  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    These may generally include: Peripheral edema Fatigue and weakness Hepatomegaly (congestive) Ascites Dyspnea upon exertion, orthopnea, and paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea Decreased[symptoma.com] Right heart failure leads to ascites, hepatosplenomegaly, pulsatile liver, peripheral edema and pleural overflow.

    Eighteen consecutive patients with ES and exertional dyspnea according to the World Health Organization functional class III or IV were prospectively recruited.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A third heart sound as well as hepatosplenomegaly or a pulsatile liver occur with right heart failure. 4.2.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical manifestations include exertional dyspnea, fatigue, lethargy, central cyanosis, chest pain, palpitations, atrial and ventricular arrhythmias.[orpha.net]

  • Ebstein Malformation

    Adult life: Ebstein anomaly presents with fatigue, exertional dyspnea, cyanosis, tricuspid regurgitation and/or right heart failure, and palpitations; arrhythmias are common[emedicine.medscape.com] The symptoms of right heart failure like pulsatile liver, ascites, raised jugular venous pulse are all seen in the patients.[symptoma.com] Pulsatile liver, raised jugular venous pressure, oedema over ankles and legs, dyspnea are common findings in the patient.[symptoma.com]

  • Pulmonary Hypertension

    A 58-year-old woman was referred to our hospital with a chief complaint of exertional dyspnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The signs of right ventricular failure include a high-pitched systolic murmur of tricuspid regurgitation, hepatomegaly, a pulsatile liver, ascites, and peripheral edema.[emedicine.medscape.com] Common presenting features are exertional dyspnea, lethargy, fatigue, exertional syncope and chest pain, peripheral edema, anorexia and right upper quadrant pain.[symptoma.com]

  • Cardiac Amyloidosis

    Patients generally present with exertional dyspnea, chest discomfort, or congestive heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] liver and 1 bilateral lower extremity pitting edema.[cathlabdigest.com] A 63-year-old woman with exertional dyspnea was suspected of having CA based on her echocardiographic and electrocardiographic findings.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Atrial Myxoma

    Less frequently, obstruction of the tricuspid valve occurs, resulting in exertional dyspnea, syncope, or sudden death.[nigeriamedj.com] Hepatomegaly was present, with the pulsatile liver palpated 6 cm below the right coastal margin, there was ascites and bowel sounds were present and normoactive.[pulsus.com] Two years later, she returned complaining of episodic chest tightness precipitated by anxiety as well as increased dyspnea upon exertion.[ijcasereportsandimages.com]

  • Heart Valve Disease

    Patients with chronic AR are asymptomatic for years but eventually develop exertional dyspnea, orthopnea, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea, and palpitations.[symptoma.com] liver Prominent V waves and rapid y descents in jugular venous pressure [18] Inspiratory third heart sound at left lower sternal border (LLSB) [18] Blowing holosystolic murmur[en.wikipedia.org] Symptoms include shortness of breath during exertion (exertional dyspnea), heart-related chest pain (angina pectoris) and fainting spells (syncope).[drugs.com]
