320 Possible Causes for Premature Atrial Contractions

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    The concept of "structural plasticity" has emerged as a potential mechanism in neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases such as drug abuse, depression, and dementia. Chronic alcoholism is a progressive neurodegenerative disease while the person continues to abuse alcohol, though clinical and imaging studies show[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Atrial Arrhythmia

    Premature Supraventricular Contractions Also called “premature atrial contractions” (PACs), they happen when the atria contract too soon, causing the heart to beat out of[texasheart.org] Types of Supraventricular Arrhythmias Supraventricular arrhythmias begin in the atria Types of supraventricular arrhythmias include: Premature atrial contractions (PACs) Early[my.clevelandclinic.org] Atrial Flutter Atrial flutter happens when the atria beat very fast, causing the ventricles to beat inefficiently as well.[texasheart.org]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) is an infection that often occurs in immunocompromised patients and has a high mortality rate. In recent years, the reported incidence of IPA in the context of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has seemingly increased. The combination of factors such as long-term[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Multifocal Atrial Tachycardia

    In several patients there seemed to be a transition from multifocal premature atrial contractions through chaotic atrial tachycardia to atrial fibrillation.[circ.ahajournals.org] Six patients had 3 to 6 premature atrial contractions per minute. No adverse effects were noted, and arterial blood gases before and after therapy were comparable.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Atrial premature beats Atrial premature beats (APB), or premature atrial contractions (PAC), are common episodic impulses.[msdmanuals.com]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    BACKGROUND: The classic cardiovascular complication of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is cor pulmonale or right ventricular (RV) enlargement. Most studies of cor pulmonale were conducted decades ago. OBJECTIVES: This study sought to examine RV changes in contemporary COPD and emphysema using[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Atrial Infarction

    Arrhythmias are quite common in the setting of atrial infarctions and include paroxysmal AF, wandering atrial pacemaker, premature atrial contractions and runs of atrial tachycardia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] tachycardia with or without atrial premature contractions Sinus arrest Thromboembolic phenomena 84% Pulmonary emboli Systemic emboli Atrial rupture 4.5% Hemodynamic consequences[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] TABLE 1 Atrial infarction complications Complication Incidence Rhythm disturbances 61%–74% Supraventricular tachycardia Atrial fibrillation Wandering atrial pacemaker Sinus[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Graves Disease

    […] fibrillation, and premature ventricular contractions, and hypertension.[en.wikipedia.org] […] diffusely enlarged (usually symmetric), nontender thyroid, lid lag, excessive lacrimation due to Graves' ophthalmopathy, arrhythmias of the heart, such as sinus tachycardia, atrial[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Familial Isolated Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Stage I occurs in the second and third decades and is characterized by absence of symptoms, normal heart size, sinus bradycardia, and premature atrial contractions.[gwumc.edu] Common etiologies include chronic untreated atrial fibrillation with rapid ventricular response and frequent (several thousand daily) premature ventricular contractions.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Hyperthyroidism

    Sudden deterioration of visual functions warrants comprehensive ophthalmic examination with evaluation for systemic association. Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is an uncommon disorder that can present with neurological deficits. We report a young female patient aged 28 years who presented with severe headache[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Fabry Disease

    atrial contractions, premature ventricular contractions and premature junctional contractions. [3] Supraventricular tachycardias include atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter[en.wikipedia.org] It is also appropriate to classify by site of origin: Atrial arrhythmia [ edit ] Sinus bradycardia Premature atrial contractions (PACs) Wandering atrial pacemaker Atrial tachycardia[en.wikipedia.org] AV nodal reentrant tachycardia Junctional rhythm Junctional tachycardia Premature junctional contraction Ventricular arrhythmia [ edit ] Premature ventricular contractions[en.wikipedia.org]
