In the subacute and chronic stages, ultrasound can be of value to follow up injured muscle during the healing process and identify complications that may require special treatment(4–8). In addition to morphological features, ultrasound imaging combined with strain and shear wave elastography can also provide information on the mechanical properties of intact and diseased muscle tissue, thus allowing assessment of muscle biomechanics in the clinical setting(9–16).

Hematologic complications in a patient with Glycine soja polyagglutination following fresh frozen plasma transfusion

Polyagglutination is a rare and underdiagnosed condition, characterized by agglutination of red blood cells (RBCs) with almost all ABO-compatible adult sera. Polyagglutination can occur when a cryptantigen is exposed on RBCs via microbial enzyme activity. Because nearly all adults naturally produce antibodies against cryptantigens, transfusion of plasma can cause unexpected hemolysis and hematologic complications, such as thrombocytopenia and disseminated intravascular coagulation, in patients

Neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia due to anti-HPA-5b (Bra)

Neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT) results from maternal immunization against fetal platelet antigens and can occur during the first pregnancy. The most common complications of NAIT are neonatal thrombocytopenia, intracerebral hemorrhage, and fetal death. Most cases of NAIT in Causasians are caused by anti-HPA-1a (PlA1). Anti-HPA-5b (Bra) accounts for only 4.3 percent of all NAIT cases. NAIT due to anti-HPA-5b is thought to be milder and have fewer complications than NAIT caused by

Bacterial meningitis is a major diagnostic and therapeutic problem among children and neonates, with severe, rapidly progressing course and potentially life-threatening complications. Early antibacterial treatment is essential for the patient’s favorable prognosis. Cerebral imaging plays an important role in the diagnostic process alongside physical examination and laboratory tests. Magnetic resonance imaging is the gold standard for diagnosing bacterial meningitis. Because of limited

Can ultrasound be helpful in selecting optimal management methods for pregnancies complicated by placental non-trophpblastic tumors?

Placental chorioangioma is the most common subtype of non-trophoblastic placental tumors. Other subtypes are very rare and usually associated with an uneventful course of pregnancy. Most chorioangiomas are small and of no clinical significance. Giant chorioangiomas may be associated with serious fetal and maternal complications. So far, no established ultrasound guidelines are available for the management of placental non-trophoblastic tumors. This may be attributed to the rarity of the disease

Transient venous air embolism after ERCP: worrisome or not?

embolism is a rare complication of ERCP, with only few cases reported so far, usually with good outcomes. It can be associated with the more frequently encountered post-ERCP complications pancreatitis(1) or cholangitis(2). However, it can also be noted with perforation, when surgical exploration is usually necessary(3). Its sometimes-transient nature(4,5) strengthens the rationale for early transabdominal ultrasound, since its presence could be able to herald major post-procedural complications.

glycoproteins, which are members of the immunoglobulin superfamily of adhesion molecules and receptors, bind isoforms of laminin with α5 chains, components of the extracellular matrix abundant in vascular endothelia. The primary function of the Lutheran glycoproteins on RBCs could involve the transfer of maturing RBCs from the bone marrow to the peripheral circulation. They could also be involved in vascular occlusion and thrombotic events as complications of sickle cell disease and polycythemia vera

Update on HDFN: new information on long-standing controversies

Hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn (HDFN) results from maternal IgG antibodies that cross the placenta to the fetal circulation during gestation and cause RBC destruction and complications before birth (HDF), or anemia and hyperbilirubinemia after birth (HDN), or both. In its most severe form,HDF produces hydrops fetalis,which is characterized by total body edema,hepatosplenomegaly,and heart failure and can lead to intrauterine death. Before discovery of Rh immunoglobulin (RhIG), HDFN

Current knowledge on the use of ultrasound measurements of fetal soft tissues for the assessment of pregnancy development

Ultrasonography, with its detailed imaging of the fetus, is very widely used in obstetrics. The primary aim of ultrasound scanning in pregnancy is to limit the risk of obstetric complications by early detection of abnormalities, such as intrauterine growth restriction and macrosomia. Currently, morphometric formulae are used for estimating fetal weight. They utilize basic biometric parameters. However, Hadlock formula, used for fetal weight estimation, has an error rate of 20%. For this reason

Rat white matter injury model induced by endothelin-1 injection: technical modification and pathological evaluation

White matter injury is an important cause of functional disability of the brain. We comprehensively analyzed a modified endothelin-1 (ET-1) injection-induced white matter injury model in the rat which is very valuable for investigating the underlying mechanisms of subcortical ischemic stroke. ET-1 was stereotactically injected into the internal capsule of the rat. To avoid complications with leakage of ET-1 into the lateral ventricle, the safest trajectory angle to the target was established

Usefulness of high-frequency ultrasound in the monitoring of laser treatment of acne scars

years, there has been an increase in the incidence of acne in the age group >20 years(3). Acne vulgaris is a condition of complex, multifactorial etiology. It may be also associated with complications in the form of skin lesions, such as vascular and pigmented lesions, atrophic and hypertrophic scars, as well as keloids(2). Atrophic scars, which are usually found on the face, account for the majority of complications associated with collagen degradation. Hypertrophic scars, which most often appear

The previous studies, which are yet not numerous, have shown that a percentage of the patients undergoing mastectomy and breast reconstruction may reach 22.4% (Tarkowski et al. 2017). However, the complications that accompany the introduction of the implant (expander, final prosthesis) remain a major challenge for oncological surgeons. The

Directed blood donor program decreases donor exposure for children with sickle cell disease requiring chronic transfusion

In children with sickle cell disease (SCD), primary and secondary prevention of strokes require indefinite regular blood transfusion therapy. The risks associated with repeated transfusions include alloimmunization and increased donor exposure. The Charles Drew Program is a directed blood donor program designed to lower donor exposure, decreasing the associated complications of transfusion; however, no evidence exists demonstrating the magnitude of the benefit to the recipient. Further, the use

performed after hip replacement surgeries is useful in the assessment of hematoma. The randomized study did not reveal statistically significant differ­ences between the group with and without drainage, thus suggesting that this practice can be abandoned, except for selected cases. Due to a short hospital stay, it is recommended to conduct an ultrasound scan in addition to routine radiography and laboratory tests in order to reduce the risk of complications.

In the patients with ovarian carcinoma, the median value of the Ascites Index at which paracentesis was required was 310 mm (range: 273–389 mm). To avoid complications associated with excessive protein loss, 2000 mL of fluid was evacuated at a single occasion. Following the procedure, the median value of the Ascites Index was 129 mm (range: 121–145 mm) in the patients with ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome and 146 cm (119–220 mm) in

It is characterized by a variety of motor symptoms including stupor, posturing, catalepsy, waxy flexibility, mutism, negativism, mannerisms, stereotypic behaviour, and extreme agitation (1). Catatonia is a psychiatric emergency and it increases the risk of certain medical complications and mortality due to dehydration, immobility, and sympathetic nervous system hyperactivity, which are
