Background: Colonoscopy screenings are the most valuable tool in preventing colorectal mortalities. The traditional technique uses air-insufflation, but water-infusion is a newer colonoscopy technique which is rapidly becoming standard of care, as it may decrease patient discomfort and the need for analgesics and anesthetics. Research is still ongoing as to the comparability of detection rates between the two techniques. The purpose of this study was to determine if training residents in underwa...

A 24-year-old Caucasian male complained of sudden onset diplopia due to bilateral abducens palsy and throbbing headache with pulsatile tinnitus. Computed tomography revealed extensive thrombus in the right sigmoid sinus, right transverse sinus, and the superior sagittal sinus. Except for the prothrombin mutation, no other predisposing risk factors were found. The patient ...
