25 Possible Causes for Non Specific ST-T Changes, Pulsus Alternans

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Pulsus alternans is an infrequent, complex pathophysiologic sign often associated with severe heart failure.[] Electrocardiogram revealed sinus tachycardia and non-specific ST-T changes in the lateral leads.[] Evaluation noted pulsus alternans, with beat-to-beat alternations in aortic pulse wave amplitude, both clinically and on diagnostic studies.[]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    RATIONALE: Left ventricular non-compaction cardiomyopathy (LVNC) is a rare heart disorder related to thrombosis. Anticoagulant therapy is suggested for the treatment of this disease. The success of the novel oral anticoagulant rivaroxaban as a treatment option for this disorder is unclear. PATIENT CONCERNS: A[…][]

  • Toxic Myocarditis

    The most common abnormality seen in myocarditis is sinus tachycardia with non-specific ST segment and T wave changes.[] ECG Examples Example 1 Sinus tachycardia with non-specific ST segment changes Example 2 Myopericarditis: Widespread concave ST elevation ( pericarditic changes) in a child[]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    Abstract BACKGROUND Ischemic cardiomyopathy is characterized by myocyte loss, reactive cellular hypertrophy, and ventricular scarring. However, the relative contribution of these tissue and cellular processes to late failure remains to be determined. METHODS AND RESULTS Ten hearts were obtained from individuals[…][]

  • Lymphocytic Myocarditis

    On ICU admission, a 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) detected sinus tachycardia of 100/min and non-specific ST-T wave changes without any significant evidence of acute myocardial[]

  • Fungal Myocarditis

    Once heart dysfunction sets in, signs of cardiac failure may manifest, such as pulmonary edema (fluid accumulation in the lungs), peripheral oedema, hypoxemia, pulsus alternans[]

  • Bacterial Myocarditis

    The ECG may demonstrate non-specific changes such as ST segment depression or elevation, T wave inversion or the presence of pathological Q waves.[] Common investigations include ECG, blood work, CXR, myocardial imaging and more specifically endomyocardial biopsy.[]

  • Acute Myocarditis

    Abstract A 5-month-old boy was admitted to hospital presenting with cardiogenic shock. The echocardiographic examinations revealed a severe ventricular dysfunction. Despite the aggressive medical therapy, his hemodynamic status progressively deteriorated. Mechanical circulatory support was initially provided with[…][]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    Leg elevation promptly reversed the pulsus alternans, and the echocardiographic abnormality.[] Application of a small dose of glyceryl trinitrate paste (0.25 in) resulted in severe left ventricular dysfunction with the appearance of pulsus alternans in a patient with[]

  • Primary Cardiomyopathy

    Abstract Eleven patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy and eight patients with idiopathic congestive cardiomyopathy underwent extensive neuromuscular studies to determine if a skeletal myopathy is associated with uncomplicated primary cardiomyopathy. The clinical examination revealed peripheral[…][]
