26 Possible Causes for Cardiomegaly on Chest X-ray, Sclerotic Aortic Valve

  • 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] (valve) (see also Endocarditis, aortic) 424.1 arteriosclerotic or sclerotic (minimal) (senile) - see Arteriosclerosis, coronary artery, arterial - see Arteriosclerosis, coronary[icd9data.com] After 2 months of CHM treatment, the follow-up chest X-ray showed great improvements in pulmonary edema and cardiomegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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[jama.ama-assn.org] (valve) (see also Endocarditis, aortic) 424.1 arteriosclerotic or sclerotic (minimal) (senile) - see Arteriosclerosis, coronary artery, arterial - see Arteriosclerosis, coronary[icd9data.com] Chest X-rays are frequently used to aid in the diagnosis of CHF.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    In fact, the aortic valves of nearly a third of all individuals older than 65 display some sclerotic pathology although much fewer display clinical signs of aortic stenosis[pathwaymedicine.org] Once again, such malformation likely expose the aortic valves to additional hemodynamic stresses which accelerate progression of sclerotic and calcific pathology.[pathwaymedicine.org] In individuals with anatomically normal aortic valves, such changes may take years to result in sclerotic and calcific pathology and thus disease manifests late in life, if[pathwaymedicine.org]

  • Heart Valve Disease

    A particularly important group is the large number of asymptomatic elderly patients, many with systemic hypertension, who have midsystolic murmurs related to sclerotic aortic[ahajournals.org] valve leaflets, flow into tortuous, noncompliant great vessels, or a combination of these.[ahajournals.org]

  • 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.[radcliffecardiology.com] (valve) (see also Endocarditis, aortic) 424.1 arteriosclerotic or sclerotic (minimal) (senile) - see Arteriosclerosis, coronary artery, arterial - see Arteriosclerosis, coronary[icd9data.com] Chest X ray revealed global cardiomegaly and wide carina angle. ECG showed LAE and sinus tachycardia. Coronary angiogram demonstrated normal coronary arteries.[apjmt.mums.ac.ir]

  • Rheumatic Heart Disease

    Cardiomegaly or ventricular dysfunction must be present and demonstrated by appropriate medically acceptable imaging, such as chest x-ray, echocardiography (M-Mode, 2-dimensional[ssa.gov] (valve) (see also Endocarditis, aortic) 424.1 arteriosclerotic or sclerotic (minimal) (senile) - see Arteriosclerosis, coronary artery, arterial - see Arteriosclerosis, coronary[icd9data.com] Chest x-rays are not routinely done but can detect cardiomegaly, a common manifestation of carditis in ARF.[merckmanuals.com]
