93 Possible Causes for Increased Jugular Venous Pressure, Right Pleural Effusion

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Right heart failure is characterized by low output syndrome with increased jugular venous pressure, increased liver size and hypotension.[doi.org] effusion · Decrease in vital capacity by one third from maximum recorded · Tachycardia (heart rate 120 beats/min.)[medicalcriteria.com] Jugular venous pressure is frequently assessed as a marker of fluid status, which can be accentuated by eliciting hepatojugular reflux.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    The fluid status is checked by jugular venous pressure, which usually gets accentuated by the hepatojugular reflux.[newhealthadvisor.com] Pleural effusion Pleural effusion more evident on lateral view Pleural effusion is bilateral in 70% of cases of CHF.[radiologyassistant.nl] A paradoxical increase in the jugular venous pressure during inspiration (Kussmaul sign) is indicative of right-sided heart failure and can be seen in RV failure, restrictive[merckmanuals.com]

  • Chronic Constrictive Pericarditis

    Physical Examination Findings Increased ventricular filling pressures cause jugular venous distention and Kussmaul's sign (paradoxical rise in jugular venous pressure on inspiration[clevelandclinicmeded.com] A 61-year-old male had complained of cough and dyspnea on effort, with right pleural effusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present a patient with unexplained dyspnea, recurrent right-side pleural effusion, and ascites.[hindawi.com]

  • Malignant Pericardial Effusion

  • Cor Pulmonale

    […] and other neck and facial veins Increased jugular venous pressure Hepatomegaly Cyanosis Abnormal heart sounds Physical indicators of cor pulmonale on exam: Pulmonary hypertension[symptoma.com] A chest radiograph showed cardiomegaly and right pleural effusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A chest radiograph showed cardiomegaly, a right lower lobe infiltrate and a small right pleural effusion.[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Chest x-ray showed diffuse interstitial edema, a small right pleural effusion, and a normal heart size. She was given supplemental oxygen via face mask.[professional.diabetes.org] Herein, we present a 62-year-old male patient who developed reexpansion pulmonary edema after drainage of massive pleural effusion, which caused a total collapse in the right[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe a case of fatal contralateral RPE in a 59-years-old woman with right lung cancer underwent ultrasound-guided thoracentesis for massive pleural effusion and severe[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • High Output Heart Failure

    Physical findings are increased jugular venous pressure, tachycardia usually with a third heart sound, bilateral bibasilar crackles and a wide pulse pressure.[omicsonline.org] Physical examination also revealed clinical signs of right heart failure, including peripheral edema, hepatomegaly, jugular vein dilatation, ascites, and right pleural effusion[circ.ahajournals.org] Patients may present with the usual signs of high-output heart failure including tachycardia, elevated pulse pressure, hyperkinetic precordium, and jugular venous distension[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Recurrent Pulmonary Embolism

    A chest film 2 weeks earlier had revealed a right-sided cutoff of pulmonary vasculature; the current film showed right-sided pleural effusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A chest film 2 weeks earlier had revealed a cutoff of pulmonary vasculature on the right side ( Figure 1 ). The current film showed right-sided pleural effusion.[nature.com] A pleural effusion is sometimes present that is exudative, detectable by decreased percussion note, audible breath sounds, and vocal resonance.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    In this case, the elevated jugular venous pressure suggests a right ventricle that has reached its preload reserve, and further increases in the impedance to RV ejection may[circ.ahajournals.org] Echography showed a moderate amount of pleural effusion on both sides and no dilatation of the right cardiac ventricle.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He still experienced pleural effusion and had symptoms of cough and shortness of breath. Chest X-ray demonstrated bilateral pleural effusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
