Unexpected Vascular Ultrasound Findings Prompting Hemodynamic Management in an Infant in Respiratory Failure

Often, use of point-of-care ultrasound modalities at the patient bedside is dichotomized into diagnostic versus procedural ultrasound. However, as described in this case, it is important to recognize the crossover that can occur in procedural ultrasound and the potential for making diagnostic discov...

ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY IN CHILDREN • Doppler Echocardiographic Features of Pulmonary Vein Stenosis in Ex-Preterm Children

PVS in children causes significant morbidity and mortality (estimated 3-year survival rate of 43%). While diagnosis can be made with computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, cardiac catheterization, and echocardiography, only echocardiography which has the advantage of low cost and good saf...

BRIEF RESEARCH COMMUNICATIONS • Serial Assessment of Tricuspid Annular Plane Systolic Excursion Is Associated with Death or Lung Transplant in Children with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH)

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) in the pediatric population may be classified as primary/idiopathic or may be associated with congenital heart (CHD) or lung disease. Over time, right ventricular (RV) function determines morbidity and mortality......

RESEARCH REPORT • Gastric Emptying Time of Two Different Quantities of Clear Fluids in Children: A Double Blinded Randomized Controlled Study

Perioperative pulmonary aspiration in children is infrequent and is more likely to occur in emergency situations than in elective surgeries. Gastric ultrasound in pediatric patients could help identify children with significant gastric volumes before anesthesia......

ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY IN CHILDREN | Longitudinal Variation in Presence and Severity of Cardiac Valve Regurgitation in Healthy Children

In both normal adults and pediatric populations, trivial or mild valvular regurgitation (VR) is a common finding. However, in a specific individual, such finding may raise the concern whether this is a physiologic or pathologic finding......
