144 Possible Causes for Biventricular Dilation

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDC) is a primary myocardial disease of unknown cause characterized by left ventricular or biventricular dilatation and impaired myocardial[] We report on a rare finding of biventricular thrombi in dilated cardiomyopathy in a patient with human immunodeficiency virus infection in Cameroon.[] Cardiomegaly with marked biventricular dilation and fibrosis were noticeable histopathological findings.[]

  • Familial Isolated Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia

    At this stage, ARVC mimics a biventricular dilated cardiomyopathy leading to congestive heart failure and thromboembolic complications.[] biventricular cardiomyopathy Accordingly, symptoms range from palpitations to syncope and sudden cardiac death.[] […] failure, mimicking dilated cardiomyopathy B) Diagnostic test 1.- Electrocardiogram There are several ECG features in the criteria diagnosis of ARVD: a) T wave inversions[]

  • Right Ventricular Disorder

    In advanced disease stages, biventricular dilatation may resemble dilated cardiomyopathy. The diagnosis is based on the presence of several validated criteria.[] Over time, surviving patients also develop features of right ventricular failure , which may progress to severe biventricular failure and dilated cardiomyopathy.[]

  • Drug-induced Cardiomyopathy

    Echo image demonstrates biatrial and biventricular dilation. Right atrium(RA), Left atrium (LA), left ventricle (LV), Right ventricle(RV).[] We simultaneously performed an echocardiography, which showed good biventricular contractility with no signs of ventricular dilation.[] A transthoracic echocardiogram demonstrated an ejection fraction of 10% with global hypo kinesis, biventricular dilatation, and moderate mitral regurgitation.[]

  • Ruptured Sinus of Valsalva

    Again, volume overload with biventricular dilatation and increased cardiac output were noted.[]

  • Acute Chagas Disease with Myocarditis

    Echocardiogram revealed biventricular dilatation with an EF of 25%. Serological testing was positive for Trypanosoma cruzi .[]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    Echocardiography revealed biatrial and biventricular dilation, a left ventricular end-diastolic diameter of 82 mm, an ejection fraction of 26%, a severe tricuspid regurgitation[] Lower panels: CMR cine imaging showed severe global biventricular systolic dysfunction, with severe LV dilatation and akinesis of the inferolateral walls.[]

  • Panhypopituitarism

    The 2D echocardiography showed mild biventricular dilation with normal ejection fraction suggestive of hemosiderotic cardiomyopathy.[] […] serum ferritin level was markedly raised at 8325 ng/ml (NR: 13-460) and T2 weighted MRI used to assess the severity of iron loading revealed severe hepatic iron loading and dilated[]

  • Endocardial Cushion Defect

    Dilatation of left atrioventricular (not morphologically mitral) valve in double inlet ventricle • Dilatation of right atrioventricular (not morphologically tricuspid)[] […] morphologically tricuspid) valve • Common atrioventricular canal • Common atrioventricular orifice in double inlet ventricle • Common coronary artery orifice • Cor triloculare biventriculare[]

  • Cardiogenic Shock

    We present a unique case of severe biventricular dilation with cardiogenic shock but rapid recovery within 96 hrs.[] An echocardiography confirmed severe biventricular dilation ( Figure 3 ) and dysfunction with an estimated left ventricular ejection fraction (EF) of 30%.[] Cardiogenic shock secondary to acute biventricular failure was diagnosed.[]
