944 Possible Causes for Increased Area of Cardiac Dullness, P Mitrale, Pleural Effusion on Chest X-Ray

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    The daily dosage was adjusted on the basis of the patient's clinical response and her follow-up chest x-ray studies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Lancellotti P, Gerard PL, Pierard LA. Long-term outcome of patients with heart failure and dynamic functional mitral regurgitation.[emedicine.com] Testing may include a chest x-ray to look for cardiomegaly (an enlarged heart), pulmonary edema (fluid in the lungs), or pleural effusion (collection of fluid around the lungs[dx.doi.org]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    […] markedly longer chordae tendineae (DCM-lowMR: 24 [20-26] mm; controls: 14 [13-16] mm; P 0.01) and larger anterior leaflets (DCM-lowMR: 30 [27-31] mm; controls: 22 [20-24] mm; P[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Four DCM patients with moderate-severe MR had unbalanced remodeling, such as excessive LV dilatation, short anterior mitral leaflets, and short chordae tendineae.The development[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Generalized enlargement of the heart is seen upon normal chest X-ray. Pleural effusion may also be noticed, which is due to pulmonary venous hypertension.[en.wikipedia.org] […] markedly longer chordae tendineae (DCM-lowMR: 24 [20-26] mm; controls: 14 [13-16] mm; P 0.01) and larger anterior leaflets (DCM-lowMR: 30 [27-31] mm; controls: 22 [20-24] mm; P[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chest x-ray shows cardiomegaly, usually of all chambers.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Endocardial Fibroelastosis

    On the chest X-ray, bilateral pleural effusion was observed ( Fig. 1 ).[synapse.koreamed.org] He had P mitrale and ST changes on ECG (Fig. 4A), septal thickness of 22 mm (4B), LVEF 65%, biatrial enlargement (4C) and a grade III diastolic dysfunction (4D).[escardio.org] Endocardial Fibroelastosis Monica P. Revelo, MD, PhD Gross specimen shows left ventricle with white opaque thickened endocardium and flat trabeculae.[basicmedicalkey.com]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

  • Pericardial Effusion

    Radiologic examinations were carried out, and the computed tomography scan revealed a hepatomegaly and a chest X-ray showed evidence of a unilateral pleural effusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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.[merckmanuals.com] Figure 1 The patient's admission chest x-ray demonstrating an enlarged cardiac silhouette, evidence of bilateral pleural effusions, more prominent on the left hemithorax,[wjso.biomedcentral.com]

    BACKGROUND: Mallory-Weiss syndrome is defined by upper gastrointestinal bleeding from vomiting-induced mucosal lacerations at the esophago-gastric junction. This study was purposed to investigate the incidence, location, clinical manifestation, diagnosis and effectiveness of treatment (including endoscopic treatment[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Suppurative Pericarditis

    Initial chest X-ray showed cardiomegaly, bibasilar and retrocardiac parenchymal opacities, without signs of pulmonary congestion or pleural effusion (Figure 1).[revistas.unal.edu.co] P - pericardium, v - visceral, p - parietal; LA - left atrium, MV - mitral valve, LV - left ventricle, A - Aorta.[indianpediatrics.net] 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]
