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

  • Cardiomyopathy

SAECG Late potentials seen on signal-averaged ECG 3.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] wave inversion, abnormal Q waves , nonspecific abnormalities Laboratory: troponin T ; , BNP Echocardiography : apical left ventricular ballooning , LVEF Coronary angiography[amboss.com] […] with no history of CAD, and frequent T-wave inversion.[aafp.org]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is characterized by the basal hypercontractility and apical ballooning of the left ventriculum and T-wave inversion in the electrocardiogram.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Electrocardiogram revealed sinus tachycardia and non-specific ST-T changes in the lateral leads.[doi.org] The main role of ECG is to detect evidence of myocardial ischemia (pathologic Q waves with ST elevation and T wave inversion in leads I, aVL, V 5, V 6 ) that might point to[transplantbuddies.org]

  • Primary Cardiomyopathy

    […] with no history of CAD, and frequent T-wave inversion.[aafp.org] Patients present with an abrupt onset of angina-like chest pain, and have diffuse T-wave inversion, sometimes preceded by ST-segment elevation, and mild cardiac enzyme elevation[academic.oup.com] , and frequent T-wave inversion Echocardiography shows LVH of unknown etiology with reduction in ventricular chamber volume Pharmacologic therapy based on the 2005 ACC/AHA[aafp.org]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    Because of the shortage of donor hearts, 16 (33%) of 48 patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy died awaiting transplantation. Determining factors that predict effective coronary revascularization and identifying patients who may benefit from revascularization is crucial. From 1984 to 1990, 207 ischemic cardiomyopathy[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

  • Peripartum Cardiomyopathy

    Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is a form of dilated cardiomyopathy that is defined as a deterioration in cardiac function presenting typically between the last month of pregnancy and up to six months postpartum. As with other forms of dilated cardiomyopathy, PPCM involves systolic dysfunction of the heart with[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Suppurative Pericarditis

    wave inversions may develop In general, infection is the most common cause of pericarditis.[radiopaedia.org] 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[tele.med.ru] ST-T changes in association with pericardial effusion Renal failure associated with severe kidney infection Autoimmune disease Medication When You Suffer Pericarditis During[pericarditispain.info]

  • Pericardial Effusion

  • Toxic Myocarditis

    Thereafter, T-wave inversion typically ensues. The T-wave inversion may be discrete and lasts for one month.[ecgwaves.com] Kussmaul's sign A paradoxical increase in venous distention and pressure during inspiration. Finding associated with cardiac tamponade.[atsu.edu] The most common abnormality seen in myocarditis is sinus tachycardia with non-specific ST segment and T wave changes.[lifeinthefastlane.com]
