47 Possible Causes for Heart Disease, Narrow Hands, Peripheral Pulse Decreased

  • Coronary Atherosclerosis

    Peripheral artery disease where narrowing of the arteries affects the legs, feet, arms, and hands—typically predicts CAD.[uihc.org] Lipoprotein(a) and coronary heart disease risk: a nested case-control study of the Helsinki heart study participants. Atherosclerosis. 1991 ; 89 :59–67.[doi.org] The images show the diameter of the coronary arteries and any blockages narrowing them. Coronary angiography is an invasive test.[emedicinehealth.com]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    As the narrowing becomes more severe, however, they may develop fatigue, shortness of breath, palpitations (sense of racing heart beat), fainting, or chest pain during sports[merckmanuals.com] The heart failure derived from AS and ischemic heart disease with severely compromised LV function.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract The patient was an 80-year-old man with low cardiac output syndrome associated with triple-vessel ischemic heart disease and severe aortic stenosis (AS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Arteriosclerosis

    , carotid artery bruits, and focal neurologic deficits Peripheral vascular disease: Decreased peripheral pulses, peripheral arterial bruits, pallor, peripheral cyanosis, gangrene[emedicine.com] If they show white spots, it could indicate that your leg arteries are narrowed down and not enough blood can reach your feet.[manataka.org] Arteriosclerotic heart disease (ASHD), also called coronary artery disease (CAD) or coronary heart disease (CHD), refers to arteriosclerosis of heart or coronary arteries.[healthsupplementsnutritionalguide.com]

  • Coarctation of the Aorta

    Coarctation of the aorta refers to a condition where there is a tightness (or narrowing) in the aorta.[gosh.nhs.uk] disease (CHD) and acquired heart disease in pediatric patients.[doi.org] On the other hand, if there is more extensive narrowing, a larger portion of the aorta is opened up or sometimes the aorta is patched, typically with a native blood vessel[cardiothoracicsurgery.wustl.edu]

  • Hypotension

    On the other hand, a dilated artery wall exerts reduced resistance, which results in low blood pressure.[healthy-ojas.com] Certain medical conditions can raise your risk for orthostatic hypotension, including:Heart conditions, such as heart attack, heart valve disease, bradycardia (a very low[sharecare.com] On the other hand, when veins narrow, less blood is stored in the veins, more blood returns to the heart for pumping into the arteries, and blood pressure is higher.[medicinenet.com]

  • Cold Exposure

    […] blood flow is reduced and due to lactic acid and CO2 buildup in the muscles Skin is pale Pupils dilate Pulse rate decreases at 90 degrees the body tries to move into hibernation[princeton.edu] Nicotine (from tobacco) and caffeine cause narrowing of the blood vessels in the hands and feet.[healthlinkbc.ca] Cold weather can also put a strain on your heart. People with heart disease might have chest pain and discomfort. Early signs of hypothermia include getting the shivers.[webmd.com]

  • Raynaud's Disease

    When you are cold or stressed, the arteries in your extremities (fingers, hands, feet, toes) narrow, or constrict.[intermountainhealthcare.org] There’s no known link between Raynaud’s and heart disease.[bhf.org.uk] Raynaud's (say "ray-NOHZ") phenomenon is a problem when the blood vessels in the hands and feet are extra sensitive and become more narrow than normal.[stanfordhealthcare.org]

  • Raynaud Phenomenon

    Raynaud's (say "ray-NOHZ") phenomenon is a problem when the blood vessels in the hands and feet are extra sensitive and become more narrow than normal.[stanfordhealthcare.org] However, many drugs that are approved for high blood pressure or chest pain caused by coronary heart disease are used by doctors to treat Raynaud’s phenomenon, and appear[arthritis.org] His family history was significant for ischemic heart disease at a young age ( 55 years old) in multiple members of his father's family.[ped-rheum.biomedcentral.com]

  • Hypertension

    Hypertension is also associated with decreased peripheral venous compliance which may increase venous return, increase cardiac preload and, ultimately, cause diastolic dysfunction[en.wikipedia.org] In arterioles, on the other hand, decreases in the density of blood vessels (rarefaction) and in vasomotion amplitude may play a more important role than reductions in lumen[doi.org] Excess sodium can increase your blood pressure and your risk for a heart disease and stroke.[cdc.gov]

  • Vasculitis

    Classically, children present with claudication, absent peripheral pulses, blood pressure abnormalities, strokes, and features of internal organ ischemia.[emedicine.medscape.com] Buerger's disease In Buerger’s disease (BGD), or thromboangiitis obliterans, small blood vessels in the hands and feet become inflamed and narrowed.[rush.edu] A few patients with the rare combination of HUV, Jaccoud's arthropathy and valvular heart disease have also been reported.[orpha.net]
