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...

ORIGINAL RESEARCH • Diagnostic Utility of Point of Care Ultrasound in Identifying Cervical Spine Injury in Emergency Settings

CT scan has emerged as a good screening tool in C-spine injury due to its high negative predictive value. However, in a hemodynamically unstable trauma patient, many clinical guidelines do not recommend CT scan, which results in delayed clearance of C-spine in these unstable patients.......

SHORT COMMUNICATION • Design and Comparison of a Hybrid to a Traditional In-Person Point-of-Care Ultrasound Course

Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) reduces procedural complications, improves diagnostic accuracy, and increases provider and patient satisfaction. In addition, the availability of less expensive ultrasound devices and the increasing accessibility of training programs have facilitated the growth of PO...

ORIGINAL INVESTIGATION • Left Atrial Expansion Index for Noninvasive Estimation of Pulmonary Capillary Wedge Pressure: A Cardiac Catheterization Validation Study

RHC, an invasive and potentially risky procedure, is the gold standard technique for accurate hemodynamic assessment and PCWP measurement. However, it is reserved to only highly selected cardiac subgroups of patients. However, it is reserved to only highly selected cardiac subgroups of patients ......

CASE REPORT • Perioperative Point-of-Care Ultrasound for Diagnosis of Acute Lower Extremity Arterial Thrombosis After Total Hip Arthroplasty Revision

In their conclusions, the author comment on the rare complication of acute arterial occlusion after hip arthroplasty, which can lead to devastating outcomes. In the immediate postoperative period, it may be difficult to rely on clinical presentation of acute limb ischemia to provide a timely diagno...

MULTIMODALITY IMAGING DOPPLER DILEMMAS • Pacemaker Lead–Induced Tricuspid Valve Stenosis?

Tricuspid valve (TV) stenosis (TS) is a rare condition and occurs in about 2.4% of cases of primary TV disease. Most commonly, it is caused from rheumatic disease. Endocarditis and large right atrial tumor are other causes of TS ......
