The sounds heard over the cardiac region produced by the functioning of the heart. There are four distinct sounds: the first occurs at the beginning of SYSTOLE and is heard as a "lubb" sound; the second is produced by the closing of the AORTIC VALVE and PULMONARY VALVE and is heard as a "dupp" sound; the third is produced by vibrations of the ventricular walls when suddenly distended by the rush of blood from the HEART ATRIA; and the fourth is produced by atrial contraction and ventricular filling.

Enlargement of the HEART, usually indicated by a cardiothoracic ratio above 0.50. Heart enlargement may involve the right, the left, or both HEART VENTRICLES or HEART ATRIA. Cardiomegaly is a nonspecific symptom seen in patients with chronic systolic heart failure (HEART FAILURE) or several forms of CARDIOMYOPATHIES.
Recording of the moment-to-moment electromotive forces of the HEART as projected onto various sites on the body's surface, delineated as a scalar function of time. The recording is monitored by a tracing on slow moving chart paper or by observing it on a cardioscope, which is a CATHODE RAY TUBE DISPLAY.

A potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia that is characterized by uncoordinated extremely rapid firing of electrical impulses (400-600/min) in HEART VENTRICLES. Such asynchronous ventricular quivering or fibrillation prevents any effective cardiac output and results in unconsciousness (SYNCOPE). It is one of the major electrocardiographic patterns seen with CARDIAC ARREST.

Penetrating atherosclerotic ulcer at the proximal aorta complicated with cardiac tamponade and aortic valve regurgitation. (1/412)

A 56-year-old man had a penetrating atherosclerotic ulcer originating in the proximal ascending aorta, which is an unusual case of penetrating aortic ulcer complicated with the aortic valve regurgitation and cardiac tamponade. This hemodynamically unstable patient was successfully treated by conservative management to control his blood pressure and was also monitored closely with follow-up imaging studies.  (+info)

Mechanism of biphasic response of renal nerve activity during acute cardiac tamponade in conscious rabbits. (2/412)

Renal sympathetic nerve activity (RSNA) responses to acute cardiac tamponade were studied in conscious rabbits with all reflexes intact (Int) or after either surgical sinoaortic denervation (SAD) or administration of intrapericardial procaine (ip-Pro) or intravenous procaine (iv-Pro). In Int rabbits, the mean arterial pressure (MAP) remained relatively constant until the pericardial volume reached 7. 7 ml, whereas the RSNA increased to 226% [compensated cardiac tamponade (CCT)], then, at a pericardial volume of 9.3 ml, the MAP fell sharply and RSNA decreased to 34% [decompensated cardiac tamponade (DCT)]; 1 min after cessation of pericardial infusion, an intravenous injection of naloxone resulted in increases in both MAP and RSNA. In SAD rabbits, RSNA did not alter throughout CCT and DCT, but increased on injection of naloxone. In ip-Pro rabbits, RSNA increased during CCT but did not decrease during DCT, whereas, in iv-Pro rabbits, the RSNA response was similar to that in Int rabbits. These results indicate that RSNA responses to cardiac tamponade are biphasic, with an increase during CCT and a decrease during DCT. Sinoaortic baroreceptors are involved in mediating the increase in RSNA, whereas cardiac receptors may be involved in mediating the decrease in RSNA. An endogenous opioid may be responsible for the decrease in RSNA seen during DCT.  (+info)

Treatment of malignant pericardial effusion with 32P-colloid. (3/412)

Malignant pericardial effusion is usually treated only when signs of cardiac tamponade develop. Several methods of treatment have been reported with an overall response rate of approximately 75%. Since our initial study using intrapericardial 32P-colloid instillation as a treatment modality for pericardial effusion demonstrated a significant higher response rate, this study was conducted to further evaluate the efficacy of intrapericardial 32P-colloid in terms of response rates and duration of remissions. Intrapericardial instillation of 185-370 MBq (5-10 mCi) 32P-colloid in 36 patients with malignant pericardial effusion resulted in a complete remission rate of 94.5% (34 patients) whereas two patients did not respond to treatment due to a foudroyant formation of pericardial fluid. The median duration time was 8 months. No side-effects were observed. These results suggest that intrapericardial instillation of 32P-colloid is a simple, reliable and safe treatment strategy for patients with malignant pericardial effusions. Therefore, since further evidence is provided that 32P-colloid is significantly more effective than external radiation or non-radioactive sclerosing agents, this treatment modality should be considered for the management of malignant pericardial effusion.  (+info)

Central venous injuries of the subclavian-jugular and innominate-caval confluences. (4/412)

Injuries to the central venous system can result from penetrating trauma or iatrogenic causes. Injuries to major venous confluences can be particularly problematic, because the clavicle and sternum seriously limit exposure of the injury site. We report our institution's experience with central venous injuries of the subclavian-jugular and innominate-caval venous confluences. Significant injuries of the subclavian-jugular venous confluence frequently result from penetrating trauma, while injuries to the innominate-caval confluence are usually catheter-related. Median sternotomy provides adequate exposure of the innominate-caval confluence, while exposure of the subclavian-jugular venous confluence requires extension of the median sternotomy incision into the neck and resection of the clavicle. The literature is reviewed.  (+info)

Primary cardiac angiosarcoma associated with cardiac tamponade: case report. (5/412)

A 57-year-old male with primary cardiac angiosarcoma was initially admitted for cardiac tamponade. Pericardiocentesis was performed twice preoperatively, but the bloody pericardial fluid was cytologically negative for malignant cells. The tumor in the right atrium was resected during cardiopulmonary bypass. The resected tumor was 5.5x4.5x3.0cm in size and the diagnosis of cardiac angiosarcoma was made histologically. There were no tumor cells in the surgical margin. Unfortunately the patient died 3.5 months after surgery due to multiple recurrence in the pericardium. A suitable therapy for cardiac angiosarcoma is still controversial, but early antemortem diagnosis and more aggressive combined treatment should be considered.  (+info)

Risks of spontaneous injury and extraction of an active fixation pacemaker lead: report of the Accufix Multicenter Clinical Study and Worldwide Registry. (6/412)

BACKGROUND: The Telectronics Accufix pacing leads were recalled in November 1994 after 2 deaths and 2 nonfatal injuries were reported. This multicenter clinical study (MCS) of patients with Accufix leads was designed to determine the rate of spontaneous injury related to the J retention wire and results of lead extraction. METHODS AND RESULTS: The MCS included 2589 patients with Accufix atrial pacing leads that were implanted at or who were followed up at 12 medical centers. Patients underwent cinefluoroscopic imaging of their lead every 6 months. The risk of J retention wire fracture was approximately 5.6%/y at 5 years and 4.7%/y at 10 years after implantation. The annual risk of protrusion was 1.5%. A total of 40 spontaneous injuries were reported to a worldwide registry (WWR) that included data from 34 672 patients (34 892 Accufix leads), including pericardial tamponade (n=19), pericardial effusion (n=5), atrial perforation (n=3), J retention wire embolization (n=4), and death (n=6). The risk of injury was 0.02%/y (95% CI, 0.0025 to 0. 072) in the MCS and 0.048%/y (95% CI, 0.035 to 0.067) in the WWR. A total of 5299 leads (13%) have been extracted worldwide. After recall in the WWR, fatal extraction complications occurred in 0.4% of intravascular procedures (16 of 4023), with life-threatening complications in 0.5% (n=21). Extraction complications increased with implant duration, female sex, and J retention wire protrusion. CONCLUSIONS: Accufix pacing leads pose a low, ongoing risk of injury. Extraction is associated with substantially higher risks, and a conservative management approach is indicated for most patients.  (+info)

UHL's anomaly. (7/412)

Uhl's anomaly is a rare congenital hypoplasia of the right ventricular (RV) myocardium. It can be seen together with some other congenital anomalies. Here we first report a 16-year-old male patient with Uhl's anomaly which appears with cardiac tamponade.  (+info)

Long-term follow-up of idiopathic chronic pericardial effusion. (8/412)

BACKGROUND: A large idiopathic chronic pericardial effusion can be defined as a collection of pericardial fluid that persists for more than three months and has no apparent cause. We conducted a prospective study of the natural history and treatment of this disorder. METHODS: Between 1977 and 1992, we prospectively evaluated and enrolled patients with large idiopathic chronic pericardial effusion. We performed pericardiocentesis in most of the patients. We performed pericardiectomy when large pericardial effusion reappeared after pericardiocentesis. Follow-up ranged from 18 months to 20 years (median, 7 years). RESULTS: During the study period, we evaluated a total of 1108 patients with pericarditis, 461 of whom had large pericardial effusion. Twenty-eight of these patients (age range, 7 to 85 years; median, 61) had large idiopathic chronic effusion and were included in the study. The duration of effusion ranged from 6 months to 15 years (median, 3 years). At the initial evaluation, 13 patients were asymptomatic. Overt tamponade was found in eight patients (29 percent). Therapeutic pericardiocentesis, performed in 24 patients, was followed by the disappearance of or marked reduction in the effusion in 8. Five of the 24 patients underwent early pericardiectomy, and in 11 large pericardial effusion reappeared. Cardiac catheterization, performed in 16 patients, showed elevated intrapericardial pressure (4.75+/-3.79 mm Hg) and reduced transmural pressure (1.0+/-2.50 mm Hg) before pericardiocentesis. Both of these abnormalities in pressure improved significantly after pericardiocentesis. Pericardiectomy, performed in 20 patients, yielded excellent long-term results. At the end of the follow-up period, 10 patients had died, but none had died from pericardial disease. CONCLUSIONS: Large idiopathic chronic pericardial effusion is well tolerated for long periods in most patients, but severe tamponade can develop unexpectedly at any time. Pericardiocentesis alone frequently results in the resolution of large effusions, but recurrence is common and pericardiectomy should be considered whenever a large effusion recurs after pericardiocentesis.  (+info)

Both pulsus paradoxus and right ventricular diastolic collapse detected by two-dimensional echocardiography are noninvasive markers of impaired cardiac function in cardiac tamponade, yet the reliability of each may vary with the patients state of hydration. To examine the relative value of these noninvasive markers at various states of hydration, we studied five chronically prepared, conscious mongrel dogs during 37 episodes of cardiac tamponade at three different intravascular volumes. We continuously measured cardiac output (electromagnetic flowmeter), aortic blood pressure, right atrial blood pressure, intrapericardial pressure, and respirations. Intravascular volume was varied by adjusting the mean right atrial blood pressure to hypovolemic (-2 to -6 mm Hg), euvolemic (0 to 4 mm Hg), or hypervolemic (6 to 10 mm Hg) levels. The sensitivity and specificity of right ventricular diastolic collapse in predicting increases in intrapericardial pressure remained high at all levels of hydration. ...

Objective: Cardiac tamponade is a life-threatening clinical entity that requires an emergency treatment. Cardiac tamponade can be caused both by benign and malignant diseases. A variety of methods have been described for the treatment of these cases from needle-guided pericardiocentesis, balloon-based techniques to surgical pericardiotomy. The Authors report their experience in surgical management of cardiac tamponade and an exhaustive review of literature. Methods: This study involved 61 patients (37 males and 24 females) with an average age of 61.80 ± 16.32 years. All patients underwent emergency surgery due to the presence of cardiac tamponade. Results: Cardiac tamponade was caused by a benign disease in 57.40% of patients. In cancer patients group, lung cancer, breast cancer and malignant pleural mesothelioma were the most common neoplasms (17-27, 87%). The average preoperative size of pericardial effusion at M-2D echocardiography was 30.15 ± 5.87 mm. Postoperative complications were observed in
The patient had a pericardial effusion from penetrating chest trauma, causing cardiac tamponade. Cardiac tamponade is caused by fluid trapped in the pericardial space, compressing the heart, compromising ventricular filling, and therefore cardiac output.1 Acute traumatic cardiac tamponade presents with chest pain and respiratory distress.2 Becks triad may be present on exam, as it was in our case: muffled heart sounds, distended jugular veins, and hypotension.1 A narrow pulse pressure and pulsus paradoxus may also be observed.2 The diagnosis can be rapidly confirmed by bedside ultrasound.3 In traumatic cardiac tamponade, the treatment is thoracotomy in unstable or pulseless patientsor median sternotomy.4 Pericardiocentesis is indicated only if operative intervention is not immediately available.5 This patient was transferred directly to the operating room where a median sternotomy was performed. A 1 cm laceration to the right ventricle was identified and successfully repaired. The patient had ...

Cardiac tamponade is a condition characterized by an increased intrapericardial pressure resulting in impaired cardiac filling. An important hemodynamic feature is the equalization of intrapericardial and mean diastolic pressures in cardiac chambers. Consequently, stroke volumes are reduced, and an exaggerated ventricular interdependence occurs as a result of a reduced and fixed intracardiac space. This results in an increase in right heart filling and a decrease in left heart filling during spontaneous inspiration along with the opposite changes during expiration.1 Mild-to-moderate pericardial effusion can cause cardiac tamponade when it rapidly expands in a noncompliant pericardium,1 as occurred in this patient. When using 2-dimensional echocardiography, the grading of pericardial effusion is semiquantitative, based on the size of the echo-free space between the parietal and the visceral pericardium at end diastole.2 Although cardiac tamponade is a clinical and hemodynamic diagnosis, ...

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic multisystem disease of unknown cause which affects approximately 1% of the population. The typical characteristic of RA is persistent inflammatory synovitis which usually involves peripheral joints in a symmetric distribution. Systemic involvements of RA include pericarditis, pleuritis, vasculitis, entrapment neuropathy, interstitial lung disease and Sjogren and Felty syndromes. Echocardiographic and postmortem studies have shown that RA affects pericardium in nearly 50% of the patients. However, cardiac tamponade is a rare complication of RA. In this report, we present a surgically-treated 61-year-old female patient with cardiac tamponade secondary to loculated pericardial effusion.. ...

Hemodynamic parameters and blood flow (15-μm microspheres) to brain, heart, kidney, colon, stomach, liver, and temporalis muscle were measured. Arterial pressure and cardiac output rose, and blood flow to all major organs, except stomach, increased after volume expansion (n=17) by infusion of 20 ml/kg of dextran after tamponade. With nitroprusside (8-75 μg/min) after volume expansion (n=5), ventricular filling pressures were reduced to control levels, whereas the favorable effects of volume expansion on cardiac output, blood ...
Cardiac Tamponade occurs when there is compression of the heart due to the entry of fluid in the pericardial sac. The pericardial sac is a protective covering that surrounds the heart and allows the heart to expand naturally so that it can pump blood without any problem. According to Philips AED packages providers, when fluid, pus or blood begin to collect and enters the sac, the heart is compressed and prevents it from being able to pump blood. Normally, the sac can hold only about 100 ml of fluid before the heart gives out.. Causes. One possible cause of cardiac Tamponade is a hormonal condition called hypothyroidism where gland is not able to produce thyroid hormones T3 and T4 necessary for metabolism and physiologic functioning. However, this is not the most common cause. According to Philips FR3 supplies specialists, the most common cause is penetrating trauma to the heart. The condition may affect the heart directly or the blood vessels that supply it. What happens is that the blood floods ...
Question - Causes of Recurrent Cardiac Tamponade. Ask a Doctor about diagnosis, treatment and medication for Chest trauma, Ask an Addiction Medicine Specialist
Cardiac tamponade, also known as pericardial tamponade, is when fluid in the pericardium (the sac around the heart) builds up and results in compression of the heart. Onset may be rapid or more gradual. Symptoms typically include those of cardiogenic shock including shortness of breath, weakness, lightheadedness, and cough. Other symptoms may relate to the underlying cause. Common causes include cancer, kidney failure, chest trauma, and pericarditis. Other causes include connective tissue diseases, hypothyroidism, aortic rupture, and following cardiac surgery. In Africa, tuberculosis is a relatively common cause. Diagnosis may be suspected based on low blood pressure, jugular venous distension, pericardial rub, or quiet heart sounds. The diagnosis may be further supported by specific electrocardiogram (ECG) changes, chest X-ray, or an ultrasound of the heart. If fluid increases slowly the pericardial sac can expand to contain more than 2 liters; however, if the increase is rapid as little as 200 ...

In this case report, we describe the clinical dilemma regarding the postoperative anticoagulation management of a 60-year-old male who developed cardiac perforation during a CDT of an acute saddle PE. Early resumption of systemic heparin in such cases may help in clot resolution; however, it can worsen the hemopericardium. On the other hand, delaying restarting heparin may help in healing of the cardiac perforation but can lead to clot propagation. As the chest tube output was minimal initially, ...
A12-year-old girl with no significant previous cardiac history was transferred to our university hospital because of 1 week of high fever and dyspnea. On physical examination, the heart sounds were muffled, the heart rate was 110 bpm, the respiratory rate was 32 breaths per minute with dyspnea, and the blood pressure was 110/75 mm Hg. A chest radiograph revealed marked cardiac enlargement (Figure⇓, A). A CT demonstrated multiple cystic structures in the pericardial cavity, which were slightly enhanced by contrast medium (B). 2D echocardiography exhibited massive pericardial effusion with multiple moving cystic structures near the left atrial appendage and the apex (C and D). Because percutaneous needle aspiration yielded bloody pericardial fluid, massive hemorrhage from the cystic tissue was suspected. Three hours after admission, the patients blood pressure had fallen to 74/46 mm Hg. An emergency drainage and resection of the abnormal tissues was undertaken by median thoracotomy. ...

An 88 years-old woman admitted undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) because of severe aortic valve stenosis. Pre-procedural computed tomography demonstrated that annulus area was 345 mm2 (Figure 1A) and minimum diameter of Valsalva was 27.4 mm (Figure 1B). Calcification was present between the left atrium (LA) and aortic root (Figure 1C). Diameter of the lower limbs were suitable for transfemoral access. Based on these findings, transfemoral TAVR was performed under general anesthesia with transesophageal echocardiography guidance. After pre-dilatation using 20-mm balloon, a SAPIEN XT 23-mm (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, California) at 1 cm3 underfilling was successfully implanted under rapid pacing. However, after that, the patient became hemodynamically unstable and transesophageal echocardiography demonstrated pericardial effusion. Surgical repair was performed to achieve hemostasis and identified bleeding from the LA (Figure 1D). Post-procedural computed tomography showed ...

An 82-year-old man was taken to a local clinic following the occurrence of syncope. Chest roentgenography and computed tomography (CT) findings led to a suspicion of a ruptured aortic aneurysm, and the patient was immediately transferred to our hospital. Upon admission, his consciousness was clear and blood pressure was 74/47mmHg. Enhanced chest CT images demonstrated pericardial effusion and a saccular aneurysm with a maximum diameter of 5cm, which was associated with a thrombus in the distal aortic arch. An emergency operation was performed under a diagnosis of a ruptured distal aortic arch aneurysm and hemorrhagic cardiac tamponade. During the procedure, a hole was found in the lesser curvature of the aneurysm, which had directly ruptured into the pericardial space, and a graft replacement of the aortic arch was performed using selective cerebral perfusion. The patient was discharged 19 days after surgery without any postoperative complications ...

Electrical alternans may be present. When the word alternans is used, the underlying pathophysiology that is most often thought of is alternans due to motion of the heart and its shifting position in relationship to the surface electrodes. The pathophysiologic mechanism underlying the alternation in the height or amplitude of the QRS complex is the swinging or shifting or the electrical axis of the heart. It should be noted that there can also be P wave and T wave alternans attributable to the motion of the heart. While electrical alternans is frequently thought of in association with pericardial effusion, it should be noted that not all pericardial effusions cause electrical alternans, and that total electrical alternans (involving the p wave, QRS complex and the T wave) is present in just 5-10% of cases of cardiac tamponade. ...

ABSTRACT. Cardiac tamponade following sternal puncture is fatal and is caused by an anomaly such as foramen sterni, fragility of the bone, or high pressure exerted by doctors on the bone. Contact pressure associated with bone marrow aspiration is unknown; therefore, we examined the contact pressure resulting from bone marrow puncture for aspiration. Prescale, a pressure-sensitive film, was used for measurements. Contact pressure on wood surface at 2 heights, the knee and hip positions of the hematologists, was examined and was approximately 15 - 21 megapascals. The magnitude of the contact pressure did not change with the type of puncture needle. However, the contact pressure in the needle area at the hip position was higher than that at the knee position height, when doctors aspirated the bone marrow. Contact pressure resulting from bone marrow puncture was found to be high; therefore, hematologists should be aware of this force when dealing with patients.. 1. Introduction. Cardiac tamponade ...

This medical exhibit depicts thoracic aortic dissection with pericardial tamponade in a series of illustrations. Labeled blood vessel layers include the tunica adventitia (outer layer), tunica media (middle layer) and tunica intima (inner layer). Shows the intimal layer tear progressing from a balloon-like structure in the aortic arch to a rupture of the proximal aorta with bleeding into the pericardial cavity. This condition, pericardial (cardiac) tamponade, is life-threatening and greatly reduces the hearts ability to function.

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to produce a heavy tamponade with a specific gravity greater than 1.06 g/mL that was optically transparent, could be manufactured using simple processing, could be injected using standard clinical equipment, and would have appropriate biocompatibility. METHODS: Aerosil silica was added to a phenyl trimethicone and mixed via a roller, overhead stirring, and ultrasonics. The refractive index, visible absorbance, and shear viscosity were measured. The injectability of the solutions was evaluated using the Accurus Viscous Fluid Injection system. The tamponade efficiency was assessed using a model eye chamber and compared with that of Densiron 68, Oxane HD, and F6H8. The biocompatibility was evaluated in vitro and in vivo in rabbits. RESULTS: Tamponade agents were produced with specific gravities of 1.10, 1.11, 1.13, and 1.16 g/mL that had good optical clarity. Mixing using overhead stirring was sufficient to produce tamponade agents with shear viscosities in the ...

Cardiac tamponade arises due to equalisation of cardiac pressures leading to impaired biventricular filling. The pericardial sack has some elasticity which is quickly reached with fluid accumulation. Cardiac volume becomes smaller during systole and venous return shifts to cardiac systole to reduce cardiac output. Normally, systemic venous return to the right side of the heart increases with inspiration and pulmonary venous return to the left heart decreases with inspiration so that systemic arterial pressure normally falls by ,10 mmHg during inspiration.. In cardiac tamponade, the rigid pericardium prevents the free wall from expanding. Thus, the distension of the right ventricle is limited to the interventricular septum and this causes the septum to bulge to the left, reducing left ventricular compliance and contributing to further decreased filling of the left ventricle during inspiration. This leads to an exaggerated drop in systolic blood pressure in inspiration called pulsus paradoxus. Our ...
The diagnosis of cardiac tamponade due to dissection of an ascending aortic aneurysm in a middle-aged woman was not confirmed by the usual noninvasive and invasive procedures. The decision for surgery was based on clinical grounds only, resulting in an unnecessary delay of surgical intervention. Although some of the current noninvasive techniques seem to be most useful in the investigation of these patients, the clinical findings remain the cornerstone of a correct diagnosis.

The venous input matches the ventricular output by the end of systole, and the intra-pericardial space is once again full. When diastolic ventricular relaxation ensues, loss of blood from the atria does not relieve atrial pressure because the hydraulic action of the displaced pericardial fluid now impinges on the emptying atria. Right atrial communication with the engorged systemic venous reservoir also tends to maintain a high level of pressure in the atria, preventing the y-descent and often producing a y-ascent ...
