Sweet... a Mola Ram reference right out of the gate.

Everyone knows Kano was the originator of that procedure...

Kano not impressed.

I was coming in to drop the name of Mola Ram. Gotta be quick here. We've already got a comment, an acknowledgement, and a picture. Oh well.

Magua is angry that the white surgeon doctor takes credit for this procedure. Magua will take the surgeon doctor's beating heart from his chest, then show it to him. Magua is the CHIEF surgeon of the Huron! All know this!

Am i the only one that freaks out by the mental images of the procedure?

tsiros: I saw video of the procedure on BBC news last night. It was AWESOME. BBC website might have the clip somewhere if you want to indulge your curiosity.
 
2006-06-06 08:05:50 AM  
Yup, found the video here. May require RealPlayer, unfortunately.

The first time I saw that damn scene it scared the crap out of me.

But only the first time I saw it.

Really.

Interesting factoid: the heart can continue to beat in the absence of any command to do so from the brain, because it contains muscle cells that contract on their own, even when the heart is removed from the body entirely.

From TFA:

The pioneering procedure known as the TransMedics Organ Care System and developed in Boston...

Are you doing a US trial, too? Or just Europe right now? Why go overseas first?

:-) yep, but there's nothing cooler than seeing a heart beating outside a body.

Just Europe, easier to get permission to do trials in Europe. First trial started in Germany. http://www.transmedics.com/wt/page/pr_1140714229

Am I the only one who pictured the heart hopping around the desk in the movie AIRPLANE!?

I'm surprised no one has dropped a Road House reference yet...

But seriously, in order to donate your heart, don't you have to be dead first, and in order to be declared dead, doesn't your heart have to stop beating? So how do they remove the heart of someone who isn't legally dead yet?
