  • Heart Failure

Anorexia.[patient.info] […] stress, weakness, lethargy Fluid retention (swelling of the legs or abdomen, weight gain), nocturia Dry cough (" heart cough "), especially at night Dizziness, palpitations, syncopes[flexikon.doccheck.com]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

  • Myocardial Infarction

    Find out more Cancer therapy-induced cardiomyopathy: can human induced pluripotent stem cell modelling help prevent it?[eurheartj.oxfordjournals.org] She presented with chest pain and breathlessness with brief syncope, lab results and electrocardiogram findings were consistent with acute myocardial infarction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This is a case series of 3 patients, all women, aged 72, 64, and 54 years who presented to the emergency department with chest pain or syncope and were found to have STEMI[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lymphocytic Myocarditis

    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] […] resistant to standard clinically directed antiarrhythmic medication programs or high grade ventricular arrhythmia (Lown class greater than or equal to IV B) with or without syncope[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Images hosted on other servers: Etiology of Myocarditis Clinical features Asymptomatic or nonspecific symptoms of chest pain, fever, sweats, chills, dyspnea Palpitations, syncope[pathologyoutlines.com]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Pulsus alternans is an infrequent, complex pathophysiologic sign often associated with severe heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Toxins-induced cardiomyopathy – the most common toxin is ethanol following by illegal drug abuse of cocaine and amphetamines.[escardio.org] Here, we report a Chinese family with typical DCM, ventricular tachycardia, syncope, and SCD.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Myocarditis

    Drug-induced hypersensitivity syndrome due to mexiletine associated with human herpes virus 6 and cytomegalovirus reactivation.[scielo.br] A 43-year-old man was admitted to our hospital presenting with seizures and syncope. He had a history of a cold with a fever of 39 C occurring three days earlier.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chest pain, dyspnea, and syncope are principal symptoms. The clinical course, however, varies from asymptomatic to sudden cardiac death.[symptoma.com]

  • Hypersensitivity Myocarditis

    A prompt diagnosis, immediate withdrawal of the offending drug and immunosuppressant therapy may decrease mortality in drug-induced acute EM [ 1 ].[karger.com] Images hosted on other servers: Etiology of Myocarditis Clinical features Asymptomatic or nonspecific symptoms of chest pain, fever, sweats, chills, dyspnea Palpitations, syncope[pathologyoutlines.com] However, individuals with complete heart block may experience episodes of unconsciousness (syncope), breathlessness, and/or fatigue.[rarediseases.org]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    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] Presentation 45 year old man presented to ED following syncopal event. Drinks one of spirits a day. Exercise tolerance of less than 20m.[radiopaedia.org] Leg elevation promptly reversed the pulsus alternans, and the echocardiographic abnormality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Toxic Myocarditis

    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] Other people have fever, chest pain, cardiac arrhythmias (abnormally fast, slow or irregular heartbeats), sudden loss of consciousness (syncope) or signs of heart failure[drugs.com] […] distress, and failure to thrive Fatigue, weakness, dyspnea, nausea, vomiting Cardiac arrhythmias : often sinus tachycardia ;, ventricular extrasystoles with palpitations or syncope[amboss.com]

  • Ventricular Bigeminy

    Premature ventricular contraction-induced concealed mechanical bradycardia and dilated cardiomyopathy. J Cardiovasc Electrophysiol. 2005 ; 16: 88 – 91.[tandfonline.com] Abstract This article describes 18 patients with drug-resistant ventricular bigeminy and other forms of complex ventricular ectopy (allorhythmias) associated with recurrent syncope[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] alternans or trigeminus R00.8 Trigeminy R00.8 ICD-10-CM Codes Adjacent To R00.8 Q99 Other chromosome abnormalities, not elsewhere classified Q99.0 Chimera 46, XX/46, XY Q99.1[icd10data.com]
