THE ANATOMICAL SNUFFBOX (also known as the radial fossa or tabatière anatomique), is a triangular depression found on the radial side of the wrist (lateral aspect of the dorsum of the hand). It is formed between tendons that go to the thumb (located at the level of the carpal bones) and best seen when the thumb is abducted and/or extended.
In the past, this depression was used to hold snuff (ground tobacco) before inhaling via the nose – hence it was given the name ‘snuffbox’.
As the snuffbox is triangularly shaped, it has three borders, a floor and a roof:
▪️Ulnar (medial) border: Tendon of the extensor pollicis longus
▪️Radial (lateral) border: Tendons of the abductor pollicis longus and extensor pollicis brevis
▪️Proximal border: Styloid process of the radius
▪️Floor: Carpal bones, scaphoid and trapezium
(Note: The terms medial and lateral are used in the context of the anatomical position, where the forearm is supinated. Take care when describing these borders, as when observing a patient’s anatomical snuffbox, the forearm is usually pronated).
It is important to note that the tendons of the muscles form the borders, not the muscles themselves.
The main contents of the anatomical snuffbox are the radial artery, a branch of the radial nerve, and the cephalic vein:
▪️Radial artery: crosses the floor of the anatomical snuffbox, then turns medially and travels between the heads of the adductor pollicis muscle. ➡️ The radial pulse can be palpated in some individuals by placing two fingers on the proximal portion of the anatomical snuffbox.
▪️Superficial branch of the radial nerve: found in the skin and subcutaneous tissue of the anatomical snuffbox. It innervates the dorsal surface of the lateral three and half digits, and the associated area on the back of the hand.
▪️Cephalic vein: arises from the dorsal venous network of the hand and crosses the anatomical snuffbox to travel up the anterolateral aspect of the forearm.
this prep week has been so fun and i’m so excited to welcome more girls into my sorority. we have the highest greek life GPA and give 1,000+ service hours to local organizations that benefit the visually impaired.

This experience may have been the hardest one we ever had to go through, but it brought us closer to God. We learned to trust Him in the midst of the storm, and our faith only grew stronger. He has been showing us miracle after miracle and we've been praising Him for that. Even when it hurts and we don't understand why we have to go through this, all of our pain has a purpose. I know that our lives will be completely changed and God will be working through our family for His glory.

“Bravery is not the absence of fear.”
The drains are gone! Yesterday was my first post-op appointment with my surgeon after my gracilis muscle flap surgery. I was feeling so many different emotions going into this appointment because I was hopeful that my drains would be removed, but also terrified to actually have them removed. I’ve had a few drains before and removing them is always such an uncomfortable experience for me. Luckily, my surgeon was ready to remove the drains and after a few minutes (and a little pain/discomfort) they were out. I already feel so much better, especially without the drain to my knee.
My surgeon also lifted some of my restrictions, encouraging me to put full pressure on my leg and walk as much as I can. In his words, “be normal.”
While I will never be quite “normal”.. I was so happy to hear that I could finally get back to somewhat of my usual routine with a lot of extra rest in between. I still have sitting limitations and cannot extend my leg out or bend it fully at my hip for a few more weeks. I also have a great bit of swelling and pain where the muscle was tunneled under the skin to my pelvic area and walking unassisted is still so hard. All in all, it was a wonderful appointment and a huge step in my recovery. ✨

As most of you know i had a near death mountain biking accident in February. After the mri we discovered a disc between c3-c4 was worn and breaching the spinal column which must of hit the spinal cord causing temporary paralysis. It was a long road to recovery. On Wednesday i had this disc removed and fused to prevent anything like this happening again. Pictured is Wednesday straight after a 5 hour surgery and today being sunday up and walking around. Feeling pretty good right about now. #surgery#c3#c4#disc#spinalcordinjury#spinalfusion#goodtobealive

Traumatismo abdominal cerrado complicado con trauma hepatico. El trauma hepatico es un entidad que se presenta muy frecuentemente dentro del traumatismo abdominal cerrado, debido a la disposición, tamaño y distribución del hígado dentro de la cavidad abdominal; se puede presentar por aplastamiento, por compresión, aceleración y desaceleración o trauma directo, se clasifica en grados y, de acuerdo a estos se realiza la terapéutica del mismo. Actualmente ante la presencia de lesiones hepáticas secundarias a traumatismo, es el manejo conservador el que se preconiza, el cual en casos seleccionados ha brindado buenos resultados. Las razones que han contribuido a este éxito son: - Un mejor conocimiento de la historia natural del traumatismo hepático. Se ha visto que entre el 50 a 80% de los traumatismos hepáticos dejan de sangrar espontáneamente, lo que justifica el manejo conservador.
- La tendencia conservadora en el tratamiento del traumatismo esplénico ha ayudado a tomar la decisión.
- Mejores técnicas de imagen, que permiten diagnosticar el grado de la lesión, cuantificar el hemoperitoneo y las posibles lesiones asociadas.
- La mayor experiencia clínica con la laparotomía abreviada y la reoperación planeada (cirugía del control de daños).
- El tratamiento es seguro, con un porcentaje de éxito superior al 80% sin mortalidad.
- Se disminuye el número de complicaciones, la transfusión sanguínea y la estadía hospitalaria.
Existen criterios para poder decidir que pacientes deben recibir manejo conservador: 1. Estabilidad hemodinámica ( absoluto) 2. Integridad neurológica 3. Ausencia de irritación peritoneal 4. Objetivar lesión hepática mediante TAC 5. Monitoreo en unidad de trauma y presencia de pabellón 6. Cuantificación de hemoperitoneo en eco 7. Cantidad de transfusiones sanguíneas 8. Lesiones asociadas 9. Ausencia de hemorragia activa 10. Edad 11. Ausencia de tratamiento anticoagulante 12. Tipo de trauma. #surgery#cirugia#trauma#traumahepatico fin del comunicado
Getting diagnosed with breast cancer can be quite terrifying.
I always try to keep my patients informed and supported through their journey, whether that’s explaining every step of the procedure or talking to family members about expectations during post-op.
Thank you to this amazing nurse for sharing her experience battling through breast cancer at Maxwell Aesthetics ✨ #MaxwellAesthetics#PatientExperience#BreastCancer
