AimThe goal of the paper was to evaluate the procedure of percutaneous drainage of symptomatic hepatic cysts under the transabdominal ultrasound control combined with obliteration.Material and methodWithin the period from 2005 to 2015, 70 patients diagnosed with a simple hepatic cyst of symptomatic nature were subject to hospitalization and treated at the 2nd General, Gastroenterological and Cancer Surgery of the Alimentary System Center and Clinics of the Medical University of Lublin. All the

Introduction: To date, suction drainage has been routinely used after hip joint replacement. Currently, the validity of this practice is questioned in the literature. Hematoma is a risk factor of periprosthetic infection. Post-operative ultrasonography enables precise assessment of hip joint hematoma. Aim: The aim of the study was to evaluate the usefulness of hip joint ultrasonography with respect to the validity of using suction drainage after primary hip arthroplasty. Material

External ventricular drainage systems are often necessary in neurological and neurosurgical patients. The purpose of this literature review is to review the problem of external ventricular drain related infections resulting from repeated cerebrospinal fluid sampling and manipulation of the drain systems. The aim is to provide an appropriate improved protocol for care of patients undergoing external ventricular drainage treatment. Routine analysis of cerebrospinal fluid is often performed to

Total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage (TAPVD) is a cyanotic heart defect. TAPVD accounts for around 1.5% of all congenital heart defects(1) (1:10 000 live births(2)). Depending on morphological variants of the pulmonary venous drainage to the heart, four types of the defect may be distinguished: supracardiac (the most common, around 45% of reported cases(1,3)), intracardiac, infracardiac and mixed.
Cyanosis, which accompanies TAPVD, depends on the effectiveness of the collateral

acute infl ammatory lesions in the pancreas, especially during the surgery of chronic, symptomatic infl ammation of the organ. The procedure allows for a correct determination of the necessary scope of the planned surgery. The examination allows for the differentiation between cystic lesions and tumors of cystic nature, dictates the correct strategy for draining, as well as validates the indications for the lesion’s surgical removal. IOUS also allows the estimation of place and scope of drainage

universal freight cars’ residual operation time, allows to calculate equivalent stress using test results that rely on a change of internal pressure activity during drainage and filling operations, and the most unfavorable combination of simulation of active loads on a tank-wagon was proposed. The proposed procedure can be adapted for use during valuation of freight cars’ residual operation time, or for other means of transport and machineries.

concentration of suspension and free chlorine are the main parameters that make their drainage into the natural environment impossible. Limit values of these parameters are specified in the Regulation of the Minister of the Environment regarding the conditions to be met when introducing sewage into waters or into the ground . Processes of sedimentation or sedimentation supported by coagulation allow to lower the concentration of total suspended solids below the admissible value specified in the Polish

, intraluminal content status and bowel motor function. Gastric drainage, forced bowel evacuation, the presence of ascites and ascitic status without and after paracentesis were additionally monitored. Additionally, cardiac echo was performed and blood flow was assessed in the hepatic artery, renal arteries and the portal system in the initial stage of follow-up. The second stage of POCUS involved an evaluation of intraluminal contents and bowel motor function to decide about bowel evacuation and assess the

; 109/L, and Hb was 116 g/L. Eleven mL of matched platelets compatible by monoclonal antibody immobilization of platelet antigens (MAIPA) assay were transfused in utero, raising the platelet count to 62 × 109/L. Repeat transfusions were done later that week and 1 week later, with pretransfusion counts of 19 × 109/L and 16 × 109/L, respectively. Delivery by C section was done at 35.5 weeks, after the third platelet transfusion. Platelet count at birth was 77 × 109/L. Drainage
