Thoraco-abdominal CT-scan showed a right hydrothorax
, confirmed the abdominopelvic mass which filled all the peritoneal cavity without signs of distant metastases or lymphadenopathy (Figures 2-4).
CXR following MT showed no recurrence of the hydrothorax
Approximately 2% to 3% of PD patients develop hydrothorax
secondary to pleuro-peritoneal communication, and it mostly affects older females.

in swine produced by fumonisin [B.
IIPV may result in serious injury or death from conditions such as: abdominal wall and/or diaphragmatic hernias, hydrothorax
, heart failure, acute hypertension, pulmonary edema, decreased pulmonary function and pericardial effusion.

Postmortem examination of each of the 2 dead llamas 6-16 hours after death showed similar results: acute and severe hydrothorax
, severe congestion and edema of the lungs, and fibrinous pericarditis.
The preponderance of right hydrothorax
in congestive heart failure.
Clinical features included various forms of metastasis in the pericardium (n = 1), upper right clavicle (n = 1), lymph nodes (n = 1), liver (n = 1), and brain (n = 1); accompanying hydrothorax
was also observed in nine patients.
Pericardial fluid (180 mL), right hydrothorax
(300 mL), ascites (300 mL), and generalized edema were also found.
was concomitantly drained using 2 large Argyle tubes connected to underwater seal.
Clinical evaluation may reveal hypovolemia, hemoconcentration, electrolyte imbalances, ascites, hemoperitoneum, pleural effusions, hydrothorax
, acute pulmonary distress, and thromboembolic events (see "Pulmonary and Vascular Complications").
2 At introduction, the NanoMaxx tool is available with a complement of five transducers to support a wide range of examinations and procedures including thoracic assessment for hemothorax, hydrothorax
and pneumothorax, vascular access, needle aspirations and injections, as well as abdominal, cardiac, nerve, OB/Gyn, musculoskeletal, small parts and vascular scanning.
