Femoral Nerve Block – A Guide for Medial Students and Junior Doctors.

I completed this article in collaboration with a senor registrar whilst studying as an undergraduate medical student in Dundee. This article outlines the proposed introduction of a technique that employs ultrasound to visualise the femoral nerve whilst performing a femoral nerve block. This procedure is performed on patients in both the emergency dept and surgical theatres. Traditionally this procedure has been performed using a 'blind technique' which has an increased association with side effects including inadvertent damage to local structures and systemic toxicity related to local anaesthetic. In the article we give a brief outline of both the the traditional and ultrasound guided techniques and allow readers to understand the benefits of using the proposed technique. We believe that this article will be of great interest to senior medical student and junior doctors who are interested in careers in emergency medicine and anaesthesia. This

Designer Babies - Physiology and Ethics

An essay I wrote for my course, with which I received an Honours grade (75%). I have an interest in Medical Ethics, and this essay discusses the possible physiology and ethics surrounding the controversial topic. **Introduction** (taken from the essay): My topic is designer babies. A designer baby is defined by the Oxford Dictionary of English as, “a baby whose genetic make-up has been selected in order to eradicate a particular defect, or to ensure that a particular gene is present” (1). In this essay, I shall be exploring the arguments and ideas surrounding the selection of a baby’s genes, which in modern times has become a highly controversial subject. This essay will start by describing the methods by which designer babies may be produced, namely pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) and pro-nuclear transfer, also coined the ‘three-parent baby’ by some (2). Once these procedures have been presented, ethical considerations forming both sides of the debate will be discussed. Whilst the typical argument used is ‘autonomy vs. playing god’, other ideas include whether such procedures will have a drastic effect on the future, and change the world as we know it, as suggested in the science-fiction film Gattaca (3). The ‘nature vs. nurture’ debate is also described: whether we are defined by our genes as shown in Gattaca, or if the environmental influence we are subjected to can cause our genotype to be negligible, i.e. our genes have no impact on our traits; personality, looks etc. The expectations placed upon our offspring; the definition of disease and disability; the fear of the rate of medical development – will all be discussed in this essay. The conclusion will summarise the arguments of both sides, and will attempt to answer the following question: should we be allowed to design our babies?

Two Videos Showing Fluoroscopy and Animation of the TAVI Procedure

Fluoroscopy with Videography Showing Deployment of the Valve: The valve is deployed during rapid right ventricular pacing. The crimped valve and support frame are expanded with underlying balloon inflation. Also seen are the transesophageal echocardiography probe and the temporary right ventricular pacing lead. Animation of the Complete Transfemoral Transcatheter Aortic-Valve Implantation (TAVI) Procedure: The procedure for transfemoral TAVI involves insertion of the sheath through the femoral artery, retrograde balloon aortic valvuloplasty, advancement of the TAVI system across the aortic valve, and subsequent deployment of the valve and support frame.

NEJM Procedure: Deployment of an Endovascular Graft in an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

Aneurysm repair is a mechanical solution to the problem of progressive expansion of abdominal aortic aneurysm and the risk of rupture. Although open surgical repair, which has been the established approach, is very effective, it carries substantial risks from the extensive surgical procedure. Endovascular repair was developed to reduce the risks associated with open surgery and to provide a treatment option for patients who are not deemed to be surgical candidates.

What is the Whipple Procedure?

In this video, Washington University surgeon William Hawkins, MD, explains the Whipple procedure, which is performed to remove cancer from the head of the pancreas. Hawkins and his colleagues complete about 125 Whipples a year, making the Siteman Cancer Center one of the highest-volume centers for this type of surgery nationwide. These surgeons pioneered a modification to the Whipple procedure that has resulted in the lowest fistula rate any large group (1.5 percent compared to 15 percent).
