408 Possible Causes for Cardiac Signs and Symptoms, Cor Pulmonale

  • Recurrent Pulmonary Embolism

    The most common signs of PE are Less commonly, patients have hypotension.[] Greater attention is presently being directed toward the frequent occurrence of chronic embolization and its sequelae, chronic hypertension and cor pulmonale. 1 2 3 4 5 6[] We present the case of a woman with KTWS, cor pulmonale, and death due to recurrent pulmonary embolism (PE).[]

  • Pulmonary Fibrosis

    […] of infection a pulmonary function test to measure your lung capacity an echocardiogram or cardiac stress test to see if a heart problem is causing your symptoms No cure is[] Cor pulmonale develops in association with end-stage disease and classic signs of right heart failure may be present.[] In severe disease, there may be cyanosis eventually leading to respiratory failure, pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale.[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    Patients present with signs and symptoms of right ventricular dysfunction and low cardiac output including dyspnea, chest pain and peripheral edema.[] […] lung diseases. [7] Cor Pulmonale Presentation The clinical manifestations of cor pulmonale may be nonspecific.[] Abnormality of cardiac structure and/or function resulting in clinical symptoms (e.g., dyspnea, fatigue) and signs (e.g., edema, rales), hospitalizations, poor quality of[]

  • Pulmonary Hypertension

    Right ventricular failure limits cardiac output during exertion. Symptoms and Signs Progressive exertional dyspnea and easy fatigability occur in almost all patients.[] cor pulmonale I26.90 Septic pulmonary embolism without acute cor pulmonale I26.92 Saddle embolus of pulmonary artery without acute cor pulmonale I26.99 Other pulmonary embolism[] A doctor's evaluation Chest x-ray, echocardiography, and electrocardiography Cardiac catheterization Based on the symptoms, doctors may suspect pulmonary hypertension, particularly[]

  • Atrial Septal Defect

    […] disease, but its yield in patients without cardiac signs or symptoms is less than 10%.[] Unlike many other heart defects, a PFO in isolation (occurring by itself without other defects) usually causes no signs or symptoms and doesn’t need treatment.[] An X-ray may identify conditions other than a heart defect that may explain your signs or symptoms. Electrocardiogram (ECG).[]

  • Eisenmenger Syndrome

    Typical clinical signs and symptoms of adults with ES are dyspnea on exertion, fatigue, syncope due to low systemic cardiac output, neurologic abnormalities (e.g. headache[] […] thrombocytopenia, and immune dysfunction Prognosis age of onset depends on type and severity of defect can present as early as childhood death can result from decompensated cor[] pulmonale Presentation Symptoms shortness of breath syncope chest pain hemoptysis exercise intolerance Physical exam edema cyanosis of lips, oral mucosa, or extremities cardiac[]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Symptoms1 Failure of the Right Ventricle results in systemic venous hypertension, and can lead to the following signs/symptoms: Peripheral edema Anorexia, nausea, and abdominal[] Chronic cor pulmonale develops gradually.[] Clinically, the signs and symptoms of diastolic and systolic heart failure are practically identical, even though jugular venous distention and an S3 heart sound may be more[]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Syncope and altered mental status, which suggest a compromised cardiac output, are additional signs of a pulmonary embolism [1].[] pulmonale in contrast to the well known cor pulmonale of chronic nature associated with progressive enlargement of the right side of the heart secondary to certain pulmonary[] Patients with DVT are at risk of PE, a life-threatening event Diagnosis Signs and symptoms PE is a potentially life-threatening condition, and in severe cases the occurrence[]

  • Acute Cor Pulmonale

    In most of the reported cases, a clinical picture of subacute cor pulmonale developed.[] Thus, the overall sensitivity of TEE for the detection of pulmonary embolism with acute cor pulmonale was only 58%.[] Acute cor pulmonale is a clinical syndrome with signs of right-sided heart failure resulting from sudden increase of pulmonary vascular resistance.[]

  • Silicosis

    Eventually, cor pulmonale and respiratory failure develop.[]
