55 Possible Causes for Cardiac Catheterization Abnormal, Prominent A-Wave, Pulmonary Systolic Murmur

  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus

    Course and Complications  Ejection systolic murmur at birth (due to pulmonary hypertension)  continuous murmur after a few weeks  Development of Pulmonary arterial hypertension[] Cardiac catheterization showed bidirectional shunting via the PDA. Familial clustering of Eisenmenger PDA and congenital deafness is rare.[] Risks and complications of surgery or cardiac catheterization Risks and possible complications include: Reaction to contrast dye (only with cardiac catheterization) Reaction[]

  • Pulmonary Valve Stenosis

    ECG of pulmonary valve stenosis Electrical axis deviation to right or right ventricular hypertrophy, prominent P wave.[] Sixteen patients were asymptomatic with pulmonary systolic murmurs, although 6 patients presented with dyspnea.[] abnormalities.[]

  • Large Ventricular Septal Defect

    […] vascular resistance decreases left to right shunt and converts systolic murmur in the one-sided murmur.[] Cardiac catheterization, which involves a thin, long tube that is inserted into a blood vessel at the groin and guided via an artery or vein into the heart.[] , loudest at the fourth intercostal space, usually with a thrill, and a loud and widely split pulmonic component of S2 With fixed pulmonary hypertension, diastolic murmur[]

  • Ostium Primum Atrial Septal Defect

    If MR is present, the findings of ASD may be modified Prominent v wave in JVP LV type apex IE may occur (unlike secundum ASD) ECG Incomplete RBBB pattern in v1 as in secundum[] MurmursPulmonary ejection systolic murmur – Increased pulmonary flow • Tricuspid murmur – is heard over left sternal edge louder on inspiration • Graham-Steell murmur[] If the ASD is large, it can be closed with open-heart surgery, or by cardiac catheterization using a device inserted into the opening to plug it.[]

  • Eisenmenger Syndrome

    ECG of Eisenmenger syndrome Usually there is right ventricular hypertrophy with prominent P waves.[] catheterization; • Electrocardiogram; and • Echocardiogram.[] Ejection systolic murmur audible along the left sternal border.[]

  • Pulmonary Valve Disease

    The jugular pulse may have a prominent "A" wave. If the pulmonary regurgitation component is severe, the heart may be enlarged, pulsatile and painful.[] Signs Soft pulmonary systolic murmurs are more easily heard with the patient lying down.[] When pulmonary valve disease is being considered for repair, especially in an adult, cardiac catheterization is usually performed.[]

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    Physical Examination Findings on cardiovascular examination in patients with tricuspid regurgitation include the following: S 3 gallop Jugular venous distention with a prominent[] In the absence of pulmonary hypertension, the murmur is usually low-intensity and early systolic.[] Tests used to diagnose valve disease may include: Electrocardiography (ECG) Chest X-ray Echocardiography Transesophageal echocardiography Cardiac Catheterization (cardiac[]

  • Tricuspid Stenosis

    Patients often display a prominent A Wave as atrial systole against the stenotic tricuspid valve results in an exaggerated increase in right atrial pressure and thus bulging[] In the absence of pulmonary hypertension, the murmur is usually low-intensity and early systolic.[] Cardiac catheterization may be used to aid in the planning of the optimal surgical procedure, as it can diagnose many aspects of cardiac pathology.[]

  • Ventricular Septal Defect

    In addition to a pansystolic murmur, there may also be a mid/end diastolic murmur mimicking mitral stenosis as well as an ejection systolic murmur mimicking aortic stenosis[] catheterization : a thin tube (catheter) is inserted into the heart through a large vein in the leg Cardiac MRI : a three-dimensional image that shows the heart's abnormalities[] Although heart sounds are normal, a systolic click and a grade iii/iv systolic murmur in the pulmonary area is heard.[]

  • Pulmonary Atresia

    With progressive right ventricular failure, hepatomegaly and prominent “a” wave of jugular venous pulse may be observed.[] Auscultatory finding: harsh systolic murmur that is best heard over Erb's point and left upper sternal border ; single second heart sound Diagnostics Pulse oximetry : SpO2[] Multidetector CT demonstrated all of these abnormalities and is the investigation of choice instead of cardiac catheterization.[]
