54 Possible Causes for Platypnea

  • 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.[] KEYWORDS: Dyspnoea; echocardiography; orthodeoxia; platypnea[] Abstract A 61-year-old woman presented with platypnea and orthodeoxia after right pneumonectomy for lung cancer.[]

  • Pulmonary Arteriovenous Fistula

    Platypnea-orthodeoxia syndrome is rare, and patients with this syndrome require an extensive workup to determine its cause.[] The signs and symptoms of Pulmonary Arteriovenous Fistula include: Shortness of breath: Increased shortness of breath in upright position (platypnea), relieved by lying down[] If the patient becomes significantly desaturated in the upright position, the patient also demonstrates platypnea, which is dyspnea in the upright position, although this[]

  • 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[]

  • 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[]

  • Traumatic Bronchial Rupture

    Florida, Jacksonville, Florida 32224, USA. [email protected] Abstract A patient with blunt trauma and traumatic bronchial rupture and lung collapse had prominent symptoms of platypnea-orthodeoxia[]

  • Patent Foramen Ovale

    Abstract Patent foramen ovale has been associated with multiple pulmonary diseases, such as pulmonary hypertension, platypnea-orthodeoxia syndrome, and chronic obstructive[] .: The presence of patent foramen ovale (PFO) has been linked to many illness, including cryptogenic stroke, transient ischemic attack, migraine, platypnea-orthodeoxia syndrome[] This is called platypnea-orthodeoxia. This is rare.[]

  • 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[] Abstract We describe an adult patient with an ostium primum atrial septal defect (ASD) and a patent foramen ovale (PFO) with normal right heart pressures who presented with platypnea[]

  • Chiari Network

    We present a previously healthy patient who developed platypnea orthodeoxia in her eighth decade of life.[] Abstract Platypnea orthodeoxia is a rare syndrome that describes breathlessness on standing that resolves on lying flat.[]

  • Cholecystectomy

    As these episodes were mainly induced by postural changes, a platypnea-orthodeoxia syndrome was suspected.[] Platypnea-Orthodeoxia Syndrome After Complicated Cholecystectomy: An Unsuspected Diagnosis Abstract A 65-year-old woman with no significant prior medical history presented[]
