DVT and pulmonary embolisms

This 3D medical animation shows a blood clot forming in a lower leg vein, creating a deep vein thrombosis, or DVT. When the thrombus breaks free of the valve, it is called an embolus, and travels toward the heart and lungs. The animation ends by showing the embolus lodging in the lung tissue forming a life-threatening pulmonary embolism (PE).

Layered Learning

This is a work booklet, which helps students gain or reinforce knowledge of the anatomy of the posterior lower leg. Using multi-sensory and artistic techniques the students are guided through creating their own three-dimensional, layered anatomical paper model. This technique can be applied to any anatomical structure, along with physiological or pathological processes, and transformed into learning work booklets for students.

A man with tingling fingers

A 73 year old man with a three month history of bilateral persistent tingling in the index and middle fingers presented to his general practitioner. He was referred for an injection for suspected carpal tunnel syndrome. When he attended, as well as the tingling sensation, he described loss of fine motor function in his hands, with altered sensation in both legs and his inner thighs. Examination at this time showed no objective sensory loss in either hand. Phalen’s test and Tinel’s test were both negative. His upper limb tendon reflexes were normal.

A weak leg

A 50 year old right handed man presented with weakness of his right leg and arm of two months’ duration. The symptoms had come on over several days, during which he described a “dead leg” and he noticed his foot dragging while walking. On examination he had right lower limb pyramidal type distal weakness with a foot drop, power was graded at 4/5, and he had an upgoing plantar reflex. A computed tomogram of the brain showed a left parietal lesion with surrounding oedema but no midline shift, so contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging was undertaken (figs 1⇓ and 2⇓). Analysis of the cerebrospinal fluid showed raised protein with normal cell counts, normal angiotensin converting enzyme values, oligoclonal bands, IgG of 185 mg/L (normal value <40), and a negative viral polymerase chain reaction. Serum immunoglobulins and vitamin B12 values were normal; viral antibodies and antibodies for spirochetes were negative. He had no history of a neurological deficit.

A woman with rapidly progressive weakness and sensory loss

A 61 year old woman presented to the accident and emergency department with progressive weakness of the lower limbs and a feeling of her legs being “frozen” over the preceding four days. Ten days earlier, she had contracted a flu-like illness and was diagnosed and treated with oseltamivir (Tamiflu) for presumed swine flu. She was later found to be influenza A/H1N1 seropositive on the reference laboratory haemagglutination assay. Her medical history included cervical spondylosis for which she had decompressive laminectomy (C4-7) in 1992 and a Cloward’s discectomy with bone graft and fusion of C5-7 in 1996.

An adolescent athlete with groin pain

A 14 year old boy felt a mild aching discomfort in his left groin while playing rugby but still continued to play. He subsequently tackled an opponent and developed a severe pain of sudden onset in the left upper thigh and groin. A “snapping” sound was heard and he fell to the ground. He was unable to bear weight on the left leg and appeared pale, clammy, and nauseated. His pitch-side vital observations were normal and he was offered combined gaseous nitrous oxide and oxygen for pain relief. Ice was applied to the area of maximum discomfort and he was accompanied to the emergency department in an ambulance. At the emergency department he was advised that he had probably “strained” a muscle and was given conservative advice. He was discharged with crutches and analgesia.
