30 Possible Causes for Distended Neck Veins, Impaired Exercise Tolerance

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    The impairment of exercise tolerance indicated by NYHA classification was markedly improved by PD for both groups.[] 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[] Numerous mechanisms unrelated to hemodynamic dysfunction may underlie impaired exercise tolerance in patients with chronic heart failure.[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    Examination reveals cyanosis, distended neck veins, and a prominent epigastric pulsation Cor pulmonale is right ventricular enlargement and eventually failure secondary to[] 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[] neck veins with prominent a or v waves, and cyanosis may be seen. the heart and lung are intricately related. whenever the heart is affected by disease, the lungs will follow[]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    BACKGROUND: Coronary artery fistula, first described by Krause in 1865, is an abnormal communication between the coronary artery and one of the four chambers of the heart or one of the great vessels. The communications are often congenital but may also be acquired from trauma or invasive cardiovascular[…][]

  • Recurrent Pulmonary Embolism

    OBJECTIVE: The purpose of our study was to compare the bronchial arteries of patients with acute pulmonary embolism with those of patients with chronic or recurrent pulmonary embolism. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-seven patients with acute pulmonary embolism and 14 patients with chronic or recurrent pulmonary[…][]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    The cardinal manifestations of HF are dyspnea and fatigue, which may limit exercise tolerance, and fluid retention, which may lead to pulmonary congestion and peripheral edema[] Definition of HF Heart failure is a complex clinical syndrome that can result from any structural or functional cardiac disorder that impairs the ability of the ventricle[] Both abnormalities can impair the functional capacity and quality of life of affected individuals, but they do not necessarily dominate the clinical picture at the same time[]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Cardiovascular impairments are frequent in Cushing's syndrome and the hypercortisolism can result in cardiac structural and functional changes that lead in rare cases to dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). Such cardiac impairment may be reversible in response to a eucortisolaemic state.A 43-year-old man with a medical[…][]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    ) or bulging neck veins Enlarged liver Lung crackles and abnormal or distant heart sounds when listening to the chest with a stethoscope Signs of heart failure Fluid backup[] ) or bulging neck veins Enlarged liver Lung crackles and abnormal or distant heart sounds in the chest heard through a stethoscope Fluid backup into the hands and feet Signs[] Other symptoms may include: Chest pain Decreased alertness or concentration Low urine production Need to urinate at night (in adults) An examination may show: Enlarged (distended[]

  • Chronic Constrictive Pericarditis

    She then developed insidious progressive impairment in her exercise tolerance.[] During inspiration, the neck veins become distended (normally, they collapse).[] The veins of the neck were moderately distended in the erect position; in the supine position they were markedly so.[]

  • Superior Vena Cava Syndrome

    Physical examination can reveal distended neck veins, edema of the upper extremities, while various neurological deficits may be encountered.[] Classic symptoms include edema, plethora, and distended veins of the face, neck, and chest; shortness of breath; cough; headache; and hoarseness.[] […] and distended veins in the upper chest and arms Upper limb edema Lightheadedness Cough Edema (swelling) of the neck, called the collar of Stokes Pemberton's signSuperior[]

  • Primary Cardiomyopathy

    Abstract Eleven patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy and eight patients with idiopathic congestive cardiomyopathy underwent extensive neuromuscular studies to determine if a skeletal myopathy is associated with uncomplicated primary cardiomyopathy. The clinical examination revealed peripheral[…][]
