84 Possible Causes for Focal Atelectasis

    General imaging differential considerations include: aspiration pneumonia segmental / focal atelectasis pulmonary haemorrhage pneumonia fat embolism pulmonary laceration Promoted[radiopaedia.org] atelectasis, pulmonary hemorrhage. 9.[slideshare.net] […] worsens, and infection may occur. 13 The first signs of pulmonary contusion on chest X-ray are focal or diffuse lung opacities, which classically appear within the first[ahcmedia.com]

    […] plasma cells Swelling and increased mucus production impair bronchociliary elevator, and may lead to secondary bacterial infection; small airways may become occluded causing focal[pathologyoutlines.com] atelectasis; in severe disease, this is more widespread with distal airways plugged by fibrinopurulent debris If process is prolonged, obliterative bronchiolitis with irreversible[pathologyoutlines.com]

  • Atelectasis

    Obstructive atelectasis is usually focal. Atelectasis of premature infants, which is caused by a deficiency of pulmonary surfactant, is not shown. From Damjanov, 2000.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Sixty of the 80 patients with signs of NPA on lung ultrasound also had signs of NPA on CXR (termed focal-type atelectasis), and the other 20 patients had signs of NPA on chest[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] pulmonary MIBG uptake corresponding to atelectasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Thoracic Surgery

    Cardiothoracic surgery (also known as thoracic surgery) is the field of medicine involved in surgical treatment of organs inside the thorax (the chest)—generally treatment of conditions of the heart ( heart disease ) and lungs ( lung disease ). In most countries, cardiac surgery (involving the heart and the great[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Mucoid Impaction of the Bronchus

    Glycosaminoglycans were isolated from mucus of patients with chronic bronchitis and mucoid impaction of the bronchus, whose contents were approximately 56 mumoles and 80 mumoles of hexosamine per g of dry weight of mucus respectively. Electrophoretic and chemical characterization and enzymatic susceptibility[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection

    Air may be trapped distal to the sites of occlusion, causing the characteristic hyperinflation of bronchiolitis, which, when absorbed, results in multiple areas of focal atelectasis[virology-online.com]

  • Cystic Fibrosis

    Nasal irrigations with antibiotics are used to eradicate Pseudomonas aeruginosa from the upper airways in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) and thereby avoid lung colonisations; nevertheless, the efficacy is uncertain. The aim of this study was to investigate the accessibility and durability of solutions in the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
