227 Possible Causes for Echocardiogram showing Dilation of Inferior Vena Cava, Increased Area of Cardiac Dullness, Non Specific ST-T Changes

  • 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]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Electrocardiogram revealed sinus tachycardia and non-specific ST-T changes in the lateral leads.[doi.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]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    Because of the shortage of donor hearts, 16 (33%) of 48 patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy died awaiting transplantation. Determining factors that predict effective coronary revascularization and identifying patients who may benefit from revascularization is crucial. From 1984 to 1990, 207 ischemic cardiomyopathy[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Malignant Pericardial Effusion

    Cancer. 1991 Jul 15;68(2):259-63. Abstract Ten patients with malignant pericardial effusion were treated with intrapericardial injection of OK-432 (penicillin-treated and heat-treated lyophilized powder of the substrain of Streptococcus pyogenes A3). After intrapericardial insertion of a catheter, a maximal volume of[…][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]

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    EKG 1,4 low voltage QRS, tachycardia, electrical alternans, PR depression, non-specific ST-T wave changes CXR 1,4 increased cardiac silhouette as compared to previous (most[emdocs.net]

  • Acute Myocarditis

    (i) The ECG The ECG most commonly demonstrates a sinus tachycardia with or without non-specific ST segment and T wave changes.[rcemlearning.co.uk] Possible abnormalities: ST segment depression or elevation Atrioventricular or intraventricular block non-specific T wave changes Q-T prolongation P-R segment depression ECG[rcemlearning.co.uk] In contrast to ECG abnormalities in acute coronary syndromes, changes associated with myocarditis do not follow a coronary artery territorial distribution.[rcemlearning.co.uk]
