Terminating an electrical connection
Electrical wires in urethra with a knot in bladder
While it's good practice to use a knot for strain relief on some electrical wires, it can make them more difficult to extract. In this case the electric cable made a knot in the bladder during the manipulation so that removal by pulling on the distal ends that were depressing into the meat of the urethra was impossible. Due to the fact that the diameter of the electrical cable was 5 mm, introduction of any endoscopical instruments was considered impossible. A removal attempt was made, however, the knot slipped from the bladder over the urogenital diaphragm into the bulbar urethra. At this point, no further mobilisation was possible and the cable had to be removed by open surgery.
As described in the past literature most foreign bodies are inserted into the urethra by psychiatric, intoxicated, confused or sexually curious patients. The most common reason still seems to be auto-eroticism.
We always thought that was a figure of speech.
In 1882, a few years before Edison created the modern pornographic movie industry, French scientist Étienne-Jules Marey wanted to capture the motion of birds and small animals to study their movement, a discipline known as chronophotography.
He invented the Fusil Photographique, or "photographic rifle", which allowed Marey to track his subjects while shooting his images, effectively developing the technique of "panning" the camera.
The magazine holds a light sensitive gelatin emulsion plate that's big enough for 25 frames. The exposure is through one of the 12 shutters in front of the plate and the camera could take 12 exposures a second.
Focusing was accomplished by changing the length of the barrel.
It predates the reflex camera. It's a point-and-shoot.
We suggest a few basic rules:
- Know when it's loaded.
- Don't put your finger on the trigger until you're ready to shoot.
- Don't have a finger in front of the barrel.
- Abnormal bone development
- Blount's disease
- Fractures that do not heal correctly
- Lead or fluoride poisoning
- Rickets, which is caused by a lack of vitamin D
The brace usually has to be attached to the bones, so holes are made to pass the bolts and wires through.
The bones move around 1 mm/day and the procedure can take four to six months.
The excruciating pain goes away after a few weeks and will hopefully eliminate the need for hip or knee surgery later on.
There was severe damage to the left foot and ankle.
The crushed toe was removed from his foot.
Thanks to the surgeon, it's almost like new."Every moment is a fork in the road. The path you take will shape your future."
