396 Possible Causes for Echocardiogram showing Dilation of Inferior Vena Cava, Impaired Exercise Tolerance, Increased Area of Cardiac Dullness

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    The impairment of exercise tolerance indicated by NYHA classification was markedly improved by PD for both groups.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Numerous mechanisms unrelated to hemodynamic dysfunction may underlie impaired exercise tolerance in patients with chronic heart failure.[doi.org] […] as tolerated and, for Pts with impaired renal function or psychogenic polydipsia, fluid restriction. 2. drug therapy with multiple agents–diuretics, ACE inhibitors, digoxin[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Cardiomyopathy can be acquired or inherited. “Acquired” means you aren’t born with the disease, but you develop it due to another disease, condition, or factor. “Inherited” means your parents passed the gene for the disease on to you. Researchers continue to look for the genetic links to cardiomyopathy and to[…][web.archive.org]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    The cardinal manifestations of HF are dyspnea and fatigue, which may limit exercise tolerance, and fluid retention, which may lead to pulmonary congestion and peripheral edema[doi.org] Definition of HF Heart failure is a complex clinical syndrome that can result from any structural or functional cardiac disorder that impairs the ability of the ventricle[doi.org] Both abnormalities can impair the functional capacity and quality of life of affected individuals, but they do not necessarily dominate the clinical picture at the same time[doi.org]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a severe cardiovascular disease which can lead to heart failure and sudden cardiac death (SCD). The typical feature of DCM is left ventricular enlargement or dilatation. In some conditions, DCM and arrhythmia can occur concurrently, apparently promoting the prevalence of SCD.[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary Cardiomyopathy

    Abstract Eleven patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy and eight patients with idiopathic congestive cardiomyopathy underwent extensive neuromuscular studies to determine if a skeletal myopathy is associated with uncomplicated primary cardiomyopathy. The clinical examination revealed peripheral[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    Herz. 2016 Sep;41(6):484-93. doi: 10.1007/s00059-016-4469-6. Author information 1 Herz- und Gefäßzentrum Marburg (HGZ) und Philipps Universität Marburg, Feldbergstr. 45, 35043, Marburg, Deutschland. bermaisch@gmail.com. Abstract The individual amount of alcohol consumed acutely or chronically decides on harm or[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Peripartum Cardiomyopathy

    Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is a form of dilated cardiomyopathy that is defined as a deterioration in cardiac function presenting typically between the last month of pregnancy and up to six months postpartum. As with other forms of dilated cardiomyopathy, PPCM involves systolic dysfunction of the heart with[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    Considerable amounts of pericardial fluid may muffle heart sounds, increase the area of cardiac dullness, and change the size and shape of the cardiac silhouette.[merckmanuals.com] Dyspnea and reduced exercise tolerance will be early signs, progressing to severe impaired cardiac output and death in severe cases (e.g. cardiac tamponade ).[radiopaedia.org] Regardless of volume, symptoms relate to impaired cardiac function due to intrapericardial pressure approximating intracardiac pressure leading to an impaired filling of low[radiopaedia.org]

  • Malignant Pericardial Effusion

    Dyspnea and reduced exercise tolerance will be early signs, progressing to severe impaired cardiac output and death in severe cases (e.g. cardiac tamponade ).[radiopaedia.org] Regardless of volume, symptoms relate to impaired cardiac function due to intrapericardial pressure approximating intracardiac pressure leading to an impaired filling of low[radiopaedia.org]

  • 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.[scielo.br] The echocardiogram showed two mild mitral lesions, with an average LA-LV gradient of 10 mmHg and mild aortic stenosis.[scielo.br]
