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

  • Cardiomyopathy

    venous distention, systemic hypotension, peripheral vascular disease Laboratory findings Hyponatremia, persistently elevated B-type natriuretic peptide and A-type natriuretic[] DIAGNOSIS: The chest x-ray revealed pulmonary edema.[] 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[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

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

  • 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.[]

  • Pericardial Effusion

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

  • Glomerulonephritis

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

  • 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.[] Marked edema of the colonic stoma was observed in two cases with severe PH, with ulceration of the mucosa observed in one case.[] […] 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[]

  • Tricuspid Stenosis

    venous distention - Peripheral edema without pulmonary congestion - peripheral edema - Hepatomegaly - Jugular venous distention - ascites - cyanosis - fatigue - Sounds like[] […] 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[] Jugular venous distention may occur, increasing with inspiration (Kussmaul sign).[]

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    Jugular venous distention may occur; severe TR may cause abdominal distension, hepatic enlargement, and peripheral edema.[] The physical examination may also reveal jaundice, peripheral edema, ascites, weak peripheral pulse, pulmonary rales, and an S3 or S4 gallop.[] 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.[]

  • 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[] Postpartum complications included pulmonary edema as well as peripartum heart failure and pulmonary thromboembolism 4 weeks postpartum.[] Ascites and edema and hepatomegaly (if right-side heart failure develops)Fatigue and weakness increase with exercise and pregnancy.[]
