  1. 1. Congestive Heart Failure Congestive Heart Failure William Herring, M.D. © 2002 In Slide Show mode, to advance slides, press spacebar or click left mouse button
  2. 2. Congestive Heart Failure Causes of Coronary artery disease Hypertension Cardiomyopathy Valvular lesions AS, MS L to R shunts
  3. 3. Congestive Heart Failure Clinical Usually from left heart failure Shortness of breath Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea Orthopnea Cough Right heart failure Edema
  4. 4. Left Atrial Pressures Correlated With Pathologic Findings Normal 5-10 mm Hg Cephalization 10-15 mm Kerley B Lines 15-20 Pulmonary Interstitial Edema 20-25 Pulmonary Alveolar Edema > 25
  5. 5. Pulmonary Circulation Physiology Very low pressure circuit Pulmonary capillary bed only has 70cc blood Yet, it could occupy the space of a tennis court if unfolded Therefore, millions of capillaries are “resting,” waiting to be recruited
  6. 6. Keeping the Lungs Dry Pulmonary capillary hydrostatic pressure is low — about 7 mm Hg Plasma colloid oncotic pressure is high — about 28 mm Hg Normal osmotic tendency to dehydrate the interstitium and alveoli
  7. 7. Pressure and Flow Pressure = Flow x Resistance Normally, resistance is so low that flow can be increased up to 3x normal without increase in pressure
  8. 8. Pulmonary Interstitial Edema X-ray Findings Thickening of the interlobular septa Kerley B lines Peribronchial cuffing Wall is normally hairline thin Thickening of the fissures Fluid in the subpleural space in continuity with interlobular septa Pleural effusions
  9. 9. Pulmonary Interstitial Edema
  10. 10. Kerley B Lines B=distended interlobular septa Location and appearance Bases 1-2 cm long Horizontal in direction Perpendicular to pleural surface
  11. 11. Kerley B Lines are short, white lines perpendicular to the pleural surface at the lung base.
  12. 12. Kerley A and C Lines A=connective tissue near bronchoarterial bundle distends Location and appearance Near hilum Run obliquely Longer than B lines C=reticular network of lines C Lines probably don’t exist
  13. 13. Kerley A and C Lines form a pattern of interlacing lines in the lung
  14. 14. Peribronchial Cuffing Interstitial fluid accumulates around bronchi Causes thickening of bronchial wall When seen on end, looks like little “doughnuts”
  15. 15. Peribronchial cuffing results when fluid-thickened bronchial walls become visible producing ”doughnut-like” densities in the lung parenchyma
  16. 16. Fluid in The Fissures Fluid collects in the subpleural space Between visceral pleura and lung parenchyma Normal fissure is thickness of a sharpened pencil line Fluid may collect in any fissure Major, minor, accessory fissures, azygous fissure
  17. 17. Fluid in the major or minor fissure (shown here) produces thickening of the fissure beyond the pencil- point thickness it can normally attain
  18. 18. Pleural Effusion Laminar effusions collect beneath visceral pleura In loose connective tissue between lung and pleura Same location for “pseudotumors”
  19. 19. Inner margin of the rib starts here Aerated lung stops here Laminar pleural effusions can be difficult to see. Aerated lung should normally extend to the inner margin of the ribs. The white band of fluid seen here (white arrow) is a laminar effusion, separating aerated lung from the inner rib margin.
  20. 20. Cephalization A Proposed Mechanism If hydrostatic pressure >10 mm Hg, fluid leaks in to interstitium of lung Compresses lower lobe vessels first Perhaps because of gravity Resting upper lobe vessels “recruited” to carry more blood Upper lobes vessels increase in size relative to lower lobe
  21. 21. Cephalization means pulmonary venous hypertension, so long as the person is erect when the chest x-ray is obtained.
  22. 22. Left Atrial Pressures Correlated With Pathologic Findings Normal 5-10 mm Hg Cephalization 10-15 mm Kerley B Lines 15-20 Pulmonary Interstitial Edema 20-25 Pulmonary Alveolar Edema > 25
  23. 23. Pulmonary Edema Types Cardiogenic Neurogenic Increased capillary permeability
  24. 24. Congestive Heart Failure X-ray patterns Interstitial Alveolar
  25. 25. Congestive Heart Failure Pulmonary interstitial edema Thickening of the interlobular septa Kerley B lines Peribronchial cuffing Wall is normally hairline thin Thickening of the fissures Fluid in the subpleural space in continuity with interlobular septa Pleural effusions
  26. 26. Congestive Heart Failure Pulmonary alveolar edema Acinar shadow Outer third of lung frequently spared Bat-wing or butterfly configuration Lower lung zones more affected than upper
  27. 27. Pulmonary Alveolar EdemaPulmonary Interstitial Edema In pulmonary alveolar edema, fluid presumably spills over from the interstitium to the air spaces of the lung producing a fluffy, confluent “bat-wing” like pattern of disease.
  28. 28. Pulmonary Alveolar Edema Clearing Generally clears in 3 days or less Resolution usually begins peripherally and moves centrally
  29. 29. Differential Diagnosis Kerley B lines and Peribronchial cuffing Cardiac 30% Renal 30% ARDS None
  30. 30. Differential Diagnosis Distribution of Pulmonary Edema Cardiac Even 90% Renal Central 70% ARDS Peripheral in 45% Even in 35%
  31. 31. Differential Diagnosis Air Bronchograms Cardiac 20% Renal 20% ARDS 70%
  32. 32. Differential Diagnosis Pleural Effusions Cardiac 40% Renal 30% ARDS 10%
  33. 33. Left Atrial Pressures Correlated With Pathologic Findings Normal 5-10 mm Hg Cephalization 10-15 mm Kerley B Lines 15-20 Pulmonary Interstitial Edema 20-25 Pulmonary Alveolar Edema > 25
