Resumo

DIAZ, Juan C et al. Diaphragmatic elevation with collapse of the right atrium and symptoms of heart failure: a case report. Rev. Colomb. Cardiol. [online]. 2013, vol.20, n.1, pp.40-42. ISSN 0120-5633.

Diaphragmatic elevation is a disorder characterized by impaired contractile force of the muscle fibers of the diaphragm, which results in prolapse of abdominal structures into the chest cavity. In most cases, symptoms occur by the underlying lung parenchyma compression. The compression of cardiac structures is less frequent. We report the case of a female patient who developed signs and symptoms consistent with right heart failure and in whom several studies showed a diaphragmatic elevation with collapse of the right atrium as cause of her symptomatology.

Palavras-chave : heart failure; cardiomyopathy; atrial.
