As already mentioned earlier, any overt deformity of the chest, for example kyphosis, scoliosis, pectus exacavatum and pectus carcinatum are to be noted as anyone these may displace the apex beat producing apparent cardiomegaly. Even pectus excavatum can cause functional systolic murmur at left sternal border due to pressure from without.

A large descending thoracic aneurysm can produce a thrusting pulsation in left sterna border called Thoracic jerk.
