The aim of the study was to investigate the curative effect of botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A) injection into stellate ganglion under ultrasound guidance in patients suffering from insomnia. From October 2015 to April 2016, 48 patients suffering from insomnia were enrolled in this study. Patients were divided into 2 groups using a random digital grouping method: i) Control group (24 cases), and ii) treatment group (24 cases). Patients in the control group received 1 mg oral estazolam 30 min before sleep every night, while patients in the treatment group received BTX-A injection in bilateral stellate ganglions under ultrasound guidance...

Accurate identification of the needle target is crucial for effective epidural anesthesia. Currently, epidural needle placement is administered by a manual technique, relying on the sense of feel, which has a significant failure rate. Moreover, misleading the needle may lead to inadequate anesthesia, post dural puncture headaches and other potential complications. Ultrasound offers guidance to the physician for identification of the needle target, but accurate interpretation and localization remain challenges...

We investigate a new framework of surgical instrument detection based on power-varying ultrasound images with simple and efficient pixel-wise intensity processing. Without using complicated feature extraction methods, we identified the instrument with an estimated optimal power level and by comparing pixel values of varying transducer power level images. The proposed framework exploits the physics of ultrasound imaging system by varying the transducer power level to effectively distinguish metallic surgical instruments from tissue...

PURPOSE: The incidence of infectious complications after transrectal ultrasound-guided prostate needle biopsy is rising. We sought to identify the incidence and predictors of infection in a large cohort of men undergoing biopsy who receive targeted prophylaxis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review was performed on 5,214 consecutive patients who underwent transrectal ultrasound-guided prostate needle biopsy within Uropartners, a large urology group comprised of 28 clinics within Metropolitan Chicago from January 2013 to December 2014...

BACKGROUND: Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been applied as an adjunct to rotator cuff repair to improve tendon-bone healing and potentially reduce the incidence of subsequent tendon retears. PURPOSE: To investigate whether the midterm clinical and radiographic outcomes of arthroscopic supraspinatus repair are enhanced after repeated postoperative applications of PRP. STUDY DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial; Level of evidence, 1. METHODS: A total of 60 patients (30 control; 30 PRP) were initially randomized to receive 2 ultrasound-guided injections of PRP to the tendon repair site at 7 and 14 days after double-row arthroscopic supraspinatus repair or not...

The medical treatment of Parkinson's disease (PD) is symptomatic both in terms of motor and nonmotor aspects. The nonmotor symptoms therapy should be taken into account as many of them negatively influence the quality of life and are treatable. Botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT) offers effective treatment for drooling and bladder dysfunctions and alternative treatment for constipation and pain related to parkinsonism. BoNT for drooling is probably the best-documented therapy for nonmotor symptoms by clinical trials...

OBJECTIVE: To determine if multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) identifies significant apical disease, thereby informing decisions regarding preservation of the membranous urethra. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Men undergoing radical prostatectomy between January 2012 and June 2016 who underwent a 12-core transrectal-ultrasound guided systematic biopsy, preoperative 3-T MRI, and sectioning of the prostate specimen with tumor foci mapping were extracted from a single surgeon's prospective longitudinal outcomes database...

BACKGROUND: Results of endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary drainage (EUBD) are unknown in case of proximal stricture. The aim is to assess clinical outcomes of EUBD in patients with malignant hilar obstruction. METHODS: Patients undergoing EUBD with hilar strictures were prospectively included. Primary outcome was clinical success at 7 and 30 days (defined by 50% bilirubin decrease). Secondary outcomes were technical success, procedure-related complications, length of hospital stay, reintervention rate, survival and chemotherapy administration...

Objective To evaluate the effects of ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block on postoperative analgesia and early recovery in patients undergoing retroperitoneoscopic urologic surgeries. Methods This was a randomized, controlled, double-blinded trial. Eligible patients scheduled for retroperitoneoscopic urologic surgeries were randomly assigned to two groups. Group TAP received ultrasound-guided TAP block with 0.5% ropivacaine 20 ml at 30 minutes before surgery, and Group C received TAP sham block with normal saline...

PROBLEM: Emergency medical care often necessitates placement of peripheral intravenous (PIV) catheters. When traditional methods for obtaining PIV access are not successful, ultrasound guidance is a rescue technique for peripheral vascular placement that improves the quality of patient care. METHODS: The aim of this training program was to develop a process where emergency nurses would be competent to perform ultrasound guided PIV to improve the quality of patient care delivered while reducing throughput time...

INTRODUCTION: Head tremor is a common feature in cervical dystonia (CD) and often less responsive to botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT) treatment than dystonic posturing. Ultrasound allows accurate targeting of deeper neck muscles. METHODS: In 35 CD patients with dystonic head tremor the depth and thickness of the splenius capitis (SPL), semispinalis capitis and obliquus capitis inferior muscles (OCI) were assessed using ultrasound. Ultrasound guided EMG recordings were performed from the SPL and OCI...

OBJECTIVE: An increasing number of breast-conserving surgeries (BCS) has lead clinicians to the dilemma how to provide patients with the best pathological, short-term and long-term outcomes, while at the same time improving the cosmetic outcome and the patients' quality of life. A proposed solution is the use of intraoperative ultrasound (IOUS) for lesion resection in palpable as well as non-palpable breast cancer. METHODS: This review identifies and compares evidence on palpation-guided/wire-guided vs...

Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is an aggressive skin tumor with a high tendency for metastases. We report a case of MCC initially presenting as axillary and pancreatic metastases. A 33-year-old HIV-positive Hispanic male presented with a history of a rapidly growing axillary mass. A needle core biopsy demonstrated an epithelioid neoplasm composed of small to medium-sized cells with high nuclear-cytoplasmic ratio, nuclear molding, and frequent mitotic figures. A subsequent PET scan revealed a 1.5 cm FDG avid mass in the pancreas...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Locoregional lymph node ultrasound is not typically included in guidelines as part of the staging process prior to sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB). The objective of the present study was to make a clinical and economic analysis of lymph node ultrasound prior to SLNB. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective study of 384 patients with clinical stage I-II primary melanoma who underwent locorregional lymph node ultrasound (with or without ultrasound-guided biopsy) prior to SLNB between 2004 and 2015...

Objective: To comparison of the safety of two treatment methods of cesarean scar pregnancy (CSP) of typeⅡ and Ⅲ in menopause within 7 weeks. Methods: Totally 70 cases of CSP of typeⅡ and Ⅲ within 7 weeks of the last menstrual period, hospitalized within Peking University First Hospital from January 2009 to May 2016, had been retrospectively studied in two groups of different treatments. The methotrexate (MTX) treatment group included 37 cases receiving ultrasound-guided complete curettage of uterine cavity combined with MTX therapy, while the uterine artery embolization (UAE) group had 33 cases treated with UAE combined with MTX therapy and subsequent ultrasound-guided complete curettage of uterine cavity...
