10 Possible Causes for Apical Impulse Displaced, Increased Area of Cardiac Dullness

  • Cardiomyopathy

    […] precordial impulse that is displaced laterally and usually is abnormally forceful and enlarged Systolic ejection crescendo-decrescendo murmur Holosystolic murmur at the apex[] apical impulse, 13,41 muffled heart sounds 41 with a third heart sound, 13,41 a mitral regurgitation murmur 13,41 or signs of pulmonary congestion. 13 Signs of systemic venous[] […] 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[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews Background A promising approach to the treatment of chronic ischaemic heart disease and congestive heart failure is the use of stem cells. The last decade has seen a plethora of randomised controlled trials developed worldwide, which have generated conflicting results.[…][]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    apical impulse, 13,41 muffled heart sounds 41 with a third heart sound, 13,41 a mitral regurgitation murmur 13,41 or signs of pulmonary congestion. 13 Signs of systemic venous[] […] with the degree of myocardial dysfunction. 39 Occasionally presentation may also be with acute pulmonary edema 41 or arrhythmias. 13,40,42 Physical examination can reveal a displaced[]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    Abstract BACKGROUND Ischemic cardiomyopathy is characterized by myocyte loss, reactive cellular hypertrophy, and ventricular scarring. However, the relative contribution of these tissue and cellular processes to late failure remains to be determined. METHODS AND RESULTS Ten hearts were obtained from individuals[…][]

  • Primary Cardiomyopathy

    Abstract Eleven patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy and eight patients with idiopathic congestive cardiomyopathy underwent extensive neuromuscular studies to determine if a skeletal myopathy is associated with uncomplicated primary cardiomyopathy. The clinical examination revealed peripheral[…][]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    Cardiac percussion and palpation reveal evidence of an enlarged heart with a laterally displaced and diffuse point of maximal impulse.[] Auscultation can help to reveal the apical murmur of mitral regurgitation and the lower parasternal murmur of tricuspid regurgitation secondary to papillary muscle displacement[]

  • Cardiomegaly

    We studied the clinical and radiologic features of five infants with a large opaque left hemithorax due to the combination of cardiomegaly and atelectasis. The causes of cardiomegaly were cardiomyopathy (two patients), congestive heart failure due to fluid overload, congenital mitral insufficiency, and idiopathic[…][]

Australian and New Zealand researchers are teaming up to tackle the challenge of developing a vaccine for rheumatic fever. The Coalition to Advance New Vaccines for Group A[…][]

  • Peripartum Cardiomyopathy

    apical impulse The pathogenesis of post-partum cardiomyopathy is uncertain, with genetic factors, sympathetic tone, hormones, and malnutrition all suggested as contributing[] apical impulse, right ventricular heave, murmurs of mitral and tricuspid regurgitation, third heart sound, pulmonary rales, and peripheral edema. 7 Electrocardiography usually[] […] clinical picture consistent with congestive hemodynamics most commonly within a month after delivery: exertional dyspnea orthopnea, jugular venous distension pulmonary rales displaced[]

  • Large Ventricular Septal Defect

    Prominent apical impulse due to increased LV output to compensate for left-to-right shunt. Apex is laterally displaced as heart enlarges.[]
