Venous ulcers can be a chronic debilitating condition with a high rate of recurrence. Herein we describe a case of a patient who successfully underwent an arterial bypass for rest pain but returned wi...
Several studies suggest that local warming therapy (LWT) may help to treat chronic wounds, such as pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, arterial ulcers, and diabetic foot ulcers. However, evidence supporti...
Venous leg ulcers are open lesions between the knee and the ankle joint, which occur in the presence of venous insufficiency. There are theories to explain the causes of venous insufficiency, which ul...
Venous leg ulcers are open skin wounds on the lower leg which can be slow to heal, and are both painful and costly. The point prevalence of open venous leg ulcers in the UK is about 3 cases per 10,000...
The purpose of this pictorial essay is to review different etiologies for lower extremity pain encountered on lower extremity venous sonography including acute deep venous thrombosis, chronic postthro...
About 15% to 30% of patients with venous leg ulcers have a peripheral arterial disease (PAD) associated. The compression band is still a controversial issue in this context. It allows the ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate if the investigational medicinal product CHRONSEAL intended for future treatment of chronic venous leg ulcers is safe and tolerated and if it has a...
The femoral approach is the preferred vascular access for the set-up of emergency catheters in severely traumatized patient. This location combines simplicity and speed of installation, it...
The study will test a new wound healing dressing called Taliderm® on leg ulcers caused by chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). Some people with CVI have poor vein circulation that causes ...
Using ultrasound to guide vascular catheterism in children is highly recommended for central venous access. It has been proven that central venous line is inserted faster, with fewer attem...
Impaired venous blood flow or venous return (venous stasis), usually caused by inadequate venous valves. Venous insufficiency often occurs in the legs, and is associated with EDEMA and sometimes with VENOUS STASIS ULCERS at the ankle.
The use of focused, high-frequency sound waves to destroy tissue. It is sometimes used in conjunction with but is distinct from INTERVENTIONAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
Very small encapsulated gas bubbles (diameters of micrometers) that can be used as CONTRAST MEDIA, and in other diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Upon exposure to sufficiently intense ultrasound, microbubbles will cavitate, rupture, disappear, release gas content, etc. Such characteristics of the microbubbles can be used to enhance diagnostic tests, dissolve blood clots, and deliver drugs or genes for therapy.
Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).
The escape of diagnostic or therapeutic material from the vessel into which it is introduced into the surrounding tissue or body cavity.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
