26 Possible Causes for Increased Area of Cardiac Dullness, P Mitrale, Sudden Death

Long-term outcome of patients with heart failure and dynamic functional mitral regurgitation.[emedicine.com] The basic pharmacology of PDE inhibitors is presented and the use of PDE-3 inhibitors for the treatment of heart failure causing an increase in sudden death is also reviewed[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Primary Prevention of Sudden Death.[doi.org]

  • Suppurative Pericarditis

    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] 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.[ceufast.com]

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    The mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa (MAIVF) has a vital role in the integrity of the mitral and aortic valves.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report sudden death in a patient diagnosed with AAAD and in whom critical care ultrasound highly indicated hemorrhagic cardiac tamponade.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical presentation ranges from chest pain alone to ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction, ventricular fibrillation, and sudden death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
