919 Possible Causes for Increased Jugular Venous Pressure, Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure, Tenderness in the Right Upper Quadrant

  • 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.[] 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[]

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    […] compliance and signs of right-sided failure appear: jugular venous distension, hepatic congestion, ascites, and peripheral edema.[] Signs And Symptoms When tricuspid regurgitation is severe it can lead to right sided heart failure and right-sided congestion.[] FAILURE Right-Sided and Left-Sided Heart Failure and Systemic Congestion: Physical Examination Right-Sided and Left-Sided Heart Failure in Dilated Cardiomyopathy and 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.[]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Cardiomyopathy is a group of diseases that affect the heart muscle. Early on there may be few or no symptoms. Some people may have shortness of breath, feel tired, or have swelling of the legs due to heart failure. An irregular heart beat may occur as well as fainting. Those affected are at an increased risk of[…][]

  • Acute Cor Pulmonale

    Indeed, left heart failure is the most common cause of right-sided failure and results in a combination of their respective clinical syndromes termed "Congestive Heart Failure[] Q: I have a question regarding congestive heart failure (CHF): Is it related to cor pulmonale? A: There are two sides of the heart—left and right.[] Congestive cardiac failure due to primary cardiological disease. Congenital right-sided cardiac impairment.[]

  • Recurrent Pulmonary Embolism

    A 45-year-old woman with a history of recurrent pulmonary embolism was admitted to the emergency clinic with dyspnea, wheezing and tachypnea. Partial deep vein thrombosis of the popliteal vein was seen on Doppler sonography. On the contrast-enhanced thorax computed tomography (CT) scan, a clot was detected in[…][]

  • 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[] In all but mild cases of RCM, jugular venous pressure is increased. The left ventricular impulse is usually normal and palpable.[]

  • Right Atrial Myxoma

    Common symptoms associated with the failing right heart are prominent jugular a waves, increases in venous pressure, abdominal protuberance due to ascites and hepatomegaly[] The symptoms of left atrial myxoma may rapidly become severe and intractable, and are associated with signs of congestive heart failure.[] Right Atrial Myxomas Right-sided tumours may present with episodes of syncope and right heart failure, and may progress rapidly despite medical treatment.[]

  • 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).[] CLINICAL PRESENTATION  The usual presentation consists of signs and symptoms of right-sided heart failure.[]
