328 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[] edema in patients who in fact have cardiogenic edema.[] Systemic venous hypertension is manifested by jugular venous distention.[]

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    Physical Examination Findings on cardiovascular examination in patients with tricuspid regurgitation include the following: S 3 gallop Jugular venous distention with a prominent[] The physical examination may also reveal jaundice, peripheral edema, ascites, weak peripheral pulse, pulmonary rales, and an S3 or S4 gallop.[] The physical examination was significant for jugular venous distention, Grade II/VI holosystolic murmur at the left sternal border, and lower extremity 2 edema.[]

  • Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension

    Physical examination often reveals signs of right heart failure including jugular venous distention, hepatomegaly, ascites, and peripheral edema. 1 Bruits may be appreciated[] […] male with unexplained severe pulmonary arterial hypertension with a seven-day history of progressive shortness of breath, hemoptysis, chest discomfort and bilateral pedal edema[] RESULTS: Hospital mortality (15 vs. 2.5%), reperfusion pulmonary edema (33 vs. 14%) and heart failure (23 vs. 3.3%) were all higher in group 1; however, after one year of[]

  • Hypogammaglobulinemia

  • Hypereosinophilic Syndrome

    The patient deteriorated rapidly showing signs of respiratory difficulty and acute pulmonary edema, therefore chemotherapy was started without response, and finally the patient[] There was no history of shortness of breath, orthopnea, and pedal edema.[] 1 or more of the following: fibrosis (lung, heart, gastrointestinal tract, skin, or others); thrombosis with or without thromboembolism; cutaneous and mucosal erythema, edema[]

  • Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

    Another symptom that may raise suspicion of ALL is testicular edema in male patients that is not accompanied by pain.[] […] caused by the spread of "blast" cells to the surface of the bone or into the joint from the marrow cavity) Breathlessness Enlarged lymph nodes, liver and/or spleen Pitting edema[] This is a transient immune activation syndrome whose symptoms closely resemble systemic inflammation or sepsis (hypotension, pulmonary edema and respiratory failure, high[]

  • Hyponatremia

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

  • Cardiogenic Shock

    Head and Neck: Jugular venous distention may be evident due to the increased a cardiac compliance.[] Follow-up cMRI showed complete reversal of myocardial edema and hyperemia.[] venous distention and crackles in the lungs are usually (but not always) present; peripheral edema also may be present.[]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    Fluid retention may be present as edema, weight gain, or third place fluid collection. Pericardial effusion is rarely seen with docetaxel treatment.[] There was significant pulsus paradoxus of 20 mm Hg and obvious jugular venous distention. The pulmonary examination revealed bilateral vesicular breath sounds.[] CASE PRESENTATION: A 73-year-old Asian man who was a former tobacco smoker presented with progressive exertional dyspnea, systemic edema, and pericardial effusion.[]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Venous congestion in the systemic circulation results in jugular venous distention, hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, vascular congestion of the gastrointestinal tract, and peripheral[] A heart attack may cause pulmonary edema.[] venous distention S3 sound pulmonary exam shortness of breath rales liquid accumulates in alveoli due to left heart pressure overload alveoli pop open during inhalation,[]
