Miracle man of the Western front : Dr. Varaztad H. Kazanjian, pioneer plastic surgeon by Hagop Martin Deranian( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the intense fighting that marked World War I in Europe, an Armenian-American volunteer dentist quickly became known for his skill in treating the disfiguring facial injuries suffered by large numbers of British soldiers. Working originally under primitive conditions in makeshift hospitals near the battlefields of France, Varaztad H. Kazanjian exhibited a humane concern combined with innovative medical procedures that established his reputation and marked his subsequent career as a founder of the modern practice of plastic surgery. In recognition of his war service, Dr. Kazanjian became known as "the miracle man of the Western Front" and was invested by England's King George V in the most distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George. Other honors followed as Dr. Kazanjian returned to the United States, where he continued his education and went on to a brilliant career as a surgeon, teacher at Harvard, and author of scientific articles. This biography traces the many influences that contributed to the remarkable success of the young man who fled from massacres in Ottoman Armenia to the United States in 1895. From modest beginnings in Worcester, Massachusetts, Kazanjian managed to enter Harvard Dental School. He went on to serve in World War I, earn a medical degree, and make remarkable advances in plastic surgery. He is remembered not only for his medical innovations and accomplishments, but also as a kind and modest person, "the gentle genius of plastic surgery."--Adapted from book jacket

Blood and guts: a history of surgery( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The third in a 5-part series in which Michael Mosley traces the evolution of surgery as it progressed, in his words, from butchery to brilliance. This part features transplant surgery. Mosley travels back in history to the 18th century in which the first transplants took place; the healthy teeth of the poor were stuck into the mouths of the bad-toothed rich. The Frenchman Alexis Carrel was the first surgeon to learn how to stitch arteries together after taking painstaking lessons from a seamstress. Carrel then went on to experiment with transplant surgery, mainly operating on animals although with no success. He hadn't understood the role of the immune system in rejecting transplanted tissue. Early footage of a kidney transplant is shown and Joseph Murray talks about his groundbreaking work in transplanting a healthy kidney from one identical twin to another. Murray realised that he also had to tackle the immune system so that it wouldn't reject the transplanted kidney - he used total body radiation so that the immune system would be irradiated however all patients he experimented on died from overwhelming infections. Roy Calne suggested using medicine to suppress the immune system rather than radiation and he experimented with cyclosporine mixed with olive oil to great success. After this heart transplants became more and more frequent. In 1997 the first hand transplant was performed on Clint Hallam - unfortunately not only did Hallam find it hard to adapt to the transplanted hand psychologically, he found the rejection medicines gave him unpleasant side effects but if he cut them down his new hand would begin to rot. Eventually the hand was completely rejected by his body and he had it surgically removed. Mosley meets Hallam and his new prosthetic arm. Surgeon Warren Breidenbach has performed several successful hand transplants; Mosley meets one of his patients

Mend Me : a Horizon Guide to Transplants( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Presented by Michael Mosley, this Horizon Guide looks back at the extraordinary odds doctors and patients have had to overcome to achieve radical breakthroughs in transplant surgery, from full face transplants to growing organs in the lab. Key turning points for transplant surgery are revisited using the Horizon archive to explore how far science can go in its bid to prolong life. Mosley begins by visiting Brigham and Women{u2019}s Hospital, Boston, to interview Dr Bohdan Pomahac. They discuss the case of Mitch Hunter, one of the first face transplant recipients. Hunter is interviewed four months after his surgery. The history of transplantation is introduced with the story of Alexis Carrel, the first surgeon to experiment with transplantation in the early twentieth century. We are then shown footage from The Man Makers, 1968, in which Oxford biologist Peter Medawar{u2019}s skin graft experiments on rabbits are discussed, revealing the science behind rejection. Early experiments in human transplantation led to ethical and moral dilemmas. French surgeon Charles Dubost is shown discussing the harvesting of organs from executed prisoners for transplantation in the 1940s. The first successful organ transplant, of a kidney, was performed in 1954 by American surgeon Joseph Murray between identical twins. Murray recalls the victory, which proved that transplants were possible although rejection remained a barrier. We learn that Murray went on to perform transplants on unrelated patients using a drug developed to treat leukaemia. The increasing viability of transplant surgery necessitated a change in the definition of death from cessation of heart activity to brain death. Footage from Their Life is Your Hands, 1972, briefly explores the ethics of transplanting organs from the recently dead to the living. We then look back on the first heart transplant, performed in South Africa by Christiaan Barnard in 1953. Although the recipient lived for only two weeks, Barnard subsequently became a celebrity. Archive footage from Tomorrow{u2019}s World, 1969, features veterinarian Oliver Graham-Jones discussing the first pig-to-human transplant at The National Heart Hospital, which was immediately rejected. Despite the tragic outcome, Graham Jones maintains that {u2018}if we are to progress in this territory, there have to be brave men{u2019}. By the end of the 1960s the poor long-term success rates of heart transplantation resulted in a backlash against Barnard. In an extract from The Transplant Experience, 1976, a heart recipient describes his post-transplant existence as {u2018}like living on death row{u2019}. Mosley introduces the discovery of cyclosporine, a new immunosuppressant which led to a dramatic increase in survival rates. We are shown archival news footage of the first triple organ transplant performed at Papworth. Increased numbers of transplants led to a new problem, that of organ shortage. We revisit the launch of the National Organ Donor Scheme and witness doctors deciding the fate of patients at a weekly meeting of the renal unit at Guys Hospital (Their Life in Your Hands, 1972). The issue of living donors is introduced with a long extract from Breath of Life, 2000, featuring the Loughran family. Two siblings undergo living donor lung transplantation in an attempt to save the life of their sister Sheila who had cystic fibrosis. The elevated risks for donor and recipient become clear when we learn that Sheila died shortly afterwards from complications. Moving on to cosmetic transplants, we revisit the case of the first hand transplant recipient, Cliff Hallam, whose story featured in Superhuman, 2000. Hallam describes the negative psychological impact of the procedure and the severe side effects of immunosuppressant therapy. The section concludes with Newsnight footage from 2001 filmed prior to the removal of the limb. The creation of artificial hearts in the 1960s is explored in footage from Electric Heart, 1999. Michael DeBakey, who developed the technology, and Denton Cooley {u2013} the first to implant the device in a dying patient {u2013} are interviewed. DeBakey was hesitant to test his invention on humans following unsuccessful animal trials. His views contrast with Cooley{u2019}s, who claims he enjoyed doing something for the first time that others did not have the courage to attempt. Mosley then introduces the likely future of transplant surgery {u2013} using stem cells to create bespoke organs in the lab. Fix Me, 2009, features Dean, a patient with dilated cardiomyopathy. Dean travels to the University of Minnesota to meet Doris Taylor, a pioneer of stem cell research who shows him a beating, lab-generated, rat heart. Mosley concludes that millions have benefitted from the work of doctors prepared to take risks. Although it is hard to predict where the transplant story will take us next, future advances will no doubt bring their own set of moral dilemmas

Radical operation for carcinoma of the hypopharynx( Visual )

1 edition published in 1957 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate step-by-step a radical operation for carcinoma of the hypopharynx on a 59 year-old male clinical subject. In this presentation careful draping is done to permit movement of the patient'shead by the surgeon. A double Y incision is made to create four equal quadrilateral broad base flaps. All incisions are carried through the platysma muscle. The upper incision is started at the symphysis of the mandible and extends to the mastoid process on the right side. The dissection is carried out to the tail of the parotid using sharp, rapid dissection. The medial flap is created under the plane of the platysma muscle and carried beyond the strap muscles on the left side. The inferior flap is carried back to the anterior border of the trapezius muscle. The sternal and clavicular heads of the sternocleidomastoid muscle are dissected free and the dissection continues laterally along and above the line of the bony clavicle. The sternocleidomastoid muscle, omohyoid muscle, larynx, right lobe of the thyroid, 1 1/2 centimeters of cervical esophagus, and fatty and lymph tissues are removed. After wound irrigation, gowns, gloves, and instruments are changed. A permanent tracheal stoma is created and a feeding tube is passed. The mucosa of the pharynx and esophagus are closed longitudinally over this tube and the closure is reinforced with adjacent mylohyoid muscle. Another reinforcing suture of the mylohyoid muscle to the digastric muscle is done in this case. After another thorough irrigation of the wound, a double layer closure of the flaps is carried out

Excision of parotid tumor with preservation of the facial nerve( Visual )

1 edition published in 1960 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A case study of a sixty four year old man with a Warthin's tumor is used to illustrate surgical techniques which aid in the removal of the entire parotid gland without injuring the facial nerve. This man has a nontender, moderately firm, mobile mass measuring 3.5 by 2.5 centimeters beneath his left ear. During surgery a "Y" shaped incision which extends from in front of the ear, curves inferiorly around the ear lobe and progresses behind the ear into the retroauricular foldis made. The cervical extension of the incision goes anteriorly into the neck below the level of the mandible. Three landmarks, the upper end of the posterior belly of the digastric muscle, the sternocleidomastoid muscle and the mastoid process are used to identify the facial nerve. The use of blunt and sharp dissection, and hemostasis to expose the nerve and remove the tumor are shown. In this case all tissues superior to the nerve as it traverses across the side of the face are removed. The use of a nerve stimulator to further aid in the identification of the facial nerve is described. The program also discusses the gross and microscopic features of the tumor and reviews the anatomy of the facial nerve and itsrelationship to the anatomical structures in the lower portion of the face and neck
