Difficult Lumbar TFESIs
Even with more than a few years of experience under my belt, with more and more elderly and obese patients I’m finding that even with basic lumbar TFESI the frequency with which I cannot accomplish “plan A”, such as a L5-S1 TFESI using my go to subpedicular approach has risen. More tilt, more oblique, still giant facet in the trajectory view. A few attempts to corkscrew around the big joints unsuccessful. Move on to retrodiscal/Kambin triangle.

What's the patient population like in Vascular Surgery?
Just wondering what the patient population is like in regards to the etiology of their disease. Are they mostly caused by lifestyle decisions? i.e. smoking, obesity, etc? What percentage of patients have vascular problems without any poor lifestyle habits? How does this patient population compare with interventional cardiology in this regard? Also, how many vascular surgery patients are "emergent" compared to other surgical specialties? (Source: Student Doctor Network)

PGY2 here in a surg specialty. I came into medicine thinking I loved patient contact and surgery. Both of those dwindled during rotations, and even more in residency. Outright bored of being in the OR now, and not just the really uninteresting stuff like hip, but everything else too. I still love patient contact, my issue is with the patients themselves. Most of the patients are one of the following: alcoholics, rude, excessively overweight etc. I don't have anything against those traits... Patients (Source: Student Doctor Network)
