EFSUMB Gastrointestinal Ultrasound (GIUS) Task Force Group: Celiac sprue and other rare gastrointestinal diseases ultrasound features. Med Ultrason. 2019 Aug 31;21(3):299-315 Authors: Dietrich CF, Hollerweger A, Dirks K, Higginson A, Serra C, Calabrese E, Dong Y, Hausken T, Maconi G, Mihmanli I, Nürnberg D, Nylund K, Pallotta N, Ripollés T, Romanini L, Săftoiu A, Sporea I, Wüstner M, Maaser C, Gilja OH Abstract Transabdominal gastrointestinal ultrasound (GIUS) is unique in its capacity to examine the bowel non-invasively and in its physiological condition, including extra-intestinal features such as the splanchnic vessels, mesentery, omentum and lymph nodes- even at the bedside. Despite this, and its extensive documentation for its usefulness, it has only been fully implemented in a few European countries and expert centres. Therefore, the European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (EFSUMB) established a GIUS Task Force Group in 2014 consisting of international experts from 9 European countries with the objectives to standardize and promote the use of GIUS in a clinical setting. This is achieved by publishing clinical guidelines and recommendations on indications and use of GIUS and so far,4 guidelines have been published: first on "examination techniques and normal findings", second on "inflammatory bowel disease", third on "acute appendicitis and diverticulitis" and fourth on &...

Increasing cooling rate can strongly refine the microstructures and improve the mechanical properties of the prepared alloy. The average grain diameter and secondary dendrite arm space (SDAS) of the quenched alloy are approximately 198 μm and 4.84 μm, and the values are reduce...

Baranda-Tovar FM Abstract The use of echocardiography is very useful in the evaluation, treatment, and follow-up of the patient in critical condition. Along with clinic and the stethoscope, it is a tool that complements the act of the physician faced with the diversity of etiologies that determine the state of shock and increase morbidity and mortality, especially in post-cardiac surgery patients, in whom there are no management emergency post-surgical algorithms. In view of this situation, at the National Institute of Cardiology Ignacio Chávez, a management algorithm has been made and improved in cardiac ...
