52 Possible Causes for Increased Jugular Venous Pressure, Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

  • 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[] From Wikidata Jump to navigation Jump to search congestive heart failure that involves a failure of the right side of the heart and is characterized by an enlargement of the[] jugular venous pressure) are often obscured by hyperinflation of the chest 6 which is present in a number of COPD patients.[]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    The fluid status is checked by jugular venous pressure, which usually gets accentuated by the hepatojugular reflux.[] We characterize congestive heart failure as either left sided congestive heart failure or right sided congestive heart failure.[] Other names for the condition besides congestive heart failure are: Left-sided heart failure Right-sided heart failure Systolic heart failure Diastolic heart failure.[]

  • Cardiomyopathy

  • Recurrent Pulmonary Embolism

    To report the detection of a thrombus entrapped in a patent foramen ovale by echocardiography in a patient with recurrent pulmonary embolism. Case report. Intensive care unit of a university hospital. A 62-yr-old man with initial deep venous thrombosis and recurrent minor pulmonary embolism followed by a severe[…][]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    Physical examination is notable for elevated jugular venous pressure, often with Kussmaul's sign (paradoxical increase in jugular venous pressure with inspiration).[] pressures Jugular venous pressure may be increased Left ventricular impulse is usually normal and palpable Third heart sound may be audible due to rapid ventricular filling[] […] features Most common presentation is congestive heart failure and patients may require transplantation Atrial fibrillation is very common; also elevated systemic and pulmonary venous[]

  • 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[] Usually, the symptoms are similar to those associated with right-side congestive heart failure (CHF).[]

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    Signs And Symptoms When tricuspid regurgitation is severe it can lead to right sided heart failure and right-sided congestion.[] They may also experience the classic symptoms of “right-sided heart failure” from elevated right atrial pressures, such as ascites, congestive hepatopathy, peripheral edema[] Even though the tricuspid valve is a right-sided heart structure, the most common cause of tricuspid regurgitation is actually left sided heart failure leading to congestion[]

  • Tricuspid Stenosis

    Tricuspid Valve Stenosis is a valvular heart disease that narrows the opening of the heart's tricuspid valve. It is a relatively rare condition that causes stenosis-increased restriction of blood flow through the valve. A mild diastolic murmur can be heard during auscultation caused by the blood flow through the[…][]

  • Right Atrial Myxoma

    Myxoma is a primary tumor of the heart that develops in the right atrium in about 20% of cases, with a strong predilection toward females and a mean onset of symptoms around 50 years of age. Both sporadic and familial forms are recognized and the clinical presentation ranges from asymptomatic to pulmonary[…][]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Right heart failure is characterized by low output syndrome with increased jugular venous pressure, increased liver size and hypotension.[] Congestive cardiac failure usually involves failure of both the left and right side of the heart.[] Jugular venous pressure is frequently assessed as a marker of fluid status, which can be accentuated by eliciting hepatojugular reflux.[]
