Robert G. Sherding, Stephen J. Birchard, in Saunders Manual of Small Animal Practice (Third Edition), ETIOLOGY. Pleural effusion occurs when one or, more often, a combination of the factors that determine pleural fluid dynamics are altered so as to increase fluid formation, decrease fluid absorption, or both. For example, pleural effusion is often associated with congestive heart failure. What Causes Pleural Effusion? 1. Transudate pleural effusions. Transudate pleural effusion is formed when fluid leaks from blood vessels into the pleural space. Chemically, transudates contain less protein and LDH than exudates. It is generally seen in the following conditions. Congestive heart failure. Liver failure or cirrhosis.
Cause of Effusions. According to a review in the World Journal of Gastroenterology, up to 17 percent of patients with acute pancreatitis develop pleural effusions. Most pleural effusions are left-sided, but effusions may involve only the right lung or both lungs. Pleural effusions appear on chest X-rays as white space at the base of the lung. How are pleural effusions treated? In mild cases of pleural effusions, your physician may target the underlying medical condition that is causing pleural effusion. For example, prescribing antibiotics for pneumonia or diuretics for congestive heart failures.

Pleural effusion is an indicator of an underlying disease process that may be pulmonary or nonpulmonary in origin and may be acute or chronic. [4, 5] Although the etiologic spectrum of pleural effusion is extensive, most pleural effusions are caused by congestive heart failure, pneumonia, malignancy, or pulmonary embolism. The following.

Three recent medical studies shed light on this question. A study in the European Respiratory Journal analyzed patients who developed a pleural effusion after a heart surgery. About 40% of the patients developed a pleural effusion, and on average, by day seven post-op.

Pericardial effusion Definition A pericardial effusion is a fluid collection that develops between the pericardium, the lining of the heart, and the heart itself.
Pericardial effusions can be found in up to 20% of cancer patients at autopsy, but of those, only about 30% would have had symptoms from their effusions.
Source for information on Pericardial Effusion: Gale Encyclopedia of Cancer. Pericardial Effusions are typically subclinical; however, the major clinical concern is the development of cardiac tamponade which may occur if the effusion develops rapidly and overwhelms the capacity of pericardial lymphatics to drain excess fluid.
Additionally, the pericardial sac can gradually stretch with slowly developing effusions, thus accommodating larger volumes of fluid without. For example, in patients with pneumonia, 20%% have parapneumonic effusions while decompensated congestive heart failure (CHF) creates pleural effusions in the majority of patients (87%).
1 Among medical intensive care unit patients, about % have effusions, whereas pleural effusions exist in 17% of dyspneic emergency department patients.
Pleural Effusion appears as a meniscus-shaped, concave upward opacity; Congestive Heart Failure. Started inthis collection now contains interlinked topic pages divided into a tree of 31 specialty books and chapters. Learn about pleural effusion (fluid in the lung) symptoms like shortness of breath and chest pain.
Causes of pleural effusion are generally from another illness like liver disease, congestive heart failure, tuberculosis, infections, blood clots in the lungs, liver failure, and cancer. Treatment of pleural effusion is based on the underlying condition and whether the effusion is causing severe respiratory symptoms, such as shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.
Diuretics and other heart failure medications are used to treat pleural effusion caused by congestive heart. The effusions of the heart: poems.
By Miss Stockdale. Dedicated, BY Permission, To Her Majesty. Summary Pericardial effusion is the acute or chronic accumulation of fluid in the pericardial space (between the parietal and the visceral pericardium) and is often associated with a variety of underlying disorders.
The fluid can be either bloody (e.g., following aortic dissection) or serous (usually idiopathic). Cardiomegaly and pleural effusion (on the right side) in a patient with heart failure. Echocardiography This is the investigation of choice and can identify and quantify LVH and dysfunction (both systolic and diastolic) as well as examine causes of heart failure, such as valve abnormalities.
heart failure, which is when the heart is not pumping blood around the body as well as it should. A pleural effusion can also be a symptom of several types of cancer. An effusion can develop if cancer cells have spread into the pleura. They can lead to irritation and cause fluid to build up.
In some cases of pleurisy, excess fluid builds up in the pleural is called a pleural effusion.A lot of extra fluid can push the pleura against your lung until the lung, or part of it, collapses. This can make it hard for you to breathe. Sometimes the extra fluid gets infected and turns into an this happens, it's called an empyema (em-pi-E-ma).
Pericardial effusion in cats is often secondary to congestive heart failure or feline infectious peritonitis but may be caused by primary cardiac neoplasia, such as lymphoma. 3 The most common causes of pericardial effusion in the dog include cardiac neoplasia and idiopathic pericardial effusion.
