38 Possible Causes for Conduction Disorder of the Heart, Pulsus Alternans

  • Cardiomyopathy

    It is recognized that arrhythmias and conduction disease may be primary myocardial disorders.[circ.ahajournals.org] Specific Cardiomyopathies The term specific cardiomyopathies is now used to describe heart muscle diseases that are associated with specific cardiac or systemic disorders.[circ.ahajournals.org]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    disorders.[doi.org] Pulsus alternans is an infrequent, complex pathophysiologic sign often associated with severe heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] SCN5A Mutation Associated With Dilated Cardiomyopathy, Conduction Disorder, and Arrhythmia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    We herein report the case of a 25-year-old Japanese woman with left-main-trunk acute myocardial infarction (LMT-AMI). She had cardiogenic shock, so emergency percutaneous intervention was performed. Intravascular ultrasound of LMT-AMI showed that the three-layered structure of the intima, tunica media, and[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Fungal Myocarditis

    In diffuse lesions of the heart conduction disorders symptoms align with the formation of severe and life-threatening arrhythmias — fibrillation, atrial flutter.[mybodypain.com] Once heart dysfunction sets in, signs of cardiac failure may manifest, such as pulmonary edema (fluid accumulation in the lungs), peripheral oedema, hypoxemia, pulsus alternans[medindia.net] Symptoms include contractility disorders, cardiac conduction and excitability and complex common symptoms resulting from blood circulation disorders.[mybodypain.com]

  • Primary Cardiomyopathy

    The expert panel of the American Heart Association has suggested that ion channelopathies and disorders of conduction should also be considered as cardiomyopathies.[academic.oup.com] […] left ventricular dysfunction secondary to coronary artery occlusion, hypertension, valve disease, and congenital heart disease because the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders[academic.oup.com]

  • Heart Failure

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    Because of the shortage of donor hearts, 16 (33%) of 48 patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy died awaiting transplantation. Determining factors that predict effective coronary revascularization and identifying patients who may benefit from revascularization is crucial. From 1984 to 1990, 207 ischemic cardiomyopathy[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congestive Heart Failure
