90 Possible Causes for Pulmonary Hypertension, Pulsatile Liver

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    A cross-sectional study was performed of consecutive transthoracic echocardiographic studies of patients with pre-capillary pulmonary hypertension (PH).[] 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.[]

  • Eisenmenger Syndrome

    In this study two patients are presented, one with common atrioventricular canal and pulmonary hypertension and the other with recurrent pulmonary thromboembolism; both improved[] A third heart sound as well as hepatosplenomegaly or a pulsatile liver occur with right heart failure. 4.2.[] Eisenmenger syndrome, a type of congenital heart defect, causes severe pulmonary hypertension.[]

  • Atrial Myxoma

    Pulmonary hypertension was also present.[] Large atrial myxoma mimicking severe mitral stenosis associated with right heart enlargement and severe pulmonary hypertension.[] Due to pulmonary hypertension, contrast enhanced computed tomography (CT) was proposed as further work-up examination.[]

  • Aortic Valve Insufficiency

    Moderate or severe tricuspid regurgitation may result from pulmonary hypertension . Pulmonary hypertension is high blood pressure in the pulmonary artery .[] liver) Gerhardt's sign (enlarged spleen) Duroziez's sign (systolic and diastolic murmurs heard over the femoral artery when it is gradually compressed) Hill's sign (A 20[] These may be due to: Elevated blood pressure in the pulmonary artery (pulmonary hypertension) Previous surgery as a child to repair a severe heart defect Usually, no treatment[]

  • Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

    The purpose of this review was to outline the mechanisms and to review recent literature on pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) medications in group 5 pulmonary hypertension[] Jugular venous distension and hepatomegaly occur with heart failure, sometimes causing a pulsatile liver later in the disease state.[] Pulmonary arterial hypertension; Sporadic primary pulmonary hypertension; Familial primary pulmonary hypertension; Idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension; Primary pulmonary[]

  • Jugular Venous Distention

    A global view of pulmonary hypertension . Lancet Respir Med 216 (04) 306-322 6 Hoeper MM, Ghofrani H-A, Grünig E. et al. Pulmonary Hypertension .[] Tricuspid regurgitation, if significant, will be accompanied by a pulsatile liver (feel over the lower costal margin).[] Primary pulmonary hypertension (ie, not caused by a pulmonary or cardiac disorder) is discussed elsewhere.[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    Primary pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale represent forms of precapillary pulmonary hypertension due to intrinsic lung disease.[] liver, a loud pulmonic component of the 2nd heart sound, or evidence of venous thrombosis.[] Hepatojugular reflux and pulsatile liver are signs of RV failure with systemic venous congestion. In severe disease, ascites can also be present.[]

  • Pulmonary Hypertension

    Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a rise of blood pressure and resistance in the pulmonary vasculature.[] The signs of right ventricular failure include a high-pitched systolic murmur of tricuspid regurgitation, hepatomegaly, a pulsatile liver, ascites, and peripheral edema.[] Pulmonary hypertension Synonyms Pulmonary arterial hypertension, Kaufman, Matthew H.; Latha Stead; Feig, Robert (2007).[]

  • Ascites

    (Pulmonary hypertension syndrome, Waterbelly) By Billy M.[] Heart failure - distended jugular veins, palpable thrills and murmurs, enlarged & pulsatile liver; constrictive pericarditis - pulsus paradoxus c.[] Pulmonary hypertension can also lead to heart failure and ascites.[]

  • Hypoventilation

    However, the severity of pulmonary hypertension in OHS is variable.[] 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.[] Pulmonary hypertension (PH) with kyphoscoliosis-related alveolar hypoventilation is uncommon, so little is known about the effectiveness of treatments for this condition.[]
