67 Possible Causes for Left Ventricular Hypertrophy, Narrow Pulse Pressure

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    BACKGROUND: Fabry disease (FD) and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) are two diseases with a different pathophysiology, both cause left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and myocardial[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Left ventricular hypertrophy is rare in children with TNNT2 mutations. Left ventricular hypertrophy is absent in the minority of adults, but most have an abnormal ECG.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] for severe concentric left ventricular hypertrophy with diastolic dysfunction consistent with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    Signs Examination of the pulse in significant AS reveals a slow-rising, flat character called pulsus parvus et tardus. [ 7 ] Blood pressure will show a narrow pulse pressure[patient.info] ventricular hypertrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical examination classically reveals a narrow pulse pressure, a slow-rising peripheral pulse, pulsus parvus et tardus (weak and delayed pulse) in the carotid pulse, a[radiopaedia.org]

  • Aortic Stenosis with Bicuspid Valve

    Signs Examination of the pulse in significant AS reveals a slow-rising, flat character called pulsus parvus et tardus. [ 7 ] Blood pressure will show a narrow pulse pressure[patient.info] If there are signs of left ventricular hypertrophy (thickening of the ventricle walls) or arrhythmia in conjunction with moderate stenosis, then the patient should be confined[pted.org] Left ventricular hypertrophy is present in bicuspid aortic stenosis.

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    Haemodynamic features delineated in the 1940s and '50s included the narrow pulse pressure in the right ventricle with normal systolic pressure and greatly increased diastolic[heart.bmj.com] A patient with restrictive physiology without left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) would be diagnosed as IRCM, while one with LVH would be diagnosed as HCM with restrictive[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Echocardiography shows bilateral atrial enlargement with normal ventricular size but significant diffuse left ventricular hypertrophy, especially with amyloidosis.[emedicine.com]

  • Congenital Aortic Valve Stenosis

    Signs Examination of the pulse in significant AS reveals a slow-rising, flat character called pulsus parvus et tardus. [ 7 ] Blood pressure will show a narrow pulse pressure[patient.info] The electrocardiogram could reveal left ventricular hypertrophy, left bundle branch block, ST segment depression, and negative T waves.[symptoma.com] Clinical examination classically reveals a narrow pulse pressure, a slow-rising peripheral pulse, pulsus parvus et tardus (weak and delayed pulse) in the carotid pulse, a[radiopaedia.org]

  • Rheumatic Aortic Valve Obstruction

    Clinical examination classically reveals a narrow pulse pressure, a slow-rising peripheral pulse, pulsus parvus et tardus (weak and delayed pulse) in the carotid pulse, a[radiopaedia.org] Another thing that may occur is LVH, or left ventricular hypertrophy.[khanacademy.org] ventricular hypertrophy.[healio.com]

  • Supravalvular Aortic Stenosis

    pulse pressure Electrocardiogram: Although aortic stenosis does not lead to any specific findings on the electrocardiogram (ECG), it still often leads to a number of electrocardiographic[checkorphan.org] Individuals with significant supravalvular AS chronically may develop left ventricular hypertrophy and also are at risk of developing coronary artery stenosis.[en.wikipedia.org] The EKG generally reveals left ventricular hypertrophy when the obstruction is severe and is similar to that seen in other forms of obstruction to left ventricular outflow[healio.com]

  • Hypertension

    […] and a narrow pulse pressure (by definition, isolated diastolic hypertension) had auscultatory BP measurements that overestimated the true, intra-arterial DBP. 11 In support[doi.org] Sixteen months later, his average HBP was 147/106 mm Hg with no side effects and the left ventricular hypertrophy had completely regressed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although death and cardiovascular disability do not occur in hypertensive children, intermediate markers of target organ damage, such as left ventricular hypertrophy, thickening[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Essential Hypertension

    […] in shape of the arterial pressure pulse (it becomes narrower).[cvphysiology.com] In hypertension patients, 25 patients were left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), miR-29a (32.82 4.06 vs 30.07 3.68; p 0.012), miR-29b (33.27 2.84 vs 30.71 3.04; p 0.02), and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Subtle target-organ damage such as left-ventricular hypertrophy, microalbuminuria, and cognitive dysfunction takes place early in the course of hypertensive cardiovascular[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Signs There may be a tachycardia at rest, low systolic blood pressure (BP), a displaced apex (LV dilatation) or RV heave (pulmonary hypertension), a narrow pulse pressure[patient.info] Transthoracic echocardiographic examination showed bilateral atrial enlargement, left ventricular hypertrophy, anteroseptal hypokinesia and akinesia, and moderate mitral and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ventricular hypertrophy hypertrophic cardiomyopathy amyloidosis sarcoidosis hemochromatosis scleroderma post-operative/radiation fibrosis high-output heart failure obesity[medbullets.com]
