Bedside ultrasound diagnosis of urethral calculus in emergency department

Publication date: Available online 11 August 2016 Source:Journal of Acute Disease Author(s): Umut Cakir, Ozlem Yigit, Mustafa Kesapli, Volkan Celebi A 22-year-old boy presented to the emergency department with penile pain and acute urinary retention. The patient had a tender and painful mass along the distal volar surface of the penis, 5 cm away from the external urethral meatus. Bedside ultrasound was performed in the emergency department. Revealing penile urethral calculus in the emergency department with bedside sonography allowed a prompt diagnosis for the patient without additional invasion or radiation exposing diagnostic modalities such as X-ray, CT or retrograde urethrography.

Authors: Altiparmak B, Toker MK, Uysal Aİ, Kuşçu Y, Demirbilek SG Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The primary aim of this study is to assess the effect of ultrasoung-guided erector spinae block on postoperative opioid consumption after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The secondary aims are to assess the effects of erector spinae plane block on intraoperative fentanyl need and postoperative pain scores. METHODS: Patients between 18-70 years old, ASA I-II were included in the study and randomly allocated into two groups. In Group ESP, patients received bilateral US-ESP with 40ml of 0.25% bupivacaine at...

Written by Pendell MeyersA man in his late 40s with several ACS risk factors presented with a chief complaint of chest pain.  Several hours prior to presentation, while driving his truck, he started experiencing new central chest pain, without radiation, aggravating/alleviating factors, or other associated symptoms. On review of systems the patient reported back pain for approximately 1 week which he was treating with NSAIDs with minimal relief. On exam the patient was well appearing, with normal vitals signs other than BP 155/82, no murmurs or rubs, normal pulses, no reproducible chest pain.Here is his triage ECG:Wha...

Conclusion: Both blocks result in equally prolonged analgesia and preclude requirement of opioid analgesics intra and post-operatively. PECS block is associated with lesser time to allow incision. Complications are low in both the groups. Routine use of these blocks to avoid opioids may be studied further. Clinical trial number – Registered in Clinical Trials Registry of India (CTRI/2017/02/007897).

AbstractThoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is a rare neurovascular disorder generally caused by the presence of a cervical rib or hypertrophic scalene anterior muscle that can compress the brachial plexus and/or subclavian vessels. In the vascular form, the symptoms are caused by the compression of the artery and/or the subclavian vein. In the first case, the compression is caused by the cervical rib and leads to hypo-perfusion with cooling and cyanosis of the upper limb, while in the second case, the compression is caused by the anterior scalene muscle and leads to congestion, cyanosis, swelling and pain in the higher limb. I...

Ovarian Sertoli-Leydig cell tumour with α-fetoprotein-producing intestinal glandular cells. Clinical case and short review of basic literature. Pol J Pathol. 2019;70(3):226-231 Authors: Strus M, Rajtar-Ciosek A, Jach R, Hankus J, Szczepański W Abstract Sertoli Leydig cell tumor of the ovary, is a rare neoplasm from the group of sex cord-stromal tumors of the ovary, accounting for less than 1% of all ovarian tumors. Among the Sertoli Leydig cell tumors, we distinguish a separate group of tumors secreting α-fetoprotein (AFP). The young 24-year-old woman presented to the Clinical Department o...

Authors: Liu J, Yu J, Zhou Y, Jia G, Yin Y, Wu Z, Tan B, Yu L Abstract BACKGROUND: High incidence of sports injury occurring during marathon competitions urges a pressing demand for a convenient and accurate diagnostic tool of such injuries. However, contemporary information on the application of Musculoskeletal Ultrasonography (MSUS) in sports injury is not sufficient. METHODS: A repeated measures study was used to describe the distribution of lower limb injuries in the Chongqing marathon and the application of MSUS in assessing these sports injuries. To verify the diagnostic accuracy of MSUS for sports injury...

ObjectiveIntrathecal drug delivery systems (IDDS) are refilled using templates and palpation. The 2017 Polyanalgesic Consensus Conference recommends ultrasound only when reservoir ports are difficult to identify. The purpose of this study was to compare procedural outcomes and patient's preference for refill method of IDDS.Materials and MethodsThe study was approved by the Rush University IRB. Participants were randomized to have their IDDS with ultrasound or template using a 2:1 allocation. The time to reservoir port access, number of needle maneuvers/punctures, pain (NRS 0 –10), complications, patient satisfaction,...
