207 Possible Causes for Edema of Lower Extremity, Heart Murmur

  • Cardiomyopathy

    (Heart murmurs are extra or unusual sounds heard during a heartbeat.) Updated: June 22, 2016[] heart murmur.[] murmurs.[]

  • Hyponatremia

    Abstract Hyponatremia due to isolated adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) deficiency is difficult to diagnose as it is usually indistinguishable from non-endocrine syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (SIADH). We present a case secondary to empty sella. Most patients with empty sella remain[…][]

  • Aortic Valve Insufficiency

    The main sign of heart valve disease is an unusual heartbeat sound called a heart murmur. Your doctor can hear a heart murmur with a stethoscope.[] As the child gets older, abnormal signs and symptoms may appear, including fatigue, a heart murmur (an extra heart sound when a doctor listens with a stethoscope), or, rarely[] Mild aortic regurgitation causes no symptom other than a characteristic heart murmur that can be heard with a stethoscope each time the left ventricle relaxes.[]

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    The main sign of heart valve disease is an unusual heartbeat sound called a heart murmur. Your doctor can hear a heart murmur with a stethoscope.[] Two months later, he presented with a 40-pound weight gain, and had developed massive edema of the lower extremities.[] Diagnosis A leaky valve can be heard with a stethoscope; the sound is called a heart murmur.[]

  • Mitral Valve Stenosis

    In most cases, you can't prevent heart murmurs.[] Causes Common conditions can make your heart beat faster and lead to heart murmurs .[] Many times, a doctor will first notice your child has a heart murmur.[]

  • Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension

    extremities or stomach (edema) As the disease progresses, symptoms of light-headedness or exercise-related dizziness may occur.[] Signs of right heart failure, distended neck veins, oedema, ascites and acrocyanosis, may be evident late in the course of CTEPH [ 9 ].[] Stomach and lower extremity swelling may develop as your lung pressures increase, and the right ventricle — which pumps blood into the lungs — begins to weaken.[]

  • Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

    There is mild lower-extremity edema as well. An echocardiogram reveals a normal left ventricle, but the septum is D-shaped and the right ventricle (RV) is enlarged.[] The exam may find: Abnormal heart sounds Feeling of a pulse over the breastbone Heart murmur on the right side of the heart Larger-than-normal veins in the neck Leg swelling[] The murmur of tricuspid regurgitation increases in intensity and is best heard at the LLSB. It can also be heart at the RLSB.[]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Two weeks later, her shortness of breath, orthopnea, and lower extremity edema resolved and furosemide was discontinued.[] Listening for heart murmurs, indicating a problem with the heart valves. Possible tests These include: Blood tests , which are carried out to look for: Anaemia .[] Oxygen saturation is usually Assess for a gallop rhythm (3rd heart sound) and murmurs suggestive of valve stenosis or regurgitation.[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    A 4-L decrease in lower extremity edema volume was noted, but fatigue and shortness of breath increased markedly.[] The possibility of traumatic ventricular septal defect should be considered in all multiple-trauma patients who develop a new heart murmur, even when overt chest-wall injury[] On physical exam, he has jugular venous distension and pitting edema in the lower extremities. An echocardiogram shows an ejection fraction of 35%.[]

  • Heart Failure

    Objective evidence of a structural or functional abnormality of the heart at rest: cardiomegaly, third heart sound, cardiac murmurs, echocardiogram abnormalities, raised natriuretic[] ,” a rapid heart rate, and murmurs of the heart valves.[] There may be a gallop rhythm due to presence of S3 (see also the separate Heart Auscultation article) or murmurs of mitral or aortic valve disease.[]
