BACKGROUND/AIM: Established indications for surgery in necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) are pneumoperitoneum and failure to improve or clinical deterioration with medical treatment alone. It has been proposed that infants with intestinal necrosis may benefit from surgery in the absence of one of these indications yet the diagnosis of definitive intestinal necrosis is challenging. Recent data suggest that abdominal ultrasound (US) examination focused on the gastrointestinal tract and the peritoneal cavity may be of utility in this regard...

The aims of this study were to present and discuss ultrasound findings of prenatal fetal cholelithiasis in two cases with different etiology and evolution. Case 1: a pregnant woman from sub-Saharan Africa, suffering from Lyme disease, was treated with ceftriaxone sodium. Six weeks later, biliary sludge associated with polyhydramnios was detected in the fetus and the fetal growth percentile was 14. Emergency caesarean was performed at 36 weeks of gestation due to fetal distress. Biliary sludge persists in the two-and-a-half-year-old child...

Today US plays an important and increasing role in the assessment of many, partially age-specific conditions in the GI tract in neonates, infants and children. Knowledge of the potential capabilities of US and its restrictions together with a skillful performance of GI US examination can provide essential anatomic and functional diagnostic information in many pediatric GI disorders. The aim of this review is to highlight the potential of ultrasound (US) in the evaluation of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract in neonates, infants and children...

OBJECTIVE: Our institution has demonstrated the diagnostic accuracy of surgeon-performed ultrasound (US) in the diagnosis of hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (HPS). Moreover, we have also shown this modality to be accurate and reproducible through surgeon-to-surgeon instruction. The purpose of this study was to determine whether a surgical resident with experience in diagnosing HPS can teach pediatric emergency medicine (PEM) fellows, with little experience in sonography, to accurately measure the pyloric channel with bedside US...

Sonography is a commonly used modality for the investigation of abdominal symptoms in the pediatric population. It is a highly sensitive, readily available imaging modality that does not require ionizing radiation, iodinated contrast material, or anesthesia and can be performed at the bedside if necessary. Abdominal ultrasound is therefore often the first examination performed. This article presents an overview of the ultrasound characteristics of some of the most frequently encountered pathologies as well as some more rarely encountered entities...

BACKGROUND: Non traumatic gastrointestinal emergencies in the children and neonatal patient is a dilemma for the radiologist in the emergencies room and they presenting characteristics ultrasound features on the longitudinal and axial axis. The most frequent emergencies are : appendicitis, intussusceptions, hypertrophic pyloric stenosis, volvulus due to intestinal malrotation. The aim of this article is to familiarize the reader with the US features. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of 200 ultrasound examinations performed in neonatal and children patients with fever, abdominal pain, leukocytosis, vomiting and diarrhea were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: The diagnosis of pyloric stenosis (PS) by physical examination is a lost art that has been replaced by radiology-performed ultrasound (US). The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that the diagnosis of PS can be made solely upon the surgeons US evaluation. METHODS: Surgical ultrasonographers included 2 senior general surgery residents and 2 pediatric surgery residents without prior formal US experience. These surgeons underwent proctored training in the use of US for PS...

A 35-day-old female infant presents to the pediatric emergency department with increased crying and persistent fullness in the right groin. On examination, the infant was noted to have increased fullness and a nonreducible mass in the right mons pubis. Point-of-care ultrasound was used to help diagnose an incarcerated ovary, allowing for expedited care while waiting for confirmatory imaging. The infant underwent surgery with salvage of the ovary.

The use of bedside emergency ultrasound in pediatric abdominal emergencies is becoming more widespread and can be a useful adjunct in the assessment of children who present with abdominal pain. Our case describes an infant who presented to the emergency department with vomiting, in whom an emergency ultrasound evaluation led to timely diagnosis and intervention of an unanticipated condition.
