Mark Leyner fans rejoice! I’ve decided to focus my efforts on the abdomen for Medical Hospital. Other cool sets of procedures will come later, but the abdomen is totally disgusting and offers a lot of variety. Here’s the list:

CLASS C

LYSIS OF ADHESIONS
TRADITIONAL OPEN APPENDECTOMY
PERITONEOVENOUS SHUNT
UMBILICAL HERNIORRHAPHY
GASTROSTOMY
INGUINAL HERNIA REPAIR

CLASS B

ANTRECTOMY/VAGOTOMY; OR PEPTIC ULCER GASTRECTOMY/ VAGOTOMY
SPLENECTOMY (PARTIAL OR TOTAL)
ANTERIOR ADRENALECTOMY
PYLOROPLASTY/VAGOTOMY
SMALL BOWEL RESECTION
MECKEL’S DIVERTICULECTOMY

CLASS A

ADENOCARCINOMA GASTRECTOMY
HEPATECTOMY (PARTIAL OR TOTAL)
ORTHOTOPIC HEPATIC TRANSPLANT
BILLROTH 1 GASTRODUODENOSTOMY

So 16 Procedures, most of them in the gut, two with stuff going on in the neck as well. This is a really good way to focus my efforts, and the trauma cases will still be grisly whole body affairs. I’ll add a Class A dealing with the pancreas but I don’t have one yet.

    Individual instructions will look like this:

    Prep:

    (From cadaver) Remove donor’s liver with large portion of superior vena cava still attached.

    Follows immediately after total Hepatectomy procedure:

    Clamp hepatic artery, hepatic vein, common bile duct, and portal vein.

    Place donor liver.

    (cadaver donor) suture donor superior vena cava to existing structure.

    Suture existing hepatic artery, hepatic vein, common bile duct, and portal vein to donor liver.

    Place T-tube in bile duct and fix in place with PFTE mesh.

    Remove all clamps.

    Suture and close.

    I think you date both of us with that reference. I just got rid of that book at Thanksnerding after carrying through 10 moves or more.

    btw, congrats on dialing down the scope of MedHos
