57 Possible Causes for Spontaneous Pneumothorax, Tracheal Deviation

  • Pneumothorax

    Several individuals with a family history of spontaneous pneumothorax have a mutation in the folliculin gene.[] Note the tracheal deviation to the left. Prognosis If the pneumothorax was an isolated event and treatment was initiated early, the prognosis is excellent.[] deviation Hyper-resonance to percussion Decreased breath sounds In tension pneumothorax: Raised JVP, pulsus paradoxus, marked tracheal deviation, Tachycardia 135, hypotension[]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Radiographics 10:413–431 PubMed Google Scholar Lambert HP (1956) Spontaneous pneumothorax and pulmonary tuberculosis.[] Older patients, who may have co-existent chronic bronchitis, can be missed unless a chest X-ray is taken May also present with pleural effusions, spontaneous pneumothorax[] To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of PLCH with cervical lymph node involvement, and coexisted with pulmonary tuberculosis, right pneumothorax.[]

  • Pleural Mesothelioma

    AIM: The aim of the present study was to assess the prognostic utility of the pretreatment blood neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and the C-reactive protein-to-albumin ratio (CAR) in patients with inoperable malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The medical records of consecutive[…][]

  • Artificial Pneumothorax

    pneumothorax sions spontaneous pneumo spontaneous pneumothorax surgical tachycardia Tense Pneumothorax thoracoscopy thoracotomy thorax tion Treatment is directed tuberculous[] In the early nineteenth century, however, patients with phthisis, or tuberculosis of the lung, were observed to improve after a spontaneous pneumothorax.[] Its development followed an early 19th century observation that spontaneous pneumothorax improved a tuberculosis patient.[]

  • Hemothorax

    deviation away from pneumothorax - Percussion hyperresonnance - Unilateral absence [] Although tracheal deviation and jugular venous distention are commonly cited[] pneumothorax J93.12 Secondary spontaneous pneumothorax J93.8 Other pneumothorax and air leak J93.81 Chronic pneumothorax J93.83 Other pneumothorax J93.9 Pneumothorax, unspecified[] Air in the pleural cavity that results from disease rather than trauma to the lung is referred to as spontaneous pneumothorax.[]

  • Pleurisy

    This is called a spontaneous pneumothorax. Smoking increases your risk of spontaneous pneumothorax. Having a family history of the condition also increases your risk.[] RESULTS: The isolated cells from the irrigation fluid of primary spontaneous pneumothorax had epithelial characteristics.[] Except for traumatic or spontaneous pneumothorax, little information is known about exercise associated pleural pathologies.[]

  • Atelectasis

    When there is no apparent cause, the condition is known as spontaneous pneumothorax.[] pneumothorax and postoperative atelectasis.[] Spontaneous pneumothorax is also known as collapse of a lung.[]

  • Traumatic Pneumothorax

    A chest radiograph was ordered, which showed a large right-sided pneumothorax with tracheal deviation suggestive of a tension pneumothorax.[] Resources: BTS Pleural Disease Guidelines 2010: Management of spontaneous pneumothorax BTS Pleural Disease Guidelines 2010: Complete includes information on: investigation[] In a tension pneumothorax, findings may include a displaced point of maximal impulse, tracheal deviation, mediastinal shift, and hemodynamic instability.[]

  • Iatrogenic Pneumothorax

    Clinical signs of tension pneumothorax include tracheal deviation, hyperresonance, and hypotension.[] STUDY DESIGN: From April 2001 through October 2003 patients with iatrogenic or spontaneous pneumothorax were enrolled in this prospective, randomized trial.[] A tension pneumothorax additionally presents with distended neck veins, tracheal deviation, and hemodynamic instability. Both should be suspected on clinical evaluation.[]

  • Pleural Effusion

    Large effusion: complete shadowing of the lung with mediastinal shift and tracheal deviation away from the effusion Lateral decubitus view : demonstrates whether fluid is[] […] and air leak J93.0 Spontaneous tension pneumothorax J93.1 Other spontaneous pneumothorax J93.11 Primary spontaneous pneumothorax Reimbursement claims with a date of service[] A large effusion there may cause tracheal deviation away from the effusion.[]
