14 Possible Causes for Drug-induced Cardiomyopathy, Edema, Pulsus Alternans

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Peripheral edema: Edema develops in the feet in ambulatory patients and sacral edema in bed bound patients.[symptoma.com] Find out more Cancer therapy-induced cardiomyopathy: can human induced pluripotent stem cell modelling help prevent it?[eurheartj.oxfordjournals.org] alternans (alternating large and small pulse pressures) and a raised JVP.[patient.info]

  • Heart Failure

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Other findings which are of importance include: cyanosis, clubbing, jugular venous distension, pulmonary edema, S 3 gallop, enlarged liver and peripheral edema.[symptoma.com] Toxins-induced cardiomyopathy – the most common toxin is ethanol following by illegal drug abuse of cocaine and amphetamines.[escardio.org] Pulsus alternans is an infrequent, complex pathophysiologic sign often associated with severe heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Myocarditis

    Among many cardiac imaging techniques, only cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) and computer tomography permit a direct detection of edema during acute myocarditis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Drug-induced hypersensitivity syndrome due to mexiletine associated with human herpes virus 6 and cytomegalovirus reactivation.[scielo.br] BACKGROUND: The purpose of the present study was to investigate the diagnostic value of T2-mapping in acute myocarditis (ACM) and to define cut-off values for edema detection[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    We describe a patient with pancytopenia, jaundice, and diffuse edema after a distal splenorenal shunt. His shunt was angiographically proved patent.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Models, Animal Ethanol/toxicity Gene Expression Regulation/drug effects Heart Failure/chemically induced Heart Failure/genetics* Heart Failure/pathology Humans Mice Mitochondria[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Leg elevation promptly reversed the pulsus alternans, and the echocardiographic abnormality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypersensitivity Myocarditis

    Luke's Medical Center with a 1-month history of progressive dyspnea on exertion, orthopnea, and dependent edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A prompt diagnosis, immediate withdrawal of the offending drug and immunosuppressant therapy may decrease mortality in drug-induced acute EM [ 1 ].[karger.com] Luke’s Medical Center with a 1-month history of progressive dyspnea on exertion, orthopnea, and dependent edema.[amphetamines.com]

  • Hemochromatosis-related Cardiomyopathy

    Varying degrees of degeneration, edema, and fibrosis of the myocardium can be seen. Electrocardiographic changes and even cardiac failure may occur.[histopathology-india.net] Toxins-induced cardiomyopathy – the most common toxin is ethanol following by illegal drug abuse of cocaine and amphetamines.[escardio.org] […] life by conventional therapy and repeated phlebotomies.Case ReportA 35-year-old single man was admitted to the hospital in January, 1966, because of anorexia, weight gain, edema[nejm.org]

  • Toxic Myocarditis

    A computed tomographic scan ruled out cerebral edema. The patient died of irreversible cardiac arrest 40 hours after admission.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Viruses account for most cases of myocarditis or inflammatory cardiomyopathy, which could induce an immune response causing inflammation even when the pathogen has been cleared[revespcardiol.org] Uremia : Fatty degeneration and edema of the myocardium due to uremic intoxication.[histopathology-india.net]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    The man was bitten on the left index finger and subsequently developed localized edema followed by hypotension, chest pain, and altered mental status.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Find out more Cancer therapy-induced cardiomyopathy: can human induced pluripotent stem cell modelling help prevent it?[eurheartj.oxfordjournals.org] […] product is limited and further studies need to be performed since serious problems could occur after heavy exposure such as loss of consciousness, laryngospasm, pulmonary edema[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • High Output Heart Failure
