10 Possible Causes for Recurrent Respiratory Infections, Ventricular Septal Defect, Wide Pulse Pressure

  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus

    OBJECTIVE: This study aims to assess the clinical efficiency and safety of simultaneous transcatheter interventional treatment for perimembranous ventricular septal defect[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Peripheral pulses are bounding as the run-off into the pulmonary circulation drops the diastolic pressure and causes a wide pulse pressure.[patient.info] History:  Irritable, feed poorly, fail to gain weight and sweat excessively  Increased respiratory effort and respiratory rates  prone to develop recurrent upper respiratory[slideshare.net]

  • Scimitar Syndrome

    A 5-month-old boy was presented for surgical repair of scimitar syndrome associated with right lung hyperplasia, severe pulmonary hypertension, ventricular septal defect ([ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] and/or measure blood pressure in upper and lower extremities Palpate for loud heart sounds, parasternal heave, apical impulse and thrill.[learn.pediatrics.ubc.ca] Rarely, the disease may manifest with a small shunt, a cardiac murmur, and recurrent respiratory infections in children and adults.[orpha.net]

  • Acyanotic Congenital Heart Disease

    Cardiac anomalies which predispose to this type of compression include ventricular septal defect, patent ductus arteriosus, interruption of the aortic arch, and tetralogy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] pulse pressure Small – moderate PDA: Normal or LVH Large PDA: BVH May have cardiomegaly and increased PVMs, depending on size of shunt (see Chapter 18, Section IX.A, for[unboundmedicine.com] Decreased energy intake, increased energy requirements and recurrent respiratory infections may all contribute.[scialert.net]

  • Congenital Absence of Ductus Arteriosus

    Bharati S, Paul MH, Idriss FS, Potkin RT, Lev M (1975) The surgical anatomy of pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect: Pseudotruncus.[link.springer.com] Peripheral pulses are bounding as the run-off into the pulmonary circulation drops the diastolic pressure and causes a wide pulse pressure.[patient.info] Only 1 case was asymptomatic, while the others had recurrent respiratory tract infections. Additionally, 1 patient had hemoptysis and dyspnea.[appliedradiology.com]

  • Congenital Pulmonary Veins Atresia or Stenosis

    Many children with pulmonary atresia also have a ventricular septal defect (VSD), a hole in the tissue between the lower chambers of the heart.[chop.edu] […] and/or measure blood pressure in upper and lower extremities Palpate for loud heart sounds, parasternal heave, apical impulse and thrill.[learn.pediatrics.ubc.ca] respiratory infections or after lung transplantation should prompt the suspicion of pulmonary venous stenosis ( table 1 ).[err.ersjournals.com]

  • Congenital Heart Block

    We describe management of a patient with a prenatal diagnosis of absent pulmonary valve, tricuspid atresia, ventricular septal defect, and congenital heart block.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] pulse pressure Small – moderate PDA: Normal or LVH Large PDA: BVH May have cardiomegaly and increased PVMs, depending on size of shunt (see Chapter 18 , Section IX.A , for[unboundmedicine.com] […] or breathing symptoms such as cough, asthma or recurrent lung infections such as pneumonia.[coliccalm.com]

  • Congenital Pulmonary Vein Atresia or Stenosis

    Atrial septal defect, secundum. Posteroanterior (PA) chest radiograph. Condition Description: Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) Ventricular septal defect.[bcm.edu] […] and/or measure blood pressure in upper and lower extremities Palpate for loud heart sounds, parasternal heave, apical impulse and thrill.[learn.pediatrics.ubc.ca] Most cases present in infancy or childhood with recurrent respiratory infections or hemoptysis. Further, the diagnosis can often be difficult to make.[link.springer.com]

  • Multiple Types of Congenital Heart Defects 4

    What is a ventricular septal defect?[mottchildren.org] She had tachycardia and tachypnea and her blood pressure showed a wide pulse pressure. Pallor and grade 1 clubbing was present on general physical examination.[pubs.sciepub.com] She had history of bluish discolouration of lips and tongue which was more pronounced during crying; failure to thrive and recurrent episodes of respiratory tract infections[jpma.org.pk]

  • Kommerell Diverticulum

    Kommerell diverticulum is a rare phenomenon: Aberrant left subclavian artery in association with right aortic arch and ventricular septal defect.[scopemed.org] The pulses are bounding. The blood pressure has a wide pulse presssure. The apex beat may be displaced. There is a LV impulse.[bcm.edu] Respiratory symptoms included chronic cough, wheezing, recurrent upper respiratory tract infections, recurrent pneumonia, and exercise intolerance.[academic.oup.com]

  • Atypical Arterial Duct

    Coronary, systemic and pulmonary arteriovenous fistula, peripheral pulmonary stenosis and ventricular septal defect with aortic regurgitation and collateral vessels must be[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The precordium may be hyperactive and peripheral pulses are bounding with a wide pulse pressure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Large shunts may lead to failure to thrive, recurrent infection of the upper respiratory tract and congestive heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
