93 Possible Causes for Mild Pulmonary Artery Dilation

  • Left Cardiac Ventricle Disorder

    […] with moderately depressed systolic function, mild right atrial enlargement, flattened interventricular septum, dilated inferior vena cava, and a pulmonary artery systolic[err.ersjournals.com] […] a normal-sized left ventricle, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) of 35–40%, delayed left ventricular diastolic relaxation, normal left atrium, right ventricular dilation[err.ersjournals.com]

  • Right-Sided Heart Failure

    We present the case of a patient with severe but stable pulmonary sarcoidosis and new onset right sided heart failure despite only mild elevations of pulmonary artery pressure[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CMR demonstration of extensive right ventricular fibrosis with associated dilatation and hypokinesis was a key finding for prognosis and management of the patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypertensive Heart Disease

    […] with moderately depressed systolic function, mild right atrial enlargement, flattened interventricular septum, dilated inferior vena cava, and a pulmonary artery systolic[err.ersjournals.com] […] a normal-sized left ventricle, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) of 35–40%, delayed left ventricular diastolic relaxation, normal left atrium, right ventricular dilation[err.ersjournals.com]

  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus

    Cardiology consultation was requested and, in light of her mild pulmonary hypertension, dilated pulmonary artery, left atrial enlargement, and recurrent pneumonia, the option[jabfm.org] Pulmonary arterial hypertension of mild to severe degree was present in the majority of patients but pulmonary vascular resistance was elevated in only five infants.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Moderate left and right atrial enlargement and a mildly enlarged main pulmonary artery were noted.[jabfm.org]

  • High Output Heart Failure

    […] stenosis and regurgitation, mild pulmonary artery hypertension by direct PA pressure measurement 39/18 mm Hg (mean 26 mm Hg), normal pulmonary wedge pressure, and an abnormally[shmabstracts.com] The patient underwent right and left heart catheterizations and was found to have dilated right and left ventricles with an ejection fraction of 55%, moderate mitral valve[shmabstracts.com]

  • Recurrent Pulmonary Embolism

    […] diastolic dysfunction with the right ventricular dilatation and mild tricuspid regurgitation.[ijhas.in] As per the literature since the pulmonary arterial hypertension 50 mm Hg is unlikely to occur in ILD, an alternate diagnosis other than ILD was considered.[ijhas.in] Her resting echocardiogram showed severe pulmonary arterial hypertension of 74 mm Hg with normal left ventricular systolic function (ejection fraction-60%) and left ventricular[ijhas.in]

  • Heart Valve Disease

    Pulmonary Regurgitation Pulmonary valve regurgitation is an uncommon congenital lesion occasionally seen with what has been described as idiopathic dilation of the pulmonary[ahajournals.org] artery.[ahajournals.org] Mild pulmonary regurgitation may be a normal finding on Doppler echocardiography.[ahajournals.org]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Right atrium and right ventricle were dilated with associated mild tricuspid regurgitation and pulmonary artery systolic pressure of 47 mm Hg.[doi.org]

  • Incessant Infant Ventricular Tachycardia

    […] with mild mitral and tricuspid regurgitation, pulmonary arterial pressure 54 mmHg, and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) 33% and fractional shortening 12.5% suggesting[elsevier.es] dilated cardiomyopathy.[elsevier.es] Chest X-ray on admission revealed cardiomegaly and cephalization of pulmonary blood flow.[elsevier.es]

  • Acute Cor Pulmonale

    In patients with mild pulmonary hypertension, the pulmonary artery may be only slightly dilated, and the findings in patients with pulmonary hypertension may overlap with[pubs.rsna.org] However, it is important to emphasize that a diameter of less than 29 mm does not necessarily exclude pulmonary hypertension.[pubs.rsna.org]
