AbstractPurposeRecently, some attempts have been made to integrate lung ultrasound (LUS) teaching into medical curricula. However, current education studies of LUS are extremely heterogeneous due to the lack of evidence-based guidelines on LUS education. In particular, the assessment of competencies is poorly standardized and mostly relies on non-validated scales. A new validated tool, the objective structured assessment of lung ultrasound skills (LUS-OSAUS), has the potential to overcome these limitations. Therefore, we adopted the LUS-OSAUS tool to assess the competencies of a group of LUS-trained undergraduates. Existin...

AbstractAimsRecent studies have established the role of residual congestion evaluated by lung ultrasound in estimating short-term risk of readmission or death in patients admitted for heart failure (HF) decompensation. However, if lung ultrasounds maintain a prognostic role of in long-term survival is still unknown. Aim of our study was to evaluate if residual congestion could predict all-cause mortality during 4 year follow up in a cohort of unselected patients admitted for acute decompensated HF.MethodsOne-hundred fifty patients were enrolled. The anterolateral chest was scanned to evaluate the presence of B-...

ConclusionsBuilding upon the information gained, an optimum inactivation can be reached via raising of power density up to 1200  W and simultaneous lowering of frequency down to 27 kHz. In addition, the combination of the two physical methods UV treatment and ultrasound may yield optimum results without the need of substance removal after the procedure.

AbstractLymph node assessment is an essential component of the treatment of lung cancer. Identification of the correct “N” stage is important for staging which in turn determines treatment. Assessment of lymph nodes may be accomplished using imaging with CT scan and PET–CT, invasive techniques such as mediastinoscopy, endobronchial ultrasound transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) or endoscopic ultrasoun d fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA). Ultimately, regardless of any pre-resection assessment, lymph nodes must be assessed at the time of resection. The question to be addressed in this report is the ...

CONCLUSION: Penetrating trauma in children and adolescents is associated with significant mortality and morbidity. There are similarities with the management of these injuries in adults, but further work is required to ensure that paediatric management algorithms are evidence based.

Abstract Background Chronic Venous Disease (CVD) is the main cause of chronic leg ulcers. Varicose veins are the most frequent cause of venous leg ulcers (VLU). 50.9% of Brazilian women have varicose veins and ulcer prevalence is as high as 4%. Ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy (UGFS) is a low-cost treatment option for varicose veins. Objectives To analyze UGFS outcomes in patients with VLU. Methods Prospective consecutive single center cohort study. Patients with great saphenous vein (GSV) reflux and VLU were treated and followed-up for 180 days. The following were studied: quality of life (QoL), disease severity, heal...
