15 Possible Causes for Distended Neck Veins, Facial Swelling, Increased Jugular Venous Pressure

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    veins that stick out (are distended) Sounds (crackles) from fluid buildup in your lungs, heard through a stethoscope Swelling of the liver or abdomen Uneven or fast heartbeat[] […] couple of hours due to shortness of breath Weight gain Your health care provider will examine you for signs of heart failure: Fast or difficult breathing Leg swelling (edema) Neck[]

  • Superior Vena Cava Syndrome

    METHODS: Here, we report a case of facial swelling and severe bilateral pleural effusion secondary to superior vena cava occlusion in a 41-year-old woman.[] Physical examination can reveal distended neck veins, edema of the upper extremities, while various neurological deficits may be encountered.[] CASE PRESENTATION: A 28-year-old dialysis-dependent woman with IgA nephropathy developed facial swelling, head pressure, headache, nausea, dizziness and fever 6 weeks after[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    […] and other neck and facial veins Increased jugular venous pressure Hepatomegaly Cyanosis Abnormal heart sounds Physical indicators of cor pulmonale on exam: Pulmonary hypertension[] swelling or extension of neck veins–come in acutely exacerbated, they indeed may have more swelling in their legs.[] Examination reveals cyanosis, distended neck veins, and a prominent epigastric pulsation Cor pulmonale is right ventricular enlargement and eventually failure secondary to[]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    The fluid status is checked by jugular venous pressure, which usually gets accentuated by the hepatojugular reflux.[] Physical examination The patient appeared chronically ill, with facial swelling, mild scleral jaundice, lip cyanosis, engorgement of the jugular vein, and a reflux-positive[] Distended neck veins. Bluish skin. Chest pain. Enlarged liver and swollen abdomen.[]

  • Acute Cor Pulmonale

    swelling or extension of neck veins–come in acutely exacerbated, they indeed may have more swelling in their legs.[] neck veins, cyanosis, wheezes or crackles, split S2, systolic ejection murmur with click, S3/S4 with systolic tricuspid regurgitation, pitting edema What is cor pulmonale[] On his physical examination, the patient was tachydyspneic, hypohydrated (2 /4 ), pale (2 /4 ), acyanotic, and presenting facial edema.[]

  • Amniotic Fluid Embolism

    Towards the end of the procedure, the patient developed redness of her skin followed by facial swelling.[]

  • Valsalva Maneuver

    Valvular insufficiency may lead to increased venous pressure transmission during a Valsalva maneuver and thus contribute to venous ischemia in TGA.[] The maneuver is employed in CT and MRI scanning of the neck to distend the pharynx for mucosal assessment.[] Conclusions TGA is associated with an increase in the prevalence of jugular insufficiency.[]

  • Central Venous Pressure Increased

    Causes of raised jugular venous pressure Heart failure. Constrictive pericarditis (JVP increases on inspiration - called Kussmaul's sign). Cardiac tamponade.[] The patient will have peripheral edema in addition to facial swelling.[] Prognostic use of jugular venous pressure Elevated JVP in patients with heart failure is associated with an increased risk of hospital admission, death and subsequent hospitalisation[]

  • Jugular Venous Distention

    Interpretation: Distance between JVP and Sternum Normal: 4 cm or less Increased 4 cm (Jugular Venous Distention) Right-sided Heart Failure (most common) Increased Right Atrial[] edema, pleural effusions, or as a result of a proctoscopic examination table, and completely chew it before insertion. does alka seltzer enhance viagra One to two drops of[] Distended Neck Veins Causes Any pressure in the right ventricle and right atrium is the primary cause of distended neck veins.[]

  • Hemothorax

    This is related to an increase in venous pressure. Beck’s triad consists of hypotension, decreased heart sounds and JVD (increasing venous pressure).[] […] pneumothorax, cardiogenic failure, air embolism "Seat belt sign" deceleration or vascular injury; chest wall contusion/abrasion Paradoxical chest wall movement flail chest Facial[] neck veins, muffled heart sounds) - pulsus paradoxus - Kussmaul's sign - ECHO - IV fluids - pericardiocentesis - open thoracotomy[]
