The following sentence doesn't sound right to me, it doesn't seem to flow. Would appreciate anyone's thoughts on punctuation, changes for clarification, etc.

"Having dissected it free adequately, the saphenous vein was dissected in a similar method up to the level of the femoral saphenous junction. There was a large branch of it superiorly that was dissected free, preserving some length to use later in the case for introduction of the angioscope, was taken between clips and divided."

Phil, you will be more likely to get some help if you post in a forum that is intended for that. Try the second one from the top of the medical transcription forum list.

Having said that, I think one should really complete a final examination without outside help.

happy wednesday

Thank you. I wasn't sure where to post.

I'm just very uneasy about punctuation, which is why I was asking. But you are right...the final exam should be done without any help.

Hello to everyone! I wish I had found this site months ago, I also have had much misery with the accents and comma placement in this course. Glad to hear that I am not alone.
I am working on the final exam and praying that I can get it right.

Quiz 38 - Jack Serry...this sentence seems way too long, I need some help w/punctuation & sentence structure please!


With the patinet supine on the operating table and under general endotracheal anesthesia, the right groin and lower extremities, as wll as the left lower extremity, which included a previously performed BKA were shaved, prepped with Betadine, draped in the usual sterile manner with a groin towel sewn in with 3-0 nylons.

Thank you

Looks pretty good, just a couple of things.

..groin and lower extremity (no comma)
comma after BKA

That's all!! Nice job. Looks like you're getting close to the finish line...I remember how that feels.
