The Use of a Portable Ultrasound system in the surgical assessment of rib fractures in an elderly patient

ConclusionThis study demonstrates that the portable ultrasound system is a valuable method of imaging in the assessment of rib fractures, and which can save time, economically affordable for many patients, and allow surgeons to make a minor incision in order to avoid complications such as infection, particularly in this group of vulnerable patients.

CONCLUSION: Laparoscopic management of hydatid cysts of the liver can be performed safely and successfully. This technique can be used in patients with unique, small sized, superficially located cysts, and also has the advantages of other abdominal laparoscopic operations.

AbstractRegional anesthesia provides effective anesthesia and pain relief in infants with age-specific data attesting to safety and efficacy. Regional anesthesia decreases exposure to opioids and general anesthetic agents and associated adverse drug effects, suppresses the stress response, and provides better hemodynamic stability compared to general anesthesia. Regional anesthesia can prevent long-term behavioral responses to pain. As a result, the overall number and variety of nerve blocks being used in infants is increasing. While neuraxial blocks are the most common blocks performed in infants, the introduction of ultr...

MansurAbstractCoenzyme Q10 (CQ10) is a lipophilic substance synthesized endogenously by the body that has antioxidant, photoprotective and wound-healing properties. However, when applied exogenously in topical preparations, there are obstacles to its permeation through the stratum corneum due to its high molar mass, low ...

Is your patient having trouble breathing? I can ask respiratory to give him a nebulizer. I’m looking at his chest X-ray now — why don’t we bump up that Lasix, too? I wish the ER would have grabbed an ultrasound of that swollen leg. Does he need more oxygen? If something is missing from this […]Find jobs at  Careers by KevinMD.com.  Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now.  Learn more.

We report a case of a 61 year-old-male who presented a terminal hematuria. Ultrasounds revealed a mass at the dome and the right of urinary bladder. A transurethral resection of the bladder tumor was performed. A pathological examination revealed a pT1 hight grade carciono-sarcoma of the urinary bladder with cartilaginous differentiation. Cystoprostatectomy with Bricker diversion and lymph node dissection were performed. The pathological examination of the surgical specimen revealed no residual tumor lesion.

Purpose To examine the validity of ultrasound (via cloud-based software that measures pixilation intensity according to a scale of 0–100) to noninvasively assess muscle glycogen in human skeletal muscle. Methods In study 1, 14 professional male rugby league players competed in an 80-min competitive rugby league game. In study 2 (in a randomized repeated measures design), 16 recreationally active males completed an exhaustive cycling protocol to deplete muscle glycogen followed by 36 h of HIGH or LOW carbohydrate intake (8 g·kg−1 vs 3 g·kg−1 body mass). In both studies, muscle biopsies a...

Authors: Liu Y, Jiaan Z, Guo H, Li W, Wang X, Chen Z, Liu F, Bilig A Abstract OBJECTIVE: To date, imaging and non-invasive examination methods for evaluating the oral tissue of patients who with oral chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) are still lacking. Herein, we assessed the ultrasonography imaging characteristics of chronic GVHD patients' buccal soft tissue and evaluated the response to treatment using gray-scale and power Doppler (PD) ultrasound. The overall objective of the study was to determine the potential of ultrasonography to provide an early and objective indication of a therapeutic response to tr...
