Last week we sent out some hearts for the conference of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgeons (ANZSCTS). Today I’ve received a picture of one of them ready for action.
And what were they going to do with them? Replacement of the aortic valve, aortic root and ascending aorta in a workshop on the Bentall procedure.
Labbies will be pleased to note that even for heart surgeons sometimes it all comes down to skewers and sticky tape!
