87 Possible Causes for Apical Impulse Displaced, Left Ventricular Hypertrophy

  • 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,[emedicine.medscape.com] The following diagnostic modalities are used in the examination of PDA patients: Electrocardiography (ECG): A left ventricular hypertrophy may be demonstrated by voltage in[symptoma.com] ECG is often normal in small or moderate PDA but there may be signs of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH).[patient.info]

  • 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] The clinical usefulness of myocardial TG content measurements in patients with left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) has not been fully investigated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] To evaluate the value of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI)-assessed left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) in differentiating between hypertensive heart disease and hypertrophic[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] Fabry disease (FD) and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) are two diseases with a different pathophysiology, both cause left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and myocardial fibrosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] for severe concentric left ventricular hypertrophy with diastolic dysfunction consistent with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Biatrial enlargement Left ventricular hypertrophy or biventricular enlargement Left bundle branch block ( RBBB can also occur). Left axis deviation.[lifeinthefastlane.com] ventricular hypertrophy (see Sokolow-Lyon criterion ) Left bundle branch block Ventricular tachycardia or atrial fibrillation Echocardiography Confirmatory test Asymmetrically[amboss.com] ECG will show left ventricular hypertrophy.[aafp.org]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Chest radiograph showed cardiomegaly; electrocardiogram showed left ventricular hypertrophy and echocardiography revealed dilated cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Biatrial enlargement Left ventricular hypertrophy or biventricular enlargement Left bundle branch block ( RBBB can also occur). Left axis deviation.[lifeinthefastlane.com] The changes of right ventricular hypertrophy are masked by left ventricular dominance; however, this patient had four-chamber dilatation on echocardiography.[lifeinthefastlane.com]

  • Mitral Valve Insufficiency

    Left ventricular hypertrophy may also be present.[healio.com] For instance, the electrocardiogram (ECG) in long standing mitral regurgitation may show evidence of left atrial enlargement and left ventricular hypertrophy.[slideshare.net] Eventually, these patients develop eccentric left ventricular hypertrophy and worsened contractility .[openanesthesia.org]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    Left ventricular muscle cell hypertrophy was accomplished through a 16% and 51% increase in myocyte diameter and length, whereas right ventricular myocyte hypertrophy was[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Beware of encoders What about a patient with left ventricular hypertrophy due to increased work caused by aortic stenosis?[hcpro.com] ventricular hypertrophy.[journals.plos.org]

  • Left Ventricular Hypertrophy

    (LVH) ECG (Example 1) Left Ventricular Hypertrophy (LVH) ECG (Example 2) Left Ventricular Hypertrophy (LVH) ECG (Example 3) Left Ventricular Hypertrophy (LVH) ECG (Example[healio.com] Patient Information Left Ventricular Hypertrophy on ECG Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) means that the muscle of the left pumping chamber of the heart (left ventricle)[childheartassociates.com] Left ventricular hypertrophy can be diagnosed on ECG with good specificity.[healio.com]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    ST segment and T wave abnormalities, left ventricular hypertrophy, biatrial enlargement, left atrial enlargement, premature ventricular contractions, prolonged PR interval[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Electrocardiogram Can have a variety of ECG abnormalities, the most common left ventricular hypertrophy with ST-T abnormalities, also see low voltage, atrial fibrillation,[healthfrom.com] ventricular hypertrophy, which could've developed in association with drinking.[soberrecovery.com]

  • 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] No valvular disease or left ventricular hypertrophy was detected.[bjcardio.co.uk] Left ventricular hypertrophy by electrocardiographic voltage criteria was present in 66% and ST-T wave abnormalities in 96% of the patients.[dx.doi.org]
