Objective To study the value of ultrasound in etiologic diagnosis of piriformis syndrome.Methods 40 cases of piriformis syndrome underwent ultrasound examination. The morphology of piriformis,piriformis lower hole and sciatic nerve of both the affected and normal side were studied,and the thickness of them were also measured. The results of the two sides were compared,and the relativity of the three data was analyzed. Results In those of the piriformis syndrome,the morphology of the piriformis was greatly changed.The thickness of the affected side was larger than that of the normal side( P 0. 05),and the size of the piriformis lower hole was significantly smaller in the affected side( P 0. 05),and the thickness of the sciatic nerve was larger in the normal side( P 0. 05). There was a negative correlation between the thickness of the piriformis,piriformis lower hole and sciatic nerve. Conclusions Ultrasound can clearly display the piriformis and the surrounding tissue. It was useful for etiologic diagnosis of piriformis syndrome.
