133 Possible Causes for Prominent A-Wave, Pulmonary Systolic Murmur, Sudden Death

  • Eisenmenger Syndrome

    ECG of Eisenmenger syndrome Usually there is right ventricular hypertrophy with prominent P waves.[] There were 21 (13%) documented deaths, of which 8 (5%) were sudden death.[] Elevated jugular venous pressure and prominent "v" wave in right heart failure and severe tricuspid regurgitation.[]

  • Pulmonary Valve Disease

    The jugular pulse may have a prominent "A" wave. If the pulmonary regurgitation component is severe, the heart may be enlarged, pulsatile and painful.[] Signs Soft pulmonary systolic murmurs are more easily heard with the patient lying down.[] The pressure wave form in the right atrium shows the characteristic prominent systolic V wave with rapid descent only in the most severe cases.[]

  • Pulmonary Valve Stenosis

    ECG of pulmonary valve stenosis Electrical axis deviation to right or right ventricular hypertrophy, prominent P wave.[] Pulmonary valve stenosis signs and symptoms may include: Chest pain Tiredness Fainting Shortness of breath Heart murmur Bluish color of the skin (cyanosis) Sudden death Causes[] Sixteen patients were asymptomatic with pulmonary systolic murmurs, although 6 patients presented with dyspnea.[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    On electrocardiogram, there was right axis deviation, p-pulmonale, features of right ventricular hypertrophy along with presence of prominent Q waves in leads II, III and[] Split second heart sound with loud pulmonary component. Systolic ejection murmur with a sharp ejection click over the pulmonary artery (advanced sign).[] In the United States, approximately 25,000 sudden deaths occur per year from heart failure associated with pulmonary emboli.[]

  • Pulmonary Hypertension

    […] for conditions that can produce pulmonary hypertension (murmurs, collagen disease, valve pathology, VTE, OSA, alcohol consumption, chronic respiratory disease) Examination prominent[] Clinical signs include right ventricular (parasternal) heave, a loud pulmonary second heart sound, murmur of pulmonary regurgitation, systolic murmur of tricuspid regurgitation[] A prominent A wave may be observed in the jugular venous pulse. A right-sided fourth heart sound (S 4 ) with a left parasternal heave may be auscultated.[]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    Lateral MI explains the presence of prominent R wave (R S) in V1. Ann Noninvasive Electrocardiol. 2015 ; 20 :570–577. doi: 10.1111/anec.12260.[] The primary outcome was the composite of sudden death or death from ventricular tachyarrhythmia at 90 days (arrhythmic death).[] Signs Signs of impaired myocardial function 3 rd / 4 th heart sounds Pan systolic murmur Pericardial rub Pulmonary oedema – crepitations in the lungs Hypotension Quiet first[]

  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus

    It can lead to congestive heart failure and sudden death. Heart failure in PDA develops because of an excessive workload on the heart.[] Course and Complications  Ejection systolic murmur at birth (due to pulmonary hypertension)  continuous murmur after a few weeks  Development of Pulmonary arterial hypertension[] death 4.[]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    Right heart catheterization will show prominent “V waves” in the pulmonary capillary wedge pressure tracing.[] We have recently experienced 2 cases of sudden death after bone fracture surgery, in which AMI and pulmonary thromboembolism were clinically suspected as causes of death.[] Diagnosis is made by detection of a new systolic murmur, and by the documentation of giant "V-waves" on the pulmonary capillary wedge tracing.[]

  • Acute Cor Pulmonale

    Clinical findings associated with pulmonary heart disease include jugular venous distension, prominent v-wave in the jugular venous pulsation, narrow S-2 split or no split[] death.[] Split second heart sound with loud pulmonary component. Systolic ejection murmur with a sharp ejection click over the pulmonary artery (advanced sign).[]

  • Pulmonary Atresia

    With progressive right ventricular failure, hepatomegaly and prominent “a” wave of jugular venous pulse may be observed.[] We report a case of paroxysmal complete atrioventricular block that raises the possibility of an additional mechanism of sudden death.[] Auscultatory finding: harsh systolic murmur that is best heard over Erb's point and left upper sternal border ; single second heart sound Diagnostics Pulse oximetry : SpO2[]
