Common pitfalls and mistakes in pediatric ultrasound

AbstractThere are many errors and pitfalls that are commonly encountered during ultrasound examinations. In normal ultrasound, pitfalls may arise from anatomic or physiologic variants of pediatric anatomy, settings, artifacts, patient conditions, operator misunderstanding, or inexperienced performance. In limited field and point-of-care ultrasound, common errors are usually due to limited access, misdiagnosis as a result of wrong timing, unsuitable patient conditions, limited transducer options, satisfaction of search, and unfamiliarity with pediatric sonography. Knowledge of these pitfalls helps improve a physician ’s performance and diagnosis.

The objective of this article is to detail our surgical approach to the anatomic GreenLight laser vaporization-incision technique using the XPS LBO-180W system, based on extensive personal experience with both enucleation and vaporization techniques using various laser technologies. Standardization of the VIT based on proper cystoscopy, knowledge of prostate anatomy with preoperative ultrasound, and routine technique is essential to developing consistent, reproducible and optimal surgical outcomes.

Authors: Ricci V, Özçakar L Abstract Muscle injuries are very common in sports medicine, but involvement of the paraspinal muscles is relatively rare. The diagnosis is usually clinical, but diagnostic imaging modalities (ie, ultrasound and magnetic resonance) identify, in detail, the anatomical site and extension of the lesion helping the physician plan a specific rehabilitation program. Likewise, the authors present an unusual case of a amateur volleyball player who suffered injury of the paraspinal muscles after a session of manual therapy with deep massage. The authors also highlight the potenti...

Postoperative duplex ultrasound (DUS) surveillance after transcarotid artery revascularization (TCAR) focuses on issues commonly associated with carotid artery stenting, primarily in-stent restenosis, but also the common carotid artery (CCA) access site. To address limited specific guidelines, DUS data from patients treated with TCAR in routine clinical practice were collected to illustrate expected values and compared with literature values.

The objective of this work covered assessment of blood flow volume in the internal carotid artery (ICA), external carotid artery (ECA), and vertebral artery (VA) in healthy volunteers and asymptomatic patients with carotid artery disease older than 65  years with the aim of implementation of blood flow volume measurements in clinical assessment of patients with carotid artery disease.

Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) is an evolving diagnostic alternative to contrast-enhanced computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and fluorescence angiography for the evaluation of vascular diseases. Microbubble contrast material allows imaging of blood flow in microvasculature beyond the resolution of standard imaging techniques and demonstrates potential for the evaluation of tissue perfusion. Several authors have investigated the application of CEUS in the evaluation of myocardial or skeletal muscle perfusion and tumor characterization.

In this study, we used D-Stat Flowable (Teleflex, Morrisville, NC) and FloSeal (Baxter Healthcare Corp, Deerfield, Ill) injection. These bicomponent products (collagen and thrombin) are usually used as surgical hemostatic agents. Our aim was to identify whether diameter of the femoral pseudoaneurysms or sheath size was correlated to procedure failure.
