OBJECTIVES: The primary purpose of this investigation was to describe and validate sonographically guided techniques for distal biceps peritendinous/intratendinous injections using a cadaveric model. METHODS: A single experienced operator completed 18 sonographically guided distal biceps peritendinous injections and 15 sonographically guided distal biceps intratendinous injections in 18 unembalmed cadaveric elbow specimens (11 male and 7 female; age, 53-100 years; body mass index, 19...

In this case series, out of 823 ultrasound-guided injections carried out over a period of one and a half years, 60% were of the lower limb (LL). In the hip (61% of LL injections), the main indications were pathologies of the gluteal tendons and bursae (80%) and pathologies of periprosthetic soft tissue; in the knee (15% of LL punctures), these procedures were for cysts (51%), tendinopathies and bursopathies (18%), and joint aspirations (7%); in the calf, haematoma drainage; in the foot and the ankle (24% of LL punctures), Morton's neuroma (47%), tenosynovitis (22%), pathologies of the plantar fascia (13%), cysts (7%), joint aspirations (5%), and bursopathies...

We present a critical analysis of the monograph of A.S.D. Synnestvedt (1869) “En anatomisk beskrivelse af de paa over- og underestremiteterne forekommende Bursae mucosae”. The analysis was completed using anatomical information from the historically oldest publications dealing with the bursae of the extremities: Albinus (1734) , Monro (1788) , Rosenmüller (1799) . We are of the opinion that Synnestvedt's publication is important, not only historically but also as a source of information for recent medical practitioners...

AIM: The goal of this study was to check the usefulness of ultrasonography as a diagnostic tool for a bursitis in the area of the Achilles tendon. Furthermore, we assessed the shape and size of the retrocalcaneal bursa of normal subjects. METHOD: The ultrasonograms of 28 patients with a bursitis at the Achilles tendon were analysed. In addition, we sonographically examined the region of interest in 10 normal subjects (20 Achilles tendons). We used a 5 and/or a 7...

Synovial cysts are far less common at the hip than at the knee and usually occur in patients whose hip cavity communicates with the iliopsoas bursa. We report 12 cases of enlargement of the iliopsoas bursa, nine men and three women, with a mean age of 48 years. The six patients with septic bursitis had severe symptoms similar to those seen in septic arthritis of the hip. Chronic pain with or without a palpable inguinal swelling was the main symptom in the six remaining patients, some of whom had compression of neighboring structures making the diagnosis more difficult...

Hypertrophic bursopathy is a term used to describe the massive synovial proliferation occasionally seen in the bursae of patients with arthritis. Involvement of the subacromial-subdeltoid (SA-SD) bursa in adults in uncommon, and it is still rarer in children. It may simulate synovial proliferation or fluid within the adjacent shoulder joint. Sonography clearly shows the location and nature of the soft-tissue swelling. Two cases of this entity in children with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis are described, one with a uniquely severe sonographic picture...
