41 Possible Causes for Chest X-Ray Abnormal, Short PR Interval, X-Ray Abnormal

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Chest CT may reveal abnormalities that are not apparent on the chest x-ray and may also suggest coexisting or complicating disorders, such as pneumonia, pneumoconiosis, or[merckmanuals.com] Findings on a chest x-ray or computed tomography (CT) of the chest may also help in diagnosis of emphysema and sometimes chronic bronchitis.[merckmanuals.com] […] seen on a chest X-ray To assess suitability for lung volume reduction procedures Serum alpha-1 antitrypsin To assess for alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency if early onset, minimal[pathways.nice.org.uk]

  • 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]

  • 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] Radiofrequency Ablation : A catheter with an electrode at its tip is guided through the veins to the heart muscle with real-time, moving X-rays displayed on a video screen[physio-pedia.com] […] or seen but not clearly defined on the chest X-ray.[clevelandclinicmeded.com]

  • 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]

  • Ebstein Malformation

    Chest X-ray may show cardiomegaly and a large right atrium and ventricle producing a globular shadow.[symptoma.com] The classic WPW ECG pattern consists of : A short PR interval (rapid AV conduction through the accessory pathway) Delta wave (initial slow ventricular activation due to fiber[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu] The health care provider may hear abnormal heart sounds, such as a murmur, when listening to the chest with a stethoscope.[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 2

    The electrocardiogram typically shows short PR intervals and tall QRS complexes; true Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome has been reported in some patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ECG shows a short PR interval as well as very tall QRS complexes.[dx.doi.org] In addition, the electrocardiogram (ECG) may show conduction abnormalities including a short PR interval, characteristic tall QRS complexes, and Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome[dx.doi.org]

  • 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] […] paradoxus, raised jugular venous pressure, muffled heart sounds, decreased electrocardiographic voltage with electrical alternans and an enlarged cardiac silhouette on chest X-ray[en.my-ekg.com]

  • 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] Then doctors look for signs of pericardial effusion by doing a chest x-ray and echocardiography (a procedure that uses ultrasound waves to produce an image of the heart).[merckmanuals.com]

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    Non-laboratory tests X-rays or other imaging tests may be ordered to examine organs potentially affected by lupus. In addition, a kidney biopsy may be performed.[labtestsonline.org] 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] […] other inflammatory conditions C-reactive protein (CRP) – another marker of inflammation that may be elevated with lupus Cryoglobulin – frequently positive; cryoglobulins are abnormal[labtestsonline.org]

  • 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] Electrocardiogram is abnormal but nonspecific atrial fibrillation is common. Chest x-ray may show evidence of pericardial calcification.[brown.edu]
