Ce advisor pratique s'adresse à tous les praticiens désirant réaliser des infiltrations et autres gestes percutanés sous guidage échographique des pathologies abarticulaires et articulaires.
Depuis quelques années le guidage échographique, non-irradiant, facile d'accès et souvent plus adapté pour les constructions périarticulaires (tendons, bourses, etc.) a partiellement remplacé le guidage scopique. Il permet de repérer les buildings vasculonerveuses et de contrôler en temps réel l'injection au niveau de l. a. cible. Néanmoins cette process de guidage pose des questions spécifiques d'asepsie avec los angeles manipulation de l. a. sonde et nécessite de reconsidérer et d'adapter les voies d'abord qui peuvent être différentes des voies classiques connues sous scopie.
Cette method requiert donc un apprentissage et une bonne maîtrise des symptoms, du matériel et de l'écho- anatomie. Richement illustré avec de nombreux schémas, figures et vidéos, didactique et extrêmement pratique cet ouvrage aborde les options de plus de 30 infiltrations classées par région anatomique. Pour chaque geste sont discutés :
- les précautions préalables (indications, informations au sufferer, hémostase),
- le matériel nécessaire, les précautions d'asepsie, l. a. place du patient,
- l. a. ou les voies d'abord avec les photographs de référence et les critères de réussite,
- l. a. posologie (dérivés cortisoniques, viscosupplémentation, plasma enrichi en plaquettes) et les précautions post-injection (type d'immobilisation et durée).
