21 Possible Causes for Increased Area of Cardiac Dullness, Mitral Valve Insufficiency

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Secondary changes in valve function, particularly the severity of mitral and tricuspid valve insufficiency, should be determined.[] valve repair or mitral valve surgery for functional mitral insufficiency is of uncertain benefit and should only be considered after careful candidate selection and with[] Nitroprusside is potentially of value in severely congested patients with hypertension or severe mitral valve regurgitation complicating LV dysfunction.[]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    BACKGROUND: Coronary artery fistula, first described by Krause in 1865, is an abnormal communication between the coronary artery and one of the four chambers of the heart or one of the great vessels. The communications are often congenital but may also be acquired from trauma or invasive cardiovascular[…][]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    […] and tricuspid valve insufficiency Complications Conduction defects–eg atrial & ventricular tachyarrhythmias and fibrillation Management Supportive–eg rest, weight control[] The valve leaflets become leaky, resulting in mitral regurgitation (or mitral insufficiency) whereby the blood moves backward from the left ventricle to the left atrium, rather[] […] cocaine, antiretroviral agents, lead, cobalt, ethanol, phenothiazines insults; 20% of DCs, there is a familial component Prognosis Often progresses to CHF accompanied by mitral[]

  • Endocardial Cushion Defect

  • Rheumatic Fever

    She developed a mitral valve insufficiency and pericarditis on the tenth day of admission.[] Endocarditis is manifested as mitral and aortic valve insufficiency.[] Because of mitral insufficiency, pulmonary pressure increased and it was nearby 70% systemic pressure.[]

  • Primary Cardiomyopathy

    Abstract Eleven patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy and eight patients with idiopathic congestive cardiomyopathy underwent extensive neuromuscular studies to determine if a skeletal myopathy is associated with uncomplicated primary cardiomyopathy. The clinical examination revealed peripheral[…][]

  • Endocardial Fibroelastosis

    Surgical treatment of mitral insufficiency and aortic valve stenosis associated with endocardial fibroelastosis has not been well documented.[] We treated 2 infants with this complex lesion: in one case it was possible to repair the mitral valve.[]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    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.[] valve disorders I34.0 Nonrheumatic mitral (valve) insufficiency I34.1 Nonrheumatic mitral (valve) prolapse Reimbursement claims with a date of service on or after October[] […] classified elsewhere I33 Acute and subacute endocarditis I33.0 Acute and subacute infective endocarditis I33.9 Acute and subacute endocarditis, unspecified I34 Nonrheumatic mitral[]
