37 Possible Causes for Dizziness, Tetralogy of Fallot, Wide Pulse Pressure

  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus

    […] arm or leg on one side of the body Sudden blurred vision or trouble seeing out of one or both eyes Can’t speak or trouble talking or understanding what others are saying Dizziness[] The PDA in tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia (ToF-PA) arises, in the left aortic arch, from underneath the arch and connects to the proximal left pulmonary artery[] Neonatal Presentation at Physical Exam Assessment can reveal: Wide pulse pressure Bounding peripheral pulses Apnea (in neonates) Unexplained metabolic acidosis Hypotension[]

  • Aortic Valve Insufficiency

    […] caused by your heart having to work harder shortness of breath – at first you may only notice this when you exercise, but later you may experience this even when resting dizziness[] It is accompanied by systolic hypertension and wide pulse pressure, which account for peripheral physical findings, such as bounding pulses.[] Hypertension Bicuspid aortic valve Membranous ventricular septal defect Ascending aortic aneurysm Aortic valve prolapse Signs and Symptoms Exertional dyspnea Chest pain (angina) Dizziness[]

  • Acute Aortic Regurgitation

    Dizziness and light-headedness. Abnormal heartbeats ( arrhythmias ). Chest pain or pressure ( angina ), often brought on by exertion.[] […] of Fallot - Eisenmenger's syndrome Right: pulmonary and tricuspid valves pulmonary valves ( stenosis, insufficiency ) - tricuspid valves ( stenosis, atresia ) - Ebstein's[] The traditional physical signs of a wide pulse pressure were absent.[]

  • Congenital Aortic Insufficiency

    Breathlessness with activity Chest pain, angina-type under the sternum, may radiate; crushing, squeezing, pressure, tightness; increased with exercise, relieved with rest Dizziness[] It is often associated with other pathologies like: interatrial septum defect, tetralogy of Fallot, pulmonary valve stenosis or ventricular septal defect.[] Owing to the volume load, most patients have systemic hypertension, a wide pulse pressure, and many of the eponymous findings due to this wide pulse pressure: head bobbing[]

  • Cyanotic Congenital Heart Disease

    We report the case of a cyanotic congenital heart disease patient with vertigo and dizziness who underwent a modified B-T fistula on childhood and developed, many years later[] […] of Fallot; Tetralogy of Fallot; Transposition of great vessels[] […] and/or measure blood pressure in upper and lower extremities Palpate for loud heart sounds, parasternal heave, apical impulse and thrill.[]

  • Acyanotic Congenital Heart Disease

    The person may experience: abnormal heart rhythms, known as arrhythmia cyanosis dizziness and fainting swelling of the organs or body tissues, known as edema breathlessness[] […] of Fallot.[] pulse pressure Small – moderate PDA: Normal or LVH Large PDA: BVH May have cardiomegaly and increased PVMs, depending on size of shunt (see Chapter 18, Section IX.A, for[]

  • Arteriovenous Fistula

    The most common symptoms of an AVF are: Purplish, bulging veins that can be seen through the skin of the head, face, or scalp Dizziness Headache Tingling of the arms or legs[] It is often associated with other pathologies like: interatrial septum defect, tetralogy of Fallot, pulmonary valve stenosis or ventricular septal defect.[] The physical manifestations of this would be a relatively normal systolic blood pressure with a decreased diastolic blood pressure resulting in a wide pulse pressure.[]

  • Congenital Absence of Ductus Arteriosus

    They may experience dizziness or shortness of breath, fainting or near-fainting episodes, chest pain, abnormal tiredness or fatigue, headaches, or nosebleeds.[] Willius FA (1948) Cardiac clinics CXXIV: An unusually early description of the so-called tetralogy of Fallot.[] Peripheral pulses are bounding as the run-off into the pulmonary circulation drops the diastolic pressure and causes a wide pulse pressure.[]

  • Sick Sinus Syndrome

    […] beta-blockers, digoxin, clonidine, sympatholytics, antiarrhythmics; hypothyroidism; hypothermia; neurologic defects; / K Clinical Common in elderly; if severe, associated with vertigo[] […] of Fallot; biventricular pacemakers may provide haemodynamic optimization in patients with CHF; 26 pacemakers able to deliver ATP may suit patients suffering from AT; 15,[] Patients with permanent or prolonged episodes of HB are markedly bradycardic with a wide pulse pressure.[]

  • Aortic Dilation

    They include: Severe, stabbing pain in the center of the chest, abdomen, or back Decreased ability to move an arm, leg, or other part of the body Rapid pulse Sweating Dizziness[] OBJECTIVES: This study evaluated predictors for aortic dilation (AD) in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (rTOF) using magnetic resonance angiography (MRA).[] pressure will be wide with a sudden collapse of the pulse at the end.[]
