Growing a nose on a forehead is a revolutionary approach to surgical reconstruction Man's nose grown on forehead ahead of transplant A Chinese man whose nose was severely disfigured following a car accident get a replacement - in the form of a nose that has been growing on his forehead. This picture shows doctors checking the nose's progress on the forehead of a 22-year-old man named Xiaolian at a hospital in Fuzhou located in the Fujian province. The man reportedly only got basic medical care after he was involved in a car accident last year. He developed an infection that corroded the cartilage in his nose, which made reconstruction surgery impossible. That's when they decided to grow a new one. Doctors placed a tissue expander into the man's forehead that stretched out his skin, fashioning it into the shape of a nose. They then took cartilage from his rib and placed it in his forehead, allowing the skin to grow over the cartilage scaffolding.  #doctor  #medicine  #medical  #health  #medschool  #medstudent  #healthcare  #nurse  #futuredoctor  #healthyliving  #clinic  #dentist  #pharmacist  #study  #doctors  #medstudents  #medicalstudent  #education  #learn  #surgery  #surgeon  #clinical #@medicalpeeps  #reconstructionsurgery

When Dallas Wiens was in his early 20s, he was painting the outside of a church when his head hit a high-voltage wire. Most of his face was burned off on contact; what was left was mostly destroyed through multiple surgeries to save his life. For two years, he lived without a face, with just a small opening where his mouth had once been. Then he qualified for a full facial transplant at Brigham & Women's Hospital — the first such surgery in the country. Now, after his 15-hour transplant, follow-up surgeries, and years of rehabilitation, Wiens has a full, rich life again. Severe electrical burns like Wiens suffered can lead to a loss of facial function and even facial features. Chemical burns, animal attacks, cancer, dog bites, and other terrifying accidents can leave people similarly disfigured. Until recently, there was little recourse beyond a series of partial reconstructions that would leave severe scars and deformities. Yet facial transplantation remains rare, in part because it is still very controversial. Despite the procedure's successes, there have been serious complications. There have also been some deaths due to post-surgery complications. . @medicalpeeps  #doctor  #medicine  #medical  #health  #anatomy  #medschool  #medstudent  #healthcare  #nurse  #futuredoctor  #healthyliving  #clinic  #dentist#@medicalpeeps  #pharmacist  #scientist  #university  #learning  #healthy  #science  #research  #motivation  #study  #doctors  #medstudents  #medicalstudent  #clinical  #education  #learn  #plasticsurgery#@medicalpeeps

Middle aged Caucasian female with a BMI between 62-65. With her chronic obesity she had developed a pannus that hung down to her knees. She suffered from repeat panniculitis (inflammation of the subcutaneous fat or adipose tissue) that was refractory to conservative management and eventually developed a gangrenous infection. This required immediate surgical intervention. . . . . . @medicalpeeps  #doctor  #medicine  #medical  #health  #anatomy  #medschool  #medstudent  #healthcare  #nurse  #futuredoctor  #healthyliving  #clinic  #dentist#@medicalpeeps  #pharmacist  #scientist  #university  #learning  #healthy  #science  #research  #motivation  #study  #doctors  #medstudents  #medicalstudent  #clinical  #education  #plasticsurgery  #learn#@medicalpeeps

Doctors found a calcified fetus of 30 years old in the uterus of a woman aged 73 years old!! These 3D CT scans belong to an Algerian women with a fetus that was inside her for over 30 years! This extremely rare phenomenon is called Lithopedion, which means "stone baby". It occurs most commonly when the fetus dies during an abdominal pregnancy, and has been retained by the mother. That fetus was too big to be reabsorbed by the body, and subsequently calcified on the outside as part of a maternal foreign body reaction, shielding the mother's body from the dead tissue of the fetus and preventing infection. It is not unusual for a stone baby to remain undiagnosed for decades.. . . . . . @medicalpeeps  #doctor  #medicine  #medical  #health  #anatomy  #medschool  #medstudent  #healthcare  #nurse  #futuredoctor  #healthyliving  #dentist#@medicalpeeps  #pharmacist  #scientist  #university  #learning  #healthy  #science  #research  #motivation  #study  #doctors  #medstudents  #medicalstudent  #clinical  #education  #lithopedion  #learn#@medicalpeeps

A patella fracture is an injury to the kneecap. The kneecap is one of three bones that make up the knee joint. It is coated with cartilage on its undersurface and is important in providing strength of extension of the knee joint. Patella fractures should be seen in the emergency room. X-rays will determine the type of fracture and the amount of displacement (separation) of the fracture. When surgery is necessary, an incision is made over the front of the knee joint. The fractured ends of bone are realigned and held in place with some combination of pins, screws and wires. In some cases, a portion of the patella can simply be removed, but this is usually done for smaller fracture fragments.. . . . . . @medicalpeeps  #doctor  #medicine  #medical  #health  #anatomy  #medschool  #medstudent  #healthcare  #nurse  #futuredoctor  #healthyliving  #clinic  #dentist#@medicalpeeps  #pharmacist  #scientist  #university  #learning  #healthy  #science  #research  #motivation  #study  #doctors  #medstudents  #medicalstudent  #clinical  #education  #learn#@medicalpeeps

The human papilloma virus vaccine 👉is a vaccination for cancer prevention. The HPV vaccine prevents cervical cancer, as well as other cancers including cancer of the oropharynx (back of the throat), anal cancer, penile cancer in men, and vaginal and vulvar cancer in women. In addition to cancer prevention, the HPV vaccine also prevents infection with HPV types that cause genital warts in both women and men. Physicians can screen for cervical cancer in women. There are no recommended cancer screening tests for the other types of cancers caused by HPV infections. These cancers may not be detected until they have already caused health problems. What is HPV? Human papilloma virus is a virus; infection from HPV usually comes from sexual contact. Most people will be infected with HPV at some point in their life. Most infections go away on their own and do not lead to serious health problems. However, thousands of people every year have health problems from HPV. Every year in the United States, more than 30 000 women and men are diagnosed as having a cancer caused by HPV infection. Current HPV Vaccine Recommendations It is recommended that the HPV routine vaccination be given starting at age 11 or 12 years. The vaccination series can be started as young as age 9 years, and vaccination is recommended through age 26 years for women and through age 21 years for men. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends 2 doses of HPV vaccine for people starting the vaccination series before their 15th birthday. The 2 doses should be given 6 to 12 months apart. For people starting the vaccination series after their 15th birthday, a 3-dose schedule is recommended. The second dose should be given 1 to 2 months after the first dose, and the third dose is given 6 months after the second dose.. . @medicalpeeps  #doctor  #medicine  #medical  #health  #anatomy  #medschool  #medstudent  #healthcare  #nurse  #futuredoctor  #healthyliving  #clinic  #dentist#@medicalpeeps  #pharmacist  #scientist  #university  #learning  #healthy  #science  #research  #motivation  #study  #doctors  #medstudents  #medicalstudent  #clinical  #education  #learn#@medicalpeeps

Trampoline accident leaving patient with a dislocated ankle! . Here is his story: "So I decided to try a trampoline park that opened recently in my city. In retrospect, this was a bad idea, since I'm almost 30 and also clumsy. I was trying to get off a trampoline and landed wrong, resulting in a dislocated ankle. The ambulance arrived quickly and they gave me some really good drugs (ketamine, among others) before they put it back into place (said they needed their two strongest guys). Fortunately, it didn't break through the skin. No major fractures, and the only surgery I might need is some minor arthroscopic surgery to remove some potential bone fragments from the joint. Looking at 6-8 weeks. Could've been a lot worse, but in sum, I can't recommend it." . The typical sequence of events in an ankle dislocation would usually involve an urgent trip to the emergency room for x-rays, and then a physician will “reduce” the ankle. This means they will set the alignment back to normal. Surgery is often needed. After setting the dislocated ankle back in place there will be a period of immobilization in a cast or boot that lasts several weeks. This is followed by gradual increases in weight bearing, motion, and strength.. . @medicalpeeps  #dislocatedankle  #doctor  #medicine  #medical  #health  #medschool  #medstudent  #healthcare  #nurse  #futuredoctor  #healthyliving  #clinic  #dentist #@medicalpeeps  #pharmacist  #success  #scientist  #university  #learning  #healthy  #science  #research  #motivation  #study  #doctors  #medstudents  #medicalstudent  #clinical  #education  #learn#@medicalpeeps

26-year old face transplant patient reveals new face! He suffered a self-inflicted gunshot to the face in 2016 in a suicide attempt and the damage left him missing most of his lower jaw, nose and all of his teeth except one. He said: “I am so grateful to have a face transplant because it gives me a second chance at life. Even though I’m still recovering and gaining back sensation and mobility, mostly with my lips, I’m still very happy with the results. I have a nose, and a mouth so I’m able to smile, to speak and eat solid foods again.” The procedure was led by a team of more than 100 medical professionals to complete the operation and required the use of 3D computer surgical planning and a 3D printed mask of the donor’s face. The patient underwent a 25-hour operation that included transplanting and reconstructing the upper and lower jaw bones, including all 32 teeth and gums, the roof of the mouth, the lower eyelids and cheeks, and the nose and sections of the nasal passages. . . @medicalpeeps  #medicalpeeps  #doctor  #medicine  #medical  #health  #medschool  #medstudent  #healthcare  #nurse  #futuredoctor  #healthyliving  #clinic  #dentist #@medicalpeeps  #pharmacist  #success  #scientist  #university  #learning  #healthy  #science  #research  #motivation  #study  #doctors  #medstudents  #medicalstudent  #clinical  #education @medicalpeepsfacetransplant
