26 Possible Causes for Cardiomegaly on Chest X-ray, Incomplete Right Bundle Branch Block, Palpitations with Skipped Beats

  • Cardiomyopathy

    x-ray Cardiomegaly left-sided hypertrophy with a balloon appearance Signs of heart failure decompensation: pulmonary edema Endomyocardial biopsy (see pathology) Pathology[] Palpitations are feelings that your heart is skipping a beat, fluttering or beating too hard or too fast. ARVD usually affects teens or young adults.[] Chest x-ray showed moderate cardiomegaly and bibasilar interstitial infiltrate. Electrocardiography (ECG) registered sinus tachycardia.[]

  • Acute Myocarditis

    Abstract A 5-month-old boy was admitted to hospital presenting with cardiogenic shock. The echocardiographic examinations revealed a severe ventricular dysfunction. Despite the aggressive medical therapy, his hemodynamic status progressively deteriorated. Mechanical circulatory support was initially provided with[…][]

  • Rheumatic Heart Disease

    Sydenham's chorea is the most common type of acquired chorea in childhood which is a major neurological manifestation of rheumatic fever. We describe a 13 years old girl who presented with weakness and purposeless involuntary movements of upper and lower limbs. The symptoms slightly affected the child's daily[…][]

  • Straight Back Syndrome

    Her chest X-rays appear below: 2. What are the abnormalities seen in these chest x-rays?[] The electrocardiogram showed incomplete right bundle branch block and a vertical QRS axis.[] right bundle branch block (2) vertical QRS axis The murmur may be a benign flow murmur or it may be due to an underlying valve disorder.[]

  • Recurrent Pulmonary Embolism

    Focal oligemia, cardiomegaly and plump pulmonary arteries on chest X-ray films, right axis deviation, clockwise rotation, ST-segment depression and T-wave inversion on electrocardiograms[] Review of EKGs showed a trend of increasing right axis deviation with recovery and recurrences during the previous 9 years and a current incomplete right bundle branch block[] […] interval 0.24 sec), an incomplete right bundle branch block and non-specific ST-segment abnormalities: 1 mm ST elevations in DI, DII and aVL. ( Fig. 1 ) The chest radiography[]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    […] on chest X-ray ( Figure 1 B).[] Symptoms: Possible symptoms include palpitations (heart racing or "skipping" heart beats), low energy levels, and low exercise tolerance.[] Chest x-ray shows cardiomegaly, usually of all chambers.[]

  • Peripartum Cardiomyopathy

    The physical examination and x-ray chest may reveal cardiomegaly and pulmonary edema.[] Patients with heart failure caused by PPCM may also complain of palpitations or skipped beats, racing heart, lightheadedness, or almost fainting.[] Missed heart beat Skipped heart beat [ more ] 0001962 Pedal edema Fluid accumulation in lower limbs Lower leg swelling [ more ] 0010741 Reduced ejection fraction 0012664[]

  • Secondary Cardiomyopathy

    If there is an electrical rhythm disturbance associated with the cardiomyopathy, abnormal heartbeats may cause palpitations and the sensation of an occasional skipped heart[] A previous ECG (two years ago) showed incomplete right bundle branch block morphology but no other abnormality.[] beat or lethal heart rhythms, such as ventricular fibrillation.[]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    Blood tests will show signs of liver injury and confirm alcohol abuse, while chest X-ray shows pulmonary congestion, cardiomegaly and pleural effusions.[] If there is an electrical rhythm disturbance associated with the cardiomyopathy, abnormal heartbeats may cause palpitations and the sensation of an occasional skipped heart[] Chest X ray revealed global cardiomegaly and wide carina angle. ECG showed LAE and sinus tachycardia. Coronary angiogram demonstrated normal coronary arteries.[]

  • Chagas Disease

    In 1928, Chagas detected fibrosis of the conductive system, and pointed out the presence of marked cardiomegaly at the chest X-Ray associated with minimal symptomatology.[] She presented with impaired cardiac function during the acute phase (pericarditis and incomplete right bundle-branch block) that resolved favorably after benznidazole therapy[] Others, such as moderate bradycardia and incomplete right bundle branch block, are normal variants in healthy young people [28] Le VV, Wheeler MT, Mandic S, et al.[]
