Sample text

Treatment was limited to the purely symptomatic. Radiographic procedure: Multiple views were made of the thorax. Radiographic diagnosis: The injury to the right thoracic wall was long-standing with malunion rib fractures and thickened pleural shadows indicative of pleural scaring. The cardiac shift toward the site of injury suggested pleural adhesions with atelectasis. The lesion was not identified on the lateral view. 11 Signalment/History: “Quake” was an 8-year-old, male Schnauzer mixed-breed with a history of a left-sided thoracic mass thought to be secondary to a bite wound.

A pneumoperitoneum was suspected. The status of the diaphragm was uncertain, especially in the region of the esophageal hiatus. Metallic shotgun pellets were noted, but were thought to be incidental. Thorax wall injury 43 2 Day 2 Radiographic diagnosis (day 2): The pneumothorax was persistent, however, the pulmonary contusion/atelectasis was less than in the referral radiographs. Pneumomediastinum could now be seen. The subcutaneous emphysema on the left was still evident. The fractured ribs showed further separation between the 5th and 6th ribs on the left.

Two right lateral views were made, one on greater inspiration. Radiographic diagnosis: A marked infiltrative pattern within the lung lobes was located primarily in the middle and caudal lobes on the right (DV). The pattern was assumed to be interstitial since an air-bronchogram pattern could not be identified. Subcutaneous emphysema was more severe on the left and a single metallic pellet lay in the soft tissue at the level of the 9th rib on the left. Fracture of the 7th rib on the right with a small metallic fragment adjacent to the fracture site suggested the shot had passed through the thorax.
