34 Possible Causes for Perinatal Pleural Effusion

  • Pleural Effusion

    In this study, we aimed to investigate the perinatal and postnatal outcomes of hydrops fetalis with pleural effusion treated by TAS using a double-basket catheter, and to[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RESULTS: Forty-one HF patients with pleural effusion were included, and 28 patients (68%) survived.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] METHODS: All live-born HF patients with pleural effusion, except for chromosomal abnormality or complex congenital heart disease, born from 2009 to 2013 in Aichi Prefecture[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chylothorax

    In the present case we document a successful intervention with reduction of the pleural effusion, despite the recurrence observed two weeks later.[omicsonline.org] The outcome after shunting is predominantly influenced by the presence of hydrops, with perinatal survival of 70-100% in its absence compared to 45-65% survival in hydropic[omicsonline.org]

  • Congenital Chylothorax

    The present case reinforces the notions that fetuses with congenital chylothorax are at risk for chromosomal abnormalities, and drainage of pleural effusion must include a[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Definition, prevalence, and associations Chylothorax, which is defined as accumulation of lymph in the pleural cavity, is the most common form of pleural effusion encountered[dovepress.com] In the present case we document a successful intervention with reduction of the pleural effusion, despite the recurrence observed two weeks later.[omicsonline.org]

  • Thoracentesis

    In the first case, thoracentesis was performed in a fetus with bilateral isolated pleural effusion at the gestational age of 20 weeks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In the second case, we performed thoracentesis in a fetus with a unilateral pleural effusion and skin edema at the gestational age of 17 weeks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fetal hydrothorax achieved complete resolution after a single thoracentesis was performed, and the perinatal outcome was good.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Nonimmune Hemolysis

    If the cause of NIH cannot be determined, the perinatal mortality is approximately 50% Prognosis is much poorer if diagnosed at less than 24 weeks, pleural effusion is present[perinatology.com]

  • Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber Syndrome

    Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome (congenital dysplastic angiopathy) is a congenital vascular disorder of unknown cause. Klippel-Trenaunay (KTS) is characterized by a triad of symptoms: Port Wine Birthmark ( capillary malformation) covering one or more limbs, congenital vascular anomalies, usually[…][web.archive.org]

  • Non-Immune Hydrops Fetalis

    The clinical presentations include ascites, scalp edema, pleural or pericardial effusions and polyhydramnios.[dergipark.gov.tr] Conclusion: NIHF patients with pleural effusion have a high perinatal mortality rate of 50-98% due to the present severe clinical symptoms.[bildirim.org] Perinatal outcome following fetal chest shunt insertion for pleural effusion.[marmaramedicaljournal.org]
