Orthopaedic Exam

Finally short case is over!

So I got Dr Chan, the funny orthopaedic surgeon! haha

My 1st case was Skin traction:

  1. Can u tell me what is this?
  2. What r d indications?
  3. What r d complications?
  4. What special thing u can notice for this Buck’s traction?

2nd case was peripheral nerve examination:

  1. This young boy presented with post-tumour excision.. Can u examine the neurological system?
  2. As usual, inspection, motor, nerve, scar..
  3. Then I said wanna examine proximal lymph node, Dr Chan said: “Please show me.”
  4. Then I said complete with examination for mets..

So the comments from him:

  1. Well done for upper limb.
  2. Nearly well done for skin traction.

I asked him what caused the “nearly well done”?

He said I should answer all the questions without him to say “What else?”. Coz I missed 1 complication and he said “What else?”

After I answered that, he moved on liao.. walao, za dao..

Then he told me to answer all the questions without having examiner to prompt me for answer in Prof exam.. Then will get full marks.. lol
