Shall we start with a Below the Knee Amputation?
Dude, I’ve done this operation. quite a few times. It’s not fun; I didn’t like doing it. Brutal surgery.
A few other helpful suggestions we’ve compiled from personal research. Don’t watch while eating a hamburger or steak. Don’t send this link to your mom, even if she’s a doctor. And do not, under any circumstances, send one of these to your co-workers with the subject line, New From Zooborns, as a joke. It’s not funny.
lmao – I wonder whether that was naive, intentional, or a response to someone having done just that.
But right now, I have to fire off some e-mails..
That is one operation that clearly is done to save lives, I assume. I’m glad somebody can do it.
One person’s learning is another person’s porn.
One person’s beauty is another person’s disgust.
One person’s morality is another person’s immorality.
Did anyone else giggle a little when the doctors were all surprised to discover breast implants during the autopsy?
Fascinating. But it went so fast I couldn’t quite catch; did they put some kind of pad or bridge on the lower end of the bone? How does the point of amputation become able to support weight?
charfles: Yep. I managed to catch it before the narrator mentioned it, too.
george.w: well, they mention a bone bridge in the latter part, and I didn’t see anything cut off that would fit there, so I assume it’s something they attach to the bone after the cut.
BKA was the first operation I ever scrubbed in on.
BKA is one among many reasons that I’m doing emergency medicine and not surgery.
