"On a scale of 1 to 5, how satisfied are you with the appearance of your breasts?" For nearly 40% of women after breast reconstruction, perceptions are substantially better or worse compared to ratings by third-party observers, concludes a study in the July issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

Suppose you had to choose a surgeon to perform breast reconstruction after mastectomy for breast cancer: What would you base your decision on? For most women, factors like reviews and personal recommendations are more important than demographic factors, suggests a report in the July issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

This is a case of an elderly man with lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma on a direct oral anticoagulant for atrial fibrillation who presented with weakness. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy found herpes esophagitis and islands of salmon-colored mucosa suspicious for Barrett's esophagus. Biopsies showed no signs of Barrett's Esophagus but returned positive for Russell bodies. This is the only reported case of Russell body esophagitis in the absence of Barrett's esophagus. This case adds to the mounting evidence that Russell body esophagitis and potentially all gastrointestinal Russell bodies should prompt further work-up for hematologic malignancy.

We report a case of a 54-year-old immunocompetent female with cervical spine discitis and osteomyelitis secondary to Nocardia nova. Nocardia nova is overall an exceedingly rare cause of infectious diseases. In this case, the patient was admitted for neck and right shoulder pain. One year prior, she had lumbar osteomyelitis (L4-L5) that required laminectomy. Cultures at that time grew Staphylococcus schleiferi and she was treated with cefazolin for six weeks. Six months later she presented with cervical spine (C4-C5) discitis/osteomyelitis. She underwent surgical laminectomy, biopsy and culture, which grew Nocardia nova. The patient was treated with intravenous amikacin and then transitioned to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole for a total of twelve months. Other case reports of spinal osteomyelitis secondary to nocardia describe treatment with antibiotics, surgical debridement plus or minus arthrodesis with favorable outcome in improving pain and functionality at 3 years.1 In our case, the patient completed the course of antibiotics and 6 months later, imaging of the cervical spine showed mild height loss at C4 and C5, however no significant acute changes in the cervical spine, epidural or prevertebral soft tissue collections. She continues with chronic neck pain but repeated MRI of the cervical spine at 2 years shows no evidence of osteomyelitis or soft tissue edema.

On June 28, 2021, the incoming residents reported for their first day of orientation at HCA Florida Westside Hospital (HFWH). This GME program is a joint venture and requires the same level of commitment from HCA Florida Northwest Hospital (HFNWH). As a new employee, I was immediately impressed with the residents, leadership, and staff. Everyone was relaxed, excited, attentive, and cooperative. I met people from all over the world, from different religions, and of different sexual orientations. The following day the same group of residents attended orientation at HFNWH and the leadership and staff were equally impressive. I went home feeling energized by this extraordinary residency program where diversity, equity and inclusion were not just words but were embodied in both the residency program, and both hospitals. I created “Building HCA Bridges” as an abstract expression with feelings, movement, textures, and symbolic colors. When I stepped back, I realized that the painting was missing something. The next day, I spoke with the GME and hospital leadership and with their support, the painting was subsequently passed throughout both hospitals, and everyone was invited to sign. This small gesture created a sense of community, pride, and validation for all who participated in creating this incredible residency program and ultimately, unique piece of artwork. I am submitting the traveling painting, “Building HCA Bridges” on behalf of the inaugural GME programs at HFWH and HFNWH and for those who support the programs every day. We are blessed.

This poem explores the experience of being an Asian American care provider and civilian, growing up and trying to mesh together culture with “fitting in” and suffering racism from other individuals and patients. It was inspired by the March 16, 2022, shootings in Atlanta and discusses the origin of hatred and racism/xenophobia. What I hope this conveys is a glimpse into the shared perspectives of many Asian American and Pacific Islanders and describes the optimism moving forward as we begin to tackle these issues.

I am a second-year family medicine resident with a rather large arm-sleeve tattoo. As you can probably deduce by reading the title of this editorial, it will focus on how tattoos in healthcare may be perceived by others. My goal is to illustrate some of my perspectives, opinions, and experiences regarding making my tattoos visible in the clinical setting.
