58 Possible Causes for Liver Pulsation

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    Systolic pulsations of an enlarged, tender liver. Ascites and oedema.[patient.info] In severe TR, a right jugular venous thrill may be palpable, as may systolic hepatic pulsation and an RV impulse at the left lower sternal border.[merckmanuals.com] Right hypochondrial discomfort from liver distension, hepatic pulsation, ascites and peripheral oedema, which are severe compared to the degree of dyspnoea.[patient.info]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Left-sided heart failure The heart's pumping action moves oxygen-rich blood as it travels from the lungs to the left atrium, then on to the left ventricle, which pumps it to the rest of the body. The left ventricle supplies most of the heart's pumping power, so it's larger than the other chambers and essential for[…][heart.org]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Diagnosis of CHF requires the simultaneous presence of at least 2 major criteria or 1 major criterion in conjunction with 2 minor criteria. Major criteria: · Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea · Neck vein distention · Rales · Radiographic cardiomegaly (increasing heart size on chest radiography) · Acute pulmonary edema[…][web.archive.org]

    INTERVENTIONS: The patient received two liver transplantations. During the first liver transplantation, the hepatic artery (HA) pulsations were normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After division of the median arcuate ligament, the patient’s liver enzymes, INR, and WBC gradually normalized.[surgicalcasereports.springeropen.com] The median arcuate ligament was released, with subsequent dramatic resumption of celiac trunk and common hepatic artery hepatic artery pulsation.[surgicalcasereports.springeropen.com]
