71 Possible Causes for Platypnea

  • Pulmonary Arteriovenous Malformation

    Platypnea is associated with orthodeoxia which is oxygen desaturation that occurs while upright and improves while supine.[] (see Platypnea-Orthodeoxia , [[Platypnea-Orthodeoxia]]) Orthodeoxia: hypoxemia with upright position Platpnea: dyspnea with upright position Physiology: since vascular dilatations[] In patients with large or multiple PAVMs, dyspnea is found to be a very common symptom with finding of platypnea in some patients as well ( 9 ).[]

  • Atrial Myxoma

    This phenomenon is called platypnea and can occur with other disorders as well.[] Symptoms may include: Shortness of breath with activity Platypnea – Difficulty breathing in the upright position with relief in the supine position Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea[] Click image to hear the "tumor plop" DIAGNOSIS: left atrial myxoma, causing platypnea (the opposite of orthopnea) as the myxoma intermittently obstructs the mitral valve when[]

  • Pulmonary Arteriovenous Fistula

    We describe a case of a rare clinical disorder, platypnea-orthodeoxia syndrome. A 57-year-old man was admitted with progressive dyspnea.[] If the patient becomes significantly desaturated in the upright position, the patient also demonstrates platypnea, which is dyspnea in the upright position, although this[] The signs and symptoms of Pulmonary Arteriovenous Fistula include: Shortness of breath: Increased shortness of breath in upright position (platypnea), relieved by lying down[]

  • Right to Left Shunt

    Diagnosis of platypnea-orthodeoxia syndrome was demonstrated by O2 saturation and arterial blood gas analysis in the supine and upright positions.[] Endovascular patent foramen ovale closure permitted the resolution of symptoms and disappearance of platypnea-orthodeoxia syndrome.[] A 61-year-old woman presented with platypnea and orthodeoxia after right pneumonectomy for lung cancer.[]

  • Diffuse Palmoplantar Keratoderma

    Uhrglasnägel ) auf. en Remarkable were clinical signs of chronic liver disease (cutaneous spider naevi, palmar erythema) and signs of chronic respiratory failure (clubbing) with platypnea[]

  • Atrial Septal Aneurysm

    Platypnea-orthodeoxia is a peculiar syndrome characterized by a right-to-left shunt, which occurs in the upright position.[] […] foramen ovale are paradoxical embolism of the thrombus, air or fat with a subsequent cerebrovascular accident (ischemic brain lesions on MRI), refractory hypoxemia, and platypnea-orthodeoxia[] Transcatheter management of platypnea-orthodeoxia syndrome. J Invasive Cardiol . 2004 Oct. 16(10):583-4. [Medline] . Schuchlenz HW, Weihs W, Berghold A, et al.[]

  • Chiari Network

    Platypnea orthodeoxia is a rare syndrome that describes breathlessness on standing that resolves on lying flat.[] Transcatheter closure of patent foramen ovale: a definitive treatment for platypnea-orthodeoxia. Catheter Cardiovasc Interv . 2000 Sep. 51(1):120. [Medline] .[] We present a previously healthy patient who developed platypnea orthodeoxia in her eighth decade of life.[]

  • Ostium Primum Atrial Septal Defect

    Surgical closure of these defects resulted in the disappearance of both platypnea and orthodeoxia.[] Platypnea-orthodeoxia is a rare syndrome characterized by orthostatic provocation of a right-to-left shunt across an atrial septal defect or a patent foramen ovale. 85, 86[] Rao PS, Palacios IF, Bach RG, Bitar SR, Sideris EB: Platypnea-orthodeoxia; management by transcatheter buttoned device implantation.[]

  • Hepatopulmonary Syndrome

    Dyspnea and hypoxemia are worse in the upright position (which is called platypnea and orthodeoxia , respectively).[] Orthodeoxia and platypnea are usual clinical features. A simple non invasive method to screen HPS is desirable.[] , [[Platypnea-Orthodeoxia]]): characteristic worsened hypoxemia with upright position Platypnea (see Platypnea-Orthodeoxia , [[Platypnea-Orthodeoxia]]): dyspnea with upright[]

  • Arteriovenous Malformation

    Platypnea is associated with orthodeoxia which is oxygen desaturation that occurs while upright and improves while supine.[] Like PAVMs, IPVDs can cause dyspnea, platypnea, clubbing, hypoxia, and orthodeoxia.[] Platypnea can occur from pulmonary arteriovenous malformations and is described as the sensation of dyspnea while in the upright position that improves or resolved while laying[]
