29 Possible Causes for Electrical Alternans, Hepatomegaly, Tuberculous Pericarditis

  • Pericardial Effusion

    Radiologic examinations were carried out, and the computed tomography scan revealed a hepatomegaly and a chest X-ray showed evidence of a unilateral pleural effusion.[] […] pericardial effusion produces a triad of: Low QRS voltage Tachycardia Electrical alternans ECG findings with Electrical alternans Electrical alternans occurs when consecutive[] Abstract Diagnosis of tuberculous pericarditis remains a challenge.[]

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    Other signs of cardiac tamponade includes dyspnea, tachypnea, hepatomegaly, paradoxical pulses, and dysphoria.[] Electrical alternans – i.e the beat-to-beat variation i electrical amplitude – is the ECG hallmark of cardiac tamponade.[] All patients had low CD4 cell count (range: 17-239 cells/mm3) and 50% of patients were treated for tuberculous pericarditis prior to making the correct diagnosis of Nocardia[]

  • Pericarditis

    He had leg oedema, hepatomegaly, jugular venous distension, and bilateral pleural effusion on chest radiography.[] In cardiac tamponade, the ECG shows electrical alternans as the heart “floats” in relation to the recording leads.[] However, it takes a period of time from tuberculous pericarditis to constrictive pericarditis.[]

  • Constrictive Pericarditis

    Examination revealed raised jugular venous pressure (JVP), pitting pedal oedema, muffled heart sounds, bilateral pleural effusion and hepatomegaly.[] Abnormal findings on ECG include tachycardia, electrical alternans ( Figure 9 ), low voltage, and may include changes associated with acute pericarditis ( Figure 6 ).[] After a pericardiectomy done to restore cardiac compensation and to identify etiological factors, a tuberculous pericarditis (TBP) was diagnosed.[]

  • Chronic Constrictive Pericarditis

    On physical examination they had tachycardia, jaundice, cachexia, elevated jugular venous pressure, hepatomegaly and ascites.[] In cardiac tamponade, the ECG shows electrical alternans as the heart “floats” in relation to the recording leads.[] Two of these cases were initially treated as tuberculous pericarditis.[]

  • Pericardial Calcification

    Most impressive physical findings are often the insidious development of ascites or hepatomegaly and ascites; such patients are often mistakenly thought to suffer from hepatic[] alternans ECHO – diagnostic, echo-free zone around the heart, diastolic collapse of RA&RV Management : Seek expert help Urgent drainage Send fluid for culture, ZN stain/TB[] Jugular veins are prominent, hepatomegaly, ascites and edema are noted.[]

  • Pericardial Disorder

    Additionally, there may be pulsatile hepatomegaly (in as many as 70% of patients), reduced apical impulse and a pericardial 'knock' (early diastolic sound).[] C, Beat-to-beat variations in amplitude and contour of the QRS and ST-T complexes that characterize electrical alternans.[] A Acute pericarditis C Cardiac tamponade Constrictive pericarditis H Hemopericardium M Myopericarditis P Pericardial effusion Pericarditis Pneumopericardium T Tuberculous[]

  • Radiation Pericarditis

    This includes a pericardial knock Pericardial rub (heard best while leaning forwards) and distant heart sounds Abdomen Hepatomegaly Ascites Extremities Ankle edema Electrocardiogram[] In cardiac tamponade, the ECG shows electrical alternans as the heart “floats” in relation to the recording leads.[] Tuberculous pericarditis: a case report.[]

  • Suppurative Pericarditis

    Early complaints of constrictive pericarditis are shortness of breath on exertion, recurrent chest pain and or symptoms of right-sided heart failure with venous congestion, hepatomegaly[] Electrical alternans. 3.
