30 Possible Causes for Cardiac Tamponade, Chest Pain, Increased Area of Cardiac Dullness

  • Pericardial Effusion

    PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this paper is to review current approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of pericardial effusions and cardiac tamponade.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Considerable amounts of pericardial fluid may muffle heart sounds, increase the area of cardiac dullness, and change the size and shape of the cardiac silhouette.[merckmanuals.com] pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Suppurative Pericarditis

    We report what we believe to be the first case of Austrian's triad further complicated by purulent pericarditis and cardiac tamponade, and review the relevant literature.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients with large pericardial effusions have an area of increased dullness at the base of the heart in addition to generalized enlargement of the area of cardiac dullness[tele.med.ru] […] swelling, chest pain, recurrent fever and breathlessness on mild exertion.[biomedsearch.com]

    We report a case of a pericardial cyst complicated with acute cardiac tamponade in a 3-year-old child with no previous cardiac history who was transferred to our university[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cardiac Tamponade by Hydatid Pericardial Cyst: A Rare Case Report, Anesth Pain Med. 2014 ; 4(1):e9137. doi: 10.5812/aapm.9137.[anesthpain.com]

  • Hemopericardium

    She was diagnosed with pericardial effusion leading to cardiac tamponade.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He had no chest pain until recently when he presented with chest tightness and abdominal pain for 2 days prior to admission. Chest X-ray showed marked cardiomegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a case of acute aortic syndrome in a 64-year-old man who presented with chest pain and hypotension. His electrocardiogram and cardiac troponins were normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pericarditis

    KEYWORDS: Cardiac tamponade; Emergency department ultrasound; Endocarditis; Purulent pericarditis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Considerable amounts of pericardial fluid may muffle heart sounds, increase the area of cardiac dullness, and change the size and shape of the cardiac silhouette.[merckmanuals.com] […] of the pericardium, which surrounds the heart and can lead to chest pain.[belmarrahealth.com]

  • Radiation Pericarditis

    cardiac tamponade.[calshipleymd.com] Patients with large pericardial effusions have an area of increased dullness at the base of the heart in addition to generalized enlargement of the area of cardiac dullness[tele.med.ru] I hope your doctor is able to find a way to resolve your breathing and chest pain issues.
