Just after noon on a spring day in 2006, aspiring singer-songwriter Hilary Williams and her sister Holly - the granddaughters of country legend Hank Williams and daughters of country music star Hank Williams, Jr. - were driving through Mississippi down a rural stretch of Route 61 on their way to their grandfather’s funeral. Suddenly, the front wheel of the truck became caught in one of the many deep ruts and gravel lining the road, causing the vehicle and its passengers to flip over several times, crushing steel and breaking fragile bones as it crashed. Holly was lucky. She only suffered a broken wrist and cuts and bruises. But when the Jaws of Life finally pried Hilary's shattered body free of the wreckage, she was in shock and barely breathing. She had suffered two broken legs, several broken ribs, a ruptured colon, and bruised lungs. Her back, collarbone, tailbone, pelvis, and right femur were fractured. Her hips were crushed. It had taken nearly 30 minutes for an ambulance to arrive, and she had already lost a large amount of blood. Then, as EMTs scrambled to stabilize her in the middle of a muddy Mississippi field, Hilary Williams died. But that was only the beginning. This is a story of struggle and pain. But more so, it is a story of second chances, of love and resolve and recovery. When she was pulled back into life, Hilary’s world changed. It was the beginning of a long, courageous, and inspiring journey during which she would undergo 23 surgeries and years of therapy. Along the way, with her family at her side, Hilary has learned the meaning of strength, not only the strength to survive, but the strength to live with the legend, the talent, the burden, and the privilege of her place in country music’s most famous family. 1.

Through my life I have battled several diseases and two life threatening cancers. Consequently, during a few all-out battles to regain my health and keep my personal assets, I learned how to come back from almost everything. I learned how to build and to rebuild my fortune.As a kid I suffered from migraine headaches that would cause me to black out, but I found a way to manage them. I was a millionaire before I was 30, but lost it to a long bout with colon cancer. I developed colon cancer and had to have my entire colon removed, I found a procedure in London that gave me a normal life again. Half a man, but recovering, I rebuilt my lost fortune from the ashes. I then developed avascular necrosis of my right femur head, or the death and collapse (fourth degree collapse) of my right hip from steroids. In the face of eight doctors who were at the top in their field from the largest hospitals, who urged me to have my hip replaced immediately or I would damage my upper socket, I figured out how to save my hip, and 30 years later I am running on my God given hip. I learned to control electrolyte imbalances that swayed my health violently. I then developed head and neck cancer. Being decimated by the surgery and radiation, I came back again with careful diet and exercise. Once again faced with the loss of my fortune, I battled back using the same fail proof model that I used before.Next came the separation of nerves in my neck from the radiation, making it difficult to hold my head up. The muscle deterioration from the radiation that was getting worse until with diet, exercise, and using an oxygen generator I figured out how to handle it and rebuild my neck and shoulder muscles. During procedures and while suffering with illnesses I went from 180 lbs. to 125 several times. I learned to fight back to a healthy weight and life style many times, and I will share my diet, exercise and mind set with you.I discuss how to find great medical institutions an 1.

Analysis of a Kayabasi Ekici Type Hip Prosthesis

The finite element method, one of the most advanced simulation techniques in solid mechanics, is used for orthopedic biomechanics. It is used as a tool for the design and analysis of total joint replacement and other orthopedic devices. The design of hip joint prostheses is a complex process that requires close co-operation between engineers and surgeons. One of the most important factors in the implant design is to reduce stress on the femur and the bone-cement. The purpose of this study is to investigate the behavior of newly designed implants under body weight load during stumbling by parametric modeling. In the parametric design, the prosthesis functional requirement is that the locking of stem to the femur head using cement should be strong enough to preclude unlocking during the life time of a patient and to prevent sliding of the implant into the bone-cement. These parameters are then optimized. Using the results of this investigation, the probability of failure was investigated for both the initial and shape-optimized prosthesis designs using several simple performance functions describing fatigue theory.

Bone Mineral Density and Atherosclerosis in Pos...

The relationship between Bone mineral density (BMD) and atherosclerosis in older postmenopausal women is a subject of increasing concern because of the great importance of atherosclerotic diseases in later life and the need to identify its potentially modifiable risk factors. This thesis was carried on 150 ambulant postmenopausal women apparently healthy (aging from 55 years old and above) in Ain Shams University Hospitals, Cairo, Egypt. Measurement of BMD of lumbar spine and femur neck by DEXA scan and measurement of intima-media thickness of both common and internal carotid arteries by ultrasonography with assessment of plaques and the degree of stenosis (if present) were carried out. The results of this study revealed that there is a statistically significant positive relation between the presence of plaques in carotid arteries and low BMD of both lumbar spine and femur neck. Multinomial logistic regression analysis showed that after controlling for age and duration of menopause, osteoporosis of femur neck could be used as a predictor for atherosclerotic plaques in postmenopausal women.

Although near-miss situations are relatively rare in anesthesiology, it is essential to know how to respond if the situation arises. This collection of actual cases, compiled from the author's 30+ years practice in major metropolitan hospitals in the US, Sweden and South Africa, is an excellent review of potential problems and solutions all anesthesiologists should be familiar with. The cases are succinct, with the problem and a solution described, then concluded by a retrospective analysis that examines whether the solution used was actually the best (or only) choice, or if other solutions might provide equally satisfactory outcomes. Also included in the analyses are tips to help avoid the problem altogether, when possible. This book is an excellent review for the ABA oral exam and is an easy and practical way to prepare for the unexpected in the daily practice of clinical anesthesia. TOC:No fiberoptic intubation system: a potential problem?.- Is the patient extubated?.- A strange computerized ECG interpretation.- Fractured neck of femur in an elderly patient.- Spinal anesthetic that wears off before surgery ends.- Understanding DNR/DNI orders.- Burn prevention in the operating room.- Inguinal hernia repair in a diabetic patient.- Case of the hidden IV.- Ideal pulse oximeter placement.- Awake craniotomy with language mapping.- Gum elastic bougie to facilitate intubation.- External vaporizer leak during anesthesia.- Manual ventilation by a single operator: Omar's slave for difficult positioning.- Life threatening arrhythmia in an infant.- Tongue ring: Anesthetic risks and potential complications.- Hasty C-arm positioning: A recipe for disaster.- Inability to remove a nasogastric tube.- An unusual cause of difficult tracheal intubation: Religious beliefs and customs.- Pulmonary edema following abdominal laparoscopy.- Difficult laryngeal mask airway placement: A possible solution.- Postoperative airway complication following sinus surgery.- Investigating an unusual capnograph tracing: Check your connections.- Endotracheal intubation for atransjugular intrahepatic porto-systemic shunt (TIPS) procedure.- Tracheostomy by an anesthesiologist: Be prepared.- General anesthesia for a patient with a difficult airway and a full stomach.- Jehovah's Witness and a potentially bloody operation.- Intraoperative insufflation of the stomach.- Sudden intraoperative hypotension.- Overestimation of blood pressure from an arterial pressure line.- Severe decrease in lung compliance during a code blue.- Shortening postoperative recovery time after an epidural: Is it possible? .- Difficult airway in an under-equipped setting.- Delayed cutaneous fluid leak following removal of an epidural catheter.- Traumatic hemothorax and same-side central venous access.- An apparent single abdominal knife wound: Check for other wounds.- A draw-over vaporizer with a non-rebreathing circuit.- Unexpected intraoperative 'oozing'.- Central venous access and the obese patient.- Taking over for a colleague: Check the facts and know the medications.- Intraoperative epidural catheter malfunction.- Breathing difficulties after an ECT.- White clumps in the blood sample from an arterial line: Beware of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia.- Anesthesia for a surgeon who has previously lost his privileges.- Airway obstruction in a prone patient.- Expected length of case: A question you should always ask.- Postoperative vocal cord paralysis.- Substance abuse by a colleague: a serious problem.- A leaking endotracheal tube in a prone patient.- Lessons from the field: Unusual problems require unusual solutions in impossible situations.- Avoiding air embolism during administration of albumin.- Trouble-shooting leaks: A loud 'pop' intraoperatively and now you can't ventilate.- Postoperative median nerve injury.- Patient in a halo: Intraoperative adjustments change your view and access.- Now or never: Developing professional judgment.- General anesthesia in a patient with chronic amphetamine use.- What's wrong with this picture?
