It will probably redefine the surgical scope of complete resections of pelvic tumors (cervical, rectal, and bladder cancer), improve nerve-sparing and pelvic floor reconstruction, and reduce operative bleeding and surgical injuries.

For #MedStudents , a Foley Catheter is stuck inside the bladder. You are unable to remove it, the usual way. To add to your problem, the 'eye' of the catheter is blocked & the pt is crying in pain bc of distended bladder. How do you remove the 'stuck' Foley Catheter'? (1/5)
1.Cut d balloon channel with scissors, just above d valve. The water in d balloon will slowly drain, & u will be able to pull out the catheter.
2. Gently pass a thin guide wire through the drainage channel.This will displace any blocking encrustations & the water will drain.(2/5)
3. Fill the bladder with saline. Place an ultrasound probe over the lower abdomen. You will see both the full bladder & the balloon of the catheter. Use an IV cannula passed suprapubically very carefully to strike the balloon to burst it& remove the catheter. (3/5)

Yes indeed
Adrenal #tuberculosis is one of the most common causes of #addisons disease
Rifampicin can precipitate a crisis as it increases the metabolism of cortisol and lowers its levels
Infact Rifampicin can unmask pre existing adrenal insufficiency.
#MedTwitter #MBBS
#Tuberculosis of adrenal glands occurs when ususally >90% of the gland is destroyed by TB.
usually bilateral in more than 70%.
Hence treatment of coexistent TB may not reverse the insufficiency.

By popular demand - For any 3rd year #medstudents starting on #InternalMed, here are some tips to be successful on this rotation:

1. Show up early. Pt lists change frequently & management is complex - the more time u have to get to know cases, the more successful u will be. 🧵
2. Read about diagnoses, medications, therapy, and more. The more time you spend educating yourself, the better prepared you are to answer questions on rounds! Resources such as @OnlineMedEd, @UpToDate, @DynaMed_EBSCO, and @VisualDx are a great place to start.
3. Reading about cases outside of rounds will help to solidify information and learn to think more critically about each new case you see. You will think back to prior diagnosed cases each time you encounter a new patient! It is important to build this information foundation.

For any 3rd year #medstudents starting on #surgery, here are some tips I found helpful as to how to be successful on this rotation:

1. Arrive early - on time is 15 min before start. Offer to print the patient list and write new lab values before sign out from the night 🧵 Image
2. Stalk the OR board the night before. Know who’s going and for what reason. If there’s any surgeries you’re unfamiliar with, look up the anatomy the night before.
3. Get to the OR before your patient. Get to know the scrub techs and nurses, give them your gloves and gown if you’re scrubbing in, joke with them and make friends - your experience will be SO much better!

Pterygopalatine fossa🧵- inspired by ?s from med students in neuroanatomy lab & a resident w/ case of perineural tumor spread on same day! #meded #FOAMrad #medtwitter #medstudents #radiology #neurorad #HNrad #radres #neurology #ENT #temporalbone #neurosurgery #neuroanatomy
The PTERYGOPALATINE FOSSA (PPF) is a space deep in the face/skull base, bordered anteriorly by the maxilla (max sinus), posteriorly by the pterygoid base of the sphenoid, and medially by the perpendicular plate of the palatine bone. 2/22
It’s best to think of the PPF as a crossroads/intersection. Think about the roads that lead to and from it, and the cast of characters that pass through.

Some like to simplify/visualize the PPF as a cube or inverted pyramid.

#MedStudents - Need help with your perspective. Quick questions!

1. If you were to match at your home medical school for residency in your specialty, and they offered starting you in residency 2 months Early (May 1st instead of July), how likely would you be to take them up?
2. If you were offered to start residency 9 months Early (Oct M4 yr) at your home medical school, but meant you were LOCKED their program, how likely would you be to take them up?
(ie less tuition, no interview trail, no NRMP, early med school grad = end residency sooner)
3a. [ANSWER IF SAID UNLIKELY TO ? #2] What is the biggest factor you would be unlikely to participate in an early-match / early residency start at your home institution?

As an ethicist who teaches #medstudents about the ethics of organ allocation I'm thrilled that organ transplantation is in the news. But many are troubled by the latest case. Is it right to refuse a heart to the unvaxxed? Who decides? Read on for, I hope, some clarity... A🧵...
First, some background.

#MedStudents, #Residents, #Fellows, and #Research Trainees - I recently had both a resident and fellow ask me how I got involved in research and published when I was a #trainee. I thought I would share my tips and advice in this thread. #MedTwitter #ACGME #MedStudentTwitter
1. Ask yourself👉what you want from this? To pursue research as career? To boost application for #residency #fellowship #employment? To get a recommendation letter? Regardless, aim for #publication (most value). Conference talks are cool, but publications stay on CV forever!
2. Basic science research=⬆️time+lab training vs clinical research. Study designs: RCTs, prospective, retrospective, case reports, review papers. Publishing case reports+review papers are most feasible endeavors during training! Best way to boost #publication numbers.
