Most enlarged lymph nodes were pretracheal
, with a mean short axis diameter of 1.
Multiple marginally enlarged lymph nodes were noted at pretracheal
, right paratracheal, subcarinal region and at aortopulmonary window; but once again, the aetiology of SVC syndrome remained undiagnosed as no lymph node or mass was found to compress SVC.
The gland is ensheathed by the pretracheal
layer of deep cervical fascia.
Ectopic thyroid tissue (ETT) is an uncommon developmental abnormality that remains in areas along the thyroglossal duct tract, between the foramen cecum to the pretracheal
have used pretracheal
fat assessment at the level of the vocal cords as a predictor of a difficult airway.
The delphian nodes and pretracheal
lymph nodes should be also removed as part of such dissection.
The condensation of the fibrous stroma of the gland forms the inner true capsule, while the splitting of the pretracheal
fascia forms the outer false capsule of the gland.
The severe bleeding attacks which were found in the follow-up of our patients included iliopsoas bleeding in four patients, hematuria in three patients, intracranial bleeding in one patient, pretracheal
bleeding in one patient, gastrointestinal bleeding in four patients and compartment syndrome in one patient (Table 3).
Thoracic metastases, consisted of foci in the lobes of the lung parenchyma, lymph node metastases, which include axillary lymph nodes and mediastinal lymph node, as prevascular, pretracheal
lymph nodes, as well pulmoaortic window lymph nodes.
The chest computed tomography scan revealed two opacities located pretracheal
and on the chest and a tissue mass on the mediastinum and on the left lung hil with loco- regional invasion multiple bulky lymph nodes above and below diaphragm and a liver mass of 1.
10 Digital compression consists of inserting fingers into pretracheal
space to tamponade the innominate artery against the manubrium.
CT of the chest and pelvis revealed multiple masses in the pretracheal
and subcarinal regions, as well as a 6 x 5 cm fluid collection lateral to the right upper iliac crest with adjacent bony erosion (Figure 3).
