Background: Cirrhosis is a very common ailment in India mostly caused by alcoholism, viral hepatitis and malnutrition. The clinical picture of patients with cirrhosis is dominated by the classical complications such as ascites, bleeding from esophageal varices, portal hypertension and encephalopathy. Cardiovascular abnormalities have been reported by several investigators. Methods: It is a cross sectional study done on 60 patients admitted to NIMS Medical College, Jaipur between Jan. 2013 to… 

Tables from this paper

Cardiovascular dysfunction in patients of cirrhosis of liver

TLDR
Diastolic dysfunction and QTc interval prolongation are both related with the severity of liver cirrhosis and are major criteria of cirrhotic cardiomyopathy.

Echocardiographic study of left ventricular structure and functions in patients with chronic liver disease and its correlation to disease severity

TLDR
The clinical picture of patients with cirrhosis is dominated by the classical complications such as ascites, bleeding from esophageal varices, portal hypertension, and encephalopathy.

Study of Cardiac Abnormalities in Patient with Cirrhosis of Liver

TLDR
Diastolic dysfunction was the most common cardiac abnormality found on echocardiography in patients with cirrhosis of liver, which will adversely affect morbidity and mortality in these patients.

Association of N- terminal Pro Brain Natriuretic Peptide with Echocardiographic Measures of Diastolic Dysfunction in Cirrhosis

TLDR
Increased serum NT-ProBNP levels in cirrhosis of liver have a positive correlation with echocardiographic measures of diastolic dysfunction of the heart but it is not a good tool for screening for cirrhotic cardiomyopathy.

Prevalence and clinical presentation of cirrhotic cardiomyopathy: A single centre experience from southern India

TLDR
CCM is commoner in males and is independent of the etiology of cirrhosis, comorbidity and severity of liver disease, and is related to diastolic dysfunction and prolonged QTc interval.

A Clinical Study of Cardiovascular Dysfunction in Patients of Cirrhosis of Liver.

TLDR
Diastolic dysfunction is a major criteria of cirrhotic cardiomyopathy which can be diagnosed by electro and echo cardiography and found QTc prolongation more in severe degree of Cirrhosis MELD score III (7 out of 10) 70%, than moderate (40%) MELD scores II and mild and mild (20%)MELD score I of cardiac QTC prolongation.

Diastolic Dysfunction and Severity of Cirrhosis in Nonalcoholic Cirrhotic Patients

TLDR
According to the relation between severity of cirrhosis and diastolic dysfunction, cardiac assessment in all child B and C cirrhotic patients is recommended.

Evidence of functional and structural cardiac abnormalities in cirrhotic patients with and without ascites

TLDR
It is speculated that neurohumoral overactivity, known to stimulate cardiac tissue growth, may challenge the heart, promoting fibrosis and exerting a further hindrance to ventricular relaxation in patients with cirrhosis experiencing episodes of ascites.

[Clinical investigation of Q-T prolongation in hepatic cirrhosis].

TLDR
The prolonged Q-Tc became normal in 17 of the 20 patients undergoing liver transplantation and became shorter in 3 cases one year after the operation.

Role of cardiac structural and functional abnormalities in the pathogenesis of hyperdynamic circulation and renal sodium retention in cirrhosis.

TLDR
It is concluded that contractile dysfunction is present in cirrhosis and is aggravated by a sodium load; an increased pre-load in the pre-ascitic patients compensates for the cardiac dysfunction; and in ascitic patients, a reduced afterload, manifested as systemic arterial vasodilatation, compensating for a reduced pre- load and contractiles dysfunction.

Q‐T interval prolongation in cirrhosis: Prevalence, relationship with severity, and etiology of the disease and possible pathogenetic factors

TLDR
Q‐T interval is frequently prolonged in patients with cirrhosis, regardless of the etiology of the disease, worsens in parallel with the severity of the Disease, and may have an important prognostic meaning.

QT Interval Analysis in Patients With Chronic Liver Disease: A Prospective Study

TLDR
Qt dispersion and corrected QT dispersion parameters were better mortality indicators than other QT interval parameters and also may give additional prognostic information in patients with chronic liver disease.

Relationship between model for end-stage liver disease score and left ventricular function in patients with end-stage liver disease.

What is QT interval prolongation?

TLDR
Patients at risk of drug-induced QT interval prolongation are identified and the identification of patients at risk may help to prevent these events.
