Partial presentation is frequent in the anteromedial region of the right hemidiaphragm, whereas complete presentation is commonly found in the left hemidiaphragm [12].
Diaphragmatic factors include the elevation of the right hemidiaphragm, such as eventration or phrenic nerve injury, and the hepatic factors include atrophy of the liver due to cirrhosis or congenital etiology (atrophic or small liver, segmental agenesis of the right lobe of the liver).
The methods used here were modified from our previous studies.[sup][10],[11] The left hemidiaphragm with attached phrenic nerve, central tendon, and rib cage intact was rapidly moved and immediately immersed in Krebs solution that was maintained at 37[degrees]C and continuously bubbled with 95% O[sub]2/5% CO[sub]2.
1) in both lungs and an elevated right hemidiaphragm. There was a vascular mass with central areas of breakdown in the right lobe of the liver, measuring 12.3 cm x 19.0 cm x 20.7 cm (Fig.

(119) Shrinking lung syndrome, a late-stage complication of SLE, characterized by restrictive pattern pulmonary function tests and elevated hemidiaphragm, has also rarely been reported in patients with SLE and SS overlap.
In diaphragmatic eventration, permanent elevation of an immobile hemidiaphragm occurs in which peripheral muscular attachment is normal with no interruption in peritoneal or pleural layers.
Mostly these follow concomitant rupture of the spleen and left hemidiaphragm (5).
She had a restrictive pattern on her spirometry, and had a raised right hemidiaphragm. She most likely had some gut and urinary smooth muscle dysfunction.
The mid portion of the left hemidiaphragm was not clearly defined (Fig.
Nonetheless, common anteroposterior radiographic findings include (1) increased opacification, (2) mediastinal/tracheal shift toward the ipsilateral (affected) side, (3) hilar displacement, (4) elevation of the hemidiaphragm on the ipsilateral side, (5) compensatory hyperinflation of the contralateral lung, (6) crowded pulmonary vasculature, and (7) fissure displacement toward the affected region.
