The long 10 months of clinical rotations have finally come to a close. I have learned more in this short time than I ever imagined, and am so thankful for the experience!

I have happily accepted a full-time position at Barnes Jewish Hospital as their newest Pathologists' Assistant. You just can't get rid of me, BJH! #pathassist #pathologistsassistant #thismastersdegreeaboutkilledme

This little lady had her first trip to the Milwaukee Public Museum today. She's wearing the custom onsie my students had made for her. It says, β€œStraight outta mesenchyme." #babygeek #pathassist #boneformation #babyvincenza

Melanoma in a tonsil! This actually spread through the larynx up to the palatine tonsil. The patient does not want to have a laryngectomy, so the surgeons removed the tonsillar mass, and are treating the patient with radiation. Normally the tonsils are smooth, pink, and glistening. 😯

So after what was supposed to be a simple surgery to correct my enophthalmos (wonky eyes) by using two bone grafts from my head to push my left eyeball forward I was sent home Friday. But there was a problem: a nurse in the ward never sent me for a CT scan when she should have, I was discharged and went home but my eye continued to balloon. My surgeon happened to look at the CT scan on his day off (Sat) as it had been taken too late and called me in a panic to say I had increased intra-cranial and intra-ocular pressure. I had to go back into hospital Sunday morning for emergency surgery and am just being released now. This pic isn't my eye but you can see the oedema (excess fluid) on the eyeball which I had and is now going down, phew! I'm so lucky I don't have to have a 3rd surgery and wanted to thank everyone who has been sending lovely messages and following my story ❀ - I hope it helps others with Parry Romberg Syndrome and similar conditions and hope people find this account - which looks at both sides of pathology; both practitioner and patient - useful

Gangrenous above the knee amputation specimen

Basal cell carcinoma of the eyelid that spread into the eye. This was an orbital exenteration specimen, including the eye, the skin and soft tissue surrounding the eye, and the lateral portion of the ethmoid and nasal bones. In the first picture you see cross sections of the eye. The tan area surrounding the anterior portion of the eye (on the right hand side of the picture) is all tumor extending from the eyelid. In the second picture (which is pretty blurry - sorry!) you can see the lens of the eye which is almost entirely blocked by tumor. The patient's eyelids had fused shut and then involuted so he could no longer see at all.

24yo in MVA .... fractured mandible, maxilla, and orbit. The eye had to be removed because of severe hemorrhage and the face had to be reconstructed with metal plates and screws. Sad story but amazing what surgeons can do! ☹️

Continuação do post anterior.... @pathassist - Since there was some confusion about "whole jaw" vs. a portion of it, we decided to share a second picture of the same specimen (see prior post) from a different angle. This is the right side of the jaw, with the anterior aspect near the gloved hand. The teeth and the lesion within the gumline are more visible from this angle, and allows better inspection of the buccal and lingual mucosal margins. Many of the skin and soft tissue margins were submitted for "frozen sections" while the operation was underway. For those that don't know, a "frozen section" is a special, rapid process done for analysis on tissues while the patient remains on the operating table, and the results help guide the surgeons as to the extent of tissue that needs to be taken so that as much of the tumor can be removed as possible. PA's assist in this process at multiple steps, so that the analysis can be done quickly and accurately to assist the medical team in the patient's care. If you have further questions, feel free to ask and we will do our best to answer (serious and respectful) questions! #cancer #pathassist #pathology #mouth #jaw #frozensections - #loucosporodonto

Lição de hoje: espécimes de mandibulectomia e cÒncer da cavidade oral. 😡😷
Via @pathassist
Today's lesson: mandibulectomy specimens and cancer of the oral cavity. Chewing tobacco can lead to some very unpleasant side effects, kids. This photograph shows a partial mandibulectomy specimen for Squamous Cell Carcinoma. And yes, for the untrained eye, you're seeing an indentation (i.e.: the cancerous lesion) at the level of the right jawline that involves the skin, complete with a removal of part of the underlying jawbone (mandible) with some intact teeth. Although SCC's caused by tobacco use are not the only reason we see mandible specimens in Pathology, it's a proven fact that patients with a long history of chewing tobacco have been shown to be at a higher risk for developing SCC of the floor of the mouth, tongue, and oral cavity. Cases like this one are assessed by the PA and Pathologist for margins along the skin, soft tissue, mucosal surfaces (along the gumline), and at both the ends of the bone, as well as looking at microscopic sections of the tumor itself. Patients often also have multiple levels of lymph nodes removed from their neck, which are also assessed for staging to help determine the patient's subsequent treatment plan. ...Before it becomes the most asked question: "yes", this patient IS alive; More than likely, this surgery was not the last one they will have, as reconstruction after such an extensive removal can often take multiple surgeries. #oralcancer #pathology #lifeofaPA #pathassist #mandible #scc #dontchewtobacco #cancer - #loucosporodonto

This is something I saw way too often in the summertime while working in pathology at a level 1 trauma center.

1. Fireworks are dynamite. The word firework is just a fancy name for a stick of dynamite with a pretty sticker on it.

2. The word FIRE is in firework.
Nuff said.

3. Most of these injuries occur in men. Most of these injuries occur in intoxicated people. So if you are at a BBQ, you are a dude, and you are drunk (or high)- stay far, far away from fireworks! Leave it to the professionals.
This is a hand.
Or what's left of it!
Young boy, under 21 years with a severe firework injury. This particular firework is called the "Bin Laden" and caused a severe blast injury that was not able to be surgically repaired to save the hand.
He is still alive luckily and had a consult with psychiatry after his surgery.
Learning lesson: it's just not worth the risk. Go watch a professional firework display and save your fingers, your hands and possibly your life!

Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) in a 23(ish) week fetus. You can see the left and right ventricles opened up here as well as the aorta and pulmonary trunk. The wall between the two ventricles, the interventricular septum, has a hole in it. The probe is going through the hole. This means that the deoxygenated blood and oxygenated blood get mixed, making the heart and lungs work harder. Many times this is not diagnosed if the hole is small. If it's a larger hole the patient may need surgery to have it closed. Unfortunately in this particular case, the fetus had multiple other congenital defects that were not compatible with life.

Smoothies & Anatomy πŸ’€πŸ’š _______________________________________________________ Sticking to my summer study list I have started to review my anatomy! As a Pathologists Assistant I took advanced courses in anatomy including a full year of cadaveric dissection in addition to the wet lab at medical school. Despite this I find I still have to review structures constantly, ESPECIALLY vessels and nerves to stay sharp! πŸ’€_______________________________________________________ What ways have you found helpful to learn anatomy? πŸ“šπŸ€“ _______________________________________________________ #anatomy #school #nerves #vessels #medschool #medstudent #studygram #study #vegan #smoothie #wellness #womeninmedicine #futureMD #pathassist #hospital #medicine #doctor #cadaver #morgue #school #summerschool #md #forensics #medstudentproblems

HELP: I need new scrubs! πŸ₯. For my elective in Forensic Medicine I am required to rep my own scrubs! With so many Insta companies to choose from which brand is your favourite? πŸ‘–πŸ‘• _______________________________________________________ I clearly need an update from my old OR greens! πŸ’š______________________________________________________ Also pictured here is my massive collection of criminal law textbooks! In order to be an expert in Forensic Medicine you need to master medicine and law! I have therefore taken many many many courses in criminal law to supplement my medical training. This will help me to be a better prepared expert witness when I give testimony in court πŸ’€_______________________________________________________ #clinic #hospital #surgery #resident #paschool #pathassist #noscrubs #newscrubs #scrublife #adayinscrubs #whitecoat #nursesweek #nursing #nursingschool #nurse #dentist #dentistry #futureMD #doctor #futuredoctor #womeninscience #womeninmedicine #medschool #medicalschool #likeforlike #l4l #like4like #medstudent #medicalstudent #medicine

Placentas are a weird organ
I always think:
1. I used to live in this disgusting organ
2. I have made and expelled 3 of these disgusting organs in my life
3. These disgusting organs can be seen displayed in my homeπŸ€“

People think it's weird I kept my kids placentas and put them on display
Let me repeat: I MADE AN ORGAN
