350 Possible Causes for Edema, Jugular Venous Distention

  • Heart Failure

    Proper evaluation of the patient’s history as well as physical checks for signs of congestion such as jugular venous distention can bring about the underlying cardiac abnormality[symptoma.com] edema in patients who in fact have cardiogenic edema.[emedicine.com] Systemic venous hypertension is manifested by jugular venous distention.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    venous distention, systemic hypotension, peripheral vascular disease Laboratory findings Hyponatremia, persistently elevated B-type natriuretic peptide and A-type natriuretic[clevelandclinicmeded.com] DIAGNOSIS: The chest x-ray revealed pulmonary edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Classical symptoms of congestive heart failure and physical findings of tachycardia, tachypnea, rales in the lung bases and jugular venous distention make a diagnosis of cardiomyopathy[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    Other Causes of Peripheral Edema : Liver disease, varicose veins, and cyclic edema, none of which results in jugular venous distention.[accessmedicine.mhmedical.com] Findings include peripheral edema, neck vein distention, hepatomegaly, and a parasternal lift. Diagnosis is clinical and by echocardiography.[merckmanuals.com] The presence of peripheral edema in cor pulmonale is almost invariably associated with hypercapnia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyponatremia

    Signs of hypervolaemia - pulmonary rales, S3 gallop (third heart sound), jugular venous distention, peripheral oedema, ascites.[patient.info] The brain’s adaptive response to protect itself from edema occurs over several days.[emedicine.medscape.com] She never regained consciousness and died of severe cerebral edema less than 24 hours later.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    There was significant pulsus paradoxus of 20 mm Hg and obvious jugular venous distention. The pulmonary examination revealed bilateral vesicular breath sounds.[aafp.org] Fluid retention may be present as edema, weight gain, or third place fluid collection. Pericardial effusion is rarely seen with docetaxel treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Signs Classic triad of pericardial tamponade: hypotension, muffled heart sounds, jugular venous distention.[patient.info]

  • Glomerulonephritis

    Glomerulonephritis is suspected initially by its symptoms of hematuria, proteinuria, and facial or pedal edema.[symptoma.com] This results in edema, as the oncotic pressure in tissue remains the same.[en.wikipedia.org] Abstract A 77-year-old man presented with a fever, non-productive cough, and edema formation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Hypertension

    Diuretics are indicated to manage RV volume overload, which is commonly manifest as elevated jugular venous pressure, lower extremity edema, and abdominal distention.[doi.org] Marked edema of the colonic stoma was observed in two cases with severe PH, with ulceration of the mucosa observed in one case.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] old child, previously in good health, admitted to the hospital with severe respiratory symptoms, rapid worsening of clinical conditions, O2 desaturation and palmo-plantar edema[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tricuspid Stenosis

    venous distention - Peripheral edema without pulmonary congestion - peripheral edema - Hepatomegaly - Jugular venous distention - ascites - cyanosis - fatigue - Sounds like[quizlet.com] […] with the following symptoms: Fatigue Dyspnea Abdominal discomfort and ascites, due to systemic venous congestion Pulsations felt by the patient at the neck area Peripheral edema[symptoma.com] Jugular venous distention may occur, increasing with inspiration (Kussmaul sign).[merckmanuals.com]

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    Jugular venous distention may occur; severe TR may cause abdominal distension, hepatic enlargement, and peripheral edema.[merckmanuals.com] The physical examination may also reveal jaundice, peripheral edema, ascites, weak peripheral pulse, pulmonary rales, and an S3 or S4 gallop.[symptoma.com] It is now 2 years since his tricuspid valve replacement and he remains clinically free of ascites and peripheral edema with a normal serum albumin level.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mitral Valve Stenosis

    An RV impulse (heave) palpable at the left sternal border may accompany jugular venous distention when pulmonary hypertension is present and RV diastolic dysfunction develops[web.archive.org] Postpartum complications included pulmonary edema as well as peripartum heart failure and pulmonary thromboembolism 4 weeks postpartum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ascites and edema and hepatomegaly (if right-side heart failure develops)Fatigue and weakness increase with exercise and pregnancy.[en.wikipedia.org]
