fukprometric  why couldn't it be something cirrhosis related given his IVDU? I was thinking that the increased systolic pressure was a sign of portal HTN from cirrhosis so he'd also have a portosystemic shunt, but that was wrong +2  
schep  I picked portosystemic shunt, too. Looking at the question now, I should have focused on the fact that he is IV drug user, has a fever and has signs of right heart failure (back up of blood into the liver) which makes me think endocarditis +1  
jaramaiha  Portal HTN wouldn't give him a fever, but those septic emboli would. TBH to go 10+ years as IVDU w/ no heart conditions, he seems to have played his luck, but luck has run out :( +2

ivypoison  Hepatic pulsation is wave from aorta in systolic. Normally (no tricuspid insufficiency), no congestion,no pulsation. In tricuspid insufficiency, ventricular extrasystole (blood from ventricle regurgitate back to vena cava and hepatic vein rather than to lung) + wave from aorta -> hepatic pulsation. Also weak S2 +1
