15 Possible Causes for Increased Area of Cardiac Dullness, Non Specific ST-T Changes, Sudden Death

  • Cardiomyopathy

    A thorough family history of juvenile sudden death, ventricular arrhythmias and ICD implants should always be sought.[] METHODS: Two cases of sudden cardiac death owing to ARVC were reported.[] Sudden Death Risk A major impetus in HCM has been the identification of those patients at increased risk for sudden death.[]

  • 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[] In sudden cardiac death the focus is on heart function. This means that actual death and sudden cardiac death is not, by definition, the same thing.[] ST-T changes in association with pericardial effusion Renal failure associated with severe kidney infection Autoimmune disease Medication When You Suffer Pericarditis During[]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    The patient presented with sudden arrhythmic death and survived with permanent anoxic brain injury.[] Electrocardiogram revealed sinus tachycardia and non-specific ST-T changes in the lateral leads.[] In the family, there was a strong family history of DCM and sudden cardiac death in four generations.[]

  • Primary Cardiomyopathy

    death, Cardiomegaly Functional AV valve regurgitation S3 and/or S4 Exertional dyspnea, angina, syncope, sudden death Systolic murmur mitral regurgitation murmur, S4 Bifid[] Clinically overt hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is the most common cause of sudden unexpected death in childhood.[] B 5, 14 An implantable cardioverter-defibrillator should be placed in patients with cardiomyopathy who are at risk of sudden death.[]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    KEYWORDS: Cardiac magnetic resonance; Non-ischemic cardiomyopathy; Sudden cardiac death[] Beta-blockers may avert sudden death in heart failure.[] A randomized study of the prevention of sudden death in patients with coronary artery disease.[]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    The frequency of alcoholic cardiomyopathy among victims of sudden death suggests that alcoholic cardiomyopathy is a risk factor for sudden cardiac death.[] Abstract The morphologic features of alcoholic cardiomyopathy in human sudden death compared with those of experimental alcoholic cardiomyopathy (6 weeks of alcohol administration[] Abstract Seven hundred fifty-two cases of instantaneous sudden cardiac death were studied.[]

  • 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.[] Presenting symptoms include heart failure, arrhythmias, sudden death, cyanosis and chest pain.[] death during the neonatal period.[]

  • Peripartum Cardiomyopathy

    Sudden deaths during the course of PPCM are reported to be elevated, the underlying mechanisms remains unknown.[] Aggressive use of implantable defibrillators has significantly reduced the risk of sudden death in these patients.[] KEYWORDS: Peripartum cardiomyopathy; Sudden cardiac death; Ventricular tachyarrhythmia; Wearable cardioverter/defibrillator[]

  • Toxic Myocarditis

    Kussmaul's sign A paradoxical increase in venous distention and pressure during inspiration. Finding associated with cardiac tamponade.[] Although sudden unexpected death in children and young people has been scarcely studied, a significant proportion (16%) of all sudden deaths and a considerable percentage[] The most common abnormality seen in myocarditis is sinus tachycardia with non-specific ST segment and T wave changes.[]

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    We report sudden death in a patient diagnosed with AAAD and in whom critical care ultrasound highly indicated hemorrhagic cardiac tamponade.[] EKG 1,4 low voltage QRS, tachycardia, electrical alternans, PR depression, non-specific ST-T wave changes CXR 1,4 increased cardiac silhouette as compared to previous (most[] Clinical presentation ranges from chest pain alone to ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction, ventricular fibrillation, and sudden death.[]
