OBJECTIVE The study was undertaken to assess the reproducibility of endometrial thickness measurements by transvaginal ultrasonography (TVS). METHODS In a prospective blind study, two examiners measured the endometrial thickness of 25 patients by TVS on two separate occasions 30 minutes apart. RESULTS The reliability test performed for each examiner was(More)
Cystadenofibroma of the ovary, a relatively rare benign tumor, usually appears during the fourth and fifth decades. This tumor has malignant ultrasonographic features and may also macroscopically appear as malignant during surgery. Since this tumor has a rare malignant potential, it is well-advised to be aware of the possibility of a cystadenofibroma before(More)
Uterine fibroids are the most common of uterine benign tumors. Generally, the ultrasonic appearance of uterine fibroids is typical, and diagnosis is uncomplicated. However, the sonographic characteristics of fibroids undergoing cystic degeneration, and especially those of the submucous type, may be misleading. We present a series of submucous fluids with(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of vaginal sonography in the detection of endometrial abnormalities in patients with postmenopausal bleeding (PMB). METHODS In a prospective study, 54 patients with PMB were examined with vaginal ultrasonography prior to dilatation and curettage. The mean endometrial thickness was compared with the(More)
One hundred two postmenopausal women underwent ultrasonographic evaluation of adnexal masses before surgery. Twenty-nine (28%) had malignant tumors and 73 (72%) had benign tumors. Two of 33 patients with a "simple cyst" smaller than 5 cm in diameter by ultrasound had malignant ovarian tumors. Twenty-two of the 52 women (42%) with "complex masses" by(More)
Fetal renal anatomy was assessed in 660 apparently normal fetuses. The problems of technique of visualization of the kidneys are outlined. A correlation of fetal kidney length and gestational age is presented. The results are presented to be used as an adjunct in establishing fetal gestational age, as well as the assessment of normal renal morphology in(More)
Basing on the description of a specific case and a review of literature, the article discusses the relationship between persisting left ven cava superior and pacemaker therapy. The article covers the technical problems caused by the vascular anomaly, the complications which can be expected, the possibilities in respect of recognising the vascular anomaly,(More)
The possible antiestrogenic effect of clomiphene citrate on endometrial growth was assessed by serial transabdominal ultrasonographic measurements in 46 women with unexplained infertility. A significantly higher (p < 0.05) rate of endometrial growth was observed in the 8 women who conceived compared with the 38 women who failed to conceive. A thicker(More)
Primary lung sarcomas are rare but aggressive tumors accounting for less than 0.5% of all lung tumors. The diagnosis of primary lung sarcoma should only be considered after exclusion of other sites. A 32-year-old female presented with recurrent hemorrhagic pleural effusions, shortness of breath and persistent cough. Pleural effusion was drained twice, and(More)
Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is the most common cause of isolated thrombocytopenia in healthy people. ITP may rarely coexist with autoimmune thyroid disorders, which may indicate more complex defect in immune system. Primary ITP usually responds well to steroids and intravenous immunoglobulins. However, ITP may be difficult to treat when associated with(More)
