11 Possible Causes for Cardiomegaly on Chest X-ray, Sacral Edema

  • Hodgkin's Disease

    The endobronchial localization of Hodgkin's disease is a rare entity which is often confused with endobronchial tuberculosis in our setting. We report the case of a 16 years old female who presented with 6 months history of dry cough, hemoptysis, dyspnea, dysphagia and dysphonia. The chest radiography showed a[…][]

  • 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).[] Peripheral edema: Edema develops in the feet in ambulatory patients and sacral edema in bed bound patients.[] After 2 months of CHM treatment, the follow-up chest X-ray showed great improvements in pulmonary edema and cardiomegaly.[]

  • Heart Failure

    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[] Peripheral edemas ( ankle, lower leg, in patients confined to bed also sacral anasarca, pleural effusion, ascites, weight gain) 7.2 Causal diagnostics Coronary artery disease[]

  • High Output Heart Failure

    The chest X-ray showed cardiomegaly and dilatation of the pulmonary artery.[] sacral region in bedridden patients.[] A chest X-ray demonstrated cardiomegaly with no acute abnormality.[]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Chest x-ray did not show additional changes besides those previously known such as cardiomegaly. Electrocardiogram showed atrial fibrillation with a normal heart rate.[] As a result, there will be peripheral edema, swelling in foot and ankle in people who are mostly standing and sacral edema in people who are lying down.[] x-ray Useful diagnostic tool to evaluate a patient with dyspnea and differentiate HF from pulmonary disease Signs of cardiomegaly Assess pulmonary congestion (See X-ray findings[]

  • Right-Sided Heart Failure

    Chest x-ray did not show additional changes besides those previously known such as cardiomegaly. Electrocardiogram showed atrial fibrillation with a normal heart rate.[] sacral region in bedridden patients.[] This increased pressure forces fluid out of the intravascular compartment and into the tissue spaces of the lungs, causing pulmonary edema.[]

  • Libman-Sacks Disease

    Chest x-ray at admission showed mild cardiomegaly and bilateral basilar interstitial lung pattern.[] […] and peripheral edema A focal neurological deficit secondary to embolic phenomena or thrombosis with or without the antiphospholipid syndrome might be noted.[] […] plateau pulse, low-volume pulse, pulsus alternans) Jugular venous distension Displaced apex beat Third and/or fourth heart sounds Pulmonary rales Congestive hepatomegaly Sacral[]

  • Hypovolemic Shock

    Chest x-ray reveals cardiomegaly. During the administration of 20 ml/kg of Ringer's lactate, respirations become labored and rales are heard.[] And because he also has pitting edema in his sacral and thigh areas, you suspect that fluid is escaping from vessels. Initially, you aren't concerned about Mr.[] And he has 3 pitting edema in his sacral and thigh areas. Mr. Astley's skin is cool and dry, he's alert and oriented to place and self but not time, and he's restless.[]

  • Thiamine Deficiency

    The first consultation was at age 24 for chest pain, X rays showed cardiomegaly that was mistakenly not considered.[] The first patient had generalized edema on inspection (pedal, sacral as well as facial edema), and evidence of pericardial effusion with increased left and right ventricular[]

  • Acute Hemorrhagic Leukoencephalitis

    Her lungs were clear and of normal size, as shown on contrast chest X-ray. The chest X-ray also showed cardiomegaly.[] Physical examinations showed severe mucosal and conjunctival pallor, periorbital and sacral edemas, and abdominal distension.[] A CT scan of our patient's chest showed multiple lymph adenopathies in the paratracheal and subcarinal regions.[]
