Pleural content anomaliesedit

  • Pneumothorax: a collection of air within the pleural cavity, arising either from the outside or from the lung Pneumothoraces may be traumatic, iatrogenic, or spontaneous A tension pneumothorax is a particular type of pneumothorax where the air may enter though a defect of the chest wall, lung, or airways on inspiration, but cannot exit on expiration Each breath increases the amount of trapped air in the chest cavity, leading to further lung compression This is often an urgent situation and may progress to a medical emergency if there is compromise of the venous return to the heart causing hypotension and rarely shock
  • Pleural effusion: a fluid accumulation within the pleural space Abnormal collections of pleural fluid may be due to excessive fluid volume ie excess intravenous fluids, renal failure, decreased fluid protein eg cirrhosis, proteinuria, heart failure, bleeding hemothorax, infections parapneumonic effusions, pleural empyema, inflammation, malignancies, or perforation of thoracic organs ie chylothorax, esophageal rupture
