The relationship between splenic length in healthy children from the Eastern Anatolia Region and sex, age, body height and weight

Mete Özdikici

Purposes The normal limits of spleen size must be known in order for pathological changes to be noticed. The aim of this retrospective study is to determine the normal limits of spleen size in healthy children and to reveal their relation to sex, age, body height and weight. Patients and methods Three hundred and ten children (150 girls and 160 boys) between 0–16 years of age in Eastern Anatolia Region who had normal spleen ultrasound appearances were included in this study. The greatest longitu(..)

Cartilaginous compression of the liver – clinical and ultrasonographic aspects

Andrzej Smereczyński/ Katarzyna Kołaczyk

Introduction The musculocartilaginous complex is a structure composed of cartilaginous, osseous and muscular elements, which is located at the thoracoabdominal junction, at the level of the right costal arch. Aim To determine the ultrasonographic characteristics of this complex under normal conditions as well as to demonstrate its effects on the liver depending on the constitutional body built, respiratory phase and patient’s body position. Materials and methods All abdominal ultrasound scans we(..)

The sonoanatomy of lumbar erector spinae and its iliac attachment – the potential substrate of the iliac crest pain syndrome, an ultrasound study in healthy subjects

Plamen Todorov/ Rodina Nestorova/ Anastas Batalov

Background Iliac crest pain syndrome is a regional pain syndrome that has been identified in many patients with low back pain. Based on anatomical studies, it was suggested that the potential substrate of this syndrome might be the enthesis of the erector spinae muscle at the posterior medial iliac crest. As there have been no imaging studies of this important enthesis, our aim was to assess its characteristics by ultrasound. Methods Erector spinae enthesis was first studied in a cadaver. Then i(..)

Utility of Doppler parameters at 36–42 weeks’ gestation in the prediction of adverse perinatal outcomes in appropriate-for-gestational-age fetuses

Michał Migda/ Katarzyna Gieryn/ Bartosz Migda/ Marian Stanisław Migda/ Marek Maleńczyk

Aim To investigate the potential value of Doppler ultrasound and to assess cerebroplacental ratio (CPR) in the prediction of adverse perinatal outcome defined as Apgar score < 7 at 1 minute. Material and methods This was a retrospective cross-sectional study in selected pregnant women undergoing an ultrasound examination between 36 and 42 weeks of gestation. We measured estimated fetal weight (EFW), mean umbilical artery pulsatility index (UA PI), mean middle cerebral artery pulsatility index (M(..)

Diagnostic accuracy of sonoelastography in different diseases

Iqra Manzoor/ Raham Bacha/ Syed Amir Gilani

The objective of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of sonoelastography in patients of primary and secondary health care settings. Google scholar, PubMed, Medline, Medscape, Wikipedia and NCBI were searched in October 2017 for all original studies and review articles to identify the relevant material. Two reviewers independently selected articles for evaluation of the diagnostic accuracy of sonoelastography in different diseases based on titles and abstracts retrieved by the lite(..)

Clinical applications of spleen ultrasound elastography – a review

Rafał Mazur/ Milena Celmer/ Jurand Silicki/ Daniel Hołownia/ Patryk Pozowski/ Krzysztof Międzybrodzki

In the last few years, notable technical progress has taken place in ultrasound elastography. Qualitative methods have been replaced by quantitative ones, such as: transient elastography, acoustic radiation force impulse and shear wave elastography. Owing to the fact that the spleen is superficially located, it is possible to obtain reliable measuring accuracy of its hardness using sonoelastography. Lately, many researchers have been investigating how spleen elasticity changes in patients infect(..)

Diabetic foot syndrome: Charcot arthropathy or osteomyelitis? Part I: Clinical picture and radiography

Aleksandra Konarzewska/ Anna Korzon-Burakowska/ Ludomira Rzepecka-Wejs/ Iwona Sudoł-Szopińska/ Edyta Szurowska/ Michał Studniarek

One of significant challenges faced by diabetologists, surgeons and orthopedists who care for patients with diabetic foot syndrome is early diagnosis and differentiation of bone structure abnormalities typical of these patients, i.e. osteitis and Charcot arthropathy. In addition to clinical examination, the patient’s medical history and laboratory tests, imaging plays a significant role. The evaluation usually begins with conventional radiographs. In the case of osteomyelitis, radiography shows (..)

Current knowledge on the use of ultrasound measurements of fetal soft tissues for the assessment of pregnancy development

Aleksandra Warska/ Anna Maliszewska/ Anna Wnuk/ Beata Szyszka/ Włodzimierz Sawicki/ Krzysztof Cendrowski

Ultrasonography, with its detailed imaging of the fetus, is very widely used in obstetrics. The primary aim of ultrasound scanning in pregnancy is to limit the risk of obstetric complications by early detection of abnormalities, such as intrauterine growth restriction and macrosomia. Currently, morphometric formulae are used for estimating fetal weight. They utilize basic biometric parameters. However, Hadlock formula, used for fetal weight estimation, has an error rate of 20%. For this reason, (..)

Cesarean scar pregnancy – a new challenge for obstetricians

Piotr Pędraszewski/ Edyta Wlaźlak/ Wojciech Panek/ Grzegorz Surkont

Diagnosis and treatment of ectopic cesarean scar pregnancy has become a challenge for contemporary obstetrics. With an increase in the number of pregnancies concluded with a cesarean section and with the development of transvaginal ultrasonography, the frequency of cesarean scar pregnancy diagnoses has increased as well. The aim of the study is to evaluate various diagnostic methods (ultrasonography in particular) and analyze effective treatment methods for cesarean scar pregnancy. An ultrasound(..)

Bacterial meningitis in neonates and infants – the sonographic picture

Błażej Littwin/ Andrzej Pomiećko/ Monika Stępień-Roman/ Zeno Spârchez/ Wojciech Kosiak

Bacterial meningitis is a major diagnostic and therapeutic problem among children and neonates, with severe, rapidly progressing course and potentially life-threatening complications. Early antibacterial treatment is essential for the patient’s favorable prognosis. Cerebral imaging plays an important role in the diagnostic process alongside physical examination and laboratory tests. Magnetic resonance imaging is the gold standard for diagnosing bacterial meningitis. Because of limited availabili(..)

Anomalous origin of the right coronary artery from the main pulmonary artery treated surgically in a 6-week-old infant. A case report and review of the literature

Krzysztof Grabowski/ Maciej Aleksander Karolczak/ Ewa Zacharska-Kokot/ Wojciech Mądry/ Jacek Pająk

Background In the present paper, the authors describe a case of a rare congenital defect – anomalous origin of the right coronary artery from the main pulmonary artery diagnosed in a 5-week-old infant who was deemed eligible for surgical treatment based solely on echocardiography. Such anatomical abnormalities of the coronary arteries are subtle and thus extremely difficult to visualize, especially in patients in whom permanent extensive damage of the cardiac muscle has not yet occurred. For thi(..)
