General surgery

LCIS, Choice between FNA and CNB
By Hamed S. on 29. March 2017 for Malignant Breast Diseases

It would have been good to talk about LCIS as well as DCIS particular as the management differs. Also no discussion of the choice between FNAs and CNB in regards to sensitivity and specificity.

 
A good start
By Hamed S. on 28. March 2017 for Lower Gastrointestinal (GI) Bleeding: Examination & Diagnosis

I think it would be worthwhile to also focus on upper gi bleeding as well. Also It would extremely handy to learn about working up a patients with suspected GI, ie what investigations you would do first. Toronotes Notes has a wonderful flow chart in the Gastrointestinal chapter
