Hemorrhage within the pleural cavity.
General or unspecified injuries to the chest area.
NECROSIS of lung tissue that is cause by the lack of OXYGEN or blood supply. The most common cause of pulmonary infarction is a blood clot in the lung.
A developmental anomaly in which a mass of nonfunctioning lung tissue lacks normal connection with the tracheobroncheal tree and receives an anomalous blood supply originating from the descending thoracic or abdominal aorta. The mass may be extralobar, i.e., completely separated from normally connected lung, or intralobar, i.e., partly surrounded by normal lung.
Devices used to hold tissue structures together for repair, reconstruction or to close wounds. They may consist of adsorbable or non-adsorbable, natural or synthetic materials. They include tissue adhesives, skin tape, sutures, buttons, staples, clips, screws, etc., each designed to conform to various tissue geometries.
Surgical incision into the chest wall.
Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the pleural cavity.
A usually benign tumor composed of cells which arise from chondroblasts or their precursors and which tend to differentiate into cartilage cells. It occurs primarily in the epiphyses of adolescents. It is relatively rare and represents less than 2% of all primary bone tumors. The peak incidence is in the second decade of life; it is about twice as common in males as in females. (From Dorland, 27th ed; Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1846)
Surgical incision into the chest wall.
The removal of fluids or discharges from the body, such as from a wound, sore, or cavity.
Injuries caused by impact with a blunt object where there is no penetration of the skin.
Accumulations of blood in the PERITONEAL CAVITY due to internal HEMORRHAGE.
Plastic tubes used for drainage of air or fluid from the pleural space. Their surgical insertion is called tube thoracostomy.
Books used in the study of a subject that contain a systematic presentation of the principles and vocabulary of a subject.
The act or practice of literary composition, the occupation of writer, or producing or engaging in literary work as a profession.
A group of disorders characterized by ectodermal-based malformations and neoplastic growths in the skin, nervous system, and other organs.
An autosomal dominant inherited disorder (with a high frequency of spontaneous mutations) that features developmental changes in the nervous system, muscles, bones, and skin, most notably in tissue derived from the embryonic NEURAL CREST. Multiple hyperpigmented skin lesions and subcutaneous tumors are the hallmark of this disease. Peripheral and central nervous system neoplasms occur frequently, especially OPTIC NERVE GLIOMA and NEUROFIBROSARCOMA. NF1 is caused by mutations which inactivate the NF1 gene (GENES, NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 1) on chromosome 17q. The incidence of learning disabilities is also elevated in this condition. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1014-18) There is overlap of clinical features with NOONAN SYNDROME in a syndrome called neurofibromatosis-Noonan syndrome. Both the PTPN11 and NF1 gene products are involved in the SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION pathway of Ras (RAS PROTEINS).
A protein found most abundantly in the nervous system. Defects or deficiencies in this protein are associated with NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 1, Watson syndrome, and LEOPARD syndrome. Mutations in the gene (GENE, NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 1) affect two known functions: regulation of ras-GTPase and tumor suppression.
A moderately firm, benign, encapsulated tumor resulting from proliferation of SCHWANN CELLS and FIBROBLASTS that includes portions of nerve fibers. The tumors usually develop along peripheral or cranial nerves and are a central feature of NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 1, where they may occur intracranially or involve spinal roots. Pathologic features include fusiform enlargement of the involved nerve. Microscopic examination reveals a disorganized and loose cellular pattern with elongated nuclei intermixed with fibrous strands. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1016)
A type of neurofibroma manifesting as a diffuse overgrowth of subcutaneous tissue, usually involving the face, scalp, neck, and chest but occasionally occurring in the abdomen or pelvis. The tumors tend to progress, and may extend along nerve roots to eventually involve the spinal roots and spinal cord. This process is almost always a manifestation of NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 1. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1016; J Pediatr 1997 Nov;131(5):678-82)
INFLAMMATION of PLEURA, the lining of the LUNG. When PARIETAL PLEURA is involved, there is pleuritic CHEST PAIN.
Presence of fluid in the pleural cavity resulting from excessive transudation or exudation from the pleural surfaces. It is a sign of disease and not a diagnosis in itself.
Experiments designed to determine the potential toxic effects of a short-term (a few weeks) exposure to a chemical or chemicals.
An accumulation of air or gas in the PLEURAL CAVITY, which may occur spontaneously or as a result of trauma or a pathological process. The gas may also be introduced deliberately during PNEUMOTHORAX, ARTIFICIAL.
Presence of fluid in the PLEURAL CAVITY as a complication of malignant disease. Malignant pleural effusions often contain actual malignant cells.
A plant genus of the family ASTERACEAE. Members contain wedelolactone and wedeloside.
Abnormal formation of blood vessels that shunt arterial blood directly into veins without passing through the CAPILLARIES. They usually are crooked, dilated, and with thick vessel walls. A common type is the congenital arteriovenous fistula. The lack of blood flow and oxygen in the capillaries can lead to tissue damage in the affected areas.
An autosomal dominant vascular anomaly characterized by telangiectases of the skin and mucous membranes and by recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding. This disorder is caused by mutations of a gene (on chromosome 9q3) which encodes endoglin, a membrane glycoprotein that binds TRANSFORMING GROWTH FACTOR BETA.
All of the divisions of the natural sciences dealing with the various aspects of the phenomena of life and vital processes. The concept includes anatomy and physiology, biochemistry and biophysics, and the biology of animals, plants, and microorganisms. It should be differentiated from BIOLOGY, one of its subdivisions, concerned specifically with the origin and life processes of living organisms.
A publication issued at stated, more or less regular, intervals.
Congenital vascular anomalies in the brain characterized by direct communication between an artery and a vein without passing through the CAPILLARIES. The locations and size of the shunts determine the symptoms including HEADACHES; SEIZURES; STROKE; INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES; mass effect; and vascular steal effect.

Rupture of aortic aneurysm with right-sided haemothorax. (1/130)

A 62-yr-old male with a history of high blood pressure was admitted for persistent dyspnoea and a right-sided pleural effusion, complicated by a recent episode of shock. There was no history of trauma and the patient denied any thoracic pain. A chest tube was inserted which released nonclotting bloody fluid. A thoracic computed tomographic scan of the chest revealed an aneurysm of the inferior third of the descending thoracic aorta. The patient underwent a successful prosthetic graft replacement. We emphasize that rupture of aortic aneurysms should be considered in the evaluation of spontaneous haemothorax even if it is right-sided and not associated with pain.  (+info)

Spontaneous haemothorax: a cause of sudden death in von Recklinghausen's disease. (2/130)

Vasculopathy is a relatively frequent but poorly recognised manifestation of von Recklinghausen's neurofibromatosis. One of its more dramatic presentations is as spontaneous haemothorax. Clinicians and pathologists should be aware of this syndrome as a cause of sudden death in patients with neurofibromatosis.  (+info)

Bilateral hemothorax revealing mediastinal parathyroid adenoma. (3/130)

We report the case of a 63-year-old woman admitted to hospital because of bilateral hemothorax associated with acute respiratory failure and laterotracheal neoformation. A right thoracoscopy biopsy revealed a paratracheal parathyroid adenoma which was responsible for bilateral hemothorax and primary hyperparathyroidism. A curative resection was successfully performed by cervicotomy.  (+info)

Intrathoracic extramedullary haematopoiesis complicated by massive haemothorax in alpha-thalassaemia. (4/130)

Intrathoracic extramedullary haematopoiesis (EMH) is a rare entity that is usually asymptomatic. A 44 year old man with alpha-thalassaemia is described who developed dyspnoea and massive left sided haemothorax. The haemoglobin disorder was established by Hgb H staining and haemoglobin electrophoretic studies. The DNA analysis revealed it to be a case of double heterozygous terminal codon mutation with the genotype alphaalphaCS/alphaalphaT. Computed tomographic scanning and magnetic resonance imaging of the thorax showed multiple paravertebral masses which were found by thoracoscopic biopsy to be extramedullary haematopoiesis. Although no additional sclerosing pleurodesis or low dose radiation therapy was given, the lung expanded well and there has been no recurrence of haemothorax to date.  (+info)

Haemoptysis after breath-hold diving. (5/130)

Pulmonary oedema has been described in swimmers and self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (Scuba) divers. This study reports three cases of haemoptysis secondary to alveolar haemorrhage in breath-hold divers. Contributory factors, such as haemodynamic modifications secondary to immersion, cold exposure, exercise and exposure to an increase in ambient pressure, could explain this type of accident. Furthermore, these divers had taken aspirin, which may have aggravated the bleeding.  (+info)

Spontaneous hemothorax secondary to immature teratoma of the mediastinum. (6/130)

Spontaneous hemothorax in a 20-year-old boy was caused by rupture of an immature teratoma of the mediastinum. The tumor bled spontaneously into the right pleural space. This life-threatening complication necessitated emergency surgery. The unusual cause and the interesting clinical course of spontaneous hemothorax are described.  (+info)

Spontaneous pneumothorax: outpatient management with intercostal tube drainage. (7/130)

In a series of 104 episodes of pneumothorax 75 percent of episodes were managed successfully on an outpatient basis by observation (23.1 percent) or by intercostal tube drainage using a flutter valve (51.9 percent). The patients for whom this treatment was not successful were admitted to hospital; 17 of them (16.3 percent of 104) were treated surgically. Bleb suturing with a stapling device and dry sponge abrasion of the pleura was the operation of choice.  (+info)

Mortality associated with odontogenic infection! (8/130)

Odontogenic causes are the most common source for spreading maxillo-facial infections. These infections can develop into life threatening events. However a fatal outcome is fortunately rare and is generally associated with an immunocompromised status. This case report highlights a spreading maxillo-facial infection, which resulted in massive haemorrhage from the subclavian vein into the pleural cavity and subsequent death of a young fit male patient.  (+info)

Pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (PAVMs) can be associated with life-threatening complications such as paradoxical embolization, cerebral abscess, and hemothorax. Therefore, all adults with PAVMs should be offered treatment. Percutaneous transcatheter embolization is the first-line treatment, but 5-25% of cases require further treatment due to persistence after embolization. Recently, the role of minimally invasive thoracic surgery as a definitive treatment has been evaluated. We describe a case of a small peripheral PAVM causing hemothorax, which was safely treated with video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). In our case, the PAVM appeared to protrude into the pleural cavity on chest computed tomography (CT), perhaps explaining why it led to a hemothorax. A 64-year-old man with a history of a brain abscess, for which he underwent surgery 6 months previously, developed a left-sided hemothorax. He had experienced recurrent epistaxis and received anticoagulation therapy for chronic atrial
In a patient undergoing regular hemodialysis through an arteriovenous fistula access, pleural effusion is a known long term complication. However, a unilateral hemothorax is relatively uncommon. Here we report a 46 year old male, end-stage renal disease patient, on maintenance hemodialysis, who presented with a giant brachiocephalic AV fistula in his left arm and progressive breathlessness. Radiological imaging revealed a left sided pleural effusion. Ultrasound guided aspiration revealed a hemorrhagic pleural fluid. A Doppler study of the fistula revealed a high velocity blood flow through the fistula, thereby establishing the cause of the unilateral hemothorax. Ligation of the fistula resulted in complete resolution of the hemothorax. The other possible causes for hemothorax in a dialysis patient are also discussed in this case report.

N2 - Background: The effectiveness of 14-French (14F) pigtail catheters (PCs) compared to 32-40F chest tubes (CTs) in patients with traumatic hemothorax (HTX) and hemopneumothorax (HPTX) is becoming more well known but still lacking. The aim of our study was to analyze our cumulative experience and outcomes with PCs in patients with traumatic HTX/HPTX. We hypothesized that PCs would be as effective as CTs. Methods: Using our PC database, we analyzed all trauma patients who required chest drainage for HTX/HPTX from 2008 to 2014. Primary outcomes of ...

However in severe thoracotraumatized patients, such as with bilateral hemopneumothorax, the catherization may be hazardous and made complex by occurrence pneumomediastinum, even the procedure is rightly carried out. We suggest that in such a risky condition, if it is mandatory, it should be carried out in a more placid condition, such as avoidance of high PEEP ventilation, setting lower tidal volume, or brief interruption of positive ventilation, to reduce the likelihood of unperceivable pneumomediastinum.. AB - Pneumomediastinum is a rare event in subclavian central venous catheterization. However in severe ...
Hemorrhagic complications are recognized when anti-platelet agents are used during or after surgical procedures. We present a 69-year-old male patient who developed hemothorax after chest tube insertion for pneumothorax as a complication of clopidogrel and aspirin following ischemic heart disease. Hemothorax associated clopidogrel has rarely been reported and this is the first academic publication of this complication type following chest tube insertion shortly after the cessation of clopidogrel. Our case demonstrates the possibility of hemothorax when chest tube insertion is indicated under such conditions ...

Technical results, clinical efficacy and predictors of outcome of intercostal arteries embolization for hemothorax: a two-institutions experience
Rationale:. Neurofibromatosis type I (NF1) is a hereditary neurocutaneous syndrome resulted from the mutation in NF1 gene. The clinical diagnosis is comprehensively made by neurofibroma, Café-au-lait spot, osseous deformity and so on. Infrequently, aberrant neurofibromin function results in vasculopathy, which can cause fatal hemorrhage. However, it is unclear how surgical interventions should be made.. Case 1:. A 53-year-old man with NF1 was admitted for sudden chest pain. Computed tomography revealed left hemothorax and a tumorous aneurysm in the 7th intercostal artery. A thoracic drainage was performed immediately, and a thoracotomy was performed on 18 days after admission.. Case 2:. A 32-year-old man with NF1 was admitted due to chest back pain and hemodynamic instability. Computed tomography revealed left massive hemothorax and an extravasation from the 9th intercostal aneurysm. An urgent operation via left lateral thoracotomy was performed to remove hematoma and control active bleeding. ...

Diagnosis Code S27.1XXS information, including descriptions, synonyms, code edits, diagnostic related groups, ICD-9 conversion and references to the diseases index.
Primary evaluation: In primary assessment of chest trauma patients the process of diagnosis and prompt treatment should be started simultaneously, searching and managing life-threatening lesions such as airway obstruction, tension pneumothorax, open pneumothorax, massive hemothorax, flail chest and cardiac tamponade. It is mandatory to monitor ECG, blood pressure, pulse oximetry and capnography. In this primary evaluation chest X-ray, ultrasound and blood gases are taken and decide whether to intubate the trachea, needle thorachostomy, chest tube thoracotomy in the emergency room, and/or pericardiocentesis. Secondary assessment: Once the life-threatening lesions are identified and treated a more extend and meticulous evaluation must be done. The first step is to make a complete and detailed review of the case. If there are relatives or friends we must obtain complete data of the patients medical history that can be relevant for the immediate comprehensive management: diabetes, hypertension, ...
Internal jugular vein (IJV) catheterization is a frequently performed procedure. Amongst others, IJV is increasingly being used as a temporary route for hemodialysis catheter placement in patients with renal failure, as is thought to be safer than subclavian or femoral vein sites. In the vast majority of cases, IJV cannulation is successful and uncomplicated, but some times may be associated with potentially serious traumatic complications such as inadverted arterial puncture or laceration, pleural and mediastinal injuries, pneumothorax, hemothorax and hemomediastinum. Arterial injury can result in the development of hematoma, hemothorax, pseudoaneurysm or arteriovenous fistula 5678 . These complications usually occur subsequently to arterial catheterization rather than arterial puncture alone. When identified, prompt vascular surgery and radiology consultation is required.. The most common arterial injury associated with IJV cannulation is carotid artery puncture. Complications caused by ...

Background: Epicardial catheter ablation has been shown to be an effective strategy for treating ventricular arrhythmias (VA). We investigated the efficacy and safety from a tertiary referral center in Taiwan. Methods: From 2010 to 2016, patients undergoing epicardial ablation for VAs were consecutively enrolled. The clinical characteristics, disease entity, electrophysiological studies, and ablation outcome were extracted for further analysis. Results: A total of 80 patients were eligible, including 34 patients for arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC), 16 for Brugada syndrome (BrS), 13 for idiopathic VAs, 11 for idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDCM), 2 for ischemic cardiomyopathy, and 4 for other nonischemic cardiomyopathies (NICM ...
A 51-years-old, male with known history of type 2 diabetes mellitus admitted with evidence of bilateral renal stone for left PCNL. IVU revealed right and left renal stone of about 3cm and 1.1cm respectively, with no evidence of hydronephrosis. Laboratory investigation exhibited hemoglobin of 12.4g/dl. Urine culture and sensitivity was negative and the patient underwent left PCNL (retrograde approach -Lawson).The patient developed left hemothorax and intercostal tube (ICT) was placed. On Post PCNL day 5, follow up CT scan (chest and abdomen) revealed about 8.6 cm3 pleural collection of blood and left lower calyceal stone around 0.9 cm. Hematological examination showed reduced hemoglobin of 9g/dl. On post PCNL day 7, we observed that ICT was still draining blood and hemoglobin further dropped to 8.5g/dl. Two units of PRBCs were transfused and IV rFVIIa was given in a dose of (60 µg/kg) once. On the next day hemoglobin raised to 10.3g/dl and subsequently improved to reach 11gm/dl on the following ...
BACKGROUND: The 25% of traumatic deaths are due to chest trauma with a mortality of 28%, and closed trauma is the most common mechanism of injury. The use of firearms increases the relative risk of death. The five more frequent specific chest injuries are lung contusion (31.8%), hemothorax/pneumothorax (19.4%), rib fractures (13.2%), and diaphragmatic injury (7.5%). CLINICAL CASE: Patient of 25 years with a single firearm projectile wound in the chest who assisted to the emergency room (ER) with significant respiratory distress and meriting surgical emergency airway, documenting double pneumothorax, aortic laceration and rupture of the trachea, which required management in the ER with bilateral chest tube placement and subsequent surgical repair ...
EPH most commonly occurs in high-energy blunt trauma, especially those involving rib fractures [1]. Diagnosis of EPH is generally difficult and often delayed and is mainly based on x-ray findings; therefore, a thoracic CT scan is usually conducted to generate a diagnosis at the shortest possible time. A typical CT finding in EPH is the fat sign, which is the displacement of the thoracic soft-tissue band medially to the ribs due to a fluid accumulation in the extrapleural space [2]. A stable patient and a small hematoma can be managed conservatively. Evacuation of blood clots is required in large EPHs because respiratory and circulatory disturbances may occur [3].. Hemothorax may also occur in EPH cases due to coagulopathy during hemodialysis, suggesting that it arises secondary to platelet dysfunction of uremia and/or anticoagulant use. Nevertheless, the incidence of unilateral EPH is relatively rare in this situation [4]. In the present report, the patient underwent anticoagulant medication ...

This leads to the Summary and Interpretation. The summary is inconclusive and there is no interpretation. The medical examiner explains that Reginald Daye sustained a single puncture laceration that penetrated a slew of organs in the thoracic and abdominal cavities, with hemorrhaging into them. It is evident that Daye did not die due to shock or blood loss. If there was a hemothorax, or bleeding into the chest cavity, or pneumothorax, air in the thoracic cavity, a chest tube would have been inserted. Repairs to lacerated organs should have put an end to the bleeding into the abdominal cavity. There is no mention as to why Daye was brain dead, why he went into cardiac arrest, which preceded which, and whether or not the patient was taken off life support. These questions are all the more baffling when it was reported post-operatively that he was expected to make a full recovery ...
This case highlights the importance recognizing subtle clinical signs in patients after cardiac device implantation as they may indicate a complication. In this case, the cardiac physiologist recognized signs of extracardiac stimulation as possible lead perforation. The subtle chest discomfort could have been missed or presumed to be secondary to musculoskeletal chest pain. Cardiac device implantation has an overall complication rate of 3-7%. The risk of lead perforation ranges from less than 1% to nearly 6% (1). A cohort study of asymptomatic patients demonstrated a prevalence of 6% by CT, though usually without clinical consequence (2). Clinical presentation may be non-specific, including pain, device malfunction, phrenic or chest wall stimulation, hemothorax and tamponade (1). The importance of the multiple imaging modalities including CT is clearly defined in this case, as chest radiograph and transthoracic echo are often non-revealing of the complication (3).. Though large studies are ...
The obvious diagnosis is an easy one! An NG tube is seen curled in the stomach, which is located above the diaphragm! This patient has a traumatic rupture of the left diaphragm.. The other, slightly less obvious finding is a spleen injury. Wait, this is a plain chest x-ray. How can we tell there is a spleen injury?. Look at the inside edge of the ribs and the outside of the lung on the patients left chest. There is a big, radio-dense gap representing a moderate hemothorax. With injuries to the left diaphragm, the rent is rather large allowing much of the stomach to float up into the chest. The spleen is attached to the greater curve of the stomach by the short gastric vessels. As the stomach moves into the chest, the spleen is dragged up there as well. Typically, it has to squeeze through the hole in the diaphragm and commonly sustains significant injury as it does.. Spleen injury is commonly associated with left diaphragm injury. The usual mechanism for both is blunt force to the left chest ...
The new H*VENT vented chest dressing treats not only pneumothorax, but also allows fluids such as blood to be released from the chest (hemothorax).
Look at the clipped xray above. A portion of the left chest wall is off the image. If there were a large pneumothorax on the left, would you be able to see it? What about a large hemothorax? And the mediastinum is fully included, so no problem there. So in this case, no need to repeat immediately.. The same thing goes for the pelvis. You are looking for gross disruption of the pelvic ring, especially posteriorly because this will cause you to intervene in the ED (order blood, consider wrapping the pelvis). So if parts of the edges or top and bottom are clipped, no big deal.. Bottom line: Dont let the xray tech disrupt the team again by reflexively repeating images that are not technically perfect. See if you can use what you already have. And how do you decide if you need to repeat it later, if at all? Consider the mechanism of injury and the physical exam. Then ask yourself if there is anything you could possibly see that was not imaged the first time that would change your management in any ...
AP:No evidence of pneumothorax or hemothorax. Multiple diffuse nodules ranging from 2-4 cm in diameter found bilaterally. There is evidence of some widening of the mediastinum. There are bilateral diffuse areas of greater opacity, greater in the mid to lower fields. L heart border is not clearly seen, both costaphrenic angles are not clearly visualized. Lat: Diffuse increased opacity throughout lung fields, to include above and below the heart shadow. CPA is completely obscured, unable to visualize the spinous processes clearly.
Results. The pleura damage during the operation was registered in 4 (5,2%) patients. Non-specific complications such as hemothorax (n=1) and wound bleeding after surgery with festering it further (n=1) have been occurred. In the postoperative period the brachial plexitis manifested by pain in the arm and neck regions which was stopped with anti-inflammatory, anesthetic agents was observed in 3 patients. All above-mentioned complications were transient in 9 (11,7%) patients. The gradual regression of the neurological symptoms and arterial disturbances was noticed. In the long-term period the positive results were registered in all operated patients, the certain symptoms were recurred in some of them in winter season ...

Chest Tube Care and Monitoring. TERMINAL LEARNING OBJECTIVE Given a scenario in a holding or ward setting, involving a patient with a chest tube, identify procedures for chest tube care and monitoring IAW the Textbook of Basic Nursing, Lippincott. Introduction. Trauma, disease, or surgery can interrupt the closed negative-pressure system of the lungs, causing the lung to collapse. Air or fluid may leak into the pleural cavity. A chest tube is inserted and a closed chest drainage system is attached to promote drainage of air and fluid. Chest tubes are used after chest surgery and chest trauma and for pnuemothorax or hemothorax to promote lung re-expansion. Terms and definitions. a. Pneumothorax collection of air in the pleura space b. Hemothorax an accumulation of blood and fluid in the pleural cavity between the parietal and visceral pleurae, usually as the result of trauma. c. Chest tubes a catheter inserted through the thorax to remove air and fluids from the pleural space and to reestablish ...
Hemopneumothorax, or haemopneumothorax, is a medical term describing the combination of two conditions: pneumothorax, or air in the chest cavity, and hemothorax (also called hæmothorax), or blood in the chest cavity.. A hemothorax, pneumothorax or both can occur if the chest wall is punctured. To understand the ramifications of this it is important to have an understanding of the role of the pleural space. The pleural space is located anatomically between the visceral membrane, which is firmly attached to the lungs, and the parietal membrane which is firmly attached to the chest wall (aka ribcage and intercostal muscles, muscles between the ribs). The pleural space contains pleural fluid. This fluid holds the two membranes together by surface tension, as much as a drop of water between two sheets of glass prevents them from separating. Because of this, when the intercostal muscles move the ribcage outward, the lungs are pulled out as well, dropping the pressure in the lungs and pulling air into ...
Nickles x-rays and case were reviewed by a boarded radiologist, a neurologist, and a surgeon. He was sent for BOTH a CT and an MRI. From these he was found to have both a mass on his heart that extended up and around his spine. These were causing his neurologic (weakness in the back legs) signs, and the blood in his chest. He had an extensive, and expensive, work-up. I have to admit that in 10 years of practice I have never seen a case worked up this extensively, nor this completely, nor this complicated. Nickle had a surgery on the mass around his spine to provide a diagnosis of the mass in his chest. To provide a treatment to a condition it must be diagnosed. The best way to do this is with tissue. Nickles surgery was performed to try to remove the mass on his spine, to help reduce the paralysis in his back legs, and tailor a treatment plan for his specific tumor. His mass came back as a hemangiosarcoma. These are aggressive, invasive and very difficult, if not impossible, to remove. Nickles ...

N2 - BACKGROUND: The practice of transfusing ones own shed whole blood has obvious benefits such as reducing the need for allogeneic transfusions and decreasing the need for other fluids that are typically used for resuscitation in trauma. It is not widely adopted in the trauma setting because of the concern of worsening coagulopathy and the inflammatory process. The aim of this study was to assess outcomes in trauma patients receiving whole blood autotransfusion (AT) from hemothorax. METHODS: This is a multi-institutional retrospective study of all trauma patients who received autologous whole blood transfusion from hemothorax ...
A 71-year-old woman presented with a 1-week history of dyspnoea, right pleuritic chest pain and bilateral ankle oedema. There was no history of cough, fever or haemoptysis. Her body mass index was ,30. Her jugular venous pressure was raised with reduced air entry over the right lung base. She was anaemic (haemoglobin 6.8 g/dl, mean corpuscular volume 67) with type II respiratory failure (pH 7.40, oxygen tension 9.30 kPa, carbon dioxide tension 9.32 kPa on 0.5 fraction of inspired oxygen). Chest radiography revealed a moderate right pleural effusion. A chest drain was inserted in the emergency room and 2 litres of bloody effusion was drained. A subsequent contrast-enhanced CT scan of the chest revealed a probable pulmonary arteriovenous malformation (PAVM) in the right lower lobe and a compressing organised haemothorax with significant mediastinal shift (fig 1A). Pulmonary angiography confirmed a massive PAVM with multiple large feeding arteries and other smaller PAVMs in the right lower lobe ...
From January 1989 to December 1992, in the Institute of Clinical Surgery of the University of Perugia, 102 patients were admitted for thoracic trauma. Two patients with an open thoracic trauma, both presenting multiple shot-wounds, underwent an explorative thoracotomy. One of them died on the operating-table from hemorrhage, while the other was saved by a wedge-resection. A 3rd explorative thoracotomy was successfully performed on a patient with internal thoracic trauma and severe hemothorax. Among the 100 patients with an internal thoracic trauma, mortality was 6%, but only one of the 6 deceased, had no lesions other than a fail chest. As a matter of fact 38 patients presented lesions in other parts of the body. Simple and complicated multiple costal fractures, found in 84 cases, were the most frequent lesions observed. Seventeen of the 38 patients with pneumothorax and/or pleural effusion had a chest tube applied. Three patients were operated for a diaphragmatic hernia with a positive outcome. ...
Rib fractures are the most common chest injury accounting for 10 to 15 percent of all traumatic injuries in the U.S. Nearly 300,000 people are seen each year for rib fractures and 7 percent of this population will require hospitalization for medical, pain, and/ or surgical management.. Rib fractures can cause serious complications including: bleeding in the chest (hemothorax), collapse of the lung (pneumothorax), or result in a fluid accumulation in the chest (pleural effusion), just to name a few. As well, rib fractures may contribute to the development of a lung infection or pneumonia. These problems are important to diagnose following chest trauma and even more importantly, when present, they need to be followed closely in the early post-traumatic period.. The most common symptom that people experience with rib fractures is..... ...
A 28-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds to the chest and upper extremities was transported by private vehicle to a community hospital with limited trauma capabilities. On arrival he developed pulseless electrical activity and cardiopulmonary resuscitation was initiated. He was intubated, transfused with 4 units of packed red blood cells, and resuscitated with 2 L of crystalloid prior to regaining spontaneous circulation. Left-sided tube thoracostomy immediately drained 1600 mL of bright red blood. He was transiently stable for a short transport to the nearest level 1 trauma center.. On arrival the patient was normotensive with tachycardia. Chest X-ray demonstrated persistent left-sided hemothorax despite a well-positioned chest tube. Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma (FAST) examination was negative for pericardial fluid, but positive for intra-abdominal fluid. During the secondary examination the patient became hypotensive with systolic blood pressure (SBP) in the 70 s. A ...

An infected aneurysm of the thoracic aorta is a rare clinical condition with significant morbidity and mortality. Patients with fast-growing aortic aneurysms show a high incidence of rupture. Gram-positive organisms, such as the Staphylococcus and Enterococcus species, are the most common cause of infection. A 91-year-old man presented at our facility with high grade fever and tachypnea, which he had experienced for the previous two days. He had a history of end-stage renal disease and had been undergoing regular chest computed tomography (CT) follow-up for a left lower lung nodule. CT imaging with intravenous contrast media showed a thoracic aortic aneurysm with hemothorax. Rupture of the aneurysm was suspected. CT imaging performed a year ago showed a normal aorta. Blood samples showed a Bacillus cereus infection. The patient was successfully treated for a mycotic aortic aneurysm secondary to Bacillus cereus bacteremia. Here, we report a rare of an infected aneurysm of the thoracic aorta probably
This is a view of the diaphragm and Liver interface. You should notice a bright white echogenic line of the diaphragm around the liver - above which is the pleural space, and below is the Liver. You should appreciate a mirror image artifact of the liver above the diaphragm when there is no thoracic fluid. Pleural effusions (and hemothorax) will appear black above the diaphragm (without a mirror image artifact) and the spine shadows will also be seen extending beyond the diaphragm as fluid allows its visualization. Look between the diaphragm and the liver for any intraperitoneal free fluid as (although rare) fluid may only be located here depending on the location of the laceration ...
This custom medical exhibit features two comparative views of the thorax, abdomen and posterior abdominal wall before and after a fatal rupture of a high (suprarenal) abdominal aortic aneurysm. Identified and shown in the post-rupture condition are a large amount of hemorrhage (blood) within the left thorax (hemothorax) as well as abdominally in the region of the aneurysm.
This really is scary because if you got hit that badly there is probably all kinds of internal damage to your lungs as well. The flail chest itself is not the life-threatening part of the problem -- it can be stabilized with bandages and will heal itself as any broken ribs will.

The second two... maybe one could stitch a wounded lung even in primitive conditions. Infection is kinda guaranteed. Its a tough call ...

A primary spontaneous pneumothorax happens very suddenly without any warning. This type of pneumothorax occurs most commonly in healthy young males and the cause is believed to be a tiny tear or defect on the outer portion of the lung. In most cases, the tear is located towards the top of the lung. It is not known why tears occur in the outer lung but it is believed that pneumothorax develops at a site where bullae are present. Bullae are tiny balloon-like structures of tissue, which are not as strong as lung tissue and are therefore prone to tearing, allowing air to escape into the pleural space.. ...
