879 Possible Causes for Cerebral Embolism, Systolic Thrill at Lower Left Sternal Border

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    Complications congestive heart failure sudden cardiac death from arrhythmia aortic valve regurgitation calcified cerebral embolism Heyde syndrome valvular heart disease general[radiopaedia.org]

  • Tetralogy of Fallot

    Systolic thrill at the lower left sternal border. Aortic ejection click.[patient.info] These blood clots may cause the blood supply to the brain (cerebral infarctions) to be interrupted temporarily.[rarediseases.org] A patient without cyanosis has a long, loud, systolic murmur with a thrill along the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT).[patient.info]

  • Ventricular Septal Defect

    3 to 4/6 holosystolic murmur (with or without thrill) at the lower left sternal border; this murmur is usually audible within the first few days of life (see table Heart[msdmanuals.com] Conclusion: The case reports on the chance finding of atrial septal aneurysm in the case of cerebral embolism.[escardio.org] Muscular defects can be heard along the lower left sternal border and may vary in intensity as the defect size changes with muscular contraction throughout systole.[circ.ahajournals.org]

  • Large Ventricular Septal Defect

    3 to 4/6 holosystolic murmur (with or without thrill) at the lower left sternal border; this murmur is usually audible within the first few days of life (see table Heart[merckmanuals.com] Small VSDs typically produce murmurs ranging from a grade 1 to 2/6 high-pitched, short systolic murmur (due to tiny defects that actually close during late systole) to a grade[merckmanuals.com]

  • Stroke

    Alcohol might contribute to stroke in several ways: induction of cardiac arrhythmias and cardiac wall motion abnormalities which predispose to cerebral embolism, induction[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Alcohol might contribute to stroke in several ways: induction of cardiac arrhythmias and cardiac wall motion abnormalities which predispose to cerebral embolism,[doi.org] (Cerebral thrombosis and cerebral embolism are ischemic strokes.)

  • Myocardial Infarction

    Alternatively, a thrombus can embolize from elsewhere in the body and become lodged in the cerebral vasculature ( Caplan 2009 ).[doi.org] Ischemic stroke is characterized by brain ischemia due to the obstruction of a cerebral artery ( Caplan 2009 ).[doi.org] As in myocardial infarction, a cerebral artery can be obstructed due to the rupture of an atherosclerotic plaque.[doi.org]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Intensive diabetes therapy aimed at achieving near normoglycemia reduces the risk of microvascular and neurologic complications of type 1 diabetes. We studied whether the use of intensive therapy as compared with conventional therapy during the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) affected the long-term[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
