160 Possible Causes for Pleural Adhesions

  • Pleural Fibrosis

    […] to be associated with the presence and extent of pleural adhesions.[journals.lww.com] Understanding the biology of these growth factors may allow therapeutic manipulation of these cytokines to create pleurodesis or to inhibit pleural (and peritoneal) adhesion[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Macroscopically, all had extensive visceral pleural fibrosis and extensive areas of adhesions, and four also had discrete parietal pleural plaques.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Empyema

    Rabbit EMP was characterized by the development of pleural adhesions detectable by chest ultrasonography and fibrinous coating of the pleura.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Low CO2 insuffulation pressures (e.g. 4 mm Hg) initially aids both in slow disruption of pleural adhesions and lung collapse.[ipeg.org] The purulent exudate is often thick and may become located with fibrinous strands and adhesions, and sometimes as associated rind covering the pleural surfaces.[lifeinthefastlane.com]

  • Pleurectomy

    In one patient, initial VATS pleurectomy for SSP was abandoned in favour of open pleurectomy because of poor visualisation caused by pleural adhesions.[academic.oup.com] This produces dense adhesions between the apex of the lung, the most common location of bullae, and the ribcage. [3] Basal pleural abrasion To preserve its function the, basal[emedicine.medscape.com] In patients with diffuse bullous lung disease associated with SSP, technical difficulties were posed by the presence of patchy pleural adhesions (a sequel of prolonged intercostals[academic.oup.com]

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    adhesions, which makes VATS not practicable.[doi.org] […] length of stay than open thoracotomy, thus representing the procedure of choice [ 1 ], while a lateral “muscle sparing” thoracotomy should be limited to cases with strong pleural[doi.org]

  • Pleural Tuberculosis

    Compared with control , corticosteroids may reduce the risk of having pleural changes (such as pleural thickening or pleural adhesions), on chest X-ray at the end of follow-up[cochrane.org] […] infection in tuberculosis is usually characterized by an effusion in early stages, or by diffuse pleural thickening and adhesions often with calcification in long standing[lungindia.com] […] bands Mesenteric adhesions Type 1 Excludes female pelvic adhesions [bands] ( N73.6 ) peritoneal adhesions with intestinal obstruction ( K56.5- ) pleura, pleuritic J94.8 ICD[icd10data.com]

  • Viral Pleurisy

    People with pleural adhesions have: Recurrence of frequent pleuritis, Chronic pain, Short of breath.[hickeysolution.com] Mesothelial cells recognise invasion of the pleural space and initiate recruitment of cells through co-ordinated expression of cytokines, chemokines, and vascular adhesion[bestpractice.bmj.com] Mesothelial cells recognize invasion of the pleural space and initiate recruitment of cells through coordinated expression of cytokines, chemokines, and vascular adhesion[online.epocrates.com]

  • Silicosis

    First hospitalization chest radiography showed bilateral pleural adhesions, diffuse lung fibrosis with signs of a specific lung process.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diffuse Pulmonary Lymphangiomatosis

    Lungs were congested, edematous, of increased consistence, with bilateral pleural adhesions, pleural fibrinous reaction at the base of the lungs ( Figures 3C and 3D ) and[shortnessofbreath.it]

  • Asbestosis

    Macroscopically, all had extensive visceral pleural fibrosis and extensive areas of adhesions, and four also had discrete parietal pleural plaques.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tuberculosis

    After careful opening of the chest wall, fine pleural adhesions of the lung indicated a tuberculose infection. (B) Case TT95-PC169.[dx.doi.org]
