Lymphangiectasis


Presentation

Pain
  • Symptoms include dyspnea, tachycardia, pain in the affected hemitoracele. Rarely patients may experience a rapid accumulation of fluid in the pleural space causing a tension chilotorax. It is usually a complication of pneumectomiei.[medicaldb.blogspot.com]
Asymptomatic
  • The patient usually remains asymptomatic until it accumulates a large amount of fluid in the pleural space. Symptoms include dyspnea, tachycardia, pain in the affected hemitoracele.[medicaldb.blogspot.com]
Hypoxemia
  • In chilotoraxul progressive installation can cause physiological disorders by: pulmonary compression, pulmonary collapse, leading to decreased ventilation and perfusion and subsequently with hypoxemia by rights-are left, contralateral mediastinal shift[medicaldb.blogspot.com]
Collapse
  • In chilotoraxul progressive installation can cause physiological disorders by: pulmonary compression, pulmonary collapse, leading to decreased ventilation and perfusion and subsequently with hypoxemia by rights-are left, contralateral mediastinal shift[medicaldb.blogspot.com]
Coarctation of the Aorta
  • Both surgeries as well as specific cardiovascular thoracic surgery may be followed by thoracic duct fistula: ligation of the ductus arteriosus, coarctation of the aorta cure, anvrism aortic resection, Fontan operation, Mustard, by-pass aorto-coronary[medicaldb.blogspot.com]
Tachypnea
Pleural Effusion
  • Congenital lesions of the lymphatic system is the most common cause of pleural effusion in the newborn.[medicaldb.blogspot.com]
Tachypnea
Sneezing
  • […] tear duct injuries can occur through different pathogenic mechanisms: hyperextension of the spine especially when the duct is fixed by the pathological process and is full-postprandial-rupture occurs above the diaphragm; effort vomiting, coughing and sneezing[medicaldb.blogspot.com]
Hypotension
Flushing
  • Hiperpreziune or erosion can result duct, followed by flushing of lymph in the pleural cavity.[medicaldb.blogspot.com]
Fracture
  • A fracture in the thoracic duct determines the collection of fluid in the pleural cavity causing chili chronic or acute deterioration of lung mechanics.[medicaldb.blogspot.com]
Contusion
  • […] process and is full-postprandial-rupture occurs above the diaphragm; effort vomiting, coughing and sneezing violently access may lead to chiloperitoneului chilotoraxului appearance or shearing by thoracic duct as a pillar of the diaphragm, cervical contusion[medicaldb.blogspot.com]
Irritability
  • Unlike pleural effusion, Chile pahipleurita not cause irritation, also has the tendency to fistulization cloazonare or chest wall.[medicaldb.blogspot.com]

Workup

Mediastinal Shift
  • In chilotoraxul progressive installation can cause physiological disorders by: pulmonary compression, pulmonary collapse, leading to decreased ventilation and perfusion and subsequently with hypoxemia by rights-are left, contralateral mediastinal shift[medicaldb.blogspot.com]
Pleural Effusion
  • Congenital lesions of the lymphatic system is the most common cause of pleural effusion in the newborn.[medicaldb.blogspot.com]

Treatment

  • * Introduction * Signs and symptoms * Diagnosis * Treatment Chilotoraxys is a type of pleural effusion resulting from an accumulation of lymphatic fluid in the pleural cavity.[medicaldb.blogspot.com]

Pathophysiology

  • Pathogenesis: The main causes of fistula Chile are effusion thoracic duct obstruction at different levels or channel its repercussions on waging tributarelor pathophysiological mechanisms depending on the level where it appears.[medicaldb.blogspot.com]

Prevention

  • Fluid in the pleural space drainage is essential to prevent organ damage, especially liver function by inhibition of fluid backpressure. Omitting fat diet is essential. Pleurodeza are surgical or chemical treatment options.[medicaldb.blogspot.com]
