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

  • 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.[] The clinical usefulness of myocardial TG content measurements in patients with left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) has not been fully investigated.[] To evaluate the value of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI)-assessed left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) in differentiating between hypertensive heart disease and hypertrophic[]

  • 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[] Fabry disease (FD) and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) are two diseases with a different pathophysiology, both cause left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and myocardial fibrosis[] […] for severe concentric left ventricular hypertrophy with diastolic dysfunction consistent with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.[]

  • Cardiomyopathy

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

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

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

  • Mitral Valve Insufficiency

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

  • 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[] Beware of encoders What about a patient with left ventricular hypertrophy due to increased work caused by aortic stenosis?[] ventricular hypertrophy.[]

  • 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[] 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)[] Left ventricular hypertrophy can be diagnosed on ECG with good specificity.[]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

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

  • Peripartum Cardiomyopathy

    apical impulse, right ventricular heave, murmurs of mitral and tricuspid regurgitation, third heart sound, pulmonary rales, and peripheral edema. 7 Electrocardiography usually[] No valvular disease or left ventricular hypertrophy was detected.[] Left ventricular hypertrophy by electrocardiographic voltage criteria was present in 66% and ST-T wave abnormalities in 96% of the patients.[]
