1,695 Possible Causes for Cardiomegaly on Chest X-ray, Narrow Hands, Retinal Arteriovenous Nipping

  • Coronary Atherosclerosis

    Peripheral artery disease where narrowing of the arteries affects the legs, feet, arms, and hands—typically predicts CAD.[] The images show the diameter of the coronary arteries and any blockages narrowing them. Coronary angiography is an invasive test.[] In experienced hands, the risk of complications is less than 1%; however, it is the only test that helps a cardiologist to determine precisely whether to treat you with bypass[]

  • Hypertensive Heart Disease

    Endocrine. 2012 Aug;42(1):9-17. doi: 10.1007/s12020-012-9649-4. Epub 2012 Mar 15. Abstract Hypertensive heart disease, here defined by the presence of pathologic left ventricular hypertrophy in the absence of a cause other than arterial hypertension, is characterized by complex changes in myocardial structure[…][]

  • Hypertension

    In arterioles, on the other hand, decreases in the density of blood vessels (rarefaction) and in vasomotion amplitude may play a more important role than reductions in lumen[] […] or was even decreased in hypertensive rats, exaggerated transmural pressures resulted in the isolated blood vessels as a consequence of the law of Laplace because of the narrowed[]

  • Malignant Hypertension

    Chest x-ray showed cardiomegaly. A non-contrast computed tomography scan of the brain did not show any sign of stroke (haemorrhage).[]

  • Arteriosclerosis

    If they show white spots, it could indicate that your leg arteries are narrowed down and not enough blood can reach your feet.[] Fist Test: 1) Lift both hands above your head 2) Make fists with firm pressure. 3) Open and close fists 10 times. 4) Ask someone to h old your wrists firmly. 5) Open and close[]

  • Cardiomegaly on Chest X-ray

    Presentation on theme: "No history of arthritis Significant cardiomegaly on chest x-ray"— Presentation transcript: 1 No history of arthritis Significant cardiomegaly on chest[] On the other hand, those with no tricuspid regurgitation will have small right ventricles and no changes on CXR may be noted.[] Pectus excavatum Cardiomegaly is often detected on postero-anterior projection of chest x-ray.[]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    As the narrowing becomes more severe, however, they may develop fatigue, shortness of breath, palpitations (sense of racing heart beat), fainting, or chest pain during sports[] […] aortic valve stenosis become irritable and have poor food intake, sweating while they are eating, difficulty breathing, an unnatural pale or gray color to the skin, cool hands[]

  • Tetralogy of Fallot

    The chest X-rays on the left posteroanterior and lateral views revealed cardiomegaly and a reduction in the pulmonary flow.[] Myhre syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant disorder caused by a narrow spectrum of missense mutations in the SMAD4 gene.[] It's just like taking a water hose and squeezing your hand around it, less water will get out through the hose.[]

  • Lower Extremity Arteriosclerosis

    BACKGROUND: Ketamine in sub-dissociative doses has been shown to have analgesic effects in various pain conditions, including neuropathic and phantom-limb pain, where conventional treatment has often failed. Chronic ischemic pain due to lower extremity arteriosclerosis obliterans often responds poorly to analgesics,[…][]

  • Coarctation of the Aorta

    Coarctation of the aorta refers to a condition where there is a tightness (or narrowing) in the aorta.[] On the other hand, if there is more extensive narrowing, a larger portion of the aorta is opened up or sometimes the aorta is patched, typically with a native blood vessel[] As a result, the left-hand side of the heart has to work harder to pump blood away from the heart to the rest of the body.[]
