Last Friday I had surgery to remove my gallbladder. Look at the difference in the swelling from all the gas! I’ve been having on and off complications for over 2 years and recently it just kept on getting worse and more consistent. This has been a very strange experience. It is an odd feeling to know you have one less organ inside you. The healing pain is extraordinary at times, but every day gets better. And the trial and error period I have just embarked on about what foods I can consume. Hopefully in a months total time the surgeon told me I will fully be “mended” and another week from now I should gain my strength, appetite and pep in my step again. My biggest fear is that this surgery doesn’t cure all the issues I’ve had prior to the removal. All the good juju vibes welcome! . . . . . . #gallbladder#gallbaldderremoval#surgery#organremoval#byegallbaldder#surgerygassucks#onelessorgan#recovery#surgeryrecovery#scars#laparoscopic#laparoscopicsurgery#laparoscopicscars#tattoos#pma

New brand for a new @retinography • Since I started this page almost 7 years ago, I aimed sharing HD images of different retinal diseases and treatments. At that time I was a senior retina surgery fellow and I understood that Instagram was a social media and that scientific information should not be checked nor spread on it. • On the other side, I was undergoing thru an exciting moment of learning and I was always concerned about the quality of clinical cases documentation. So… I NEEDED TO SHARE THOSE IMAGES! That’s how this page was “born”! • During this 7 years a lot has changed in both my life and how the world share information. Several #ophthalmology and #retina profiles started and I was inspired by many of them such as: The amazing pediatric ophthalmology cases shared by Dr Martinez-Castellanos @retinamexico | The “how I balance” “real-life” versus “physician-life” shared by Dr Calzada @jordical_retina | Amazing pictures from @istanbulretina @retinaphotos @austin_retina_photography @retinayvitreocolombia @west_coast_retina_photo_dept and @retina4life | and the recently introduced surgical-tips @retinatips ). • In the past few weeks I noticed how many inconsistent information have been shared in the social medias and I realized that I should use this account in a different way. From now on @retinography will share pictures and videos followed by scientific information, including references for consultation. I hope to spread reliable and usable information thus help you guys in your daily practice. • This is the new visual identity and, from now on, I’ll sign all the posts. I’m looking forward to read comments/suggestions from you! • Ricardo Leitão Guerra, MD FICO • #oftalmologia#oftalmo#ophthalmo#oftalmologo#vitrectomy#vitrectomia#cirurgia#surgery#ocular
#update// my dear love is coming back home!!! He will be transferred to the Red Deer Hospital to have surgery on both knees, one which is broken and to repair the Tendons that tore off. His first surgery went extremely well and they’re happy with how fast he’s healing!! I can’t wait to be able to see him everyday to help his recovery process. 1 month in the hospital and perhaps a few more when he’s discharged. It could’ve been much worse. Thank you everyone for sending kind thoughts and prayers. #love#hope#prayer#hospital#surgery#knees#good#news#excited#long#haul#happy#positive#thinking#missing#him

Hip injection using image intensifier Intra-articular injection of the hip joint has a number of potential indications. Therapeutically these range from traditional anti-inflammatory steroid injections to newer interventions such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections or visco-supplementation with Hyaluronic acid, for the treatment of early osteoarthritis. Diagnostic injections into the joint with short acting local anaesthetic agents are commonplace to demonstrate the source of pain as being intra-articular and from the hip.

What do you see? Let me guess, omg she has her cleavage and a bit of boob showing 🤦♀️. Look again, that's right now you see it my beautiful battle scar! Today (26/03/2019) marks one year since I had my heart bypass surgery. One year since my life changed in the whole 360 degree manner. Today was the start of the best year of my life. The year I learned so much about myself and learned things I never knew about me. One whole year on and after thanking Allah SWT I have the following people to thank in keeping me going when I thought that's it I give up. My siblings @deenforever and @mubeen.uk I can't thank him enough for you guys. @medusa_from_manchester and @rojiiiiiiiiin just thank you for being you! #happyoneyearheartbypassanniversarytome #heartbypass#surgery#brokenheartfixed#march#2018#2019
Neurotoxin Tarsorrhaphy A 69-year-old man with history of facial malignancy presented with mechanical and cicatricial left lower eyelid retraction and ectropion after surgical resection and radiation (Figure 1). Examination revealed exposure keratopathy and a non-healing corneal epithelial defect. There can be delayed wound healing and chronic fibrosis in patients who have had radiation. Thus, this patient was not a good candidate for surgical or temporary suture tarsorrhaphy. Figure 1. External photograph demonstrating the left upper eyelid position, exposure keratopathy, and diffuse injection of the left eye prior to receiving neurotoxin. Figure 2. External photographs demonstrating complete ptosis of the left upper lid two weeks following injection of neurotoxin (A). Upon actively opening the eyelid, partial ptosis of the left upper eyelid is achieved. #optometry#ophthalmology#md#od#retina#fundus#dilaton#pupil#optometrist#ophthalmologist#surgery#sx#eye#eyes#webeye#atlas#cases#optometrycases#er#student#biology#neuro#neurology#brain
2013 | 2019 - It’s time to get real for a second. “Progress” isn’t always going to look how you anticipated... • • • More than a year a ago, I had abs. That my was idea of health. But that was just my outer appearance. For almost 12 years, I’ve felt “off”... downright miserable at times. 5+ years ago, I started searching. In 5 years time, I have seen more than 25 doctors, had countless tests run, and had 3 abdominal surgeries. I was ignored for years, until we moved to Houston. Here, we found doctors that actually listened to me. They took me seriously. After countless tests, 10 months ago, I found out I am infertile. 9 months ago, several neurological diseases were found. 8 months ago, I was diagnosed with #hashimotos. After one abdominal surgery 7 months ago, I was diagnosed with #pcos and severe #endometrosis. I was referred to a national specialist for my “severe case”, and by January I was being wheeled back into surgery with a team of specialty surgeons. They saved me from 2 cancers, that were already brewing inside me. That was terrifying to wrap my head around. They saved me, when countless doctors before blew me off. • • • What you see is a 65+ lb weight difference between these photos. If you look close enough, you can see all 10 scars on my very swollen abdomen from my 3 surgeries. Scars I was told are “ugly”, or that I need to keep covered up. What you can’t see are the mental scars, or the dozens of internal scars where doctors removed organs and cut out masses. You can’t see the internal foot long scar that goes from above my belly button all the way to my pelvis. But man, can I feel it. 😨 The moral of this story is TRUST YOURSELF. You know your body better than anyone. If you feel off, don’t take “I don’t know” for an answer. Fight for yourself. But please remember, #abs don’t equal health. Skinny, fit, or ripped don’t equal health. What’s inside you determines health. 🧬Now, it’s time to

As many of you know, last June I broke my right kneecap into 4 pieces. The recovery process has been very excruciating, frustrating but yet I’ve come through. Well...back mid January my kneecap broke again (not my fault nor my surgeons). I found a new surgeon here in Florida and he was able to save my full kneecap through different hardware and bone grafting. I’m going to be honest...I’ve been angry, hurt, devastated, mentally and physical pained. I’ve had to put my life on hold three times now due to surgeries in the last 4 years. It doesn’t get easier but I know I always come out stronger. I know my body will heal. These scars will heal. I’ll eventually emotionally heal. This is only temporary. I know things could be much worse and I’m so very thankful. Good news - it’s been almost 10 weeks since surgery, my bones are healing/growing and I have finally started physical therapy. Slowly but surely this knee is starting to slightly bend once again. With that, comes more anxiety attacks. For those who have known, thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you have done, said and sent! 💜 #surgery#surgeryrecovery#kneesurgery#kneecapsurgery#kneesurgeryrecovery#brokenknee#patellafracture#physicaltherapy#physicalhealth#physicaltraining#gettingmylifeback#mentalhealth#overcomingobstacles#thisistemporary#comeback#anxiety
Filtering fat in the office for facial rejuvenating fat injections. I harvested the fat from the patient’s abdomen and process it very carefully so it injects smooth. I use it as a long lasting filter in the cheeks, around the mouth or eyelids, and temples.
March 2019 entering my first medical mission in Guatemala at Hospital de la familia in Nuevo Progreso WOW! What an amazing and meaningful experience it has been. If y’all know me as a child you know why Guatemala has been a special place to me but now it has been fully ingraved into my heart. The people, culture, food and the experience in helping people who really need help is an amazing feeling and reminded me why I have gone into health care in the first place. Most of all I was blessed to have experienced this trip with some amazing people who have became now family. #familia#teamwork#medical#missiontrip#genteam#unforgettable#canwegobackplease#surgery#dayandnight#nevergiveup
I cannot believe that today marks 11 weeks since my #mastectomy#surgery! 😏 Each day I'm getting better; I'm back at the gym (when #chemo and it's nasty side effects are playing nice) but still have issues with the cording in my left arm. I need help to do up my own bra 🙈 In the first 2.5 weeks I had these lovely surgical drains attached to me and I wouldn't have survived without my @draindollies! It helped me take my first mini walk in the hospital, renew my license, go to shops and walk on the treadmill at the gym! Thank you @rachelallthingsic for recommending them to me! #breastcancer#postsurgery#surgicaldrains#thisiscancer#breastcancerawareness#cancerwarrior#cancer#stage1cancer
So adorable 😍😍😍😍❤️ . Sturge-Weber Syndrome (SWS) is a congenital, non-familial disorder caused by the GNAQ gene mutation. It is characterized by a congenital facial birthmark and neurological abnormalities. Other symptoms associated with Sturge-Weber can include eye, endocrine and organ irregularities, as well as developmental disabilities. Each case of Sturge-Weber Syndrome is unique and exhibits the characterizing findings to varying degrees. . There are 3 main types of SWS... . Type 1 is the most common. In type 1, the blood vessels grow in an unusual way (vascular malformation) on the face and brain. Type 1 can lead to seizures. The seizures usually happen before a child’s first birthday and can continue throughout their life. Type 1 can delay a child’s development and cause learning disabilities and glaucoma. Glaucoma is a condition that increases pressure inside the eye. . Type 2 involves a port wine stain on the face. This type of SWS doesn’t usually affect the brain. It can lead to glaucoma, differences in blood flow and headaches. These symptoms can last into adulthood. . Type 3 often involves unusual blood vessel growth on the brain. Type 3 SWS has no port wine stain and usually no glaucoma. Diagnosing type 3 can be difficult, and it is often confused with other conditions. Doctors use brain scans to identify and diagnose this type. . SWS can cause many eye and internal organ problems such as: Blood vessel growth on the brain can cause neurological problems in types 1 and 3. Seizures are the most common early symptom, often starting by age 1. They may also experience weakness or loss of the use of one side of the body. . If you or a loved one are experiencing these conditions, please ask us and contact your primary healthcare physician to prevent any further complications. Stay helping and stay cautious everyone! 🤓 .

Ein großer Vorteil, wenn man in den Ferien Uni hat, ist das man noch die guten Bücher in der Bib angreifen kann 🤓 #nerf#dygirl#happyme Nachdem ich heute morgen schon im Krankenhaus war, um bei der Wirbelsäulen Visite mitzulaufen, hatten wir heute in der Uni nochmal eine Veranstaltung in Bezug auf die Organisation des praktischen Examen in ein paar Wochen 🙈🙈 sehr spannend! Außerdem noch eine wahnsinnig tolle Vorlesung, wo wir einfach mit einer externen Medizinerin Patientenfälle durchgesprochen haben und in der Form nochmal viel Physiologie und Anatomie wiederholt haben. #uniday#thiemeverlag#treppel#neuroanatomie#chirugie#surgery#medicine#physiotherapy
Last night I attended a session at the hospital where we learned more about suturing and surgical knot tying ➰ We have these opportunities once in a while, and I try to take advantage of all the practice I can get before rotations start this summer 🏥 Hope you all have a great day 😄
Bilateral Cranial Nerve VI Palsies Secondary to Arachnoid Cyst A 4-year-old boy was admitted for failure to thrive, worsening anorexia, and vomiting. Ophthalmology was consulted for evaluation of abnormal eye alignment. Medical history was significant for a 10q26 deletion, which involves the ARMS2 gene, in addition to hypotonia and developmental delay. Examination was significant for bilateral 6th nerve palsies with bilateral grade I disc edema. MRI showed left-sided polymicrogyria and a large cystic lesion in the left temporal lobe that appeared bright on T2-weighted imaging. These findings were consistent with an arachnoid cyst. Additionally, there was a 6 mm right midline shift with posterior globe flattening, protrusion of the optic nerve heads bilaterally, and mild prominence of the subarachnoid space of the bilateral optic nerves, consistent with increased intracranial pressure (ICP). Arachnoid cysts, if large, can lead to displacement of neurovascular structures and increased ICP. Review of literature suggests that arachnoid cysts may be a rare cause of acquired sixth nerve palsy and strabismus in children. Neurosurgical shunting followed by strabismus surgery relieved the abduction deficit and esotropia in several case reports. This patient underwent a left cystoperitoneal shunt with improvement in his systemic symptoms. At his one month follow up appointment, he had normal ocular motility and alignment and his papilledema had resolved.
Here, a patient shows a prolapse of the iris through an open globe defect in the cornea at the 10-o'clock position. This represents "extrusion of globe contents," and signifies an open globe injury. Photo courtesy Ted Brenkert
Key clinical clues to recognizing subtle globe rupture: Enophthalmos, edematous circumferential subconjunctival hemorrhage and irregularly shaped pupil – all clues to an underlying globe rupture A careful assessment of globe symmetry from the head of the bed may reveal a subtle enophthalmos. Any irregularly shaped pupil (not only the classic ‘tear-drop’ shaped pupil) should raise your suspicion for a globe rupture. A large circumferential edematous traumatic subconjunctival hemorrhage as well as a uveal prolapse are concerning for a globe rupture. Remember that assessment of IOP is contraindicated in patients with suspected globe rupture.
HERE ARE SOME “DO NOTS” FOR BLUNT TRAUMA TO THE EYE ❌Do not apply pressure to the eye or globe. ❌Do not rub or scratch the eyes. ❌Do not apply any eye drop or medication not prescribed by a doctor. ❌Where there is bleeding, do not take any Non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as Aspirin because they could worsen bleeding. ❌If the object is stuck in the eye, do not remove it. Keep it stationary while on the way to a health facility by using a paper cup taped over the affected eye.
Canalicular Laceration - Dog Bite 5-year-old white female presenting with dog bite to left side of face Figure 1: Using the pigtail probe in canalicular repair A) The wound is explored and cut ends of the canaliculus are identified, if possible. The wound is irrigated and explored for debris. Deep sutures have been placed to reapproximate the deep tissues and medial canthal tendon. They are temporarily held by a bulldog clamp and will be tied later. B) The intact canaliculus is intubated with a smooth-tipped pigtail probe. The probe is passed through the common canaliculus, posterior to the medial canthal tendon, and out the proximal end of the lacerated side. C) A 6-0 nylon suture is passed through the eye of the probe. D) The probe is withdrawn leaving the 6-0 nylon suture in place. (Surgery performed by Richard Allen, MD, PhD). TREATMENT Primary surgical repair of the lacerated or avulsed canaliculus is recommended within 24 hours. Complications with early Worst pigtail probes (with an open barbed end that often caused trauma during surgery) have caused some surgeons to use Crawford stents (not described here) in primary repair. However the rounded, smooth, eyed tips of current pigtail probes make repair with the pigtail probe (as described here) an excellent option. Jones tube (Pyrex tube placed through a dacryocystorhinostomy ostium) should be used only if other options fail, which is more likely with delayed repair.
