The importance of community screening of asymptomatic elderly for peripheral arterial disease by Doppler ultrasound and ankle-brachial index

BackgroundPeripheral arterial disease is an atherosclerotic disease characterized by an increase in morbidity and mortality. For these reasons early diagnosis of peripheral arterial disease is important. Ankle-brachial systolic pressure index measurement is frequently used in screening studies. Evaluating waveforms of distal lower extremities with Doppler ultrasound can be used as a screening program and provides more accurate information on peripheral arterial disease.AimWe investigate the

flow. Venous malformations presented as irregular, hypoechoic spaces with venous blood flow, easily compressed by the probe. Extracranial carotid artery aneurysms were hypoechoic, well-defined spaces, which presented with slow internal, turbulent flow on Doppler study, and showed continuity with the carotid artery. Conclusions: Doppler ultrasound allows to visualize features characteristic for certain neck tumors. Solid or cystic structure, echogenicity, localization, as well as internal flow

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

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

Recommendations for ultrasonographic assessment of renal arteries

Abstract The present clinical practice recommendations are addressed to physicians of all specialties, who perform Doppler ultrasound examinations of the kidneys on a daily basis, and in particular to specialists in radiology and imaging diagnostics. The recommendations were based on the Ultrasonography Standards of the Polish Ultrasound Society and current scientific reports consistent with Evidence Based Medicine. The paper discusses patient preparation protocol, examinat ion technique with

Association of spectral Doppler cardiac activity in the lower limb veins and echocardiographic findings in patients with tricuspid regurgitation

approximately 21 mm/m2 measured at the end-diastole of four-chamber transthoracic view of the heart, this is known as significant tricuspid regurgitation. Significant tethering is attributed to a coaptation distance >8 mm. Abnormal RV function is attributable to tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion <1.5 cm or fractional area shortening <35%(12). Spectral Doppler ultrasound plays a crucial role in providing data about hemodynamic changes in the circulating blood flow. Spectral Doppler information

(29 × 39 mm). Doppler ultrasound showed increased flow resistance in the corticomedullary border to 0.76 on the right and 0.72 on the left. The enhancement curves from both parts of the kidney were similar with a slightly delayed inflow and outflow of contrast in the right part. The renal pelvis did not enhance and was used as a reference point (Fig. 5, Fig. 6, Fig. 7). The urinary bladder remained difficult to fully evaluate.

Transvaginal Doppler ultrasound is a non-invasive and widely available screening method for disorders of placental function early in pregnancy and may be used to predict a number of obstetric complications that can be linked to defective placentation and implantation. We carried out this study to demonstrate whether the possible modifications in blood flow patterns in spiral arteries can be picked up on trans-vaginal Doppler sonography carried in the mid first trimester (4–8

cerebral overflow in patients with preeclampsia with the help of ophthalmic artery Doppler ultrasound may be a marker of the risk of cerebral hemorrhage and may be able to determine the severity in patients with preeclampsia(13). On the other hand, the uteroplacental circulation is crucial for a normal pregnancy outcome. Elevated resistive index (RI), pulsatility index (PI) or systolic to diastolic (S/D) ratios and the presence of a diastolic notch are considered as abnormal uterine artery flow

The importance of blood flow volume in the brain-supplying arteries for the clinical management – the impact of collateral circulation

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
