74 Possible Causes for Pleural Effusion, Pulsatile Liver

  • Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

    After treatment with dasatinib he had multiple pleural effusions which were suspected to be caused by congestive heart failure.[] Jugular venous distension and hepatomegaly occur with heart failure, sometimes causing a pulsatile liver later in the disease state.[] Complications Complications of IPAH include the following: Advanced right-sided heart failure with hepatic congestion Pedal edema Pleural effusions Ascites Worsening dyspnea[]

  • Ascites

    The Dengue Score is a model for predicting pleural effusion and/or ascites and uses the hematocrit (Hct), albumin concentration, platelet count and aspartate aminotransferase[] Heart failure - distended jugular veins, palpable thrills and murmurs, enlarged & pulsatile liver; constrictive pericarditis - pulsus paradoxus c.[] We present three cases of endometriosis-related ascites, one of them with pleural effusion.[]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Pleural effusion Pleural effusion more evident on lateral view Pleural effusion is bilateral in 70% of cases of CHF.[] liver palpable below the right costal margin; abdominal swelling and ascites; and visible elevation of the jugular venous pressure, sometimes with large a or v waves that[] Hepatomegaly liver pulsatility if there is significant associated tricuspid regurgitation. Jaundice in advanced cases. Ascites in advanced cases.[]

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    With regard to the contribution of a chest radiography to the diagnosis, it may illustrate cardiomegaly, pleural effusions, and elevation of the diaphragm due to ascites.[] Right heart failure leads to ascites, hepatosplenomegaly, pulsatile liver, peripheral edema and pleural overflow. In advanced stages patients are cachectic and cyanotic.[] Fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath, jugular vein distension, ascites, hepato-splenomegaly, pulsatile liver, pleural effusions and peripheral oedema may be present.[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    A chest radiograph showed cardiomegaly and right pleural effusion.[] liver, a loud pulmonic component of the 2nd heart sound, or evidence of venous thrombosis.[] A chest radiograph showed cardiomegaly, a right lower lobe infiltrate and a small right pleural effusion.[]

  • Eisenmenger Syndrome

    Small pericardial/left pleural effusion and no pulmonary embolism were noted (Figure.3). Figure 1.[] A third heart sound as well as hepatosplenomegaly or a pulsatile liver occur with right heart failure. 4.2.[] Small pericardial/left pleural effusion and no pulmonary embolism was noted. Right atrium (RA). Table 1.[]

  • Hypoventilation

    effusion.[] A pulsatile liver develops if tricuspid regurgitation is severe. Ascites may occur but is unusual. The systolic murmur of tricuspid valve regurgitation may be present.[] […] disease affecting the thorax, decreased response of the respiratory center to carbon dioxide, or a reduced amount of functional lung tissue, as in atelectasis, emphysema, and pleural[]

  • Cardiac Amyloidosis

    Pericardial and bilateral pleural effusions were also noted.[] liver and 1 bilateral lower extremity pitting edema.[] effusions T1 mapping : subendocardial T1 relaxation time may be shortened in cardiac amyloidosis; considered an early feature of cardiac amyloid involvement C Gd : diffuse[]

  • Jugular Venous Distention

    effusions: Fluid that has accumulated outside the lungs in the pleural space (HF causes right-sided pleural effusions much more than left-sided) Here is a chest X-ray showing[] Tricuspid regurgitation, if significant, will be accompanied by a pulsatile liver (feel over the lower costal margin).[] Right-sided congestion may result in hepatosplenomegaly, jugular venous distention, edema, ascites, and/or pleural effusions.[]

  • Pulmonary Hypertension

    Pleural effusions . Gross exertional dyspnoea. Exertional syncope . Sudden cardiac death .[] The signs of right ventricular failure include a high-pitched systolic murmur of tricuspid regurgitation, hepatomegaly, a pulsatile liver, ascites, and peripheral edema.[] Complications Complications of IPAH include the following: Advanced right-sided heart failure with hepatic congestion Pedal edema Pleural effusions Ascites Worsening dyspnea[]
