105 Possible Causes for Prominent V-Waves

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    Physical examination findings include jugular venous distension with a prominent v-wave, hepatomegaly and, rarely, a soft systolic regurgitant murmur can be heard that increases[heart.bmj.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] Heart sounds and murmurs: High-pitched pansystolic murmur, most prominent in the fourth intercostal space in the left parasternal region.[patient.info]

  • 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] 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] Distended neck veins with raised and/or prominent JVP and visible a or v waves. 3rd/4th heart sounds and pansystolic murmur of tricuspid regurgitation over right heart.[patient.info]

  • Right Ventricular Disorder

    Pulsus alternans may be present in patients with severe left ventricular failure, and the jugular veins may be distended, with a prominent V wave reflecting tricuspid regurgitation[emedmd.com] 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]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Distended neck veins with raised and/or prominent JVP and visible a or v waves. 3rd/4th heart sounds and pansystolic murmur of tricuspid regurgitation over right heart.[patient.info] In patients with considerable tricuspid regurgitation, a prominent systolic pulsation of the liver, attributable to an enlarged right atrial V wave, is often noted.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

    Physical examination findings sometimes observed in PH and right ventricular (RV) dysfunction include: an elevated jugular venous pressure with prominent A waves (due to increased[content.onlinejacc.org] RV stiffness) and V waves (due to tricuspid regurgitation [TR]); Kussmaul’s sign (increased jugular venous pressure with inspiration, due to a noncompliant RV or significant[content.onlinejacc.org]

  • Cardiac Beriberi

    "V" wave, apical impulse was felt in sixth intercostal space.[jdrntruhs.org] […] volume, collapsing and pistol shot sounds were heard over large arteries, blood pressure was 80/10 mm of Hg, temperature was 100 F, jugular venous pressure was elevated with prominent[jdrntruhs.org]

  • Ostium Primum Atrial Septal Defect

    If MR is present, the findings of ASD may be modified Prominent v wave in JVP LV type apex IE may occur (unlike secundum ASD) ECG Incomplete RBBB pattern in v1 as in secundum[heartpearls.com]

  • Coarctation of the Aorta

    We report on a young girl with polysyndactyly, coarctation of the aorta, and tongue hamartomas. These features are similar to those reported in individuals with variant forms of orofaciodigital syndrome known as congenital heart defects, hamartomas of the tongue and polysyndactly (CHDHTP: OMIM 217085) [Örstavik[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypoventilation

    Advanced disease Patients with advanced disease develop signs of right ventricular failure (cor pulmonale) and may have elevated jugular venous pressure with a prominent V[emedicine.medscape.com] wave, lower-extremity edema, and hepatomegaly.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    Examination: JVP 14 cm, prominent V waves and exaggerated Y descent. Hepatosplenomegally, peripheral oedema.[scmr.org]
