29 Possible Causes for Electrocardiogram Change, Limb Joint Contracture

  • Cor Pulmonale

    In both types, characteristic electrocardiogram changes occur, and in later stages there is usually right-sided cardiac failure. cor pulmonale (kôr′ po͝ol′mə-nä′lē, -năl′ē[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] joint contracture affecting gait[upload.umin.ac.jp] P-wave changes in obstructive and restrictive lung disease.

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    (ECG) changes, myopathic electromyogram (EMG) changes, and dystrophic change on muscle biopsy.[doi.org] There may be joint contractures, especially of the tendo-Achilles. The facial, ophthalmic and bulbar muscles are not involved.[orpha.net] […] weakness by five years and elevated serum creatine kinase (CK), together with two of the following minor criteria: muscle hypertrophy/lower limb contractures/toe walking, electrocardiogram[doi.org]

  • Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome

  • Autosomal Dominant Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy 2

    […] with early joint contractures.[mafiadoc.com] Reflexes were reduced in the upper limbs and absent in lower limbs. There were no joint contractures.[omicsonline.org] He had waddling gait, Gowers sign, and minimal joint contractures. Cardiac studies showed valvular insufficiency and atrioventricular block.[genome.jp]

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    An eye exam may show changes in the blood vessels in the back of the eye.[web.archive.org] In addition to gross motor weakness and delay, patients also exhibit muscle pseudohypertrophy especially of the calves, a waddling gait, scoliosis, joint contractures, and[radiopaedia.org] Tests that may be done include: Creatine kinase test (may be slightly high) DNA testing Electrocardiogram (ECG) EMG (electromyography) Fluorescein angiography Genetic testing[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Marfan Syndrome

    Other tests, such as a chest X-ray , an electrocardiogram ( ECG ), and an echocardiogram will be used to evaluate changes in the heart and blood vessels, and detect heart[webmd.com] (which he termed dolichostenomelia ), and congenital contractures of multiple joints.[web.archive.org] Other tests, such as a chest X-ray, an electrocardiogram ( ECG ), and an echocardiogram will be used to evaluate changes in the heart and blood vessels, and detect heart rhythm[webmd.com]

  • Eosinophilic Fasciitis

    Patients were monitored for heart rate, blood pressure, rhythm, symptoms, electrocardiogram changes, and rate of perceived exertion (on a 1 to 10 scale, with 10 indicating[kjim.org] contractures and limb length discrepancies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Those with arthritis, atrophy of muscle, scarring limiting joint range of motion (contracture), and shortening of limb length tend to do worse.[rxlist.com]

  • Shoulder-Hand Syndrome

    Her electrocardiogram (ECG) revealed a rate of 98, sinus rhythm, had a normal axis with no acute changes. Her blood tests were normal, including cardiac enzymes.[ispub.com] […] and weak muscles Stage 3 (irreversible changes can be seen) Limited movement in limb because of tightened muscles and tendons (contracture) Muscle wasting Pain in the entire[nlm.nih.gov] […] more sweaty Stage 2 (lasts 3 to 6 months): Continued changes in the skin Nails that are cracked and break more easily Pain that is becoming worse Slower hair growth Stiff joints[nlm.nih.gov]
