10 Possible Causes for Chest X-Ray Abnormal, Retrosternal Chest Pain, Short PR Interval

  • 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] Following admission she complained of retrosternal tightening type of a chest pain. She had elevated serum amylase and cardiac troponin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] chest pain with AMI [ 22 ], but rather they may show mental status changes or an initial difficulty in breathing.[doi.org]

  • 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] PR interval ( First-degree (PR 0.21 s, not shortening with hyperventilation), second-degree, or third-degree atrioventricular block To assess whether the changing pattern[doi.org] A chest x-ray may be done, which will show an enlarged heart, but this is not specific to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.[acsm.org]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

  • Acute Pericarditis

    Chest X-ray showed normal findings, and mild elevation of C-reactive protein was observed in the blood chemistry data.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Bundle branch block with short PR interval in healthy young people prone to paroxysmal tachycardia.[books.google.com] After 90 hours of 5-fluorouracil infusion, he developed severe retrosternal chest pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pericarditis

    Chest X-rays may be normal, but if there is a significant pericardial effusion, the heart shape may be abnormal. It is sometimes described as globular or flask shaped.[emedicinehealth.com] The PR interval (short arrow) is depressed because of inflammatory changes involving the atrial wall. B. Acute myocardial infarction.[aafp.org] We report a rare case of a mediastinal malignant granular cell tumor in a 41-year-old man presenting with dyspnea, retrosternal chest pain, and recurrent pericardial effusion[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Constrictive Pericarditis

    It shows abnormal rhythms and can sometimes detect heart muscle damage. Small sensors are taped to your skin to pick up the electrical activity. Chest X-ray.[cedars-sinai.org] The PR interval (short arrow) is depressed because of inflammatory changes involving the atrial wall. B. Acute myocardial infarction.[aafp.org] chest pain, often radiating to the neck, shoulders, or back.[clevelandclinicmeded.com]

  • Pericardial Calcification

    There was no peripheral edema Chest x-ray: Changes in the perihilar and paramediastinal region consistent with prior mantle irradiation for Hodgkin’s lymphoma.[scmr.org] The PR interval (short arrow) is depressed because of inflammatory changes involving the atrial wall. B. Acute myocardial infarction.[aafp.org] chest pain, often radiating to the neck, shoulders, or back.[clevelandclinicmeded.com]

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    ECG abnormalities were grouped into structural [left ventricular hypertrophy or atrial enlargement] and conduction abnormalities [prolonged corrected QT interval (QTc), short[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Dysphagia is a frequent gastrointestinal complaint and can present with symptoms of retrosternal chest pain, heartburn, regurgitation, or odynophagia.[emdocs.net] PR interval, left bundle branch block (LBBB), right bundle branch block (RBBB) and atrioventricular block (AVB), bradycardia, tachycardia, premature atrial complex, ectopic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Radiation Pericarditis

    Electrocardiogram is abnormal but nonspecific atrial fibrillation is common. Chest x-ray may show evidence of pericardial calcification.[brown.edu] The PR interval (short arrow) is depressed because of inflammatory changes involving the atrial wall. B. Acute myocardial infarction.[aafp.org] Symptomology The prototypical symptom of acute pericarditis is retrosternal chest pain which may also refer to the back and shoulders.[pathwaymedicine.org]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Chest x-ray Cardiomegaly left-sided hypertrophy with a balloon appearance Signs of heart failure decompensation: pulmonary edema Endomyocardial biopsy (see pathology) Pathology[amboss.com] Chest X-ray may reveal an enlarged or abnormal heart shape or excess fluid accumulation within the lungs .[emedicinehealth.com] […] bundle branch block (unfavorable prognosis) Laboratory Echocardiography Left atrial and ventricular dilation Reduced left ventricular ejection fraction ( LVEF ) Wall motion abnormalities[amboss.com]
