For most patients, the reasons for having a facelift are simple: to "turn back the clock" for a younger and more attractive appearance. Even during the pandemic year 2020, more than 234,000 patients underwent facelift surgery, according to American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) statistics.

Social media sites – especially Instagram – have revolutionized the way plastic surgeons market their practice. These platforms allow surgeons to post testimonials, educational videos and before-and-after photos.

Summer's coming, and for most guys that means shirts are coming off – at the beach, the pool or the jogging path. But some men are embarrassed by the way their chest looks due to the common problem of gynecomastia, or male breast enlargement.

Injectable dermal fillers provide a minimally invasive approach to reduce facial lines and wrinkles while restoring volume and fullness in the face. More than 2.7 million dermal filler procedures were performed in 2019, according to the most recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) – the world's largest plastic surgery organization, representing nearly 8,000 members – today released the 2020 results of the organization's annual procedure survey coupled with national consumer research reflecting trends during the COVID-19 era to help predict what 2021 will bring.

This case discusses the presentation of a surprising diagnosis of testicular compartment syndrome in a patient with severe testicular pain and swelling in the Emergency Department.

BACKGROUND: Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is used frequently to uate the right upper quadrant of patients with high suspicion for biliary pathology. In patients with a history of cholecystectomy, the utility of POCUS can be overlooked.

CASE REPORT: We report the case of an 83-year-old female patient who was ultimately diagnosed with cholangitis more than 60 years after undergoing cholecystectomy. POCUS demonstrated a dilated common bile duct (CBD), which was confirmed by computed tomography and magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography to be due to a large stone. WHY SHOULD AN EMERGENCY PHYSICIAN BE AWARE OF THIS?: Choledocholithiasis and cholangitis can still occur in patients with a remote history of cholecystectomy. POCUS can be used to rapidly uate the CBD for dilatation in patients post cholecystectomy.

Superficial thrombophlebitis (STP) is an inflammation of superficial veins with associated venous thrombosis. It is a benign condition usually and can be managed with a conservative approach with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and warm compression. When STP is associated with high-risk medical conditions such as cancer and chemotherapy, fatal complications such as pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep venous thrombosis (DVT) may ensue. The severity of thromboembolic complications of STP as well as the multiple common risk factors between DVT and STP has led to further research interest in exploring the efficacy of anticoagulation treatment in DVT and STP. Traditionally, low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) and warfarin have been used for the treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE), but recently direct oral Anticoagulants (DOACs) have emerged as a potential alternative considering better or equivalent efficacy, safety, and ease of use compared to LMWH and warfarin. A few case reports have described the advancement of STP to PE in cancer patients while on chemotherapy. We report a case of a 56-year old female with colon cancer on chemotherapy who developed PE after two episodes of STP. We recommend that when cancer patients on chemotherapy develop STP, prophylactic use of anti-coagulants should be considered to reduce the risk of serious complications.
