179 Possible Causes for Tracheal Deviation, Tracheal Tug

  • Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm

    Abstract Aorto-esophageal fistula (AEF) is a rare but devastating complication of thoracic aorta endovascular repair (TEVAR). We report a case of a 64-year-old male who presented with chest pain and high CRP levels 10 months after TEVAR for a 9 cm diameter descending thoracic aortic aneurysm. The diagnosis of[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tension Pneumothorax

    However, the classic physical examination findings of tracheal deviation and distended neck veins are poorly sensitive in the diagnosis of tension pneumothorax.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Additional findings include severe respiratory distress, tracheal deviation away from the affected side, hypotension, and jugular venous distention.[medcomic.com] deviation away from the affected side Distended neck veins Hypotension Cardiac arrest Radiology "Should never be done".[ganfyd.org]

  • Substernal Goiter

    Chest radiographs showed tracheal deviation in 79 percent and soft tissue mass in 56 percent.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract We report the case of a 61-year-old female, who presented with a history of chronic fatigue, dyspnea on exertion, a widened mediastinum with tracheal deviation on[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Preoperative imaging identified tracheal deviation in 69% and tracheal compression in 41% of the cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumothorax

    Note the tracheal deviation to the left. Prognosis If the pneumothorax was an isolated event and treatment was initiated early, the prognosis is excellent.[emedicine.medscape.com] deviation Hyper-resonance to percussion Decreased breath sounds In tension pneumothorax: Raised JVP, pulsus paradoxus, marked tracheal deviation, Tachycardia 135, hypotension[oxfordmedicaleducation.com] Note the tracheal deviation to the left. Etiology Simple or complicated pneumothorax is very common in both blunt (38%) and penetrating (64%) pediatric chest injuries.[emedicine.medscape.com]

    A new chest x-ray showed complete collapse of the left lung, with remarkable tracheal deviation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] As the mean tracheal diameter measured at the thoracic inlet is 18.2 mm (standard deviation, 1.2 mm) in men and 15.2 mm (standard deviation, 1.4 mm) in women, considerable[clinicaladvisor.com]
