155 Possible Causes for Cardiomyopathy, Narrow Pulse Pressure

  • Myocardial Infarction

    BACKGROUND Various physical and emotional factors have been previously described as triggers for stress induced cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] pulse pressure ( difference of ) Raised JVP Signs of sympathetic activation Pallor (basically looking pasty .[almostadoctor.co.uk] A 63-year-old man with an ischaemic cardiomyopathy, supported by the HeartWare left ventricular assist device (LVAD), presented with ventricular tachycardia and inferior ST-elevation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    Restrictive cardiomyopathy ( RCM ) is a form of cardiomyopathy in which the walls of the heart are rigid (but not thickened). [2] [3] Thus the heart is restricted from stretching[en.wikipedia.org] Haemodynamic features delineated in the 1940s and '50s included the narrow pulse pressure in the right ventricle with normal systolic pressure and greatly increased diastolic[heart.bmj.com] After the exclusion of various differentials for restrictive cardiomyopathy, a causative relationship between restrictive cardiomyopathy and dermatomyositis was assumed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myxedema

    pulse pressure.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] the effect of alpha-adrenergic receptors, increased catecholamines, and increased systemic vascular resistance, causing some patients to have diastolic hypertension and a narrowed[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Cardiogenic Shock

    It is a rare variant of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy affecting younger patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Narrow pulse pressure. D. Oliguria. 5. Answer: C. Narrow pulse pressure.[nurseslabs.com] Decreased stroke volume causes the pulse pressure to narrow (as is seen in cardiac tamponade).[cathlabdigest.com]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    What is hypertrophic cardiomyopathy?[symptoma.com] Stress cardiomyopathy is an acquired cardiomyopathy of unknown aetiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The report illustrates extreme pleiotropic phenotypes associated with an established causal mutation for hereditary cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    Infantile-onset hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCMP) should be considered a largely genetic condition, although its onset is most often triggered by infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] pulse pressure and mild hypotension 7.[slideshare.net] The globus nature of the heart on the CXR should also make you think of pericardial effusion vs a dilated cardiomyopathy.[em.emory.edu]

  • Jugular Venous Distention

    The differential diagnosis of Kussmaul's sign includes constrictive pericarditis , restrictive cardiomyopathy , pericardial effusion , and severe right-sided heart failure[wikidoc.org] Jugular venous distension, narrowed pulse pressure, and unilaterally decreased or absent breath sounds often indicate a tension pneumothorax.[ems1.com] It is associated most commonly with coronary artery disease, hypertension, aging, and infiltrative cardiomyopathy.[aafp.org]

  • Radix Aconiti

    To test the synergistic effects of theaqueous extract of Tubeimu (Rhizoma Bolbostemmatis) and Fuzi (Radix Aconiti Lateralis Preparata) on MDA-MB-231 and SKBR3 breast cancer cells. A combined index was created for the effects of Tubeimu (Rhizoma Bolbostemmatis) and Fuzi (Radix Aconiti Lateralis Preparata)[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Immediate diagnosis and treatment are required for better control of acromegalic cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] An 88-year-old man who had previously been diagnosed with apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy exhibited left ventricular asynergy on echocardiography before undergoing cholecystectomy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Mean survival time was longer in CVVH group with cardiomyopathy than in the SCUF group.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Addison's Disease

    The pathogenesis of this cardiomyopathy is unknown.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Reversible left ventricular dysfunction, also termed Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, is rarely reported in Addison's disease after initiation of hormone replacement therapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although we could not exclude coronary artery disease by coronary angiography, her clinical course and instrumental findings suggest Takotsubo cardiomyopathy of the apical[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
