134 Possible Causes for Cardiogenic Syncope

  • Myocardial Infarction

    History The patient’s history is critical in diagnosing myocardial infarction (MI) and sometimes may provide the only clues that lead to the diagnosis in the initial phases of the patient presentation. Patients with typical acute MI usually present with chest pain and may have prodromal symptoms of fatigue, chest[…][]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a rare but fatal complication of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with an associated mortality that ranges from 41% to 80%. The treatment consists of supplemental oxygenation, afterload reduction, intraaortic balloon pump, and surgical repair. In selected patients, extracorporeal[…][]

  • Atrial Fibrillation

    BACKGROUND: Novel predictors of atrial fibrillation (AF) in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) are desirable. AIM: To detect new multimodality imaging variables predictive of de novo AF in HCM. METHODS: Consecutive patients with HCM underwent clinical assessment and 48-hour Holter electrocardiography to detect AF[…][]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a genetic disorder characterized by left ventricular hypertrophy without an identifiable cause. Most patients have little or no disability and a normal life expectancy. Higher rates of morbidity or mortality are linked to the complications of the disorder, sudden cardiac death,[…][]

  • Cardiogenic Syncope

    Cardiogenic syncope may arise in a wide variety of heart conditions and may predict an ulterior catastrophic event in some cases.[] cardiogenic versus non-cardiogenic syncope.[] After reviewing the ECG during the video-EEG recording, cardiogenic syncope, resulting from a cardiac arrhythmia, was identified as the cause of the seizures.[]

  • Bradyarrhythmia

    Symptoms include syncopal attacks (Morgagni-Adams-Stokes attacks).[] cardiogenic shock ( R57.0 ) carotid sinus syncope ( G90.01 ) heat syncope ( T67.1 ) neurocirculatory asthenia ( F45.8 ) neurogenic orthostatic hypotension ( G90.3 ) orthostatic[] A cardiogenic shock might occur requiring immediate emergency treatment: reanimation and administration of atropin or catecholamines.[]

  • Sick Sinus Syndrome

    This occurs in 50% of people and this is a form of neuro-cardiogenic syncope. [1] [3] [5] fatigue and Weakness [1] Due to inadequate blood supply from the heart to meet the[] What is the overlap between sinus node dysfunction and neuro cardiogenic syncope ? SND can occur as an overlapping syndrome with neurocardiogenic syncope.[]

  • Ventricular Tachycardia

    Cardiogenic syncope is rare but it is lethal, and needs to be promptly diagnosed and treated.[] In pediatric patients, syncope commonly occurs as vasovagal syncope, or in epilepsy or orthostatic dysregulation.[]

  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus

    Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is a heart condition caused by the persistence of the ductus arteriosus. Patent ductus arteriosus with small caliber may present with minimal signs or no signs at all. However, large caliber PDA may present with the following system wise symptomatology: General appearance: Patients[…][]

  • Aortic Stenosis with Bicuspid Valve

    OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate aortic media changes in bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) patients who underwent aortic valve replacement (AVR) and simultaneous replacement of the proximal aorta for BAV stenosis vs BAV insufficiency. METHODS: Review of our institutional BAV database identified a[…][]
