26 Possible Causes for Cardiomegaly on Chest X-ray, Increased Area of Cardiac Dullness

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Chest X-ray revealed cardiomegaly, and echocardiogram showed dilated left ventricular (LV) cavity and diffuse hypokinesis with extremely decreased ejection fraction (EF).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After 2 months of CHM treatment, the follow-up chest X-ray showed great improvements in pulmonary edema and cardiomegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Testing may include a chest x-ray to look for cardiomegaly (an enlarged heart), pulmonary edema (fluid in the lungs), or pleural effusion (collection of fluid around the lungs[dx.doi.org]

  • Cardiomyopathy

Electrocardiography (ECG) registered sinus tachycardia.[scielo.mec.pt] […] block (unfavorable prognosis) Laboratory Echocardiography Left atrial and ventricular dilation Reduced left ventricular ejection fraction ( LVEF ) Wall motion abnormalities Chest[amboss.com]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    We suggest that any patient who develops chest pain, tachycardia, cardiomegaly on chest X-ray or has signs of hypoxemia should be evaluated for PEF through echocardiography[nature.com] 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] ECG strip showing declining and rising QRS amplitude in a patient with pericardial effusion Chest X-ray: Chest X ray can show cardiomegaly if sufficient fluid is present.[iame.com]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

This just means enlarged heart.[khanacademy.org]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    Chest X-ray Chest X-ray is useful in detecting cardiomegaly and pulmonary congestion as part of the initial diagnosis of CHF; however, it should be evaluated in consonance[symptoma.com]

  • Cor Triloculare Biventriculare

    Chest x-ray: Chest x-ray findings are similar to large ASD: with cardiomegaly, enlarged central pulmonary arteries & pulmonary plethora.[cardiologyforyou.blogspot.com] He had chest X-ray which showed cardiomegaly with increased pulmonary plethora [Figure 2] ; the full blood count showed evidence of microcytic hypochromic red blood cells-red[heartindia.net]

  • Cardiomegaly

  • Large Ventricular Septal Defect

    If the VSD is large, chest x-ray shows cardiomegaly and increased pulmonary vascular markings.[merckmanuals.com] X-Ray chest PA View of a chid with VSD, left to right shunt and hyperdynamic pulmonary hypertension.[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu] X-rays may be normal in small defects; in large VSDs, they may show cardiomegaly, left atrial and left ventricular enlargement, and prominent pulmonary vascular markings.[quizlet.com]

  • Endocardial Cushion Defect
