A tiny little brain!
This isn't a human brain but nevertheless it shows that we all own the very same fragile and mysteriously perfect organ. 
An incredible pattern-matching machine, with billions of neurons, each connecting a thousand other neurons, it transfers and translates every though into action, stores every memory we've ever created, gives curiosity, yet still remains one of the biggest unsolved mysteries.

Day 127
.
Back to the start
.
The last time I was in the costa coffee in Southmead hospital I was getting some funny looks. It might have been because I ordered whipped cream on an americano but more likely because I was lying in the cafe in an ICU bed and still hooked up to quite a few wires. I had been wheeled out for a change of scenery by a couple of the senior nurses and it seemed to draw quite a bit of attention. This time, no attention, no one bats and eyelid at a crutch in a hospital, I was normal, and it felt great.
.
I was back for my outpatient appointment with 'the' surgeon. I'll never forget Mr Baruas face, peering down at me, reading me my rights that night before the lights went out. I've spent a lot of time wondering what I would say to him when I saw him again. Well the truth is to start with I didn't say much. What do you say to someone you don't really know but in the space of three hours changed your life forever...? He broke the ice by simply smiling and saying, 'well I've got to be honest, I didn't expect this!' I managed to refrain from the man hug or a fist bump and did the next thing any bloke would do; ask about the operation and if he could enlighten me on any gory details. There was a few that I will spare you but basically it all went to plan. He confirmed that during the operation he found a fragment of disk which had lodged itself in the left hand side of my spinal cord. This is synonymous with the symptoms I have been showing and in a way it's nice to have it confirmed.
.
Seeing his reaction today really made me realise just how lucky I got and how close I was to this being a completely different story. Neil if your reading this I couldn't really articulate it earlier but thank you.... thank you for making the decision to operate immediately, thank you for being so good at your job and most of all thank you for giving me a fighting chance. 👊
.
Four months ago, lying in intensive care, I promised myself that I would walk back in here one day. Today, thanks to some amazing people, a bit of graft and a lot of luck I was able to keep that promise.✌️

Книга о медицинском опыте известного нейрохирурга. Даже боюсь представить насколько тяжело написать такую книгу. Вспоминать специально забытые ошибки, которые привели к человеческой смерти или тяжёлой инвалидности.
.

Книга написана в очень динамичном и живом стиле. Охвачен достаточно длинный период медицины до и во время эры компьютерной томографии. О работе, которая изменилась с приходом юристов.
.

Но самый главный вопрос всей книги, который задаёт любой нейрохирург себе: стоит ли рисковать жизнью пациента, его личностью, способностью мыслить? Либо просто "НЕ НАВРЕДИ" .
.

Кто планирует быть нейрохирургом данная книга обязательна к прочтению! .

Tragedy for this patient and family. Education for emergency medical personnel. What we learn from the ones we can't save, help us save the next life. The ever expanding knowledge base we all accumulate ultimately benefits every patient that follows. We learned from my last few posts is that this injury probably is not going to be compatible with a good outcome, and in fact this patient did not survive this injury. This CT scan is another example of the devastation a high velocity projectile does to the human skull and brain. Those white dots along the trajectory are bits of skull and bullet fragments. The high electron density at the back of the skull is the metal bullet. Maybe this tragedy will end in organ donation and be lifesaving for many people:
Eight vital organs can be donated: heart, kidneys (2), pancreas, lungs (2), liver, and intestines. ...
Tissue: cornea, skin, heart valves, bone, blood vessels, and connective tissue.
Bone marrow and stem cells, peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC)... thanks for sharing @rayd0tcom -----------------------------------

Arachnoid cyst. This patient presented with frequent headaches & seizures. MRI demonstrated an arachnoid cyst that measured 12.3 by 16.5 by 7.9 cm compressing on the right cerebral hemisphere. An arachnoid cyst is a congenital malformation filled with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Given the size of the cyst and symptoms, the patient underwent craniotomy for fenestration cyst.

The Corpus Callosum:
Corpus callosum is Latin word for "tough body", and it is a wide, flat bundle of neural fibers beneath the cortex in the eutherian brain at the longitudinal fissure. It connects the left and right cerebral hemispheres and facilitates interhemispheric communication. It is the largest white matter structure in the brain, consisting of 200–250 million contralateral axonal projections.

El tratamiento quirúrgico de los aneurismas cerebrales es un gran desafío para los neurocirujanos. A pesar de los grandes avances en el diagnóstico y tratamiento, la tasa de morbimortalidad es alta.

A mai ügyeletes ház ajánlata mindazok számára, akik igyekeznek elkerülni az éjszakai idegsebész-menüt: csúszásmentes járólapon és/vagy adekvátan rögzített szőnyegen való közlekedés, komótos nagyira való feszült figyelem -mosdó közelében is-, bukósisak viselése minden fedetlen háztáji tevékenység esetén, különösen megfelelően titrált alkoholmennyiségek belső elbírálása közepette. Ha ezek szigorú betartása ellenére valaki mégis használná a fejét. hamarosan találkozhatunk! 😷💉😉 #dontuseyourhead #warning #hospitalduty #hospitallife #neurosurgery #neurosurgeon #nightshift
