284 Possible Causes for Cardiac Catheterization Abnormal, Systolic Thrill at Lower Left Sternal Border

  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus

    Cardiac catheterization showed bidirectional shunting via the PDA. Familial clustering of Eisenmenger PDA and congenital deafness is rare.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Risks and complications of surgery or cardiac catheterization Risks and possible complications include: Reaction to contrast dye (only with cardiac catheterization) Reaction[saintlukeskc.org] Cardiac catheterization can provide details of the abnormality and also can be used to treat some heart defects.[merck.com]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    These are the primary measures for assessing disease severity, and they have been well validated compared with measurement obtained with cardiac catheterization. 20 Echocardiography[aafp.org] […] also provides useful information about LV function, left ventricular filling pressure, and coexisting abnormalities of other valves.[aafp.org]

  • Ventricular Septal Defect

    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] 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[chop.edu] Muscular defects can be heard along the lower left sternal border and may vary in intensity as the defect size changes with muscular contraction throughout systole.[circ.ahajournals.org]

  • Tetralogy of Fallot

    Systolic thrill at the lower left sternal border. Aortic ejection click.[patient.info] MRI : a three-dimensional image that shows the heart's abnormalities Cardiac catheterization : a thin tube (catheter) is inserted into the heart through a large vein in the[chop.edu] Cardiac catheterization involves a thin, long tube that is inserted into a blood vessel and guided into an artery or vein in the heart.[childrens.memorialhermann.org]

  • Large Ventricular Septal Defect

    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] 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.[childrens.memorialhermann.org] Small VSDs typically produce murmurs ranging from a grade 1 to 2/6 high-pitched, short systolic murmur (due to tiny defects that actually close during late systole) to a grade[merckmanuals.com]

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    In severe TR, a right jugular venous thrill may be palpable, as may systolic hepatic pulsation and an RV impulse at the left lower sternal border.[merckmanuals.com] Tests used to diagnose valve disease may include: Electrocardiography (ECG) Chest X-ray Echocardiography Transesophageal echocardiography Cardiac Catheterization (cardiac[my.clevelandclinic.org] Other signs your doctor may find are an irregular pulse and a fluttering or abnormal pulsation in your neck (jugular vein).[my.clevelandclinic.org]

  • Coronary Artery Disease

    Coronary Angiography and Cardiac Catheterization Your doctor may recommend coronary angiography (an-jee-OG-rah-fee) if other tests or factors show that you're likely to have[web.archive.org] Cardiac catheterization.[marshfieldclinic.org] Abnormal levels might be a sign that you're at risk for CHD.[web.archive.org]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    Further testing may also be needed, including genetic testing, cardiac MRI, exercise stress testing, monitoring for abnormal heart rhythms and cardiac catheterization.[ucsfhealth.org] Invasive cardiac catheterization or electrophysiological studies are now rarely necessary.[ahajournals.org] The ECG usually shows a wide variety of abnormalities but is of limited value in HCM, with the exception of family screening.[ahajournals.org]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    All patients with TC underwent cardiac catheterization or coronary computed tomography angiography during hospitalization.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] vascular distribution; (2) the absence of significant ( 50%) obstructive coronary artery disease or angiographic evidence of acute plaque rupture; (3) new electrocardiographic abnormalities[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aortic Valve Disorder

    If the stress test is abnormal or if the person develops symptoms, cardiac catheterization is necessary to determine whether the person also has coronary artery disease.[merckmanuals.com]
