199 Possible Causes for Chest X-Ray Abnormal, Left Atrial Enlargement

  • Right Atrial Hypertrophy

    But atrial fibrillation can develop in the absence of left atrial enlargement. With persistent atrial fibrillation, however, the atria eventually enlarge.[] The ECG contour of the normal P-wave, P mitrale (left atrial enlargement) and P pulmonale (right atrial enlargement) Abnormal P-waves: atrial enlargement If an atria becomes[] [Chapter Menu] Left atrial enlargement: Dilation or hypertrophy of the left atrium may increase the DURATION of the P wave.[]

  • Giant Left Atrium

    Abstract Severe left atrial enlargement associated with mitral valve disease has been known to carry a poor prognosis in patients undergoing mitral valve repair or replacement[] Abstract This article emphasizes that the abnormalities noted on chest x-ray films of the chest can be diagnostic of giant left atrium.[] It has been my experience that an x-ray film of the chest, such as the one shown by Schvartzman and White, 1 is diagnostic of a giant left atrium; no other condition produces[]

  • Mitral Valve Insufficiency

    In acute mitral regurgitation, radiographic signs of left atrial enlargement are often absent 5 .[] In acute mitral regurgitation, radiographic signs of left atrial enlargement are often absent 5.[] Electrocardiography shows rhythm and conduction abnormalities, left atrial enlargement and right ventricular hypertrophy if pulmonary hypertension is present.[]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    Left ventricular diastolic dysfunction may lead to compensatory left atrial hypertrophy, with signs of left atrial enlargement (“ P mitrale “) on the ECG.[] An electrocardiogram (ECG) is also done and is almost always abnormal. Other heart tests include a Holter monitor, and chest x-ray.[] A chest x-ray may be done, which will show an enlarged heart, but this is not specific to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.[]

  • Left Ventricular Hypertrophy

    Hypertension (HTN) is the most common cause of hypertensive heart disease, which comprises of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), left atrial enlargement, diastolic dysfunction[] atrial enlargement, and QT interval.[] Enlargement of the left ventricle is commonly associated with left atrial enlargement as well as incomplete LBBB.[]

  • Hypertensive Heart Disease

    This is a retrospective study: it was designed to evaluate the additive clinical value of left atrial enlargement (LAe) assessment in the evaluation of cardiac organ damage[] ., abnormal heart sounds or abnormal electrocardiogram or chest x-ray, hypertension or hypotension, diabetes mellitus, an acute myocardial infarction (MI), an arrhythmia,[] The aim of this study was to evaluate the predictive value of left atrial (LA) enlargement in the early stage of hypertensive heart disease and to explore the correlations[]

  • Hypertension

    atrial enlargement in the presence of obesity: re-calibration against cardiac magnetic resonance , Journal of Human Hypertension , 31 , 3 , (212) , (2017) .[] […] pressures with left atrial hypertrophy and enlargement, increased atrial fibrosis, and slowing of intra-atrial and interatrial electrical conduction velocities.[] Dastidar, B McIntyre, A E Burchell, L E K Ratcliffe, E C Hart, M C K Hamilton, J F R Paton, A K Nightingale and N E Manghat , Electrocardiographic detection of hypertensive left[]

  • Cardiomegaly

    , left Atrial enlargement, right Bilat atrial enlargement Bilateral enlargement of atria Cardiomegaly (enlarged heart) Hypertrophy or dilatation of right ventricle Left atrial[] What can cause an abnormal heart shadow on an X-ray? Typically, when a chest x-ray is taken, the heart may show up as a shadow.[] […] heart CTR 68% Left atrial enlargement Hover on/off image to show/hide findings Tap on/off image to show/hide findings Left atrial enlargement This image shows massive cardiomegaly[]

  • Mitral Annulus Calcification

    Although such calcification may be unrelated to the terminal lethal mechanism, the association with left atrial enlargement, atrial fibrillation, mitral regurgitation, mitral[] Mitral annulus calcification is usually asymptomatic unless it is severe enough to impair forward blood flow or cause severe mitral regurgitation, leading to left atrial enlargement[] It is also known that patient with MAC have higher prevalence of left atrial and left ventricular enlargement, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, atrial fibrillation, aortic valve[]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Common ECG associations with DCM Left atrial enlargement - may progress to atrial fibrillation.[] Chest x-ray Cardiomegaly left-sided hypertrophy with a balloon appearance Signs of heart failure decompensation: pulmonary edema Endomyocardial biopsy (see pathology) Pathology[] Chest X-ray may reveal an enlarged or abnormal heart shape or excess fluid accumulation within the lungs .[]
