522 Possible Causes for Ejection Fraction Decreased

  • Heart Failure

    RESULTS The concentrations of galectin-3 and NT-proBNP were substantially higher following decreased ejection fraction (both P 0.000), except for sST2 (P 0.068 vs. control[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After the switch to sacubitril/valsartan, a 10% increase in left ventricular ejection fraction was observed (from 30 to 40%) over a 12-month period.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A normal ejection fraction is greater than 55%. Systolic heart failure is diagnosed when the ejection fraction has significantly decreased below the threshold of 55%.[emedicinehealth.com]

  • Angina Pectoris

    Echocardiography revealed no remarkable changes of ejection fraction; however, septal E/E' tended to decrease after treatments (11.6 4.8 versus 9.2 2.8, P 0.08).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] fraction 40% should be started on an ACEI unless contraindicated.[uspharmacist.com] Inhibition of vasoconstriction decreases both left ventricular preload and afterload. 2 ACEIs may also be used on lower-risk patients.[uspharmacist.com]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    Bedside echocardiography disclosed akinesis of the anterior and lateral walls, apex, and anterior septum with severely decreased left ventricular ejection fraction of 30%.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    After start of the GFD, abnormal left ventricular dimensions, and diminished cardiac function, including decreased ejection fraction, can improve markedly and may even be[dx.doi.org] Preservation of myocardial contractile function is paramount, and left venticular ejection fraction should be monitored with short-term and long-term echocardiographic evaluation[clinicaladvisor.com] Change in ejection fraction between baseline and follow-up in groups 1 to 3.[dx.doi.org]

  • Heart Valve Disease

    Patients should be referred for AVR when symptoms develop, LV dilatation is severe, or the ejection fraction decreases. 2, 29, 30 The management of patients with chronic severe[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Echocardiography is the most widely used diagnostic tool to assess LV dimensions, volumes, and ejection fraction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] As the disease progresses, the prominent initial forces decrease, but the total QRS amplitude increases. 1 Echocardiography.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Constrictive Pericarditis

    The LV ejection fraction may decrease postoperatively, only to return to normal months later. In the interim, digoxin, diuretics, and vasodilators may be useful.[circ.ahajournals.org]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy Type 2B

    Ideal for cardiologists who need to keep abreast of rapidly changing scientific foundations, clinical research results, and evidence-based medicine, Braunwald’s Heart Disease is your indispensable source for definitive, state-of-the-art answers on every aspect of contemporary cardiology, helping you apply the most[…][books.google.com]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    And when the heart isn't able to fill properly, even if it contracts, and has a normal ejection fraction, you're still going to have a decreased volume of blood exiting the[khanacademy.org] Ejection fraction may be preserved, diastolic volumes are normal or decreased, ventricular thickness is normal or increased and atrial dilatation is almost always present.[scielo.br]
