47 Possible Causes for Cardiac Signs and Symptoms, Mediastinal Shift

  • Scimitar Syndrome

    Anomalous venous drainage confirmed by cardiac catheterization. Failure to thrive, cyanosis, tachycardia, signs and symptoms of right ventricular failure.[] Chest radiography showed volume loss of the right lung with mediastinal shift to the right and opacification of the right hemithorax.[] In patients with isolated multiple pulmonary vein involvement, signs and symptoms are dependent upon the degree of left-to-right shunting.[]

  • Dextrocardia

    Ann Thorac Surg. 2012 Oct;94(4):e103-4. doi: 10.1016/j.athoracsur.2012.03.106. Author information 1 Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, Dongsan Medical Center, University of Keimyung College of medicine, Daegu, Korea.

  • Tension Pneumothorax

    For this reason, it is important to know the signs of tension pneumothorax and be prepared to decompress the chest if necessary.[] He was clinically stable without hypoxia or hypotension, and the initial chest x-ray study showed a large pneumothorax without mediastinal shift.[] […] is a late sign.[]

  • Ventricular Bigeminy

    Examination Cardiovascular system including blood pressure, heart murmurs and any signs of cardiac failure.[] Her CT scan head showed multiple contusions, ECG revealed normal sinus rhythm, chest X-ray showed bowel loops shadow in left hemithorax with mediastinal shift to the right[] If symptoms have a long duration (many hours), advise the patient to attend their GP surgery or A&E for a 12-lead ECG during the next episode.[]

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    Cardiac tamponade shares symptoms and signs such as dyspnea, edema, and low urine output with other, more-common diseases.[] An electrocardiogram revealed sinus tachycardia and low voltages, and chest radiography demonstrated the presence of severe right PE and contralateral mediastinal shift (Figure[] These patients often develop frequent ascites and present with clinical signs and symptoms similar to cardiac tamponade (tachycardia, hypotension and dyspnea).[]

  • Pulmonary Arteriovenous Malformation

    The following contrast-enhanced computed tomographic scan of the chest showed a large amount of fluid in the right thorax with mediastinal shift, but without major vessel[]

  • Myocardial Contusion

    What is scary is that life-ending cardiac arrhythmias and cardiac failure can occur in people that do show any signs/symptoms of a cardiac contusion.[] Loss of the aortic knob contour, shift of the esophagus (nasogastric tube) to the right and an apical cap in addition to mediastinal widening indicate need for further workup[] Symptoms of Cardiac Contusion Because it is impossible to actually see the myocardium at the time of an injury, the doctor must rely on the signs and symptoms in order to[]

  • Acute Atrial Infarction

    A rightward mediastinal shift in left pneumothorax can contribute to the apparent loss of left precordial R waves.[]

  • Giant Left Atrium

    Chest roentgenograms revealed near complete opacification of the right mid to lower lung zones, with a shift of the mediastinal structures and heart leftwards.[] […] was suspected and ultrasonography (USG) was advised, which was suggestive of a large cystic lesion in the epigastric region with compression of the inferior vena cava and shifting[]

  • Congenital Emphysema

    signs of respiratory compromise.[] The ipsilateral rib spaces may be widened, the ipsilateral hemidiaphragm may be depressed, and there may be contralateral mediastinal shift.[] Diagnosing CLE may be challenge due to non-specific signs and symptoms, including dyspnea, cyanosis, tachycardia, wheezing, recurrent infections and failure to thrive.[]
