Effect of Initial Bedside Ultrasonography on Emergency Department Skin and Soft Tissue Infection Management.

Ann Emerg Med 2019 Mar 26. Epub 2019 Mar 26.

Department of Emergency Medicine and Department of Medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases, Olive View-UCLA Medical Center, Sylmar, CA.

Study Objective: We examine the utility of emergency department (ED) ultrasonography in treatment of skin and soft tissue infections.

Methods: We enrolled ED patients with skin and soft tissue infections and surveyed clinicians in regard to their pre-ultrasonography certainty about the presence or absence of an abscess, their planned management, post-ultrasonography findings, and actual management. We determined sensitivity and specificity of ultrasonography and clinical evaluation, and assessed appropriateness of management changes based on initial clinical assessment and outcomes through 1-week follow-up.

Breast imaging after dark: patient outcomes following evaluation for breast abscess in the emergency department after hours.

Emerg Radiol 2016 Feb 3;23(1):29-33. Epub 2015 Oct 3.

Department of Radiology, University of Michigan Health System, 2910H Taubman Center, 1500 E. Medical Center Dr., SPC 5326, Ann Arbor, MI, 48109-5326, USA.

In our study, we sought to report the management, clinical outcomes, and follow-up rates of patients who presented for evaluation of breast abscess in the Emergency Department (ED) after hours. A retrospective search of ultrasound reports at our institution identified all patients from January 1, 2009 to June 30, 2013 who were scanned in the ED after hours to evaluate for breast abscess. Patient demographics, clinical information, imaging findings, follow-up rates, and outcomes were reviewed. Read More

Bedside ultrasound in the diagnosis of complex hand infections: a case series.

J Emerg Med 2015 Jan 12;48(1):63-8. Epub 2014 Oct 12.

Department of Emergency Medicine, Tufts University School of Medicine, Baystate Medical Center, Springfield, Massachusetts.

Background: The red, swollen, infected hand can be a diagnostically challenging presentation in the emergency department (ED). Hand infections are a relatively uncommon ED complaint, and diagnoses may range from simple cellulitis to deep space abscess, and even to suppurative flexor tenosynovitis. The accurate differentiation of these clinical entities is of paramount importance to healing and recovery of function. Read More

Bedside emergency ultrasound in a case of acute parotid duct sialolithiasis.

J Emerg Med 2014 Aug 28;47(2):e49-51. Epub 2014 May 28.

Department of Emergency Medicine, Naval Medical Center, San Diego, California.

Background: Sialolithiasis with salivary gland obstruction can mimic more frequently occurring illnesses such as facial and dental infection and abscess. It is often difficult to discern the etiology of facial pain and swelling on physical examination alone, requiring advanced imaging in the emergency department.

Case Report: We describe the case of a 37-year-old man who presented with 5 days of worsening unilateral facial pain and swelling. Read More

Ultrasound imaging for the rheumatologist III. Ultrasonography of the hip.

Clin Exp Rheumatol 2006 May-Jun;24(3):229-32

Cattedra di Reumatologia, Università di Roma La Sapienza, Roma, Rome, Italy.

Ultrasonography (US) is a reliable and useful diagnostic tool for the assessment of hip pathology. It depicts changes within the coxo-femoral joint (synovitis, erosions, osteophytes) and in the adjacent peri-articular tissues (calcifications, tendonitis, enthesitis, bursitis) in many rheumatic diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, spondyloarthritis, osteoarthritis, polymyalgia rheumatica ) and in some orthopaedic disorders (septic arthritis, trauma, abscess, painful hip after arthroplasty). It is commonly used both in adults and in children. Read More

Water bath evaluation technique for emergency ultrasound of painful superficial structures.

Am J Emerg Med 2004 Nov;22(7):589-93

Department of Emergency Medicine, Medical College of Georgia, 1120 15th Street, Atlanta, GA 30912-4007, USA.

Researchers have described the use of bedside emergency ultrasound as an effective way to evaluate for and accurately drain potential abscesses. Similarly, descriptions exist of long bone fracture evaluation in the wrist and hands. Tendon injury can also be detected with ultrasound and exploration can be obviated or at least focused.

[Diagnostic imaging in liver transplantation. Preoperative evaluation and postoperative complications].

Radiologe 2005 Jan;45(1):34-43

Institut für Diagnostische & Interventionelle Radiologie, Universitätsklinikum, Essen.

Complimentary to orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT), living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) is increasingly considered a therapeutic option in the therapy of end-stage liver disease. Accurate pre- and postoperative imaging is crucial for the transplantation success and represents an established part of the current evaluation algorithms. This article summarizes the most important requirements and the current imaging standards. Read More

Surgeon-performed ultrasound imaging in acute surgical disorders.

Curr Probl Surg 2001 Mar;38(3):141-212

Emory University School of Medicine, Department of Surgery, Trauma/Surgical Critical Care, Grady Memorial Hospital, Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

As the role of the general surgeon continues to evolve, the surgeon's use of ultrasound imaging will surely influence practice patterns, particularly for the evaluation of patients in the acute setting. With the use of real-time imaging, the surgeon receives "instantaneous" information to augment the physical examination, to narrow the differential diagnosis, or to initiate an intervention. With select ultrasound examinations, the surgeon can rapidly evaluate adult and pediatric patients with an acute abdomen, especially those patients who are hypotensive. Read More

Imaging techniques for pleural space infections.

Authors:
D L Levin J S Klein

Semin Respir Infect 1999 Mar;14(1):31-8

Department of Radiology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, MA 02215, USA.

Radiology plays a central role in the evaluation and management of pleural space infections. Conventional radiographs, including decubitus films, remain the primary radiological study in the detection of parapneumonic pleural effusions. Loculated collections develop as a result of visceral-to-parietal pleural adhesions and appear radiographically as longitudinally oriented, lenticular-shaped opacities. Read More

Computed tomography of the abdomen in the critically ill.

Authors:
A P Zingas

Crit Care Clin 1994 Apr;10(2):321-39

Department of Radiology, Wayne State University School of Medicine, Detroit, Michigan.

In one's attempt to arrive at the most accurate diagnosis in the critically ill, the selection of the most efficacious and rapid imaging modality can be problematic to clinicians, especially if the clinical presentation is confusing. The selection most often, is between US and CT. In general, US is advantageous in that it can be performed at bedside and is a faster and less costly examination. Read More

Neurol Med Chir (Tokyo) 1989 Aug;29(8):740-5

Twenty-five patients underwent bedside ultrasonographic examination through a postoperative skull defect, and the images were compared with axial computed tomography (CT) scans. The patients included 12 with cerebrovascular disease, two with brain tumor, one with a brain abscess, and 10 with head injury. Clear ultrasonographic images were obtained in all patients except one who had undergone a suboccipital craniectomy. Read More

Complicated infantile meningitis: evaluation by real-time sonography.

AJNR Am J Neuroradiol 1982 Jul-Aug;3(4):431-4

Real-time sonographic findings in 20 infants with bacterial meningitis are reported. The spectrum of features included normal scans, ventricular enlargement, focal areas of increased cortical echogenicity, ventricular bands, and cerebral abscess. Areas of increased cortical echogenicity on sonography representing meningoencephalitis corresponded to areas of contrast enhancement seen on computed tomography (CT). Read More
