3,911 Possible Causes for Congestive Heart Failure, Edema, Hypertension

  • Hypertension

    Hypertension is also sub-classified: JNC7 distinguishes hypertension stage I, hypertension stage II, and isolated systolic hypertension.[en.wikipedia.org] While mild lower extremity edema is common in normal pregnancy, rapidly increasing or nondependent edema may be a signal of developing preeclampsia.[web.archive.org] Signs of hypertensive retinopathy are frequently seen in adults 40 years and older, and are predictive of incident stroke, congestive heart failure, and cardiovascular mortality[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Coronary Atherosclerosis

    […] with no hypertension (CAD); and non-hypertensive with no CAD subjects as a control group (Ctr).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Signs suggestive of congestive cardiac failure may be seen such as limb edema, pulmonary congestion, diaphoresis, abdominal swelling, etc.[symptoma.com] heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aortic Valve Insufficiency

    The afterload excess caused by systolic hypertension leads to progressive LV dilation and systolic dysfunction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] and peripheral edema) and chest pain if coronary or aortic dissection is the cause of the regurgitation.[symptoma.com] heart failure.[uwhealth.org]

  • High Output Heart Failure

    Abstract Two cases of high-output heart failure associated with pulmonary hypertension are presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Detailed hemodynamic, metabolic and blood volume studies were performed in a patient with hydatidiform mole who developed pulmonary edema associated with a high cardiac[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Her symptoms and cardiovascular changes were consistent with congestive heart failure and severe preeclampsia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Glomerulonephritis

    […] management of hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Diuretics are necessary to resolve the edema and antihypertensives are equally vital.[symptoma.com] She was referred by her primary care physician for suspected congestive heart failure but she had an elevated creatinine level and an abnormal urinalysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heart Failure

    KEYWORDS: Heart failure; Left atrial pressure; Mean pulmonary artery pressure; Pulmonary hypertension; Pulmonary vascular resistance; Right heart dysfunction[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] edema in patients who in fact have cardiogenic edema.[emedicine.com] The Framingham Heart Study criteria are 100% sensitive and 78% specific for identifying persons with definite congestive heart failure.[medicalcriteria.com]

  • Myxedema

    […] to prevalence of the effect of alpha-adrenergic receptors, increased catecholamines, and increased systemic vascular resistance, causing some patients to have diastolic hypertension[emedicine.com] It can also be thought as nonpitting edema, in contrast to pitting edema. Myxedema can occur in the lower leg (pretibial myxedema) and behind the eyes (exophthalmos).[en.wikipedia.org] She had edema of the face (Panel A), coarse skin, thin hair, brittle nails, and nonpitting edema of the lower extremities (Panel B).[nejm.org]

  • Amyloidosis

    We report here a case of portal hypertension, ascites, and severe intrahepatic cholestasis as the initial presentation of hepatic amyloidosis and multiple myeloma, which followed[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] MGUS and myeloma patients that have atypical features, including unexplained weight loss; lower extremity edema, early satiety, and dyspnea on exertion should be considered[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CASE REPORT Our report describes a middle-aged man who presented to the Emergency Department with congestive heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The CHA 2 DS 2 -VASc stroke score (congestive heart failure, hypertension, age 75 (doubled), diabetes mellitus, prior stroke or transient ischemic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Peripheral edema: Edema develops in the feet in ambulatory patients and sacral edema in bed bound patients.[symptoma.com] The Framingham Heart Study criteria are 100% sensitive and 78% specific for identifying persons with definite congestive heart failure.[medicalcriteria.com]

  • Post-Streptococcal Glomerulonephritis

    […] the effect of oral captopril versus a combination of oral reserpine and frusemide in the treatment of 20 children with post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis (APGN) with hypertension[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A case of acute encephalopathy with posterior corticosubcortical vasogenic edema on magnetic resonance imaging is reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Severe hypertension was closely associated with either symptoms of an acute encephalopathy or congestive heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
