557 Possible Causes for Hemothorax

  • Chest Trauma

    In the past, VATS was used to evacuate traumatic-retained hemothorax.[] All the patients received video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) due to retained hemothorax or pneumothorax.[] Hemothorax is most commonly resulted from a closed chest trauma, while a tube thoracostomy (TT) is usually the first procedure attempted to treat it.[]

  • Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation

  • Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia

    In this report we present a case of a 39 year-old woman with recurrent epistaxis and family history of HHT who presented with right spontaneous hemothorax.[] Hemothorax and massive hemoptysis can occur with PAVMs given their fragile and abnormally structured walls and the turbulent blood flow through them.[] Both hemoptysis and hemothorax are described [ 56 , 57 ].[]

  • Rib Fracture

    We present a case of delayed hemothorax bleeding from phrenic artery injury in a 24-year-old woman.[] A delayed massive hemothorax after simple rib fracture is rare.[] Overall, 147 patients (30.5%) presented with at least 1 rib fracture and 59 subjects (12.2%) with delayed hemothorax.[]

  • Pleurisy

    hemothorax, especially in patients with bilateral and/or intractable hemothorax.[] Hemothorax [ edit ] Blood also can collect in the pleural space. This is called hemothorax .[] ., pleural effusion, pneumothorax, hemothorax). These conditions can cause difficulty breathing. Publication Review By: Stanley J. Swierzewski, III, M.D.[]

  • Pneumothorax

    Being on a ventilator also may increase risk for pneumothorax. 1 Answer A Chest trauma increases the risk for hemothorax (bleeding into the pleural cavity).[] This is how the X-ray appears when the chest is full of blood (right-sided hemothorax) seen here as cloudiness on the left side of the picture.[] Pneumothorax, chylothorax, hemothorax, and fibrothorax.

  • Total Parenteral Nutrition

    Improper placement may cause pneumothorax, vascular injury with hemothorax, brachial plexus injury or cardiac arrhythmia.[] […] with the insertion of the TPN catheter : Some of the complications associated with the insertion of the TPN catheter include an accidental and inadvertent pneumothorax, hemothorax[] Air embolism  pneumothorax  hemothorax Cardiac tamponade Injuries to arteries and veins Injury to thoracic duct Brachial plexus injury 52.  Early or nutrient related[]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    Autopsies showed massive unilateral hemothorax in both patients.[] This may be difficult to distinguish from secondary hemothorax with an intact pleura, but rupture typically has a considerably more rapid clinical evolution.[]

  • Penetrating Chest Trauma

    […] authors discuss mechanisms of injury, nursing assessment, and interventions for penetrating injuries resulting in cardiac rupture, cardiac tamponade, tension pneumothorax, hemothorax[] Blunt or penetrating trauma to the chest can cause several life-threatening conditions: open or closed pneumothorax, each with or without hemothorax; flail chest; pericardial[] Eighty to ninety percent of stab wounds to the heart result in acute tamponade, whereas delayed cardiac tamponade or hemothorax are rare, but hurtful for the patient.[]
