ultrasound corner chest

Steven Schaub, Hartley M Sirkis, Jonathan Kay
Multifocal osteomyelitis and synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis (SAPHO) syndrome constitute a spectrum of disease that includes inflammatory bone lesions and dermatologic findings. Radiographic features resemble those of the spondyloarthropathies with anterior chest wall involvement. Early radiographic findings are osteodestructive with lytic lesions. Bone scintigraphy of the sternoclavicular region classically yields a 'bull's head' pattern of radionuclide uptake. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can demonstrate corner lesions of vertebral bodies...

Ultrasonography is an essential imaging modality in the ICU used to diagnose and guide the treatment of cardiopulmonary failure. Critical care ultrasonography requires that all image acquisition, image interpretation, and clinical applications of ultrasonography are personally performed by the critical care clinician at the point of care and that the information obtained is combined with the history, physical, and laboratory information. Point-of-care ultrasonography is often compartmentalized such that the clinician will focus on one body system while performing the critical care ultrasonography examination...

Elastofibroma is a benign slow-growing neoplasm of soft tissues, originally defined Elastofibroma dorsi because of the typical localization in the connective tissue placed between the bottom corner of the scapula and the chest wall. From 1990 to 2013 at our center, 115 patients underwent elestofibroma surgical removal, including 2 bilateral and one relapsed. For all the patients ultrasound preoperative examination was requested, sometimes with a diagnosis of lipoma or fibrolipoma because of the rarity of this type of lesion and therefore the lack of experience of the radiologists...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to analyze nerve trunk anatomy in the infraclavicular fossa and to correlate these data with the most common anthropometric parameters. METHODS: A Mylab 30 Gold (Esaote) and the linear transducer LA523 (7.5 MHz frequency) were used. The probe was oriented according to a parasagittal plane, parallel to the lateral chest wall and immediately medial to the coracoid process underneath the clavicle. Measurements included the distance between the artery and the cutaneous surface (mm) and the apical corner of the ultrasound image (mm), the number of identified nervous cords and their position related to the axillary artery, and the position and number of axillary veins...

PURPOSE: We report the case of puerperal ascites, associated with elevated CA125 levels and secondary to a uterine myoma. The literature on pseudo-Meigs' syndrome associated with pregnancy was reviewed. CASE: A 35-year-old woman complained of abdominal distension 2 days after a spontaneous vaginal delivery. A mass of 5 cm in the right uterine corner had been detected during the first trimester ultrasound and had been diagnosed as subserosal myoma. Physical examination and ultrasound revealed massive ascites...

In totally endoscopic coronary artery bypass surgery, intra-operative assessment of anastomotic quality is needed. We evaluated the endoscopic application of epicardial ultrasound to visualize the coronary anastomosis and detect a construction error. In 8 pigs (71-78kg), 16 internal mammary artery to left anterior descending coronary artery anastomoses were constructed conventionally, either correctly (n=8) or incorrectly with a suture cross-over construction error (n=8). A 13MHz mini-transducer (15x9x6mm) was introduced through a port and manipulated by the 'da Vinci' system...

OBJECTIVE: Intraoperative detection of suboptimal coronary anastomoses allows revision before chest closure. We evaluated an epicardial 13-MHz ultrasound minitransducer as a means to detect three different coronary anastomosis construction errors. METHODS: In total, 120 internal thoracic artery-to-coronary artery anastomoses were constructed correctly (n = 60) or incorrectly (n = 60) with one technical error: suture crossover, purse-string or deep toe stitch (n = 20 each)...
