ÖZET

Amaç: Bu çalışmada Türk toplumunda 0-15 yaş arası çocuklarda karaciğer, böbrekler ve dalak standart boyutlarının ultrasonografik olarak yaş, cinsiyet, boy ve kiloya göre hesaplanması amaçlandı.

Gereç ve Yöntem: Çalışma için sistematik veya organospesifik hastalığı olmayan 302 sağlıklı çocuğun karaciğer için sağ lob organ derinliği, böbrekler için longütudinal uzunluk, genişlik ve hilus-korteks derinliği, dalak için poller arası maksimum uzunluk ve hilus düzeyinde maksimum genişlik ölçümleri yapıldı. Ayrıca çocukların yaş, cinsiyet, boy ve kilo değerleri kaydedildi.

Bulgular: Karaciğer derinliği ortalamasının 100,49±18.46, sağ böbrek longitudinal uzunluğu ortalamasının 80.04 ±14.33, sol böbrek longitudinal uzunluğu ortalamasının 81.22±14.92, dalak longitudinal uzunluğu ortalamasının ise 81.24±15.51 olduğu gözlendi. Bulunan değerler ile somatik morfometrik parametreler (boy, kilo) ve yaş arasındaki lineer korelasyon değerleri anlamlı bulundu. Ölçülen her bir parametre için iki cinsiyet arasında anlamlı fark saptanmadı.

Sonuç: Karaciğer, dalak ve böbrek boyutlarının yaşa, boy ve kiloya bağlı değiştiği normal değerlerin bu özelliklere göre modifiye edilmesi gerektiği görüldü. Her yaş grubunda Türk çocuklarda normal sınırlardaki değerler literatürde yer alan çalışmalarla büyük oranda benzerlik gösteriyordu. 

ABSTRACT

Aim: The aim of this study was to determine the standard dimensions of liver, kidneys and spleen in children aged 0-15 years in Turkey by ultrasonography according to age, sex, height and weight.

Material and Method: 302 healthy children without systemic or organ specific disease were measured for right lobe organ depth for liver, longitudinal length for kidney, width and depth of hilus-cortex, maximum length of pole for spleen and maximum width of hilus for spleen. In addition, age, gender, height and weight values ​​of the children were recorded.

Results: Mean liver depth was 100.49 ± 18.46, right renal longitudinal length was 80.04 ± 14.33, left renal longitudinal length was 81.22 ± 14.92, and splenic longitudinal length was 81.24 ± 15.51. Linear correlation values ​​between somatic morphometric parameters (height, weight) and age were found to be significant. There was no significant difference between the two genders for each parameter measured.

Conclusion: It was seen that liver, spleen and kidney dimensions changed according to age, height and weight and normal values ​​should be modified according to these characteristics. The normal range values ​​of Turkish children in each age group were highly similar to the studies in the literature.
