73 Possible Causes for Cardiac Tamponade, Wide Pulse Pressure

  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus

    In group A; all cases were closed successfully except 4 cases: device embolization in 2, cardiac tamponade and iatrogenic aortic coarctation were seen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Peripheral pulses are bounding as the run-off into the pulmonary circulation drops the diastolic pressure and causes a wide pulse pressure.[patient.info] Examination  Physical underdevelopment  Wide pulse pressure – bounding peripheral pulses  Hyperkinetic apex, continuous thrill in 2nd lt ICS  Continous murmur 5.  Accentuated[slideshare.net]

  • Interventricular Septum Aneurysm

    It occurs as an outpouching that progresses like a windsock, and it may rupture producing aortic regurgitation, cardiac tamponade, congestive heart failure, conduction abnormalities[ecommons.aku.edu] Examination revealed a wide pulse pressure and a continuous murmur across the precordium.[heartviews.org] Main symptoms and complications are highlighted: Rupture of the heart in place of the aneurysm and cardiac tamponade.[hmcisrael.com]

  • Aneurysm of Sinus of Valsalva

    During the next 12 h, the aneurysm enlarged to involve the entire interventricular septum, and the patient developed features of cardiac tamponade.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] a wide pulse pressure.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Complications rupture most commonly into right ventricle may lead to cardiac tamponade /- intracardiac shunting ventricular outflow tract obstruction aortic regurgitation[radiopaedia.org]

  • Aortic Dissection

    We report sudden death in a patient diagnosed with AAAD and in whom critical care ultrasound highly indicated hemorrhagic cardiac tamponade.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Wide pulse pressure may be absent. After a period of pain, cardiac failure may result from gross aortic regurgitation.[patient.info] BP Pearl: Patients with dissection who have a wide pulse pressure should be considered pre-terminal, and usually require immediate surgery.[emergencymedicinecases.com]

  • Ruptured Sinus of Valsalva

    tamponade Sudden death Prognosis Poor with rupture unless urgent surgical repair Most unruptured SVAs progressively dilate and eventually rupture Sinus of Valsalva Aneurysm[learningradiology.com] Examination revealed a wide pulse pressure and a continuous murmur across the precordium.[academic.oup.com] Cardiac tamponade may occur if the rupture involves the pericardial space.[cathlabdigest.com]

  • Acute Aortic Regurgitation

    […] aortic rupture aortic regurgitation acute myocardial infarction cardiac tamponade end-organ ischaemia (brain, limbs, spine, renal, gut, liver) death INVESTIGATIONS Bedside[lifeinthefastlane.com] The traditional physical signs of a wide pulse pressure were absent.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Widened pulse pressure (often 100 mm Hg) with a low diastolic pressure; there are numerous eponyms for the characteristic signs related to a wide pulse pressure.[unboundmedicine.com]

  • Hypovolemia

    These include cardiac tamponade (muffled heart tones, distended neck veins), tension pneumothorax (deviated trachea, unilaterally decreased breath sounds), and spinal cord[emedicine.medscape.com] A wide pulse pressure is considered to be greater than 50 percent of the systolic blood pressure.[ems1.com] Trauma-related cardiac tamponade requires surgical decompression and repair.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Ruptured Sinus of Valsalva Aneurysm

    Cardiac tamponade may occur if the rupture involves the pericardial space.[cathlabdigest.com] Examination revealed a wide pulse pressure and a continuous murmur across the precordium.[academic.oup.com] Complications rupture most commonly into right ventricle may lead to cardiac tamponade /- intracardiac shunting ventricular outflow tract obstruction aortic regurgitation[radiopaedia.org]

  • Pulsus Alternans

    Common Causes The most common cause of pulsus alternans is Left ventricular failure , other causes include: Asthma Cardiac tamponade Meadows syndrome Premature ventricular[wikidoc.org] […] leading to a wide pulse pressure.[medcaretips.com] tamponade and caused by a decreased pulmonary venous return. pulsus parvus et tardus a small hard pulse that rises and falls slowly. pulsus tardus an abnormally slow pulse[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Acyanotic Congenital Heart Disease

    CARDIAC TAMPONADE mitral stenosis MS, is almost always due to what rheumatic fever clinical presentation & examination of MS malar flush, fatigue, dyspnoea AF, tapping apex[cram.com] pulse pressure Small – moderate PDA: Normal or LVH Large PDA: BVH May have cardiomegaly and increased PVMs, depending on size of shunt (see Chapter 18 , Section IX.A , for[unboundmedicine.com] (wide pulse pressure)?[quizlet.com]
