Thanks for your query at
I apologize for the delay.
I went through the X-rays in detail.
On comparison of the two frontal & two lateral chest x-Rays dated 2014 & 2015 in a known case of coarctation of aorta repaired twice with bicuspid aortic valve & raised right dome of diaphragm
It was found that
There is a radiological reduction in the peri-bronchial cuffing noted in both hilar regions, suggestive of reduction in the bilateral hilar peri bronchitis.
The right dome of diaphragm is raised & radiologically unchanged
Rest of the visualised bilateral lung fields cardiac & aortic shadows are unremarkable
There is no significant change between the two.
Also, there are no significant complications presently.
Feel free to discuss if you have any questions

Patient replied :

So was the reduction in the peri-bronchial cuffing noted on all X-rays? What could cause that?

the reduction was seen in recent X-ray which suggest reduced bronchitis and inflammation.
Hope it clears the confusion

Patient replied :

Thank you for the reply. Out of curiosity, are the liver and spleen visible on a chest xray?

Yes, they could be. Spleen can only be visible if it is enlarged.
