Incarcerated Hernia
This man ignored his hernia for 3 years; came to us
his small intestines already gangrenous; we resected
5 feet from the ileum including the ileo-cecal junction
then performed ileo-ascending colon anastomosis.
This was the first time I saw an incarcerated hernia
with an unsavable bowel.

Anes Xmas Party: Matira Matibay

Can you believe these pictures were taken using my phone!? Nice huh :-) Anyway, today I attended the East Avenue Medical Center Department of Anesthesia Christmas Party : Matira Matibay Challenge at the La Mesa Eco Park. It was fun even if I had to go home by lunch time. Their program lasts the whole day but I'm tired (yes even if I just slept during duty) because I was from-duty. The eco-park is great! I'd love to go back there just to relax and see trees! Please click the link below to see more beautiful pictures.
