Chemical compound and disease context of Heart Murmurs


Gene context of Heart Murmurs

  • Time-frequency analysis of heart murmurs. Part I: Parametric modelling and numerical simulations [12].
  • Fifty consecutive patients (36 male, 14 female, mean age 28 years) who had heart murmurs and clinical and radiographic evidence of straight upper dorsal spine (straight back syndrome, SBS) underwent detailed clinical, electrocardiographic, roentgenographic, and echocardiographic evaluation [13].
  • We concluded that the absence of a flap sign (valve-like openings of the defects) affects the development of the heart murmur of ASD found in the neonatal period [14].
  • The classic diagnostic triad of fever, cardiac murmur, and positive blood cultures are not always present [15].
  • Clinicians should maintain a high index of suspicion for dilated cardiomyopathy in any patient with cardiac murmur and systematic symptoms [16].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Heart Murmurs

  • In a control group of 40 age- and sex-matched patients (26 male, 14 female, mean age 29.5 years), who also had heart murmurs but lacked straight upper dorsal spine, only 7 (17.5%) had MVP and none had BAV [13].
