  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    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.[] The liver may be large and pulsatile. There is usually a single first heart sound that may be increased in intensity.[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    Hepatojugular reflux and pulsatile liver are signs of RV failure with systemic venous congestion. In severe disease, ascites can also be present.[] Hepatomegaly liver pulsatility if there is significant associated tricuspid regurgitation.

  • Hypoventilation

    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.[]

  • Atrial Myxoma

    Hepatomegaly was present, with the pulsatile liver palpated 6 cm below the right coastal margin, there was ascites and bowel sounds were present and normoactive.[]

  • Ebstein Malformation

    The symptoms of right heart failure like pulsatile liver, ascites, raised jugular venous pulse are all seen in the patients.[] Pulsatile liver, raised jugular venous pressure, oedema over ankles and legs, dyspnea are common findings in the patient.[]
