Cardiac Cowboys: The Heroic Invention of Heart Surgery

Before 1952, open heart surgery was considered science fiction. The heart was off limits to surgeons despite more than half a million Americans dying annually from heart disease. Doing nothing was the strategy. However, the status quo would soon change thanks to a few brave and imaginative surgeons who dared to break the most rigid of medical taboos: Do not touch the human heart. We sat down with Dr. Gerald Imber, author of the new book “Cardiac Cowboys: The Heroic Invention of Heart Surgery” to discuss how five men raced to invent an entirely new field of surgery. Guests: Jessica Millar, MD- General Surgery Resident- University of Michigan; Education Fellow- Behind the Knife Nick Teman, MD- Associate Professor of Cardiac Surgery and Critical Care- University of Virginia Gerald Imber- Assistant Clinical Professor of Plastic surgery at the Weill-Cornell Medical Center, Attending Surgeon at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, and Director of a private clinic in New York City, NY; Author of “Wendell Black, MD”, “Genius on the Edge: The Bizarre Double Life of Dr. William Stewart Halsted”, and “Cardiac Cowboys: The Heroic Invention of Heart Surgery”.

Clinical Challenges in Trauma Surgery: Approach to Pancreatic Injury

Eat when you can, sleep when you can, and don’t F with the pancreas! What happens when that third rule goes wrong, and why do people say pancreas injuries are like eating crawfish? Whether you love the pancreas or just the mention of the P-word strikes fear in your heart, or if you just want the answer to the aforementioned questions, join Drs. Cobler-Lichter, Kwon, and Meizoso, as they guide you through all this and more! Hosts: - Michael Cobler-Lichter, MD, PGY3, University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital/Ryder Trauma Center, @mdcobler (twitter) - Eugenia Kwon, MD, Trauma/Surgical Critical Care Fellow, University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital/Ryder Trauma Center -Jonathan Meizoso, MD, MSPH Assistant Professor of Surgery, 4 years in practice, University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital/Ryder Trauma Center, @jpmeizoso (twitter) Learning Objectives: - Describe the AAST grading system for pancreatic injuries - Come up with a treatment plan for each grade of pancreatic injury - Identify commonly associated injuries with pancreatic trauma - List potential complications of pancreatic trauma and/or surgery Quick Hits: 1. Pancreas injuries do not all require a trip to the operating room. Low grade injuries should be managed with a trial of nonoperative management if there are no other operative indications 2. CT is the best initial imaging modality, although it has low sensitivity. If there is high concern for a pancreas injury based on mechanism or associated injuries, further investigation is required. 3. Pancreas injuries are like crawfish: suck the head and eat the tail. 4. Injuries to the left of the SMV can generally be treated with distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy, whereas injuries to the right of the SMV are usually drained. 5. Its important to identify and address any concomitant injuries, with duodenal injuries being the most common in higher grade injuries. 6. In the case of the dreaded grade 5 injury, the safe answer is to come back and do your reconstruction at a later time.

Global Surgery Episode 2: Trauma Care in Resource-Limited Settings

Join us for another episode of our Global Surgery series, where we have a special focus on trauma care in resource-limited settings. Traumatic injury remains one of the largest burdens of disease and causes of mortality internationally. The WHO estimates that 4.4 million lives are lost to traumatic injuries per year, accounting for approximately 8% of all deaths. Notably, traumatic injuries are the top killer of children, adolescents, and young adults, compounding the patient-years lost. Trauma is ubiquitous–accidents and injuries happen all over the globe, and thus differences in trauma incidence and mortality is often a function of health systems and infrastructure. Jon Williams is joined by Dr. Anthony Charles. Dr. Charles is a trauma surgeon at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Additionally, he holds professorships in the medical school and school of public health at UNC, as well as serving as the director of the adult ECMO program and the director of global surgery at the UNC Institute of Global Health and Infectious Diseases. He leads the Malawian Surgical Initiative, designed to train and support local surgeons in the country of Malawi where he has established a longstanding partnership with UNC. Having been raised in Nigeria, Dr. Charles completed medical school at the University of Lagos, and subsequently underwent general surgery residency training in London at North Middlesex University Hospital and subsequently at Charles Drew University in Los Angeles. Upon completion of trauma and critical care fellowship at University of Michigan, he took a faculty position at UNC where he has remained since and grown the global surgery presence to what it is today. Key Points: Often, the pivotal first step in developing global surgery trauma initiatives is increasing trained personnel, and so training initiatives are very meaningful and provide sustainability to the effort. Growing a health system’s ability to provide trauma care helps develop improved care for all aspects of disease. The resources, training, and infrastructure required benefits healthcare at large. Improvement of trauma care extends well beyond in-hospital care–injury prevention and pre-hospital care/triage/transport are even more impactful. It takes more than surgeons to improve trauma care globally. Thus, clinician and non-clinician training and oversight is critical, and foundational concepts of care of the trauma patient must be familiar to all. Local governing bodies need to understand the importance of trauma care to invest in it. Traumatic injuries and mortality are a health burden, but even more so an economic burden to a country. This is what is compelling to investment in trauma care. We now have over 725 episodes!

Journal Review in Surgical Education: Artificial Intelligence

With the increasing popularity of artificial intelligence, its uses are quickly becoming not only a part of everyday life, but also training in surgery. Those of us without much understanding of the technology might be intimidated by this nebulous topic, or worry that we won’t be able to comprehend the advancements to come to the field. Luckily, we’re joined by a leading expert in the use of AI in surgery, Dr. Dan Hashimoto. He breaks down some examples of how AI is being used in surgical education, the role surgeons should play in these advancements, and some tips for how we can critically appraise work in the field of AI if we don’t understand the technology ourselves. Join hosts Nicole Brooks, MD, Judith French, PhD and Jeremy Lipman, MD, MHPE for this exciting conversation. Learning Objectives 1. Listeners will describe how AI is being applied to surgical education. 2. Listeners will identify the roles surgeons without training in AI can play in developing the use of AI in surgery. 3. Listeners will explain the regulatory and ethical considerations that must be addressed with the implementation of AI in surgical education. 4. Listeners will consider principles for critically evaluating research or technology in AI for application or use in their own educational or surgical practice.

Clinical Challenges in Bariatric Surgery: Internal Hernia

You get called to see a consult in the middle of the night. It is a middle-aged woman with a bariatric history, and she says her stomach is smaller but doesn’t know the name of the operation. She developed worsening abdominal pain after dinner and it’s been getting worse. She’s not peritonitic, but she’s clearly in discomfort. Is it cholecystitis, diverticulitis, pancreatitis, marginal ulcer, or an internal hernia? What do you do? Join Drs. Matthew Martin, Adrian Dan, and Paul Wisniowski on a discussion about initial evaluation and management of bariatric patients with internal hernias. Show Hosts: Matthew Martin Adrian Dan Paul Wisniowski Show Notes 1. Initial Evaluation a. Focused history and physical, labs, and imaging i. Presenting symptoms may vary and include: nausea, emesis, and abdominal pain ranging from vague to severe. ii. A basic lab panel can aid in developing the diagnosis and guide resuscitation. iii. CT of the abdomen and pelvis with IV and oral contrast can assist in identifying intra-abdominal pathology iv. Reviewing the previous operative report is beneficial to have a framework of the anatomy, i.e. type of bariatric surgery, and configuration of small bowel limbs (ante- vs retro-gastric and ante- vs retro-colic). 1. According to a 2019 study, 40-60% of closed defects had reopened at time of re-exploration v. If the patient is peritonitic with abdominal pain, they should be treated similarly to any patient with an acute abdomen with emergent exploration. b. CT Imaging i. A mesenteric swirl sign with twisting of the soft tissue and mesenteric vessels with surrounding fat attenuation has been shown to have a sensitivity of 78-100% and specificity of 80-90%. Other findings include: a Bird’s beak, dilation of roux or biliopancreatic limbs, SMV narrowing, and displacement of JJ limb to the RUQ and can be used to support the diagnosis of internal hernia ii. An experienced radiologist familiar with bariatric anatomy has been shown to have a positive predictive value to 81% and negative predictive value to 96% at radiologically diagnosing internal hernia. iii. A CT scan can provide insight for a suspected diagnosis but it cannot rule out internal hernia c. Nasogastric/Esophageal Tube i. Use judiciously based on patient’s presenting symptoms ii. Placement should be done by the surgical team iii. This may mitigate the risk of aspiration during intubation. 2. Operative Management a. Entry should be dependent on the comfort of the operating surgeon. i. Veress entry into the abdomen with dilated bowels may lead to increased injuries. ii. Optiview allows for direct visualization of each layer of the abdominal wall. Focusing on twisting the trochar and limiting perpendicular pressure. iii. Hasson entry also allows for direct visualization but may be limiting in bariatric patients with thick abdominal walls b. Exploration – a systematic approach i. Start with evaluation of the gastric pouch and run the roux limb to the jejunojejunostomy, and examine Petersen’s and mesojejunal defects. ii. Follow the biliopancreatic limb to the ligament of Treitz iii. Lastly, identify the terminal ileum at the sail of Treves and run backwards to the jejunojejunostomy iv. This will allow for examination of all possible defect and possible intussusception at the jejunostomy c. Defect Management i. All defects should be closed, with studies demonstrating reduced rates of internal hernia when defects are closed with a running suture. There is no strong evidence to support the use of a specific suture material. 1. The use of suture is superior to other methods of closure such as metallic clips, fibrin glue, mesh, or abrasive pads. 2. A barbed suture can be considered. d. In a patient with unfavorable anatomy or those unable to tolerate pneumoperitoneum surgeons should consider early conversion to open exploration 3. Postoperative Care a. Patients are started on ERAS protocol with limited narcotic use, same day mobilization, early oral nutrition with advancement, and no nasogastric tubes or foley catheters b. Patients with bowel resection and those with suspected postoperative ileus may benefit from judicious advancement of diet. 4. Pregnancy a. Pregnant patients with history of anastomotic bariatric surgery are at increased risk of internal hernia especially in 3rd trimester due to loss of intra-abdominal space b. Evaluation of a pregnant patient should include abdominal imaging. i. In a non-acute setting, an MRI abd/pelvis can be considered. ii. Patients with abdominal pain presenting to the Emergency Department should undergo CT imaging. iii. The risk of radiation to a fetus, especially beyond the 1st trimester, is limited. Based on the CDC guidelines, a human embryo and fetus are sensitive to ionizing radiation at doses greater than 0.1Gray. The amount of radiation from a typical CT range from 0.015 to 0.034Gray depending if it is multiphasic or not; well below the guideline level. c. It is important to discuss with women of child bearing age the risk of internal hernia during pregnancy with anastomotic bariatric surgery 5. Outpatient Presentation a. Half of patients with internal hernia will present in outpatient setting often >6 months after initial operation with complaints of intermittent nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain b. Workup includes: CT abd/pelvis with IV and oral contrast, Upper GI series, EGD, and a RUQ ultrasound based on their symptoms c. If diagnostic testing is equivocal, proceed with diagnostic laparoscopy to mitigate the risk of internal hernia with bowel ischemia. **Introducing Behind the Knife's Trauma Surgery Video Atlas - https://app.behindtheknife.org/premium/trauma-surgery-video-atlas/show-content The Trauma Surgery Video Atlas contains 24 scenarios that include never-before-seen high-definition operative footage, rich, original illustrations, and practical, easy-to-read pearls that will help you dominate the most difficult trauma scenarios. ***Fellowship Application - https://forms.gle/5fbYJ1JXv3ijpgCq9*** Please visit https://behindtheknife.org to access other high-yield surgical education podcasts, videos and more.

Clinical Challenges in Hepatobiliary Surgery: Bilateral Colorectal Liver Metastasis

Surgical resection of bilateral colorectal liver metastasis (CLM) can pose a significant challenge to even the most experienced HPB surgeon. Is surgical resection justified, if so, in which patients? What’s the best surgical approach for curative intent resection of all lesions, and does ablation play a role? In this episode from the HPB team at Behind the Knife, listen in on the discussion about the surgical management of patients with bilateral colorectal liver metastasis. Hosts Anish J. Jain MD (@anishjayjain) is a T32 Research Fellow at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center within the Department of Surgical Oncology. Timothy E. Newhook MD, FACS (@timnewhook19) is an Assistant Professor within the Department of Surgical Oncology.
