87 Possible Causes for Cardiomyopathy, Pulsatile Liver

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    The aetiology of TR was degenerative in 52 cases (79%), post-traumatic in eight (12%) and secondary to dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in six (9%).[] Right heart failure leads to ascites, hepatosplenomegaly, pulsatile liver, peripheral edema and pleural overflow. In advanced stages patients are cachectic and cyanotic.[] Waagstein F, Caidahl K, Wallentin I, Bergh C-H, Hjalmarsson Å (1989) Long-term β-blockade in dilated cardiomyopathy.[]

  • Cardiac Amyloidosis

    We present a case of cardiac amyloidosis initially misdiagnosed as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and we discuss the key findings of the disease along with the latest evidence[] liver and 1 bilateral lower extremity pitting edema.[] We herein report a rare case of cardiac amyloidosis in which the patient presented with cardiac hypertrophy after a 20-year history of dilated cardiomyopathy and heart failure[]

  • Jugular Venous Distention

    The differential diagnosis of Kussmaul's sign includes constrictive pericarditis , restrictive cardiomyopathy , pericardial effusion , and severe right-sided heart failure[] Tricuspid regurgitation, if significant, will be accompanied by a pulsatile liver (feel over the lower costal margin).[] It is associated most commonly with coronary artery disease, hypertension, aging, and infiltrative cardiomyopathy.[]

  • Eisenmenger Syndrome

    Clinical Topics: Cardiac Surgery, Congenital Heart Disease and Pediatric Cardiology, Heart Failure and Cardiomyopathies, Invasive Cardiovascular Angiography and Intervention[] A third heart sound as well as hepatosplenomegaly or a pulsatile liver occur with right heart failure. 4.2.[]

  • Endocarditis

    Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy In hypertrophic cardiomyopathy , the heart muscle cells have enlarged and the walls of the heart chambers thicken.[] On examination, there was a loud holosystolic murmur, maximally audible in the epigastric space, and a pulsatile liver.[] Other predisposing factors include artificial heart valves, some congenital heart disorders, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and mitral valve prolapse with regurgitation.[]

  • Atrial Myxoma

    It may be due to undiagnosed concomitant dilated cardiomyopathy or unknown cardiodepressant effect of myxoma which warrants further research.[] Hepatomegaly was present, with the pulsatile liver palpated 6 cm below the right coastal margin, there was ascites and bowel sounds were present and normoactive.[] I was dreading the confirmation of cardiomyopathy, never thinking what was next to come.[]

  • Acute Pericarditis

    To the best of our knowledge this is the first report of acute idiopathic pericarditis causing stress-related cardiomyopathy.[] Hepatomegaly, a pulsatile liver, clinical ascites, and bilateral lower extremity edema? Does the patient have a pericardial friction rub?[] Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) is a relatively uncommon stress-induced cardiomyopathy that accounts for 2.2% of all acute myocardial infarctions.[]

  • Ascites

    Echocardiogram revealed restrictive cardiomyopathy and a speckle-tracking pattern suggestive of cardiac amyloidosis.[] Heart failure - distended jugular veins, palpable thrills and murmurs, enlarged & pulsatile liver; constrictive pericarditis - pulsus paradoxus c.[] Normal Peritoneum Portal Hypertension: Cirrhosis, IVC Obstruction, Budd Chiari Syndrome Cardiac Dysfunction: Congestive Heart Failure, Tricuspid Insufficiency, Cardiomyopathy[]

  • Endomyocardial Fibrosis

    Endomyocardial fibrosis is a rare cardiomyopathy characterized by thickening of the endocardium, which leads to a restrictive phenotype.[] liver, hepatomegally, ascites, edema, cyanosis, cachexia and malnutrition.[] Endomyocardial fibrosis (EMF) is a tropical cardiomyopathy reported in many tropical countries.[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    Constrictive pericarditis Restrictive cardiomyopathy Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy Tricuspid regurgitation Tricuspid stenosis Pulmonic regurgitation Pulmonic stenosis Atrial[] liver, a loud pulmonic component of the 2nd heart sound, or evidence of venous thrombosis.[] Depressed Ejection Fraction ( Coronary artery disease Nonischemic dilated cardiomyopathy Myocardial infarction a Familial/genetic disorders Myocardial ischemia a Infiltrative[]
