47 Possible Causes for Echocardiogram showing Dilation of Inferior Vena Cava

  • High Output Heart Failure

    Echocardiogram showed a dilated right ventricle with severe pulmonary hypertension and a non collapsing inferior vena cava (IVC).[] Physical examination showed jugular venous distension, lung crecipitations, femoral bruit and pitting pedal edema.[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    Abdominal ultrasound showed liver congestion with dilatation of the inferior vena cava and of the supra-hepatic veins. Serologies for B and C hepatitis were negative.[] The echocardiogram showed two mild mitral lesions, with an average LA-LV gradient of 10 mmHg and mild aortic stenosis.[]

  • Right Atrial Myxoma

    inferior vena cava.[] A transthoracic echocardiogram showed a moving mass in the RA (Figure 2 ) attached to the atrial septum, an increased RA, right ventricular volume overload, and a dilated[] Figure 1 A chest X-ray shows right atrial enlargement .

  • Secondary Cardiomyopathy

    To identify new prognostic indicators in idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and secondary cardiomyopathy. Serum concentrations of aminoterminal propeptides of type III procollagen and the 7S domain of type IV collagen (7S collagen)--which have recently been used as indicators of collagen matrix turnover in[…][]

  • Chronic Constrictive Pericarditis

    We here report a successful midterm outcome following combined off-pump radical pericardiectomy and coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) in a 65-year-old male patient who was suffering from chronic constrictive calcified tubercular pericarditis with coronary artery disease. Simultaneous off-pump CABG and radical[…][]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Left-sided heart failure The heart's pumping action moves oxygen-rich blood as it travels from the lungs to the left atrium, then on to the left ventricle, which pumps it to the rest of the body. The left ventricle supplies most of the heart's pumping power, so it's larger than the other chambers and essential for[…][]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    The authors present a case of carnitine transporter deficiency, which was unmasked after an episode of respiratory distress resistant to treatment with bronchodilators. Chest radiograph showed cardiomegaly; electrocardiogram showed left ventricular hypertrophy and echocardiography revealed dilated[…][]

  • Tricuspid Valve Disease

    In severe right heart obstruction (RHO), redistribution of cardiac output to the left ventricle (LV) is well tolerated by the fetal circulation. Although the same should be true of severely regurgitant tricuspid valve disease (rTVD) with reduced or no output from the right ventricle, affected fetuses more[…][]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Obesity is a growing problem around the world, and radiology departments frequently encounter difficulties related to large patient size. Diagnosis and management of suspected venous thromboembolism, in particular deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), are challenging even in some lean patients,[…][]
