33 Possible Causes for Tracheal Tug

  • Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm

    BACKGROUND: Compression of the trachea, bronchi, and pulmonary arteries are complications in patients with large thoracic aortic aneurysms. In this case, we report unexpected cardiopulmonary collapse manifested by general anesthesia before surgery in an asymptomatic patient with a large thoracic aortic aneurysm.[…][]

  • Congenital Laryngomalacia

    OBJECTIVE: To compare the growth of infants with moderate to severe laryngomalacia who underwent supraglottoplasty to the growth of those treated with medical therapy alone. STUDY DESIGN: Case-control study of patients treated between 2008 and 2013. SETTING: Tertiary care pediatric otolaryngology practice.[…][]

  • Mediastinal Neoplasm

    Abstract A case of giant cell tumor of the thoracic spine simulating mediastinal neoplasm was identified on plain films, CT scans, MR images, and with scintigraphy. CT showed a hypervascular soft-tissue mass with shell-like calcification in the right upper mediastinum. MR imaging showed a collapse of the T1 vertebral[…][]

  • Congenital Goiter

    Twin N-2 had clear evidence of airway obstruction with tracheal tug, sternal recession and poor air entry, and was also intubated at 2 min of age.[]

  • Laryngeal Stridor

    • Noisy breathing - stertor, stridor • Increased respiratory rate • Increased use of muscles (accessory, intercostal) • Tracheal tug • Difficulty in talking • Tachycardic[] Signs of airway obstruction include rib retraction, tracheal tug, paradoxical breathing movements (chest falls and abdomen rises with inspiration) and possibly stridor.[] Stridor is accompanied by hoarseness, brassy cough, tracheal shift or tug and distended neck veins.[]

  • Spasmodic Croup

    Tug Nasal Flaring Marked increase or decrease Tracheal Tug Nasal Flaring Accessory Muscle Use None or minimal Moderate chest wall retraction Marked chest wall retraction[] His chest is clear on auscultation, there is no tracheal tug or chest-wall recession, and his respiratory rate is normal.[] That was my signal to check him, and he would have a wheeze and an obvious tracheal tug. Usually we could relieve it with ventolin (4-6 puffs) about 1/2-1hr apart?[]
