Initial duplex ultrasonography of local clinic at 2 months ago showed the acute DVT of right PV with thrombus and dilated vein [Figure 1]a.
However radiological evalution like colour duplex ultrasonography is usually helpful for distinguishing ischaemic and non-ischaemic priapism during attacks and also helpful in guiding treatment.
Abbreviations EVAR - endovascular aortic repair AAA - abdominal aortic aneurysm CTA - computed tomography angiography DUS - duplex ultrasonography scanning Computed tomography angiography (CTA) has been considered a gold standard in check-ups after endovascular treatment of abdominal aneurysm, but a protocol incorporating annual duplex ultrasonography scanning (DUS) was introduced, and CTA was performed only if abnormalities were identified or DUS was not diagnostic [5].
On the other hand, pulsed Doppler sonography was used to obtain the peak systolic velocity with a Doppler gate placed at sites of aliasing and then 2-4 cm proximal to the suspected lesion and then the velocity ratio was calculated so that by both colour imaging and duplex ultrasonography were recorded.
There is no facility to store the images for later viewing when using standard duplex ultrasonography.
Other diagnostic modalities that have been considered include magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) and duplex ultrasonography. Magnetic resonance angiography has a considerably higher time-expenditure and also a lower sensitivity (47%) than angiography [5].
To investigate whether this patient suffered from endofibrosis, resting arterial duplex ultrasonography was done, which revealed no stenosis and normal diameters of the external iliac artery and common iliac artery, where femoral arteries appeared to be relatively wide, as might be expected in well-trained individuals [4] (Table 4).
High-resolution duplex ultrasonography provides both anatomic location and functional information about the lower-extremity arterial system and has good sensitivity and specificity as compared with invasive angiography [18-21].
Portal and superior mesenteric vein blood flow was evaluated by Duplex ultrasonography intraoperative, immediately postoperative as well as on the first and second postoperative day.
Duplex ultrasonography confirmed the presence of a single feeding vessel into the lesion and the lesion was diagnosed as haemangioma.
For excluding chronic venous insufficiency clinically expressed by edema, pruritus stasis dermatitis, hair loss,lipodermatosclerosis with or without venous ulceration, duplex ultrasonography was performed and found to be within normal limits.
