Ultrasound image of malignant bone tumors in children. An analysis of nine patients diagnosed in 2011–2016

Tomasz Madej/ Joanna Flak-Nurzyńska/ Ewa Dutkiewicz/ Anna Ciechomska/ Jerzy Kowalczyk/ Andrzej Paweł Wieczorek

Introduction: The diagnostic process of bone tumors, including malignant ones, is based on conventional radiological methods, such as radiography and computed tomography, and with precise assessment of local advancement in magnetic resonance imaging. Ultrasonography is not included in the diagnostic algorithms as a tool suitable to detect this type of pathology. More and more frequent usage of musculoskeletal ultrasound in children as the first imaging method or, in some cases, as the only diagn(..)

Aim: An assessment of increased compensatory blood flow in the brain-supplying arteries in patients with significant carotid artery stenosis. Materials and methods: Doppler ultrasound was performed in 218 patients over 60 years of age to evaluate both the degree of brain-supplying artery stenosis as well as the blood flow volume balance in all vessels supplying the brain: the internal carotid artery, the external carotid artery and the vertebral artery. The control group included 94 patients wit(..)

3D/4D contrast-enhanced urosonography (ceVUS) in children – is it superior to the 2D technique?

Magdalena Maria Woźniak/ Paweł Osemlak/ Aikaterini Ntoulia/ Halina Borzęcka/ Beata Bieniaś/ Agnieszka Brodzisz/ Grzegorz Jędrzejewski/ Anna Drelich-Zbroja/ Maciej Powerski/ Maciej Pech/ Andrzej Paweł Wieczorek

Background: By now, two-dimensional contrast-enhanced voiding urosonography (ceVUS) has become a well-established method for the diagnosis and treatment monitoring of vesicoureteral reflux in children, particularly after the recent approval for this application in children in the USA and in Europe. The introduction of three-dimensional static (3D) and real-time (4D) techniques with ultrasound contrast agents opens up new diagnostic opportunities for this imaging modality. Objective: To analyze w(..)

Aim of the study: The aim of this study is to assess the prevalence and evolution of perirenal fluid collections in a group of 488 patients who have undergone kidney transplantation. Material and methods: Sonographic documentation of 488 deceased-donor kidney recipients was evaluated for the prevalence of perirenal fluid collections and their evolution in time, depending on selected demographic features of the patients, time of detection, initial dimensions and precise position of the collection(..)

Intima–media complex thickness and carotid atherosclerotic plaque formation in Lublin’s population in the context of selected comorbidities

Tomasz Słomka/ Anna Drelich-Zbroja/ Magdalena Jarząbek/ Małgorzata Szczerbo-Trojanowska

Introduction: Atherosclerosis (arteriosclerosis) is a chronic arterial disease of the arteries with chronic inflammatory. The pathology of atherosclerosis is complex, and the atherosclerotic process is multi-factorial, not fully understood. Risk factors of atherosclerotic lesions may include: lipid disorders, hypertension or diabetes. One of the diagnostic methods of discovering atherosclerosis covers the assessment of the intima–media complex thickness by Doppler ultrasonography. Aim: The aim o(..)

Ascites Index – an attempt to objectify the assessment of ascites

Piotr Szkodziak/ Piotr Czuczwar/ Krzysztof Pyra/ Filip Szkodziak/ Tomasz Paszkowski/ Hugo Rio Tinto/ Sławomir Woźniak

Introduction: Ascites is observed in cancer patients as well as in other non-neoplastic processes. In some patients, it may cause severe symptoms that can become directly life-threatening. The assessment of the degree of ascites seems useful in the determination of treatment effects as well as in the monitoring of fluid accumulation and early planning of decompression procedures. Aim: Determination of the clinical usefulness of a quantitative method of determining the degree of ascites, so-calle(..)

Visceral artery aneurysms – classification, diagnosis and treatment

Ewa Piasek/ Michał Sojka/ Maryla Kuczyńska/ Łukasz Światłowski/ Anna Drelich-Zbroja/ Olga Furmaga/ Tomasz Jargiełło

Although visceral artery aneurysms are rare, mortality due to their rupture is high, estimated at even 25–75%. That is why it is significant to detect each such lesion. Visceral artery aneurysms are usually asymptomatic and found incidentally during examinations performed for other indications. Autopsy results suggest that most asymptomatic aneurysms remain undiagnosed during lifetime. Their prevalence in the population is therefore higher. The manifestation of a ruptured aneurysm depends on its(..)

Ultrasound screening for pyelectasis in pregnant women. Clinical necessity or “art for art’s sake”?

Piotr Szkodziak

Renal pelvicalyceal dilatation is caused by urine retention in the upper urinary tract. It is referred to as pyelectasis in medical literature. This term does not indicate the cause that leads to the dilatation of and urine retention in the renal pelvicalyceal system. Mild pelvicalyceal dilatation during pregnancy is usually considered to be physiological in nature – it can occur in up to 90% of pregnant women. Retention is more common in the right kidney, in primigravidae, in the second half of(..)

The role of ultrasonography in methotrexate therapy for ectopic pregnancy

Piotr Czuczwar

Medical management of ectopic pregnancy with methotrexate, an antimetabolite of folic acid, is an important alternative to surgical treatment, as it ensures a similar outcome whilst being far less invasive. Ultrasound evaluation does not only facilitate an accurate diagnosis, but also helps to select patients most likely to benefit from methotrexate treatment, as opposed to those with a high likelihood of failure of medical management, who are thus eligible for primary surgical treatment. Ultras(..)

Ultrasonographic criteria of cesarean scar defect evaluation

Andrzej Woźniak/ Krzysztof Pyra/ Hugo Rio Tinto/ Sławomir Woźniak

Cesarean sections account for approximately 20% of all deliveries worldwide. In Poland, the percentage of women delivering by cesarean section amounts to over 43%. According to studies, the prevalence of cesarean scar defects ranges from 24–70%. Due to the overall cesarean section rate, this is a medical problem affecting a large population of women. In such cases, ultrasonographic evaluation of a cesarean scar reveals a hypoechoic space filled with postmenstrual blood, representing a myometrial(..)

Diagnosis and treatment of posttraumatic arteriovenous fistula in the lower leg – a case report

Jan Sobstyl/ Maryla Kuczyńska/ Ewa Kuklik/ Łukasz Światłowski/ Maria Tsitskari/ Tomasz Jargiełło

External injuries are one of the common reasons for reporting to hospital emergency departments. Peripheral vascular injuries occur in up to about 25% of upper and lower extremity injury cases. Arteriovenous fistula is a type of arterial injury. Doppler ultrasound is currently the primary diagnostic method for vascular injuries as it allows for the implementation of appropriately targeted treatment, indicating the potential need for extended diagnosis or patient qualification for endovascular or(..)

Renal artery pseudoaneurysms and arteriovenous fistulae most often occur as an iatrogenic complication. The article discusses a case of a patient diagnosed with an arteriovenous fistula and a pseudoaneurysm. A 64-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital due to nonspecific pain in the lumbar region. Imaging showed a typical picture of clear cell renal carcinoma. The patient was qualified for surgical treatment. After tumor resection, the patient developed microhematuria. Arteriovenous fistula (..)
