Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Ultrasonic (US) examination is a simple, effective and quick method of investigating the abdominal wall. We evaluated various cystic and solid lesions in 26 patients by US. In 24 the US diagnosis was correct and revealed pathologic conditions of the abdominal wall such as abscesses, cellulitis, metastatic tumors and hematomas. In 2 patients lesions of the abdominal wall were missed. All but 3 patients were treated surgically.
