11 Possible Causes for Biventricular Hypertrophy, Polycythemia, Systolic Thrill at Lower Left Sternal Border

  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus

    A large PDA may be associated with signs of biventricular hypertrophy (BVH) and in those with pulmonary hypertension, right ventricular hypertrophy (RVH) may be present.[patient.info] In the patient with a large ductus arteriosus and elevated pulmonary artery pressure, signs of right atrial enlargement and biventricular hypertrophy are frequently present[doi.org] ECG is often normal in small or moderate PDA but there may be signs of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH).[patient.info]

Aortic ejection click.[patient.info] Chronic hypoxemia-induced secondary polycythemia and the consequent increase in blood hyperviscosity predisposed this patient to PE.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Large Ventricular Septal Defect

    With large VSDs the ECG shows biventricular hypertrophy (BVH) with or without LAH.[patient.info] 3 to 4/6 holosystolic murmur (with or without thrill) at the lower left sternal border; this murmur is usually audible within the first few days of life (see table Heart[merckmanuals.com] In addition, neonates have a relative polycythemia. The elevated pulmonary resistance usually declines to adult levels by 6-8 weeks.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Ventricular Septal Defect

    With large VSDs the ECG shows biventricular hypertrophy (BVH) with or without LAH.[patient.info] 3 to 4/6 holosystolic murmur (with or without thrill) at the lower left sternal border; this murmur is usually audible within the first few days of life (see table Heart[msdmanuals.com] In addition, neonates have a relative polycythemia. The elevated pulmonary resistance usually declines to adult levels by 6-8 weeks.[emedicine.com]

  • Biventricular Hypertrophy

    RESULTS: Biventricular hypertrophy was found in 21% of the study population.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 3 to 4/6 holosystolic murmur (with or without thrill) at the lower left sternal border; this murmur is usually audible within the first few days of life (see table Heart[msdmanuals.com] […] asphyxia, macrosomia, respiratory distress including hyaline membrane disease and transient tachypnea of newborn (TTNB), hypoglycemia, hypocalcemia, hyperbilirubinemia, polycythemia[mjdrdypu.org]

  • Congenital Absence of Ductus Arteriosus

    A large PDA may be associated with signs of biventricular hypertrophy (BVH) and in those with pulmonary hypertension, right ventricular hypertrophy (RVH) may be present.[patient.info] Physical Signs Systolic thrill at the lower and middle left sternal border Loud single S2 Loud systolic ejection murmur at the lower left sternal border With increasing right[rcemlearning.co.uk] […] survivors after repair of TOF, actuarial 10-, 20-, 30-, and 36-year survival rates were 97%, 94%, 89%, and 85%, respectively. [7] In this group, patients without preoperative polycythemia[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Anomalies of Great Veins, Congenital

    It may be normal in a small lesion or show LVH and left atrial enlargement (LAE) or biventricular hypertrophy (BVH) and LAE with very large lesions.[ahcmedia.com] Methemoglobinemia, decreased alveolar hypoventilation secondary to depressed respiratory center or obstruction of the respiratory passages, polycythemia, and hypoglycemia,[hawaii.edu] Usually, the left SVC draining into the left atrium causes mild cyanosis and polycythemia. Patients are minimally symptomatic or asymptomatic.[radiologykey.com]
