12 Possible Causes for Echocardiogram showing Dilation of Inferior Vena Cava, Pulsatile Liver

  • 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] Hepatojugular reflux and pulsatile liver are signs of RV failure with systemic venous congestion. In severe disease, ascites can also be present.[emedicine.medscape.com] Pallor, engorged, and pulsatile neck veins and central cyanosis were present on general physical examination.[ijem.in]

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    With severe TR, there may be an enlarged liver detected on palpation of the right upper quadrant of the abdomen; the liver may be pulsatile on palpation and even on inspection[en.wikipedia.org] The liver may be large and pulsatile. There is usually a single first heart sound that may be increased in intensity.[patient.info]

  • Pulmonary Edema

  • High Output Heart Failure

    Echocardiogram showed a dilated right ventricle with severe pulmonary hypertension and a non collapsing inferior vena cava (IVC).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There was no pulsatile mass nor abdominal murmur.[circ.ahajournals.org] Physical examination showed jugular venous distension, lung crecipitations, femoral bruit and pitting pedal edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Cor Pulmonale

In severe disease, ascites can also be present.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] by elevation in right atrial pressure and systemic venous hypertension leading to hepatic congestion, which combined with tricuspid regurgitation, leads to an enlarged, pulsatile[phaonlineuniv.org]

  • Tricuspid Valve Disease

    Hepatojugular reflux, pulsatile liver, and signs of hepatic dysfunction also may be present.[accesssurgery.mhmedical.com] The liver is tender and pulsatile.[symptoma.com] The liver may be large and pulsatile. There is usually a single first heart sound that may be increased in intensity.[patient.info]

  • Cardiac Amyloidosis

    liver and 1 bilateral lower extremity pitting edema.[cathlabdigest.com] Physical examination findings were consistent with fluid overload: jugular venous distention, decreased breath sounds at the right base up to the mid lung field, pulsatile[cathlabdigest.com]

  • Acute Myocarditis

    Physical exam will look like congestive heart failure, with jugular venous distention, pulmonary rales, peripheral edema, pulsatile liver, and perhaps a laterally displaced[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Tricuspid Valve Stenosis

    The liver may be large and pulsatile. There is usually a single first heart sound that may be increased in intensity.[patient.info]
