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.

As cancer survival rates improve, more people are living with the aftereffects of cancer treatment. For some patients, these issues include chronic radiation-induced skin injury – which can lead to potentially severe cosmetic and functional problems.

For many of us, as we get older the skin on our face begins to sag and we seem to lose volume around our eyes, cheeks and chin. Is gravity taking its toll in our later years? Or do we lose fat over the course of several years that many of us associate with youth, vibrancy and energy?

Physicians will ultimately face the necessary but unpleasant task of caring for a dying patient at some point in their careers. Communicating with patients or their families during such dire times is very important especially when the patient or family members have unrealistic expectations. Herein, we have highlighted practical suggestions which if applied can prevent unnecessary draining encounters with patients and families; for example, incorporating ancillary staff such as palliative and pastoral care into the care team. We have also proposed a new concept of ‘physician optimism’. Based on this concept, the physician can be classified as a pessimist or an optimist with realistic or unrealistic expectations and communicate to patients with or without requisite empathy. To ensure the best outcomes, we conclude that physicians must be realistic optimists who always communicate with empathy. Unrealistic optimism, no matter how well-intentioned, is deceiving to patients and their families will never allow a culture of trust.

It is vital that all emergency medicine physicians (EP) are able to perform and uate point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) images when a patient’s presentation is concerning for necrotizing fasciitis (NF).

We present a case of a 69-year-old man who had initially presented to an outside hospital with testicular edema and difficulty urinating. Consultative ultrasound was interpreted as a hydrocele and bilateral scrotal pearls but failed to identify the sonographic hallmarks of NF (subcutaneous thickening, free fluid, and subcutaneous air). Computed tomography (CT) performed several hours later re-demonstrated free air and fascial thickening in the scrotum prompting transfer to our hospital for a higher level of care. Upon arrival to our emergency department (ED) POCUS showed extensive free air with shadowing, thickened subcutaneous tissue, and fluid collections. The patient was immediately uated by general surgery and urology, who took him to the operating room for debridement.

This case highlights the challenges EP face when assessing patients with NF. Early-on, clinical findings can be subtle and easily missed. POCUS can aid in the diagnosis of this time-dependent disease process. Therefore, it is paramount that EPs look for and recognize characteristic sonographic findings present in NF to improve the accuracy and timeliness of the diagnosis.

We present the case of a patient who developed myalgia as the primary symptom of envenomation by the eastern coral snake, Micrurus fulvius. The patient was uated and treated in the emergency department. Physical examination did not demonstrate any neuromuscular abnormalities. On consultation with the poison control center, the patient's myalgia was determined to be an effect of envenomation, and 5 vials of North American coral snake antivenin were administered. The patient was admitted to the intensive care unit where his symptoms resolved. He was discharged the following day after remaining asymptomatic for 24 h.

BACKGROUND: Acute gastric remnant bleeding is a rare complication of bariatric surgery. Furthermore, acute bleeding from the gastric remnant resulting in gastric remnant outlet obstruction has not been described previously. Endoscopic management of gastric remnant bleed has been challenging due to difficulty accessing the excluded stomach. Traditionally, this necessitates surgical intervention. Recently, however, the adoption of endoscopic ultrasound-directed transgastric intervention provides an alternative approach to management.

CASE SUMMARY: A 65-year-old male with a prior gastric bypass presented with the sudden onset of progressive abdominal distension, nausea, and melena of two days duration. His imaging illustrated a massively distended stomach. A nasogastric tube did not result in drainage of fluid or decompression of his abdomen. His endoscopy revealed a normal-appearing gastro-jejunal anastomosis and confirmed the distended "fluid"-filled gastric remnant. An endoscopic ultrasound-directed gastrogastrostomy was created to decompress the gastric remnant. Two liters of blood was suctioned before a large adherent clot was visualized in the gastric antrum. The patient underwent emergent angiography with embolization of the gastroduodenal artery. He was discharged with a stable hemoglobin level and resolution of symptoms. Healing superficial gastric ulcers were visualized on a follow-up endoscopy. Gastric biopsies were consistent with Helicobacter pylori infection for which the patient was treated, and successful eradication was achieved.

CONCLUSION: This patient benefited from a timely diagnosis and effective therapy of an acute gastric remnant obstruction from a bleeding ulcer with endoscopic ultrasound-directed transgastric intervention.
