CECT scan is considered essential for selective non-operative management (SNOM) of patients with abdominal trauma. However, CECT has its own hazards and limitations. We evaluated the safety and efficacy of selective non-operative management of patients with abdominal trauma without the mandatory use of CECT scan in a prospective study. Patients with peritonitis and ongoing intra-abdominal bleed were excluded. Consenting FAST positive, hemodynamically stable patients with blunt and penetrating abdominal trauma between 18 and 60 years of age were included and admitted for SNOM and detailed ultrasonography of the abdomen (in all) with or without CECT abdomen (selectively)...

BACKGROUND: One of the most frequently performed emergency surgical procedures in children is an appendectomy. The aim of this study was to determine the benefits of supplementing standard, general anaesthesia with the ultrasound-guided right TAP block. METHODS: We analyzed the medical records of 90 children of both sexes, aged 4-16 years with a body mass of 16-78 kg who underwent general anaesthesia for open appendectomy. Sixty-two individuals were anaesthetized using the standard method, while 28 patients had an additional right-sided TAP block under ultrasound guidance...

OBJECTIVES: Previous studies have shown that ultrasonography (USG), as an alternative to radiography, has a good accuracy in confirming nasogastric tube (NGT) position. Color flow detection of air insufflation is a novel approach in verifying NGT position. In our study, we aimed at evaluating its sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV), negative predictive value (NPV), and accuracy in confirming the NGT position, as compared with 2-dimensional (2D) USG. METHODS: The study was conducted on adult patients over a period of 38months in an emergency department in Hong Kong...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the managemant results of patients with penetrating abdominal injuries. MATERIAL AND METHODS: One hundred twenty (120) patients who were admitted to the Emergency Department of Haydarpasa Numune Training and Research Hospital between December 2003 and December 2010 with abdominal stab wounds were included to retrospective study. The data of all patients regarding age, gender, FAST and CT results, injured organs, surgical procedures, length of hospital stay, follow-up were examined...

Acute fluid consumption (approximately 1 L) has been shown to reduce urine specific gravity (Usg) among subjects after an overnight fast, yet it is unknown if Usg may be reduced among subjects who have experienced exercise-induced fluid loss. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of acute fluid consumption on Usg, body mass, percent body fat (%BF), and minimum wrestling weight (MWW) following an exercise-induced fluid loss protocol. National Collegiate Athletic Association coaches' perceptions of the weight certification program (WCP) were also evaluated...

BACKGROUND: The concept of Focused Assessment with Ultrasound for Trauma (FAST), which was introduced by Rozycki et al. in 1996, has started a new era in the management of trauma patients. Today, Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) suggests bedside ultrasonography (USG) evaluation of trauma patients. We aimed to investigate the usability and the reliability of handheld ultrasound (Vscan) in determining free fluid during the initial evaluation of trauma patients. METHODS: This was a multi-center, prospective study involving multiple trauma patients who presented to three hospital emergency departments (EDs)...

INTRODUCTION: The present concept in our healthcare system is that medical care should be given on an outpatient basis with hospitalization occurring only when essential. We therefore put forth the development of the "all in one" outpatient office or "high resolution" outpatient clinic. For such purpose we administered a questionnaire to various Andalusian hospitals to define and determine those aspects necessary in the development of the aforementioned outpatient office. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The questionnaire was filled out by 10 Andalusian hospitals...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: We compared the results of treatment of gallbladder stones by extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy with dissolution during two periods to different criteria of indication. In the first period (1990-1991) we treated patients with stones up to 3 cm in diameter. In the second period (1992-1994) the indication included stones up to 1.5 cm with gallbladder contraction on cholecystography, which was also quantitatively determined by USG exceeding 60% of fasting volume. METHODS: We used Czech made lithotriptors MEDILIT...
