31 Possible Causes for Nocturnal Angina Pectoris

  • Unstable Angina

    Bronchiectasis is characterized by the abnormal and permanent dilatation of bronchi. Clinical manifestations of bronchiectasis include persistent or recurrent cough, purulent sputum, hemosputum, and hemoptysis. A 75-year-old man with bronchiectasis required coronary bypass grafting for unstable angina pectoris with[…][]

  • Fear

    This opportune case study describes visual and stepping behaviours of an 87 year old female (P8), both prior to, and following two falls. Before falling, when asked to walk along a path containing two stepping guides positioned before and after an obstacle, P8 generally visually fixated the first stepping guide until[…][]

  • Papillary Muscle Dysfunction

    A patient experienced episodic pulmonary edema accompanying nocturnal angina pectoris. The symptoms were provoked at cardiac catheterization by atrial pacing.[]

  • Esophagitis

    Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a relatively newly described disorder with increasing incidence. Patients with EoE may present at all ages from childhood through adulthood. Presenting symptoms may vary from feeding refusal, gagging, and/or vomiting in the younger population, dysphagia, chest pain, and abdominal pain[…][]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    A 56-year-old man was admitted because of palpitations and dyspnea. A 12-lead electrocardiogram showed irregular wide QRS complex tachycardia with a slur at the initial portion of the QRS complex. He had preexisting long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation, but early excitation syndrome had never been noted.[…][]

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

    In 2012 the FDA approved a magnetic sphincter augmentation (MSA) device (LINX, Torax Medical, Inc) for placement around the lower esophageal sphincter as an alternative approach to fundoplication for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This is a relatively new procedure and there is not widespread[…][]

  • Coronary Ischemia

    Mechanism of nocturnal angina pectoris: the importance of increased myocardial demand in patients with severe coronary artery disease. Lancet . 1984 ; 1 :1207-1209.[] Comparison of the effects of heparin and aspirin versus aspirin alone on transient myocardial ischemia and in-hospital prognosis in patients with unstable angina.[]

  • Abuse and Neglect

    Child abuse and neglect are important public health problems and recent estimates of their prevalence suggest that they are considerably more common than had hitherto been realized. Intervening to change parenting practices may, however, be important in their treatment. Despite their frequent occurrence among[…][]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Pulmonary hypertension secondary to respiratory disease most often occurs as a complication of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which currently constitutes one of the leading causes of death. Some patients with hypoxaemia reveal "out of proportion" pulmonary hypertension with inappropriate increase of[…][]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Pulmonary edema is fluid accumulation in the tissue and air spaces of the lungs . [1] It leads to impaired gas exchange and may cause respiratory failure . It is due to either failure of the left ventricle of the heart to remove blood adequately from the pulmonary circulation (cardiogenic pulmonary edema), or an[…][]
