58 Possible Causes for Echocardiogram Abnormal, Narrow Pulse Pressure

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Signs There may be a tachycardia at rest, low systolic blood pressure (BP), a displaced apex (LV dilatation) or RV heave (pulmonary hypertension), a narrow pulse pressure[patient.info] […] rhythms (arrhythmias or dysrhythmias) and detects problems with the heart muscle Echocardiogram (echo) - a noninvasive test that uses sound waves to produce a study of the[chw.org] Objective evidence of a structural or functional abnormality of the heart at rest: cardiomegaly, third heart sound, cardiac murmurs, echocardiogram abnormalities, raised natriuretic[patient.info]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    Left ventricular focal hypokinesia was seen by echocardiogram or angiography in 5 patients and abnormal coronary anatomy in none.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Unfortunately, the presence of wall motion abnormalities on the echocardiogram may be the result of an acute MI or previous (old) MI or other myopathic processes, limiting[web.archive.org] Low-dose dobutamine echocardiogram Viability was defined as the improvement of wall motion abnormalities in two or more segments of the infarct zone.[dx.doi.org]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    In 16 age- and gender-matched control subjects, CMR and ECG were performed and an echocardiogram was made when structural abnormalities were detected with CMR.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] and diastolic dysfunction, and electrophysiologic abnormalities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Between 30% and 60% of HCM patients are diagnosed after an abnormal EKG or echocardiogram (EP Service). However, HCM often manifests differently in children than adults.[columbiasurgery.org]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    Signs Examination of the pulse in significant AS reveals a slow-rising, flat character called pulsus parvus et tardus. [ 7 ] Blood pressure will show a narrow pulse pressure[patient.info] It shows the different structures of the heart and can show any abnormalities in your valves. There are two kinds of echocardiograms.[uwhealth.org] Clinical examination classically reveals a narrow pulse pressure, a slow-rising peripheral pulse, pulsus parvus et tardus (weak and delayed pulse) in the carotid pulse, a[radiopaedia.org]

  • Aortic Stenosis with Bicuspid Valve

    Signs Examination of the pulse in significant AS reveals a slow-rising, flat character called pulsus parvus et tardus. [ 7 ] Blood pressure will show a narrow pulse pressure[patient.info] This was found even in the absence of any abnormalities of the heart valve itself.[sciencedaily.com] A patient with a bicuspid aortic valve usually comes to attention due to the presence of a heart murmur or an abnormal heart sound.[pediatricheartspecialists.com]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a rare but fatal complication of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with an associated mortality that ranges from 41% to 80%. The treatment consists of supplemental oxygenation, afterload reduction, intraaortic balloon pump, and surgical repair. In selected patients, extracorporeal[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    Haemodynamic features delineated in the 1940s and '50s included the narrow pulse pressure in the right ventricle with normal systolic pressure and greatly increased diastolic[heart.bmj.com] Interventricular dependence is the hallmark of a diagnosis of constrictive pericarditis, and is typically seen on echocardiogram as abnormal septal motion or leftward movement[clinicaladvisor.com] Additionally, 2 mutation carriers with nondiagnostic abnormalities at electrocardiogram and echocardiogram and 5 phenotype-negative/genotype-positive individuals were identified[onlinejacc.org]

  • Congenital Aortic Valve Stenosis

    Signs Examination of the pulse in significant AS reveals a slow-rising, flat character called pulsus parvus et tardus. [ 7 ] Blood pressure will show a narrow pulse pressure[patient.info] It shows the different structures of the heart and can show any abnormalities in your valves. There are two kinds of echocardiograms.[uwhealth.org] Clinical examination classically reveals a narrow pulse pressure, a slow-rising peripheral pulse, pulsus parvus et tardus (weak and delayed pulse) in the carotid pulse, a[radiopaedia.org]

  • Supravalvular Aortic Stenosis

    pulse pressure Electrocardiogram: Although aortic stenosis does not lead to any specific findings on the electrocardiogram (ECG), it still often leads to a number of electrocardiographic[checkorphan.org] Echocardiogram may also show left ventricular hyperthrophy, thickened and immobile aortic valve and dilated aortic root.[checkorphan.org] Other peripheral signs include: Sustained, heaving apex beat, which is not displaced unless systolic dysfunction of the left ventricle has developed A precordial thrill Narrowed[checkorphan.org]

  • Rheumatic Aortic Valve Obstruction

    Clinical examination classically reveals a narrow pulse pressure, a slow-rising peripheral pulse, pulsus parvus et tardus (weak and delayed pulse) in the carotid pulse, a[radiopaedia.org]
