14 Possible Causes for Increased Area of Cardiac Dullness, Non Specific ST-T Changes

  • 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

    Electrocardiogram revealed sinus tachycardia and non-specific ST-T changes in the lateral leads.[]

  • 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.[]

  • Suppurative Pericarditis

    Patients with large pericardial effusions have an area of increased dullness at the base of the heart in addition to generalized enlargement of the area of cardiac dullness[] ST-T changes in association with pericardial effusion Renal failure associated with severe kidney infection Autoimmune disease Medication When You Suffer Pericarditis During[] Increased area of cardiac dullness to percussion. Normally, cardiac dullness extends laterally to the apical impulse in the fifth intercostal space.[]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    Abstract BACKGROUND Ischemic cardiomyopathy is characterized by myocyte loss, reactive cellular hypertrophy, and ventricular scarring. However, the relative contribution of these tissue and cellular processes to late failure remains to be determined. METHODS AND RESULTS Ten hearts were obtained from individuals[…][]

  • Malignant Pericardial Effusion

    Malignant pericardial effusion with cardiac tamponade is an uncommon metastatic manifestation of gynecologic cancers. We describe a patient with ovarian cancer who developed pericardial effusion with cardiac tamponade and was successfully treated with pericardiocentesis and intrapericardial instillation of thiotepa. A[…][]

  • 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[…][]

  • Peripartum Cardiomyopathy

    Critical Care Medicine. 33(10):S340-S346, OCT 2005 DOI: 10.1097/01.CCM.0000183500.47273.8E, PMID: 16215357 Issn Print: 0090-3493 Publication Date: 2005/10/01 Checking for direct PDF access through Ovid Abstract To provide a review of the cardiac and obstetrical literature regarding the development of peripartum[…][]
