Fellowshipping: Month 3

Sacramento, CA, USA

Just completed my 3rd month of fellowship, and I'm excited to share with you some things I've learned this month.

I spent a the majority of this month working in the outpatient setting (still on the neuro vascular side) and on the inpatient floors managing neurosurgery service patients. 

One of the things I have pretty much solidified is how incidental aneurysm findings are. Many patients typically present for some other condition, happened to get a scan, and an aneurysm was detected. 

Another thing I learned is how important/relevant family history can be. I've noticed that several patients happened to have direct family members who also had a brain aneurysm. 

Inpatient-wise, I have adjusted and gotten used to who is who and who to call for what for the most part. All has been going well, I think, and I'm still learning and asking questions every day. 

Conditions I've learned about this month:

  • Moyamoya disease
  • Arteriovenous malformation
  • Aneurysms
  • Cerebral cavernous malformation
