Pleural And -Verkalkung

Pleural and -verkalkung are usually benign consequences of Pleuraentzündungen or asbestos exposure.

Pleural and -verkalkungen post can either flammable or asbestos be caused (asbestos-related pleural disease). These diseases are suspected on the basis of imaging procedures and diagnoses.

Pleural and -verkalkung are usually benign consequences of Pleuraentzündungen or asbestos exposure. Pleural and -verkalkungen post can either flammable or asbestos be caused (asbestos-related pleural disease). These diseases are suspected on the basis of imaging procedures and diagnoses. Post flammable Pleuraentzündungen often acute pleural thickening cause by fibrosis. In most cases, these almost completely regress. In some patients, a mild thickening remains, which usually has no symptoms or limitations of pulmonary function result. Occasionally, the lungs may be clothed with a thick fibrinous Pleurahülle which reduces the expansion of the lungs, mediastinum displaced in the direction of the affected side and restricts the lung function. The chest x-ray shows an asymmetry of the lungs with pleural thickening (tethered lungs). The differentiation of localized pleural thickening of encapsulated pleural fluid can be difficult in the chest x-ray, but this distinction is (secured note. D. Red .: and thus the diagnosis) just in CT. A post inflammatory pleural calcification may occasionally. Calcification seen on radiographs as shading, the visceral pleura is almost always involved with. Postinflammatory calcifications are always one-sided.
