19 Possible Causes for Increased Area of Cardiac Dullness, Left Ventricular Hypertrophy, S3 Gallop

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Biatrial enlargement Left ventricular hypertrophy or biventricular enlargement Left bundle branch block ( RBBB can also occur). Left axis deviation.[lifeinthefastlane.com] gallop is common in children but signifies decompensated CHF in adults; S4 is frequently heard Jugular venous pulse revealing a prominent a wave Double carotid arterial pulse[emedicine.medscape.com] Other possible physical findings include an S3 gallop and a systolic murmur of mitral regurgitation if the valve annulus is dilated.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Chest radiograph showed cardiomegaly; electrocardiogram showed left ventricular hypertrophy and echocardiography revealed dilated cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He was tachycardic, with an S3/S4 gallop rhythm. There were moist rales in the lung fields and chest wall retraction. The abdominal exam revealed hepatomegaly.[revportcardiol.org] Biatrial enlargement Left ventricular hypertrophy or biventricular enlargement Left bundle branch block ( RBBB can also occur). Left axis deviation.[lifeinthefastlane.com]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    Left ventricular muscle cell hypertrophy was accomplished through a 16% and 51% increase in myocyte diameter and length, whereas right ventricular myocyte hypertrophy was[doi.org] Myocyte loss, which accounted for 28% and 30% in the left and right ventricles, was responsible for the difference in the assessment of myocyte hypertrophy at the ventricular[doi.org] Left ventricular hypertrophy evaluated as a change in organ weight, aggregate myocyte mass, and myocyte cell volume per nucleus showed increases of 85%, 47%, and 103%, respectively[doi.org]

  • Primary Cardiomyopathy

    Hypertrophy of more than one region of left ventricular wall and at times of right ventricular wall is also seen.[intechopen.com] ECG will show left ventricular hypertrophy.[aafp.org] Echocardiography shows bilateral atrial enlargement with normal ventricular size but significant diffuse left ventricular hypertrophy, especially with amyloidosis.[emedicine.medscape.com]

Her extremities were nonedematous, and she had no calf tenderness.[thepermanentejournal.org] No valvular disease or left ventricular hypertrophy was detected.[bjcardio.co.uk]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

  • Large Ventricular Septal Defect

    ECG of ventricular septal defect ECG may be normal or ECG may show hypertrophy of the right, left or both ventricles.[remedyland.com] ECG: Left ventricular hypertrophy demonstrated by tall R in V5, V6.[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu] With a moderate VSD, left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and occasionally left atrial hypertrophy (LAH) may be seen.[patient.info]
