Postoperative ultrasonography of the musculoskeletal system.

Chun KA, Cho KH - Ultrasonography (2015)

Bottom Line: In particular, it is not affected by the excessive metal artifacts that appear on computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging.Another benefit of ultrasonography is its capability to dynamically assess the pathologic movement in joints, muscles, or tendons.This article discusses the frequent applications of musculoskeletal ultrasonography in various postoperative situations including those involving the soft tissues around the metal hardware, arthroplasty, postoperative tendons, recurrent soft tissue tumors, bone unions, and amputation surgery.

ABSTRACT
Ultrasonography of the postoperative musculoskeletal system plays an important role in the Epub ahead of print accurate diagnosis of abnormal lesions in the bone and soft tissues. Ultrasonography is a fast and reliable method with no harmful irradiation for the evaluation of postoperative musculoskeletal complications. In particular, it is not affected by the excessive metal artifacts that appear on computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging. Another benefit of ultrasonography is its capability to dynamically assess the pathologic movement in joints, muscles, or tendons. This article discusses the frequent applications of musculoskeletal ultrasonography in various postoperative situations including those involving the soft tissues around the metal hardware, arthroplasty, postoperative tendons, recurrent soft tissue tumors, bone unions, and amputation surgery.

A 69-year-old man with left buttock pain after total hip arthroplasty.A. The anterior-posterior radiograph shows total hip arthoplasty with no definite abnormality. B. Magnetic resonance image shows poor delineation of structures due to the artifact. C. Sonogram shows anechoic fluid collection (arrows) just posterior to ischial tuberosity (arrowheads), suggesting ischio-gluteal bursitis. D. Ultrasound-guided steroid injection (arrows) into the bursa was performed.

Mentions: The detection of a hip effusion, which is indicative of the joint pathology including an infection, is probably a major indication of ultrasonography of the symptomatic hip after arthroplasty. Other indications include the evaluation of an iliopsoas tendon, a periprosthetic hematoma in patients with persistent wound drainage, an acetabular element, or bursitis (Fig. 5) appearing as a septated cystic mass [6].
