80 Possible Causes for Pulsatile Liver

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    There may be giant C-V waves in the jugular pulse and a palpably (and sometimes visibly) pulsatile liver on abdominal exam.[] The liver may be large and pulsatile. There is usually a single first heart sound that may be increased in intensity.[]

  • Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

    Jugular venous distension and hepatomegaly occur with heart failure, sometimes causing a pulsatile liver later in the disease state.[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    Hepatojugular reflux and pulsatile liver are signs of RV failure with systemic venous congestion. In severe disease, ascites can also be present.[] Pallor, engorged, and pulsatile neck veins and central cyanosis were present on general physical examination.[] Abdominal examination revealed a firm, non-tender liver having a sharp margin, and measuring 7 cm below costal margin with a span of 12 cm, and the left lobe measuring 9 cm[]

  • Acute Aortic Regurgitation

    Abstract Management considerations for dealing with a patient with acute regurgitation of the aortic valve have been emphasized. Recognition and treatment of the most usual causes of acute aortic regurgitation have been described and the emphasis placed on early surgical treatment in the appropriate patient. In[…][]

  • Aortic Valve Insufficiency

    Aortic regurgitation (AR) is characterized by diastolic reflux of blood from the aorta into the left ventricle (LV). Acute AR typically causes severe pulmonary edema and hypotension and is a surgical emergency. Chronic severe AR causes combined LV volume and pressure overload. It is accompanied by systolic[…][]

  • Congenital Aortic Insufficiency

    Abstract Aortic insufficiency may be either acquired or congenital. A 46-year-old male had a congenital pathology which resulted in aortic insufficiency due to the presence of a fibrous band that stretched from the non-coronary cusp to the aortic wall. The patient underwent successful aortic valve replacement. At[…][]

  • Acromegaly

    Random serum GH is not a reliable test for diagnosis of acromegaly due to the pulsatile nature of GH secretion.[] However, acromegalic patients presenting with uncontrolled diabetes may have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease giving falsely low IGF-I levels. 1 The OGTT is the most specific[]

  • Tricuspid Valve Disease

    Hepatojugular reflux, pulsatile liver, and signs of hepatic dysfunction also may be present.[] The liver is tender and pulsatile.[] The liver may be large and pulsatile. There is usually a single first heart sound that may be increased in intensity.[]
