14 Possible Causes for Cardiomyopathy, Increased Area of Cardiac Dullness, Non Specific ST-T Changes

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Those affected are at an increased risk of sudden cardiac death.Types of cardiomyopathy include hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, dilated cardiomyopathy, restrictive cardiomyopathy[] Clinically, there are basically three types of cardiomyopathies: Restrictive, Dilated, and Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.[] Other Types of Cardiomyopathy: Dilated Cardiomyopathy Restrictive Cardiomyopathy Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia Also in this section: What is Cardiomyopathy in[]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    WHAT IS DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY?[] Electrocardiogram revealed sinus tachycardia and non-specific ST-T changes in the lateral leads.[] Dilated cardiomyopathy is characterized by increased ventricular size and impaired ventricular function. It is the most common form of non-ischemic cardiomyopathy.[]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    […] with ischemic cardiomyopathy.[] Abstract Previous research has focused on revealing the functions of each individual gene and/or pathway in idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) or ischemic cardiomyopathy[] While surgical ventricular remodeling has a place in the treatment of ischemic cardiomyopathy, it is not well accepted in the case of non-ischemic cardiomyopathy (Batista[]

  • Primary Cardiomyopathy

    Abstract Eleven patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy and eight patients with idiopathic congestive cardiomyopathy underwent extensive neuromuscular studies[] This review describes recent data showing the genetic heterogeneity and overlap with other cardiomyopathies.[] cardiomyopathy [ kahr″de-o-mi-op ah-the ] a general diagnostic term designating primary myocardial disease. alcoholic cardiomyopathy a congestive cardiomyopathy resulting[]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    […] heart muscle disease Dilated cardiomyopathy secondary to alcohol (disorder) Dilated cardiomyopathy secondary to alcohol Alcoholic cardiomyopathy Statements Identifiers Sitelinks[] Alcoholic cardiomyopathy is a type of dilated cardiomyopathy.[] Alcoholic cardiomyopathy (ACM), a form of dilated cardiomyopathy, develops in individuals with chronic and heavy alcohol consumption.[]

  • Peripartum Cardiomyopathy

    Peripartum cardiomyopathy is a cardiomyopathy of unknown cause that occurs in pregnant females, most commonly in the early postpartum period.[] Date: 2005/10/01 Checking for direct PDF access through Ovid Abstract To provide a review of the cardiac and obstetrical literature regarding the development of peripartum cardiomyopathy[] , cardiomyopathy, and pregnancy.[]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    Infantile-onset hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCMP) should be considered a largely genetic condition, although its onset is most often triggered by infection.[] 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.[] The globus nature of the heart on the CXR should also make you think of pericardial effusion vs a dilated cardiomyopathy.[]

  • Suppurative Pericarditis

    […] or fibrocalcific scar that limits diastolic expansion and seriously restricts cardiac output, resembling restrictive cardiomyopathy.[] Patients with large pericardial effusions have an area of increased dullness at the base of the heart in addition to generalized enlargement of the area of cardiac dullness[] ST-T changes in association with pericardial effusion Renal failure associated with severe kidney infection Autoimmune disease Medication When You Suffer Pericarditis During[]

  • Malignant Pericardial Effusion

    Narimatsu Hisamichi Baba Koji Hashizume Hiroshi Yamaguchi Katsuo Nishi Tsuneo Ariyoshi Abstract A 56-year-old man admitted to our hospital for cardiac tamponade due to dilated cardiomyopathy[] Pulmonary artery systolic pressures are usually normal in pericardial constriction; higher pulmonary pressures suggest a restrictive cardiomyopathy.[] […] for more common heart illnesses, including: Heart failure Coronary heart disease Tuberculosis pericarditis Constrictive pericarditis Cardiac tamponade Intra-atrial myxoma Cardiomyopathy[]

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    Her clinical course was further complicated by recurrent tamponade, atrial fibrillation, stress induced cardiomyopathy, heparin induced thrombocytopenia and cardiogenic pulmonary[] EKG 1,4 low voltage QRS, tachycardia, electrical alternans, PR depression, non-specific ST-T wave changes CXR 1,4 increased cardiac silhouette as compared to previous (most[] A pulsus paradoxus can be observed in patients with other conditions, such as constrictive pericarditis, asthma, severe obstructive pulmonary disease, restrictive cardiomyopathy[]
