26 Possible Causes for Severe Recurrent Orthostatic Hypotension, Sudden Death

  • Syncope

    However, a syncopal episode associated with normal sinus rhythm may be due to several disorders such as orthostatic hypotension, vasovagal or carotid sinus reflexes, or even[] Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is the most common cause of sudden cardiac death in adolescents. 48 Young age and syncope are risk factors for sudden cardiac death among these[] […] syncope. 54 ORTHOSTATIC HYPOTENSION Treatment of orthostatic hypotension includes education and lifestyle modifications, such as slowly transitioning from a supine or sitting[]

  • Amyloidosis

    Orthostatic hypotension can be severe and difficult to manage. Fitted waist-high elastic stockings and midodrine are helpful.[] Sudden deaths attributable to cardiac amyloidosis outside the operating room are not uncommon. 1,2,4–7 Between 1982 and 1986, 810 patients who had sudden cardiac deaths underwent[] The leading causes of cardiac death are HF and sudden death due to asystole or pulseless electrical activity, against which implantable cardioverter-defibrillators are rarely[]

  • Systemic Amyloidosis

    recurrent inflammation. 57 Supportive treatment of specific symptoms Although symptoms of dysautonomia are rare in AA amyloidosis, severe orthostatic hypotension may lead[] Complex ventricular arrhythmias are associated with an increased risk of sudden death in AL, 8 and, in our preliminary experience with conventional high-dose dexamethasone[] Death was due to cardiac amyloidosis in 75% of the 393 patients who died, including sudden death in 25%.[]

  • Orthostatic Syncope

    Although symptom recurrence on follow-up was lower in patients with more severe orthostatic hypotension, the clinical significance of this finding needs to be further defined[] death. 5,18,20,21 Syncope and Sudden Death Although the etiology of syncope is benign in the majority of patients, syncope may be the harbinger of sudden death.[] Effects of orthostatic hypotension on cognition in Parkinson disease. Neurology 2017, 88:17-24 Connolly S and others.[]

  • Micturition Syncope

    Syncope is usually not recurrent; however, recurrent micturition syncope has been reported with bladder neck obstruction, severe chronic orthostatic hypotension, and paroxysmal[] Over a mean of 15.3 months, no recurrent micturition syncope or sudden death occurred in the entire group.[] Syncope must be differentiated from vertigo, coma, drop attacks, dizziness, sudden cardiac death, and seizures.[]

  • Cardiac Amyloidosis

    Orthostatic hypotension can be severe and difficult to manage. Fitted waist-high elastic stockings and midodrine are helpful.[] In our work, studying a sudden death caused by cardiac amyloidosis and diagnosed only with post-mortem exams, we present a modified Congo Red staining used with the purpose[] In some cases, the occlusion of these small vessels can also lead to conduction disturbances and may represent an important risk factor for sudden death in this cohort.[]

  • Primary Amyloidosis

    Orthostatic hypotension can be severe and difficult to manage. Fitted waist-high elastic stockings and midodrine are helpful.[] Here, we present a case of previously undiagnosed amyloidosis presenting with sudden death.[] [Article in English, Portuguese] Abstract Cardiac amyloidosis is a disease with a gloom life expectancy after the beginning of the symptomatic phase, usually with sudden death[]

  • Familial Dysautonomia

    The latter leads to severe hypotension and may later trigger syncopes due to orthostatic hypotension.[] Sudden unexplained deaths have been reported in 13% [corrected] of Familial Dysautonomia (FD) subjects.[] ) and gastrostomy tube placement; labile BP with orthostatic hypotension, supine hypertension, and several hypertensive crises per week; syncopal episodes necessitating pacemaker[]

  • Orthostatic Hypotension

    A 71-year-old man, who was diagnosed with familial amyloidosis type I, was admitted for treatment of severe orthostatic hypotension associated with recurrent syncopal attacks[] […] cardiac death or death due to ventricular fibrillation (ICD-9 410–414 and ICD-10 I21-I24, I46, I49, R96).[] Abstract A 60-year-old male with recurrent syncopal attacks presented with orthostatic hypotension on the head-up tilt test.[]

  • Dysautonomia

    Severe autonomic dysfunctions occur: alacrymia (loss of tear secretion), dysphagia, hypothermia, orthostatic hypotension, loss of fungiform papillas on tongue.[] death attributable to XPA.[] Since autonomic dysfunction can lead to cardiac arrhythmias and even sudden death, it is of major importance to be aware of this association and to properly diagnose and treat[]
