216 Possible Causes for Congestive Heart Failure, Distended Neck Veins

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    This was associated with clinical resolution of congestive heart failure and a decrease in cardiac and left ventricular size documented by chest x-ray and echocardiography[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There may be distended neck veins, enlarged liver, swelling of the arms and legs, and signs of pleural effusion (fluid around the lungs).[aa.activeboard.com] failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Peripartum Cardiomyopathy

    Background A 49-year-old woman presented at hospital, 8 days after giving birth to twins, with signs and symptoms of congestive heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Physical signs like hyperventilation, edema, distended neck veins can be seen in normal pregnancy.[ijaweb.org] Management of PPCM is similar to that of congestive heart failure with a few exceptions, such as avoiding the use of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors during pregnancy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    Congestive heart failure (CHF) (5%) Collagen vascular disease (5%): systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis Infection (4%) HIV Bacterial infection: Staphylococcus[unboundmedicine.com] neck veins, worse with inspiration ( Kussmaul sign ) Diminished heart sounds ( Beck’s Triad : a combination of distended neck veins, hypotension, and diminished heart sounds[cardiachealth.org] These include HIV-positive patients, patients with end-stage renal disease, those with known or occult malignancies, a history of congestive heart failure, tuberculosis, autoimmune[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    As a result of another medical condition, such as cardiovascular disease (including congestive heart failure, atrial fibrillation and heart attack) or stroke.[my.clevelandclinic.org] Signs that indicate pulmonary hypertension and right ventricular failure include a loud pulmonary component of the second heart sound, right ventricular lift, distended neck[emedicine.medscape.com] It can mimic pneumonia, congestive heart failure, and a viral illness known as pleurisy.[vascularcures.org]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    A previously unreported case of small-vessel myocardial vasculitis presenting as restrictive cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure is described.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ) or bulging neck veins Enlarged liver Lung crackles and abnormal or distant heart sounds when listening to the chest with a stethoscope Signs of heart failure Fluid backup[quizlet.com] About one-half of the patients with congestive heart failure have preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (HFpEF).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    Cor pulmonale was produced, with congestive heart failure leading to a progressively downhill course in the 4 months before his death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Examination reveals cyanosis, distended neck veins, and a prominent epigastric pulsation Cor pulmonale is right ventricular enlargement and eventually failure secondary to[smartypance.com] It is approved for the treatment of acute exacerbations of congestive heart failure in hospitalized adult patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    Another clue is the rapid change in heart size or presence of cardiomegaly without the radiographic findings of congestive heart failure (pulmonary edema, etc.)[stritch.luc.edu] […] symptoms of right heart failure Cardiogenic shock , asystole Beck's triad for cardiac tamponade : hypotension , muffled heart sounds , distended neck veins ![amboss.com] heart failure , myxoedema , nephrotic syndrome ), exudative ( tuberculosis , spread from empyema ) hemorrhagic (trauma, rupture of aneurysms, malignant effusion). malignant[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    All of these types of cardiomyopathies can cause severe congestive heart failure.[womensheart.org] This is technically improper use of the term cardiomyopathy; however, it is much easier to say/write than "chronic systolic congestive heart failure from ischemic heart disease[healio.com] The progressive stretch of the heart’s myocardium reduces the volume of the cardiac output contributing to the development of congestive heart failure.[symptoma.com]

  • Secondary Cardiomyopathy

    […] left ventricle, myocardial dysfunction, and congestive heart failure . hypertrophic cardiomyopathy an increase in heart muscle weight, particularly of the left ventricle[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Congestive heart failure in rickets caused by vitamin D deficiency . Monatsschr Kinderheilkd 1989 ; 137 : 108 – 110 . 8.[cambridge.org] Keywords Cocaine Dilated cardiomyopathy Congestive heart failure Catecholamine Background More than 14 million people worldwide, mostly within the age range of 15 to 64 years[bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Other names for the condition besides congestive heart failure are: Left-sided heart failure Right-sided heart failure Systolic heart failure Diastolic heart failure.[congestive-heart-failure.emedtv.com] Distended neck veins. Bluish skin. Chest pain. Enlarged liver and swollen abdomen.[nmihi.com] Distended neck veins with raised and/or prominent JVP and visible a or v waves. 3rd/4th heart sounds and pansystolic murmur of tricuspid regurgitation over right heart.[patient.info]
