A pulmonary artery (PA) sling is a very rare congenital cardiovascular anomaly, and only a few studies have reported PA slings in fetuses. The relationship of the PA, aorta, ductus arteriosus, and trachea can be evaluated in the 3-vessel and 3-vessel and trachea views during fetal echocardiography. A PA sling can be detected by abnormal positioning of the left PA in relation to the trachea when sweeping from the 3-vessel view cranially to the 3-vessel and trachea view. Here we report 3 cases of fetal PA slings and their follow-ups...

The use of Mohs micrographic surgery for poorly defined cutaneous tumors is present in a few departments in Spain. Reintervention is occasionally necessary when the margins of the surgical specimen are invaded by the tumor. We propose the use of ultrasound to assess these margins by imaging the surgical specimen once excised.

OBJECTIVES: An increasing number of medical schools are incorporating point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) into preclinical and clinical curricula. The ultimate effect of this teaching is unclear, and there has been no distinct link between ultrasound (US) learning and existing standardized student assessments. Additionally, neither optimal timing nor methods of POCUS integration have been established. We aimed to demonstrate the effect of US teaching on standardized objective assessments that already exist within the curriculum and, in doing so, discern a route for POCUS curricular integration...

Portal venous gas is occasionally encountered in children with intestinal pneumatosis, identified on real-time ultrasound imaging as hyperechoic foci with quick movement. The origin of the portal venous gas can be identified by following the hyperechoic foci along the branches of the portal vein, providing an estimate of the location of intestinal pneumatosis. This approach may be useful for predicting the patient's prognosis. Our report describes 2 cases of portal venous gas while estimating the area of intestinal pneumatosis, which were evaluated with real-time ultrasound...

The current reference standard to check the position of a tubal sterilization microinsert device after its insertion is hysterosalpingography. The objective of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of 2-dimensional (2D) and 3-dimensional (3D) ultrasonography (US) in the positioning of the tubal sterilization microinsert for definitive contraception. We searched MEDLINE, Embase, Cochrane, and Scopus databases through October 2017. Selection criteria included studies that analyzed the accuracy of 2D or 3D US, or both, with respect to the positioning of the microinsert...
