132 Possible Causes for Distended Neck Veins, Pulmonary Embolism

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    The history and clinical examination of a case of pulmonary embolism are usually not sufficient to establish the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism with certainty.[] The clinical examination may reveal signs of acute right ventricular dysfunction, including tachycardia, a low arterial blood pressure, distended neck veins, an accentuated[] Signs that indicate pulmonary hypertension and right ventricular failure include a loud pulmonary component of the second heart sound, right ventricular lift, distended neck[]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Pulmonary angiography (x-ray of blood vessels in the lungs after injection with a contrast medium) can be used to detect pulmonary embolism (blood clot in the lungs), but[] Right sided heart failure may result from an acute condition sich as right ventricle infarction or pulmonary embolism.[] Acute dilatation of the RV, for example in RV infarction or significant pulmonary embolism, shifts the septum to the left.[]

  • Recurrent Pulmonary Embolism

    […] in the group with acute pulmonary embolism (p 0.0002).[] The primary trial endpoints were a finding of a clinically apparent recurrent pulmonary embolism, or laboratory evidence of subclinical pulmonary embolism.[] Abstract Five cases with recurrent pulmonary embolism (RPE), all having severe chronic cor pulmonale due to marked pulmonary hypertension, were reported.[]

  • Amniotic Fluid Embolism

    Amniotic fluid embolism and pulmonary embolism are 2 of the most common causes of maternal mortality in the developed world.[] Patients with acute pulmonary embolism had the lowest insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1 level (5 2-14 µg/L).[] […] vessels by embolized amniotic fluid.[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Embolism and Deep Venous Thrombosis More...[] 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[] embolism Drug-induced heart failure Excessive sodium intake Hemorrhage Anemia Diabetes Diagnosing Congestive Heart Failure Ohio State's Heart and Vascular Center treats more[]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    […] in several forms: a) Postobstructive pulmonary edema. b) Pulmonary edema with chronic pulmonary embolism. c) Pulmonary edema with veno-occlusive. d) Stage 1 near drowning[] Pulmonary Embolism What is a pulmonary embolism?[] It can be related to heart failure, called cardiogenic pulmonary edema, or related to other causes, referred to as non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema.[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    These advances are paralleled by a general, broader appreciation of the common occurrence of pulmonary embolism.[] 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[]

  • Acute Cor Pulmonale

    However, a negative TEE did not exclude left proximal or lobar pulmonary embolism.[] 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[]

  • Acute Massive Pulmonary Embolism

    We reviewed our 7-year experience of pulmonary embolectomy in patients with acute massive pulmonary embolism from 1997 to 2004.[] Signs of acute RV dysfunction include distended neck veins, a parasternal heave, an accentuated P2, and a tricuspid regurgitation murmur.[] With more extensive clot burden, findings include hypotension, hypoxemia, altered mental status, and signs of RV strain (distended neck veins, tricuspid regurgitation murmur[]

  • Right Ventricular Dilatation

    RESULTS: Thirty of 146 patients had a pulmonary embolism.[] The veins, particularly those of the neck, are distended, and the patient is more or less livid or bluish in appearance.[] Conclusion: The prevalence of RV dilatation is highest in patients with main pulmonary artery embolism or bilateral pulmonary artery embolism; furthermore, the prevalence[]
