New-onset cardiac murmur in the unstable patient

Michele Oppizzi, Marco Ancona

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Sudden hypotension associated with new-onset cardiac murmur may be due to different causes, including mechanical complications of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, acute mitral insufficiency during infective endocarditis, acute aortic regurgitation by aortic dissection, prosthetic valve thrombosis, and dynamic left ventricular outflow obstruction. Transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography allow a rapid diagnosis at the bedside.
