40 Possible Causes for Pulsatile Liver, Rheumatic Heart Disease

  • Aortic Valve Insufficiency

    A young woman with aortic valve insufficiency secondary to rheumatic heart disease underwent replacement of her diseased aortic valve with her own pulmonary valve and replacement[] , due to hypertension, coronary artery disease, or another cause Endocarditis Rheumatic heart disease Some people with a leaky mitral valve don't require treatment.[] […] aortic regurgitation used to be rheumatic heart disease, but presently it is most commonly caused by bacterial endocarditis. [3] In developed countries, it is caused by dilation[]

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    […] pathologies, such as right ventricular dilatation, trauma, rheumatic heart disease, or infective endocarditis.[] With severe TR, there may be an enlarged liver detected on palpation of the right upper quadrant of the abdomen; the liver may be pulsatile on palpation and even on inspection[] The liver may be large and pulsatile. There is usually a single first heart sound that may be increased in intensity.[]

  • Congenital Aortic Insufficiency

PMC 3046187.[] Rheumatic fever (and subsequent rheumatic heart disease) is typically a complication of a group A strep infection that is not treated with antibiotics.[] In 2/3 of cases, the regurgitation is secondary to rheumatic heart disease, and may have a component of aortic stenosis.[]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    However, aortic stenosis due to a congenital disorder, calcification, prosthetic valve dysfunction, or rheumatic disease usually has a chronic course and is associated with[] […] is enlarged and may be tender or even pulsatile.[] […] hemodynamic adaptation of the heart.[]

  • Acute Aortic Regurgitation

    , due to hypertension, coronary artery disease, or another cause Endocarditis Rheumatic heart disease Some people with a leaky mitral valve don't require treatment.[] heart disease : most common cause of AR in developing countries Distortion or dilation of the ascending aorta and aortic root Connective tissue disorders (e.g., Marfan syndrome[] […] prevent rheumatic heart disease Avoid IV drugs, lowering the risk for heart valve infection Promptly treat medical conditions that can lead to the disorder There are other[]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Its many causes include: Coronary artery disease High blood pressure (hypertension) Heart valve disorders (including rheumatic heart disease) Congenital heart disorders Cardiomyopathy[] This could be attributed to the even higher incidence of rheumatic heart disease.[] Various forms of congenital heart disease such as ventricular septal defect (VSD), patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) or common AV canal Heart valve disease caused by past rheumatic[]

  • Endocarditis

    Previously, the main risk factor for IE was rheumatic heart disease, but research has since shown that other risk factors have gained prominence, including injection drug[] On examination, there was a loud holosystolic murmur, maximally audible in the epigastric space, and a pulsatile liver.[] All had rheumatic heart disease (RHD) and presented with prolonged fever. All had severe eccentric mitral regurigitation (MR).[]

  • Pulmonary Hypertension

    […] and left heart valvular disease.[] The signs of right ventricular failure include a high-pitched systolic murmur of tricuspid regurgitation, hepatomegaly, a pulsatile liver, ascites, and peripheral edema.[] liver Diastolic murmur Pulmonary regurgitation Hepatojugular reflux High central venous pressure Advanced PH with right ventricular failure Right ventricular S 3 (in 23%)[]

  • Myocarditis

    .- ) any condition in I51.4- I51.9 due to hypertension and chronic kidney disease ( I13.- ) heart disease specified as rheumatic ( I00 - I09 ) Complications and ill-defined[] Physical exam will look like congestive heart failure, with jugular venous distention, pulmonary rales, peripheral edema, pulsatile liver, and perhaps a laterally displaced[] heart disease lasts long (5-30) years probability for a chronic heart disease after an acute rheumatic fever is quite variale: 18-65% rheumatic fever shows a tendency to[]
