The foramen ovale “mirage” and how this impacts percutaneous cannulation for treatment of trigeminal neuralgia: a report of two cases
We describe two cases in which needle advancement into FO was unachievable despite appropriate needle placement on biplane fluoroscopy. Intraoperative multiplanar reconstruction was helpful in more accurately depicting foraminal anatomy which allowed the manipulation of the tip of the needle, which was followed by successful FO cannulation. We propose that this “mirage” is likely created by the inherent nature of X-ray-based fluoroscopy in which the FO appears to be readily penetrable, when in fact the 3D anatomy actually prevents cannulation.
The vaccines may well continue to ward off severe illness and death, although booster doses may be needed to protect most people. Still, the makers of the two most effective vaccines, Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna, are preparing to reformulate their shots if necessary.

What I mean to ask is that, removing anything amazing such as the preverbial cancer cure, being a Navy SEAL, or being a nurse in a low income hospital first etc, do adcoms consider the level of accomplishment/participation or just that it was done? For example, with leadership activities do reviewers notice and take into account if you were, say, the president of an international org as opposed to president or VP of a campus club? Both are leadership, both impressive but I would say the... Read more

Last week I described some of the reasons for using a case formulation approach when working through initial assessment information, and today I’m going to describe one approach for organising a formulation. This is the “4 P” formulation, and it’s one that’s often used in mental health (Bolton, 2014). In the 4 P model, there are four questions to ask yourself: Preconditions – Why is this person vulnerable to this problem?Precipitating factors – Why now? This can mean “why is this person having symptoms now?” or “why is this person presenting to this person ...
