168 Possible Causes for Edema, Jugular Venous Distention, Right-Sided Heart Failure

  • Heart Failure

    This reflects an increase in right atrial pressure and, therefore, right-sided 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[] A 35-year-old woman with fever, edema and rash was admitted. Pleural effusion and cardiomegaly were observed.[]

  • Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension

    Elevated BP in the lungs gradually overloads the right ventricle and causes right-sided heart failure.[] 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[]

  • Chronic Constrictive Pericarditis

    Our patient had right side heart failure and a typical cardiac CT calcification.[] Constriction should be considered in the presence of otherwise unexplained jugular venous distention, pleural effusion, hepatomegaly, or ascites.[] Physical Examination Findings Increased ventricular filling pressures cause jugular venous distention and Kussmaul's sign (paradoxical rise in jugular venous pressure on inspiration[]

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    Tricuspid valve regurgitation can also occur with heart conditions that affect the left side of the heart, such as left-sided heart failure that leads to right-sided heart[] The physical examination was significant for jugular venous distention, Grade II/VI holosystolic murmur at the left sternal border, and lower extremity 2 edema.[] The physical examination may also reveal jaundice, peripheral edema, ascites, weak peripheral pulse, pulmonary rales, and an S3 or S4 gallop.[]

  • Tricuspid Valve Stenosis

    Both conditions can produce the symptoms of right-sided heart failure, including discomfort in the upper abdomen because of an enlarged liver, fatigue and swelling.[] 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[]

  • Anasarca

    ( cirrhosis of the liver), renal failure /disease, right-sided heart failure, as well as severe malnutrition/protein deficiency.[] venous distention (JVD) on the side of the neck or decreased cardiac output (CO) as the heart fails to pump sufficient blood to cater the needs of the entire body.[] Generalized or limb edema is an uncommon manifestation of dermatomyositis.[]

  • Systemic Scleroderma

    This can be progressive, and can lead to right-sided heart failure .[] venous distention edema hepatomegaly renal hypertension Imaging Computerized tomography (CT) scan indications to evaluate pulmonary involvement view chest findings ground-glass[] Skin edema occurs, manifesting in swollen, pruritic hands and digits. 14 Over time, the skin hardens and thickens over the digits, extremities, face, and trunk—all resulting[]

  • Cardiac Cirrhosis

    Liver CASE NUMBER 136 Added November 13, 2009 Diagnosis Cardiac Cirrhosis Secondary Right Sided Heart Failure and Huge Pericardial Effusion.[] Peripheral edema and jugular venous distention are common findings in right side heart failure. Jaundice is not commonly reported.[] Edema Edema typically occurs in the lower extremities and dependent regions, which may progress to anasarca in cases of advanced and untreated heart failure.[]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    This is the case of a patient who presented with severe right-sided heart failure due to diastolic dysfunction that caused a dilemma of differential diagnosis between restrictive[] On admission, jugular venous distention to the angle of the jaw, bilateral basilar rales and trace peripheral edema.[] A 75-year-old man was admitted for evaluation of marked edema and jaundice. Serum total bilirubin was elevated above 20 mg/dl.[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Right atrial myxoma presenting as a right-sided heart failure is very rare.[] Physical examination reveals an S3 gallop, 2 peripheral pitting edema, and marked jugular venous distention.[] Peripheral edema: Edema develops in the feet in ambulatory patients and sacral edema in bed bound patients.[]
