78 Possible Causes for Right Ventricular Hypokinesis

  • Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome

    Right ventricular overload was defined on the basis of right ventricular dilatation, hypokinesis, paradoxical septal motion and/or pulmonary hypertension.[] The percentage of patients with right ventricular overload did not change significantly after non-invasive ventilation (43.3-41.6%; P 0.24).[]

  • Bochdalek Hernia

    On her previous 2-dimensional echocardiogram she had mild to moderate right-ventricular hypokinesis, ejection fraction of 55%, and pulmonary hypertension.[] A stress echocardiogram showed an ejection fraction of 60% in the right ventricle, hypokinesia, an abnormal left-ventricular relaxation, and pulmonary artery systolic pressure[]

  • Right Ventricular Dilatation

    Ten of 11 patients with right ventricular hypokinesis had a pulmonary embolism.[] The grading system of hypokinesis utilized to describe left ventricular wall motion abnormalities is not used in right ventricular hypokinesis.[] […] dysfunction (right ventricular hypokinesis, paradoxical septal motion, or McConnell's sign).[]

  • Ephedra

    A repeat right ventricular biopsy 2 months after the first admission showed no evidence of myocarditis.[] One month into therapy, an echocardiogram demonstrated improved left ventricular function with only mild global hypokinesis.[]

  • Pericardiocentesis

    A case of profound hypoxemia caused by right ventricular hypokinesis precipitated by pericardial tap is reported.[] However, right-to-left shunting can also follow pericardiocentesis.[] Pulmonary embolus, congenital heart disease and pericardial tamponade are well-recognized causes of right-to-left shunting.[]

  • Uhl Anomaly

    […] enlargement and hypokinesis of the right ventricle, tricuspid valve insufficiency, and mild pulmonary valve insufficiency).[] ventricular dysplasia with severe enlargement and hypokinesis of the right ventricle, tricuspid valve insufficiency, and mild pulmonary valve insufficiency).[] […] ventricle Minor Mild global right ventricular dilatation and/or ejection fraction with a normal left ventricle Mild segmental dilatation of the right ventricle Regional right[]

  • Renal Embolism

    It may show signs of right ventricular strain or right ventricular hypokinesis. Cardiac troponins - can be indicative of right heart strain.[] ventricular hypokinesis on echocardiography [ 2 ] .[] Some patients with dyspnoea or right heart failure have severe pulmonary hypertension due to silent recurrent PE (chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension).[]

  • Right-Sided Heart Failure

    CMR demonstration of extensive right ventricular fibrosis with associated dilatation and hypokinesis was a key finding for prognosis and management of the patient.[] We present the case of a patient with severe but stable pulmonary sarcoidosis and new onset right sided heart failure despite only mild elevations of pulmonary artery pressure[]

  • Thrombolytic Therapy

    […] and a higher short-term mortality rate. 18 Evidence of right ventricular dysfunction includes the following: New-onset hypokinesis or akinesis Right ventricular dilation[] Right ventricular free-wall hypokinesis with apical sparing (the McConnell sign) Paradoxical movement of the interventricular septum Newly increased right ventricular systolic[] A meta-analysis showed that close to 37% of hemodynamically stable patients with pulmonary embolism had echocardiographic evidence of right ventricular dysfunction on presentation[]

  • Right to Left Shunt

    This can be the result of obstruction of pulmonary blood flow by pulmonary embolus 4 (Patient 3), increased transmural pressures in asthma, 5 right ventricular hypokinesis[] […] following right ventricular infarction 6 or coronary artery bypass grafting, 7 or as a result of elevated P a co 2 in hemidiaphragmatic paresis. 8 However, in similar cases[]
