Flashcards in Murmurs Deck (10):
Murmur heard in early diastole in aortic area. Best heard on end-expiration. Radiates to 4th intercostal space
Ejection systolic murmur, heard in the aortic area, radiates to the carotids
Pansystolic, tricuspid area, radiating to 4th intercostal space
Pansystolic, mitral area, radiating to axilla
Mid diastolic, mitral area, radiating to axilla
When would you hear a late systolic murmur?
In mitral valve prolapse
In coarctation of the aorta
A mid-diastolic murmur at the apex, enhanced when the patient lies in the left lateral position
Marfan's syndrome and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome are associated with which murmur?
A 35-year-old lady presents to cardiology for investigation of a pansystolic murmur. She has hypermobility of large and small joints bilaterally and marked striae on her abdomen and chest.
Widespread joint hypermobility along with skin changes indicated by striae should make you think of a collagen disorder - these findings are commonly present in Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
