Week 46: Surgical tools | Hand Surgery, Orthopedics

Original sketches from OR sketchbook were rough: the primary focus at that point was to depict how the surgeon handles these tools and their overall shape.  They were then redrawn and cleaned up in Photoshop.

**feel free to use the close-up photo I took of curved surgical scissors, needle driver, micro scissors, and surgical forceps for your own reference :)

In the OR with Dr. Patty Hogan

(I thought this might be interesting for all the riders that don’t know what an OR for horses looks like and I like the B&W pictures)

hoovesandheartbeats:

There are two main branches of vessels below the carpus in the equine lower limb. Between the metacarpal and the interoseus (suspensory ligament) is the lateral/medial metacarpal vessels (2). Between the suspensory ligament and the deep digital flexor tendon is the lateral/medial palmar vessels (this is the main artery to the digit and hoof)(1).

The medial/lateral palmar vessels continue axially where they split into the medial/lateral digital arteries just above the fetlock.  The digital arties travel over the abaxial surface of the seasmoids (where they are palpable and where digital pules are frequently taken) and continue into the hoof as they travel with each side of the suspensory ligament.  The lateral digital artery is joined by the metacarpal arteries above the seasmoid bones.

Here’s an x-ray of a pregnant mama cat. She was left in a box at the front door of the clinic and she’s so fat I just had to snap an xray to count the babies. This is one of my favorite xrays to take. I counted four or five babies. They should be born any day now!
