118 Possible Causes for Chest Bruit

  • Pulmonary Arteriovenous Fistula

    Physical examination showed nasal telangiectasias, cyanosis of the lips and nails, and a systolic bruit over the left lung.[] On admission, he was asymptomatic and his physical examination disclosed bruit on the right chest wall audible only on inspiration.[] […] over the lesion which with inspiration Orthodexia increased hypoxemia with PaO2 Palpitations, chest pain, no CHF Imaging Findings Location About 2/3 in lower lobes Then,[]

  • Takayasu Arteritis

    (70%), p   0.034), and chest pain (0 (0%) vs. 6 (26%), p   0.023) compared to patients with TAK 40 (n   23).[] […] pain Noises heard over the arteries (bruits) when listening with a stethoscope When to see a doctor Seek immediate medical attention for shortness of breath, chest pain or[] Of the 43 patients, 20 had TAK 40; this group had significantly fewer instances of orthostatic hypotension (2 (10%) vs. 10 (43%), p   0.019), carotid bruit (7 (35%) vs. 16[]

  • Pulmonary Arteriovenous Malformation

    We report the case of a 70-year-old man with a 6 cm spherical mass incidentally found on chest X-ray.[] On physical examination, telangiectasias may be noticed on the nose, lips, tongue, chest, and upper limbs.[] […] over the lesion which with inspiration Orthodexia increased hypoxemia with PaO2 Palpitations, chest pain, no CHF Imaging Findings Location About 2/3 in lower lobes Then,[]

  • Coarctation of the Aorta

    A soft bruit may be heard over the coarctation site. Diagnosis is by echocardiography or by CT or MR angiography.[] Symptoms vary with the anomaly’s severity and range from headache, chest pain, cold extremities, fatigue, and leg claudication to fulminant heart failure and shock.[]

  • Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm

    A 48-year-old Japanese woman with Behçet's disease suffered successive rupture of thoracic aortic and cerebral aneurysms within one year. The patient underwent successful surgical treatment for both aneurysms. Histological examination of the aneurysm walls revealed lymphocyte infiltration into the adventitia with[…][]

  • Seat Belt Injury

    Seat belts uncommonly result in various injuries to the abdominal area, such as mesenteric tears, bowel perforations, and abdominal aortic ruptures. We describe a case of a massive subcutaneous hematoma causing hemorrhagic shock from significant lacerations to the inguinal region, related to the use of a seat belt.[…][]

  • Ductus Arteriosus Aneurysm

    We report the case of an infant boy born at 39 weeks and 5 days who presented a cleft lip and palate. During the assessment to detect associated malformations, cardiac auscultation revealed a systolic heart murmur. Echocardiography and subsequent thoracic computed tomography angiography identified an aneurysm[…][]

  • Giant Cell Aortic Arteritis

    By Mitchel L. Zoler Internal Medicine News Key clinical point: Risk for aortic aneurysm dissection in patients with giant-cell arteritis showed no link to aneurysm size. Major finding: GCA patients with dissection or rupture of an aortic aneurysm had aneurysms that were similar in size to those of GCA patients without[…][]

  • Aortitis

    Clostridium septicum aortitis is a rare cause of aortic dissection. So far, only 28 cases have been described in literature before. Most of these cases occurred in elderly patients and an association to colonic neoplasms and/or atherosclerosis has been witnessed frequently. Here we report the case of a[…][]

  • Mycotic Aneurysm

    The mortality of patients with mycotic aneurysms is high, especially in East Asia, and infection by Salmonella species is the most common. Our study aimed to improve prognosis of adult mycotic aneurysms with early diagnosis and accurate treatment. Four adult patients with mycotic aneurysm caused by Salmonella were[…][]
