PTZ’s Advent – Dec. 18th: Dr. J.’s “Juvenile Nasopharyngeal Angiofibroma”


PTZ’s 2012 ADVENT CALENDAR
December 18th ~ BigTull Presents:
Dr. Janakiram’s “Juvenile Nasopharyngeal Angiofibroma – Endoscopic Removal “

A very excellent procedure by our very excellent and probably the longest running medical professional contributor on PTZ – Dr. Janakiram! This time Dr. J. turns his skills on an extremely large angiofibroma. One the nasal obstructive growth detached and “trimmed” enough to be removed… it seems the nasal passage is just too small for it to be pulled through.

FMI on the J.N.A., here are two good resources: Wikipedia, Medscape Reference

Thanks to Dr. Janakiram for all the entertaining, informational, and just plain jaw dropping ENT videos he has provided to us PTZers this past 2012 and for all the new and exciting procedures yet to come in 2013!!! ENJOY!

  1. Thank you Dr. J. It is so wonderful that you take you time to teach us. This was incredibly interesting and instructive. I have a couple of questions: what is the prognosis for this patient? Will he require any reconstructive surgery at a later date? Was this tumour malignant and will he require any type of treatment? I wish him well and hope that he is well along in his recovery from what looks like major surgery. It is wonderful that a procedure like this is even possible – today’s medicine allows all of this to happen. Without CT scans or endoscopes, this young man would have had a far different course.
    Thank you again. On behalf of many PTZers, I wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season and good health in 2013.

  2. I love Dr J videos so much. His navigation skills are amazing. He’s working in an area the size of a couple of marshmallows dissected with a bunch of bone. It’s crazy.
    My favorite mass removal surgeries have really clear planes between it and the bits that are supposed to be there. I love it when they can be peeled away like in this one. I love it!
    When he said he was going to deliver it through the mouth, all I could think about was all of the destruction he’d done with the sinuses, and now he’s going to go into the throat/mouth!? Sheesh, I’m glad he did. Since it’s a fibroma, I bet it was too solid/stiff to flex much. Sheesh.
    This patient must have had this obstruction for a really long time. Now that the mass is gone and the sinus has been opened up so much, it must feel like he’s got a wind tunnel in there. Thanks Dr. J! Thanks Big Tull!

  3. He works with such precision. This seems to be a different type of fascination than just pus. This is so impressive!

  4. Whenever I view Dr J’s more complicated procedures, I feel like I’ve just seen something quite profound. I’m sure his patients feel quite the same, even not having seen it. I certainly appreciate his willingness to share his gift with the rest of the world and thank him for it.

    Thank you, too, to Big Tull for finding this post.

    Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for a Blessed New Year.

    If that thing would haven come out while you were blowing your nose, It woulda broken your hand!

  6. I can’t even tell what I’m looking at most of the time, but I still really like watching these type video’s.

  7. Well, BigTull, you’ve done it again! It’s way over my head, but I don’t care…his videos make a lot more sense than the ones where the poppee plays with the goop but never actually removes any of it. :wink:

  8. My other half just walked past and said you’ve just had your tea (so had she)
    She then sat down and watched it with me and asked to watch it again.

    I can understand why people get a bit sicky watching but with Dr J’s exceptional skills at surgery and narration you really don’t have time to feel sick

    Always a 5 star just for the caption Dr J

    I love Dr. J! Always 5 Stars. I find his videos even more interesting because I recently took Anatomy & Physiology. When he speaks in “Medical”, I now understand the terminology (most of the time) and see the processes come together.

    Thanks!
