What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

2. Ability of a single negative ultrasound to rule out deep vein thrombosis in pregnant women: A systematic review and meta-analysis

Ability of a single negative ultrasound to rule out deep vein thrombosis in pregnant women: A systematic review and meta-analysis The diagnostic accuracy of ultrasound (US) for suspected lower extremity deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in nonpregnant patients has been well validated. However, in pregnant women with suspected DVT and an initial negative US, serial US is generally recommended. We aimed to determine the ability of single negative US to exclude DVT in symptomatic pregnant women.Two (...) from these hard copy research charts. Risk of bias was low for the included populations and method of measurement, and low or high for completeness of follow up. A total of 635 pregnant patients with symptoms of DVT had an initial negative US examination. Of those, six were diagnosed with DVT during repeat serial testing (0.94%) and three developed DVT or PE during 3-month follow-up after serial ultrasonography (0.47%). The pooled false-negative rate of a single ultrasound was 1.27% (95% confidence

AIUM/IUGA Practice Parameter for the Performance of Urogynecological Ultrasound Examinations PRACTICEPARAMETERS AIUM/IUGA Practice Parameter for the Performance of Urogynecological Ultrasound Examinations Developed in Collaboration with the ACR, the AUGS, the AUA, and the SRU I. Introduction T he clinical aspects of this parameter were developed by the AIUM/IUGA Collaborative Committee in collabora- tion with other organizations whose members use ultrasound for performing pelvic floor (...) examinations (see “Acknowledgments”). Recommendations for practitioner require- ments, the written request for the examination, procedure documentation, and quality control vary among the organizations and are addressed by each separately. An ultrasound examination is a proven and useful procedure for evaluating the pelvic ?oor, including the urethra, bladder, vagina, uterus if possible, anorectum, and levator ani muscle. Pel- vic ?oor ultrasound (PFUS) examinations should be performed only when

5. Acoustic Shadowing Facilitates Ultrasound-guided Radial Artery Cannulation in Young Children

Acoustic Shadowing Facilitates Ultrasound-guided Radial Artery Cannulation in Young Children Arterial cannulation in young children can be challenging. Ultrasound guidance using focused acoustic shadowing may be suitable for guiding radial artery puncture in young children. The present research tested the hypothesis that ultrasound guidance using focused acoustic shadowing helps increase the success rate of radial artery cannulation in this population.In a double-blinded, parallel-group trial (...) , 79 young children undergoing surgery under general anesthesia were randomly assigned to two groups (1:1 ratio): the traditional ultrasound group and the novel ultrasound group. Young children in the traditional group underwent conventional ultrasound-guided radial artery puncture, whereas those in the novel ultrasound group underwent radial artery puncture guided by acoustic shadowing ultrasound with double developing lines. All radial artery punctures were performed using the short-axis out

Identification of patients and plaques vulnerable to future coronary events with near-infrared spectroscopy intravascular ultrasound imaging: a prospective, cohort study. Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) intravascular ultrasound imaging can detect lipid-rich plaques (LRPs). LRPs are associated with acute coronary syndromes or myocardial infarction, which can result in revascularisation or cardiac death. In this study, we aimed to establish the relationship between LRPs detected by NIRS (...) -intravascular ultrasound imaging at unstented sites and subsequent coronary events from new culprit lesions.In this prospective, cohort study (LRP), patients from 44 medical centres were enrolled in Italy, Latvia, Netherlands, Slovakia, UK, and the USA. Patients with suspected coronary artery disease who underwent cardiac catheterisation with possible ad hoc percutaneous coronary intervention were eligible to be enrolled. Enrolled patients underwent scanning of non-culprit segments using NIRS-intravascular

Cervical assessment by ultrasound for preventing preterm delivery. Measurement of cervical length by ultrasound is predictive of preterm birth (PTB). There are three methods of ultrasound cervical assessment: transvaginal (TVU), transabdominal (TAU), and transperineal (TPU, also called translabial). Cervical length measured by TVU is a relatively new screening test, and has been associated with better prediction of PTB than previously available tests. It is unclear if cervical length measured (...) by ultrasound is effective for preventing PTB. This is an update of a review last published in 2013.To assess the effectiveness of antenatal management based on transvaginal, transabdominal, and transperineal (also called translabial) ultrasound screening of cervical length for preventing preterm birth.For this update, we searched the Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth's Trials Register, ClinicalTrials.gov, and the WHO International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (ICTRP) to 30 August 2018; reviewed
