872 Possible Causes for Incomplete Right Bundle Branch Block, Increased Area of Cardiac Dullness, Pleural Effusion on Chest X-Ray

  • Cardiomyopathy

    In patients with congestive heart failure, chest x-ray will show signs of congestion, an enlarged cardiac silhouette and possibly pleural effusions ( Figure 3 ).[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Generalized enlargement of the heart is seen upon normal chest X-ray. Pleural effusion may also be noticed, which is due to pulmonary venous hypertension.[en.wikipedia.org] Chest x-ray shows cardiomegaly, usually of all chambers.[merckmanuals.com] Pleural effusion, particularly on the right, often accompanies increased pulmonary venous pressure and interstitial edema.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    Blood tests will show signs of liver injury and confirm alcohol abuse, while chest X-ray shows pulmonary congestion, cardiomegaly and pleural effusions.[radcliffecardiology.com]

  • Peripartum Cardiomyopathy

    Chest X-ray showed pulmonary interstitial edema, an increase in the cardiac silhouette and bilateral pleural effusion.[signavitae.com] Chest X-ray can show cardiomegaly, pulmonary congestion, and pleural effusion.[kjim.org] Chest X-ray can be done only after delivery, and it can reveal cardiomegaly, pleural effusion, and pulmonary congestion, while MRI can be used to distinguish myocarditis and[frontiersin.org]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    He still experienced pleural effusion and had symptoms of cough and shortness of breath. Chest X-ray demonstrated bilateral pleural effusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Among these, ECG changes including sinus tachycardia, new-onset atrial arrhythmias, new right bundle-branch block (complete or incomplete), Qr pattern in V1, S1Q3T3 pattern[circ.ahajournals.org] […] and complete right bundle branch block [RBBB], and T-wave inversion in leads V1-V4, plus ST elevation in lead aVR and atrial fibrillation suggestive of RV strain from acute[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    The daily dosage was adjusted on the basis of the patient's clinical response and her follow-up chest x-ray studies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Testing may include a chest x-ray to look for cardiomegaly (an enlarged heart), pulmonary edema (fluid in the lungs), or pleural effusion (collection of fluid around the lungs[dx.doi.org] After 8 months of treatment, her symptoms improved and the pleural effusion showed significant regression.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Endocardial Cushion Defect

    We describe one case of endocardial cushion defect during the second trimester when a consultative fetal echocardiography was undertaken for fetal intrauterine growth retardation with oligohydramnios. Positive cytomegalovirus IgM in cord blood and cytomegalovirus DNA particles in the amniotic fluid were found[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Considerable amounts of pericardial fluid may muffle heart sounds, increase the area of cardiac dullness, and change the size and shape of the cardiac silhouette.[merckmanuals.com] Figure 1 The patient's admission chest x-ray demonstrating an enlarged cardiac silhouette, evidence of bilateral pleural effusions, more prominent on the left hemithorax,[wjso.biomedcentral.com]

  • Pericardial Cyst

    These cysts frequently occur in the right cardiophrenic angle and their diagnosis is usually suspected after an abnormal chest X-ray is obtained.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The electrocardiography detected sinus tachycardia of 104 beats per minutes, right axis deviation, an incomplete right bundle-branch block and no conduction disturbances.[panafrican-med-journal.com] The electrocardiography detected right axis deviation and incomplete right bundle-branch block.[interventional-cardiology.imedpub.com]
