329 Possible Causes for Mediastinal Shift

  • Obstructive Atelectasis

    shift ipsilateral tracheal deviation ipsilateral shift of the heart[] Repeat chest radiograph revealed white out of the right hemi-thorax with tracheal and mediastinal shift to right [Figure 2] a.[] Chest X-ray revealed atelectasis of the right upper lobe (RUL) with ipsilateral mediastinal shift ( Fig. 1 ). X-ray on admission was normal.[]

  • Pleuropulmonary Blastoma

    shift, frequent pleural effusion, and no chest wall invasion.[] In contrast to adults, children that undergo this intervention are prone to postoperative mediastinal shift, which leads to bronchial stretching resulting in severe respiratory[] Unilateral lung whiteout on plain film with mediastinal shift to opposite side. Usually there are no adjacent rib erosions or calcifications.[]

  • 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[] In adults, mostly it is asymptomatic, usually it involves left hemidiaphragm with right sided mediastinal shift [ 1 ].[] 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].[]

  • Scimitar Syndrome

    Mediastinal shift to the right with dextroversion of the heart.[] Chest radiography showed volume loss of the right lung with mediastinal shift to the right and opacification of the right hemithorax.[] 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[]

  • Hydropneumothorax

    Computed tomography of the thorax showed multiple bilateral cavitating lesions and a right-sided hydropneumothorax with mediastinal shift.[] A chest x-ray revealed mediastinal shift and a left sided pneumothorax. Drainage was carried out, revealing air and clear fluid in the pleural space.[]

  • Foreign Body Aspiration

    CONCLUSION: Penetration syndrome, localized decreased breath sounds, unilateral hyperinflation and/or mediastinal shift on radiology are predictors for early diagnosis of[] Tracheal deviation, mediastinal shift. Diagnostic workout: Anamnesis (extraordinary episode of coughing, peanuts ?).[] Chest x-ray showed overdistension of the left lung and a mediastinal shift. Foreign body aspiration was diagnosed.[]

  • Artificial Pneumothorax

    Abstract Systemic air embolism occurred in a patient during general anaesthesia, with positive pressure ventilation, following induction of artificial pneumothorax to assist in the diagnosis of a mediastinal mass. A sudden change in vital signs together with neurological abnormalities suggested involvement of both[…][]

  • Malignant Pleural Effusion

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

  • Pleural Effusion

    A 13-year-old boy with no risk factors for lung cancer presented with a massive left-sided pleural effusion and a mediastinal shift on chest radiography and computed tomography[] shift 3000mL opacification of hemithorax contralateral mediastinal shift PLEURAL FLUID Things to put on the lab form: Protein LDH Glucose pH WCC Cytology Amylase HCT Gram[] […] homogenous density over lower lung zone veil appearance to lung lung markings not obliterated air bronchograms absent 500-3000mL silhouetting of diaphragm contralateral mediastinal[]

  • Pulmonary Blastoma

    shift.[] Unilateral lung whiteout on plain film with mediastinal shift to the opposite side. Usually, there are no adjacent rib erosions or calcifications.[] Pulmonary blastoma usually presents radiologically as a well-defined mass lesion on chest radiography, which may be large enough to completely opacify the hemithorax and cause mediastinal[]
