189 Possible Causes for Mediastinal Shift

  • Tension Pneumothorax

    He was clinically stable without hypoxia or hypotension, and the initial chest x-ray study showed a large pneumothorax without mediastinal shift.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Giant bulla may mimic TPX with wide radiolucent view and mediastinal shift. The present report includes giant pulmonary bulla in 35-year-old woman.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] shift associated with cardiovascular collapse, often attributed to reduced venous return and kinking of the great vessels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Obstructive Atelectasis

    shift ipsilateral tracheal deviation ipsilateral shift of the heart[radiopaedia.org] Chest X-ray revealed atelectasis of the right upper lobe (RUL) with ipsilateral mediastinal shift ( Fig. 1 ). X-ray on admission was normal.[archbronconeumol.org] shift") potential causes of resorptive atelectasis include obstructing neoplasms, mucous plugging in asthmatics or critically ill patients and foreign body aspiration resorptive[radiopaedia.org]

  • Diaphragmatic Eventration

    A mediastinal shift to the contralateral side may cause significant compression of the affected chest contents, resulting in compromised pulmonary function, especially when[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] His chest radiograph showed a raised left diaphragmatic dome with a gastric shadow obliterating the left lung field and mediastinal shift to the right [Figure 1] .[archintsurg.org] A chest X-ray revealed pneumoperitoneum, raised left diaphragm and right-sided mediastinal shift (Fig. 1).[sajs.redbricklibrary.com]

  • Lobectomy or Pneumonectomy

    CT The lung is absent at the side of surgery, with resultant mediastinal shift and compensatory hyperinflation of the contralateral lung. Promoted articles (advertising)[radiopaedia.org] Second point, there may be no sign to suggest mediastinal shift in lobectomy ( central trachea) but in penumonectomy, you are expected to find signs suggesting mediastinal[passpaces.com] A fistula between the bronchus and pleura sometimes occurs, leading to subcutaneous emphysema and mediastinal shift caused by a massive air leak.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Scimitar Syndrome

    Chest radiography showed volume loss of the right lung with mediastinal shift to the right and opacification of the right hemithorax.[sajr.org.za] Plain radiograph Chest radiographic findings are that of a small lung with ipsilateral mediastinal shift, and in one-third of cases, the anomalous draining vein may be seen[radiopaedia.org] Mediastinal shift and dextroposition of the heart on plain film are indicators of pulmonary hypoplasia, which warrants further investigation.[sajr.org.za]

  • Malignant Pleural Effusion

    Abstract A patient presented to the emergency department with a malignant pleural effusion associated with shortness of breath, and radiographic evidence of mediastinal shift[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chest radiograph reveals right upper lobe collapse and a moderate sized right-sided pleural effusion with no mediastinal shift.[clevelandclinicmeded.com] Such a situation may be suggested by lack of mediastinal shift on perioperative radiographs or may be seen only at surgery.[doi.org]

  • Bronchial Obstruction

    Computed tomography revealed a large endobronchial lesion causing occlusion of the left main bronchus and significant mediastinal shift to the left.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Conclusion: Obstruction of the right main bronchus by a soft tissue mass resulting in airless "drowned" right lung with subsequent volume loss and mediastinal shift.[radiopaedia.org] Radiographic findings may demonstrate, endobronchial lesions, atelectasis , pneumonia , bronchiectasis and in some instances even mediastinal shift.[omicsonline.org]

  • Artificial Pneumothorax

    BACKGROUND: Microwave ablation has been extensively used for eliminating pulmonary tumors; however, it is usually associated with severe pain under local anesthesia. Decreasing the power and shortening the ablation time can help to relieve the pain; however, this leads to incomplete ablation and an increasing[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dextrocardia

    Dextrocardia (from Latin dexter, meaning "right," and Greek kardia, meaning "heart") is a rare congenital condition in which the apex of the heart is located on the right side of the body. There are two main types of dextrocardia: dextrocardia of embryonic arrest (also known as isolated dextrocardia) and[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Congenital Emphysema

    The ipsilateral rib spaces may be widened, the ipsilateral hemidiaphragm may be depressed, and there may be contralateral mediastinal shift.[roentgenrayreader.blogspot.com] Post-operative chest X-ray showed expansion of the right upper and lower lobes, with no emphysema or mediastinal shift.[jcnonweb.com] The cardiac apex may be displaced if marked mediastinal shift is present.[prognosisapp.com]
