1,831 Possible Causes for Mediastinal Shift, Mesocardia, Normal Electrocardiogram

  • Scimitar Syndrome

    The electrocardiogram showed left axis deviation and chest X-ray revealed cardiomegaly with pulmonary plethora.[] Figure 1 Preoperative Chest X-ray showed a dextroposition and mesocardia with scimitar vein.[] Mediastinal shift to the right with dextroversion of the heart.[]

  • Dextrocardia

    Fig. 2 A right-sided, 12-lead electrocardiogram shows normal axis and normal progression of R-wave amplitude in the precordial leads.[] […] containing back-references to 746.87 : Abdomen, abdominal - see also condition heart 746.87 Anomaly, anomalous (congenital) (unspecified type) 759.9 Asplenia 759.0 with mesocardia[] There were normal pulses in the lower extremities and no peripheral edema. His initial electrocardiogram is presented in Figure 1. EKG (normal lead positions): Figure 1.[]

  • Mediastinal Hernia

    Basic laboratory studies and an electrocardiogram were normal.[] Mesocardia (axis alteration of heart). Poor prognostic factors include: Diagnosis prior to 25 weeks of gestation. Liver herniation (7).[] If deflation of the stomach is not accomplished the mediastinal shift can impair venous return and lead to cardiac arrest [ 3, 12 – 14 ].[]

  • Bochdalek Hernia

    Her electrocardiogram showed a normal sinus rhythm with no ST segment or T-wave abnormalities.[] Mesocardia (axis alteration of heart). Poor prognostic factors include: Diagnosis prior to 25 weeks of gestation. Liver herniation (7).[] The electrocardiogram analysis did not reveal any cardiac abnormality.[]

  • Chest Wall Injury

    If angina is the potential diagnosis, further evaluation may include electrocardiograms (EKG or ECG) and blood tests.[] However, ventilatory and cardiovascular compromise may occur rapidly, due to the mediastinal shift.[] Tension pneumothorax is defined as a completely collapsed lung with contralateral shift of mediastinal structures and decreased venous return to the heart.[]

    Missing: Mesocardia
  • Chest Wall Disorder

    A patient may also have an electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) and an echocardiogram. An ECG is a test that records both normal and abnormal electrical activity of the heart.[] shift 63 64.[] Tracheal deviation and mediastinal shift occur with large pneumothoraces. The size of a pneumothorax is defined as the percentage of the hemithorax that is vacant.[]

  • Foreign Body Aspiration

    A cardiac cause for the arrest was suspected, but the post-arrest electrocardiogram was normal.[] CONCLUSION: Penetration syndrome, localized decreased breath sounds, unilateral hyperinflation and/or mediastinal shift on radiology are predictors for early diagnosis of[] Tracheal deviation, mediastinal shift. Diagnostic workout: Anamnesis (extraordinary episode of coughing, peanuts ?).[]

    Missing: Mesocardia
  • Artificial Pneumothorax

    An electrocardiogram (ECG; pronounced ih-LEK-tro-KAR-dee-o-gram) can also be taken. The ECG will tell whether the heart is functioning normally.[]

    Missing: Mesocardia
  • Congenital Pericardium Anomaly

    Her cardiac examination was completely normal. Her electrocardiogram showed poor R wave progression.[] […] tumours, kyphoscoliosis, abnormalities of the diaphragm. cardiac orientation - the base to apex orientation of the heart: levocardia - apex directed to the left of the midline mesocardia[] Other features may include mediastinal shift, pleural and pericardial effusions and pneumothoraces.[]

  • Mesocardia

    The echocardiography showed a cardiac malposition with the heart in the middle of the thorax, the atria in concordance with the ventricles, the great vessels in the normal[] mesocardia — meso·car·dia … English syllables mesocardia — n. placing of heart in middle of thorax … Dictionary of difficult words mesocardia — ˌme]zōˈkärdēə, ˌmē], ]sō noun[] Computed tomography revealed dislocation and counterclockwise rotation of the heart with the apex of the heart located in the mid-thorax, indicating mesocardia.[]
