108 Possible Causes for Pulmonary Systolic Murmur, Right Heart Endocarditis

  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus

    Course and Complications  Ejection systolic murmur at birth (due to pulmonary hypertension)  continuous murmur after a few weeks  Development of Pulmonary arterial hypertension[slideshare.net] It is important to correct PDA because it can lead to congestive heart failure and a disease of the right side of the heart (called cor pulmonale) later in life.[texasheart.org] If a PDA is small, the doctor may not treat it right away. Antibiotics will be given in some cases to prevent infection of the heart until the PDA is closed.[nationwidechildrens.org]

  • Large Ventricular Septal Defect

    […] vascular resistance decreases left to right shunt and converts systolic murmur in the one-sided murmur.[remedyland.com] […] failure Infective endocarditis (bacterial infection of the heart) Pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in the lungs) leading to failure of the right side of the heart[ufhealth.org] , loudest at the fourth intercostal space, usually with a thrill, and a loud and widely split pulmonic component of S2 With fixed pulmonary hypertension, diastolic murmur[quizlet.com]

  • Pulmonary Valve Stenosis

    Sixteen patients were asymptomatic with pulmonary systolic murmurs, although 6 patients presented with dyspnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Right ventricular hypertrophy Heart failure Irregular heartbeats Pulmonary valve stenosis is diagnosed in the childhood, but if the disease is mild, it remains unnoticed.[gleneaglesglobalhospitals.com] Signs Soft pulmonary systolic murmurs are more easily heard with the patient lying down.[patient.info]

  • Right Heart Endocarditis

    Increased flow across the pulmonary or aortic valve causes a midsystolic crescendo-decrescendo (ejection systolic) murmur.[msdmanuals.com] Our study showed that surgical intervention and concomitant left heart endocarditis are positive and negative prognostic factors for outcomes after right heart endocarditis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Injection drug use and right sided endocarditis. Heart. 2003;89(5):577–81. PubMed PubMedCentral CrossRef Google Scholar 16. Frontera JA, Gradon JD.[link.springer.com]

  • Atrial Septal Defect

    MurmursPulmonary ejection systolic murmur – Increased pulmonary flow • Tricuspid murmur – is heard over left sternal edge louder on inspiration • Graham-Steell murmur[slideshare.net] Rupture of SVA (with progressive heart failure and left-to-right shunting or endocarditis) is the main cause of death and rarely occurs before age 20 years in congenital SVA[emedicine.medscape.com] There is further turbulent flow into the pulmonary artery causing the systolic murmur.[easyauscultation.com]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    Diagnosis is made by detection of a new systolic murmur, and by the documentation of giant "V-waves" on the pulmonary capillary wedge tracing.[brown.edu] Emboli - from left sided mural thrombosis, vegetative endocarditis, or paradoxic emboli from the right side of heart through a patent foramen ovale.[library.med.utah.edu] Third and fourth heart sound, systolic murmur if mitral regurgitation or ventricular septal defect develops, pericardial rub.[patient.info]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    […] edema and/or shock; a systolic murmur may not always be appreciated.[doi.org] […] posteromedial papillary muscle more often than anterolateral papillary muscle because of its singular blood supply. 470, 471 Acute severe mitral regurgitation is characterized by pulmonary[doi.org]

  • Infective Endocarditis

    […] emboli is eventually present in 87% of cases. 95,197 Signs of tricuspid insufficiency (systolic regurgitant murmur louder with inspiration, large V waves, or a pulsatile[doi.org] Ross Right heart endocarditis: Clinical and echocardiographic features Am Heart J, 107 (1984), pp. 759 [2.] J.M. Gatell, M. Sasal, J.M. Miró, J. Mensa, L. Zamora, J.[archbronconeumol.org] Abstract Involvement of both right and left heart chambers with infective endocarditis is extremely rare.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Eisenmenger Syndrome

    Along the left sternal border systolic murmur can be heard, and early pulmonary systolic shock.[remedyland.com] Precordial signs of ES are loud (often palpable) second heart sound and right ventricular heave.[orpha.net] Ejection systolic murmur audible along the left sternal border.[patient.info]

  • Bacterial Endocarditis

    […] emboli is eventually present in 87% of cases. 95,197 Signs of tricuspid insufficiency (systolic regurgitant murmur louder with inspiration, large V waves, or a pulsatile[doi.org] Key points about bacterial endocarditis Bacterial endocarditis is an infection of the heart’s inner lining or heart valves.[saintlukeshealthsystem.org] About 90 percent of patients will have heart murmurs, but murmurs may be absent in patients with right-sided heart infections.[healthcentral.com]
