129 Possible Causes for Hemothorax, Pneumothorax on Chest X-Ray

  • Pneumothorax

    Diagnosis of pneumothorax A chest x-ray is used to diagnose a pneumothorax, though a CT scan is sometimes used.[] 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).[] A chest x-ray should be ordered early in the evaluation of a patient with a suspected pneumothorax.[]

  • Rib Fracture

    We present a case of delayed hemothorax bleeding from phrenic artery injury in a 24-year-old woman.[] X-ray Multiple rib fractures are accompanied by a small pleural effusion - likely a haemothorax Rib fracture with pneumothorax - Chest X-ray Hover on/off image to show/hide[] A delayed massive hemothorax after simple rib fracture is rare.[]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    These tests are as follows: Chest X-ray (may show other causes for shortness of breath like heart failure or a pneumothorax ) Electrocardiogram (ECC, EKG - tachycardia and[] 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.[]

  • Catamenial Pneumothorax

    It is part of the thoracic endometriosis syndrome, which includes catamenial hemothorax, catamenial hemoptysis, and pulmonary endometriosis.[] A 45-year-old nonsmoking woman with repeated coughing and dyspnea on effort was admitted to our hospital diagnosed with right-sided pneumothorax on chest X-ray.[] It is the most common form of thoracic endometriosis syndrome, which includes catamenial hemoptysis, catamenial hemothorax, catamenial hemopneumothorax, and endometriosis[]

  • Dissecting Aortic Aneurysm

    Thorax study showed dissection of the arch and descending aorta extending inferiorly up to the abdominal aorta with left hemothorax and hemomediastinum and collapse of the[] […] false lumen [2] Imaging studies Chest radiography: Initial imaging technique if it is readily available at the bedside Widening of the mediastinum is the classic finding Hemothorax[] The chest computed tomography showed a large amount of left hemothorax and mediastinal hematoma with aortic dissection involving the descending thoracic and abdominal aorta[]

  • Pneumopericardium

    Fifty-five patients had minimal hemopneumothorax and 50 patients had mild hemothorax; 85 patients had significant hemothorax and 54 patients had significant hemopneumothorax[] Twenty days after the procedure, the patient complained of shortness of breath and was found to have a 30 % apical left pneumothorax on chest X-ray as a not unusual complication[] The initial chest X-ray after implantation showed adequate lead position and no evidence of pneumothorax.[]

  • Endometriosis

    We report a case of bilateral catamenial hemothorax in a patient with recurrent thoracic endometriosis.[] Chest X-ray imaging showed 50% pneumothorax. A right-sided chest tube was placed, and after the procedure, a chest X-ray image showed expansion of the right lung.[] Right-sided hemothorax and recurrent abdominal pain in a 34-year-old woman. Chest . 1993 Apr. 103(4):1239-40. [Medline] . Mounsey AL, Wilgus A, Slawson DC.[]

  • Pleuritic Pain

    Hemothorax [ edit ] Blood also can collect in the pleural space. This is called hemothorax .[] The sudden onset of pleuritic chest pain may be caused by a pneumothorax; a chest x-ray with expiratory views is needed to make this diagnosis.[] It also could find hemothorax. This occurs when blood gets in the pleural space. It can be caused by a chest injury, chest surgery, or lung cancer.[]

  • Tension Pneumothorax

    […] other wound (hole 2/3 tracheal diameter) /- exit wound - Unequal breathsounds - ABG's: decreased pO2 - Air-tight dressing sealed on 3 sides - Chest tube - Surgery Massive Hemothorax[] Management points not to be missed - Use the history and physical exam to determine the site of the suspected tension pneumothorax, if a chest x-ray has not been performed[] Other forms of pneumothorax may be treated differently, but a trauma-induced tension pneumothorax or hemothorax almost always requires insertion of a chest tube.[]

  • Traumatic Pneumothorax

    Eighty-one patients with pneumothorax and/or hemothorax were subdivided into two groups.[] An x-ray machine uses a computer to take pictures of your chest and lungs. Healthcare providers check for a pneumothorax that did not show up on a chest x-ray.[] Injury to the chest is the most common cause of hemothorax.[]
