Comparing intrapartum ultrasound and clinical examination in the assessment of fetal head position in African women

Yaw A. Wiafe/ Bill Whitehead/ Heather Venables/ Edward T. Dassah

Abstract Introduction: We aimed to examine the agreement between intrapartum ultrasound and digital vaginal examination in assessing the occiput position in black African women who were in the first stage of labor and to evaluate the influence of ruptured membranes on this agreement. Material and method: This was a cross-sectional study conducted in a teaching hospital in Ghana. Transabdominal ultrasound determination of the fetal head position was compared with digital vaginal examination of wo(..)

Color Doppler ultrasound of spiral artery blood flow in mid first trimester (4–8 weeks) in cases of threatened abortion and in normal pregnancies

Rohit Bhoil/ Sushruti Kaushal/ Reena Sharma/ Jaswinder Kaur/ Tanupriya Sharma/ Rohini Thakur/ Rakesh Sharma

Abstract Introduction: The aim of the study was to evaluate and compare the spiral artery flow in mid first trimester (4–8 weeks) in cases of threatened abortion and in normal pregnancies. Material and methods: Spiral artery was sonographically evaluated in 50 patients comprising two groups of 25 women each. The first group included patients presenting with threatened miscarriage (vaginal bleeding/spotting with or without abdominal pain). The second group comprised of females who had no complica(..)

The use of high-frequency ultrasonography in the assessment of selected female reproductive structures: the vulva, vagina and cervix

Marian Stanisław Migda/ Michał Migda/ Rafał Słapa/ Robert Krzysztof Mlosek/ Bartosz Migda

Abstract Introduction: High-frequency ultrasonography enables visualization the layered structure of the skin and shows the epidermis, dermis, subcutaneous tissue and skin appendages: hair follicles, sebaceous glands, sweat glands and blood vessels. The aim of this study was to apply high-frequency ultrasonography to evaluate the structure of the vulva, vagina and cervix, and to describe their anatomy in ultrasound. Material and method: The examinations were conducted with the use of high-freque(..)

Gallbladder diseases in pregnancy: Sonographic findings in an indigenous African population

Bukunmi Michael Idowu/ Stephen Olaoluwa Onigbinde/ Isaiah Uzezi Ebie/ Michael Temidayo Adeyemi

Abstract Aim of the study: This study aimed to evaluate the prevalence of gallbladder disease in gravid Nigerian women and to elucidate any association with gravidity and ABO blood group. Materials and Methods: This was a descriptive cross-sectional study of six hundred and fifty-six (656) pregnant women recruited from March 2015 to March 2016. Hemoglobin genotype and blood group were recorded and a sonographic examination was performed using Siemens ultrasound scanner. Statistical analysis was (..)

Correlation between portal vein diameter and craniocaudal length of the spleen

Shah Zaman/ Syed Amir Gilani/ Raham Bacha/ Iqra Manzoor/ Zain Ul Hasan

Abstract Objective: To determine the correlation between portal vein diameter and spleen size (craniocaudal). Methodology: The study was conducted at the University Ultrasound Clinic, The University of Lahore, Lahore Pakistan from 1st January to 1st July 2013. All the individuals who referred for abdominal sonographic examination, including male, female, older and younger were conveniently included in the study, voluntarily, irrespective of the disease state. Ultrasonographic measurements of the(..)

The usefulness of high-frequency ultrasonography in the evaluation of vulvar dermatoses in postmenopausal women – a preliminary report

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

Abstract Introduction: The vulva is an external female genital organ with complex anatomy and histology. In postmenopausal women, this region is at particular risk of different types of conditions known as dermatoses. Materials and methods: We assessed benign vulvar skin lesions using high-frequency 48 MHz ultrasound transducer (DermaView) prior to biopsy or excision. We compared ultrasonographic images with histology. Results: We assessed benign vulvar lesions such as folliculitis, condylomata (..)

Fetal cardiac function by three-dimensional ultrasound using 4D-STIC and VOCAL – an update

Nathalie Jeanne Bravo-Valenzuela/ Alberto Borges Peixoto/ Milene Carvalho Carrilho/ Ana Letícia Siqueira Pontes/ Caroline Cevante Chagas/ Christiane Simioni/ Edward Araujo Júnior

Abstract Three- and four-dimensional (3D/4D) ultrasonography with spatio-temporal image correlation (4D-STIC) allows obtaining fetal cardiac volumes and their static and real-time analysis in multiplanar and rendering modes. Cardiac biometrics and Doppler-echocardiographic parameters for evaluation of fetal heart function, including cardiac output and stroke volume, can be analyzed using M-mode, two-dimensional (2D), and 3D/4D cardiac ultrasound. In recent years, functional echocardiography has (..)

Role of intrapartum ultrasound in modern obstetrics – current perspectives and literature review

Małgorzata Siergiej/ Iwona Sudoł-Szopińska/ Jerzy Zwoliński/ Anna Maria Śladowska-Zwolińska

Abstract For many years, the progress of labour has been traditionally evaluated almost exclusively by transvaginal digital assessment which, by its very nature, is an imprecise and, above all, subjective examination. Appropriate assessment of foetal head station and position in the birth canal is of critical importance for predicting further progress and safe completion of labour by instrumental or surgical intervention. In view of the deficiency of diagnostic methods available in the delivery (..)

Prenatal diagnosis of congenital megalourethra in the second trimester of pregnancy

Do Duy Anh/ Ha To Nguyen/ Simon Meagher/ Edward Araujo Júnior

Abstract Congenital megalourethra is abnormal dilation of the penile urethra due to aplasia of erectile tissue, leading to lower urinary tract obstruction. This condition should be considered when fetal penis with typical dilation is seen on prenatal scan. The dilated structure, however, can be easily missed or misinterpreted as the umbilical cord. Perinatal prognosis is poor due to direct consequences on urinary and respiratory systems, or due to severe associated anomalies. A large number of s(..)

The usefulness of high-frequency ultrasonography in the preoperative evaluation of vulvar cancer – a case series

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

Abstract Vulvar cancer is a malignancy of female lower genital tract with incidence of 1:100,000 in Poland. The most common types of vulvar cancers are squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma. This study was approved by the board of the Clinical Unit of Obstetrics, Women’s Disease and Gynecological Oncology, United District Hospital, Collegium Medicum University of Nicolaus Copernicus in Toruń, Poland. This is a tertiary reference center. We analyzed cases of postmenopausal women diagno(..)

The utility of high-frequency ultrasonography in preoperative assessment of vulvar Paget’s disease – a case report

Michał Migda/ Marian Stanisław Migda/ Bartosz Migda/ Robert Krzysztof Mlosek/ Marek Maleńczyk

Abstract Paget’s disease of the vulva is a rare skin cancer accounting for less than 1% of all vulvar neoplasias. Surgery is the first treatment of choice. Unfortunately, it is insufficient in many cases, which require further treatment, and the risk of recurrence is high. We present a case of an 85-year-old woman who underwent surgery due to Paget’s disease of the vulva. A preoperative skin imaging using a high-frequency 48 MHz mechanical probe was used to assess the lesion margins. Typical hig(..)

Prenatal diagnosis of congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries

Nathalie Jeanne Bravo-Valenzuela/ Alberto Borges Peixoto/ Edward Araujo Júnior

Abstract Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries is a rare and complex congenital heart disease. It essentially occurs with atrioventricular and ventriculoarterial discordance, in which the great vessels become parallel. Cases of corrected transposition of the great arteries are more frequently associated with other cardiac anomalies. In the fetus, corrected transposition of the great arteries may not be diagnosed on obstetric cardiac ultrasound, especially in the absence of o(..)
