80 Possible Causes for Cor Pulmonale, Increased Jugular Venous Pressure

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    As right ventricular hypertrophy ensues, a right ventricular heave may be palpated at the lower left sternal border and increased right atrial pressure may cause elevation[] Cor pulmonale, one of the complications of this type of diffuse parenchymal lung disease is even rarer.[] Cor pulmonale develops in association with end-stage disease and classic signs of right heart failure may be present.[]

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    […] compliance and signs of right-sided failure appear: jugular venous distension, hepatic congestion, ascites, and peripheral edema.[] PULMONALE AND PULMONARY EMBOLISM Acute Cor Pulmonale and Pulmonary Embolism: Massive Embolization Acute Cor Pulmonale and Pulmonary Embolism: Embolism of Lesser Degree Without[] Secondary TR is due to annular dilatation and increased tricuspid leaflet tethering in relation to right ventricular pressure overload (eg, pulmonary hypertension, cor pulmonale[]

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    Jugular enlargement – This vein engorges with the increasing jugular venous pressure.[] Currently, the most widely used applications of FUSA include the guidance and characterization of perioperative shock (acute cor pulmonale, left ventricular dysfunction, cardiac[] Kussmaul sign This was described by Adolph Kussmaul as a paradoxical increase in jugular venous distention and pressure during inspiration.[]

  • Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension

    […] of one or more WHO functional class; worsening right ventricular failure (e.g., as indicated by increased jugular venous pressure; new/worsening hepatomegaly, ascites, or[] pulmonale I26.01 Septic pulmonary embolism with acute cor pulm...[] In both acute and chronic disease, pulmonary vascular disease and cor pulmonale (right heart failure) may develop and lead to CTEPH.[]

  • Recurrent Pulmonary Embolism

    Greater attention is presently being directed toward the frequent occurrence of chronic embolization and its sequelae, chronic hypertension and cor pulmonale. 1 2 3 4 5 6[] We present the case of a woman with KTWS, cor pulmonale, and death due to recurrent pulmonary embolism (PE).[] Five cases with recurrent pulmonary embolism (RPE), all having severe chronic cor pulmonale due to marked pulmonary hypertension, were reported.[]

  • High Output Heart Failure

    Physical findings are increased jugular venous pressure, tachycardia usually with a third heart sound, bilateral bibasilar crackles and a wide pulse pressure.[] pulmonale, exercise, fever, high humidity, systemic HTN, obesity, pregnancy, emotional stress and temperature extremes, or non-physiologic in Albright's disease–polyostotic[] Patients may present with the usual signs of high-output heart failure including tachycardia, elevated pulse pressure, hyperkinetic precordium, and jugular venous distension[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    jugular venous pressure) are often obscured by hyperinflation of the chest 6 which is present in a number of COPD patients.[] Chronic cor pulmonale is defined as right heart hypertrophy and/or chronic right heart failure.[] Jugular venous pressures are always increased. Cardiac palpation may reveal a right ventricular heave.[]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    In fact, drainage of fluid lowered the blood pressure in these patients. 3. Increased jugular venous pressure- which decreases during inspiration. 4.[] Effusion may be secondary to systemic or pericardial disease, cor pulmonale, pericardial granuloma or left ventricular dysfunction. 4 , 5 A patchy distribution may lead to[] pulmonale *IVC collapse therefore very unlikely tamponade **IVC plethora at baseline The anterior epicardial fat pad is a heterogenous hypoechoic tissue with internal echoes[]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    Physical examination is notable for elevated jugular venous pressure, often with Kussmaul's sign (paradoxical increase in jugular venous pressure with inspiration).[] The respiratory variation in restrictive cardiomyopathy is rarely enough to raise a suspicion of constrictive pericarditis, particularly if cases of cor pulmonale are correctly[] pressures Jugular venous pressure may be increased Left ventricular impulse is usually normal and palpable Third heart sound may be audible due to rapid ventricular filling[]

  • Right Ventricular Disorder

    A paradoxical increase in the jugular venous pressure during inspiration (Kussmaul sign) is indicative of right-sided heart failure and can be seen in RV failure, restrictive[] Acute right heart syndromes Synonyms Acute right ventricular failure; acute cor pulmonale; acute right ventricular dysfunction; acute pulmonary hypertension; cor pulmonale[] Morphologische Veränderungen des Ventrikels beeinflussen dabei die funktionelle Dynamik des Cor pulmonale.[]
