61 Possible Causes for Chest X-Ray Abnormal, Narrow Pulse Pressure

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Chest X-ray and thoracic CT showed ground glass opacities or consolidation spreading from the hilar area to the peripheral area, suggesting central redistribution.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Signs There may be a tachycardia at rest, low systolic blood pressure (BP), a displaced apex (LV dilatation) or RV heave (pulmonary hypertension), a narrow pulse pressure[patient.info] To confirm the diagnosis the doctor may perform a number of tests including: Chest X-rays Blood tests 12-lead electrocardiograms (EKGs) Urinalysis Exercise tests/stress tests[advocatehealth.com]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    This patient had a clear history of carbon monoxide poisoning, acute respiratory distress, bilateral lung dry and moist rale, chest X-ray showed bilateral pulmonary edema,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] or seen but not clearly defined on the chest X-ray.[clevelandclinicmeded.com] abnormal ventricular wall movement, coronary angiography suggested left main trunk and 3-vessel lesions, suggesting diagnosis acute carbon monoxide poisoning, acute coronary[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    An electrocardiogram (ECG) is also done and is almost always abnormal. Other heart tests include a Holter monitor, and chest x-ray.[mottchildren.org] A chest x-ray may be done, which will show an enlarged heart, but this is not specific to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.[acsm.org] An electrocardiogram, or heart tracing, may show an abnormal electrical current flowing through the heart, due to thickened heart muscle causing changes in the current.[acsm.org]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    An ECG can detect enlarged chambers of your heart, heart disease and abnormal heart rhythms. Chest X-ray.[mayoclinic.org] Signs Examination of the pulse in significant AS reveals a slow-rising, flat character called pulsus parvus et tardus. [ 7 ] Blood pressure will show a narrow pulse pressure[patient.info] Chest X-ray. It may show calcium buildup in the valve, an enlarged left ventricle, or fluid buildup if you have developed heart failure.[myhealth.alberta.ca]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a rare but fatal complication of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with an associated mortality that ranges from 41% to 80%. The treatment consists of supplemental oxygenation, afterload reduction, intraaortic balloon pump, and surgical repair. In selected patients, extracorporeal[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dehydration

    The purpose of this study is to present a case report of a child with hyponatremic dehydration diagnosed after CF and to review the cases of 13 patients with CF who had the same initial presentation in our hospital. This report reviewed the clinical records of children diagnosed with CF to ascertain the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    The diagnosis is based largely on the combined results of a physical examination, electrocardiography (ECG), chest x-ray, and echocardiography.[merckmanuals.com] 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] ECG, chest x-ray, and echocardiography are required. The ECG is usually nonspecifically abnormal, showing ST-segment and T-wave abnormalities and sometimes low voltage.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Myxedema

    The ECG may reveal conduction abnormalities and bradycardia. The chest X-ray may show an enlarged heart and pulmonary edema.[journals.lww.com] pulse pressure.[emedicine.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.com]

  • Congenital Aortic Valve Stenosis

    Chest X-ray. It may show calcium buildup in the valve, an enlarged left ventricle, or fluid buildup if you have developed heart failure.[cigna.com] Signs Examination of the pulse in significant AS reveals a slow-rising, flat character called pulsus parvus et tardus. [ 7 ] Blood pressure will show a narrow pulse pressure[patient.info] Clinical examination classically reveals a narrow pulse pressure, a slow-rising peripheral pulse, pulsus parvus et tardus (weak and delayed pulse) in the carotid pulse, a[radiopaedia.org]

  • Addison's Disease
