177 Possible Causes for Cor Pulmonale, Decreased Vital Capacity

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Other test abnormalities may include Increased total lung capacity Increased functional residual capacity Increased residual volume Decreased vital capacity Decreased single-breath[merckmanuals.com] Edema in cor pulmonale. Lancet 1975 ; ii: 1289 – 1290. Google Scholar 27 Richens JM Howard P. Oedema in cor pulmonale. Clin Sci 1982 ; 62: 255 – 259.[doi.org] […] forced expiratory volume in 1 second to forced vital capacity (FEV 1 /FVC) ratio.[radiopaedia.org]

  • Pulmonary Fibrosis

    Vital capacity, functional residual capacity, total lung capacity, and forced vital capacity (FVC) all are reduced.[physio-pedia.com] Cor pulmonale develops in association with end-stage disease and classic signs of right heart failure may be present.[orpha.net] In severe disease, there may be cyanosis eventually leading to respiratory failure, pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale.[symptoma.com]

  • Kyphoscoliosis

    Sue displayed a restrictive lung pattern, evidenced by a decreased vital capacity and tidal volume with severe nocturnal dyspnoea, resulting in raised carbon dioxide levels[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present the case of a 59-year-old man with congenital kyphoscoliosis who developed cor pulmonale for the first time following intercontinental air travel.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] V/Q mismatch leads to significant hypoxia, and can progress to symptoms of Cor pulmonale. CXR shows significant distortion of spine and thorax.[meddean.luc.edu]

  • Pulmonary Disorder

    Other test abnormalities may include Increased total lung capacity Increased functional residual capacity Increased residual volume Decreased vital capacity Decreased single-breath[msdmanuals.com] […] with cor pulmonale survive longer than five years.[sleepfoundation.org] vital capacity, decreased DLCO, usually no obstructive component Multifocal, bilateral alveolar infiltrates ESR, high-resolution CT, lung biopsy Congestive heart failure[aafp.org]

  • Asbestosis

    […] pulmonary compliance ) Early: decreased DL CO Later: reduced vital capacity and total lung capacity Normal to increased ratio of FEV 1 to FVC Bronchoalveolar lavage Biopsy[amboss.com] The patient is suffering from dyspnea, severe hypoxemia and cor pulmonale. The patient is put on waiting lists for heart lung transplantation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients with Cor pulmonale may have varying degrees of cyanosis, hepatojugular reflux, jugular venous distension and pedal edema.[symptoma.com]

  • Pneumoconiosis

    The frequency of abnormal vital capacity increased, and the mean vital capacity decreased by 18% over the subsequent 10 years ( 33, 75 ).[atsjournals.org] A 79-yr-old man with pneumoconiosis complicated by cor pulmonale suffered from gout-related cellulitis of the left lower limb.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A heart deficiency called cor pulmonale may develop in severe cases. Sufferers are particularly vulnerable to infectious lung diseases such as tuberculosis.[infoplease.com]

  • Silicosis

    Eventually, cor pulmonale and respiratory failure develop.[emedicine.com]

  • Restrictive Lung Disease

    (7) 1.Decreased vital capacity 2.Expiratory flow rates remain normal 3.FEV1/FVC is preserved 4.Increased work of breathing (dyspnea) 5.Rapid, shallow breathing pattern (Leads[cram.com] We present a case of polyostotic fibrous dysplasia in a young man in whom the severe deformities of the chest wall and spine produced restrictive lung disease, cor pulmonale[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pulmonary function test demonstrates a decrease in the forced vital capacity. The main symptoms are shortness of breath and cough.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    […] forced vital capacity, a decrease in forced vital capacity remained an independent risk factor for mortality (decrease 10%; hazard ratio 2.47; 95% confidence interval 1.29[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cor pulmonale, one of the complications of this type of diffuse parenchymal lung disease is even rarer.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cor pulmonale develops in association with end-stage disease. In that case, classic signs of right heart failure may be present.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congestive Heart Failure
