22 Possible Causes for Increased Area of Cardiac Dullness, T Wave Inversion

  • Cardiomyopathy

    ECG T-wave inversion in right precordial leads (V 2 and V 3 ) 2. 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] New electrocardiographic abnormalities either ST-segment elevation and/or T-wave inversion or modest elevation in cardiac troponin level.[radiologyassistant.nl]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    At this point there may be signs of ventricular strain pattern (ST segment depression and T wave inversion) on the EKG, suggesting subendocardial ischemia.[en.wikipedia.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]

  • Primary Cardiomyopathy

    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]

  • 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[…][doi.org]

  • Anomalies of Coronary Artery Origin

    Resting electrocardiogram demonstrated incomplete right bundle branch block and T wave inversion in inferior leads.[ispub.com] The resting electrocardiogram demonstrated incomplete right bundle branch block and T wave inversion in the inferior leads.[ispub.com]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    Int J Biochem Cell Biol. 2017 Aug;89:125-135. doi: 10.1016/j.biocel.2017.06.009. Epub 2017 Jun 9.

  • Peripartum Cardiomyopathy

    Psychotic illness has a low incidence in the puerperal period. Peripartum cardiomyopathy as a complication of pregnancy is also rare. We report a case where the above two conditions occurred simultaneously in a patient and posed significant difficulties in the clinical management. She was diagnosed as having paranoid[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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.[merckmanuals.com] wave flattening or inversion Pericardial fluid drainage : used to sample the effusion in cases of unclear etiology Echocardiography is a quick and safe diagnostic tool for[amboss.com] Ancillary observations regarding the effect of reperfusion on the rapidity and amplitude of T wave inversion after acute myocardial infarction.[clevelandclinicmeded.com]

  • 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] In the second stage, the ST segments return to baseline with T-wave flattening. The third stage is distinguished by T-wave inversion without Q-wave formation.[emjournal.net]
