Murmurs of aortic regurgitation


Epidural hematoma in CT

 Epidural hemoatomas (EDH) are almost always preceded by head trauma (as child hit in the side of head with football.And may have a "lucid interval" where he looks okay).

Epidural hemoatoma has a higher mortality than a subdural, because obviously this is an ARTERY. And so will be under high pressure- forming that "biconcave" appearence on CT.
The most common site of EDH is the temporoparietal region, where the middle meningeal arteryis lacerated.

CT Findings:
* Typical appearance is a biconvex, elliptical, extra-axial fluid collections.
* Acute EDH may contain both a hyperattenuating clot and a swirling lucency (believed to represent a mixture of active bleeding and the serum remaining after previous clot formation).
* Subacute EDH becomes homogeneously hyperattenuating.
* Chronic EDH is at least partly hypoattenuating as the clot undergoes breakdown and resorption.

Cardiovascular effects of Squatting position

Squatting has which of the following cardiovascular effects?
  • a.It decreases ventricular filling
  • b.It increases the murmur of aortic insufficiency
  • c.It decreases the murmur of mitral regurgitation
  • d.It decreases the murmur of ventricular septal defect
  • e.It has the opposite effect of passive leg raising
  • f.It has the same effect as amyl nitrite

The answer is : (b).
Squatting like passive legraising are act to increase ventricular filling. Therefore, they increase blood flow through the heart and increase the murmurs of ech of following : aortic insufficiency, ventricular septal defect, and mitral regurgitation. The hypotensive inhalation agent amyl nitrite decreases the murmurs of AI, VSD, and MR.
