Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
Legends of Surgery
In this episode, we'll cover the brilliant but difficult character of Guillaume Dupuytren, and of course the disease which bears his name. In addition to his life, we'll take a deep dive into the history of Dupuytren's disease, also known as the Viking's disease, the curse of the MacCrimmons, and the Hand of Benediction, among others. There are lots of side stories, too, including a bit of history of the bagpipes!
And 'Suture Tales' makes a return for the 50th anniversary of the Swan-Ganz catheter!
