169 Possible Causes for Pulmonary Systolic Murmur, X-Ray Abnormal

  • 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] , genetic conditions Diagnostic method Echocardiography, Doppler, X-ray Prevention Screening at birth, high index of suspicion in neonates at risk Treatment NSAIDs, surgery[en.wikipedia.org] A heart murmur occurs in the pulmonary area; the murmur may be continuous, systolic with a short diastolic component, or only systolic, depending on the pulmonary artery pressure[msdmanuals.com]

  • Eisenmenger Syndrome

    DIAGNOSTIC TESTING, PHYSICAL FINDINGS, AND ICD-9-CM CODING Diagnostic testing: Diagnostic testing for Eisenmenger syndrome includes: • Complete blood count (CBC); • Chest x-ray[secure.ssa.gov] Along the left sternal border systolic murmur can be heard, and early pulmonary systolic shock.[remedyland.com] Ejection systolic murmur audible along the left sternal border.[patient.info]

  • Right Heart Endocarditis

    Increased flow across the pulmonary or aortic valve causes a midsystolic crescendo-decrescendo (ejection systolic) murmur.[msdmanuals.com] Initial tests usually include a chest X-ray and a heart tracing (an electrocardiogram, or ECG).[patient.info] Murmurs Most left-to-right shunts and obstructive lesions cause systolic murmurs.[msdmanuals.com]

  • Large Ventricular Septal Defect

    […] vascular resistance decreases left to right shunt and converts systolic murmur in the one-sided murmur.[remedyland.com] Tests may include: A chest X-ray An ECG (also called an EKG or electrocardiogram), which measures and records the heartbeat An echocardiogram, which uses sound waves (ultrasound[summitmedicalgroup.com] , 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]

  • Liver Metastasis

    Primary splenic angiosarcoma (PSA) is an unusual and highly malignant vascular tumour with a high rate of metastatic. Moreover, the research on prognosis of the disease is poor. The epidemiology, etiology, clinical diagnosis and treatment of the disease remain challenging, because case reports of the disease are few[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Valve Stenosis

    The physician injects a contrast solution into the artery and takes X-rays to check for blockage and other abnormalities.[wexnermedical.osu.edu] Sixteen patients were asymptomatic with pulmonary systolic murmurs, although 6 patients presented with dyspnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] To confirm the diagnosis, your doctor might order any of the following tests: Chest X-ray : The test provides the images of the internal tissues, organs, and bones.[gleneaglesglobalhospitals.com]

  • Pulmonary Atresia

    Imaging studies such as X-rays and magnetic resonance imaging may reveal a slightly enlarged heart and abnormal formation of pulmonary vessels.[symptoma.com] 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[amboss.com] X Ray imaging helps doctors guide the catheter to the correct spot.[zofranlawsuitguide.com]

  • Left to Right Cardiac Shunt

    They may be noted on routine testing to have an abnormal chest x-ray or an abnormal EKG and may have atrial fibrillation.[marmur.com]

  • Malignant Carcinoid Syndrome

    BACKGROUND: Somatostatin analogues are the mainstay of therapy for malignant carcinoid syndrome. There is clear evidence that the once monthly intramuscular formulation, Octreotide LAR, controls symptoms of carcinoid syndrome, and recent data also suggests an antitumour effect. There is limited data on prolonged[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    A specialist doctor will explain and carry out the procedure using X-ray images to find the abnormal blood vessel(s) and treat them if appropriate.[web.archive.org] The characteristic apical systolic murmur may be absent in patients with severe MR, due to the abrupt and severe elevation of left atrial pressure.[doi.org] Chest X-ray and thoracic CT showed ground glass opacities or consolidation spreading from the hilar area to the peripheral area, suggesting central redistribution.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
