Stenosis shown in the most artistic way! This is a colour-enhanced angiogram of the heart showing stenosis (obstruction) in a major coronary artery, one of the arteries that supply the heart with blood. The stenosed section of artery is represented by the break in the dark red vessel at top centre. Arteries become obstructed by the build-up of atheroma, a fatty plaque that develops on the inner arterial wall. The result, coronary artery disease, involves a reduction in blood supply to the heart (ischaemia) which may provoke the chest pains of angina pectoris. In severe cases, the total blockage of an artery leads to the death of heart muscle (myocardial infarction), a heart attack. Credit: Science Photo Library
A bloodless and clean cut on the hand through the epidermis exposes the blood vessels underneath! Now, if blood is red, why are veins blue? Blood is always red. Veins look blue because light has to penetrate the skin to illuminate them, blue and red light (being of different wavelengths) penetrate with different degrees of success. What makes it back to your eye is the blue light. To understand what color our veins appear, we need to think about what happens to different wavelengths of light when they hit our skin, how far they can travel through the skin, and what happens when they get to the veins. The light that hits our skin during the day is white, which is a mixture of all visible wavelengths. To explain why veins look blue, we will look at the red & blue ends of the spectrum. Red light has a long wavelength – it is less likely to be deflected by materials and can more easily travel through the skin and body tissues, reaching up to 5-10mm below the skin, which is where many veins are. When it gets to the veins, the red light is absorbed by the hemoglobin (the protein that makes our blood red). By shining red light on your arm, you will see some red light reflected back, and dark lines where the veins are, as red light is absorbed by the hemoglobin. This phenomenon helps medical personnel find veins to take blood – by shining red or infrared light on the arm. Blue light has a short wavelength (475 nanometres), and is scattered/deflected more easily than red light. Because it’s easily scattered it doesn’t penetrate so far into the skin (only a fraction of a millimetre). When blue light hits the skin, it’s mostly deflected back. If you shine a blue light on your skin, what you see is blue skin, and veins are hard to find. Blue light used in spaces such as public bathrooms to discourage intravenous drug use. Now imagine red and blue light shining on the skin at once, as happens when under white light. You will have a mixture of red, blue and other colors reflected back where there are no veins. Where there are veins, you‘ll see relatively less red, and more blue compared to the surrounding skin. This means veins appear blue compared to the rest of your skin.
Let me catch you, and never let go of you. Sometimes that’s what they need, these newborns need someone to hold on to them, someone to believe they can make it alive, especially those born with distress or preterm. Touch has emerged as an important modality for the facilitation of growth and development. Never let go of your patients as you are the only thing standing between them and death.

Unfortunate case of a young boy who got his hand stuck in a meat grinder! After the hand was removed from the machine, the second, third and fourth finger sustained severe injuries and could not be replanted. Post-op result is seen in the last photo. Although these injuries continue to prove very mutilating, the main goal is maximum restoration of the injured hand, followed by preservation and reconstruction of all viable tissues. Perioperative antibiotics and wound irrigation with antibiotic solution are recommended. Microsurgical technique can be of value but is not always possible.

Autologous skin graft — a network of epidermis!! Mesh skin graft is a type of split-thickness skin graft with the main objective of covering a large skin defect with a small skin patch. Mesh skin graft allows evacuation of blood, plasma as well as drainage of exudate through the holes and reduces likelihood of hematoma, seroma that inhibits graft survival. Overall, these tiny holes, or fenestrations on the skin helps reduce tension and the risk of infection and improve vascularization, and increase the flexibility of the graft so that it can conform to uneven shapes. It has the benefits of high successful engraftment and quick and effective coverage of extensive areas. The healing occurs as the spaces between the mesh fill in with new skin growth. However, severe contracture may follow engraftment and cobble stone shaped scarring poses serious aesthetical problems. Therefore, mesh skin graft is not recommended in high-activity areas of the joint, as well as the face, neck, dorsum of the hand, and calves, etc. that are exposed. The second picture showed a cobble stone appearance 4 months after a mesh skin graft which compromises aesthetic outcome.
This patient got distracted for just a second, and the next thing he knows the nail gun fired a nail right through his thumb. Nail gun-related injuries are a serious occupational risk with potentially lethal outcomes. The nail gun is a mechanical device used in multiple construction and home improvement applications. Powered by either an explosive charge or compressed air, this tool generates enough force to fire a projectile up to 10 cm in length, with velocities as high as 1400 feet per second, into fully stressed concrete. This can be equated to the firing capacity of a .22 caliber handgun or rifle. Most of these workplace injuries occur during routine use and are due to accidental discharge, careless handling of equipment, overpenetration of structures by the projectile, ricochet or shattering of the projectile, and the structural unsoundness of the receiving material. The majority of injuries involve retained nails with trauma limited to the surrounding soft tissues. Direct bony injuries to the digits, hand, and wrists as well as penetrating injuries to the interphalangeal and radiocarpal joints are the commonest. Operative removal of the nail and wound care resulted in successful treatment in this case. Conservative treatment includes nonsurgical nail extraction combined with debridement and a course of antibiotics. This treatment is often sufficient for injuries caused by small smooth nails with minimal contamination and no major structural damage. Surgical exploration and extraction—with surgical debridement and irrigation—is likely to be necessary for more complicated cases especially if symptoms or signs suggest involvement of nerves, arteries or joints. Adults who have sustained injuries deemed to be tetanus prone should receive a ADT booster, if more than 5 years have elapsed since their last dose.
This unique image provides a rare look into a pediatric heart transplant procedure!! The recipient in this case is a 13 month-old patient with congenital heart disease. Congenital malformations are still the most common indication for infant heart transplantation (most common indication is Cardiomyopathy). Infants with serious congenital heart disease generally present in the newborn period with varying degrees of cyanosis, tachypnea, tachycardia, dysrhythmias, poor perfusion, feeding intolerance, and other symptoms of heart failure. An increasing number of congenital lesions are diagnosable by means of fetal ultrasonography. Survival of 20 years after transplantation has been achieved. Most programs now report that more than 70% of their recipients survive at least 5 years. The goal of pediatric heart transplantation is to provide as much of a normal life span for these children as possible.
When you absolutely refuse to give up. This kid is fighting two battles at once!! So, this little warrior is from Brazil. This boy has a very rare lung disease which makes him use this cylinder and tube to be able to breath normally. Until he was 4 years old nobody knew exactly what the disease was and he had to use a mask all the time, until they discovered what it was and now he uses the cylinder with a portable oxygen tank. He can take off the tubes for 30 minutes a day, but even with this he lives as a normal child, helping his mother doing house chores and practicing karate. He is a yellow belt in Shotokan Karate, and in this picture he's participating in a Kata competition (simulated combat), and because of this he's using this red belt, which at least in Shotokan Karate is one of the two colors used in competitions, the other color being blue, to separate the competitors and for the referees to distribute the points easily, using flags of the same colors. Oxygen therapy is used in lung conditions that prevents the lungs from absorbing oxygen, such as in COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and pneumonia. On the other hand, cystic fibrosis is yet another serious heritable disease caused by mutations in the CFTR gene. This gene encodes for a protein involved in transporting salt across cell membranes. Mutations cause the CFTR protein to be made incorrectly, or not at all. Without proper salt transport, thick, sticky mucus builds up in organs. In the lungs, this mucus can make breathing difficult, as well as making patients more susceptible to respiratory infections. One treatment that can help some patients with breathing problems is oxygen therapy.
