Discussion Questions


 

Scroll down for more questions.

1. Identify CPR-related trauma in the chest.
 
 
2. There has been a VATS procedure and a chest tube inserted in the right lateral chest (near the mid-axillary line). Yet the Y-shaped incision is anterior. When is it ok to deviate from the Y-shaped incision?
 
 
3. In general, what are the goals of assessing a surgery? What kind of changes would you look for at autopsy?
 
 
4. Plan an autopsy assessment of an appendectomy from first incision to last, including the anatomic layers and structures, closure sites, anatomic alterations, possible complications and healing changes that would be part of your assessment.
 
 
5. Plan an autopsy assessment of a cholecystectomy, an inguinal hernia repair, a Roux-en-Y procedure, a coronary artery bypass graft surgery, a spinal fusion surgery, a knee replacement.
 
 
6. Plan an autopsy assessment of this VATS procedure (before viewing the subsequent parts, if possible). Does your plan differ from what this physician did in this case? How?
