69 Possible Causes for Narrow Pulse Pressure, X-Ray Abnormal

  • 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] Chest X-ray and thoracic CT showed ground glass opacities or consolidation spreading from the hilar area to the peripheral area, suggesting central redistribution.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A specialist doctor will explain and carry out the procedure using X-ray images to find the abnormal blood vessel(s) and treat them if appropriate.[web.archive.org]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    This patient had a clear history of carbon monoxide poisoning, acute respiratory distress, bilateral lung dry and moist rale, chest X-ray showed bilateral pulmonary edema,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Radiofrequency Ablation : A catheter with an electrode at its tip is guided through the veins to the heart muscle with real-time, moving X-rays displayed on a video screen[physio-pedia.com] […] or seen but not clearly defined on the chest X-ray.[web.archive.org]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    An electrocardiogram (ECG) is also done and is almost always abnormal. Other heart tests include a Holter monitor, and chest x-ray.[mottchildren.org] A chest x-ray may be done, which will show an enlarged heart, but this is not specific to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.[acsm.org] An electrocardiogram, or heart tracing, may show an abnormal electrical current flowing through the heart, due to thickened heart muscle causing changes in the current.[acsm.org]

  • 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 physician injects a contrast solution into the artery and takes X-rays to check for blockage and other abnormalities.[wexnermedical.osu.edu] 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]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a rare but fatal complication of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with an associated mortality that ranges from 41% to 80%. The treatment consists of supplemental oxygenation, afterload reduction, intraaortic balloon pump, and surgical repair. In selected patients, extracorporeal[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dehydration

    Netherthon syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by ichthyosis, the characteristic hair abnormality trichorrhexis invaginata and atopic manifestations. We report a female child with the severe hypernatremic dehydration form of the Netherton syndrome born as the first child of[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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] The diagnosis is based largely on the combined results of a physical examination, electrocardiography (ECG), chest x-ray, and echocardiography.[merckmanuals.com] ECG, chest x-ray, and echocardiography are required. The ECG is usually nonspecifically abnormal, showing ST-segment and T-wave abnormalities and sometimes low voltage.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Addison's Disease

    MRI machines use radio waves and magnets to produce detailed pictures of the body’s internal organs and soft tissues without using x rays.[web.archive.org] A CT scan can show size and shape of the pituitary gland to find out if an abnormality is present. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).[web.archive.org]

  • Myxedema

    pulse pressure.[emedicine.com] The ECG may reveal conduction abnormalities and bradycardia. The chest X-ray may show an enlarged heart and pulmonary edema.[journals.lww.com] Hypotension, cardiac enlargement detectable on x-ray films, and bradycardia are the most significant abnormalities to occur during myxedema coma.[emjournal.net]

  • 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 physician injects a contrast solution into the artery and takes X-rays to check for blockage and other abnormalities.[wexnermedical.osu.edu] 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]
