Overview

Tracheal deviation is defined as the position of the trachea away from its normal position in the midline to one side.

Causes

The causes can be divided into two main groups: Deviation toward the cause of the problem, and deviation away from the cause of the problem.

Tracheal Deviation Toward the Lung Problem

This scenario occurs when the pressure in the lung and pleural cavity is less than the other side, and the trachea shifts toward the side with reduced pressure expanding it:
