A 65-year-old woman presented with pain in her throat and neck. Thin-section computed tomography (CT) revealed an air-filled lesion at the right paratracheal region and two narrow connections to the trachea. Flexible bronchoscopy showed four diverticula 4-5 cm below the vocal cords in the right lateral part of the trachea. Consistent with the CT findings, two of the diverticula were deep. A radiological barium swallow study and an esopagogastroduodenal endoscopic examination revealed no… Expand
Voice Change Due to Paratracheal Air Cysts
TLDR
A case of a 59-year-old male patient who presented with voice change, and the cause was identified as paratracheal air cysts on a chest CT scan, which prompted surgical resection via video-assisted mediastinoscopy. Expand
Thoracic Esophagus Cancer Revealing a Tracheal Diverticulum.
TLDR
A careful preoperative evaluation of computed tomography and operation are necessary to avoid injury of tracheal diverticulum during thoracoscopic esophagectomy for esophageal cancer revealing a tracheo-diverticulum. Expand
Thoracoscopic resection of esophageal cancer with a tracheal diverticulum
TLDR
The case of a 76-year-old man with a tracheal diverticulum who underwent thoracoscopic esophagectomy with a three-field lymphadenectomy for middle thoracic esophageal cancer is reported. Expand
Infected tracheocoele (acquired tracheal diverticulum): case report and literature review
TLDR
The case of a 72-year-old man with a previously identified tracheocoele which became symptomatic following an upper respiratory tract infection illustrates the fact that significant symptoms can develop; excision should therefore be considered. Expand
Tracheal diverticula in infants: a report of three cases.
TLDR
Three cases with congenital tracheal diverticula, which were diagnosed by imaging techniques, are reported, which are thought to be congenital or acquired. Expand
Paratracheal air cysts using low-dose screening chest computed tomography: clinical significance and imaging findings
TLDR
The paratracheal air cysts were mostly located at the right side of the trachea and at the thoracic inlet level and are not associated with respiratory symptoms or obstructive lung disease clinically or radiologically. Expand
Esophageal cancer revealing a tracheal diverticulum.
TLDR
A patient is presented with a patient with tracheal diverticulum combination with esophageal cancer and the correlation between these two lesions is analyzed. Expand
Variations of the tracheobronchial tree: Anatomical and clinical significance
TLDR
The most commonly encountered variations, tracheal bronchus and accessory cardiac bronchu, along with three minor abnormalities of this region are described and the various imaging modalities in the diagnosis and treatment of these conditions are reviewed. Expand
Prevalence and characteristics of paratracheal air cysts and their association with emphysema in a general population.
TLDR
The presence of paratracheal air cysts is a common condition in general populations and should not be misdiagnosed as abnormal paratRacheal free air, and the emphysema index in patients of both genders showed no evidence of emphySEma. Expand

The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of paratracheal air cysts (PACs), their correlation with different lung diseases and their connection with the trachea by chest multiExpand

Tracheal diverticulum in an asymptomatic male: a case report
TLDR
This malformation is a rare anomaly with two types, the congenital and the acquired one and must be included into the differential diagnosis of any air filled lesion at the thoracic inlet. Expand
Paratracheal Air Cysts Communicating with the Trachea: CT Findings
TLDR
In three adult patients with air-filled paratracheal cysts communicating with the tracheal lumen, the communication was recognized at surgical resection and in the other two cases, the orifice in thetracheal wall appeared as a tiny, well-circumscribed hole at fiberoptic bronchoscopy. Expand
Tracheal Diverticulum Presenting with Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve Paralysis
TLDR
A 70-year-old woman referred to the authors' Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery for severe acute dyspnea, stridor, and dysphagia had experienced several episodes of tracheobronchitis in the past, and a diagnosis of polyarthritis had been made 12 years earlier. Expand
Right paratracheal air cysts in the thoracic inlet: clinical and radiologic significance.
TLDR
The most probable nature of a right paratracheal air cyst in the thoracic inlet is tracheal diverticulum with a narrow stalk and could be a sign of obstructive lung disease clinically and of the presence of emphysema radiologically. Expand

TLDR

TLDR
Right paratracheal air cysts are a common CT finding that occur in a predictable location and are seen in approximately 3% to 4% of the US population, while the cause is unclear but may be either congenital or an acquired phenomenon. Expand
