236 Possible Causes for Atrial Fibrillation, Carotid Bruit

  • Coronary Atherosclerosis

    Atrial fibrillation In the network meta-analysis, anOPCABG was associated with a reduction of 34% in the 30-day risk of atrial fibrillation compared with OPCABG-HS (OR: 0.66[] Bruits can be heard easily with a stethoscope in the he carotid artery in the neck, the abdominal aorta, and the femoral artery .Check sensation in the feet for numbness,[] fibrillation, renal failure, operation duration, and ICU stay.[]

  • Carotid Stenosis

    Similarly no statin or low-potency statin, SBP 140 mm Hg and/or DBP 90 mm Hg, Hx of atrial fibrillation/flutter, Hx of chronic kidney disease, and PSCS were independent predictors[] […] for significant Carotid Bruit Carotid Bruit AND symptoms suggestive of Carotid Stenosis Degree of stenosis by atherosclerotic Plaque Minimum stenosis causing bruit: 50% ([] fibrillation, cardiomyopathy, or blockage of the tiny arteries inside the brain.[]

  • Carotid Artery Occlusion

    All patients presented with profound neurological deficits and atrial fibrillation.[] Carotid bruits are not sensitive or specific enough to confirm or exclude significant carotid stenoses. [ 3 ] Absence of carotid bruit in patients with cardiovascular disease[] Case 2: A 69-year-old man with chronic atrial fibrillation developed left internal carotid occlusion.[]

  • Carotid Sinus Syncope

    In addition, stable sinus rhythm was obtained in two pts (one with severe atrial fibrillation, another with persistent atrial fibrillation).[] Bruits or Carotid Sinus Syncope?[] fibrillation in one.[]

  • Carotid Embolism

    Atrial fibrillation was also detected on the ECG monitor. Because the onset was sudden and atrial fibrillation was present, we suspected a cardiogenic embolism.[] Carotid bruits are not sensitive or specific enough to confirm or exclude significant carotid stenoses. [ 3 ] Absence of carotid bruit in patients with cardiovascular disease[] Atrial fibrillation was detected in the electrocardiogram. The echocardiogram showed dilation of the left atrium.[]

  • Cardiogenic Syncope

    (Like VVI mode during atrial fibrillation etc).Trouble shooting needs expertise, while VVI is simple, safe, and just effective as well .[] The maneuver is to be avoided if carotid bruits are present.[] Carotid sinus massage should be avoided in patients with previous transient ischaemic attack, stroke within the preceding three months, or with a carotid bruit, except if[]

  • Syncope

    […] with their first episode of atrial fibrillation.[] carotid artery bruits or a history of neurovascular signs or symptoms. [ 10 ] More recent studies reveal carotid artery ultrasounds are still being performed regularly in[] This examination allowed for the diagnosis of an adrenergic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) with an impressive auriculo-ventricular conduction over 260 bpm.[]

  • Hypertension

    atrial fibrillation.[] Carotid bruits may reflect atherosclerotic disease due to longstanding hypertension.[] The examiner may also listen in the neck for carotid bruits (sounds made by a narrowed artery in the neck) and in the abdomen for bruits made by an abdominal aortic aneurysm[]

  • Cerebral Embolism

    OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to identify factors associated with the functional outcomes of patients with cerebral embolism due to nonvalvular atrial fibrillation.[] Neck exam revealed mild jugular venous distention estimated at 9 cm of water and no carotid bruits.[] A carotid bruit is a relative contra-indication and a carotid ultrasound must be performed to further evaluate any patient who is found to have a carotid bruit.[]

  • Transient Ischemic Attack

    Use of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants in atrial fibrillation patients: insights from a specialist atrial fibrillation clinic.[] Blood flow through a narrowed artery is turbulent and this causes a noise called a bruit (carotid bruit).[] Four studies assessed the use of auscultation for carotid bruits to detect carotid artery stenosis 7–10.[]
