29 Possible Causes for Congestive Heart Failure, Hepatomegaly, Increased Area of Cardiac Dullness

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Additional symptoms may include fluid collection in the abdomen (ascites) and feet due to accumulation of fluid, congestion of the lungs, and an abnormally large liver (hepatomegaly[rarediseases.org] All of these types of cardiomyopathies can cause severe congestive heart failure.[womensheart.org] […] muffled heart sounds 41 with a third heart sound, 13,41 a mitral regurgitation murmur 13,41 or signs of pulmonary congestion. 13 Signs of systemic venous congestion including hepatomegaly[revportcardiol.org]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    The Framingham Heart Study criteria are 100% sensitive and 78% specific for identifying persons with definite congestive heart failure.[web.archive.org] Cardiac examination at the age of 6 years revealed constrictive pericarditis with significant elevation of atrial filling pressures, consecutive hepatomegaly, and protein[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Right upper quadrant sonogram revealed hepatomegaly of 15 cm, trace amount of perihepatic ascites, pericholecystic fluid, and also thickened edematous gallbladder wall with[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    Laboratory test B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels are sensitive for congestive heart failure.[symptoma.com] Jugular venous distention, peripheral edema, and hepatomegaly are evidence of elevated right heart pressures and right ventricular dysfunction.[emedicine.com] Structural changes have been noted in autopsies of chronic alcoholics without congestive heart failure.[symptoma.com]

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    Congestive heart failure (CHF) (5%) Collagen vascular disease (5%): systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis Infection (4%) HIV Bacterial infection: Staphylococcus[unboundmedicine.com] Other signs of cardiac tamponade includes dyspnea, tachypnea, hepatomegaly, paradoxical pulses, and dysphoria.[symptoma.com] The pericardial fluid can be classified as serous (congestive heart failure, radiation), fibrinous (infections, collagen vascular disease, uremia) or bloody (malignancy, tuberculosis[web.archive.org]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    Radiologic examinations were carried out, and the computed tomography scan revealed a hepatomegaly and a chest X-ray showed evidence of a unilateral pleural effusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Considerable amounts of pericardial fluid may muffle heart sounds, increase the area of cardiac dullness, and change the size and shape of the cardiac silhouette.[merckmanuals.com] 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]

  • Fetal Erythroblastosis

    Also, the newborn will be anemic and pale and present splenomegaly and hepatomegaly, caused by extramedullary hematopoiesis. Portal hypertension has the same cause.[symptoma.com] If the fetus is already severely anemic and has congestive heart failure, it may be at a serious disadvantage after birth because of pulmonary edema (as discussed below in[nejm.org] […] haemolyticus neonatorum (fetal erythroblastosis) with the following symptoms: anemia (due to the hemolysis) splenomegaly (location of the macrophages that destroy the erythrocytes) hepatomegaly[embryology.ch]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    The abdominal exam revealed hepatomegaly. The extremities displayed cyanosis and poor perfusion, with no edema.[revportcardiol.org] Congestive heart failure and malignant arrhythmias are the most widespread complications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We herein report a case of congestive heart failure in a patient with EGPA.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    Rarely, right ventricular failure with systemic venous congestion, hepatomegaly, and edema precede LV failure.[emedicine.medscape.com] The present patient had severe critical AS with congestive heart failure that was refractory to medical therapy and the fetus was viable ( 28 wks).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] an S3 or S4 gallop, the irregular rhythm of atrial fibrillation, an enlarged and laterally displaced point of maximal impulse, pulmonary rales, jugular venous distention, hepatomegaly[doi.org]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    Abstract Dilated cardiomyopathy, owing to any cause, usually culminates in the clinical syndrome of congestive heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Crow-Fukase syndrome was diagnosed on the basis of findings of polyneuropathy, hepatomegaly, monoclonal hypergammaglobulinemia, and hypertrichosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Signs and tests include: hepatomegaly; "crackles" in the lungs (heard with a stethoscope); extra heart sounds; and elevated pressure in the neck vein.[symptoma.com]

  • Large Ventricular Septal Defect
