Photographic Evidence: Unorthodox bracing

We had a resident-led lecture on lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) and this handout was given to us:

If pain continues after 3 weeks, consider vulvar wrist splint to decrease active wrist extension.

The best part was that the resident actually read the sentence out loud and it took him several seconds of us snickering before he realized his mistake. He then turned pink and said, "Oh shit." And we all laughed hysterically for several minutes.

(What he meant was volar wrist splint, volar referring to the palm of the hand.)


  1. It's a pick-up line.

    "Hey, babe, can you help me splint my wrist?"

  2. Isn't another name for a vulvar brace a chastity belt?
