New blog post up about Hepatitis C 💉
I dropped my @fitbit chargeHR 2 today and someone has taken it. I know so because they've uncoupled it from my phone. At first I was annoyed at myself. Then I was annoyed at them. And then I realised that I'd just written a blog post on hep C. Hep C is a virus that has a particularly high prevalence in our area of the UK compared to other parts. That's because it's spread by blood contact and there's a high proportion of IV drug use here. And that means a disadvantaged community, poverty and low education levels 🙍🏻
I, however, am privileged enough to be able to come home and buy another one. So whilst I'm not happy I've lost an expensive and much loved piece of kit, and yes, it smarts to be on the receiving end of people not being honest.... I should really be far less sore about it because I'm really very lucky. 👩🏻⚕️🍀

This is a recent intraoperative image of Dr. Kortbus performing a revision of another surgeon's work that happened 5 years ago.
On the bottom of the image through this zero degree 4 mm Hopkins style scope is a back biting forceps palpating the natural left maxillary os of ipsilateral sinus hypoplasia.
You can see an accessory ostium due to Bubble formation at the anterior portion of the uncinate process which appears completely intact. This was a revision surgery and in the end, the patient received uncinectomy and an antrostomy connecting these two to prevent the #recirculation that she's been having for 5 years.
Cool #picture and interesting variant #anatomy but the moral of the story is get the surgery done right the first time!
The answer to this week's #WoundWednesdays is B! 😊 Semi occlusive dressings allow water and gas to pass through them but prevent wounds from drying out by inhibiting the transmission of water vapour from the wound surface to the atmosphere. A dressing that transmits moisture vapour at a rate lower than the rate of production of moisture by the underlying tissues creates a moist wound environment.
