63 Possible Causes for Prominent V-Waves

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    V wave In some patients, a pansystolic murmur Diminished peripheral pulse volume secondary to impaired forward blood flow; patients with this sign may have relative hypotension[emedicine.medscape.com] Jugular venous pressure is elevated with a prominent systolic 'v' wave. Right ventricular impulse is hyperdynamic and may be thrusting in quality.[patient.info] Catheterization findings include a prominent right atrial c-v pressure wave during ventricular systole.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    […] a or v waves, and cyanosis may be seen. the heart and lung are intricately related. whenever the heart is affected by disease, the lungs will follow and vice versa. pulmonary[allnurses.com] Physical findings may include: Jugular venous distension: Prominent jugular V wave, indicating the presence of tricuspid regurgitation Peripheral (ankle) edema: The best sign[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On inspection, an increase in chest diameter, labored respiratory efforts with retractions of chest wall, distended neck veins with prominent a or v waves, and cyanosis may[medictests.com]

  • Right Ventricular Disorder

    The R wave will be prominent in V 1 with deep S waves in the lateral precordial leads indicating right ventricular hypertrophy.[phaonlineuniv.org] The electrocardiogram in advanced stages of pulmonary hypertension and right ventricular failure may reveal right axis deviation, RBBB, p wave amplitude of more than 2.5 mm[phaonlineuniv.org]

  • Coarctation of the Aorta

    Abstract The combination of right aortic arch with aberrant left brachiocephalic artery and aortic coarctation is very rare. Here, we report the case of a 3.1-kg neonate with multiple malformations who received detailed preoperative anatomical definition by chest computed tomography (CT) scan and eventually[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Left-sided heart failure The heart's pumping action moves oxygen-rich blood as it travels from the lungs to the left atrium, then on to the left ventricle, which pumps it to the rest of the body. The left ventricle supplies most of the heart's pumping power, so it's larger than the other chambers and essential for[…][heart.org]

  • Cardiac Cirrhosis

    Prominent v waves with rapid y descent indicate tricuspid regurgitation.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] a wave and v wave tricuspid regurgitation may diminish or reverse the S wave pure right ventricular dysfunction will have a preserved S/D relationship with the amplitude[radiopaedia.org] Right atrial pressure recordings reveal large a waves, indicating elevated right atrial pressure that may appear as presystolic liver pulsations.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Central Venous Pressure Increased

    wave: Cardiac tamponade Prominentvwave: Right ventricular failure, Tricuspid regurgitation, Atrial septal defect with or without mitral regurgitation Diminished ‘vwave[epomedicine.com] Prominent v waves Tricuspid regurgitation - called cv or v waves and occurring at the same time as systole (a combination of v wave and loss of x descent); there may be earlobe[patient.info] wave – TR Absent x descent – AF Exaggerated x descent – pericardial tamponade, constrictive pericarditis Sharp y descent – severe TR, constrictive pericarditis Slow y descent[lifeinthefastlane.com]

  • Distended Neck Veins

    Prominent "v" wave : (Tricuspid regurgitation). Cannon wave : (Heart block, Premature ventricular contraction). 11.[slideshare.net] In constrictive pericarditis and restrictive cardiomyopathy x and y descents can be extremely prominent and rapid and the corresponding a and v wave ascents are notably abrupt[depts.washington.edu] (no unifocal atrial depolarisation) Atrial fibrillation Large 'v' wave (c–v wave) Tricuspid regurgitation Absent 'x' descent Tricuspid regurgitation (sometimes 'x' wave is[en.wikipedia.org]

  • 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[acphospitalist.org] […] a or v waves, and cyanosis may be seen. the heart and lung are intricately related. whenever the heart is affected by disease, the lungs will follow and vice versa. pulmonary[allnurses.com] Clinical Signs Of Cor :Pulmonale Accentuated A wave of the jugular venous pulsations Prominent jugular V wave, indicating the presence of tricuspid regurgitation Palpable[slideshare.net]
