Dr. Seva Visc. CFs 1

Dr. Seva's NYCC Visceral Pathology 1st Exam Clinical Features

What are risk factors for cardiac hypertrophy? HTN and stenosis of valves
What condition gives dyspnea on exertion, orthopnea, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea, cough, hemoptysis? Left ventricular failure.
If left atrial pressure and pulmonary venous pressure are increased, the lung is congested and HLM's are present what happened? Left ventricular failure.
What happened if right atrial pressure and systemic venous pressure are increased? Right ventricular failure.
What gives clinical features of neck vein distention, elevated JVP, hepatomegaly & tender liver, spleenomegaly, hepato-abdomino-jugular reflex, ascities, peripheral pitting edema? Right ventricular failure.
What pathology gives clinical features of fatigue, dyspnea on exertion, palpitation d/t arrhythmia, repeated LRI in childhood, pansystolic murmur? VSD
Clinical features present: fatigue, dyspnea on exertion, palpitation d/t arrhythmia, repeated LRI in childhood, PHTN, Rt. ventricular hypertrophy, heart failure, paradoxical emboli, bacterial endocarditis, ejection systolic murmur. ASD
Clinical features present: premature infant, left ventricular hypertrophy and heart failure, decreased CO, PHTN, continuous machinery murmur. PDA
