Hi guys...sorry for the inactivity! I'm in the heart of finals season and have been stressed with studying. I'll be all finished next week, so I should be back to a regular schedule then! Nevertheless, I hope you guys like tonight's post!



Today's case is unfortunately not a traumatic one; however, it's still pretty fascinating! What you see is a patient who underwent a prior fasciotomy, with a vesselloop, due to acute compartment syndrome. The picture was taken at readmittance, after she bumped her leg on a table, and had to start post surgery healing all over. She was on anticoagulants, which definitely contributed to this outcome. Compartment syndrome is a condition where a buildup of pressure results from edema or internal bleeding. A drain was placed in the area to drain the excess blood that accumulated from the bump!

Patient presented to our clinic with pain to the outside of their forefoot- no open wounds and no trauma. We got an X-ray which was negative for a fracture to the 5th metatarsal head but appeared to show fragments of bone not normally present to the 5th metatarsal head region. We then ordered a MRI which was not definitive for any infection or tumor. Patient is in constant pain and has a history of cancer. Next step is we are performing a biopsy to rule out any possible malignancy such as a bone tumor. Will update this post once we completed over the next 2 weeks! Happy early Memorial Day weekend!

Thanks to everyone who came out to @museumgamenight last night! We love this group reenactment of our beloved Amputation painting. #thursdaymotivation #imsschicago #chicago #museum #amputation #medicine #surgery #history

Today I was in charge of monitoring this little guy with only my eyes and ears while the Dr amputated his broken leg. His heart stopped during surgery, so we performed CPR to help start his heart back up. He is now resting and recovering in his cage while I'm contemplating on adopting him lol #Guineapig #amputation #vettech

A very special shout out & #tbt to this video @jennbrooks124 sent my mama of me after @nycscr took me into their rescue.. this was right after my amputation where I actually went into cardiac arrest on the surgery table and died. Luckily the amazing doctors/techs didn't give up on me and fought to bring me back. I sure am a lucky boy to have been found by the right people and got to spend my time healing at @camp.scr with my amazing foster mom 💕 it has & will continue to be a long road with more obstacles to overcome but we are so thankful for everyone at SCR for everything they do to help dogs like me. They never gave up on even when my heart didn't have the strength to go on. They showed me what love is and that not all humans were out to hurt me. My mama and I have nothing but love for everyone at SCR and to all the other rescue/shelter workers/volunteers for all of their hard work and dedication to us pups that normally wouldn't be given a second chance. Without you all we wouldn't be where we are today. We are forever thankful & grateful for each & every one of you. Sending lots of love, positive vibes, & slobbery dragon kisses to all of you. We love you all ❤️❤️❤️ •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #adoptdontshop #rescuedismyfavoritebreed #rescuedog #adoptadog #savealife #dontbullymybreed #rescuedogsofinstagram #amputation #tripawd #secondchance #secondchancerescue #secondchancerescuenyc #campscr #pitbullsofinstagram #pitbulladvocate #pitbullrescue #tripawdsofinstagram #pitbulllove

I absolutely am so tired of cones. I've already broken 5. You'd think they'd learn.

MOM NOTE:
The final decision was made yesterday to amputate 3/4 of Linus' tail. After 3 weeks of home healing with vet advice & 3 weeks of medical healing, the wound in his tail became resistant to antibiotics. He was in a lot of pain, restless, shakey, on a lot of medication, and the tissue was so damaged it became necrotic. His tail developed an odor overnight & by the morning he was showing other signs of sepsis. They only planned to remove a small portion of the tail where the infection was evident, but upon my reasoning (to which the vet agreed without hesitation) I asked to amputate the better part of his tail. My concerns were only his spine & his health, although they cosmetically made it into a cute little weimaraner tail. The vet came in on his day off to perform the surgery & while they initially told me I wouldn't get him back for 36hrs, I was able to take him home the same day. I cannot tell you the relief I felt to get him back, and to see that within a few hours after the anesthesia wore off I had my lively boy back. He hadn't been himself in weeks. He doesn't care its gone, he didn't care about his tail before it became infected. I'm blessed the universe put me in touch with such an amazing veterinary team, they absolutely were at my fingertips through the whole thing. I couldn't be happier to just have my happy puppy back. .

Gas gangrene with osteomyelitis 4th and 5th metatarsals. Initial open partial 4th and 5th ray amputations with vac veraflow improved overall infection. Performed delayed primarily closure by filleted 4th digit skin rotational flap closure on postop day 3. Patient was seen postop wound closure on day 7 and sent home with an optimistic prognosis. Returned to clinic 6 days later, walking on his splint, with a pack of cigarettes in his chest shirt pocket (not even trying to hide it). #amputation #orthopedics #orthopedicsurgery #canleadahorsetowater #diabetes #smoking #podiatricsurgery #podiatry #ftsmith #foothealthcenterfortsmith #savealimbsavealife

46 year old female with polycystic kidney disease, on hemodialysis for 7 years. She suffered an ankle fracture 20 years ago and had revision ankle fusion 4 years ago. She states that it has never stopped hurting and that she has recurrent abscesses near the lateral malleolus that would improve with antibiotics. She has had 4 rounds of oral antibiotics of differing lengths of time. I informed the patient that she likely has a septic joint with chronic osteomyelitis. I&D of abscess with bone biopsy confirmed chronic osteomyelitis. Patient was given the option of hardware removal with antibiotic spacer, hyperbaric O2, IV antibiotics followed by attempted septic fusion using ex-fix (3-6 month recovery). Patient chose BKA given her comorbidities and high likelihood of failure. She stated, "I'm tired of my ankle ruling my life." Sometimes an amputation really is the best option. #cantsavethemall #orthopedics #podiatricsurgery #podiatry #foothealthcenterfortsmith #amputation #toughdays #toughconversations

"Anything I was doing before, I still have confidence that I can do it"

Alieo is a 52-year old police officer who had to have his leg amputated after an accident on-duty. Here, he speaks about the life-changing difference a prosthetic leg from Legs4Africa has made to allow him to continue his livelihood and support his family.

Not too bad considering I wasn't sure any of it would live. Thanks for keeping a positive attitude and having faith in my suturing skills :) @Eddie_wells1969 . #suture #ear #dogbite #repair #er #doc #erlife #emergency #amputation #medicine #itlives #34stitches

- Mon accident , mon handicap 🚑

Aujourd'hui cela fait deux ans que j'ai eu un grave accident de travail, deux ans que je vis avec un handicap. Le subconscient est impressionnant, meme sans y penser mon corps m'a rappeler cette date fatidique en me faisant mal dormir cette nuit et m'a remis les douleurs des membres fantômes 😭
Lundi je passe au tribunal pour cette affaire qui dure depuis 2 ans.. j'angoisse , j'ai peur de les revoirs , peur que ca se passe mal .. vivement la fin de ce mois ci et vivement juin pour un meilleur mois !
Je ne sais pas si je laisserai la photo de ma main.. j'ai du mal à y voir les regards poser dessus !
