The clinical history of increased intracranial pressure in this ICU patient, with no increased septic markers, that guide us for non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema as the likely cause. ADVERTISEMENT: Supporters see fewer/no ads, Please Note: You can also scroll through stacks with your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys. A patient suffering from cardiogenic pulmonary edema has a primary problem with its heart, which in turn reduces stroke volume. While cardiogenic pulmonary edema tends to present as diffuse infiltrates on chest radiography, non-cardiogenic edema typically is localized to the periphery when the etiology is lung-related. In children (6) and in patients with a compromised cardiovascular status (3, the occur- rence of cardiogenic pulmonary oedema after i.v. Causes of Pulmonary Edema. Clinical and radiologic features of pulmonary edema. Hypovolemia shock; Re-expansion; By drainage of a large pleural effusion with thoracentesis; Of the lung collapsed by a large pneumothorax; High altitude pulmonary edema; Disseminated intravascular coagulopathy (DIC) Head trauma; Overwhelming sepsis. Reperfusion pulmonary edema is an acute, mixed, noncardiogenic edema that is observed in up to 90%–100% of patients who have undergone pulmonary thromboendarterectomy for massive pulmonary embolism or for webs and segmental stenoses associated with chronic pulmonary embolism (, 60). Developed by renowned radiologists in each specialty, STATdx provides comprehensive decision support you can rely on - Pulmonary Edema, Noncardiogenic Cardiogenic pulmonary edema shows mediastinal widening . Pulmonary edema is caused by or associated with a wide variety of pathological conditions. There is pulmonary edema as evidenced by widespread bilateral alveolar opacifcation and … (4)University of Ottawa Heart Institute, Ottawa, ON, Canada. For pulmonary edema to develop, essentially always an increased intravascular hydrostatic pressure or a disturbed vascular permeability is responsible. Abstract. Pulmonary edema is fluid accumulation in the tissue and air spaces of the lungs. The ability to discern between non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema from cardiogenic pulmonary edema is important for adequate treatment options as well as a prognostic indicator. ... 1 Department of Radiology and Interventional Radiology, ... metabolism of the non-pulmonary organs. We describe a case of fatal non-cardiogenic pulmonary oedema, after use of iopamidol, a widely used, low osmolar, non-ionic, radiographic contrast medium. It leads to impaired gas exchange and may cause respiratory failure.It is due to either failure of the left ventricle of the heart to remove blood adequately from the pulmonary circulation (cardiogenic pulmonary edema), or an injury to the lung tissue or blood vessels of the lung (non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema). Radiographics. Pulmonary edema is a condition characterized by fluid accumulation in the lungs caused by extravasation of fluid from pulmonary vasculature into the interstitium and alveoli of the lungs 3. Features are those of nonspecific bilateral airspace opacities, with differentials including pulmonary edema, infection, and pulmonary hemorrhage. CXR from two different patients with cardiogenic shock. Causes include: fluid overload; pulmonary edema with acute asthma ; post-obstructive pulmonary edema/postintubation pulmonary edema/negative pressure pulmonary edema; pulmonary edema in pulmonary thromboembolism The main pathophysiologic mechanism of this disorder is directly associated with the rapid increase in … Causes include: The causes of non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema can be recalled with the following mnemonic: NOTCARDIAC. Rationale: Acute non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema (ANPE) is a rare but challenging complication which occurs during the perioperative period, mainly before and after the extubation in the course of the recovery period of general anesthesia.It is characterized by increased fluid in extravascular pulmonary spaces, preventing gas exchange and further resulting in respiratory failure. 19 (6): 1507-31. differential diagnoses of airspace opacification, presence of non-lepidic patterns such as acinar, papillary, solid, or micropapillary, myofibroblastic stroma associated with invasive tumor cells. The latter, noncardiogenic pulmonary edema (NPE), is caused by changes in permeability of the pulmonary capillary membrane as a result of either a direct or an indirect pathologic insult (see the images below). New subscribers randomly selected … Note the barotrauma with pneumomediastinum, Axial NECT shows dependent gradient from intense pulmonary opacification, Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window), Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window), Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window), Specialty Imaging: HRCT of the Lung - Anatomic Basis Imaging Features. Non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema (NCPE) is a rare adverse reaction to iodinated radiocontrast media (RCM), in which all previous cases were immediate reactions. Arguably the most recognized form of noncardiogenic pulmonary edema is acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), which is a noncardiogenic pulmonary edema that has an acute onset secondary to an underlying inflammatory process such as sepsis, pneumonia, gastric aspiration, blood transfusion, pancreatitis, multisystem trauma or trauma to the chest wall, or drug overdose. in- For clinical purposes, pulmonary edema is grossly divided based on pathophysiology in cardiogenic and non-cardiogenic edema. The three principal features are distribution of pulmonary flow, distribution of pulmonary edema, and the width of the vascular pedicle. 1. Noncardiogenic pulmonary edema is an important cause of respiratory disease in dogs and cats but few reports describe its radiographic appearance. The present discussion will be limited to pulmonary edema o~curring in conjunction with (1) cardiac failure, (2) nephritis, and (3) excessive parenteral administration of fluids. [Article in German] Laggner A, Kleinberger G, Czembirek H, Druml W, Lenz K. Non-cardiac pulmonary edema comprises all types of pulmonary edema not caused by increase of left ventricular filling pressure and elevated pulmonary capillary pressure. Gluecker T, Capasso P, Schnyder P et-al. The etiology of non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema includes increased capillary permeability and decreased plasma oncotic pressure. He developed pulmonary edema and fever a day after the procedure. Non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema is a classification of pulmonary edema where the underlying etiology is not due to left ventricular dysfunction. The presented case serves to highlight a rare complication of amlodipine overdose, non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema (NCPE). Pulmonary edema is frequently classified as hydrostatic edema (e.g., cardiogenic pulmonary edema) or edema caused by increased capillary permeability (e.g., noncardiogenic pulmonary edema or capillary leak). Noncardiogenic Pulmonary Edema Aliye O. Bricker, MD Tan-Lucien H. Mohammed, MD, FCCP Key Facts Terminology Acute lung injury is general term for hypoxemic respiratory failure due to alveolar epithelial and capillary endothelial injury ARDS is subset of ALI Acute interstitial pneumonia (AIP) is idiopathic form of ARDS ARDS commonly defined by ratio of PaO2:FiO2 <… i.v. Check for errors and try again. In order to understand non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema, one needs to know how it differs from cardiogenic pulmonary edema (CPE). 2 Clinically, a patient diagnosed with cardiogenic pulmonary edema presents with dyspnea, decreased arterial oxygen saturation, and alveolar infiltrates on chest imaging.

Radiology is one of the most important first line diagnostic tests that can be performed in house and has good sensitivity to orient the differential diagnosis. Re-expansion pulmonary edema is an uncommon but important cause of non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema. A 56-year-old male was given iopamidol, a non-ionic, low osmolar RCM, during coronary artery angiography. injected contrast media, pulmonary oedema is common and seen in 1620% of the cases (8). There are few case reports regarding this topic; 1-5 interestingly, all of them relate to the drug's ophthalmological purpose. Often, chest radiographs of patients with pulmonary edema are not as easily classified in such a dichotomous fashion. When the patient’s heart condition affects the left side of the heart, hydrostatic pressure backs up into the capillary beds surroun… Life-threatening reactions to radiographic contrast media are rare. After intravenous injection of 100 mL iopamidol, the woman … A woman with a history of bladder tumour who had haematuria was referred for an intravenous urogram. Pulmonary edema is differentiated into 2 categories: cardiogenic and noncardiogenic. The conditions predisposed to non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema include acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), lung re-expansion, central nervous system injury, and transfusion-associated lung injuries (Gutschow and Walker, Thoracic imaging: the requisites. Acute interstitial pneumonia (AIP) is idiopathic form of ARDS, ARDS divided into extrapulmonary and pulmonary causes, Typical pattern: Intense pulmonary opacification dependent lung (dorsal lung in supine position), Ground-glass (GG) opacities layered on top of IPO, Normal lung (if any) occupies most nondependent lung, 3 components: IPO, GG, and air layered like water, oil, and air in a glass, Noncardiogenic pulmonary edema, increased permeability edema, shock lung, adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), acute lung injury (ALI), Acute onset of hypoxemic respiratory failure, Nearly any medical or surgical condition may result in ARDS, Common conditions: Sepsis, pneumonia, trauma, aspiration, Best diagnostic clue: Intubated patient with diffuse bilateral lung disease, Patient position/location: Dependent intense pulmonary opacification (IPO) and more nondependent ground-glass opacities (like oil and water in a glass), In contrast to radiographs, strikingly inhomogeneous distribution on CT, Following “typical” appearance idealized; in clinical situations wide range of radiographic abnormalities, Sensitivity and specificity for diagnosis of ARDS (70%), Typical pattern more common with ARDS from extrapulmonary cause, Do not help differentiate ARDS from pulmonary or extrapulmonary cause or distinguish between other causes of diffuse infiltration, IPO-dependent lung (dorsal lung in supine position), Extent of abnormal lung averages 80% of lung volume, Distribution gravity dependent and will evolve into same pattern when placed prone (usually within 10-20 minutes), transitioning to nondependent ground-glass opacities, . pulmonary edema in pulmonary thromboembolism, pulmonary edema following administration of cytokines, pulmonary edema following lung transplantation, post lung volume reduction pulmonary edema, pulmonary edema from anti-snake venom administration, acute unilateral airspace opacification (differential), acute bilateral airspace opacification (differential), acute airspace opacification with lymphadenopathy (differential), chronic unilateral airspace opacification (differential), chronic bilateral airspace opacification (differential), osteophyte induced adjacent pulmonary atelectasis and fibrosis, pediatric chest x-ray in the exam setting, normal chest x-ray appearance of the diaphragm, posterior tracheal stripe/tracheo-esophageal stripe, obliteration of the retrosternal airspace, leflunomide-induced acute interstitial pneumonia, fibrotic non-specific interstitial pneumonia, cellular non-specific interstitial pneumonia, respiratory bronchiolitis–associated interstitial lung disease, diagnostic HRCT criteria for UIP pattern - ATS/ERS/JRS/ALAT (2011), diagnostic HRCT criteria for UIP pattern - Fleischner society guideline (2018)​, domestically acquired particulate lung disease, lepidic predominant adenocarcinoma (formerly non-mucinous BAC), micropapillary predominant adenocarcinoma, invasive mucinous adenocarcinoma (formerly mucinous BAC), lung cancer associated with cystic airspaces, primary sarcomatoid carcinoma of the lung, large cell neuroendocrine cell carcinoma of the lung, squamous cell carcinoma in situ (CIS) of lung, minimally invasive adenocarcinoma of the lung, diffuse idiopathic pulmonary neuroendocrine cell hyperplasia (DIPNECH), calcifying fibrous pseudotumor of the lung, IASLC (International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer) 8th edition (current), IASLC (International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer) 7th edition (superseeded), 1996 AJCC-UICC Regional Lymph Node Classification for Lung Cancer Staging. [Non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema]. Nephrogenic pulmonary edema is described as having a bat-wing distribution. For clinical purposes, pulmonary oedema is grossly divided based on pathophysiology into cardiogenic and non-cardiogenic oedema. Dr. Amna Akram CMH, Multan 2. Non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema is a classification of pulmonary edema where the underlying etiology is not due to left ventricular dysfunction. ... Department of Radiology, Tangdu Hospital, the Fourth Military Medical University, Xi'an, Shaanxi, China. Features are those of nonspecific bilateral airspace opacities, with differentials including pulmonary edema, infection, and pulmonary hemorrhage. Non‐cardiogenic pulmonary edema triggered by a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor is a very rare adverse effect. Decreased cardiac output leads to poor filtration by the kidneys leading to fluid accumulation within the vasculature. Pulmonary oedema can be cardiogenic (high pressure) or non-cardiogenic (increased vascular permeability). Many causes of NPE exist, including drowning, acute glomerulonephritis, fluid overload, aspiration, inhalation injury, neurogenic pulmonary edema, allergic reaction, and adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS)… Pulmonary edema 1. The exact differentiation and diagnosis is made based on a combination of clinical and radiological findings and considerations. Cardiogenic pulmonary edema is frequently caused by acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF). Non-cardiogenic acute pulmonary edema in elderly patient with Dressler syndrome associated pulmonary embolism. The ancillary features are pulmonary blood volume, peribronchial cuffing, septal lines, pleural effusions, air bronchograms, lung volume, and cardiac size.
