Abstract

Venous air embolism (VAE) is a well-known posttraumatic and iatrogenic complication. Three case studies are presented to illustrate the radiographic manifestations of VAE, which include air in the pulmonary artery, heart, and central veins; atelectasis; and pulmonary edema. The clinical manifestations of VAE, its initial management, and the occurrence of the adult respiratory distress syndrome after VAE are discussed.
