70 Possible Causes for Edema, Pulsus Alternans

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Peripheral edema: Edema develops in the feet in ambulatory patients and sacral edema in bed bound patients.[symptoma.com] alternans (alternating large and small pulse pressures) and a raised JVP.[patient.info] alternans Increased intensity of P 2 heart sound Hepatojugular reflux Ascites, hepatomegaly, and/or anasarca Central or peripheral cyanosis, pallor See Presentation for more[emedicine.com]

  • Heart Failure

    Major criteria: · Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea · Neck vein distention · Rales · Radiographic cardiomegaly (increasing heart size on chest radiography) · Acute pulmonary edema[web.archive.org] alternans (alternating large and small pulse pressures) and a raised JVP.[patient.info] Both systolic and diastolic heart failure can cause edema (fluid) to build up in the lungs and the rest of the body.[jama.ama-assn.org]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    DIAGNOSIS: The chest x-ray revealed pulmonary edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Multiple sclerosis is increasingly being recognized in association with cardiovascular dysfunction, which can manifest with cardiomyopathy, pulmonary edema (Kaplan et al.,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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

    We report a case of 14-year-old girl who presented with dyspnea, bipedal edema, loss of weight, and easy fatigability for three months.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pulsus alternans is an infrequent, complex pathophysiologic sign often associated with severe heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other findings which are of importance include: cyanosis, clubbing, jugular venous distension, pulmonary edema, S 3 gallop, enlarged liver and peripheral edema.[symptoma.com]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Pulmonary edema from different causes can either present acutely or chronically.[symptoma.com] (FPE), is rapid onset pulmonary edema.[en.wikipedia.org] Show full item record Title: Pulmonary edema of scuba divers Author: Hampson, NB ; Dunford, RG Abstract: A syndrome of acute pulmonary edema has been previously reported among[archive.rubicon-foundation.org]

  • Acute Myocarditis

    Among many cardiac imaging techniques, only cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) and computer tomography permit a direct detection of edema during acute myocarditis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: The purpose of the present study was to investigate the diagnostic value of T2-mapping in acute myocarditis (ACM) and to define cut-off values for edema detection[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract To quantify myocardial edema by using a T2 relaxometry approach with a dual-contrast turbo spin-echo (dcTSE) sequence in patients with acute myocarditis regarding[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    […] in the lower extremities Rapid weight gain A common symptom of non-ischemic cardiomyopathy is edema in the lower extremities.[study.com] Gross edema and ascites occur much later, undoubtedly owing to the convergence of a number of factors.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms may include: Shortness of breath Swelling of the legs and feet ( edema ) Fatigue (feeling overly tired), inability to exercise, or carry out activities as usual Angina[my.clevelandclinic.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] Leg elevation promptly reversed the pulsus alternans, and the echocardiographic abnormality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Also observed were interstitial edema, an enlarged cardiomyocyte-capillary space, thinning of the capillary walls, flattening of the endothelium and a plethora and aggregation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
