BACKGROUND: A continuous adductor canal block provides analgesia after surgical procedures of the knee. Recent neuroanatomic descriptions of the thigh and knee led us to speculate that local anesthetic deposited in the distal thigh close to the adductor hiatus would provide superior analgesia compared to a more proximal catheter location. We therefore tested the hypothesis that during a continuous adductor canal nerve block, postoperative analgesia would be improved by placing the perineural catheter tip 2-3 cm cephalad to where the femoral artery descends posteriorly to the adductor hiatus (distal location) compared to a more proximal location at the midpoint between the anterior superior iliac spine and the superior border of the patella (proximal location)...

The left ventricular diastolic time constant (Tau) cannot be practically measured non-invasively. Thus, the aim of this study was to investigate a new method for the evaluation of Tau using continuous-wave (CW) Doppler in dogs with mitral regurgitation. Guided by ultrasound, we created 12 beagle models of mitral regurgitation and acute ischemic left ventricular diastolic dysfunction. Raw audio signals of the CW Doppler spectra were collected, and new mitral regurgitation Doppler spectra were observed after computer re-processing...

BACKGROUND: The successful recanalization rate of chronic total occlusion (CTO) lesions without retrograde collaterals available is always low. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) may be useful to guide the subintimal guidewire to re-enter the true lumen. We evaluated the clinical feasibility and efficacy of the IVUS-guided wiring re-entry technique for these complex CTO lesions. METHODS: Twenty consecutive patients (19 male, mean age: 65.3 ± 12.8 years) with both failed antegrade and retrograde approaches were enrolled...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic ultrasound-guided hepaticojejunostomy (EUS-HJS) combined with antegrade stenting (AS) can proceed if patients are complicated with duodenal obstruction or surgical anatomy such as Roux-en-Y esophagojejunostomy. A novel plastic stent (Gadelius Medical Co. Ltd., Tokyo, Japan) that is designed to prevent stent migration into the abdominal cavity was made available in Japan. Here, we describe technical tips for EUS-HJS combined with EUS-AS using this plastic stent. TECHNICAL PRESENTATION: After the intrahepatic bile duct is punctured, the guidewire is inserted into the intestine across the bile duct obstruction site...

BACKGROUND: An intra-abdominal abscess can sometimes become serious and difficult to treat. The current standard treatment strategy for intra-abdominal abscess is percutaneous imaging-guided drainage. However, in cases of subphrenic abscess, it is important to avoid passing the drainage route through the thoracic cavity, as this can lead to respiratory complications. The spread of intervention techniques involving endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) has made it possible to perform drainage via the transmural route...

BACKGROUND A peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) causes few serious complications but can be malpositioned. To avoid malpositioning, ultrasound guidance is widely used. Here, we report the case of a patient who received a PICC that was inserted under ultrasound guidance, but the catheter tip accidentally entered the right inferior thyroid vein. CASE REPORT A 58-year-old woman was scheduled for reconstructive mammoplasty. After general anesthesia, a PICC was inserted via the right basilic vein. The PICC was inserted under guidance using a portable ultrasound machine with a high-frequency linear transducer...

V Zimmer
There is an increasing rivalry between percutaneous transhepatic (PTBD) vs. endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD) as rescue techniques after failed endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC) access. While EUS-BD procedures hold a bright future, innovations in PTBD technique are still possible and clinically meaningful, at least so, under the a conceptual framework understanding PTBD as a bridging, anatomy-respecting technology for definitive biliary metal stenting. This, however, calls for successful PTBD internalization as a sine qua non...

BACKGROUND: Endobronchial ultrasonography has proven to be highly sensitive and specific in the diagnoses of patients with mediastinal and hilar adenopathy. Many of these patients are on a combination of clopidogrel (a compound that inhibits adenosine diphosphate-induced platelet aggregation) and aspirin due to neurological and/or cardiac-related comorbidities, and stopping anticoagulation may place these patients at high risk for potential complications. Our group has previously showed that thoracentesis with an 8-french catheter is safe in patients receiving clopidogrel and aspirin with low risk of complications...

BACKGROUND: Patients' intra and post procedural comfort, quick recovery, as well as procedure success, are key elements for choosing the right arterial access site. Radial artery access has been of increasing interest since it was first described. Advanced treatments of coronary lesions, from primary percutaneous interventions during ST elevation myocardial infarction cases to chronic total occlusion cases, have been increasingly done through the radial access. Distal left trans radial artery (dlTRA) is a new technique first described by Kiemineij...
