62 Possible Causes for Edema, Left Ventricular Hypertrophy, Pulsus Alternans

  • Cardiomyopathy

    DIAGNOSIS: The chest x-ray revealed pulmonary edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Biatrial enlargement Left ventricular hypertrophy or biventricular enlargement Left bundle branch block ( RBBB can also occur). Left axis deviation.[lifeinthefastlane.com] CASE PRESENTATION: A 55-year-old woman presented with frank pulmonary edema and received a diagnosis of noncompaction cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Other findings which are of importance include: cyanosis, clubbing, jugular venous distension, pulmonary edema, S 3 gallop, enlarged liver and peripheral edema.[symptoma.com] Pulsus alternans is an infrequent, complex pathophysiologic sign often associated with severe heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chest radiograph showed cardiomegaly; electrocardiogram showed left ventricular hypertrophy and echocardiography revealed dilated cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    […] in the lower extremities Rapid weight gain A common symptom of non-ischemic cardiomyopathy is edema in the lower extremities.[study.com] Left ventricular muscle cell hypertrophy was accomplished through a 16% and 51% increase in myocyte diameter and length, whereas right ventricular myocyte hypertrophy was[doi.org] Signs include congestive heart failure, angina edema, weight gain and fainting, among others.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    We describe a patient with pancytopenia, jaundice, and diffuse edema after a distal splenorenal shunt. His shunt was angiographically proved patent.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ST segment and T wave abnormalities, left ventricular hypertrophy, biatrial enlargement, left atrial enlargement, premature ventricular contractions, prolonged PR interval[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Leg elevation promptly reversed the pulsus alternans, and the echocardiographic abnormality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary Cardiomyopathy

    Symptoms of heart failure may include shortness of breath, fatigue, cough, orthopnea, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea, and edema.[aafp.org] Hypertrophy of more than one region of left ventricular wall and at times of right ventricular wall is also seen.[intechopen.com] […] pseudoaneurysm仮[性]心室瘤、仮性動脈瘤、偽[性]動脈瘤 pulmonary arteriostenosis 肺動脈狭窄症 pulmonary artery (PA) 肺動脈 pulmonary artery wedge pressure肺動脈毛細[血]管圧 pulmonary congestion肺うっ血 pulmonary edema[tokyo-med.ac.jp]

  • Secondary Cardiomyopathy

    Chest X-ray (Figure 1 ) showed bilateral patchy opacities representing pulmonary edema or possible hemorrhage.[bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com] ECG will show left ventricular hypertrophy.[aafp.org] There was no lower-extremity edema. The patient’s skin was dry and hot. Serum for investigations and blood cultures were obtained.[radcliffecardiology.com]

  • Rheumatic Heart Disease

    We report a case of a young female who developed flash pulmonary edema during parturition and was found to have abnormal rheumatic involvement of her aortic, mitral, and tricuspid[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] But stenosis combined with incompetence and left ventricular hypertrophy are poor prognostic factors in aortic valve disease.[symptoma.com] The patient finally died due to heart failure and acute pulmonary edema. Long standing RHD can lead to secondary AA amyloidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heart Failure

    edema in patients who in fact have cardiogenic edema.[emedicine.com] Echocardiography revealed diffuse left ventricular hypertrophy with normal ventricular cavity size, severe diastolic dysfunction, and sparkling and granular texture of the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] alternans (alternating large and small pulse pressures) and a raised JVP.[patient.info]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Peripheral edema: Edema develops in the feet in ambulatory patients and sacral edema in bed bound patients.[symptoma.com] Transthoracic echocardiographic examination showed bilateral atrial enlargement, left ventricular hypertrophy, anteroseptal hypokinesia and akinesia, and moderate mitral and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] alternans (alternating large and small pulse pressures) and a raised JVP.[patient.info]
