afuturemd "What is it that I’m fighting?” That simple but fundamental question was posed to Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee by a patient who had just been diagnosed with cancer. As he considered the magnitude of the question, Sid realized that we, as a society, had not yet provided an answer. Thus, The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer was born. Four years after Sid’s biography of cancer became a New York Timesbestseller, I am honored to adapt his Pulitzer Prize-winning book to film. The Story of Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies is a three-part, six-hour major television event that will chronicle the past, present and future of cancer at a moment of enormous promise in the search for a cure.

afuturemd What Is Anthropodermic Bibliopegy, and How Do You Do It? "Rising in popularity during the 17th and 18th Centuries, the practice of binding books in human skin, anthropodermic bibliopegy, fell off due to its macabre nature near the end of the Victorian Age. Physicians enjoyed the practice, often using human skin, regardless of the source, to bind anatomy texts. A few examples of books with anthropodermic binding are bound out of affection for the author, but most early examples of anthropodermic bibliopegy are the result of human skin claimed from medical cadavers or criminals sentenced to death, with their skin used to bound the record of their trials as a form of punishment that surpasses death." Source: Keith Veronese, "Anthropodermic Bibliopegy, or The Truth About Books Bound In Human Skin". Photo: Houghton Library's copy of Des destinées de l'ame, bound in human skin, 1880s (Harvard University). 1mon

afuturemd Total Knee Arthroplasty. "Total knee replacement in some form has been practiced for over 50 years, but the complexities of the knee joint only began to be understood 30 years ago. Because of this, total knee replacement initially was not as successful as Sir John Charnley's artificial hip. However, dramatic advancements in the knowledge of knee mechanics have led to design modifications that appear to be durable.

Significant advances have occurred in the type and quality of the metals, polyethylene, and, more recently, ceramics used in the prosthesis manufacturing process, leading to improved longevity. As with most techniques in modern medicine, more and more patients are receiving the benefits of total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Approximately 130,000 knee replacements are performed every year in the United States."

The highly folded area of the brain is the cerebrum, which is responsible for conscious thought, emotion and voluntary movement. The orange arch beneath it is the corpus callosum, which facilitates communication between the hemispheres. At bottom right is the cerebellum, which controls muscle coordination and balance.

afuturemd "Coloured scanning electron micrograph (#SEM) of a section through #humanskin. The uppermost skin layer is the #epidermis (orange & yellow). The #stratum #corneum (top, orange) is a cornified layer composed of flattened, fused #keratin-rich cell remnants which forms the surface of the epidermis. The dead cells from this layer are continuously being shed and replaced from cells from the living #epidermal layers below (yellow). These layers contain keratinocytes, specialized cells that synthesize keratin. The lowest layer shown here is the #dermis (pink). The dermis is a thick layer of fibrous connective tissue which supports and nourishes the epidermis."

afuturemd Read, "Plan B for Medical School Hopefuls: Special Masters Programs" on Future M.D. (link in bio) ️ Which is better a post-bacc program or a special masters? #SMP #postbacc #premed #medschool #MCAT #medstudent #futuredoctor #medicalschool 3mon
  •   wheres_vicky_sandiego I'd have to say the special masters program if there wasn't much of a difference in the time away from med school. I men's getting a degree (one that can be used in medicine) out of the deal can only help, especially if you are looking at a post-bacc that requires you to take the MCAT again. 3mon
