281 Possible Causes for Atrial Fibrillation, Cardiac Tamponade, Cor Pulmonale

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    The severity of COPD correlates with various arrhythmic manifestations such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and either sustained or nonsustained ventricular tachycardia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Edema in cor pulmonale.

  • Cor Pulmonale

    We present a case of a 43-year-old man with AIDS and advanced cardiovascular involvement who developed severe cor pulmonale and a large pericardial effusion with cardiac tamponade[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In a recent comprehensive review by Hecht 2 cardiac irregularities, particularly atrial fibrillation, are said to be "quite infrequent" in any type of cor pulmonale.[nejm.org] […] lung diseases.

  • Recurrent Pulmonary Embolism

    Cardiac tamponade presents with dyspnea, tachycardia, elevated jugular venous pressure, and pulsus paradoxus. [15] The gold standard for diagnosis is ultrasound.

  • Right-Sided Heart Failure

    In this case we were able to demonstrate myocardial disease by using tissue Doppler echocardiography, even in the presence of cardiac tamponade.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In the patient presented, the symptoms of atrial fibrillation and right-sided heart failure were the first manifestations of hyperthyroidism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In patients with right sided heart failure, differentiating between cor-pulmonale, or cardiac sarcoidosis has important implications to management.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Asthma
