In the neonatal and pediatric intensive care setting, bedside cardiac ultrasound is often used to assess ventricular dimensions and function. Depending upon the underlying disease process, it is necessary to be able to evaluate the systolic and diastolic function of left and or right ventricles. The systolic function of left ventricle is mostly assessed qualitatively on visual inspection "eye-balling" and quantitatively by measuring circumferential fraction shortening or calculating the ejection fraction by Simpson's planimetry...

OBJECTIVE: The need for liver biopsy has been increasing because genetic testing of specimens has become important for determining prognosis and management in patients with hepatic malignancy. We evaluated the feasibility of a device for biopsy tract ablation in patients with hepatic masses. METHODS: This prospective single-center pilot study was approved by our institutional review board and patients provided written informed consent. Between September 2015 and March 2016, 10 patients (6 males and 4 females, 35-66-years-old) who had hepatic masses and normal range of platelet count and prothrombin time were enrolled...

A spectrum of vascular complications can be seen in pediatric liver transplant patients, including occlusion and hemodynamically significant narrowing of the vessels that provide inflow to or outflow from the graft. Intraoperative Doppler ultrasound (US) has the potential benefit of identifying vascular complications in pediatric liver transplant patients prior to abdominal closure. Importantly, intraoperative Doppler US can be used as a problem-solving tool in situations such as position-dependent kinking of the portal or hepatic veins, or in suspected vasospasm of the hepatic artery...

BACKGROUND Adequate portal venous flow is required for successful liver transplantation. Reduced venous flow and blood flow 'steal' by collateral vessels are a concern, and when there is a prominent splenorenal shunt present, ligation of the left renal vein has been recommended to improve portal venous blood flow. CASE REPORT A 51-year-old man who had undergone right nephrectomy in childhood required liver transplantation for liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma due to hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection...

Uterine angioleiomyoma is rare. A 40-year-old nulliparous woman presented with heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB) for the past 2 years and mass per abdomen with severe dysmenorrhea for three cycles. She had received 8 units of packed cell transfusion outside. Clinical examination revealed a huge 32-week-sized abdominopelvic mass with irregular margins. Ultrasonography (USG) of the abdomen and pelvis showed a large solid cystic mass on the right side of the abdomen with a well-defined hypoechoeic rounded lesion of size 5...

Arterial dissection is a rare complication after liver transplantation (LT). We report a case of extensive isolated spontaneous celiac trunk dissection (ISCTD) up to the proper hepatic artery, left gastric artery, and splenic artery after living donor liver transplantation. A 48-year-old woman with cryptogenic liver cirrhosis underwent living donor liver transplantation. Intraoperative and postoperative Doppler ultrasound revealed sufficient flow in the hepatic artery, portal vein, and hepatic vein. On postoperative day (POD) 10, Doppler ultrasound showed reduction of hepatic arterial flow...

Several thousand life-saving liver transplants are performed each year. One of the most common causes of early transplant failure is arterial stenosis of the anastomotic junction. Early detection of transplant arterial stenosis can help prevent transplant failure and the need to re-transplant. Doppler ultrasound is the most common screening method, but it suffers from poor specificity. Positive screening cases proceed to angiography which is an invasive and expensive procedure. A more accurate test could decrease the number of normal patients who would have to undergo this invasive diagnostic procedure...

PURPOSE: It has been demonstrated that Doppler waveform of the hepatic vein (normally triphasic) is transformed into a biphasic or monophasic waveform in cirrhotic patients. The compressive mechanism of liver tissue has been considered up till now the cause of this change. Moreover, cirrhotics show, after USCA injection, a much earlier HVTT due to intrahepatic shunts. Our aim was to prospectively evaluate the correlation between Doppler pattern of hepatic vein and HVTT of a second-generation USCA; we also correlated HVTT with the most common indexes of portal hypertension...

BACKGROUND: Pre-eclampsia and placental causes of intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) are part of the same spectrum of disorders. In IUGR, there is preferential shunting of blood to the fetal brain at the expense of other organs. We wanted to demonstrate that this also occurs in pre-eclampsia using three dimensional (3D) ultrasound. The 3D indices of perfusion are: flow index (FI), vascular index (VI) and vascularisation flow index (VFI) which reflect tissue vascularity and flow intensity...

OBJECTIVES: The authors sought to identify strictures or hepatic artery obstruction with posterior collateral transformation in our series of liver transplantation, treatment, and evolution. The thrombosis or severe hepatic artery stenosis sometimes presents a compensation mechanism, the collateral transformation of the artery. MATERIAL AND METHODS: From April 2002 to December 2011 we collected 18 cases of collateral transformation. We analyzed data regarding the transplantation, diagnosis, treatment, clinical evolution, liver function, and Doppler-ultrasound...

INTRODUCTION: Due to the complexity of the surgical procedure portal vein thrombosis (PVT) has long been considered an absolute contraindication to liver transplantation (LT). The presence of a large splenorenal shunt (SRS) could make portal anastomosis a valid option. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We report the case of a 37-year-old female patient with Grade III PVT and a large SRS, who underwent orthotopic LT. Liver was implanted using a 1992-Belghiti piggyback technique and portal anastomosis was performed using the large spleno-renal shunt...

BACKGROUND: Doppler ultrasound (DUS) arterial abnormalities (DAA) after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) often represent a sign of hepatic artery (HA) complication (HAC). The standard management of DAA involves computed tomographic angiography (CTA) followed by invasive vascular intervention (IVI) or observation. We evaluated the contribution of systemic vasodilators (SVD) to the management of DAA after OLT. METHODS: Between 2005 and 2015, 91 of 514 OLT recipients developed DAA (defined by HA resistive index [HARI] <0...

Omar Abdelaziz, Hussein Attia
Living-donor liver transplantation has provided a solution to the severe lack of cadaver grafts for the replacement of liver afflicted with end-stage cirrhosis, fulminant disease, or inborn errors of metabolism. Vascular complications remain the most serious complications and a common cause for graft failure after hepatic transplantation. Doppler ultrasound remains the primary radiological imaging modality for the diagnosis of such complications. This article presents a brief review of intra- and post-operative living donor liver transplantation anatomy and a synopsis of the role of ultrasonography and color Doppler in evaluating the graft vascular haemodynamics both during surgery and post-operatively in accurately defining the early vascular complications...

BACKGROUND: Currently most studies on anaesthetic effects on hepatic blood flow of cirrhotic patients have been performed on adults or experimental animals. We performed this study to evaluate the effect of sevoflurane anaesthesia on hepatic blood flow in infants with obstructive jaundice by Doppler ultrasound. METHODS: Forty-four infants with biliary atresia (1-3 months of age) scheduled for a Kasai procedure were enrolled. Hepatic blood flow was calculated by Doppler ultrasound measurements before induction, and after inhalation of 2% and 3% sevoflurane...
