145 Possible Causes for Decreased Femoral Pulse, S4 Gallop

  • Leriche Syndrome

    femoral pulses erectile dysfunction This combination is known as Leriche syndrome. [1] However, any number of symptoms may present, depending on the distribution and severity[en.wikipedia.org] Obstruction in the more proximal vessels is easily recognized when palpation of the femoral artery reveals decreased or absent pulse.[symptoma.com] Signs and symptoms [ edit ] Classically, it is described in male patients as a triad of the following signs and symptoms : claudication of the buttocks and thighs absent or decreased[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Dissecting Aortic Aneurysm

    We report a case of 65-year male patient, a known hypertensive and a chronic smoker, who presented to the Civil Hospital, Karachi with complaints of cough, hemoptysis and shortness of breath for three weeks. The chest radiograph showed left apical solitary pulmonary nodule (SPN) and aneurysmal dilatation of the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypertension

    Coarctation of the aorta frequently causes a decreased blood pressure in the lower extremities relative to the arms, or delayed or absent femoral arterial pulses.[en.wikipedia.org] […] pressure in the lower extremities or delayed or absent femoral arterial pulses may indicate aortic coarctation; truncal obesity, glucose intolerance, and purple striae suggest[doi.org] Pheochromocytoma should be suspected in patients with labile hypertension or with paroxysms of hypertension accompanied by headache, palpitations, pallor, and perspiration. 77 Decreased[doi.org]

  • Hypertensive Heart Disease

    Generally speaking, the pulse volume is normal, even though it can be decreased when LV dysfunction appears.[symptoma.com] If coarctation of the aorta is the hypertension etiological factor, radial-femoral delay can be observed.[symptoma.com]

  • Anemia

    Although many parts of the body help make red blood cells, most of the work is done in the bone marrow. Bone marrow is the soft tissue in the center of bones that helps form all blood cells. Healthy red blood cells last between 90 and 120 days. Parts of your body then remove old blood cells. A hormone called[…][nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Cardiac palpation and auscultation for ventricular and atrial gallop rhythms (S3, S4) should be performed.[doi.org] The quality of the heart sounds, and the presence of atrial and ventricular gallops and valvular murmurs are important for diagnosis and clinical assessment.[doi.org]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    Heart sounds are auscultated for S3 or S4 gallops or new heart murmurs. Patient care and other activities should be organized to allow for periods on uninterrupted rest.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
