.[cambridge.org] Keywords Cocaine Dilated cardiomyopathy Congestive heart failure Catecholamine Background More than 14 million people worldwide, mostly within the age range of 15 to 64 years[bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Congestive heart failure and malignant arrhythmias are the most widespread complications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] heart failure review, section on treatment.[healio.com] heart failure (see pathophysiology section).[healio.com]

  • Acute Myocarditis

    We reported the case of a 12-year-old girl with congestive heart failure, acute myocarditis and pericardial effusion as a primary manifestation of SLE.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 60-year-old man presented with pneumonia and congestive heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Antiarrhythmic drugs may be required, as well as therapy to combat congestive heart failure.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    Abstract Dilated cardiomyopathy, owing to any cause, usually culminates in the clinical syndrome of congestive heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, about 5 months later, the patient developed congestive heart failure, which progressed rapidly and irreversibly, with death at postoperative month 6.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    This was associated with clinical resolution of congestive heart failure and a decrease in cardiac and left ventricular size documented by chest x-ray and echocardiography[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When frequent hospital admissions of patients with acute congestive heart failure who also had alcoholic cardiomyopathy were observed at John Cochran Veterans Administration[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
